Meet the Surface Phone

Once just a rumor, now it's real. #Microsoft revealed its new phone named the Surface Duo. It runs on Android and works with Google Apps, so all your favorites are there. This is a pretty unique #smartphone that will come out near the holidays during 2020, which means it's a little early to crank... See more

Pretty Sexy, Right?

#Huawei's latest phone was inspired by the #Porsche and it's very sleek indeed. It's a #smartphone that's sure to get noticed thanks to its posh exterior. Just don't look under the metaphorical hood because there's not much there in terms of software. #sleek #HuaweiMate30 #professional #highend ... See more

Puma's First Smartwatch out in November

#Puma's collaboration with #Fossil brings us this new #smartwatch line called the Puma Sport Connected. The specs aren't impressive, but it's not terrible for a first edition. The watch will probably appeal to those who are into the #retro vibe. #wearables #wearable #smartwatches #collab ... See more

Razer (Sort Of) Ups Its Game with Latest Ultrabook

#Razer added a heavy duty graphics card and lightening quick processor to their #StealthBlade13 ultra-portable laptop which makes it a decent option for gaming. But reviews are mixed with some pointing out that it's expensive for what you get and it heats up quickly. Do you think the upgrades make... See more

Canton Releases New Smart Soundbar

What do you think about #Canton's latest #soundbar? It has some of the usual features that we've come to expect in quality soundbars such as #4K compatibility and #DolbyAtmos sound processing capabilities. What makes it stand out for me are its #smarttech features like the touch screen panel and... See more

The Fixable Fairphone 3

This is a new brand to me and it's nice to see a company moving towards fixable gadgets rather than an pushing out an array of disposables. Plus, it's at least partially made with ethical sources. The meaning of that is a little hazy I guess, but at this point, I'll take what I can get.

Nothing Sinks this Watch

The latest #AppleWatch has been making the news for its remarkable waterproof properties.

Comparing LG Stylo 4 to Galaxy Note 9

It seems odd to compare the $1,000 #GalaxyNote9 to the $250 #LGStylo4 simply because they both have a built-in #stylus. Of course the more expensive phone will be speedier and will have a better camera. The #LG doesn't sound bad for the price though. What do you think about LG's #Stylo4 #Samsung ... See more

The two retail titans are set to battle it out in another area. Amazon will soon release an upgraded Fire tablet and Walmart is challenging the company's dominance by releasing three new tablets of their own. Who will come out on top?

Samsung Introduces Budget Fitness Tracker

Samsung's budget fitness tracker is highly affordable at $35 and it does the basics such as monitoring steps and heart rate. However, it doesn't have all the bells and whistles such as GPS tracking and it doesn't have a great screen.

I wouldn't buy the lower priced phone because it doesn't bring anything new to the table.  So, buying the Pro seems to be the only option if you're looking for new features, but I'm not sure the triple-lens justifies the price.
