We’ve said it before, but in case you somehow missed it, we have been using SHIELD TV in our homes since 2015 and we love it. Back then, if you were looking for an awesome Android TV experience, plus a sweet gaming experience, there was no better choice. Now, in 2017, NVIDIA is back with an updated set-top box, looking to reclaim its own thrown in the Android TV ecosystem. (more…)
I know this LG V20 review should have been out months ago, but hey, better late than never, right? Actually, as you’ll find out in the video below, the V20 has just been one of the tougher phones to review. It’s not that LG hasn’t done some good things here, it’s just that the V20 comes off as such a niche device with a small audience that the approach to reviewing it had to be figured out too. Either way, it’s here, our LG V20 review. (more…)
This week, I took to the task of hooking up Google WiFi throughout my home. It’s quite possible that someone reading this is also going through the same process, or is possibly thinking about trying out Google’s mesh network hardware. With this post, I’ll go over the basics of setting up Google WiFi, then provide my initial thoughts. (more…)
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…)
