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.

Review: Plantronics BackBeat GO 600 headphones with bass boost button

At only $99.99, the BackBeat GO 600 are fairly inexpensive, but how do they compare to other budget headphones?

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.

Lenovo Mirage Camera Review: VR photography for dummies

Lenovo Mirage Camera Review: VR photography for dummies

Virtual reality is gaining steam, but what if you want to create content for the new headsets, not just consume it? That's where Lenovo's Mirage Camera comes in. Launching today alongside the Mirage Solo standalone VR headset, it's a twin-sensor camera designed to capture 3D photos and video without demanding professional videographer credentials first. That's a pretty big promise for a gadget under $300.

Lenovo Mirage Solo Review: Standalone Daydream VR with caveats

Lenovo Mirage Solo Review: Standalone Daydream VR with caveats

The Lenovo Mirage Solo is making a splash landing in the virtual reality headset market, and it's causing waves both in mobile and traditional VR. One of the small handful of truly standalone headsets, it doesn't demand you slot in your smartphone or plug into a gaming PC. Instead, Lenovo and Google are leveraging smartphone tech and some mighty clever inside-out tracking to give the Mirage Solo its edge - and justify its $400 price tag.

Huawei P20 Pro Review: The best sort of excess

Huawei P20 Pro Review: The best sort of excess

What with all the attention the Huawei P20 Pro has captured lately, you'd think the company would be having a good year. Then again, high-profile criticism by the US government hasn't exactly done wonders for the Chinese phone-maker's sales, nor its scuppered carrier deals. If there's one thing the P20 Pro demonstrates, however, it's that while Huawei may lack trust from some quarters, it certainly isn't short on imagination.

iPad Review 2018: This one’s for my kids

iPad Review 2018: This one’s for my kids

This newest iteration of the iPad isn't made for the people who buy a new iPad each time Apple makes one available. Instead, the iPad we're reviewing here today is the Cupertino company's continuation of a design that's already been proven to work. People that've never owned an iPad, people that haven't bought a new iPad for a half-decade, and people looking to buy iPads for schools - this is the iPad for you. I'm a parent, and it turns out this iPad is for my children and me, too.
