Lylux cordless and bladeless hair dryer review

We're seeing a steady stream of new products for personal and home use that all use the "smart" qualifier to indicate how intelligent they are because they connect to the Internet.

That's the simple joy that the Lylux Hair Dryer is promising by putting together bladeless fans, cordless operation, and smart sensors to make drying hair even less of a hassle.

AirPods Max iFixit teardown discovers the reason for the price tag

AirPods Max iFixit teardown discovers the reason for the price tag

As always, Apple launched the AirPods Max with a premium price tag that proved to be controversial even among fans of the company. And as always, too, that price tag is being justified by appeals to sound quality as well as design. Now, iFixit has finally concluded its month-long investigation of the headphones and, despite the self-repair experts' opinion of most Apple products, may have found points that at least justify that $550 figure to some extent.

Galaxy Buds Pro gets an update even before it launches

All or at least eyes were on Samsung last week, unsurprisingly, especially on its new Galaxy S21 series with admittedly tempting price tags. Those weren't the only products the company announced, though, and the Galaxy Buds Pro definitely deserved just as much attention, especially for the value that it offers for its price. It's not perfect, of course, but fortunately, some of its warts can be easily addressed by software updates, just like the one that will be ready for new owners when they power up the buds for the first time.

Belkin recalls WIZ003 Portable Wireless Charger sold on Apple store

Belkin recalls WIZ003 Portable Wireless Charger sold on Apple store

Belkin is a trusted brand when it comes to accessories for smartphones and tablets to the point that even Apple carries some of its products on its own store. That, however, doesn't mean it is exempt from having problems, some of which can lead to disastrous accidents if not immediately addressed. That seems to be the case here with one of its wireless chargers, a special one that it launched last year and was carried by Apple as well, that is now being recalled immediately due to serious safety hazards.

A few months back, it also took jabs at the new MagSafe wireless charger's limits, both in charging output and placement, with its Wireless Charger Trio. According to a fresh new leak, Samsung will continue that tradition this week, though in a more toned-down manner.
