Smartphones are starting to get cool again. Sure, you can say smartphones are already cool. What’s not awesome about powerful pocket-sized computers that can do almost anything? Thing is, we pretty much all have one. Slabs of glass and metal that can generally do the same stuff.

Bluetooth sunglasses with speakers embedded inside them, the Frames™ are an innovative take on wearable tech. But are they any good? To find out, I took them for a month-long test drive. Here’s my review.
Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the new Samsung Galaxy smartphone features a gorgeous display, excellent camera system, and lightning-fast performance. If that adulation sounds familiar, it’s probably because you’ve heard some version of it repeated several times over the last decade. Why the echo?

Overall, the Microsoft Surface Headphones are a great pair of everyday-carry headphones that rival the most popular cans on the market—with a price point to match. The design is sleek, the control functions kind of brilliant, and, as far as sound performance goes, you won't be disappointed.

In 1989, Motorola released what is considered by many to be the world’s first commercial flip phone, the MicroTAC 9800x.
