I regret buying the Switch Lite and you probably will, too

I'm a Nintendo Switch Lite owner and I have buyer's remorse. It's not that the Switch isn't a great console, because it absolutely is.

Games like Stardew Valley prove we’re in a gaming golden age

I have a tendency to be pretty negative in my opinion articles about video games, usually because those opinion posts are covering big publishers or the games they put out.

Consumer electronic prices have gotten out of hand

Apple just launched an expected but still surprising new product and, just like any other Apple product, it was priced beyond what most of its competitors would slap on. But even Apple's fans and customers were left scratching their heads at the AirPods Max's $549 price tag, wondering whether the company has finally lost it.

Could Royole FlexPai 2 be a foldable phone worth your cash

Could Royole FlexPai 2 be a foldable phone worth your cash
