Garmin Fenix 2 Watch Review: Jack Of All Trades, Master Of Many

The Fenix 2 is the watch Garmin has made to appeal to active people who might end up doing… well, just about anything outdoors.

Moshi SenseCover Review: Answer Your iPhone Without Opening Its Case

If there’s one thing that can divide iPhone users, it’s the debate over whether to hide their precious handset inside a fancy case. Some prefer the feel of a naked iPhone in their hand, while others don’t trust themselves carrying it around unprotected.


Moto X (2014) Review: Still The Android Phone For Everyone

The original Moto X, which debuted last year, was a different breed of smartphone. Rather than trying to build a beast with the best screen and the most horsepower, Motorola focused on the user experience above all else. The result was a phone that was so intelligent and comfortable to use that it almost didn’t matter that it was out-gunned in a lot of ways. Well, the 2014 model is here. Not only does it retain that same sublime user experience, it comes out guns blazing.


Moto 360 Smartwatch Review: The Best Might Not Be Enough

Early this year when Google first announced Android Wear, it teased us with the Moto 360. It was by far the best-looking smartwatch we’d ever seen. Many months later it’s here at last. It’s the best Android Wear device yet, but with the Apple Watch looming on the horizon, it’s no longer clear if that’s good enough.


Acer Chromebook 13 Review: With Great Power Comes An Iffy Screen

Nvidia’s Tegra K1 is an absolute blast in an Android tablet, and now the Acer Chromebook 13 is slapping it in a laptop body too. The result isn’t perfect, but it’s a promising look at where Chromebooks could go.


Moto 360 Battery Life Test: So Far, Not As Bad As You Heard

Battery life is generally the slowest thing to test on a gadget, and it’s almost always the toughest to get right. There’s just no way to rush it, and there are just so many variables regarding how people use a particular gadget that it’s always one of those “your mileage may vary” type of situations. Last week, some very early reviews of the Moto 360 smartwatch lambasted its weak battery performance. It’s possible they may have jumped the gun.


Tamagotchi 2014 Review: My Pocket Friend Left Me Before I Could Kill Him

Remember Tamagotchis? Of course you do. They taught you about responsibility. They taught you about friendship. But most importantly, they taught you that friends don’t leave friends in rooms filled with their own feces. Now, it’s time to reopen those old, grief-stricken wounds. The Tamagotchi is back — and it is still hungry.

Sphero Ollie: A Devilishly Speedy Toy Controlled By Your Phone

Ollie is the latest phone-controlled toy from the developers behind the Sphero robotic ball. For Ollie, the team actually reduced the toy’s functionality so that it’s basically just a super fast cylinder. It races around on two wheels, spinning, jumping and crashing into stuff like a drunk speed skater.


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Review: An NYC Tale That Needs More NYC

Reboots of cartoon classics are just a fact of life now. Each time they hit theatres, you hope and pray they will do justice to your childhood memories. More often than not, they leave you disappointed. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is sadly no exception, and it doesn’t take advantage of the one thing that could have saved it.
