Sony WF-SP800N Review: ANC earbuds fitter for fitness

Sony WF-SP800N Review: ANC earbuds fitter for fitness

Sony shook things up last year when it launched its first set of true wireless active noise-cancelling earbuds, and now the new WF-SP800N are here to pick up that torch. With waterproofing and a lower price tag, they don't replace the WF-1000XM3 but slot in underneath them. Still, there are some very good reasons why the SP800N might be the best fit for you.

Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro Review: Your fingers will thank you

Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro Review: Your fingers will thank you

It’s safe to say that I’ve waited 10 years for a proper iPad keyboard accessory from Apple. Was the wait for the Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro worth it? Absolutely. It's probably better to be late to the game but have a solid product, than to deliver something that’s mediocre - I’m looking at you, Folio Keyboard - though I can't help but wish it hadn't quite taken a whole decade to arrive.

Brydge Pro+ Review: The best iPad Pro keyboard doesn’t have an Apple logo

Brydge Pro+ Review: The best iPad Pro keyboard doesn’t have an Apple logo

Happy harmony is the new iPad Pro and Brydge's Pro+ keyboard, arguably the purest and best accessory out there for Apple's laptop-replacing tablet. If you want the simplest form of a keyboard attachment for the iPad Pro, I recommend skipping the review and heading straight to Apple.com to purchase the Magic Keyboard. If, however, you’re looking for the best typing experience available that happens to have an integrated trackpad and looks damn sleek, then keep reading my review of the Brydge Pro+. I promise it’ll be worth your time.

OnePlus Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger Review: Speed and sound

OnePlus Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger Review: Speed and sound

The OnePlus Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger was advertised as allowing you to charge a OnePlus 8 Pro smartphone from 0% to 50% in 29 minutes. This device has a single LED indicator light, a built-in fan, a vent, and a rubber bumper, as well as Qi/EPP cross compatibility (see disclaimer below). It also costs nearly $70 USD. Could such a charger be worth that kind of cash?

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Review

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Review

Samsung's Galaxy Buds+ may have had to share stage-time with the Galaxy S20 series and the Galaxy Z Flip at Unpacked 2019, but that's not to say the updated wireless earbuds weren't worth attention. Follow-up to last year's well-received Galaxy Buds, the new earbuds promise a boost in audio quality, usability, and battery life, though with an increase in price along the way.

Honda HRR Gas Lawn Mower Review: Winter wishes for summer reliability

Honda HRR Gas Lawn Mower Review: Winter wishes for summer reliability

I began writing this review when I started to use a Honda HRR push mower a couple of seasons ago. When this review process began, I assumed it'd be like any other. I was used to reviewing things like smartphones and computers - devices that aren't expected to last more than a few years for the average person. But this was to be no average review - this review became about more than just the one machine.

Autonomous SmartDesk Home Office Review: Standing desk on the cheap?

Autonomous SmartDesk Home Office Review: Standing desk on the cheap?

Over the past few weeks I've been using the Autonomous SmartDesk Hybrid-Edition while I work. This is a standing desk, but can also be used as a sitting desk. It has a control panel on its right side to adjust the heights at which it's able to rest. OF NOTE: This desk was originally called "Hybrid Edition" but is now called "Home Office" - you'll find that reflected on their listing site.

Rocketbook Beacons Review: a unique take on collaboration and planning

As a tech-oriented publication, it's only natural that the majority of the products, news, and trends we cover revolve around the latest gadgets and apps that proliferate in the modern world. Some people, however, have found not only some utility but even enjoyment in analog tools and workflows, especially the act of writing on paper or on boards. Rocketbook tries to appeal to this class of people with an important offer. Keep writing down your notes, ideas, diagrams, and mind maps but with the added conveniences of the cloud. The new Rocketbook Beacons are taking that promise and making it available on a larger scale, literally.

Hedkayse ONE Review: Multi-impact bike helmet for people who hate helmets

Hedkayse ONE Review: Multi-impact bike helmet for people who hate helmets

The Hedkayse ONE is a bicycle helmet made with several innovative design elements that, together, create a multi-impact, foldable, adjustable piece of head protection. For many years I've been stuck between cost and comfort in head protection whilst cycling. Most often this meant that I didn't wear a helmet when I should have, despite more-than-ample reason to take the time to attain the helmet that was right for me. I was extremely fickle. This summer I got to test out the helmet called Hedkayse ONE, and it changed the way I thought about helmets entirely.

Logitech MX Master 3 Review: MagSpeed mouse and MX Keys keyboard

Logitech MX Master 3 Review: MagSpeed mouse and MX Keys keyboard

Given how much time we spend with our hands on a keyboard and mouse, it's no surprise that people take peripherals seriously, and it's just that audience that Logitech is targeting with its new MX Master 3 range. The MX Master 3 Advanced Wireless Mouse and MX Keys keyboard are the fifth generation of the accessory-maker's MX-series, and while you may think getting text and cursor control right would be straightforward, it turns out keeping peripheral-enthusiasts happy is harder than it seems.

Rocketbook Fusion Review: adding structure to the hybrid notebook

Rocketbook Fusion Review: adding structure to the hybrid notebook

The launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 may have sparked questions on the long-term viability of the product line. The Galaxy Note is largely defined by its S Pen stylus, which may have already peaked at this point. Some, however, are not completely sold on that particular use case and would prefer the more traditional pen and paper method.

For years, the folks over at Rocketbook have been offering a rather unorthodox way to bridge the digital and analog worlds together and with the latest Rocketbook Fusion notebook, it is attempting to appeal to one of the most passionate users of paper notebooks around: organizers and planners.

Amazon Kindle Oasis Review (2019): An ereader you’ll warm to

Two years ago it felt like the Kindle Oasis answered most of the demands of avid readers, but Amazon's 2019 refresh of its most expensive ereader thinks it has something upgraders will warm to. Though it might not look different at first glance, the new Kindle Oasis (2019) promises to be easier on the eyes in return for the $250+ hit on your wallet, with a trick display that can adjust not only brightness but screen warmth, too.
