It’s Time to Get an SSD for your Laptop (Video)

I’ve known for a long time that SSDs (Solid State Drives) are better than traditional HDDs (Hard Disk Drives) in almost every way. They’re faster, lighter, consume less battery, and are resistant to damage caused by too much movement. The only thing that’s been keeping them out of computers is price; they use to be




8 Ways To Go As Wireless As Possible

One of my missions in tech is to go as wireless as possible, because I really, really hate wires. They are unsightly, tangle, snag, get in the way, break, and are harmful to the environment if not properly discarded. So, I’ve compiled a list of ways you can start eliminating wired electronics by using their




Fitbit Flex review

The Fitbit Flex is the first wearable fitness device I’ve worn, and it probably won’t be the last. Putting measurable numbers to everything we do is big business these days, and Fitbit has been synonymous with wearable fitness tech since 2007. At $99, the Flex is Fitbit’s basic wristband that tracks activity as well as




Sony MDR-7506 Over-Ear Heaphone Review – Still Melting Faces Since 1991

Like: Incredible sound for sub $100. Comfortable. Reliable. Classic design. Dislike: Heavy cable. Material covering cups fray, but that’s purely cosmetic. Light on bass on some tracks. Bottom Line: Excellent sub $100 headphones, would even be great at the $200 range. Better for home listening, cable might be too heavy for walking around, definitely not




HAL Wants You To Ditch The Remote And Smarten Up Your TV

The original HAL 9000‘s problems from 2001: Space Odyssey were definitely bugs, not features. Thankfully, the guys at Why Remote reinvented our favorite sentient AI psychopath, HAL, to control your television with hand gestures and voice commands, encouraging you to shun your remote. Apart from letting you change channels and adjust volumes with Jedi-style hand waves,




Hands on with LG’s curved G Flex Smartphone at CES 2014

LG’s new G Flex is one of the first smartphones to rock a curved screen, beating the ever-so-eager Samsung to the punch. It should be interesting to compare it with Samsung’s Galaxy Round, which will also have a curved screen, but with horizontal curvature (rather than vertical on the G Flex). This could be the




Galaxy Gear – *UPDATE*

*As predicted, and as of 11/15/13, Samsung has updated its Galaxy Gear to display notifications for all apps, including Facebook and Gmail, whereas upon release, it only displayed notifications for Samsung apps. Y’know, we shouldn’t judge the first few iterations of tomorrow’s technology too harshly, unless it’s utterly useless, like the Galaxy Gear. If its




iPad Air Review – Worth The Upgrade?

Who thought they would call it the Air? In retrospect, of course they added the wildly popular Macbook Air’s nomenclature to the iPad. The iPad Air is indeed a slimmer, lighter version of the iconic iPad design. Not only that, its A7 chip is twice as powerful as the iPad 4’s A6X chip, which was




Five iPhone Things You’ll Miss If You Switch Over To Android

iOS6′s tired, old staleness was one of the main reasons I switched over to Android. Now, a green iPhone 5c test device running iOS7 is making me seriously consider going back to iPhone. When I returned to my trusty Nexus 4, there were five major aspects that I missed dearly from using iOS7 on an




5 Ways the Leap Motion Controller Is Nothing Like The Video

  Last December, I stumbled on a YouTube video (above) about the Leap Motion Controller. It looked fantastic, and its $70 price tag (at the time, $80 now) made it an obvious purchase for the early adopter. How could I not pre-order it? After a few delayed release dates, I finally received it in late
