Review: Samsung Chromebook Pro

Over the last couple of years, Chromebooks have quietly infiltrated the computer market. Google’s affordable “just a browser” devices are the best-selling computers in schools, and they’re percolating around boardrooms and cubicles.

Review: 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S

Of the 14 corners of Valencia’s Circuit Ricardo Tormo, the scariest is the hard left-hander at the end of the half-mile straightaway. That’s because by the time you hit it, you’ve had the space to accumulate a triple-digit velocity, and for me, the time to worry about how to drop enough speed and ...

Review: LG Watch Style and Sport

I’ve worn almost every smartwatch worth the name, and I’m still waiting for that life-changing, never-going-back moment that leaves me incapable of imagining life without one. Instead, I’ve found that smartwatches excel at little things: Checking the weather, remembering where I’m supposed to be, switching songs on Spotify. The best I can say ...

Review: Lenovo Flex 4

I was drawn to the Lenovo Flex 4 after seeing it in a showroom. On a floor full of laptops with mushy Chiclets for keys, the Flex 4 was a callback to the glory days of the IBM ThinkPad. The keyboard had full-size keys with actual travel! They even audibly ...

Review: Dyson Supersonic

Hair dryers are the least glamorous part of looking glamorous. They’re cumbersome, their cords tangle easily, and they devour precious drawer space. The cheap $ 20 ones barely get the job done, while $ 200 “professional” models only provide marginal improvements on the same old technology. recommends 2017 Dyson Supersonic 8/10 ...

In a world full of fake news, spin, obfuscation, and brazen lies, where facts are mutable and doubt seeps into the crevices of life like rainwater, only one thing is certain: the earphone industry is a racket. A very big racket. recommends 2017 KZ-ATE Hi-Fi Earphones 9/10 Wired Hi-fi sound ...

Review: Thalia Capo 200

If you’re a guitarist, you’ve probably heard your instrument go slightly out of tune every time you clamp a capo onto the fretboard. A capo is the simple spring-loaded mechanism that raises the pitch of a guitar by pushing down on the strings wherever you place it on the neck. ...

Review: Yuneec Breeze 4K

The camera market has long been segmented into three basic categories: Cameras for professionals, models for the so-called “serious hobbyists,” and models for the newcomer. From DSLRs to action cams and point-and-shoots, most cameras are squarely aimed at one of these three markets. The market for aerial photography (aka drones ...

Review: LifePrint

The LifePrint printer rethinks the tired idea of a handheld device that spits out overpriced, undersized hard copies with an interesting concept: DIY Augmented Reality, delivered via a tiny photo print. LifePrint’s $ 130, pocket-sized printer pairs via Bluetooth to print any image off your phone, efficiently depositing it onto sticker-backed 2- by 3-inch ...

Review: Midwest Supplies ‘Beer. Simply Beer.’ Brewing Kit

I firmly believe that the kitchen is an incredible source of knowledge, and that you can’t truly understand something you love until you try making it yourself. If you love beer, these truisms yield a glorious thing. Homebrewing is something of a national passion, but I’ve never delved into it, mostly because there’s so much great ...
