  • The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Is A Nearly Perfect Mini Tablet

    The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Is A Nearly Perfect Mini Tablet

    Like the great zeppelins of old, nobody expected the Galaxy Note to fly. The phones were too big, the embedded stylus too silly. I reminded us all of the bad old days when PIMs were black and white and bulky. But Samsung persevered and Apple followed suit and now we enter the era of the phablet, a time of strange portents and weird UIs. A time where a phone that makes all other phones seem… Read More

    Gaming Company Razer Is Now Valued At $1B+

    Razer, the San Diego-based high-end gaming tech company, is on a roll. In the wake of the latest models of its thin Blade gaming laptops, a partnership with Tencent in China, and preparing for the sale of a new wearable, it has recently closed a round of funding with Intel on at least a $1 billion valuation.

  • Bag Week: Hex Onyx Origin Laptop Bag

    Bag Week: Hex Onyx Origin Laptop Bag

    You might say, “It’s a bag! How much can someone say about a single bag?” A lot, it turns out, because the Hex Onyx Origin isn’t just any bag. As a staunch backpack fan (not shoulder bags or briefcases), this is the only backpack I’ve ever worn that made me feel like a grownup. It comes in a black canvas color with leather trim, and has a structured design so… Read More

    The $99 Nexus Player Is Google’s Answer To The Apple TV

    Remember Google TV? It’s gone. Now there is Android TV and it promises to do everything Google TV couldn’t including play games for just $99. Google partnered with Asus for the first device. Called, Nexus Player, the set top box is reminiscent of the Fire TV and runs Android TV with the help of a quad-core 1.8GHz Intel Atom processor with PowerVR Series 6 graphics, 1GB of RAM and… Read More

    Google Debuts The HTC-Made Nexus 9 Android Tablet

    Google has a new Nexus tablet, and it’s a 9-inch slate, built by HTC — a company that’s an unusual choice, given the ample field of OEMs available. The Taiwanese gadget-maker got out of the tablet game a few years ago, but now it’s back with a 9-inch Nexus special that looks kind of like an oversized Nexus 5, albeit with an brushed-metal aluminum rim in place of the… Read More

    Google’s Nexus 6 Is A ‘Big’ Change For The Nexus Line, Ships In November

    Google has done what many predicted it would, and ventured into phablet territory with the Nexus 6, its latest Android reference smartphone. The Motorola-made gadget has a 5.9-inch display, and 1440×2560 resolution, resulting in what should be an eye-popping 496 ppi pixel density. As Darrell has previously said, that seems like it could make the gadget fairly unwieldy, but Google… Read More

    Bag Week: Herschel Heritage BackPack Plus

    Chances are, you’ve seen someone wearing a Herschel backpack. They have signature leather elements including zipper pulls and straps, depending on the series, and they always bear the company’s old-timey logo in a small white patch somewhere you can reasonably expect it to get seen. The Heritage backpack is one of the company’s standards, as it likes to work with a limited… Read More
