 The Nest Cam IQ is the latest product from Alphabet-owned smart home company Nest, an HD security camera with a 4K sensor it uses to do things like intelligently track faces and people at higher resolution. I’ve been testing the $299 Nest Cam IQ for a while now, and it’s an improvement over other smart home security cameras – but its IQ still leaves a lot to be desired.… Read More

HP’s Spectre x2 finds its spot as one of the best Windows tablets, for what it’s worth

 The Spectre x2 is what a Surface Pro would feel like with HP’s design cues and a few better specs for the dollar. In fact, most of the Spectre x2’s drawbacks stem from having to squeeze so much into its frame, which is better than having glaring software issues. Nearly free of stutters under heavy workload, Windows 10 remains a smooth experience. Specs of a svelte slate The… Read More

With the immense wealth of the region, Dubai has quickly become one of the hottest places for companies to test out their newest, wildest future tech. It wasn't long ago that Dubai announced its plans to get flying taxis off the ground by the end of July, so it's quite fitting that robotic police — yes, actual autonomous police robots — will soon be patrolling the bustling city as well.

Canon’s new 6D Mark II looks like a great update for its entry level full-frame camera

 Canon has a new version of the 6D, its entry-level full-frame DSLR. The 6D debuted in 2012, and I purchased one of the very first off the line – five years later, it’s still a terrific DSLR that in some ways matches my 5D Mark IV. Now, Canon has a new 6D Mark II, and it looks like a great value for people looking to upgrade from their original 6D, or get into full-frame photography… Read More

lg flexible display

Setting new records in consumer tech is always an odd topic for a pretty obvious reason: the relentless advancement of technology means new "firsts" arrive on a near daily basis. Despite that, LG is pretty proud of its newest first-ever creation, and it's hard not to be impressed by it. The company just revealed the "world's first" 77-inch flexible OLED display, complete with transparency and 4K resolution. Would you ever need such a thing? Of course not, but just look at it.
