Asus’s New Zenfone 8 Is Powerful and Small. That’s About It

Pubblicato il

Unremarkable and unmemorable. That’s how I’d describe the Zenfone 8, Asus’ latest Android smartphone. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad phone. It has a high-end processor capable of speedily running any and every app I want, with a compact design that makes it easy to use with one hand. It also doesn’t cost a thousand […]

Microsoft’s 15-Inch Surface Laptop 4 Is a Battery Champion

Pubblicato il

However, compared to other top-end laptops on the market now, the Surface’s performance is pretty middle-of-the-road. Using the older Ryzen 4000 series chips is a strike against it now that the Ryzen 5000 series is out. I’ve been testing several laptops with the latest Ryzen chips, and they are faster across the board and get […]

Seth Rogen’s Record Player Is a Visual (and Aural) Treat

Pubblicato il

Downsides? If you frequently switch between 33 revolutions per minute and 45 rpm, then the T1 BT might be frustrating. Unlike most turntables, there’s no simple switch that toggles between speeds. Instead, you need to remove the glass platter, hook the belt drive to a different part of the motor pulley, and put the platter […]

This alone is well worth the upgrade from the previous version, but the updates don’t stop there. The Advanced Pilot Assistance System (APAS) now uses a wider field of view to detect obstacles. This means you can do more automated flying and worry less about what’s around you. Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but I still have […]

Clothing designer Shari Noble met me and my 50-pound ironing setup on the sidewalk in front of her workshop on Seattle’s First Avenue. Noble runs the La Macón label, and she spends a lot of time ironing. Currently she relies on a Black & Decker model she picked up at Goodwill for $10, following the […]

This Smart Grill Makes Cooking With Charcoal Easier Than Ever

Pubblicato il

There are some hot spots. The left-rear side of the grill was consistently hotter in temperature-gun readings and cooked noticeably faster. That’s not unusual though, every grill I’ve ever tried has hot spots. What’s unusual about the Spark One is how you set up the two-zone system. Two-zone cooking refers to cooking with both direct […]

This Retro Gaming Console Is a Time Machine to the ’80s

Pubblicato il

It’s a good mix of classics and obscure games that ran on a wide array of consoles, including the NES, SNES, the Sega Genesis (Mega Drive), and the Mattel Intellivision. You miss out on the feel and layout of original controllers, but a firmware update now lets you remap buttons in some titles; I haven’t […]

OnePlus Finally Brings Its Phone Cameras up to Speed

Pubblicato il

A new cooling solution called Cool Play improves heat dissipation during gaming; I noticed the 9 Pro stayed comfortably warm after an hour of Oddmar. A very small number of games will also support a feature called Hyper Touch at launch, which improves the syncing time between the display and the processor. OnePlus says this […]

Gazelle’s New Ebike Is One of the Best Rides I’ve Ever Tried

Pubblicato il

Enviolo hubs are also closed systems, so they don’t need too much maintenance (or de-mucking). And because the chain doesn’t have to pop between rungs on a traditional shifting mechanism, the bike sports an ultra-durable carbon belt drive—no more chain grease on your pants! One thing on the bike that puzzled fellow WIRED reviewer Adrienne […]
