Review: HP Envy 34 Curved All-in-One (2017)

Pubblicato il

Very few computers make a statement just by sitting on top of your desk. HP’s latest update of the Envy 34 all-in-one is one of them. A major revamp of the previous generation of the Envy 34, this latest iteration rearranges the components by detaching the CPU from the back of the screen and putting […]

Review: Audeze iSine 20

Pubblicato il

The latest release from Audeze, the iSine 20, takes technology typically found only in over-ear headphones and squeezes it into a pair of ultra-portable earbuds. While that’s certainly commendable, people accustomed to regular earphones—which comfortably envelop the ears—must make some compromises. And at $600, there’s no easy buy-in.

Go to CES and throw a rock. It’s better than even-money that the guy who gets hit is wearing headphones. The odds are much higher that the cans attached to this unfortunate noggin are of the “dynamic” variety. Ninety-nine percent of today’s audio headgear—the Skullcandys, EarPods, and Beats Solos—have dynamic drivers stuffed inside them. It’s […]

Let’s be real: Unless you’re one of those kooks who uses a standing desk, you’re probably on your butt all day at work. Never mind all those reports that sitting down will ultimately kill you. I spend more time in my desk chair than I do in my bed, and chances are you do too. […]

The trends that led to food bars—those portable meal substitutes that pack energy and nutrition into a few inches of pressed granola—are something de Tocqueville would have relished: busier lifestyles and the importance of convenience; the blurring of meals and snacks; an emphasis on portion control amid an obesity epidemic; and a shift to urban dwelling, which […]
