Review: Jawbone Up24 review

Review: Jawbone Up24 review

The smart and sporty Jawbone Up24 is the most fashionable, lightweight and comfortable fitness tracking wearable you can buy, and it has a beautiful app to match.

Hands-on review: MWC 2014: Huawei Talkband B1

Titanfall helps Xbox One sales, but PlayStation 4 still in the lead

Xbox Gamer: Snoop, you don’t give a shiznit about games so stay the hell out of my Xbox!

Xbox Gamer: Snoop, you don’t give a shiznit about games so stay the hell out of my Xbox!

It was bad enough that I had to endure Snoop Dogg – or Snoop Lion, or Snoop Squirrel, or whatever moniker he’s going by these days – for an entire stage in Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

Video: PS4 vs Xbox One vs PC: PAX East 2014 takes a stand

It’s been six months since Sony and Microsoft started their next global battle for living room gaming domination. The Sony PS4 and Xbox One have been neck and neck in some ways, while the race has definitely been more one sided in others.

Hands-on review: Toshiba Satellite P55t 4K Ultra HD review

It’s easy to clamor for 4K laptops, 4K TVs, 4K screens everywhere. But it’s also important to ask, "Why do I need or want 4K?" Toshiba looks to answer that question with its Toshiba Satellite P55t 4K Ultra HD, a 15.6-inch clamshell with a popping 3840 x 2160 IGZO screen. That’s a whopping 221 pixels-per-inch, [...]
