Read in Browser

March 9, 2023

The rise of foldable devices has been one of the more interesting tech stories to watch play out over the last several years. Part of that story is the perpetual rumor mill about Google getting into the market with a foldable Pixel. But do those rumors really need to become a reality? Andrew doesn’t think so. In fact, in our top story, he details all the reasons that Google should stay out of the foldable space. From stiff competition in the market to Google’s hardware durability, how expensive it would be, and more, there are plenty of good reasons for Google to continue sitting this one out.

Why the Heck Is Amazon Selling These Fake 16 Terabyte Portable SSD Drives?

When it comes to portable hard drives, bigger is usually better. You want lots of space for photos, videos, or anything else. So when Amazon offers a 16TB external SSD hard drive for under $100, that sounds perfect. It would be if it weren’t a giant scam. I know because I bought one and tore it apart. Read More »

STUFF WE LIKE This Emergency Flashlight Runs on Water
This Emergency Flashlight Runs on Water

Being prepared in case of an emergency is always a good idea. That’s why you’ll love this little water-powered emergency flashlight 3-pack by Hydralight. Yes, all you do is remove the seal on the bottom, dip the gadget in water for 20 seconds, and you’ll have a usable flashlight for hours on end.

It runs on water-activated cell technology, has two LEDs, and an on/off switch, so it’ll last longer. And while it’s technically a “one-time-use” flashlight, each Hydralight can run for about 72 hours total. You’ll need to re-dip it in water to activate the cell between uses, but eventually, it’ll stop working. This is perfect for a go-bag, hiking, camping, and more.
