I've used an iPod Classic as my on-the-go music player for years, while I was waiting for something better. Sure, Astell & Kern has two perfectly fine players, the $699 AK100 and the $1,299 AK120, but FiiO smashed the high-resolution music player price barrier with the X3, which lists for $299, but which sells for $200 on Amazon and most other online retail sites.

Yelp is one of the handiest smartphone apps ever.
During a recent trip to northern California, I used it to find restaurants in Santa Rosa -- places I would have missed without it, and places I ended up absolutely loving. (Until next time, Flavor Bistro.)

The 13-inch ultrabook has defined itself as the sweet spot for ultrathin and compact laptops that help you do everything you need and more. So we're facing off the new Sony Vaio Pro 13 against Apple's 13-inch MacBook Air (2013).
The Sony brings one of the freshest designs we've seen to date, has a touch screen, and runs Windows 8.
The Apple keeps the same iconic look, but feels more and more dated. But it packs something special under the hood: 14-hour battery life.
It seems that laptops are still bringing innovation, even with the significant rise … Read more
Saying a Ferrari is special is like saying that chocolate is "nice" or that Germans are "efficient." That's a given. Of course a Ferrari is special; it's a car that comes from more precious lineage than the Thai royal family.
Each car is polished to within an inch of its life; Ferrari's engines are tuned to noisy perfection then thrashed to the ragged edge around Maranello's test track. They're more than merely "special" -- they're the epitome of a supercar. Every inch of them screams "I'M … Read more
Apple's iPad Mini still brings some of the best level of design and the power of its iTunes and App Store ecosystems that can't be ignored.
The New Nexus 7 is pushing the 7-inch tablet into new territory with its full HD display. Plus, Google's Play store has transformed itself over the past year; it's no longer a weak spot for Android.
Which tablet will reign supreme? Google'… Read more
