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 ...

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 ...

Audioengine enjoys a strong reputation for high-quality speakers at prices that won’t make you cry. The HD3 desktop speakers retail at $ 400, which places them at the upper end of Audioengine’s desktop line of powered boxes, but below the top-end HD5 speakers. I held high expectations for the HD3s. As I unpacked them, I ...
