I still haven't forgotten about LaptopMemo, don't worry.
Autumn has arrived in New York City, I turned 20-years-old, and I’m still reviewing gadgets and reporting on technology. So, what’s new? Well, all the select gadgets and products that I’ve used during the past month-and-a-half. Thankfully, I stopped my habit of buying Adidas NMD shoes (lol), while also making good use of a 17-inch gaming laptop with an Intel Kaby Lake processor…

The first of a monthly overview of stuff I'm testing. This is how I'll keep LaptopMemo relatively fresh!

And thank you to all the readers (and PR reps) over the past few years. None of this would be possible without you. ;)
Welcome, reader. As some of you may know, I started writing at TechCrunch. In short, it’s pretty awesome, especially since I’ve been writing about technology for nearly seven years (as of this post), starting when I was just 12-years-old. Now I’m 19, in my first year of college. Smart work does equate positive results. It’s been a long, incredible journey…

these are really nice, no joke. 
I don’t normally review earphones, but when I do, they have to be close to the experience of their more powerful, larger counterparts: headphones. Otherwise, I despise them. My main gripe with the category of earbuds — despite their portability and ease-of-use — is that they’re usually wired and do not even come close to the audio experience of using headphones. But, Master…

It’s always nice when an app gets updated to fall in line with the overarching design formula of the mobile operating system that it runs on. In this case, Facebook Messenger, which is used by millions, got the Material Design treatment for Android. Thus, the app hasn’t been dramatically changed, but it codes look nicer — and that’s important, too.…

It's finally out!
I am late with the monthly recap, as a result of being busy (and lazy). But, by compiling July and August picks of the gear litter into one post is better than not doing it at all. However, I still need to get these posts done on-time. Anyways, here is the July-August Stef Select: it’s rather diverse. On a personal affairs note,…

I'm so late with this, lol. July is definitely going to be awesome.
This one is very late — bear with me, I’m still tweaking this monthly gear roundup — but here’s my picks for the months of May and June. This gear guide is also getting closet to becoming a sort of lifestyle roundup for things I’m doing in SoHo and generally, around New York City. That however, will probably start happening…

What a phone. 
The Samsung Galaxy S7, already? Oh, it’s very real and it’s very fast. But most importantly, it takes the formula seen with the last generation, and instead of completely revamping, makes the necessary tweaks to give a better overall experience. Samsung hasn’t really done that before: every incarnation of the Galaxy S has been a major physical or internal improvement;…

The camera of (expensive)  wet dreams. 
This is only the second time I’ve had a Leica camera in my possession for a review — the first time, I reviewed the Q, a masterpiece of a fixed-lens camera. Well, the German camera manufacturer of great esteem has decided to pursue the pro photography market, with another full-frame mirrorless camera, but with some additional touches that put it…

want one, thanks. 
Another day, another DJI drone — maybe even one that famed YouTuber and creator Casey Neistat can control? The Phantom 4 is the latest and greatest attempt at there being a consumer/pro level drone that has fully autonomous abilities. Two new cameras on the front, two on the bottom, two belly-mounted Ultrasonic sensors, with the main camera — this setup…
