Hands on with Marvel’s Spider-Man for PlayStation 4

Spider-Man looks and feels beautiful to play, but there are a few eyebrow-raising gameplay elements.

At Sony’s E3 2018 event, they finally showed off in-depth gameplay for Insomniac’s Spider-Man… or, as in-depth as they thought they should, I suppose. Just from what was on screen, I was disappointed in the lack of detail the publisher went through in showing off the game. None of what they showed was especially dramatic from what we had already known, and  [Read More…]

MrMobile goes hands on with the OnePlus 6!

“From where I’m sitting, this is the last time the company can hike its prices without a significant upgrade in design or camera performance.”

That’s how I closed out my review of the last OnePlus smartphone, the OnePlus 5T released in November. Well, wouldn’t ya know it: the OnePlus 6 (announced moments ago) features an upgraded design, better camera specs, and –yes– a price hike to go with ’em. The former king of value in the smartphone  [Read More…]

Google has a mess on its hands with internal discrimination

Wired recently interviewed some Google employees following the James Damore situation, and their insight is eye-opening.

Last August, Google was placed under the spotlight for firing James Damore after he shared his controversial memorandum to Google’s internal networks. The memo talked about the wage gap between men and women in the engineering field, and Damore tried to explain that this gap existed due to biological difference between males and females.

Earlier this year, Damore issued a class  [Read More…]

Hold the ultimate VPN experience in your hands with VPN Unlimited

If you’ve read anything regarding online privacy, you’ll understand that most coffeeshop and small store Wi-Fi connections are open and therefore, insecure. It is often on many of these same networks that users find their personal information stolen and retrieved by dishonest individuals who are simply waiting to use your credit card, debit card, address, […]

Samsung has new Gear to keep you Fit: MrMobile hands on

Samsung’s Gear Sport, Gear Fit2 Pro, and Icon X are all variations of designs we’ve seen before. The Gear Sport is an evolution of the Gear S3 Frontier, Samsung’s outdoor smartwatch I reviewed last year. I didn’t get as close a look at the Gear Fit2 or the Icon X earbuds – but maybe that’s just as well, given how much the newer models improve upon their forebears. With MIL-STD 810G durability and 5ATM water resistance the Gear Sport  [Read More…]

Hands on with a potentially game-changing budget phone – Metro’s ZTE Blade Z Max

Going into my first hands-on with a major phone company, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Was it gonna be a room full of people in a formal setting? Was there going to be food? Was it a private hands on, or would there be other bloggers there? Fortunately, it turned out to be […]

Hands on with Nokia’s new Android phones: the 3, 5, and 6

The rebirth of another storied smartphone brand begins. This time it’s Nokia.

Nokia is still a company that is focusing on their core business: networking technology. They’re quite good at it; there’s a good chance you’re using Nokia tech on a regular basis through your cellular network, even if it’s not a Nokia. But the Nokia brand? That’s all about smartphones. And while Nokia knew that, they also sold their phone business to Microsoft in 2015 (which  [Read More…]
