Finally, the Slick Bluetooth Upgrade My Beloved Shure Earbuds Deserve Finally, the Slick Bluetooth Upgrade My Beloved Shure Earbuds Deserve

Usually, he’s right! But when it comes to in-ear headphones, his suggestions have left me filled with regret and my wallet…

Okay, This Argument for 8K TVs Is Kinda Convincing  Okay, This Argument for 8K TVs Is Kinda Convincing 

I am not on board with 8K. The TVs will be expensive, there’s zero content for them, and they’ll heavily rely on internal processors for upscaling that already struggle to upscale HD content properly to 4K. It seems smarter to work on HDR tech, which makes a more substantial improvement at this time than higher…

Nvidia CEO Trashes AMD's New GPU: 'The Performance Is Lousy' Nvidia CEO Trashes AMD's New GPU: 'The Performance Is Lousy'

Yesterday I spent two hours listening to the CEOs of rival companies talk trash about each other. It reminded me of my parents right after their divorce. Nvidia was shit talking AMD, and AMD politely responded with just enough bite for you to take notice.

A Glimpse at the Glorious Future of Display Tech

LG Display is not LG. LG Display makes displays that go in products from a wide variety of companies—including many LG competitors. And it’s really good at making those displays. Its concepts are a peek at what to expect from TV, laptop, and phone makers in the coming years.

I Was Over 8K TVs Before They Even Happened I Was Over 8K TVs Before They Even Happened

Okay, it’s the first day of CES, which means the TV makers have all announced their TVs, and yes they’re all neat looking, especially the 8K TVs top manufacturers are promising to ship this year. They are legit beautiful—so why am I so underwhelmed?

Lenovo's Cheap Android Tablets Double as Alexa Speakers Lenovo's Cheap Android Tablets Double as Alexa Speakers

The tablet is lazy. At least that’s what Lenovo seems to think. The company believes tablets can be used for more than watching Netflix and playing Solitaire. So today, it’s launching two tablets (both under $300) that double as Alexa devices—complete with docks that double as Bluetooth speakers.

And starting in 2019, Alienware plans to roll out a slew of products created…

Razer’s gotten a little more realistic with its concepts recently. It used to be it would show off things like a three-screen laptop that defied logic. Now it’s showing off concepts that feel like natural progressions of what the company has on the market. Take haptic feedback. Razer already has a headset that vibrates

Y'all Ruined One of Lenovo's Best ThinkPads Y'all Ruined One of Lenovo's Best ThinkPads

Okay you jackasses. We need to fight. Because starting this year the Lenovo Yoga Thinkpad X1—Lenovo’s 360-hinge version of the practically perfect X1 Carbon, is dropping the very light and durable all carbon fiber body and replacing it with heavier and lamer aluminum.

This Cordless Hair Dryer Uses Infrared Light to Banish Wetness This Cordless Hair Dryer Uses Infrared Light to Banish Wetness

Hair dryers have cords. It’s inescapable. If they want to be light enough to hold for 15 minutes at a time but powerful enough to push out all the heat and air necessary to dry hair then they typically need a cord to accomplish this. A battery operated hair dryer isn’t going to do the trick.

Apple's Snuck Its Way Into LG's 2019 Televisions Apple's Snuck Its Way Into LG's 2019 Televisions

Today LG announced its high-end 2019 television sets. Not anything crucial like model names or prices—just that the sets were coming and they’d be nicer than what we already have. Also, we learned that they’d support Apple AirPlay and HomeKit. Yup, Samsung and Vizio aren’t the only TV makers playing nice with Apple…

Okay, you’ve probably heard of ray tracing right? When Nvidia announced its Turing GPU architecture last year, it couldn’t stop talking about ray tracing, which is some very cool technology that allows reflections and shadows in a digitally rendered environment (like a game) to behave as they would in real life.
