I Really Wanted To Love Jaybird’s Wireless Sport Earbuds

I Really Wanted To Love Jaybird’s Wireless Sport Earbuds

All earbuds are, at least in my experience, a trade-off of one kind or another, especially true wireless earbuds with words like “sport” or “active” in their name.

This Dark Phoenix Trailer Is Light Years Better Than The Last One

This Dark Phoenix Trailer Is Light Years Better Than The Last One

I didn’t love the last trailer for Dark Phoenix. It seemed busy for the sake of being busy. Shocking for the sake of being shocking. And it assumed everyone watching already knew what Jean Grey was about to go through when given this sinister new power. For me, it just…
