There are good chromebooks for cheaper, and the Google Pixelbook continues to be the very best laptop loaded with Chrome OS that you can buy, but when it comes to the best chromebook you can and should spend money on, the $500 Samsung Chromebook Plus v2, like its predecessor, is your best bet. Unlike any other device,…

Universal Soldier Is a Cautionary Tale About Reckless Resurrection Universal Soldier Is a Cautionary Tale About Reckless Resurrection

Two American soldiers fight to the death in Vietnam. That’s the start of Universal Soldier, which imagines the pair being brought back to life and given superstrength so they can (inevitably) fight each other again. The movie is stupidly entertaining—but like the UniSol program itself, there are some serious glitches.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout Is Straight Up Incredible Mission: Impossible - Fallout Is Straight Up Incredible

When Tom Cruise jumping out of an airplane, getting hit by lightning, and saving Henry Cavill as they plummet towards Paris is maybe the least exciting thing in your movie, that movie is pretty special. Such is the case with Mission: Impossible - Fallout which is, in a word, incredible.

This Body Heat-Powered Smartwatch Gets One Thing Very Right This Body Heat-Powered Smartwatch Gets One Thing Very Right

One of the most interesting gadgets I’ve tested in the past few years was the Matrix PowerWatch: a fitness-tracking timepiece powered only by the wearer’s body heat. The battery-free technology was neat, but the watch’s limited functionality wasn’t. Matrix Industries’ new PowerWatch X promises to be a more useful and…

Netflix is Killing Desktop Reviews, Which Were Pretty Worthless Anyways Netflix is Killing Desktop Reviews, Which Were Pretty Worthless Anyways

You know your critical analysis of Stranger Things you wrote at work during your lunch breaks while everyone else was on vacation? The one you submitted on Netflix’s desktop site?

I Really Hope HTC Doesn't Go Out Like This I Really Hope HTC Doesn't Go Out Like This

After years of declining sales, unloading $1 billion worth of patents and personnel to Google, and just recently slashing 25 percent of its global workforce, when it comes to HTC, I got one big question: So what’s left? Sure, HTC may have been able insulate its promising Vive VR business by spinning that department …

A Look Back at Warriors of Virtue, a Kangaroo-Filled Nightmare That Haunted Me for Years A Look Back at Warriors of Virtue, a Kangaroo-Filled Nightmare That Haunted Me for Years

When I was a kid, I had a recurring nightmare in which I was being chased by a group of gigantic kangaroos hellbent on murdering me. For years, I couldn’t understand where the dreams came from—until recently, when I offhandedly mentioned them to my boyfriend.

AT&T's WatchTV Is the Very Cheapest Way to Stream Live TV, But Is It Worth It?  AT&T's WatchTV Is the Very Cheapest Way to Stream Live TV, But Is It Worth It? 

AT&T, despite owning DirecTV and thus the live TV streaming service DirecTV Now, just launched another: AT&T WatchTV. Like DirecTV Now, it streams live TV to nearly every kind of mobile device and set-top box. Like DirecTV Now, it has an easy-to-navigate interface. Unlike DirecTV Now, AT&T WatchTV is the cheapest way…

Hisense's Absurd 100-Inch Laser TV Turned Me Into a Big Screen Believer Hisense's Absurd 100-Inch Laser TV Turned Me Into a Big Screen Believer

When discussing a big-screen TV, size is bound to be the primary topic of conversation, but with Hisense’s 100-inch Ultra HD Laser TV, bigness approaches a thought-terminating cliche—one I have been happy to let take over my puny mind.

The Secret to Razer's Sick New Mechanical Keyboard Is Freaking Lasers The Secret to Razer's Sick New Mechanical Keyboard Is Freaking Lasers

The office may hate me, but Razer’s new Huntsman Elite keyboard feels so good to type on I’m willing to suffer the glares for all the noise I’m making. It feels a little silly saying that what with me having expensive keyboard collecting habit. But Razer keyboards never actually wind up in the collection. For me Razer…

Ant-Man and the Wasp Should Be Called The Wasp and Ant-Man, Which Is Why It's So Good Ant-Man and the Wasp Should Be Called The Wasp and Ant-Man, Which Is Why It's So Good

Ant-Man and the Wasp moves so fast it feels like it’s over before it begins. Set over the course of about two days in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s one of the most propulsive Marvel films to date. Director Peyton Reed’s movie is also exciting, beautiful, funny, and heartfelt to boot.

Motorola’s Making the Cheap Smartphone Even Harder to Resist Motorola’s Making the Cheap Smartphone Even Harder to Resist

Apple and Samsung would have you believe quality smartphones should cost the many hundreds of dollars you must sacrifice to obtain their rarefied devices. But in recent years, the march of time has made that notion obsolete. In 2012, a $200 device was nearly unusable. But now? Sharp screens are cheap, and fast…

There’s a new battleground in the proxy war between MAGA hat-wearing Trump supporters and pussy hat-wearing members of the #Resistance, and it’s the Yelp page of a restaurant in Virginia that asked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave.

I'm Too Big for This Miniature Jurassic Park Jeep, But That's Not Keeping It Out of My Garage I'm Too Big for This Miniature Jurassic Park Jeep, But That's Not Keeping It Out of My Garage

If you’re a longtime fan of the franchise, 2018 is the perfect year for another Jurassic movie because it also happens to be the 25th anniversary of the original Steven Spielberg film. The downside? If you can remember being wowed by the first Jurassic Park when you saw it in the theater as a kid, it means there’s now…

Luke Cage Season Two Is All About the Heroes and Villains Shaping the Unbreakable Man's Legacy Luke Cage Season Two Is All About the Heroes and Villains Shaping the Unbreakable Man's Legacy

Luke Cage exists in a world all its own: Harlem, a place where art, culture, and families still thrive despite constant violence between organized criminals and police rages in the streets. In season two, Harlem isn’t just home for Luke, it’s part of his larger destiny to become a hero.

Hawkman’s Return Focuses on the Best Parts of DC Comics’ High-Flying Hero Hawkman’s Return Focuses on the Best Parts of DC Comics’ High-Flying Hero

The character nicknamed the Winged Wonder sits in a weird place in the DC Comics pantheon. Hawkman’s made the big-deal jump from comics to cartoons (not to mention live-action) and has an instantly recognizable look. But all that look tells you is that he can fly and bust heads. Hawkman’s always been more than that.

The Sense8 Finale Was Just as Moving and Messy as the Series Deserved The Sense8 Finale Was Just as Moving and Messy as the Series Deserved

Netflix’s Sense8 finale doesn’t quite hang together. But “Amor Vincit Omnia” is bursting at its broken seams with warmth, hope, and a desire for connection. So, in short: It’s Sense8, same as it’s always been. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

You Can Strap a GoPro to This New Hot Wheels Car and Ride Along on All Your Dangerous Stunts

It’s also the…

Hyperkin's Duke Xbox Controller Is Every Bit As Ridiculous as the Original

My tiny hands remember the original, enormous Xbox controller with fondness. Not because it was ergonomic or a joy to use, but in the same way I remember other absurd and outdated technology—with absolute amusement. The original Xbox controller was a beast, and the tweaked and high tech $70 Duke from Hyperkin, that…
