Polk Command Bar review: Alexa has never sounded this good

The $ 249 Command Bar does a fantastic job integrating Amazon’s virtual assistant.

Amazon and Google offer a range of smart speakers tailored for different use cases, but the main issue with these devices has always been sound quality. The Echo Plus (2nd gen) delivers much better sound over its predecessor, but it still isn’t anywhere close to a budget 2.1 setup.

Is Google Wifi a good solution for a tall home?

Best answer: Yes, Google Wifi can broadcast Wi-Fi signal in all directions including to floors above and below.

The brand’s origin story is interesting as it was designed for one reason and one reason alone: to  [Read More…]

Here’s how good the Galaxy Note 9’s battery life is in the real world

Best answer: Samsung could finally tout a Note with battery life to match its size and capabilities thanks to the Note 9. It can go all day with a good amount of battery to spare, even if you make no attempt to change its behavior in the name of battery life. The only modern Galaxy phone that bests it is the latest and greatest Galaxy S10+, and the improvement isn’t huge.

Solid battery, at a discount:  [Read More…]
