Review: The Netatmo Smart Video Doorbell ticks three boxes for me

There’s been one rather glaring omission in our smart home setup: a doorbell cam. That’s because I was waiting for three boxes to be ticked, and the Netatmo Smart Video Doorbell ticks all of them. First, HomeKit compatibility. For me, that’s pretty much non-negotiable when it comes to any smart home kit. The benefits of […]

Review: ‘Becoming Steve Jobs’ depicts a late-maturing iCEO with a growing heart and softened edges

Several years after Steve Jobs’ untimely death, journalists — particularly ones who previously interviewed or covered Jobs — are still combing their archives for underreported facts or quotes that might justify new books on Apple’s enigmatic CEO. Naturally, the overlap with earlier works is significant, as new authors repeatedly acknowledge leaning on Michael Moritz’s (Return to) The Little Kingdom and Owen Linzmayer’s Apple […]

Apple’s publication of a $199/$299 design book raised quite a few eyebrows, some questioning the price, others considering it self-indulgent (especially given all the promo activity), yet others wondering whether this might be Jony Ive’s swansong. We got a hands-on look at the book in a recent video, and I had my own look in […]

Review: Duet, the app that turns your iPad into a Lightning-connected Mac monitor

I’m a big-screen fan. It’s the reason my primary Mac is still a 17-inch MacBook Pro, and why I have that hooked up to a 27-inch Apple Thunderbolt Display when I’m in my home office. When travelling, though, I have fewer pixels to play with. Sure, I could get a 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro, but […]

Hands-on: Wacom’s Cintiq 16 tablet from the perspective of an iPad Pro user

Less than a decade ago, a desktop drawing tablet was an essential tool for just about every professional digital artist.

Review: PhraseExpress is TextExpander without the subscription

PhraseExpress is a Mac app that does the same thing as TextExpander, which I reviewed back in 2017. Both apps can be thought of as autocorrect on steroids. You type a macro shortcut of your choice, and the app replaces it with a full block of text – with can be multiple paragraphs. TextExpander has […]

Review: Flic 2 HomeKit-compatible smart buttons are kind of addictive

When I saw that Flic HomeKit-compatible smart buttons were available, I had to take them for a spin. Second-generation Flic smart home buttons now have HomeKit compatibility, along with multi-color LEDs to indicate the status of the device they control. The original Flic buttons from Shortcut Labs could control a reasonably wide range of devices […]
