Any phone that takes you from sunrise to sunset without dying is a pretty solid phone in my book. So when I came home from a day of Google Maps navigation, hotel hunting and shooting endless photos (while Instagramming my every meal, natch) I expected my Moto Z3 Play to be mere moments from auto-shutdown. But while its Moto Mod was indeed just ticking over to zero as I walked in the door, the Z3 Play’s onboard  [Read More…]

Sony WF-SP700N review: MrMobile finally tries “truly wireless”

Securifi’s new Almond 3 router kit tries to add every feature imaginable, and comes close

Sometimes all-in-one is perfect. Other times you need to spread out a bit.

Despite how much work happens inside their soft plastic casings, few people look at routers as computers that can complete multiple tasks. These are boxes you plug in, set up once, and forget about until something goes wrong. It’s nice to know you can do that and have your internet behave itself most of the time, but there are a couple of companies  [Read More…]

This was the best Friday since last Friday. Here’s what you need to know for October 28, 2016.

I was on a plane today and saw someone in the waiting area with a Galaxy Note 7.
