Are Amazon Echo Buttons worth it?

A pair of Amazon Echo Buttons. ($ 20 at Amazon)

If you’ll use ’em, sure.

I have a confession to make. I ordered the Amazon Echo Buttons when they were first announced. And I didn’t take them out of the box for months. Months.

That’s not usually the sort of thing you’d expect to read in a post asking if these things are worth it. I know. So let’s flip things on their head yet again:

Is Fitbit Coach worth the annual subscription?

Tag me in, Coach!

My primary fitness activity is running, but as a guy who played football and rugby in college, and for many years as an adult, I also understand the importance of other types of exercise in order to support a healthy lifestyle.

At this time in my life, it is not a priority to pack up my gear, head to a gym, and dedicate an hour or more of my time to workouts at  [Read More…]

Four tricks worth stealing from Apple Music

“Good artists copy; great artists steal,” is as true for music apps as it is for musical artists.

If a feature is popular on one music app, it doesn’t take long for it to start appearing on other apps. This happens more for big, bold features than it does for the sophisticated little touches that make good apps great, which is a shame because these four features on Apple Music’s Android app might go unnoticed by most,  [Read More…]

Is it worth upgrading to the Galaxy S9?

To Plus or not to Plus.

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8+ phones are nearly identical to one another, but Samsung tried something different this year. Although the S9 and S9+ have a lot of similarities, only the S9 Plus offers 2GB more RAM, a 500mAh larger battery, and dual rear cameras.

One of our forum users is thinking about switching to the regular Galaxy S9 as they want something smaller than their Pixel 2 XL, but the  [Read More…]

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 review: Still worth it in 2018?

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 came out just over a year ago, so why are we reviewing it now? Because it’s still one of the best options on the market due to its speed and beauty. Check out our full review for all of the details.

Is the Honor View 10 still worth buying four months after it was announced?

They say time heals all wounds, but that doesn’t do anything to fix a botched release.

When we reviewed the Honor View 10, we found it to be one of the best affordable flagships for just $ 500 — it held its own against the similarly priced OnePlus 5T, and you could even make the argument that it’s a better value than the more premium Huawei Mate 10 Pro. But that was all the way back in January.

Android Auto was worth waiting three years to buy my car for

I waited three years to buy a CR-V with Android Auto, and it was worth every day.

I used to drive a 2003 Honda Odyssey. During my Disney College Program, she picked up the name Crimson. If anyone needed to move, if anyone needed to haul a crew around, or was taking a road trip, Crimson was our girl. Even at 226,000 miles, I was reluctant to give her up. During three years of car shopping to  [Read More…]

Are Nest Products Worth it?

Yes.

Nest is the Apple of all things that aren’t actually Apple. That is, Nest products look really good, work really well — and probably cost a good bit more than something that doesn’t look as good and work as well.

And that makes sense when you remember that Nest was started by one of the guys who helped make the first iPod.

No, there was ever going to be anything boring about Nest as a company. From  [Read More…]
