My Gear VR for Galaxy S6 Review. I got a little queasy at times but still loved flying a jetpack. http://www.tomsguide.com/us/gear-vr-galaxy-s6,review-2917.html
The Gear VR Innovator Edition for the Galaxy S6 delivers jaw-droppingly immersive games and entertainment for a reasonable price.

The new #inflategate. I think everyone who writes, edits or reads reviews should read this.
Professional product reviews graded on a too-kind curve will only push more people into the arms of Amazon and crowdsourced review sites.

I think the public is more curious than threatened by self-driving cars. But that could change. 
A small fleet of Google prototype vehicles is leaving the test track and hitting the public streets of Mountain View, Calif. this summer.

Unbox Therapy gives Galaxy S6 the unboxing treatment it deserves, complete with snazzy skin option I hadn't seen. 
The Galaxy S6 is the hottest Android phone of the year, and our friend at Unbox Therapy gives Samsung's flagship the close inspection it deserves.

No, it's not fanboy-ism, it's that darn ecosystem. http://www.tomsguide.com/us/case-against-galaxy-s6,news-20752.html
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is better in almost every way than the iPhone, but I still can't bring myself to make the switch.

My Galaxy S6 Edge Review http://www.tomsguide.com/us/samsung-galaxy-s6-edge,review-2711.html Tried a new format. Check it out and tell me what you think. Of the phone too :-)
While pricey, the Galaxy S6 Edge sports a sexier design than the iPhone 6, awesome front and back cameras and a gorgeous display.

Soon we'll all communicate via our thoughts. Okay, maybe not soon. 
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed during a Q&A that he envisions people wearing AR glasses while keeping their phones in their pockets.

It scares me that the world's least empathetic CEO thinks his team of autistics can invoke telepathy.

Do you think ad blocking is stealing? Lots of interesting comments on this one.
Like a number of extensions, a new Android web browser blocks Internet advertising. However, filtering out ads is wrong and puts millions of jobs in jeopardy.

Galaxy S6 vs S6 Edge. Here's why the Edge wins in my book.
The Galaxy S6 Edge costs at least $100 more than the Galaxy S6, but it's worth the premium based on our comparison.

My 12-inch Retina MacBook Review. The laptop of tomorrow. 
The new MacBook is a fantastically light and compact laptop that delivers a rich display, long battery life and surprisingly strong ergonomics, but it needs more ports.

My in-depth iPhone 6 vs Galaxy S6 face-off. It's not even close.
The Galaxy S6 takes on Apple's iPhone 6 in a multi-round battle - and wins by a lot.

My analysis on the new MacBook. You get a dongle! And you get a dongle!
Apple's newest notebook uses a single USB Type-C connector for power and charging. That's good for the future, but requires lots of dongles in the present.
