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...

Okay, This Argument for 8K TVs Is Kinda Convincing 

I am not on board with 8K. The TVs will be expensive, there’s zero content for them, and they’ll heavily rely on internal processors for upscaling that already struggle to upscale HD content properly to 4K. It seems smarter to work on HDR tech, which makes a more substantial improvement at this time than higher…Read more...

The Totally Unofficial CES 2019 Meta Awards

Every year, CES sets the stage for all the wild, wonderful, and boundary-pushing tech we expect to see later in the year.

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 Weird, Bizarre, and Amusing Tech at CES 2019

For all the cool gadgets that get shown off at CES, there’s also a bunch of things that make even the most jaded tech bloggers squint in a mix of confusion and amused befuddlement. Some of it you’ll find on the main show floor, others you’ll find in the nooks and corners at the Sands Expo and Eureka Park.Read more...

Do you find yourself feeling lonely or craving companionship? Have you considered purchasing a machine that could fill that void? No, not that kind of robot.

This Sad Booth Is a Metaphor for CES This Year

The Consumer Electronics Show is typically an assault on your senses. There are flashing lights, blaring speakers, bizarre stunts, and this year, a yacht. Well, the Shenzhen 3iRobotics Co, LTD booth and a random guy snoozing while sitting upright in crappy chair offered us a perfect metaphor for CES 2019. It was sad,…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...

AMD CEO Talks Ray Tracing Development and Future Windows Laptops

AMD CEO Lisa Su sat down with press, including Gizmodo, yesterday to chat about the company’s CES announcements.

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

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...

What Made TVs Fascinating at CES This Year

It’s hard to imagine CES without TVs, and this year that almost happened. This is not to say there weren’t any TVs in Las Vegas. There were a lot! There were 8K TVs, OLED TVs, QLED TVs, big TVs, small TVs. But it’s hard to explain how they’re meaningfully different than the fancy TVs we were excited about at CES last…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.

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.
