I already wrote last week about the problem of invisible malware, which can exist in your computer’s Basic Input/Output System…

Amid a growing crowd of super-thin, super-light and super-fast gaming laptops, HP’s Omen X 2S 15 just jumped above the noise.

The dream of dual-booting Windows 10 on Chromebooks appears dead

It sounded dreamy. Late last year, signs of an “AltOS” mode appeared in Google code, indicating that the company was working on a way to let you dual-boot into Windows 10 on high-end Chromebooks like the Pixelbook. It was apparently too good to be true, alas, as new developments suggest that Google abandoned the secretive “Project Campfire” months ago. Poking around Chromium code, Redditor u/crosfrog noticed comments stating AltOS mode is now deprecated, as first reported by Kevin Tofel at…

Best Samsung Galaxy S10 Cases: S10, S10 Plus & S10e

We’re incredibly impressed with Burkley’s range of handcrafted, premium leather cases. It’s pricier, but you get what you pay for. The detachable wallet case is particularly attractive (£55.59/US$69). It’s a two-part design that includes a full leather snap-on bumper case that attaches magnetically to a leather wallet folio – you essentially get two cases in one. The folio accommodates three cards (including a photo ID) and cash. There’s a slight weight to it, but that’s hardly a detractor. The case feels…

The best smart door locks 2019: Reviews and buying advice

The first locks date back more than a thousand years, and while traditional lock-and-key systems have improved over time, the basic mechanism hasn’t really changed: A piece of metal that is just the right shape pushes pins inside a lock into the proper position, allowing the lock mechanism to turn. As a society, it’s been tough to replace a system that has worked reasonably reliably for literally a millennium. Are smart locks really better? You can thank the hospitality industry…
