Get me my parachute pants and a Zork disk!
In the 21st century, we have smartphones and flat panel TVs, but many gadgets from the 1980s provided better flexibility, security and usability.

Because what you really need is a watch asking you how happy you are every single hour.
The Happiness app from Pebble prompts you every hour so it can track your mood and energy level over time.

The $99 Gole1 packs a quad-core Atom CPU, a tiny 5-inch screen and a plethora of ports into a tiny aluminum chassis..

After spending Sunday going from store to store to find a full-size DisplayPort to HDMI adapter, I can tell you that you need to know your ports. http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/port-and-adapter-guide
Here's a list of laptop, desktop, tablet and phone ports, along with the type and cost of adapters you'll need to use if you don't have them on board.

Lenovo has two, lightweight 14-inch ThinkPads with similar specs. We compare their designs, screens, keyboard and more to help you choose the right one.

Another question: which do you prefer, an image (or screen) with more vibrant color or one with duller, but more true-to-life color?

From a epistemological POV, you could argue that reality is a perspective so why not just have the more vibrant and exciting colors? Even in "real life," you are only seeing things from a particular perspective.

So here's a question for you: Do you care how good your webcam is? We're reviewing external webcams here and I'm arguing that everyone who does any video calling should get one.

The $60 Logitech C920, for example, is orders of magnitude better than the best built-in cam, with wider viewing angles, sharper images and better color. If you want to have more than one person on the call or show what's next to you, you'll need those viewing angles too.

Would you wear this PC backpack to play Vive without tripping over a wire? http://www.tomsguide.com/us/zotac-backpack-pc-hands-on,news-22764.html
This 11-pound desktop PC in a bag can power an HTC Vive while you wear it on your back, preventing you from dragging the headset's wire around while you play.

The Precision crew did an extremely thorough inspection on the home my wife and I are buying. Owner Hank Jaworowski sent two different people who gave us a very-detailed report with pictures of everything in less than 24 hours, allowing us to move forward with our home purchase with confidence. Precision also has been great in offering free advice after the inspection was over and giving us a free book on how to deal with contractors. We were very satisfied with the thoroughness and quality of the inspection and the friendly, helpful advice we got from the inspectors. They gave us great peace of mind and I would recommend them to anyone buying a home on Long Island.
