  • 2016 Land Rover LR4 Review

    In our remix-obsessed culture, it's reassuring to come across something that's managed to endure the ebb and flow of fashion, and stay true to the qualities that have made it such an appealing part of the cultural landscape for so many years.

    When a game gets a closed beta just a month before it's ready to be released, people often wonder just how much can be changed in that time. Such is the case with Tom Clancy's The Division.

  • Hitman Absolution is getting the Xbox One treatment

    One thing that's always made me enjoy playing games on a PC is the fact that there are very few games that I can't go back and play whenever I want, on the same machine I play new titles on. With consoles, the ability to play older games on new hardware has been spotty, at best. Microsoft has been doing … Continue reading
  • Adobe Photoshop Sketch Review with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil

    Over the past week and a half I've been using the app Adobe Photoshop Sketch for iOS with the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. It's not what I expected. I expected it to be an experience in which the stylus (the Apple Pencil) would be speedy and the app would have simple basics. As it turned out, the Apple Pencil … Continue reading

    The Internet of Things might seem pretty ubiquitous at this point, but there are still headaches in getting things connected.

Particle - … Continue reading

  • Speck MightyPack Plus Review: Mighty indeed

    I'm the kind of guy that's much happier carrying around a backpack, rather than a typical laptop bag. Not only do I find them more comfortable, they typically have more storage space.

  • Fallout 4 ramen is real, for some reason

    Since Fallout 4 was announced, we've seen some pretty strange tie-in products. The first was Fallout Shelter, a very unexpected iOS game.

However, the weirdest tie-in was the Fallout Beer. However, … Continue reading

  • Skype and Paul McCartney designed 10 new Valentine’s emojis

It's one of those things where you … Continue reading
  • Netflix still can’t stop VPN users, despite help from Paypal

    It has been nearly a month since Netflix told the world at large that they were coming for their content. Or rather, that they would be stopping you from accessing content that wasn't available within your region. So what has really happened, during this time?
