Ooma Butterfleye review: This security camera keeps recording without AC power or an internet connection

For all their strengths, Wi-Fi security cameras have a couple points of potential failure: their AC power supply and their internet connection. If either goes down, either due to a natural occurrence or an enterprising burglar cutting them off, the end result is the same: the camera stops recording video, and you lose potential forensic evidence. The Ooma Butterfleye mitigates both of these risks. It includes an internal battery that will keep the camera running for two to four weeks…

Mint review: Popular app focuses on the big financial picture

Updated August 6, 2018: Mint has undergone a couple of changes since we last reviewed it, though it retains the same overall score. Most critically, its bill-pay feature was discontinued as of June 30. You’re no longer able to to pay your bills through Mint, but you can still track them, set reminders, and mark them as paid. Also, a new credit utilization ratio feature has been added to the Mint mobile app. Located on the Overview tab under the Upcoming…

Best baby monitors of 2018

Video baby monitors have a singular purpose: to bring parents, particularly nervous new ones, peace of mind. By transmitting audio and video, they allow moms and dads to keep eyes and ears on their snoozing little ones, so they can get things done or just get a good night’s sleep. But these nursery essentials can be as fussy as the babies they keep tabs on. And like virtually every other household appliance, they are growing increasingly more capable and complex.…

Note 9 vs Galaxy S9: What’s The Difference?

Note 9 vs Galaxy S9 The Galaxy S9 phones have been around for a while now and while they’re two of the best around, Samsung has a new flagship smartphone for you. It’s not the S10 just yet, but the Galaxy Note 9. It’s unusual for a firm to have two different ranges of flagship handsets but the S and Note series offer distinct features. Here we compare the devices to explain how they match up and help you decide which…

Samsung Galaxy Watch hands on review

The Samsung Galaxy Watch isn’t called the Gear S4, but it acts a lot like a sequel to the Gear Sport, judging from our brief hands-on time with the smartwatch. It’s designed to look and feel like a real watch, yet help you stay fit and connected. It does that while also adding Bixby Voice, new watch faces, and better battery life. We tried on both the larger and smaller Galaxy Watch sizes at the Note 9 launch event. The…

First Alert Onelink Safe & Sound review: Alexa in a smoke detector? It’s an inspired, if expensive, idea

Embed Amazon’s Alexa in a smoke/carbon-monoxide detector? The concept might sound strange at first, but trust me, it’s a great idea well executed in the First Alert Onelink Safe & Sound. Think about it: You have a smoke detector in every room, and each one contains a loudspeaker, optimally mounted on the ceiling or high up on the wall. Add a mic, a Wi-Fi connection, and a digital assistant, and instead of behaving like a lifeless barnacle unless smoke or…

Polk Audio Command Bar soundbar review: Good sound, with Alexa at your service

To answer the question posed in the subhed, no, Polk didn’t create the Command Bar by taking a hole saw to the middle of its chassis and dropping an Amazon Echo Dot in there. But the feature is unquestionably designed to look like that, and this soundbar does support Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant. Soundbars are hot these days, and they run the gamut from sub-$100 cheapies to the ludicrously priced, but wow-it’s-impressive Creative X-Fi Sonic Carrier. Polk is going after…

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 vs Note 8: What’s the Difference?

Alldocube KNote 5 tablet hands on: A solid well-performing Intel tablet Review

The Alldocube KNote 5 is a nice looking mid-range 2-in-1 tablet with an optional keyboard that was released to market in April 2018. This is the first tablet I have had a chance to look at from Alldocube, a brand owned by Shenzhen Alldocube Technology and Science Co. This Chinese manufacturer formed in 2004 which produces Android tablets, PCs, and MP3 players. I like the look and feel of the KNote 5. Its external dimensions are 289 x 180 mm…

Webs.com review | TechRadar

Launched as Freewebs.com back in 2001, Webs.com is a simple drag-and-drop website builder, now owned by the printing and marketing giant, Vistaprint. If you’re familiar with Vistaprint, you might know the company already has a website builder on its own site (we review it here), but this is entirely separate from Webs.com. Pricing, features, editor and everything else are all very different. Webs.com presents its service better than most, with pages displaying all of its templates, a video explaining the…

Eufy RoboVac 11s review: Our favorite budget robot vacuum gets an upgrade

We couldn’t imagine there was much room to improve the Eufy RoboVac 11 when we selected it as our favorite budget robot vacuum. It was one of the simplest, smallest, and most affordable models available. But the RoboVac 11s updates it with an even smaller profile and more powerful cleaning while keeping the price low. The 11s has the same black finish and tempered-glass top as its predecessor, but it’s slightly smaller: It’s been scaled down to 12.8 inches in…
