MSI's Latest Laptops Are Smaller, Sturdier, and Some Even Vibrate

When MSI released the GS65 last year, it took a risk. Instead of making something massively powerful like the GT75, MSI swapped out its typical red-and-black color scheme and focused on a thin-and-light to create a more portable, but still fast all-rounder. And as a result, the GS65 became the company’s best selling…Read more...

The Totally Unofficial CES 2019 Meta Awards

The 13 Coolest Things We Saw at CES This Year

Several people on the ground at CES in Las Vegas told me that it was down year. I’d argue that it was just plain boring. But that doesn’t mean that there weren’t some neat gadgets in the mix. In fact, a baker’s dozen of them were just plain amazing.Read more...

The First Bendable Phone Is an Exciting Piece of Junk

Back in November, just days before Samsung teased its flexible display phone, Royole burst onto the scene with the Flexpai, the world’s first bendy phone. Sadly, demos were held in San Francisco, and I was in New York. By the time I found out, there simply wasn’t enough time for me to get there.Read more...

Acer's New Swift 7 Is So Thin It Doesn't Seem Real

At some point, Acer is going to have to give up its yearly quest to make the Swift 7 just a little bit slimmer, but that time hasn’t come yet, because at CES 2019 Acer has once again triumphed over physics to create something stupendously skinny.Read more...

I Tried Really Hard to Rip These Incredibly Tough Pantyhose and Failed Miserably

There’s a lot wrong with women’s fashion, but torn stockings rank pretty high on the list of annoying quirks I’ve just learned to shut up and deal with. Seriously, anything will tear pantyhose. Is your toenail hideously long? Tear. Did you walk too close to a sharp table edge? Giant hole in your thigh. Did you simply…Read more...

With Spigen's New Over-the-Air Charging Case, We're One Step Closer to Truly Wireless Power Being a Reality

Over the past few years, Ossia has impressed us with demonstrations of its over-the-air power delivery system which promises to make charging cables and pads obsolete. But it’s always been just demos of prototypes, which feels like a constant tease of a future we want right now. For CES 2019, however, Ossia worked…Read more...

Sitting In This Lamborghini Massage Chair Was Like Having Bad Sex With Optimus Prime

CES is a physically taxing event. So far, according to my trusty Fitbit Versa, I have walked upwards of 50,000 steps while carrying a 15-pound backpack. I busted my knee, I’m fighting a cold, and I don’t remember what the loving embrace of a human feels like.Read more...

Nvidia CEO Trashes AMD's New GPU: 'The Performance Is Lousy'

This Robot Doesn't Care If You Want to Buy It, But Maybe That's Why It'll Succeed

Home robots had a bad 2018, and compared to previous years, they’re not as visible on the ground at CES 2019, too. The robots that haven’t bit the dust tend to be of the “teach kids how to code” variety, or conceptual bots like the laundry folding FoldiMate that at this point are more CES perennials than likely…Read more...

Olay Convinced Me to Moisturize By Showing Me What I'll Look Like in 20 Years

Las Vegas is a very bad place for skin. The casinos are full of smoke, the air is dry, and there are damaging UV rays everywhere because well, it’s the desert.

This Wand Is Like a Real-Life Photoshop Editor for Your Skin

When it comes to good skin, at least there’s always photo-editing software. In real life, however, the only solution to covering up age spots, acne scars, redness, and dark circles is slathering on creams. But Opté’s beauty wand is like taking a Photoshop airbrush to your skin in real life. In fact, after watching it…Read more...

Is CES Afraid Of Sex or Women or Both?

CES, the annual conference showcasing the cutting-edge in consumer tech, has a reputation for not only being dominated by men, but largely catering to them.
