    23 Titanic Tech Fails of the 21st Century

    They can’t all be winners. The last 17 years have seen the technology industry crash and rise, and while we’ve got a few mega-success stories to show for it, most of what we’ve seen has ended up on the cutting room floor of history.

    Microsoft Surface Laptop Review

    Microsoft has been killing it lately, but many of their great recent hardware announcements have been geared towards the prosumer. That’s why we were so excited to test the Surface Laptop, which is designed with students in mind. But after spending nearly a week with it, we can testify to the fact that more than […]

    Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ Review: Masterful

    For several years now, Samsung’s been dominating the world of smartphones. Multi-billion dollar marketing campaigns have made the company wildly successful with the general public, but us tech journalists haven’t always been impressed with Samsung’s handsets.

    We’d say that BlackBerry is back, but the truth is they never left. The one-time smartphone king has been on the ropes for years now, but it hasn’t been for lack of trying.

    Everything New Coming to Netflix in May

    Things are about to get political in one of the last socially acceptable ways left. House of Cards is coming back this month, headlining a month filled with superheroes (which Frank and Claire Underwood clearly are).

    LG G6 Review: Insanely Great

    LG has a problem. Despite some great products, it continues to play second fiddle to fellow Korean giant Samsung. This is particularly true with phones. Last year’s G5 wasn’t a bad flagship, but LG’s modular approach made too many compromises in areas that really mattered, like materials and build quality. The result was a gimmicky […]

    The weather is improving, but that hardly means you need to make as drastic of a step as going outside (you can wait until Pokémon Go becomes good again for that). Netflix has a red hot April ahead, with plenty of great movies and binge material to keep us in bed all weekend. Don’t forget to […]

    Nintendo Switch Review

    It’s been about a week since Nintendo’s hybrid handheld/home console, the Switch, shipped out. One of many units came to my doorstep, and since then, I’ve been playing it as much as this job allows me to (so, more than I should, but let’s keep that between us). The pressure was on for Nintendo coming […]

    13 Big Hits and Misses for Nintendo Over the Years

    A lot of us (full disclosure: me included) got a package last weekend or headed to the nearest store that does video games — the Switch, Nintendo’s latest video game console, is here. It’s not in the Guinness Book of World Records (I guess, I didn’t check), but if there was a record for most […]
