Hisense $149 Chromebook review – Watch out, iPad

Hisense $149 Chromebook review – Watch out, iPad

This review contains a Chromebook, one that's set to take the lowest end of the laptop market for a ride. For those of you that have a single tablet sitting on your coffee table for anyone to use, this Chromebook's for you. If you've ever considered replacing the device you've been sharing from your pocket with one that sits on your mantle - this Chromebook's for you. This is the Hisense Chromebook, and it's simple. It's also so inexpensive that you won't cry (much) if your child destroys it. And what do you do with your hands when you're just sitting around at home, watching TV? That's right, fiddle around on the internet.

Nexus 9 Review: The iPad-Killer Blueprint

After a half-year on the market, the Nexus 9 remains one of the finest tablets available from any manufacturer. Like every Nexus device Google has ever offered, the HTC-made Nexus 9 was meant to be a blueprint - a benchmark for all other tablets. What we've done here is to take the Nexus 9 through the paces over a period of several months to give you an idea of what it's like to own this device for a real-life period of time, wear and tear included. Here we decide whether or not the Nexus 9 really should be considered the tablet you compare all other tablets to here and through the future.

Griffin Twenty review; the digital Bluetooth amp for all

Griffin Twenty review; the digital Bluetooth amp for all

There are all kinds of devices out there that want to usher your old tech into the new digital world. Some, like Blumoo, just want to let you control your TV from your smartphone. Some want to connect your car, and others want your home to be some sort of eerie automated cubby. Twenty just wants to save you from buying new speakers. The digital amplifier connects to existing home audio solutions (or desktop speakers!), and offers Bluetooth connectivity with your handheld gadgets.

Living with the new MacBook Retina

Living with the new MacBook Retina

There’s an unusual degree of forthrightness - sometimes bordering on vitriol - in how outspoken people are about the new MacBook Retina. It’s something you see occasionally with high-profile, edge-pushing devices: not just dissent as to whether it’s a good product to buy or not, but a sort of slightly-frothy aggression in aiming to convince you that you’ve made the wrong decision.

Moshi Urbana review; a modern take on the classic briefcase

Moshi Urbana review; a modern take on the classic briefcase

Urbana. The name alone screams Moshi’s ‘briefcase’ is for the city-dwelling folks. The design suggests lawyers with ten-gallon hats won’t be buying this one, but the rest of us should take note. Not your typical briefcase, the Urbana brings refined sophistication to the busy urban professional; the ones who catch trains, hail cabs, and take day flights between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Lightweight, feature-rich, and downright cool, Urbana has a little something for everyone who needs to bring it all with them.

Fotograf review; an easy, powerful iOS photo editor

Fotograf review; an easy, powerful iOS photo editor

I gushed about CameraBag 2 for OS X, and for good reason. It’s powerful, easy to use, and one of the best desktop photo editors around. The same team responsible for that desktop app also have a mobile photo editing app in Fotograf. Silly name, but Fotograf wants to be taken seriously in a competitive, crowded space. With apps like VSCO Cam, Snapseed, and Enlight looming large, Fotograf wants to be your mobile photo editing app of choice. Can the Nevercenter team replicate their solid desktop efforts via mobile?

Kodak PIXPRO SP360 Dome Action Camera Review

Kodak PIXPRO SP360 Dome Action Camera Review

The Kodak Pixpro SP360 Action Camera works with the ability to capture photos and video with a spherical lens. The data you capture with this lens can be viewed in a number of ways, the most interesting of these being an immersive virtual reality environment, with half of an orb available to you to capture the world around you. Just like this device's most well-known competitor, the GoPro camera, the Kodak Pixpro SP360 is also prepared to go hardcore with a variety of caps, covers, and cases.

CameraBag 2 review; simple, powerful photo editing on your Mac

CameraBag 2 review; simple, powerful photo editing on your Mac

Editing photos has become really simple, at least when it comes to mobile devices. With apps like VSCO Cam and Enlight dotting the landscape of mobile, you might wonder why you’d even take your photos to the desktop. The answer, more often than not, is power; your desktop apps typically have more (and better) editing tools, and better hardware to lean on. Should you sacrifice ease of use for power, though? Nope. CameraBag 2 doesn’t ask you to, either.

Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 Review: Surprisingly Good

Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 Review: Surprisingly Good

The device you're seeing here is not what it seems. While you might have never owned an Alcatel smartphone before - and you might never have even seen one in the wild - they've been around for a while. Here, with the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3, the company has created a device that aims to take out the top tier with a surprisingly lower-tier bit of cost. While this smartphone does not break the bank, it certainly brings some heat to the feet of its far more expensive competitors.

Zagg Pocket Keyboard Review – the last phablet keyboard you’ll ever need

Zagg Pocket Keyboard Review – the last phablet keyboard you’ll ever need

The Zagg Pocket Keyboard is a product I did not expect would be as awesome as it turned out to be. Zagg has made some awesome products in the past - they've never really let us down in the past - but they're not know for their particularly flashy or otherwise massively memorable presentations. That's not what we need here. What we need is a keyboard that works for a large smartphone - or any detached screen sort of device - that also folds down to a very small size. Zagg did it right.
