OLEDs may have the deep blacks everyone seems to crave, but they draw A LOT more power than standard LCD-type screens. You won’t be raving about battery life if Apple goes that route.

Apple would never do something like Magic Bay... and I don’t really blame them. I don’t want my webcam accidentally lost or left at home or the office... that’s not smart. But I do think the notch sucks. There’s a huge lip at the bottom and I would love to see the FT sensors/Camera shifted up and the screen shifted Read more

I don’t think there is any OLED panel out there that can do 1600 nits. They won’t sacrifice top brightness for better blacks. XDR is a big selling point for the new MBPs. Read more

I think the reviewer has missed the point of these buds. They are designed for people who struggle to hear voices on TV soundtracks. People like me. My wife always complained that I have the TV volume way too loud. With these I get clear, I mean really clear voice AND I hear other sounds that I could never hear from Read more

‘’But the biggest disappointment might be the fact that the left and right earbuds aren’t located in the left and right slots in their charging case, which can be confusing when you take them out and stick them in your ears.’’ Read more

I passed on the Steam Deck because I already had the glasses and wanted the smallest but most powerful device for this use where I didn’t care about the screen size anymore. I was actually looking to find a “screenless” Steam Deck to use with the glasses, but not much exists. When I got wind of the Win 4, it ticked Read more

Here is a size comparison of the Steam Deck, and what looks like a Vita/PSP but actually the more portable GPD Win 4 coming out in a few months with higher spec’d hardware (newer Ryzen+GPU than Steam Deck).
THIS is what I’m waiting for and why I passed on the Steam Deck, as I can order a 32GB+2TB config. There’s

I never understood how much a portable controller would change everything for me. On a whim I picked up a 40 dollar Razer Kishi to use with an old phone of mine and retroarch and xbox cloud gaming. Read more

I really wanted to like the Link Buds but in my ears they were so uncomfortable and actively hurt to keep them in after a while. Read more

I am still not sure why these companies are banking on and pursuing a market that really does not exist? Consumers have clearly shown there is little or no interest in VR beyond a passing “that’s cool” interest level. Read more

I feel so bad for HTC. They keep swinging and missing. This is essentially a Pico 4, but half a year later and at three times the price. Read more

This analysis all looks pretty solid, but I do struggle with the M2 Macbook for a couple of reasons. First is the weight. Some people may think it’s light, but it’s not and that’s due to its aluminum case. It’s also extremely slippery, enough so that I have to put bathtub anti-slip stickers on the case. Silly, but it Read more

Obviously, people with the money for these toys don’t have time to type comments here (LOL), but I love the details on all these; adding them to my “Lottery Wish List” for sure.

Nintendo has made gaming watches it was just like 30 years ago. I always wanted the Zelda one.

My partner has had her AirPods Pro since release, uses them every day, and the battery has held up just fine. I am also unaware of any friends who have had issues with the battery. I do agree that Apple should make it easy to swap out the battery, no reason for them not to do that. Seems like they’re heading in a good Read more

I am trying to decide between the airpod pro 2s and the bose qc 2s. I tried the sony and they were a horrible fit for my ears and I could not tell the difference with noise cancelling on or off. Read more
