Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge review: Next-level low-light photography and so much more

We can't decide if the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are incredibly easy or incredibly hard to review. They get so many things right that it's easy to sing their praises, but because they're so good and polished, lacking the kinds of gimmicks that used to define Samsung phones, they almost make for a boring review (after all, problems and conflict are the root of all storytelling). We'll do our best to keep things interesting, despite the lack of drama in these two near-perfect flagships.Read More

GoTenna review: Text and share your location anywhere, without a signal

Whether it be in the wilderness or at a crowded event, there is nothing more frustrating for many people than the dreaded no signal icon or "message not sent" being displayed on their smartphone display. GoTenna is a pen-sized Bluetooth device that is designed to keep your group connected to each other, even when there's no network around. We tried out a pair deep in the southern Rocky Mountains to see how they performed.Read More

Review: Chain Monkey takes the guesswork out of motorcycle chain adjustment

It's dirty work, adjusting motorcycle chains. At least, it is on my bike, which gets cleaned exactly as often as it rains. There's also a bit of back and forth trying to get the right amount of chain slack - and that's where this jigger helps. Chain Monkey clamps onto your chain and gives you the correct chain tension first time and every time. Simple, effective and a good idea.Read More

Review: Sleek Z4 Aurora projector shines bright in some areas, not so much in others

There was a time when watching projection movies and TV meant a huge console in the middle of the living room floor with one red, one blue and one green light throwing pale images onto a nearby screen. Like most tech since then, projectors have gotten smaller and better, rendering super sharp images even from long distances. The Z4 Aurora continues the evolution of the home projector by building in Wi-Fi capability, a music player, gesture control, outstanding speakers and 3D viewing. Some of these features work well, but others clearly need improving, as our tests showed.Read More

Review: Reprieve Bicycle Saddle's claims actually hold some air

Although a lot of people may describe conventional bike seats as being "a pain in the butt," the fact is that they're more often a pain in the crotch – in the perineum, to be precise. That's why Texas-based 3 West Design first announced its air bladder-equipped Reprieve Bicycle Saddle in 2014. Two years and one successful Kickstarter campaign later, the first production units are now ready to go. We recently got the chance to try one out, to see how much it really takes the pressure off.Read More
