One of the MWC announcements that most captured my attention was for the new Lenovo Tab V7. An affordable 7” tablet, the Tab V7 is ideal for someone who doesn’t want the expense, or the juggling act, of carrying a phone and a tablet. It blurs the line between the two categories.
Lenovo has high-end business computers covered, but they create some excellent consumer devices as well. Their IdeaPad line is for everyday computing, and the new lineup covers everything you could possibly want, from simple to powerful to all-in-one devices.

If you’re a fan of physical keyboards, you’ve no doubt been keeping up with the newest BlackBerrys. We’ve reviewed the KEYone and the KEY2, but they were both quite businesslike. The new BlackBerry KEY2 Red Edition, however, looks sporty, fun, and it has updated features!
If you read my Huawei MateBook 13 review, you’ll know that I am a huge fan of the 3:2 aspect ratio on a laptop’s screen. If you are, too (or even if you’re just curious about it), you’ll want to check out the updated MateBook X Pro and the brand new MateBook 14.
At MWC 2019, if you didn’t bring a folding screen of some kind to show the press, then you brought a knife to a gunfight! Huawei brought a big gun, however, and the new Huawei Mate X is a spectacular example of a folding screen done right.
Once upon a time, Samsung’s Galaxy line was seen as a copy of the iPhone; there were even multiple lawsuits between the two companies over it.

Rec Tec is turning up the heat in 2019 with four new grills that promise to enhance your outdoor cooks.

Some months ago I had the opportunity to review the Honor View 10 smartphone. I was impressed with pretty much every aspect of the device and even more impressed by its price which brings it in at about half of what you pay for a new iPhone. Honor has done some amazing things with even lower cost devices, and today we’re looking at the Honor 8X.
I am utterly and completely fascinated by the saga of Theranos.

Now ABC has waded into the discussion with a podcast expanding on their research on Theranos for an episode of Nightline!

I took a survival class once that said to remember the rule of 3’s: 3 minutes without air, 3 days without water, 3 weeks without food. Next to breathing, water is incredibly important and if you’re spending any time outside or where you can’t access fresh water, you need a plan, and that’s where LifeSaver products can help.
