Ringke Wave Case for Galaxy S9+ review: Bold beauty, slick protection

In a market flooded with flat, boring cases, Ringke makes waves and secure style with its dual-layer case.

As the owner of a blue Samsung Galaxy S9+, when I went shopping for a case to protect my shiny new behemoth, I ran into a bit of a problem. Most of the cases available fell into one of two equally undesirable camps: sensible, black bores or bulky, bedazzled beauty school flunk-outs. Adding injury to insult, while there are  [Read More…]

Bring the beauty of nature to your wallpaper this Earth Day

Happy Earth Day!

This oft-ignored holiday deserves better than to be relegated to documentary films and the occasional tree-planting! This is the only life-sustaining planet we’ve got (for now), and it’s our job to love and protect our home planet. There are plenty of charities that you can donate to, such as the World Wildlife Fund and the aptly-named Earth Day Network, and you should consider using Amazon Smile so that every time you buy a new  [Read More…]

The beauty and frustrations of using Android Auto

Android Auto is a fantastic way to get important content from your phone onto your car dash. But it’s not without problems.

Android Auto is a wonderful way to get the important parts of your phone — navigation, music, phone calls, and (limited) notifications — onto your car’s head unit or as a simplified interface on your phone. It’s super cool, and miles ahead of every car manufacturer’s built-in dash interface. Having said that, Android Auto isn’t without its  [Read More…]

OnePlus 5 vs. Honor 9: Beauty and the 8GB Beast

Two very different kinds of affordable flagships enter the fray.

OnePlus and Honor have always been rivals, but this year sees the two brands going head-to-head more directly than ever before. With the OnePlus 5, the company focuses on high-end specs, including a ridiculous 8GB of RAM, alongside a new dual camera setup. And the Honor 9 builds on its predecessor with a few meaningful upgrades of its own, including a beautifully curved glass back panel and  [Read More…]

If you’re buying Beauty and the Beast, make sure to connect Disney Movies Anywhere

Most digital copies are a letdown. Disney’s are not.

We’ve all seen it: buy the movie before it’s out on Blu-ray, and you don’t get any special features, and your copy is stuck in one store forever. It sucks, right? WRONG! Disney has a digital system that makes buying the movie early an actually tempting thing to do, and it all has to do with connecting digital stores and awesome app implementation.

The beauty of having a good camera in every pocket

Cheaper smartphones that don’t suck mean better cameras, and better photos.

While the rest of the team has been playing with phones that border (or safely fall into) the designation of ‘expensive,’ I’ve been erring on the side of budget, switching between four devices that are, to me, just as interesting, as much for what they lack as what they offer.

One of those phones is the ZTE Blade V8 Pro, a phone that barely got any  [Read More…]

Put some island beauty on your desktop with these Moana wallpapers

Get the island vibe with these Moana-themed wallpapers!

Moana came out today in the U.S., and if there’s anything I want to do more than sit around a table filled with stuffed birds and mediocre sides, it’s go to the movies. Moana couldn’t have shown up at a better time, and to celebrate, we’ve got some wallpapers of our new favorite Disney heroine.

Yeah, I wish this movie were cel animation, too.  [Read More…]

Break the spell with these Beauty and the Beast wallpapers

Beauty and the Beast is one of the greatest animated movies of all time (don’t worry, Ariel, you’re still #1 in my heart!). 2016 marks the 25th anniversary if its release, which Disney has celebrated by releasing a special edition on Blu-ray, DVD, and for the first time, digital!
