Pubblicato il

With support for millions of colors and lots of animated scenes, the Nanoleaf Lines can nail whatever vibe you crave. They are at their most mesmerizing in a dark room cycling through colors, but they are quite versatile. I use the daylight effect to brighten my office during the day and ward off the dark […]

You Should Buy the New Instant Pot. Just Ignore Its App

Pubblicato il

The Instant Pot I brought to my mother-in-law’s house saved Thanksgiving. This wasn’t on purpose. I’d brought it up to her place to test it for this review, but when her oven died on Thanksgiving Eve, I got creative, whipping up Mark Bittman’s make-ahead gravy in the Instant Pot using its sauté function. I also […]

That might include Sony’s latest Pulse 3D Wireless Headset. These headphones are the default for PS5 owners, but I’m here to tell you to expand your horizons—you don’t […]

The Serial 1 Is a Ho-Hum Harley Ebike

Pubblicato il

Harley-Davidson—that model of red, white, and blue swagger that fits somewhere between baseball and apple pie in the American pantheon of icons—started out by attaching motors to bicycles in 1903. Their first model was the Serial Model One. So when it spun off a new brand dedicated to ebikes, what else could that bike be […]

DJI’s Action 2 Camera Adds Magnets—and Fresh Flaws

Pubblicato il

Drone maker DJI is no stranger to great and small cameras and lenses. The company’s drones capture some of the best aerial footage around, which is why DJI’s first stab at an action cam—the Osmo Action—was a hit. It was more or less a GoPro clone, but it added a full-color front screen, a feature […]

Speak in (Many) Tongues With This Pocket Translator

Pubblicato il

As we begin to cautiously flirt with the idea of traveling once again—at least in regions where Covid-19 cases aren’t on the rise—a young man’s fancy turns to thoughts of visiting foreign lands where he doesn’t speak a lick of the native tongue. My recent review of the Ambassador Interpreter revealed one option for getting […]

Oura’s Gen3 Launch is Marred by an Unhealthy Business Model

Pubblicato il

I never would’ve guessed that the rollout of Oura’s third-generation ring would go poorly. The Finnish health-tracking ring debuted in 2015 to high praise (some of which I gave). It’s simple, accurate, stylish, and the near-universal choice for businesses and organizations to spot early warning signs of Covid. Everyone (well, everyone who cares about these […]

The Beats Fit Pro Are Apple’s Best Earbuds Ever

Pubblicato il

This is where Beats steps away from its parent company: It opens up the ecosystem a bit for people who use different hardware or who like a bit more customizability to their style. Beats has a great Android app for one-touch pairing and customized controls, and it includes a fit test. Unlike other Apple buds, […]

Kia’s EV6 Is One Fine Tech-Boosted Ride

Pubblicato il

There’s more. Again, like the Ioniq 5, the EV6 has V2L, or “vehicle to load.” It basically turns the EV6’s battery into a giant personal power plant on wheels. You can plug any standard household appliance—yes, including TVs or microwaves—into the car, and they’ll run just like they would at home. It makes the sporty-looking […]

The Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Is the Comeback King

Pubblicato il

Referencing one of the 20th century’s most infamous catastrophes when christening a modish piece of technology seems a remarkably bold decision even now. Back in 2007, when Bowers & Wilkins unveiled its new “Zeppelin” iPod dock (remember those? They seem about as quaint a concept as airships themselves these days, but 15 years ago they […]
