Pixel 3a Complete Walkthrough: Pixel Camera for Half the Price!

In a surprising move, Google has released a cheaper version of the Pixel 3 and 3 XL–okay so it was leaked everywhere and not a surprise at all, but still, it is an interesting move. I already did a day in the life video where I put its camera up against some other phones and checked to see how long it would take to kill the battery during normal use. Feel free to check that out here. In this video, however, let’s do a more detailed dive about everything the Pixel 3a is and do a complete walkthrough. First, check …

Touchscreen on Mac

How to Give Any Laptop a Touchscreen (Video)

I like touchscreens on laptops. So much so that I have caught myself, after a long time with such a laptop, tapping at the screen of another, non-touchscreen, variety in vain. Then quickly remembering that the one I’m using doesn’t have a touchscreen, laughing at myself, and checking to see if anyone else saw me just poke at my Macbook screen. It’s not just mac either, there are plenty of other laptops like Chromebooks and Windows computers that don’t have a touch screen. But what if you could change that? A product called the Neonode Airbar aims to quickly solve that …

The Coolest Looking Razor You Can Buy (Video)

I think I look like I’m twelve when I shame of my beard entirely, so generally, I like to keep at least a little stubble going on here. If I let it grow out on the other hand, it’s oddly a red beard thanks to a great grandmother or someone with in my family being a redhead and frankly it just looks quite ridiculous. Now, all of that means, that I need to keep this in check and that means I need have a decent razor. My last one finally died and while looking for a new one, I found the coolest …

Is Google Home Better Than The Amazon Echo? (Google Home Review)

The new Google Home is Google’s answer to Amazon’s Echo, the voice-activated bluetooth speaker and home automation assistant. Before going into a comparison though, let’s discuss the Google Home itself. OK, so the Google Home and air freshner-looks aside, it does look like it belongs in your home. It’s a lot smaller than say, the Echo, and just has a look that will probably fit well with most of your other appliances. The bottom grill that covers the speakers is interchangeable as well with a few different color options, all of which aren’t on sale at the moment, but should come …

Nexus 5X Review

Review: Nexus 5X (Video)

Google usually does one of two things when they release a Nexus. They either try and showcase what Android can do with the latest and greatest specs or they create a budget friendly device with great specs to help get Android in the hands of as many people as humanely possible. This year, oddly enough, Google did both. Google announced two Nexus handsets this year, the top of the line Nexus 6P with its metal body, octacore processor, and 2.5k display and the slightly smaller plastic yet still impressive Nexus 5X with a $120 lower price tag. If you’re looking …

The Best Weather App …That’s Not an App

Huddled inside a makeshift tent with thirty or so people (who, unlike myself, are just coming in from riding bicycles for 45 miles in the icy rain dreading the next 30 miles they still had to go), one’s words tend to be heard, whether you intend them to be or not. In this instance, a particular phrase catches everyone nearby like a slap to an already burning, wet face. I tell my mom standing next to me, “Don’t worry, the rain is stopping in one minute.” Ears perk, people stop shivering for a moment and turn slowly towards me. A reply …

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review (Video)

The Galaxy Note 4 just came out last week and now that I’ve had enough time to put it through its paces, figured a review was in order. Check it out and let me know what you guys think in the comments below: Samsung’s latest flagship in its Galaxy Note lineup is definitely a successor. Or maybe it’s a usurper? It adds to the Galaxy Note 3 in a lot of ways, but thanks to it’s new metal siding, it feels like its a bigger leap than it actually is (and makes the Galaxy Note 3 look a little worse than …

HTC One M8 vs Samsung Galaxy S5 (Video)

Looking at these two devices on a spec sheet is a bit like seeing double. Same chipset with a very similar processor speed, same GPU, same screen resolution with a similar screen size, same microSD expandability, similar battery capacities etc. So one can understand why it’s a big question as to which one you should get between these two. Thankfully though, soon as you have them in your hand, differences start to show themselves. These two manufacturers have very different approaches to what they think a flagship phone should look like, feel like, and run like. Let’s explore some of those …

Samsung Galaxy S5 Review (Video)

Regardless of this or any other review, for the most part, Samsung will sell a lot of the Galaxy S5’s (and, indeed, already have). With the previous Galaxy S4 and even the Galaxy Note 3 device, Samsung has made themselves pretty comfortable in the world of Android manufacturers claiming the number one spot in fact. Because of this, it’s easy to hear people calling other Android devices “Galaxy devices” and when told it’s an Android device their eyes simply glaze over “What’s an Android?” (It might be because of this that I’m noticing “Powered by Android at the bottom of …

HTC One M8 Review

HTC One M8 Review (Video)

In an effort to stand out last year, HTC built one of the few all metal bodies for their flagship Android device; the HTC One. Even though it got a decent amount of praise across the internet, its sales numbers didn’t really impress anyone. 6.4 million units sold in 2013 to be precise, which may not sound like a small amount, but comparing that to the 43.3 million Galaxy S4’s sold by Samsung in a similar timeframe, well, it sounds a lot worse. This year HTC is on a mission to try and gain back (or at least stem) some …

Blackberry Z10 Review: An Upgrade or Downgrade?

I try and be as unbiased as I can whenever a new device comes out. Be it iOS, Android, or even Windows Phone. So when RIM announced the new Blackberry Z10, I was optimistic, “Maybe this will get Blackberry back on the map.” If we’re honest though, that’s like saying, “Maybe this year, Jacksonville will win the Super Bowl.” I mean, it’s possible, but very, very unlikely. Either way, let’s take a look at this new Blackberry and see if it can, at least, win some people over. Pros: Blackberry Hub conveniently puts all your messaging, email, social interactions, phone calls, …

Facebook Home Review

Before we get to judging Facebook’s new Home app that essentially takes over your Android device’s homescreen with Facebook goodies (and thanks to some developers, for better or for worse, it’s available on most Android devices instead of the select few available at the app’s launch), it’s probably best we walk you through the app it self and show you what it can (and can’t) do. Pros: Replaces your background with a stream of large photos from your Facebook friends status updates. Easy to like things on Facebook by double tapping an update. Easy to comment on Facebook updates by …

Nike Fuelband Review and Overanalysis (Video)

While we wait for an Android app for the Nike fuel band to come out soon, I decided I’d go grab one and see what all the fuss was about. So here’s a quick video of my thoughts on the fuel band and how it works. Enjoy.

Nexus 7 Review (Video)

Google’s first tablet was announced back on the 27th of June and now it is finally arriving in the hands of consumers. This tablet has already caused quite a buzz on the internet, mainly because of it’s super competitive price point, but can it live up to the hype?
