Why Get a Mechanical Keyboard?

Why Get a Mechanical Keyboard?

I’ve been covering mechanical keyboards for quite a while now, dealing with the whole spectrum, but I’ve never really talked about why. Why mechanical keyboards?

For many of us a keyboard is an essential tool that we use everyday, whether it be at home or at work; or both. So like many other everyda...

Can You Live with a $200 Laptop?

- Hey guys, this is Austin. We spent a lot of time reviewing high-end gaming gear, such as $3,000 gaming laptops, what we don't do enough, is check out things that are a little bit more reasonably priced and by reasonably priced, I mean $200 for the entire laptop. This is the Asus VivoBook E203MA.

Luckily, th...

How To Turn Any Android Phone Into An iPhone...

So I got an email, recently, with a bizarre suggestion And a link to an app lets you turn your Android phone into an iPhone X. Why would you want to do that? Second of all, what does he mean exactly?

The real reason Google made Android

The real reason Google made Android

- So Android, it's been around for about 10 years now. And it all started with the release of the T-Mobile G1 back on September 23rd, 2008. But here's a question. Why did Google bother making Android in the first place?

Phones were actually rel...

A CRUCIAL step to making INCREDIBLE videos!! AUDIO & SFX

A CRUCIAL step to making INCREDIBLE videos!! AUDIO & SFX

- What's up everybody. Peter McKinnon here and today, Whew! We're talking about sound effects. Audio and how editing them together will make your films and your YouTube videos and just basically everything so much better. (motivating drum music) I'm gonna start by saying this. Sound is so important. Audio is so important. We process audio before we process video. That's actually how it works. It's funny if you think about it 'cause we can watch a low res video on YouTube, on the internet, somewh...
