Skullcandy Jib True Review: An ultra-cheap AirPods alternative

Skullcandy Jib True Review: An ultra-cheap AirPods alternative

True wireless earbuds are the latest evolution in personal audio technology, and though some diehard wired earbuds fans aren't ready to move on yet, the gradual elimination of the audio jack from smartphones makes the eventual transition to Bluetooth inevitable. The AirPods are still the best-known true wireless earbuds available, but the market has seen a number of notable competitors and the budget options are better than ever.

2020 Mazda6 Review – Poised and Practical

2020 Mazda6 Review – Poised and Practical

My first surprise when the 2020 Mazda6 arrived was the color. Mazda sure does love its Soul Red - and with good reason - but the Signature-spec sedan was a far more sober Machine Gray metallic. The second surprise was the price.

3Doodler Pro+ Review – An upgrade, not for all

3Doodler Pro+ Review – An upgrade, not for all

The 3Doodler Pro+ is a 3D printing pen. It's very similar to the first several 3Doodler devices, all of which are still very capable tools. The 3Doodler Pro+ tweaks the abilities of the otherwise most advanced 3Doodler 3D printing pen, refining the experience with new materials, new pen tips, and a more sleek industrial design.

Planet Computers Cosmo Communicator Review – It’s all about the keyboard

Planet Computers Cosmo Communicator Review – It’s all about the keyboard

The next time someone tells you all new smartphones look the same, show them Planet Computers' Cosmo Communicator. Promising the typing convenience of a physical keyboard, the flexibility of dual-booting Android and Linux, and the pure geek-appeal of anything that looks like a laptop but still fits in a (large) pocket, it's a clamshell unlike pretty much anything else on the market.

2020 Porsche 718 Cayman T Review – Wiser Choices

2020 Porsche 718 Cayman T Review – Wiser Choices

Wisdom, as an enthusiast, basically boils down to knowing when to spend and when to save, and few cars illustrate that quite as neatly as the 2020 Porsche 718 Cayman T. Purists and badge-zealots may sniff that, because it doesn't have "911" on the trunk, this isn't the "proper" Porsche coupe. They're wrong.

Apple iPhone 12 mini Review – Small Surprise

Apple iPhone 12 mini Review – Small Surprise

The iPhone 12 mini has no right being the cheapest model in Apple's iPhone 12 family. Sure, on paper you're spending the smallest amount on the smallest display, but - like the most engaging gadgets - the spec comparisons simply don't capture the true charm. It may be mini in your hand, but the iPhone 12 mini maxes out on appeal.

Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max Review – A Milestone Decision

Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max Review – A Milestone Decision

Pictures don't quite prepare you for the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Apple's newest flagship sits at the top of a four phone family for 2020, and you could be forgiven for assuming that distinguishing between them would be tricky. The truth, though, is that the biggest of the iPhone 12 series - and indeed the biggest iPhone ever - stands out clearly, though in the process it forces you to decide just what your priorities are.

Apple iPad Air (2020) Review – Marvel in the Middle

Apple iPad Air (2020) Review – Marvel in the Middle

I've been using the new iPad Air (2020) for the past few weeks, throwing everything from writing and emailing to media editing at Apple's midrange tablet, and I'm struggling to figure out why most people should step up to the iPad Pro. The middle ground between the entry-level iPad and Apple's Pro series has always been a tricky one, but this latest Air nudges so close to what 90-percent of users are likely to need, it makes an instant case as the go-to Apple tablet right now.

Nokia 8.3 5G Review – Just the big basics

Nokia 8.3 5G Review – Just the big basics

The Nokia 8.3 5G is the perfect smartphone for a certain sort of person. If you're looking for a smartphone that has a modern processor, made by a major label company, runs Android One (so you know it'll get updates from Google), has access to 5G data speed, has a sizeable display, and works with an at-least-usable set of cameras, this is the phone for you. The Nokia 8.3 5G is not the most extravagant phone in the world - it's the best at most of what it aspires to be.

2021 BMW 330e Review – No, really, it’s a plug-in hybrid

2021 BMW 330e Review – No, really, it’s a plug-in hybrid

Some electrified cars can't stop shouting about their green credentials, but the 2021 BMW 330e sedan is a little more surreptitious about its plug-in hybrid status. Then again, were I a member of the latest 3 Series family, I'd probably not want my electric drive to potentially overshadow the rest of the features that have long made BMW's compact sedan a best-seller. It's all about balance, and when it comes to going green that can be a tricky thing to judge.

X-Chair X-HMT Heat and Massage Therapy Chair Review

The folks at X-Chair have an office chair - or gaming chair, or sit-wherever chair, if you like - called the X-HMT. The HMT stands for Heat, Massage, Therapy. This chair is more than what I expected when I first read about its release. It's not just your everyday average super-comfortable long-lasting computer chair. This chair rumbles, heats up, and can be charged by your laptop.
