The ‘Soft Gold’ OnePlus 5 is a pretty phone, with one big downside

It’s easy to get excited about something that’s a limited-run exclusive.

OnePlus has once again trotted out a limited edition color of its phone, this time going with a “Soft Gold” variant of the OnePlus 5. This fair-skinned version of the OnePlus 5 has all of the exact same specs and features — 6GB of RAM, 64GB storage, etc. — as the “Slate Grey” color, and even has the same price.

Samsung DeX does a pretty good job turning the Galaxy S8 into a desktop

Samsung’s “desktop experience” is not only a curious concept, but it’s quickly becoming something I like to use.

Insta360 Air review: Here, have a weird (pretty good) selfie camera

Finally, a plug and play 360-degree camera.

As much as I love taking photos with my trusty Ricoh Theta, it’s not the easiest thing in the world to use. I have to remember to keep it charged, the Bluetooth connection with my phone can occasionally be a little finicky, and while it’s thin enough to be pocketable it’s also long and needs a protective sleeve to keep the lenses safe. Most other 360-degree cameras are worse, especially  [Read More…]

Psychonauts in VR is a pretty great nostalgia trip

This review is going to be a little biased.

I love Psychonauts. I’ve played through the original more times than I can count, and have a deep appreciation for the world and its characters. If it were possible to camp out behind Double Fine’s offices and watch everyone work on Psychonauts 2, I would do so.
