Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review

If there’s a bittersweet lesson from Star Wars: The Last Jedi it’s that, whether you’re good or you're evil, sometimes you have to give up on what's most heartfelt before it brings about your downfall. That’s a lesson which fans must learn too, as they navigate how The Last Jedi embraces some of the franchise's core concepts while rejecting others. In Star Wars, the deaths might be bloodless but that doesn't make the losses hurt any less.

Nine months with Nintendo Switch

Nine months with Nintendo Switch

It's sort of hard to believe, but it's been a whole nine months since the Nintendo Switch launched. Part of what makes that feel unbelievable is just how big of a year the Switch has had. 2017 was indeed packed for the Switch, and as we close in on the end of the Switch's first full year of retail availability, it's clear that Nintendo is onto something special.

2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Review: The “Sport” in SUV

2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Review: The “Sport” in SUV

Alfa Romeo isn't a name you associate with SUVs, but the 2018 Stelvio would like to change that. Aggressively targeting the popular - and growing - premium SUV market, it takes a risk on the idea that, for all owners may make aspirational noises about broaching the outdoors, in reality they seldom road beyond asphalt. Accept that, and suddenly all that all-wheel drive traction can be used for something else.

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon review: Second time’s a charm

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon review: Second time’s a charm

A year ago, I reviewed Pokemon Sun and Moon and found that the changes they brought to the long-running (and in many ways stale) Pokemon series were great. After all, Pokemon is not usually a series that makes drastic changes from game to game. Though Pokemon Sun and Moon are completely different than Pokemon Red and Blue, that isn’t the result of some sweeping reinvention, but rather incremental changes that have been implemented over the course of the series. With Pokemon Sun and Moon, Game Freak rethought its approach and took more risks, and the results were very successful.

2017 Ford Focus RS Review: Sideways seduction

2017 Ford Focus RS Review: Sideways seduction

Along came the third-generation Ford Focus RS, and all anybody could talk about was Drift mode. Seldom has a vehicle made going sideways such a priority, yet in all the "road-going rally car" furore the RS' true talents were starting to get overlooked.

2017 GMC Acadia Denali AWD Review: The “U” in SUV

2017 GMC Acadia Denali AWD Review: The “U” in SUV

If there's one truth about the auto industry, it's that as the years go on, cars have only become bigger. Coupes get lower and longer, sedans pack in more wheelbase like middle-aged spread, and SUVs demand more and more square feet on the asphalt.
Clearly, the 2017 GMC Acadia didn't get that memo.

Rylo Review: This 360-degree camera has a film crew inside

Rylo Review: This 360-degree camera has a film crew inside

360-degree video may be niche, but startup Rylo wants to do more imaginative things with spherical video: shoot first, then worry about composition later. Brainchild of two former Instagram engineers, the $499 camera can happily capture all the 4K 360-degree footage you want, but it really comes into its own when you use its powerful editing options to extract a regular 1080p with virtual pans, tracking, and more. Factor in excellent stabilization and a simple app, and you have to ask whether this is the future of action cameras.

Surface Book 2 Review (15-inch): The MacBook Pro eater

Surface Book 2 Review (15-inch): The MacBook Pro eater

If you were crafting a recipe for the perfect performance notebook, the Surface Book 2 15-inch wouldn't be a bad place to start. Microsoft's move to "lead by example" in Windows 10 laptops still wows, with its detachable screen and crisp, premium hardware, even two years after its original debut. Still, for all its battery life and design cred, the Surface Book wasn't perfect. Embracing USB-C, a larger 15-inch screen, and some of the beefiest specifications this side of a gaming PC, the Surface Book 2 sets out to give Apple some nightmares.

Google Pixel Buds Review: Lost in Translation

Google Pixel Buds Review: Lost in Translation

The Pixel 2 may not have a headphone jack, but the Google Pixel Buds promise to make you forget all about your legacy port. Taking on Apple's best-selling AirPods, the $159 headphones not only promise hands-free calls and music, but to bring the power of the Google Assistant to your ear, and translate conversations in foreign languages. Sadly, though, the Pixel Buds aren't the AirPods-killers we were hoping for.

WyzeCam Review: the best security camera $20 can buy

WyzeCam Review: the best security camera $20 can buy

Security cameras are known for being pricey, and that's why Wyze is so unusual. Forget spending $100+ for a name-brand home security camera or $50+ for a generic brand. Wyze is a small cube-shaped camera that costs $19.99, making it one of -- if not the most -- affordable home security cameras on the market. What kind of compromises were made to hit such a low price point? Surprisingly few.
