Autonomous SmartDesk Home Office Review: Standing desk on the cheap?

Autonomous SmartDesk Home Office Review: Standing desk on the cheap?

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.

iPhone 11 Smart Battery Case camera button secrets revealed by iFixit X-Ray

iPhone 11 Smart Battery Case camera button secrets revealed by iFixit X-Ray

When Apple unveiled its smart battery cases back in 2015 for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, it was ridiculed for the massive bump that ruined the phone's clean aesthetic. It was almost as if the company was getting back at people who have been clamoring for such an accessory but Apple never backed down from that "humpback" design. In fact, it has embraced it even further this year by adding a new function, a physical camera button. It wasn't completely magical but was still novel enough for iFixit to want to look inside without tearing it down at all.

Apple online store customer reviews have been removed

Apple online store customer reviews have been removed

When you remove something that has been, for years, a standard fixture not to mention common practice, you can't help if people start asking questions. When you do so silently with no subsequent explanation, then you can't blame them for coming up with theories, even ones that don't paint you in a positive light. That may be the situation that Apple is facing after it has been discovered that it very quietly removed the "Reviews & Ratings" section of product pages on its online Store, leaving many to wonder if Apple is sourgraping over a flood of negative comments.

PopSockets PopGrip AirPods Holder gives the case a home behind an iPhone

The AirPods may have been initially derided for their design but, just like any Apple products, they have become the new normal as far as True Wireless Stereo earbuds go. Despite their status, even AirPods fans still have a few complaints, including how easy it is to lose or forget the oh so essential charging case. If only there was a way to keep the AirPods case always with you as much as your iPhone.

Apple iPhone 11 Smart Battery Case has a dedicated camera button

Apple iPhone 11 Smart Battery Case has a dedicated camera button

As expected, Apple has launched a Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 11 family. From an aesthetic standpoint, this case is mostly what we'd expect, as it still features that distinctive bump on the back. The stated goal of extending your phone's battery is also the same, but this case in particular has a nifty feature that might help it stand out from all the other battery cases vying for your dollar.

Google Stadia Controller CLAW clip now has a price tag, still no date

Google Stadia Controller CLAW clip now has a price tag, still no date

Stadia is quickly becoming one of Google's most controversial products and, for the first time, it's not because of privacy concerns. The launch has been rocky at best but Google really has little choice but to keep moving forward. In fact, it has just put up the product page for what is perhaps Stadia's first nonessential accessory, a $15 clip that holds your Pixel phone in place above the Stadia Controller. Presuming you have both, of course.

RODE VideoMic NTG brings new NTG5 shotgun tech to an on-camera mic

Just last month, the audio experts over at RODE launched the NTG5, its most advanced shotgun mic to date. But while such large and powerful audio recording equipment always has a place in someone's arsenal, some users may need something lighter and more compact but won't skimp on quality in exchange. That's where the new VideoMic NTG comes in, continuing a 15-year line of on-camera microphones, this time with some of the perks of the NTG5 shotgun.

Sony SRS-WS1 is a wireless speaker you wear around your neck

Sony SRS-WS1 is a wireless speaker you wear around your neck

Wireless audio equipment have gotten a surge of popularity and innovation, in no small part thanks to the demise of the venerable headphone jack on smartphones. A variety of wireless headsets have popped up, ranging from gigantic over ear cups to not so tiny earbuds. The Sony SRS-WS1 Immersive Wireless Speaker may, at a quick glance, look like one of those neck brace earphones like the LG Tone series. The difference, however, is that this pillow like contraption that hangs around your neck is no headphones. It is a full blown speaker.

Logitech G Adaptive Gaming Kit wants to outfit your Xbox Adaptive Controller

Logitech G Adaptive Gaming Kit wants to outfit your Xbox Adaptive Controller

Last year, Microsoft got a lot of positive attention when it launched its Xbox Adaptive Controller. The controller, essentially, is meant to be a customizable input method for those with disabilities, sporting two oversized buttons and a traditional D-pad on the front. With a row of 3.5mm jacks running along the top of the controller, the Xbox Adaptive Controller allows for a fine level of customization, assuming that users can find attachments that fit their needs. Logitech is looking to help with that last part by announcing the Logitech G Adaptive Gaming Kit today.

Google Stadia Controller manual appears online ahead of launch day

Game controllers are a dime a dozen these days and most of them practically function similarly. That's mostly thanks to the fact that consoles haven't changed that much in the past decade. With a new kind of gaming experience coming in just a few days, the Google Stadia Controller may have a few unique things to offer. Fortunately, Google has now published the peripheral's support page to give users a heads up on what to expect.

Master & Dynamic MH40 wireless headphones cut cord on a fan-favorite

Master & Dynamic is turning five years old, and because of that milestone, it's releasing a wireless version of its MH40 headphones. The original MH40 is one of Master & Dynamics more successful models, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to see it get a wireless version. The headphones are launching today, but if you want a pair for yourself, you'll need to plop down a fair amount of cash.

8BitDo N30 2.4g is a wireless mouse in NES Controller clothing

What is old is new again, or something like that. The past years have seen the proliferation of retro gaming consoles, shrunk down to the size of your hand (or hands) as well as designs that try to appeal to the powerful and apparently profitable sentiment of nostalgia. Most of them try to bring back the past to the present as they were, prioritizing design fidelity over modern utility. To that extent, this new 8BitDo N30 2.4g wireless mouse is different, bringing the aesthetic of an age long gone to a tool few people can't live without these days.
