The go-anywhere laptop just got better

The go-anywhere laptop just got better

I liked Apple’s 2018 MacBook Air refresh. It felt like a decent update to the classic, beloved Air design, as well as the replacement for the now-dead 12-inch MacBook I was waiting for. Of course, it eventually turned out that Apple’s third effort to redesign the unreliable Butterfly keyboard mechanism didn’t work out like the […]

It looks like a new iPad could still be just around the corner.

Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip is an experiment worth buying if you really want a foldable smartphone

My main takeaway from the roughly 72 hours I spent with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip is that it’s by far the best foldable smartphone available, but in some ways, it still feels like an experiment. If you’re sold on the concept of a foldable screen and the device’s steep cost isn’t a concern, the Galaxy […]

EA says PS5 and Xbox Series X ‘will blow people’s minds’

Often, as new console releases approach, even third-party developers attempt to build-up hype surrounding next-gen systems. In the latest of what is likely set to be a series of ‘hawt takes’ from various developers over the next few months, during the company’s recent earnings call, EA’s CFO Blake Jorgensen called the PlayStation 5 (PS5) and […]

Apple TV+’s Mythic Quest is an admirable attempt to mock video game culture

Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet, Apple TV+’s latest original TV series, feels like a modern take on 2006’s now extremely dated video game tester, stoner comedy Grandma’s Boy, combined with the social commentary and wit of HBO’s Silicon Valley. This is great, given that the video game industry is in dire need of a TV show […]

Apple TV+ app is coming to 2018 and newer LG TVs

While Apple’s TV+ app and AirPlay 2 have been available on select Samsung TVs for a few months now, it looks like the app is making its way to more televisions. Along with its reveal of new 8K OLED TVs, LG confirmed that Apple’s streaming platform app is coming to its 2018 and 2019 TVs, […]

Toronto-based Interaxon is back with the sleeker, more comfortable Muse S

Following up last year’s Muse 2 is the Muse S, a brain-sensing headband made of soft fabric that allows users to work on their meditation skills both in the daytime and before bed. Toronto-based Interaxon says that this allows the device to promote healthy pre-sleep habits for more restorative rest. The Muse S’s flexible form […]
