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.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ Review: The difference a Plus makes

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ should be a tougher sell than it actually is. A $1,100 Android phone, scaled so vast that many will struggle to comfortably hold it, the defining feature of which is a pop-out stylus... and yet here we are, in 2019, with a flagship that boasts such user goodwill that even a history of immolation cannot derail it. As always, Samsung has thrown the kitchen sink at its newest Note, but now more than ever the results are mixed.

SunBriteTV Veranda 55-inch Outdoor TV (2019) Review

SunBriteTV makes televisions that are meant to be used outdoors. Not out in the jungle or on a camping trip, but in environments where a person might want to see a TV screen while eating a meal or having a party - places that usually have chairs. The SunBriteTV set we're reviewing today was made for the least extreme of three categories of outdoor-friendly TV, complete with a weather-sealed body for protection from the weather and wildlife.

Chuwi GBox Pro Review: lite mini PC for lite budgets

News in the computing and tech world often highlights the spectacular and, sometimes, the extravagant. While it's understandable that we get attracted by shiny products and powerful devices, not all consumers are swayed by those factors. Some need simpler yet still usable computers that can not only fit their budgets but also fit their aesthetic tastes as well. Those buyers might want to take the Chuwi GBox Pro into consideration. Despite the "Pro" in its name feeling like a letdown, the small box still has a lot to offer those with more constrained budgets.

Review: Optoma NuForce BE Free6 truly wireless earbuds

Review: Optoma NuForce BE Free6 truly wireless earbuds

Optoma is back with a new pair of truly wireless earbuds with its $99 NuForce BE Free6. This isn't the company's first AirPods competitor, but it is the best model Optoma has offered to date, at least when it comes to audio without wires. The BE Free6 feels like a premium product without the premium price tag, but how does the model hold up against competitors?

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 4K (7th-gen) hands-on review

The last time I laid eyes on the ThinkPad 7th-generation X1 Carbon laptop from Lenovo was at CES in early January. Exactly eight months later, a fully-spec’d out review unit landed on my doorstep. Lenovo allows the buyer to customize the X1 according to their needs and, more importantly, what their budget permits.

Chuwi HiPad LTE Review: budget tablet for work and play

Chuwi HiPad LTE Review: budget tablet for work and play

Android tablets are dead, at least as far as Google and most Android OEMs are concerned. The few holdouts include Samsung, Huawei, Lenovo, and Amazon. If you want to see movement and signs of life, you'll have to think out of the box and look to other markets were Android tablets remain and even thrive in an almost underground ecosystem populated by lesser-known players. One of those is Chuwi, a smaller yet long-time competitor in the Android and Windows devices market in China. It has recently launched the HiPad LTE tablet with one premise: you don't need to break your bank account to have quality, productivity, and entertainment all in one tablet. We take the Chuwi HiPad LTE for a spin to see if that promise matches reality.

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C8 Interior Review: Cabin Fever

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C8 Interior Review: Cabin Fever

There’s a reason why Chevrolet revealed the 2020 C8 Corvette Stingray during the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing. The new mid-engine Corvette is one small step for Chevy, and one giant leap for the American-built sports car industry. It sounds like I’m exaggerating - maybe even like I'm a star-struck fan - but having had the chance to get up close and personal with the 2020 Corvette I’m pretty convinced it'll create a huge tsunami in the world of high-performance cars.

IKEA SYMFONISK Review: Sonos’ Swedish speaker stars

IKEA SYMFONISK Review: Sonos’ Swedish speaker stars

IKEA and Sonos are the WiFi speaker partnership we never knew we needed, but SYMFONISK could well propel the category into the mainstream. Combining the focus of the price-obsessed Swedish retailer with the increasingly-capable connected speaker specialist, the result is a pair of streaming speakers that are not only affordable but don't sacrifice performance and quality in the process. Frankly, it all sounded too good to be true.

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.

Super Mario Maker 2 review: Beautiful insanity

Super Mario Maker 2 review: Beautiful insanity

If there was any reason at all to own a Wii U, Super Mario Maker was it. Super Mario Maker was so unique and so popular that I think if it would have been a launch title, the Wii U may have succeeded despite all that was working against it. Super Mario Maker 2 on Switch, then, was inevitable, and if you’re looking for more of a good thing, you’ll definitely find it here. Unfortunately, it isn’t all sunshine and daisies in the world of Super Mario Maker 2, as the consistent problems with Nintendo Switch Online hold this game back from achieving true greatness.
