After Google bought Motorola we were all wondering what exactly would come out of the acquisition, and now things are starting to take shape.

Huawei Ascend P6 Review

The Huawei Ascend P6 was inspired by beauty according to the Chinese company, and is currently holding the crown for the "world's thinnest smartphone" on the market coming in at just 6.18mm thin.

Moto X Review

This week we're delivering an extended stay with the Moto X, a device presented by Motorola as the current sweet spot in the center of price, usability, and customizability.

Chromecast Review: Easy to setup and easy to use, but will it stick around

Google announced the Chromecast back on July 24th and unlike some other device announcements, these became available for purchase that same day.

The Chromecast dongle availability quickly dwindled and sale prices jumped on sites such as eBay. The question we have though; Will the Chromecast excitement last or will this be another quickly passing fad.
