Review: Lenovo ThinkPad P53 workstation

When it comes to getting serious work done, ordinary laptops aren't sufficient. Desktops can offer the most power, but the complete lack of portability makes them less than ideal for some users. That's where workstations come in. These laptops bring the performance capabilities of gaming laptops, but with the features and security considerations that professionals need. Lenovo offers a number of workstations in its P Series line, one of the latest models being the ThinkPad P53.

Pokemon Sword and Shield review: Same as it ever was

Pokemon Sword and Shield review: Same as it ever was

At this point, I think it’s safe to say that Pokemon Sword and Shield are the most controversial Pokemon releases we’ve ever seen. Game Freak’s announcement that Sword and Shield wouldn’t feature a full national Pokedex was the straw that broke the camel’s back for a lot of people, and after that, we saw a wave of criticism coming from longtime Pokemon fans online.

Over the past few weeks I've been using the Autonomous SmartDesk Hybrid-Edition while I work. This is a standing desk, but can also be used as a sitting desk. It has a control panel on its right side to adjust the heights at which it's able to rest. OF NOTE: This desk was originally called "Hybrid Edition" but is now called "Home Office" - you'll find that reflected on their listing site.

Review: TiVo Edge DVR with voice remote control

Earlier this year, TiVo introduced its new Edge DVR, a model featuring a new angular design and the same type of thick remote control included with the older Bolt DVR model.

Google Stadia Review: Amazing, for now

Google Stadia Review:  Amazing, for now

When this Google Stadia Review was first posted, the service hadn't yet formally launched. Google sent the Founders Package to a set of sources that got an early look and were invited to review the game streaming system before the official Google Stadia release date of November 19, 2019. As such, we gave the service an early once-over review with what we'd experienced thus far. As the service evolves, we'll be updating this review accordingly - so stay tuned!

Star Wars: The Mandalorian AT-ST Raider LEGO Review

The LEGO Star Wars set 75254 "AT-ST Raider" rolls with one of the most epic-looking pieces of hardware in The Mandalorian.

Nest Wifi Review – Mesh network with a side of Google Assistant

Google's Nest Wifi arrives as mesh networking is firmly embedding itself in the mainstream. Three years ago, Google Wifi surfed into homes at the bleeding edge of mesh, promising whole-home coverage with multiple interconnected routers filling in any dead spots.

Apple AirPods Pro Review – Why less noise costs more

Apple AirPods Pro Review – Why less noise costs more

If the AirPods' convenience was enough to make Apple's fully-wireless earbuds a runaway hit, adding active noise cancellation could send them stratospheric. That's the theory behind the Apple AirPods Pro, anyway, instantly familiar at first glance but packing the sort of sound isolation that city dwellers, office workers, and frequent fliers dream of. At $249 they may not be cheap, but can the AirPods Pro make up for that in the ears?
