What to do when you feel lost in ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the most open-ended game in the series since the original Legend of Zelda over 20 years ago.

Logitech Z337 with Bluetooth review

With so many wireless speaker options out there, the lowly PC speaker seems like something of an anachronism. On the one hand, investing in a set of PC speakers, all the way up to full surround-sound 7.1 setups, still makes sense for gamers and maybe video buffs who use their PCs for watching movies and TV. On the other hand, if you’re primarily worried about playing the usual PC sounds, along with a fair amount of music, then a portable Bl...

The ProTruly Darling might just be the weirdest phone you’ve ever seen

This ain’t your grandma’s phone. Heck, this ain’t even your phone. Rather, the Darling smartphone from ProTruly is either the phone of the future, or a bizarre idea that will flop and fade. Heralded as the first smartphone with a built-in 360-degree camera, the Darling certainly seems to have locked down a recipe for adoration from photo enthusiasts. But only the photo enthusiasts who do not mind an almost absurdly giant phone. You see, hav...
