TCL turned heads and won hearts with their 10-series smartphones last year, and they’re growing the family with the new TCL 20 series phones. They’re taking everything great about the 10 and doubling it; from the flagship TCL 20 Pro 5G to the TCL 20S and the TCL 20SE, there’s something for everyone to love.
In a lot of ways, I came of age in a weird in-between generation. I’m on the cusp of the Generation X to Millennial transition. And as a child of the ’80s, I’m part of the generation of LGBT folks who grew up aware that AIDS was a scary pandemic, but after the age where we would have seen the worst of the horrors firsthand. But we all grew up being warned about it, and I knew many people who started taking PrEP as soon as they could afford it.
July 4th is when we celebrate our awesome country and spend time with friends and family. Good eats, good drinks, and a good time outdoors are what we most like to partake in. With that in mind, here are a few cool products that will spice up your July 4th party plans.
The folks at TCL make excellent devices. We’ve been impressed in the past by their phones and televisions, and they’re kicking things to the next level at MWC with new phones, new software, and some very cool NXTWEAR G immersive video glasses!
The world is slowly going back to some form of normal, but whether you’re working from home or back in the office, you’re probably looking to upgrade your tech. Lenovo has your back, with a slew of new updates for their powerful ThinkPads and a new 34″ ThinkVision P34w monitor with a curved display!
If you’re looking for a relatively inexpensive 5G-capable smartphone, you might want to check out the OnePlus Nord N200 5G that’s just been announced. Priced at $239.99 in the US, it’s a great value.
Nomad is on a roll this spring and announcing one new product after another. Today, there are three new premium Nomad leather wallets to look at as well as a brand new product they call “Card for AirTag.” Each wallet has a different card capacity, so there’s sure to be one that’s just right for you. Card for AirTag then takes them to the next level.
When we first met Nomad, they were a startup with one cool but simple accessory for the iPhone. In the years since, their catalog has grown exponentially and, with it, our appreciation of their design sense and commitment to creating quality products. Their newest offerings include a Moment Rugged Case for the iPhone 12 Series and Rugged Cases for the Pixel Buds A-Series.
Eufy Security has just announced a host of new outdoor cameras, many of which offer 8GB on-device storage. The new devices include the eufy Security SoloCam E20 & SoloCam E40, the eufy Security SoloCam L20 & SoloCam L40, the solar-powered eufy Security SoloCam S40, and the eufy Floodlight Cam 2 Pro. Read on to see the details on these new security cameras and what they have to offer.
Over 40% of the bits in the world are stored on Western Digital products, which is insane when you think about it, but here we are. Just about everything that we use or do utilizes some form of storage, and Western Digital is the global leader in both hard drives and SSDs. During the Western Digital Flash Perspective Event today, they shared some exciting announcements that give us a glimpse at how Western Digital will continue creating environments for our data to thrive.
The WaterField Hip Sling Bag Collection is yet another product designed based upon input from customers. This “community-designed” collection is perfect now that the summer heat has arrived. Available in two sizes, it can be used as either a hip bag or as a sling bag. I don’t see using it as a hip bag (AKA fanny pack), but I do love a good sling.
I’m back to wearing my Apple Watch daily; most days, it is sporting either the Nomad Titanium band I reviewed some time ago or the Nomad Active Strap Pro I recently reviewed. Adding to their Apple Watch band options, Nomad has just announced a new line of Steel and Titanium bands; they look great, and I can’t wait to try them!
Not everyone needs or wants a full-fledged smartphone, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for a completely dumb phone, either. The new 4G Nokia 2729 V Flip is perfect for those who love the pocketability of the classic flip feature phone but also want smart features like an external notification screen, a 4G hotspot, built-in Google Assistant, and more.
One of the many things inadvertently learned during the last year has been that working remotely isn’t always as easy or as efficient as it should be. Lenovo Go, a new Lenovo sub-brand, was designed with a hybrid workforce in mind; they want to provide needed tools for better mobile productivity. Their first two products are the 65W 20,000mAh Lenovo Go USB-C Laptop Power Bank and the Lenovo Go Wireless Multi-Device Mouse.
Leave it to Apple to release a $29 tracker accessory with no native way to affix it to the item you want to track. For that, you need to spend at least $29 more on Apple’s AirTag Loop. And while the Loop holds the AirTag, it does nothing to protect it. Thankfully, there is now a line of Nomad AirTag Accessories.
Lenovo Legion might sound like a branch of the robot uprising, but it’s actually Lenovo‘s gaming arm. They combine the reliability and power you already expect from Lenovo with the fun of gaming!
The Multo by CookingPal may look like an ordinary food processor, but it is actually an “intelligent, autonomous cooking system that makes delicious meals materialize with minimal effort.”
It feels like we’re slowly emerging into a sense of new normal, with the opportunity to get out and emerge into the world again finally. And like the flowers blooming, and the weather getting warmer…new Dell and Alienware computers are also springing into life!
The Invoxia Cellular GPS Tracker is a standalone GPS tracker for anything from cars and motorcycles to bags, valuables, and even people. Invoxia’s tracker is “one of the first trackers to be compatible with the LTE-M update of 4G cellular networks” and is usable anywhere across the United States through 4G networks that support LTE-M.
Have you ever wished that your laptop was more like your smartphone — truly portable, always connected, and with enough battery life to get you through a full day? That’s the promise being made at today’s Unpacked event where the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro series was introduced.
For over a year, my office has been here at home. Now, though, I’m preparing to return to the office part-time in the next few weeks. Many days that means carrying MacBook and an iPad. Since each serves a different purpose, thankfully, the new WaterField Double-Take iPad + MacBook Sleeve is the perfect solution!
