The Google Pixel review: Notes from a smaller phone

The best small Android phone you can buy.

It’s been a fun few days, what with unboxing the Pixel and trying to get to know it as quickly as possible.

And in that time, I’ve realized a few important things about the device, from its feel in the hand (great!) to the Assistant (WIP!) and everything in between. Andrew and Alex have each put their thoughts down on paper already, but since I’m the only one  [Read More…]

UNITEK Aluminium wireless Bluetooth speaker: Big sound in a little package (review)

I’m sitting on a flight and heading on vacation to Maui for a week. While packing for my trip it was hard to contain myself from bringing along every single device along to entertain myself.

Google Pixel XL review: A U.S. perspective

This is the best phone ever to wear the Google brand.

Lenovo Yoga Book review: The future is (almost) here

It’s easy to say that using the Lenovo Yoga Book feels like living in the future, but with its inclusion of (literal) pen-and-ink technology and an all-touch keyboard reminiscent of the first Microsoft Surface, it’s just as accurate to call it a leap into the past.
