Tesla plans to finally make the reveal of their autonomous semi truck this Thursday at 8PM PT, while promising that it is going to blow your mind At least that’s what Elon Musk (CEO) is promising via a recent tweet today. Tesla Semi Truck unveil to be webcast live on Thursday at 8pm! This will blow your mind clear out of your skull and into an alternate dimension. Just need to find my portal gun … — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 12, 2017 Although most of us (all of us?) personally wouldn’t want our minds blow out of our skulls…

Another Bluetooth speaker rolling around the office here, this time one of the more smaller forms. Typically when they get to the smaller sizes, we don’t really know what we are walking into. Our expectations aren’t set as high because we know it’s either going to be mediocre, or one of the rare breeds that takes us by surprise. The issue is quality due to the compensation you have to make to get everything that small, and if company is willing to make it–or cut corners like the XBOOM Minis that sounded ok but kept falling apart and eventually damaging…

The Ring doorbell has gotten a lot of attention in the last few years thanks to the brilliant advertising on their part, mostly involving videos where “customers” of the Ring doorbell experienced someone trying to (or pondering the thought of) get into their home, and they were able to prevent it by catching them live in the act. Of course, they weren’t the first to provide a two-way communication device that delivered this protection–but, they were one of the first to get the attention they needed to take off. Since then, they have gotten a lot of praise as consumers…

There is nothing like watching a full truck pull up to the front of the building because what they have won’t fit in a normal delivery vehicle. Even better when one of those items is a brand new TV/display to play with. Thankfully this week, we had both.  Now we have been playing with the Vizio 65-inch E-Series 4K XLED Home Theater Display (model E65-E1) for the last so many days to get a feel for it, and have came up with our verdict (which makes it a hot buy in our eyes). Now, before I go any deeper into…

Home automation has come a very long ways from being confined to motorized TV lift mechanisms and other simple devices. It now encompasses so much more than simply providing homeowners with a way to double their space and save money, with those TV mechanisms leading the charge. Smart homes are now the up-and-coming home automation, and they are only getting more involved. Smart homes have been designed around making life easier for the person who lives there, no matter what form that takes. Scheduling appointments, making lists, reminding you to pick up milk – it can do all of these…

Sometimes it is the more simpler things in life that really come to save the day. Like a wireless phone charger that lifts your phone up as a stand versus a plate. With today’s phones, just about every popular modern model has an ability to keep its screen on at all times when it isn’t in your pocket. This allows it to present an energy-friendly all black screen with light colored text on it, displaying the time and possibly other data. Mix that with a stand and you get something you can see easily from a distant, turning a charging…

The new Xbox One X gaming console is now rolling out to consumers with its release today, and you can bet this will be one of the hottest demands for the holidays this season. However, with all of the neat perks you get with the new console, it won’t be the only thing in demand. With perks like 4K video and HDR comes the demand for capacity as these games are not forgiving when it comes to size. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction (Newton’s Third Law). In this case, we have extraordinary graphics and performance. Enhancements brought…

With the launch of the new Apple iPhone X three days ago, people have lined up as usual to get their hands on one, including all of the groups who can’t wait to simply throw it at the ground, hit it with a hammer or let Fido get his chops on it. Now that a number of tests have already been performed (and no, we are not going to add to that list with one ourselves), the verdict is in and seems to be similar across all experiences. The Apple X is the most crackable iPhone yet. By crackable I…

There is nothing new about tech companies going at each other in commercials, sometimes neck to neck for the purpose of making the other look bad, using the simple tool of comedy. Looking for something that will cause the viewer to feel a connection to the story behind it all is even better (for the win at least). Some of the greatest involved marketing stuns like Mac vs PC (“hey, I’m a Mac”<–>”and I’m, a PC”). Now, it’s Samsung’s turn as they take a swing at Apple with a video add going over the last ten years of iPhone ownership…

Home networking has strengthened by leaps in recent years as routers move toward multi-band AC solutions that can reach a great distance compared to the routers of the past. This of course is to be expected as everything improves as each year moves forward. However, these latest routers have displayed above and beyond performance, and they only get better as commercial technology makes its way home through mesh networking solutions, that can provide signal throughout some of the most complicated of homes. Today, we are reviewing a mesh solution by the company Zyxel, the Multy X AC3000 Tri-Band WiFi Mesh…
