    Is Memorial Day the new Black Friday? Hopefully not, as we don’t need another occasion for frantic bargain hunters to literally fight to the death for TVs, phones and home appliances they generally already own.

    10 million unique users may not be enough to save the fall of Nintendo's virgin venture into the mobile world.

    Pebble does not use ePaper displays. It achieves a certain likeness to ePaper displays through memory-in-pixel LCDs on its smartwatches, both old and new, but it's not an ePaper display like the one the YotaPhone uses. But unless it can improve on that technology further, perhaps manufacturers should consider something ...

    Let's talk about audio. How our phones handle music and media is often overlooked for more impressive visuals. Playing games or streaming films looks better on camera. Video game performance can be used to rank phone performance, as most apps really don't tax our gadgets that severely. "Benchmarking" often means looking ...

    Here’s a fun fact for you. Up until today, I didn’t know what a “Twitter canoe” is. I’ve been on Twitter since before 2009, so I may not be “old school” by some standards, and I didn’t even set my computer on fire in protest when Twitter wanted to break chronological order of tweets. So maybe I’m just ...
