You may not be old enough to have experienced Google Reader, but the beloved RSS feed reader was the perfect solution for ingesting news without all the noise. Just a bare-bones list of headlines curated by you, the reader.

What could be more useful material than subjects and items that you specify? It made the morning ritual a truly blissful habit.

But, seemingly just when you had the perfect amount of sources carefully categorized, Google announced it was discontinuing the  [Read More…]

Ringke Fusion Case for Samsung Galaxy S9+ review: Latch onto this grippy clear case

Ringke lets you show off every inch of the Galaxy S9+’s graceful figure with a case that’s clear as glass.

The Samsung Galaxy S9+ is a phone that has been refined and resculpted to glassy brilliance, and while we want to keep that fine mirror-finish from scratching or shattering, hiding it away inside a vault of an Otterbox seems like a waste, no matter how vibrant or stylish the case might seem.

There are plenty of clear  [Read More…]

Nokia 3.1 review: A great small budget phone with performance problems

Nokia nails the core hardware and features, but comes up short in specs and performance.

We often talk about “cheap” Android phones in reference to devices like the Moto G6, which typically cost about $ 225. But many people don’t even want to break the $ 200 barrier when they’re looking for a phone, whether it’s because they just broke their flagship device and don’t want to spend $ 800 again, or they simply don’t want to  [Read More…]

Spigen Liquid Crystal Pixel 2 Case review: Clearly a great option

Puns aside, this is one of the best clear cases you can get.

Although the Pixel 2 may not be the most stunning phone ever created, it’s still a pleasing bit of technology to look at. The Just Black, Clearly White, and Kinda Blue colors all come with their own unique style, but if you throw a case on the phone to help keep it protected, these colors completely vanish.

Clear cases are often a favored solution  [Read More…]

Whether you’re sitting on a long flight, writing in your favorite coffee shop, or just trying to drown out noisy neighbors, there’s no better way to block out the rest of the world.

There are plenty of noise-canceling headphones available, but I’ve been using  [Read More…]

For $ 30, you’re not going to find a wearable that offers the same set of features as the Mi Band 3.

Xiaomi entered the wearable market four years ago, emulating a similar strategy as its phone business that saw the brand edge out its Chinese rivals. The key takeaway from the first-gen Mi Band was its affordability: costing just $ 15, it was much cheaper than any other product that offered a similar set of features.
