AT CES 2017, the Lenovo Legion Has Got Game

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Lenovo. All opinions are mine. Judie reviewed the Android version of the Lenovo Yoga Book last month and loved it. She just finished using it while covering CES 2017 and has enjoyed it so much that I just ordered one. That, however, is not the only Lenovo product worthy of note.


Lenovo Has Big Announcements Ahead of CES 2017

Lenovo is making their presence felt right before the 2017 Consumer Electronic Show by announcing that they are updating their popular ThinkPad lineup. Including the new ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3, Type C docks and ThinkVision displays, there are nine laptop announcements as well as more from their flagship X1 series.


Lenovo Yoga Book: A Versatile and Unique Android Hybrid

I’ve had the 12.9″ iPad Pro since it came out, and while there are things I absolutely love about using a larger tablet, lugging it around isn’t one of them. Add on a detachable keyboard or case, and it suddenly weighs as much or more than a Macbook. For portability and features, the Lenovo Yoga Book 2-in-1 is downright attractive.



The Moto Z Droid: Mods Make It Yours

There has been quite a bit of excitement around the idea of modular phones this year; LG’s G5 introduced their take on modules with their “Friends” collection, and Moto has taken it a step further with their Moto Mods for the Moto Z line. Let’s take a look …


The Tech Holy Wars Need to Stop

Unless you were buried under a rock you know there was an Apple event this week and the debates about who is better have reared their head yet again. Who did this first. Who did what first. I won’t ever buy a phone without X. Most of them are complete crap. The tech holy wars need to stop.


A Force to Be Reckoned with: Moto Z Force Droid Edition Review

I have had my Nexus 6 for over a year, and while it was still good, I really like the fingerprint reader on my work’s iPhone and wanted a MicroSD card. So I upgraded to a Moto Z Force Droid Edition  from Verizon. Is it a worthy replacement to my trusty Nexus 6? So far, it has exceeded my expectations!




Skyroam Global WiFi Hotspot: Perfect for World Travelers

Let’s say that you go to a foreign country, and you’ll need data. What do you do? You could find a cell provider and buy a local SIM, but that takes time and requires registering with your passport. At best, you’ll get a local SIM with a hard data cap, or you could arrive prepared with a Skyroam Global WiFi…


Lenovo Shines with Travel Ready Convertible Laptops and a Detachable Tablet

Today Lenovo is introducing two new convertible Windows 10 PCs, the YOGA 51o and the YOGA 710, along with the affordable ideapad MIIX 310 a 2-in-1 detachable tablet. All of the new devices sport better battery life, versatility, and portability. YOGA 510 14″ and 15″ The YOGA 510 14″ and 15″ boast more than 50% improved battery life. The 510…


Get More out of Your Laptop Charger with the Zolt Charger Plus

Apple’s MacBook MagSafe Charger is big, clunky, and gets in the way. From the large white cube, down to the all-white cable being just an eyesore from across the room, I wanted a bit more, so when Zolt sent me over their Zolt Laptop Charger Plus, I knew I’d never use the charger that came with my MacBook Air again.


Motorola Brand to Fade, Survived by Moto and Vibe

News today from CES that Lenovo plans to phase out the Motorola brand during 2016. We had to know this day was coming ever since Motorola was sold by Google to Lenovo in 2014. Fear not though, the Moto branding will live on for higher-end phones while Lenovo will use the Vibe brand for the cheap stuff.


Holiday Gift Ideas for Photographers

One of my tech oriented hobbies is photography. I almost always have at least one other camera with me be it my Nikon D3300, a point and shoot or a Kodak ZI8 video camera. So other than a camera, here’s a list of ideas for that photog on your list.



Does HTC Have a Future?

HTC is not doing well. Their stock is trading badly right now, and their reputation as a top-tier smartphone company is under a great deal of pressure. The HTC One M9 landed with a whimper rather than a bang, and they had to delay their Grip fitness band. So does HTC have a future?


Lenovo Pocket Projector Turns Any Wall into a 110” Display

Picture a pocket-sized projector that can go with you anywhere, and imagine being able to give a presentation or watch a movie projected from it on any wall. If you have the new Lenovo Pocket Projector, you can fit all of these capabilities into the palm of your hand.


2014 Smartphone Sales: iOS/Android Dominate, Blackberry & Windows Disappear

In an unsurprising announcement, IDC revealed their latest smartphone sales research indication that iOS and Android accounted for more than 96% of smartphones sold worldwide for both the fourth quarter and for the full year of 2014. Everyone else? Once again they were left scrambling for table scraps – not just in sales but in profits as well!


Leef iBRIDGE Review: Brings Well Designed External Storage to iOS Devices

Judie wrote about the Leef iBRIDGE late last year, and at CES they provided us with a review sample to check out. I love the Leef Bridge USB 3.0 storage solution for Android, and was excited to check out the new iOS external solution. With an odd shape and requiring a special app, it still impresses and has become essential!


Tablet Market Shrank in 2014, Here are Some Possible Reasons Why

Last week we learned iPad sales declined … again. It was another sign of a shift in the tablet market different from the smartphone market. Now we hear from the IDC that the broader tablet market shrank with both Apple and Samsung along with ASUS and Amazon taking large hits and only Lenovo and ‘others’ gaining share. We asked ‘why’?


Lenovo Brings a Huge Consumer Lineup to CES

Lenovo has been on fire the last few years with some amazing consumer offerings. They’re expanding even further this year at CES, announcing 10 new devices, from YOGA tablets and laptops to ultraportables, smartphones, and even a smartwatch/fitness tracker. You can check out their full lineup at their CES 2015 site, but here are a few of my favorites!
