    Huawei MateBook X Review

    Usually I’d advise against buying a first generation effort, regardless of brand or device.

    True story: last summer, I replaced a fully-loaded 2015 model car with one from 2013.

If, like me and […]

    Huawei Watch 2 Review

    Early last year I checked out the Huawei Watch.
