With Oscar-winning filmmakers such as Steven Soderbergh and Claude Lelouch lately making films using an iPhone, we now have an even better appreciation of the benefits of smartphone filmmaking. In an interview with HeyUGuys, Soderbergh—known for films like Traffic and Ocean’s Eleven—explained that only with a phone could he have made his film Unsane the way he wanted to, shown the film he wanted to show.

To say that holiday shopping is stressful is about as obvious as the odds of successfully navigating an asteroid field being approximately 3,720 to 1. But if you’ve got a tech enthusiast on that list, the odds are great that this gift guide will have a cool, unique piece of tech they’ll love to unwrap this holiday season.

To help fight some of these freshman failings, we’ve put together a list of our five favorite fitness accessories. They won't stop you from choosing problematic paramours, but they can help you to stay healthy and happy.

Are you looking for a fitness coach or a personal assistant? Do you want something sleek and sartorially minded, or do you prize function above all? To help decide which device is right for you, we’ve put together this buying guide of some of the best smartwatches on the market today.
But first, a note: Throughout this piece, we will, from time to time, use the term “smartwatch” as the market often does—as a catch-all. We’re aware that certain wrist wearables don’t meet all the technical criteria of a smartwatch, but we’re going to forego
Father’s Day is nearly upon us and this year, instead of a new tie or pair of socks, how about getting dad something that’s both wearable and a bit more modern? Look, don’t get us wrong: The classics are classic for a reason, but sometimes it’s nice to break from tradition (looking at you, World’s Greatest Dad trucker hat). With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of alternatives to the tried—or was it tired?—and true Father's Day gifts. Back away from the sock bin, kids. This is what Dad really wants.

Someday, we'll look back at 2018 and remember it as part of the Golden Age of consumer drones, a time when advanced, affordable UAVs were everywhere. In fact, our biggest gripe might be that there were too many quality options available. To help you sort through the over-abundance of aerial excellence, we've put together a list of nine distinctive drones that manage to separate themselves from the flock.

You might have heard the old saying "The best camera for the job is the one you have with you." In this age of ubiquitous smartphone use, your cell phone may sometimes be just that camera, since you probably do carry it everywhere.

Third, the drone should be built to withstand the rigors of whatever adventure you throw at it (within reason, of course). With these

It’s been a long summer, so before we get started let’s refresh on a couple of core terms you’ll need to know. Don’t worry—there’s no quiz after this.
mAh: This is the battery’s capacity. More mAh equals more power. If your phone has a 3000mAh battery, a 6000mAh
During this year’s Adventure Week, we swam with the sharks, ran a four-mile obstacle course, hiked a 100-foot waterfall, and sailed the ocean blue. Along the way, we picked up some great tips and tricks, including what gear to bring along. For our mobile devices, we also learned that adding a little “rugged” to your equipment is key.
