BluBoo might have something unique in the works (Sponsored)

BluBoo is probably not a name you’ve heard before – it’s a Chinese smartphone manufacturer that has made a bit of a name for itself recently with its attempt to replicate the functionality and screen of the Galaxy S8 at a fraction of the cost. Thus far, it appears to have been successful with the […]

War Robots VR Review: A taste of something ridiculously fun

There are sparks everywhere, and the hail of bullets seems endless. I am probably going to die here.

My mech is spent. Red warning lights are everywhere. Armor gone, rockets reloading, and there are two enemy units a few meters away with crosshairs trained right on me. My partner’s railgun flashes bright yellow, and suddenly bright blue sparks start to fly from the closest unit. The second my rocket reload finishes, my body slams back against the  [Read More…]

Google reportedly cancels ‘muskie’ Pixel XL successor for something bigger

Android feeds my constant yearning for something better

Constant change is music for my soul. Android’s frenetic pace of change fuels that.

Grado’s SR125e, a newer version of the classic.

When I was a teenager, I bought headphones. As many internet-addled 15 year-olds do, I found gaming (Diablo 2) and I found forums, one of which was head-fi.org. It’s still running today — it’s great, you should go! — but back in the early 2000’s it was home to a few  [Read More…]

Google Home: What’s fit for the web isn’t always something that should be read aloud

Reading something is very different from hearing it spoken by a creepy robot.

I’ve been thinking about something Phil showed me a while back. If you have a Google Home, ask it “What do sea otters do to baby seals?” and listen to the reply — but not with kids in the room.

You get a long drawn out answer about how they drown  [Read More…]
