Review: Apple's late-2016 15" MacBook Pro with Touch Barrating

11/14/2016, 08:02:AM

Apple's new Late 2016 15-inch MacBook Pro is the lightest and thinnest MacBook Pro ever, but unlike the company's earlier ultralight MacBook Air, it packs a fast, quad-core Intel CPU and a dedicated AMD Radeon Pro GPU along with 16GB of high speed RAM and other "pro" level niceties. After spending some time with the new flagship, AppleInsider came away impressed at what Apple was able to achieve.


Review: Apple's Late-2016 MacBook Pro without Touch Barrating

11/13/2016, 07:21:AM

Apple's new 13-inch MacBook Pro sans Touch Bar and Touch ID is in many ways an evolutionary update, offering would-be buyers a lightweight, relatively powerful portable rig with a beautiful Retina display and solid keyboard and trackpad. But is a major redesign and minor internal upgrades worth a starting price of $1,499?

Review: Apple Watch Series 2 is a great improvement, but watchOS 3 steals the showrating

09/24/2016, 01:10:PM

Equipped with a noticeably faster dual-core S2 processor, its own standalone GPS radio, and now with a waterproof design, the Apple Watch Series 2 is a worthwhile and fantastic upgrade from the first-generation model. It's also a great jumping on point for new buyers. But the biggest changes come with a software overhaul in watchOS 3, meaning early adopters will probably be happy with their existing Apple Watch for another year.


Back in black: iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus mega reviewrating

09/22/2016, 08:38:AM

Apple's latest iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are faster, sport significantly better cameras, expand system-wide haptics in iOS 10 with a new solid state Home button and Taptic Engine, introduce Wide Color and other major Retina HD technology improvements without changing their display resolutions, add new water resistance and include updates to system components ranging from RAM to storage to wireless capabilities.

08/13/2016, 11:43:AM

Logitech's Create Backlit Keyboard Case, made specifically for the smaller 9.7-inch iPad Pro, leverages the tablet's Smart Connector port for both data and power, negating the need for a separate battery or pairing process with virtually no key lag.


Review: Atlas Wristband 2 makes some improvements, but not enoughrating

07/17/2016, 02:59:AM

Atlas' first Wristband was an ambitious but ultimately failed attempt to build a fitness tracker geared toward strength training, instead of just cardio-oriented activities like running and cycling. The second-generation model makes some modest improvements, but doesn't solve some of the fundamental complaints we had.


Review: Garmin's Fenix 3 HR is an iOS-connected smartwatch for fitness fanaticsrating

07/02/2016, 03:40:PM

Garmin's highest-end smartwatch in some ways sets a gold standard for fitness trackers, but for the layman, it can be simultaneously overwhelming and lacking in creature comforts.


Review: Rachio's iPhone-connected Smart Sprinkler Controller is efficient, easy to userating

06/28/2016, 12:15:PM

Right out of the box, you can tell that DJI's Phantom 4 is a complete reimagining of the entry-level lineup. From the sleek chassis to advanced automated controls, DJI has set a new standard, leaving competitors and its own legacy models in the dust.


Review: Moxiware Apple Pencil Magnet is simple, affordable and functionalrating

05/15/2016, 12:51:AM

Though the Apple Pencil is expertly designed to not roll away on a table, there's still not an ideal place to put it when it's not in use, especially when being used on your lap or while standing. Moxiware's new Apple Pencil Magnet aims to fix that with a simple and affordable accessory, though its aesthetics may not be for everyone.


Review: Logi Base Smart Connector charging dock is the best way to juice your iPad Prorating

04/30/2016, 10:22:AM

Review: Apple's 2016 12" MacBook is a welcome improvement, but won't change any mindsrating

04/27/2016, 12:16:PM

Apple's second-generation ultraportable 12-inch MacBook features some noteworthy internal improvements, including an extra hour of battery life and Intel's latest Skylake processors, that make it a worthwhile update. But all of the major concessions of the 2015 model remain, making it unlikely this refresh will change anyone's opinion on the divisive-yet-impressive notebook.


Review: Polar Balance is a great smartscale for Polar fansrating

04/24/2016, 12:39:AM

Polar's first smartscale is a polished and perfectly serviceable product, but a few peculiar design decisions keep it from maximizing its potential, making it mostly of interest to people already in the Polar ecosystem.

Elgato's Eve Energy smartplug is a perfectly serviceable home automation product, but in some ways it proves that Apple's HomeKit platform still has a ways to go before it becomes mainstream.


Review: Apple's 9.7" iPad Pro is professional-grade, powerful & priceyrating

04/03/2016, 07:52:PM

After being neglected in 2015, Apple's 9.7-inch iPad has received a much-needed professional makeover, gaining key features from the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and even outperforming it in a few ways. It's a substantial upgrade, and one we find absolutely worthy of the "Pro" moniker, though the $599 starting price may deter some buyers.


Review: Apple's 4" iPhone SE is better than we deserverating

04/02/2016, 12:06:PM

With a decidedly classic design just like the iPhone 5 series, the new iPhone SE has been completely revamped inside in a huge way. For fans of smaller phones, the iPhone SE is just what you've been waiting for -- a capable, modern smartphone in a compact, ultraportable, proven chassis.


Review: Atlas Wristband is an ambitious but flawed strength training trackerrating

02/13/2016, 12:26:PM

The Atlas Wristband is a noble first effort at something no other fitness tracker does, but there are too many rough edges to recommend it to anyone but a small subset of fitness enthusiasts.
