In recent years, I’ve more than likely gone through more routers than any normal person ever should. You see, since I sit at a desk in my house all day long using the internet, I can tell almost instantly when my internet has slowed or something isn’t right. For the longest time, I blamed routers and so I replaced them regularly whenever something new came out. I now know that it has always been Comcast that was the problem (shocker), but through all of those changes to equipment, I was led to an upstart WiFi system that has inspired a whole new wave of routers for consumers. Even Google has jumped on board. I’m talking about the Eero Home WiFi System, which I now consider to be my favorite tech purchase of the year. (more…)
As a mobile gamer, I’d say 2016 was a solid year for Android games. We saw a
huge ridiculously massive launch with Pokémon GO, enjoyed multiplayer fun with Exploding Kittens, and made our way through beautiful landscapes in Alto’s Adventure. Sure, Tiny Wings still isn’t out on Android, but screw it, we’re moving on. (more…)
‘Tis the season, so let’s give stuff away. We have $200 worth of Google Play credit to give out, ten $20 codes in total, and we are looking for holiday winners.
We are using Rafflecopter once again to handle the logistics of entry and picking winners, making the process as easy possible for anyone who wants to enter. We have also added a ton of entry options, giving you the opportunity of having multiple entries.
Let’s do this. (more…)
While we are still bringing in votes for the DL Reader’s Choice for Phone of the Year (POTY), we are ready to present you with our choice(s). In 2016, we saw a plethora of great smartphones from a number of makers, which made for a very exciting and busy year.
Because there was such a high number of fantastic phones, it was actually quite the struggle to choose a single one as our favorite. As you will see, we have a couple runner ups this year, only because we didn’t want to have a three-way tie for favorite. (more…)
2016 was, to be honest, not exactly the best year in recent memory. From the nastiest presidential election we may ever see (until the next one in four years) to the early deaths of some of the great entertainers and people of this world, there was a lot to be sad about. But even in tech or Android specifically, we saw Samsung go through the Note 7 recall, carriers go extra shady on this “unlimited” idea, and even Google kill the Nexus line. What a year.
And now with that depressing glob of snot on your mind, let’s talk about five (or six) things that are still standing out from 2016 as we head into 2017. Because even if 2016 sucked, a lot of stuff did happen! (more…)
The OnePlus 3T has been in house for a good week or so now and it’s bringing back very similar vibes to the OnePlus 3, which makes sense since they are both so similar. Those are good vibes, by the way, as the original OnePlus 3 was already one of our favorite phones of the year. So what’s with the OnePlus 3T? Should you be mad about it’s existence so soon or excited that a company was able to improve a phone this quickly? Maybe a bit of both, but I’d lean towards the latter. Let’s talk about those ideas in this OnePlus 3T review. (more…)
After spending the past few weeks with Google Home running my home, the time has come for our review. Since this is one of those newish product categories, it wasn’t going to be fair to do this in less than 24 hours or even a week, because products like this aren’t smartphones. We all live with them differently, but also since we don’t use them constantly throughout a day like a smartphone, it’s impossible to know if your life needs one without thoroughly testing it for days on end.
