I recently reviewed the Toast wood cover for Surface Laptop. I liked it so much I was curious about adding Toast to other Surface devices, and, just as importantly, what were those other wood options (Ash, Bamboo) like? Enter in the Ash Toast wood cover for the Surface Book 2 15-inch! How was it and what hilarious popular movie reference did I choose for the custom etching? You'll have to watch my quick video review and read on to find out! Toast cover for Surface Book 2: What it is Toast is a small company based out of Portland, Oregon. They make all sorts of custom covers for tablets, laptops, and phones out of real wood. The Toast cover sticks with 3M tape and due to the design is easily removed (well, relatively and you won't damage your device either). For Surface Book 2 I opted for the ash wood type, which is very light and should not contrast heavily with the magnesium chassis. There are a few parts to this cover including: Top cover Bottom cover Hinge Edges The top cover … [Read more...] about Bringing a wood finish to the Surface Book 2 with a Toast cover

SAMSUNG HAS OFFICIALLY unveiled the Galaxy S9 and S9+, its duo of flagships for 2018 that failed to have many surprises in store. Given the huge amount of leaks building up to Samsung's MWC presser, news of the smartphone's upgraded dual aperture cameras, 10nm innards and ability to capture 'super slo-mo' video was expected months in advance. The only surprising bit of information, perhaps, was the Galaxy S9's pricing, with the duo of flagships set to cost less than some rumours had suggested. Still, the smartphones will no doubt prove to be among the most sought-after this year, so we've rounded up everything you need to know about picking one up below.

While the portable phones from two decades ago have gone through absolutely mind-boggling improvements to arrive at where they are today, it has nevertheless been some time since we've had any change in the form factor. Indeed, regardless of manufacturer, a smartphone today mostly means a rounded rectangular slab with 60% and more of its surface taken up by a touch-enabled screen . Interestingly enough, while those two are likely to remain a constant this next decade, companies like LG envision a future where they are far more flexible. Case in point: a new LG design patent outlines a rectangular smartphone that can bend without a problem in order to conform to a bracelet on your wrist. We put emphasis on the 'design' part, as the filing itself reveals nothing in terms of how the South Korea-based electronics giant intends for such a gadget to do so. In other words, while LG has already covered quite some groundwork in this particular niche with the LG G Flex and G Flex 2 , … [Read more...] about LG awarded design patent outlining a phone that will bend and attach to a bracelet
