Внешний вид и сборка<p>Как и в случае с макбуками, дзенбуками и прочими бамбуками, Acer выпускает свои ультрабуки в двух размерах – 11,6 и 13,3 дюймов. …

iPad review (4th generation, late 2012)

Last week at an event in San Jose, Apple CEO Tim Cook introduced two new iPads. One, the iPad mini, is a legitimately new product.<p>The other was a small upgrade to the 9.7-inch iPad, bringing a new processor and new Lightning port to the device. But Tim Cook didn't just call the latest iPad a minor, …

Jawbone Up review (2012)

Anyone who bought one of Jawbone's much-hyped Up fitness bands last year found themselves an unwitting participant in a beta test. The brand-new platform promised to get you up and exercising, help you sleep and eat better, and make you more stylish to boot — and we liked it. But there were some …

HTC One review

The Android market has changed radically in the past couple of years. Where we once had a spec war, with manufacturers racing to release ever-more powerful smartphones as quickly as possible, now it’s turning into a marketing battle — and Samsung is winning by a mile. HTC, by comparison, isn’t …

Sony NEX-6 review: can a pocket-sized camera finally kill your DSLR?

I still use a DSLR. Unlike my colleague Dan Seifert (and a handful of other staffers at The Verge), I've never been willing to sacrifice the speed and control of my Nikon D7000 to get a smaller, lighter camera. It's really not an image quality issue — Sony's NEX lineup typically takes excellent …

MacBook Pro with Retina display review (15-inch)

Though Apple quietly discontinued the 17-inch MacBook Pro this week, hardly a tear was shed. In fact, the company went out of its way to replace the ultra-premium tier with something even more covetous — namely, a 15-inch MacBook Pro with such a pixel-dense screen that the company put “Retina …

Kindle Paperwhite review

I was looking forward to the review of the Kindle Paperwhite for one simple reason: I would finally have an excuse to read more. You see, in the hectic day-to-day of running <i>The Verge</i>, I simply don't get enough time to read books. Sure, I joined our Book Club and reread <i>Ubik</i> (that was easy: I'd read …

iPhone 5 review

Ah, to review the iPhone 5; what a blessing, and what a curse. It's actually funny to think that there was a time not that long ago that the iPhone wasn't even a <i>thing</i>, let alone an iconic part of pop culture. A time when an Apple-made phone was just a fantasy; a blogger's fever-dream; a secret …

Pebble smartwatch review

The Pebble smartwatch is a lot more than just a watch — it’s the latest attempt to turn your wrist into the launchpad for a wearable computing revolution. It’s also the preeminent symbol of the Kickstarter hardware revolution. After 85,000 orders, 10 million crowdfunded dollars, and one or two …

Sony RX1 review: shooting like a pro with a pocket-sized camera

It’s hard to shoot pictures in the dark. You typically have the choice of either taking a blurry, dim photo, or using a flash and ruining the ambiance. So you buy a DSLR and an appropriately bright lens, but then you're toting around a big, clunky, and very obvious camera setup. But what if you …
