I’ve long been an advocate for making music on the Apple iPad – to me it has been a key reason to always have one by my side. But while it is a great device to allow for chaining up synthesizers and recording occasional audio one track at a time, that has been pretty much the end – until now.

Last year we took a look at the MateBook X Pro, Huawei’s answer to the MacBook Pro for PC users. Now Huawei is taking on the MacBook Air with their Huawei MateBook 13. You’ll be intrigued by its speed, build quality, comfortable keyboard and touchpad, and the narrow bezels on the touchscreen. But there’s even more to like.
The most painful thing about wearing a Wear OS smartwatch is that at best (and with few exceptions), you can expect maybe a day and a half of battery life.

Tablets went from being the next big thing in computing to almost an afterthought. Phones have gotten bigger, computers have gotten smaller and even picked up touchscreens, so it means the humble tablet has to work even harder to stand out.

Sure, it’s pricey, but this is one beautiful and comfortable band.
Half my household has really enjoyed testing the Monster Illuminessence lighting kits the last few weeks. The new Monster fan enjoyed the intuitiveness of the remotes, the tremendous number of flashing patterns, and of course, the color options. I found them to be a fun novelty more than a permanent lighting choice, but I’m also not 5 like my other tester…

Basically, it’s nearly perfect.
