Elecwave Omni-directional OTA Antenna Review: totally free TV for cord-cutters

Elecwave Omni-directional OTA Antenna Review: totally free TV for cord-cutters

If you've ditched cable for good, the first place you should look for an alternative is over-the-air television -- it offers some of the same channels you were paying for, after all, only they're free. Gone are the days of massive TV antenna dishes; replacing them are relatively small antennas like the Elecwave model we're reviewing. With the right antenna, you'll be able to pick up over-the-air networks from many dozens of miles away, but a low-quality antenna is almost as bad as not having any antenna at all. How does this Elecwave model perform?

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 Review: A bad end to an OK series

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 Review: A bad end to an OK series

It seemed that after the lackluster standalone installment On Stranger Tides, the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise was finally over, having ended on a bad note after resurrecting the original, and decent enough, trilogy. That wasn't the case, as everyone knows by now. The fifth and final installment, Dead Men Tell No Tales, arrived in theaters late last week to give audiences one last experience with series favorite Jack Sparrow. Unfortunately he, and the rest of the movie, fell flat.

Kangaroo Mobile Desktop Pro Review: a tiny battery-powered Windows 10 PC

Kangaroo Mobile Desktop Pro Review: a tiny battery-powered Windows 10 PC

You've no doubt seen miniature PCs -- small sticks and blocks that scarcely take up room on a desk. The Kangaroo Mobile Desktop Pro is similar, but takes the idea of portable to a whole new level: this PC is small enough to slip into a pocket and it features an internal battery to keep things running when not plugged in. That makes the Kangaroo Pro far more convenient in certain situations, making transfers between stations as simple as unplugging the computer from one device and plugging it into another. How does it live up to everyday usage, though? Read on to find out!

Lenovo Yoga 720 Review — a slim, premium laptop with Thunderbolt

Lenovo has updated its Yoga 700 product line with a new model, the Lenovo Yoga 720.

Lenovo is back with a new all-in-one desktop computer, the IdeaCentre AIO 910.

Lenovo X1 Carbon (5th Gen) Review: Almost perfect

Lenovo X1 Carbon (5th Gen) Review: Almost perfect

Imagine pulling a laptop out of its box for the first time, only to worry that it may not include a battery due to its insanely light weight. That was my first thought when I retrieved the latest Lenovo X1 Carbon (5th generation) from its box. It's hard to imagine that this laptop is powered by anything other than thin air, mostly because it's hard to imagine there's an entire set of hardware -- including a battery, of course -- inside this thin and light body. What kind of sacrifices had to be made to produce such a svelte laptop? Surprisingly few, it turns out.

Every home should have a security camera even if it's just for peace of mind. There's no shortage of options on the market, and just about every budget range is covered. The lower one goes on the budget scale, though, the higher one's odds of picking up a low-quality, inferior product.
