What It's Like To Use The iPad Pro As A Laptop

I don’t like laptops. There, I said it. I don’t hate them, but for years I’ve felt they can be improved in many different ways. So when Apple made the iPad Pro, I paid attention. Could this be the product I’d been dreaming of all this time? The short answer: No. The long answer: Also no. But it does have a few surprises.

What It's Like To Use The iPad Pro As A Tablet

Apple’s souped-up iPad Pro is supposed to be a laptop replacement — yet as many have already pointed out, it just isn’t up to the task. So I decided to use the iPad Pro as its namesake suggests: As a huge arse iPad. To my surprise, I liked it.

OnePlus X Review: Great On The Outside, Just OK On The Inside

When OnePlus founder and CEO Carl Pei first showed off the new X in our Manhattan office, I was impressed. Nice glass design, kind of a hybrid iPhone/Xperia look. The textbook definition of “premium.” But it’s really what he said next that got me.

Pebble Time Round Review: Beauty In Simplicity

Smartwatches are subjected to many metaphors: “Smartphones on your wrist.” Mmm, not quite. Maybe in a few more years. “A wearable computer.” Depends on your definition of “computer.” Better keep looking. “An extension of your smartphone.” Now, that’s an idea — one that Pebble has perfected with the Pebble Time Round

Chromecast (2015) Review: Smaller, Faster, And Totally Worth It

Two years ago the Google god in the sky gave unto us a $50 dollar media-streaming dongle, and lo, it was good.

But honestly, that might be enough.

HTC One A9 Review: An iPhone Only In Looks

Let me be blunt. If I lost my iPhone a week ago and needed a new one, I would buy the HTC One A9. It looks great, and upon first glance, works pretty great, too. But I didn’t lose my iPhone, and the A9 is now more expensive than I thought it was.

Leatherman Signal Review: Can This Multitool Survive?

Leatherman’s new Signal multitool is the first to incorporate essential survival items like a fire starter and a whistle alongside traditional tools like a quality knife blade and pliers. Is it a one-tool solution for the wilderness?

The Nexus 5X Review: An Old Favourite With Some New Tricks

I have a confession to make. I love the Nexus 5. Despite its obvious flaws compared to newer and shiner phones (all of which I’ve tried and tested), the Nexus 5 has some intangible quality for me that no other phone has replicated before or since.

Apple CarPlay Review: Siri's A Boring But Useful Travel Pal

The first time I saw CarPlay in action, I couldn’t believe it. You could plug your iPhone into the infotainment system and then get iOS on your dashboard?! It seemed like Apple finally found a way to turn an automobile into a rolling computer like Knight Rider.

LELO LILY 2: A Powerful Vibrator That Also Claims To Be An Aphrodisiac

Swedish adult toy designer LELO has released a $US139.00 juiced-up update to the LILY, its decade-old clitoral vibrator. The new version, called LILY 2, is still small, smooth, and comma-shaped, but now sports a more powerful motor and a surface that’s infused with a purportedly aphrodisiacal fragrance.
