Amazon Fire TV Cube Review: Alexa, hide the remote

Amazon Fire TV Cube Review: Alexa, hide the remote

Alexa is coming for your living room and, just like the Borg cube that the Amazon Fire TV Cube might remind you of, resistance is futile. Amazon's virtual assistant may not be an entirely new addition to the TV experience, thanks to integrations into early Fire TV adapters and dongles, but the Fire TV Cube ousts buttons completely in favor of end to end voice control.

Oculus Go Review: So Simple, So Great

Oculus Go Review: So Simple, So Great

Be cautious when you see the headlines for this device - most people want to say one of two things. One, this is the device that will bring VR mainstream! Two, this device isn't any different than any smartphone VR system, and isn't worth your time. Today we're going to be real about this situation: If you've got $200, you want to own a VR headset, but you don't want to pay $400 for a full-powered PC headset plus full-powered PC (probably a thousand more dollars, or more), then this is your key: Oculus Go.

OnePlus 6 Review: It’s pretty darn good

OnePlus 6 Review: It’s pretty darn good

The OnePlus 6 is a device worth taking a peek at if you're in the market for a new phone. This is a handset that is at once a high-performer, low cost, and highly capable. It has an abundance of options and it's very good at what it's meant to do. For the average smartphone buyer in 2018, OnePlus 6 might just be the hottest ticket in town - right this minute, anyway.

Wyze Cam Pan Review

Wyze Cam Pan Review

Wyze made a name for itself with the launch of a $20 cube-shaped home security camera, and it recently brought attention back to that model with an update at the same price point. Now the company is back with yet another model, the Wyze Cam Pan. As the name suggests, this new model is capable of pan and tilt, greatly expanding its abilities for only ten bucks more.

YouTube Music Premium Review: Top Search, No Ads

YouTube Music Premium Review: Top Search, No Ads

This week we're taking a peek at the first release of YouTube Music Premium. That's not the same service as any one of Google's various Music-entwined services. Instead, it's an amalgamation of the parts that've worked for Google in the past. In our first look at this app and the full features it serves, I've come away cautiously optimistic.

2018 Lexus LC 500 Review: A movie star for the road

2018 Lexus LC 500 Review: A movie star for the road

If Lexus wanted to convince us that it was neither boring nor unimaginative, the 2018 LC 500 is the car to do it. Born of a melodramatic concept, translated with painstaking care to mass production, and tasked with changing decades of preconceptions at a price that's reasonably affordable, it's no surprise that the LC doesn't quite hit every note. Still, the delta between what this V8 GT promises and what it delivers is impressive.

Lenovo ThinkPad X280 Review

Lenovo ThinkPad X280 Review

One of the best business ultraportable product lines on the market, Lenovo's ThinkPad X Series, was recently updated with a new model: the ThinkPad X280. First introduced during CES 2018, this new model brings the same aesthetic of the ThinkPad X notebooks before it, but with updated hardware and features to match modern needs. As with past models, the X280 isn't cheap, and so it begs the question: is it worth the cost to upgrade?

Logitech G305 review: A LIGHTSPEED gaming mouse for the mainstream

Logitech G305 review: A LIGHTSPEED gaming mouse for the mainstream

I think it’s safe to say that Logitech has been crafting some really solid gaming mice lately. Back in March, I reviewed the G703 and G903 gaming mice, which both come with all the bells and whistles: RGB lighting, Powerplay support, HERO sensors, and LIGHTSPEED technology. I found them to be excellent mice, and I said at the time that they made the best argument yet for ditching your wired gaming mouse. With both of them, however, there was one big hang up: Price.

Molecule Mattress Review: Tech for Health

Molecule Mattress Review: Tech for Health

We are surrounded by technology throughout our waking hours. In fact, some of them, through devious intention or accidental side effect, seem to be designed to keep us awake. There has been a recent surge of interest in technologies that will help us stay fit but, again, they put more emphasis on being active and awake.

Very few focus on taking advantage of science and technology to give our bodies the boost they need during sleeping hours. One of those few is Molecule, a new startup that is breaking into the mattress market with a Mattress that will help you keep your cool and keep you sleeping soundly.

Kessel Run Millennium Falcon LEGO Review

Kessel Run Millennium Falcon LEGO Review

The newest Millennium Falcon LEGO set is here, and we're going down its hallways in detail. This is the Falcon as it existed in one of its earliest forms - the earliest we've yet seen it. This was back when Lando Calrissian owned the ship and the ship - man - it was clean. So clean it almost breaks the "used future" Science Fiction George Lucas originally pierced our collective consciousness with in A New Hope.

The Edge Desk Review

The Edge Desk Review

Over the past couple of weeks I've worked almost exclusively on The Edge Desk. This desk offers a unique way to work with a new way to sit. Instead of focusing all of my weight on my bottom and my lower back, The Edge Desk aims to spread that pressure to my legs and knees. The way I sit now is different from any position I've ever worked in before.
