Microsoft Surface Go 2 review

Microsoft Surface Go 2 review

You talked, Microsoft listened, and so here comes the Surface Go 2 tablet to leave you no excuse for not putting a slim slice of Windows 10 in your bag. The headline number is, of course, the $399.99 starting price. The reality, as I discovered, is that Microsoft's tablet isn't quite the no-brainer bargain it bills itself as.

2020 Porsche Macan Turbo review: A twin-turbo life lesson

2020 Porsche Macan Turbo review: A twin-turbo life lesson

I've tried restraint, and honestly I don't much like it. I was reminded of that fact multiple times when behind the wheel of the 2020 Porsche Macan Turbo: after all, it's been just two months since I proclaimed the Macan S the sweet-spot for sports crossovers, and already I was starting to question my resolve.

Conquering the Backlog Part 4: I’m addicted to Terraria again

Conquering the Backlog Part 4: I’m addicted to Terraria again

Around this time last week, I was writing about how the release of Terraria: Journey's End threatened to derail my quest to complete as many games in my backlog as possible. Terraria is one of my favorite games, and with each major update, it seems I can't resist the urge to dive back in for another several hundred hours. Past Eric, however, was optimistic that even though this Terraria update looked like the most exciting one yet, he'd be able to at least keep some focus on his immediate goal of completing Ori and the Will of the Wisps.

Google Pixel Buds review (2020): No cord but caveats

It's been a long time, in tech industry terms, since Google announced its second-generation Pixel Buds, and it's fair to say that the truly wireless earbud category has moved on considerably in the meantime. In all honesty, I expected to be blown away by Google's promised sound quality, comfort, and features for the Pixel Buds' $179 price tag.

The 2021 Porsche 911 Targa roof is basically engineering poetry

The 2021 Porsche 911 Targa roof is basically engineering poetry

Porsche's new 2021 911 Targa 4S may have a 0-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds, but it's the 19 seconds that the roof takes to open or close that's probably more mesmerizing. On paper, it's a simple thing: a soft top and a glass rear window, each moving to turn the new 911 Targa from a coupe into an open-top, and vice-versa.

Braven BRV-XXL/2 Review: Your beefy bass buddy

Braven BRV-XXL/2 Review: Your beefy bass buddy

Bluetooth speakers so vast they demand their own carry handle may trade portability for punch, but when social distancing says you can't go further than the garden you might as well drag some music out there with you. Braven's BRV-XXL/2 is one such example of high-volume company for the COVID-19 pandemic, and it'll even be your drinking buddy too.

Conquering the Backlog Part 3: Terraria Journey’s End messed up all my plans

Another week is in the bag, which means it's time for another progress report on my New Year's resolution of working through my extensive backlog of games. I haven't had as much free to time to play games this past week, but when I have had the time, I've been chipping away at Ori and the Will of the Wisps. I'm fairly deep into that game now, but unfortunately, there's something that threatens to sideline Ori for the foreseeable future: Terraria.

iRobot’s Roomba i7+ robot vacuum has been perfect pandemic company

iRobot’s Roomba i7+ robot vacuum has been perfect pandemic company

You'd think that, after all this time at home waiting out the COVID-19 pandemic, I'd have got around to vacuuming more. Instead I've been offloading most of the responsibility to a robot, with iRobot's Roomba i7+ arguably turning out to be the best company you could hope for (apologies to my spouse and cat) when you're trapped indoors but still housework-averse.

NASA’s Artemis Accords are controversial new rules of space

NASA has revealed the Artemis Accords, a set of principles guiding its upcoming crewed mission to the Moon and, beyond that, deeper into space to destinations like Mars. The guidelines and commitments cover topics like transparency, release of scientific data, and avoiding littering space with mission junk. However they're unlikely to reassure anybody who suspects Artemis is also a lunar resources land-grab.
