Instead, I’ve been pretty much a dedicated mouse user since the mouse first became an option. But Logitech’s MX Ergo wireless trackball has changed all that – and I’m not sure I’ll ever go back. The new trackball has some highlight features including… Read More

Apple TV 4K review roundup: What people are saying about the next-gen Apple TV

Apple TV 4K Review

Apple may still view the Apple TV as nothing more than a hobby, but the company is certainly doing all it can to transform its venerable set-top box into a must-have device. Though previous incarnations of the Apple TV left much to be desired, the forthcoming Apple TV 4K seeks to address at least a few of the complaints users had. From a slightly improved remote to the long-overdue addition of 4K support, it'll be interesting to see if Apple's latest effort will resonate with consumers once it hits store shelves tomorrow.

Google has a cheaper, cuter version of the Home coming

Google Home Mini

About a year ago, Google unveiled its first AI-powered smart speaker, a device it appropriately named Google Home. Featuring a sleek form factor, Google Home was designed to fit in nicely with most any living room and performs the type of tasks you'd expect from a smart speaker.

If the iPhone X is ‘designed for wireless,’ it really doesn’t show

iPhone 8 vs Galaxy Note 8

During this week's Apple keynote, execs from across the company made a big deal about how the new iPhones are "designed for wireless." That's a good soundbite, but when it comes to looking at how all the wireless features perform, that phrase makes less and less sense.
