HTC 10 vs. Samsung Galaxy S7

The two best smartphones of 2016 (so far) are the HTC 10 and Samsung Galaxy S7 (though we're also lumping the Galaxy S7 edge, not pictured in this comparison, into Samsung's side of that conversation). These phones make for a tough decision, especially when you consider the HTC 10's intangibles that don't necessarily show up in specs sheets or features lists. Nonetheless, let's see how their features and specs line up.Read More


iPad Pro 9.7 review: An iPad Air in everything but name ... and price

Apple is still hell-bent on rebranding the iPad, as stagnant sales indicate that customers aren't drooling over tablets the way they used to. iPad Air sales stalling? Let's make a huge one that's kinda like a Surface! Uh oh, that one isn't setting the world on fire either? Here's a smaller version of that big one!

HTC 10 vs. HTC One M9

America's Apple and Korea's Samsung may be dominating the smartphone market, but with manufacturers like Xiaomi and Huawei unleashing some pretty serious slabs of tech on the world, China is clearly angling for a spot at the top of the pile. Chinese manufacturer Meizu took a big leap toward getting there today with the announcement of their Meizu PRO 6 which, it claims, is the first deca-core smartphone on the planet.Read More

Oasis is lightest and thinnest Kindle yet

If you've ever held a Kindle Paperwhite or Voyage e-reader, you've probably never thought "Boy, I wish this thing could be lighter and thinner." The fact is, both readers are already comfortable to hold and use, and can pack in thousands of books in their slim form factors.
