Ergo Kiwi Review: CNC-cut, 3D printed, ergonomic craft blade handle

Ergo Kiwi Review: CNC-cut, 3D printed, ergonomic craft blade handle

The Ergo Kiwi is the best ergonomically-sound X-ACTO blade knife that I've ever used. And I've used a lot. I've used every sort of blade from the most basic $6 metal original-brand knife to the rubbery silicone of the X2000 (my favorite up until now). The Ergo Kiwi is the first 3rd-party craft knife holder (base for X-ACTO knives) that I've been able to use for more than one project - nothing else really made the grade, so to speak.

Huawei Watch GT Review: Life After Android

In our Huawei Watch GT Review, we explore the pros and cons of buying a wearable device in a post-WearOS market. It's time to move beyond the basics in the smartwatch world - or at least that's what the Huawei Watch GT believes. In this device is the "One" sort of smartwatch, bringing the most essential elements of the most basic smartwatches made in the last few years - to a new sort of device. You'd be forgiven for thinking this was just another Android WearOS smartwatch, but it's not! Instead, it's running Huawei's own LightOS, an operating system that's... different?

Nuraphone G2 Review

Nuraphone G2 Review

Rarely do you need to review a product twice, even electronic devices that receive occasional or regular software updates. There are rare times, however, when an update changes the game so significantly that it almost feels like you’re using a completely different and newer product. That’s the miracle that Australian startup Nura tried to pull off with the G2 update to its already groundbreaking wireless headset. But does the nuraphone G2 leave up to the company’s own high standards? We prick up our ears to find out.

Honor 10 Lite Review: Honor 8X on a budget

Honor 10 Lite Review: Honor 8X on a budget

Honor, an independent Huawei subsidiary, is well-known and well-loved for offering high-end specs, higher than Xiaomi's, at lower prices. In some cases, it almost rivals its parent by putting almost the same specs and features as, say, a P or Mate series into a more affordable package with only a few compromises. That said, it also has room for smartphones a little lower down the ladder for those with even tighter budgets. The Honor 10 Lite is the latest in that roster and we take it for a spin to see whether it cuts off too many corners in the process.

Jaybird Tarah Pro Wireless Sports Headphones Review: Fit for Purpose

Jaybird Tarah Pro Wireless Sports Headphones Review: Fit for Purpose

On the box - Dreams of promise

Holding the Jaybird Tarah Pro box in my hand, I’m struck by the image of a mountain runner moving fast and free as a bird over technical terrain. A lone human in a range of misty mountains – with no visible sign of dangling wires; simplicity at its best. Man in nature with the Tarah Pro delivering driving beats to override a mental, emotional, and physical state of exhaustion. I connect instantly with the image, since, I myself, am a mountain runner - one whose been on the hunt for the perfect sport headsets. Heartbroken, at having cycled through four pairs of dead-beat buds over the last year... might I have found my best buds ever? Tarah Pro offers me some real hope.

New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe review: The toad princess cometh

New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe review: The toad princess cometh

Of all of the Wii U games Nintendo has been porting over to the Switch, New Super Mario Bros. U is arguably the biggest. With Breath of the Wild launching so late in the Wii U’s lifecycle, I think it’s fair to consider New Super Mario Bros. U the flagship Nintendo title for the platform, and it’s one that could certainly benefit from exposure to a larger audience. This port is also another chance for Nintendo to flex its platformer prowess and show us once more why Mario is the reigning king of video games.

Olympus OM-D E-M1X hands-on: A Pro-ready portable powerhouse

There are just some things that seem to be mutually exclusive. Night and day, power and portability, complexity and reliability. So when someone comes up with a way to bring opposites together, it’s almost always regarded as nothing short of genius. It may not be aiming for something quite as lofty as that, but Olympus may have just checked off just the right boxes to make it so. With the new OM-D E-M1X, Olympus is offering a highly portable yet powerful camera that professionals can rely on all the time, no matter the conditions.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 Review: Behold the Display Beast

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 review you're about to read is centered on battery life, real-world use, and long-term viability. Some of this will need to be estimated based on the amount of time we've had the device thus far - we've not yet had the Mi Mix 3 for a long term. As we continue to use the Mi Mix 3, we'll continue to update the review.

The new Nissan Leaf is the everyman EV

The new Nissan Leaf is the everyman EV

You could forgive the Nissan Leaf for feeling overlooked in the electric car segment. Tesla may get the lion's share of the attention, particularly over the past eighteen months with the Model 3, but it's Nissan's far more affordable EV that has become the world's best-seller. Now, there's a brand new Leaf, completely reworked to reflect the changes in the electric vehicle landscape since the original debuted back in 2010.

2018 Lincoln Navigator Review: Brash 3-row SUV royalty

2018 Lincoln Navigator Review: Brash 3-row SUV royalty

Big, lavish SUVs are big, money-making business right now, and little screams comfortable excess like the Lincoln Navigator. Two decades of the automaker's burly people-carrier - punctuated with appearances in rap songs and spats with Cadillac's Escalade - have seen it both grow-up and glow-up, but it's with the arrival of the fourth-generation that the Navigator has truly reclaimed its ostentatious identity.

2018 Jaguar E-PACE Review: Mistaken Identity

2018 Jaguar E-PACE Review: Mistaken Identity

"No, you're thinking of the I-PACE, this is the normal one. No, you do need to put gas into it, it's not electric. No, I don't know why they named them like that, either." Like trotting out the 0-60 time of a supercar, or the tow rating for a truck, you get used to explaining the 2018 Jaguar E-PACE's oddest feature - its name - at gas stations or in parking lots.

Surface Go with Linux Review: almost the perfect open source notepad

Surface Go with Linux Review: almost the perfect open source notepad

You have probably had your fill of Surface Go reviews that seem to split the tech world in two. You’ve also most likely seen the brawls between the Surface Go and the iPad Pro, especially those revolving around the rhetoric of real PCs. So why not have yet another Surface Go review? This time, however, we’ll take a rather different spin and highlight one aspect that really does make the Surface Go a “real PC”: being able to install other operating systems like Linux. And in that regard, it is near perfect as an on-the-go Linux digital notepad.
