This year has been all about 4K televisions. CES 2016 was loaded with new releases from high-end and budget brands. Now, Sony has entered the fray with an incredibly sexy new line of Ultra HDTVs called the Z Series. With a luxury design and top-of-the-line specs, it’s clear that the Japanese brand is leaving little to chance. The question is, will it be enough to unseat LG’s popular OLED sets from atop the HDTV pecking order? More below…

Modern smartphones are awesome for taking photos and videos, but I still prefer to use a standalone camera when I’m working.
I’ve had all sorts of cameras in past, most of them of the DLSR or mirrorless variety. The common thread with all of my past standalone cameras was that they were always much larger than the average smartphone.
After owning a phone with a camera for the last 10 years, I desired a standalone camera that featured similar portability. There are lots of pocketable point-and-shoots available on the market, but none of them check off as many bullet-points and feature the visual fidelity of Sony’s RX100 IV.
Sony’s venerable RX100 is legendary for the amount of features that it manages to jam inside of such a small form factor, and the latest model doesn’t disappoint. expand full story

DJI has long owned the consumer drone space as the go-to for high-quality quadcopters. As this category’s popularity has steeply risen over the last few years, we’ve seen more competitors enter this space. The latest of which is the Teal Drone. Its new production model sports some of the fastest consumer-grade speeds that we’ve seen, promising to hit 70MPH. For comparison, the new Phantom 4 tops out at just over 45MPH in its sport mode. So does DJI have a new competitor?
