Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano – The Classic ThinkPad, Thinner, Stronger, and More Evolved

When I first switched to the MacBook Pro – my first ever Mac – way back at the very beginning of the Intel transition, it caused me to begin to think differently about how we describe computers, and even evaluate them. I learned very quickly that things like processor speed, RAM, and other raw specs become arbitrary at some point – and what really, truly matters is the experience that using a device provides. As such, when presented with the opportunity to review Lenovo’s thinnest and lightest generation of...

On The Recently Discovered iOS “Schou” Networking Bug

Earlier this week, news broke of a strange networking issue that can permanently disable all WiFi activity on iOS devices. It’s currently known to affect iOS 14 only, and can cause quite a mess. The news was originally revealed by reverse engineer Carl Schou (via BleepingComputer (story sourced via MacTrast), and while there was originally very little information revealed about the issue or how it functions, we decided to put our research hats on and see what we could discover. On iOS 14, the problem can be quickly fixed by...

Review: Nebula Capsule Max – Bigger and Brighter, But With Some Big Tradeoffs

A while back, we took a close look at Anker’s popular Capsule – a highly portable projector in a very small package aiming to transform the pocket projector from a strict business tool into a serious multimedia device – and overall, we were quite pleased. Today, we will be taking a look at a highly updated, brighter, and more powerful model released as a successor — the Nebula Capsule Max! The Max takes the capsule in a slightly different direction with a significantly larger form factor, bigger and louder...

Review: Tovala Steam Oven – The Oven That Makes Home Cooking Easy

Apple’s Silicon Strategy: How Apple’s Custom Chips May Change Their Product Lineup

Naturally, following Apple’s WWDC announcements on June 22nd, there has been a great deal of chatter and discussion regarding the future of the Mac now that Apple is transitioning to using it’s own custom designed chips. And naturally, we may have heard a thing or two from sources who have served us well in the past (including one of the sources that gave us great information on Apple’s AirPower plans). That being said: I have an immense dislike for rumors on an existential level. The level to which rumors...

Review: Anker Nebula Capsule – A Pint-Sized Pocket Projector That Packs a Punch!

Portable, nano, or pico projectors have been a rising trend in consumer tech goods over the recent years, and they can be useful in all types of situations – sharing a business PowerPoint on the fly, watching a movie in a remote location where your normal streaming box or TV can’t follow, and so forth. However, the main thing that has kept me from jumping on board is that they tend to lack versatility for streaming your personal media or accessing your favorite streaming services. Anker, makers of the...

What Really Happened to Apple’s AirPower?

For those who eagerly watched the 2017 iPhone X release event last September 12, there is somewhat of an elephant in the room that Apple has so far refused to address: the AirPower wireless charging mat that it unveiled at the event with a promise of a 2018 release date. Apple’s lack of any mention of the device since then has caused a great deal of curiosity and speculation among pundits and notable industry commentators, leaving many to wonder what happened, or whether the device will appear at all...
