Nanit Plus Review & Rating – Technology Review Article

We liked the original Nanit Sleep System a lot, but not enough for it to unseat our Editors’ Choice for baby monitors, the $180 iBaby Monitor M6S. The new Nanit Plus addresses our issues with the original, like the lack of two-way audio, and brings new, incredibly useful features like breathing monitoring in addition to the sleep tracking offered by the original. It’s still expensive at $299, but delivers a wealth of data you can’t really put a price on,…

SimpliSafe Smart Lock review: The ultra-simple alarm system gets its own companion smart lock – Technology Review Article

While SimpliSafe prides itself on its ultra-simple setup and alarm management—its alarm system sets up in minutes and doesn’t even require an app—the optimist in me wondered how it would fare after adding a smart lock to its collection. Notoriously unfriendly in both setup and use, the smart lock industry has made only baby steps toward usability since its advent a few years ago. Would SimpliSafe be the company that kickstarts the concept of simplicity in this business? The answer…

Roku Ultra (2019) review: It’s all about the buttons – Technology Review Article

How much do you value a few extra buttons? That’s the main question you must ask yourself when deciding between the 2019 Roku Ultra and cheaper Roku streamers. At $100, the Ultra is by far the most expensive Roku player, and it remains the only one with both a USB port for external drives and an ethernet jack for wired connectivity. This year, the Ultra also has a new remote, which for the first time includes a volume mute button…

Amazon Fire TV Cube Review: The hands-free Alexa streamer comes to the UK – Technology Review Article

The Fire TV Cube has been available in the US for a while now, so it’s good news it can now be bought in the UK. What is it? It’s an Amazon Fire TV – a media streamer – with a built-in Amazon Echo, a smart speaker. The easiest way to describe it is as my seven-year-old daughter did: “Oh wow, you’ve put Alexa on the TV”. The Fire TV Cube is much like the Fire TV 4K, but with…

Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ Review & Rating – Technology Review Article

There’s a lot going on with the Galaxy Note 10+ ($1,099.99 and up), Samsung’s biggest phone. There always is; the Note line is the epitome of Samsung’s technology. It’s where the company piles all of its features in, with price and size being no object. And I admire it, but I find it hard to love. A lot of this comes down to how many phones Samsung’s been slinging out this year with similar features, as well as my own…
