This Silly Button From Logitech Made My Smart Home Fun Again

I have issues with smart home technology. The promise of a Jetsons-style, automated living environment has never been closer, but the experience basically sucks right now. After spending a few weeks with a programmable button by Logitech, however, I feel suddenly hopeful. Read More >>

Samsung’s New iPad Pro Is Just Fantastic

Coming a year after the launch of Apple’s first 9.7-inch iPad Pro, the new iteration from Samsung feels daring. While it has the same sleek lines, is just as light, and possesses the magnetic connection on one side for easy keyboard cover attachment, Samsung’s iPad Pro for 2017 is, inexplicably called the Galaxy Tab S3, and unlike previous iPads this one runs on Android.

The Power Rangers Film Doesn’t Actually Want to Be a Power Rangers Film

The final act of Power Rangers is everything you could want from a Power Rangers film. It’s fun, funny, action-packed, and filled with so many Zords and monsters that you’ll actually feel like you’re watching a big-budget update of the popular kids’ franchise. The problem is that the 90 minutes preceding it wants as little to do with the Power Rangers as possible. Read More >>

The Beats X Earbuds Are AirPods For People Who Like to Move

Last Autumn, Apple killed the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and tried to convince us all that we would be much happier with Bluetooth headphones instead. Apple’s flagship solution for all of that woe came by the way of the AirPods, £160 headphones with absolutely no wires. For the price, I like AirPods, but they aren’t without problems. Fortunately, the Apple-owned Beats has a solution for users who want Bluetooth headphones without those problems, and it comes by way of the new £130 Beats X earbuds. Read More >>

Logan Is Beautiful, Sophisticated, and Still a Kick-Ass Superhero Film

Anyone who’s seen the trailers could easily guess that Logan is the best solo Wolverine film, but it’s more than that. It’s a legitimately special film that just happens to star superheroes — a film that wouldn’t be out of place at the Academy Awards. And it’s still just as badass as any Wolverine fan could want.

HP Made a Laptop I Actually Want to Use

After spending some time with HP’s redesigned 15-inch Spectre X360, it seems to me the company’s recipe for clawing its way back into the hearts of the people should have been obvious all along: lots of power and features in an attractive package for less money than the competition. Duh. Read More >>

Apple AirPods Are Too Simple for Their Own Good

When they were first announced in September, it was obvious that AirPods were Apple’s attempt to distract everyone from the iPhone’s lack of a headphone jack. At $160, AirPods are Apple’s version of truly wireless earphones, a gadget lots of companies have been trying to perfect with varying degrees of success. No one disagrees that wireless is the future, the big question is what company will finally manage to make a truly wireless earbud that is comfortable, affordable, and worth using over more traditional wireless headphones. After two months of delays, AirPods are finally shipping—but don’t run out and buy them. While they’re the best buds of their kind in the world, they’re too inconvenient to really be worth it.

Rogue One Truly Understands How to Be a Great Star Wars Film

The most moving moments in the history of Star Wars are always the darkest. The end of The Empire Strikes Back and the deaths of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda are a few examples on a much longer list. Thankfully, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story understands that and more. It’s a film that nails what it means to be Star Wars in seemingly every way, and it’s not afraid to scare the bejeezus out of a few kids to get there. Read More >>

Huawei Fit Gives Fitbit a Run For Its Money

The smartwatch and fitness tracker markets might be in a race to the bottom, but that hasn’t stopped Huawei, the Chinese phone maker, from tossing a watch-shaped tracker into the ring. It’s an interesting tack for a company known primarily for its phones. The Huawei Fit looks like the Pebble Round smartwatch, functions like a Fitbit Charge, and costs less than both. Read More >>

Google Home Obliterates the Amazon Echo, But It’s Got Some Work to Do

It’s late, I’ve just plugged the Google Home voice assistant in, and I’ve got a fridge full of pumpkin and pie crusts and Thanksgiving is three weeks away. “Okay Google, how do I make a pumpkin pie?” Google Home happily answers my question, firing off a summary of the instructions as told to it by AllRecipes.com.

The Google Pixel is Too Dumb and Ugly to Replace Your iPhone

The Pixel is the first Google phone built from top to bottom, and the company thinks it’s finally made the Android device that can conquer the iPhone. It’s a valiant effort, but is it enough? Read More >>

The Lenovo Yoga Book is the Future of Laptops, But it’s Missing an Operating System

Lenovo’s new Yoga Book draws the eye like no other tablet or laptop available today. People aren’t always sure what I’m reading my comics or jotting down notes on, but they know it’s fascinating, and tiny, and cool. With its capacitive touch keyboard that turns into a drawing tablet with the press of a button, the Yoga Book is absolutely the future of laptops and tablets, and the blurred space in between. But Lenovo’s thinnest laptop ever also has one major problem in that it only comes in a Windows and an Android flavour. Neither OS is ready for the future Lenovo’s built. Read More >>

This Robot Is Trying to Replace My Dog

My dog hates the robot. When I sit on the floor to play with the robot, the dog gets up with a huff and comes over. His tail wags, and he gets in my face. When I avoid him because I have a robot to review he...sits on the robot. It makes upset little noises from under his rear. Read More >>

GoPro Hero5 Review: A More Perfect Action Camera

We use a lot of GoPros here at Gizmodo. We use them to shoot timelapse battery tests for phones and 360 degree videos of multibillion dollar transit hubs and test runs of expensive cars on a dirt track. So a new GoPro action camera with a lower price tag and badass features has us pumped. We’d love for this to be the camera we choose to update our own fleet of GoPros—more on that in a second—but the Hero5 is definitely the one we’d recommend to a bike nut friend who wants to get into the action cam game.

Roku Premiere+ and Ultra are Better Than the Competition and a Third of the Price

Last month, Roku unleashed a whole slew of new set-top boxes meant to cater to every single person ever. There’s the box for people with old TVs (Roku Express+), the slightly different box for cheapskates (Roku Express), the boxes for regular joes (Roku Stick and Roku Premiere), and the coolest boxes — the two meant for people with a super expensive TV and a need to watch more than Netflix: the Roku Premiere+ and more expensive, but fully featured Roku Ultra.
