If you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard of Apex Legends, then here’s your wake-up call. While it doesn’t have the player base compared to big titles like Fortnite or PUBG, probably because it’s not available on mobile (yet?), “Ape Legs,” as at least two of us in the office like to call it, isn’t fighting this battle sitting down. In less than one week of a February release, Apex has...

Once a year—mostly during the spring season—we normally perform a set of cleaning tasks that streamlines our daily lives. This may include cleaning the home thoroughly to improve our health, tuning up the car to achieve better pep when stepping on the accelerator, and clearing out the garage or attic of junk to make more space. But what about our computer, this thing that we use most of our lives...

I hate backing up. I do it, but I hate it. If you’re not running backups, you’re courting heartache. My cautionary tale: A few years ago, my brother and I were editing our first indie feature. Our data got corrupted. Nothing was backed up. We lost three months of post-production—the entire film. Starting from scratch nearly killed us. Don’t let it happen to you. Data loss is more than an...

For most of us, cables and cords are a necessary component of everyday life: they supply power to our electronic devices, transmit data and signals, and facilitate communication. Yet, despite all the good they do, cables often prove to be somewhat of a nuisance, either as an eyesore or—in setups like mine—a hazard. The floor between the Internet router and my bedroom is essentially an intricate...

When it comes time to build a computer, populate a RAID or NAS array, replace a corrupted drive, or expand your system’s current storage capacity, the sheer quantity of drive options can be daunting.

The best parts of building your own system are the flexibility, component options, savings, and the “I did it myself” feeling of accomplishment. I’ve also been looking at computers since I was a kid and, to this day, manufacturers will offer something like a top-tier Core™ i7 processor with 64GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD, and a GTX 1030. And just like you, I’m whispering the same three words to myself....

I have been a fan of the Microsoft Surface since the original Surface RT released, in 2012, and although that version turned out to be quickly eclipsed by more powerful and better constructed devices in the rapidly changing tablet market, the subsequent Surface Pro series got the whole tablet-hybrid-2-in-1 craze right.

Dad, can we get a dog?” and “Rich, what’s your Wi-Fi password?” are questions I always pretend I didn’t hear when first asked. I’ve gotten good at changing the topic or pretending to be deep in thought when presented with a question I have no intention of answering. I even have a go-to “deep in thought” expression; staring at the ceiling, hand under chin, one eyebrow raised—it’s awfully...

It has been a challenging year for laptops (and for humans, in general—but for laptop aficionados, as well). Between declining sales and an early report that people are hanging on to their laptops for longer than ever, buying a laptop has never been riskier or more challenging. But with more powerful processors being announced monthly, and the dependence on higher-end graphics for a more...

From touchscreen operation to online navigation, techy tots have nearly mastered it all—which makes gifting during the holidays a little difficult.
