This was the case for the Galaxy S4 and S5, Galaxy S6 and S7, S8 and S9, and now the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy Note 9.Most of these revisions have been sensible updates. Samsung has a track record of listening closely to consumers and tweaking things ever so slightly to keep these updates worth buying. The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is one of the most sensible revisions I’ve seen to date, and presents a lot of value for the consumer that wants it all. This is our full Samsung Galaxy Note 9 review.

What always drew me to Lamborghinis as a child wasn't the performance statistics, or what I would read about how they handled. It was the looks. In all honesty, a Lamborghini could drive like a shopping trolley full of bricks and still retain a lot of its appeal. It then feels extra special -- as you ease off the throttle after a few hot laps on track, as much to let your body recover as the car -- that the new Lamborghini Huracán Evo delivers on every front. Five years after the introduction of the original Huracán, not to mention Spyders, performance versions and so on, the entry-level Lambo gets its first full refresh. The new Evo replaces the all-wheel-drive coupe in the Huracán lineup. It cherry picks a variety of features from its bigger siblings, and more importantly, shows off some of Lambo's brand-new tricks.At the center of the Huracán Evo (quite literally) is the same 631-horsepower, naturally aspirated, 5.2-liter V10 engine from the Huracán … [Read more...] about 2019 Lamborghini Huracán Evo first drive review: Better in every way
Review By Andrew O'Hara Wednesday, December 05, 2018, 03:58 am PT (06:58 am ET) Twelve South has expanded their Journal line to both the MacBook Pro and the CaddySack travel tote, giving a more modern option to the ever-popular BookBook style.CaddySack and MacBook Pro Journal Not all that long ago, Twelve South added Journal to its line of iPhone cases, which has a modern flair compared to the vintage appeal of the BookBook. More recently, the line has expanded again, with the protective cases for Macs and the multi-purpose accessory case CaddySack get the same styling. Journal's trademark are clean edges with subtle touches and accents, reminiscent of a leather-bound journal. On either model, Twelve South's logo is embossed on the back, Journal is down the spine, and the iconic feather quill is in the lower right corner of the front. Their exteriors and designs are quite similar, but the interiors and purposes are vastly different.Pen and quill logo on CaddySack and MacBook Pro … [Read more...] about Review: Twelve South leather Journal line for MacBook Pro and additional gear beautiful, but expensive
The Encyclopedia Britannica defines the law of diminishing returns as an economic law, stating “if one input in the production of a commodity is increased while all other inputs are held fixed, a point will eventually be reached at which additions of the input yield progressively smaller, or diminishing, increases in output.” It forces us to wonder how much money is too much money for a product when we can get something similar for less and feel like we got more out of it. Enter the Acer Chromebook Spin 13, the latest in a new wave of Chromebooks looking to re-shape what has been the “cheap and functional” status quo for years. It has everything you want out of a premium Chromebook in 2018, from a high-quality build to powerful internals. I really like this machine. It’s everything I have wanted out of a Chromebook and then some. Yet, one big thing keeps me from absolutely loving it.What that something is, as well as what the law of diminishing returns has … [Read more...] about Acer Chromebook Spin 13 review: The best Chromebook, but at what cost?
The Honor 8X is a true successor to the sub-$200 Honor 7X, with a larger screen, more storage, better battery life, and an improved camera. Honor’s X lineup of smartphones have been crushing the budget and mid-range market over the past few years. Each one has outsold its predecessor, which is how it should work, but it doesn’t always work that way in the smartphone world. The Honor 7X was one of the year’s best budget smartphones, and the Honor 8X has some pretty big shoes to fill. Can Honor top the Honor 7X in its budget segment? Well, we’ve spent a little over a week using the Honor 8X, so let’s find out. Specs The Honor 8X sports a 6.5-inch display (making it the biggest screen in this price range), with a resolution of 2340x1080. That means that this is a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and there is indeed a notch here. It’s an LCD panel as well, with a pixel density of 396, and 84.4-percent screen-to-body ratio. Powering the Honor 8X, there is the … [Read more...] about Honor 8X Review: The Best Looking Sub-€250 Smartphone On The Market
