HostGator Web Hosting Review & Rating

Every business needs a website, and for that you need a web hosting service. It doesn’t matter if it’s a fully functioning e-commerce setup or a simple page with little more than your contact information. The feature-packed HostGator boasts wallet-friendly prices, and it offers plenty of tools to webmasters. HostGator has quality dedicated and virtual private server (VPS) server packages, but its shared plans are one of the reasons why the company stands out from the very crowded web hosting…

Astell&Kern AK XB10 Bluetooth DAC and amp review: Wireless, hi-res audio for any headphones

Anyone who’s invested in great-sounding wired headphones and wants the opportunity to add high-res streaming capabilities to those cans should take a serious look at Astell&Kern’s AK XB10 Bluetooth DAC and headphone amp. A design that’s all Astell&Kern The AK XB10 comes in the shape of a small puck, measuring just shy of 2 inches in diameter. The DAC is rated for about five hours of active use and 300 hours of standby. The five-hour run-time is a disappointment. In…

Apple MacBook Air (2017) Review: Little Difference But Still a Great Laptop

In June 2017 Apple updated the processor on its 13in MacBook Air from 1.6GHz to 1.8GHz – not a massive improvement as the processor is the same generation as the MacBook Air used when it was last significantly updated in 2015 – but the MacBook Air remains a great choice for an entry-level Mac laptop. The MacBook Air is the laptop you see in coffee shops, libraries, offices, and student digs all over the world. Apple might have forgotten it in…

Hands-on: The Evil Within 2 Review

While this year saw Capcom take the Resident Evil franchise in a new direction by shifting to first-person and incorporating stealth in Resident Evil 7, Bethesda has been busy recapturing the series’ roots in The Evil Within with the help of original Resi director Shinji Mikami. Now he’s back at it with The Evil Within 2, continuing the story of Detective Sebastian Castellanos, this time as he delves into the town of Union on the hunt for his daughter and, surprise…

AVM Fritz!Box 7590 review: Flagship wireless router with VDSL supervectoring and MU-MIMO Review

With a smart new design, the Fritz!Box 7590, which is AVM’s new flagship do-it-all wireless xDSL router, adds both faster broadband and speedier wi-fi. But there’s a lot more to it than that. In the box you receive a predominantly cream, aerofoil-profiled device — a new design — plus an Ethernet cable, a fat power plug, a combination phone/DSL cable, and a micro-filter. Two folded paper guides help with the basics of connectivity, and there’s more on AVM’s website. AVM…

Yamaha YAS-207 Sound Bar review

With so many entry-level soundbars these days it’s difficult to make a decision about which one to buy. From virtual surround and Google Cast connectivity to consider, and big decisions to make like whether you want a subwoofer or not, it can be hard to pick a good piece of audio equipment out from the crowd.  Light on features and rather bland to look at, the Yamaha YAS-207 won’t fit every home theatre. But for those with a limited budget…

Zoho Books Review & Rating

You may not be familiar with Zoho Books, but if you’re running a small business, you definitely should be. The site assembles the lion’s share of financial tools needed by today’s small businesses; the only piece missing is payroll, which the company plans to start rolling out by the end of 2017. Zoho Books’ usability, flexibility, and depth in standard bookkeeping areas, such as sales and purchases, time- and project-tracking, and inventory management, equal—and sometimes surpass—what is offered by competing…

Echogear Outlet Shelf review: A brilliant, if not always practical, shelving idea

Echogear apparently thinks the axiom “For everything, there is a purpose” should be “For everything there are two purposes.” The company’s Outlet Shelf is a working example. Why should an electrical outlet just supply electricity? Why not wrap a shelf around it to hold the thing you’re supplying electricity to? It’s a genius idea, even if it’s not quite as practical as the company’s photographs make it look. I say that because Echogear shows all kinds of gadgets plugged into…
