Best mouse pads for gaming or business

A great mouse mat is a must for gamers, reducing wear on wrists during hours of intensive play. Many modern ones use chemical coatings or specially engineered surfaces to improve sensor accuracy or reduce drag?a boon if you?re doing repetitive motion that requires high accuracy.

(Don't mistake mouse mats for the smaller mouse pads, once an absolute necessity in the era of mechanical mice. Because optical and laser mice can work on so many different kinds of surfaces, the humble mouse pad has largely disappeared.) 

Plenty of mouse mat manufacturers exist, but few provide clarity or consistency in describing their products. For example, most don?t report how much friction you?ll encounter when using their mats with the most popular mice. To help you find the best mouse mat for your needs, we?ve tested several from a few different companies that represent a range of surface types (metal, plastic, or cloth) and usage cases (business or gaming).

Agents of Mayhem review: Not-so-super heroes

Saint?s Row?s Achilles heel was always combat. It hid this fact by peppering each game with a handful of absurd weapons, from a recliner that fired missiles to the Dubstep gun to the iconic purple dildo bat?still the weapon I most associate with the series.

But even armaments that creative couldn?t hide the fact that combat was often a by-the-book affair. Enemies were brainless, and each encounter involved simply trying to get through it as fast as possible without dying. It?s telling that most of the memorable moments in Saint?s Row had nothing to do with combat, be it the Tron-esque ?Deckers Die? mission, singing Biz Markie in a car with your friends, or an Aerosmith-backed rocket ride into space.

Best gaming keyboards of 2017: Our picks for the top budget, mid-tier, and RGB boards

Choosing a gaming keyboard is a matter of personal taste. One person could be into Cherry Browns and white backlighting. Another might favor Razer Greens and a rippling RGB glow. Gigantic wrist pads, compact shapes, numeric keypads, macro keys, volume controls?a plethora of keyboards exists because everyone wants a different mix of features.

To help you sort through the many options, we?ve sifted through the latest and greatest planks to come up with our top recommendations. All of these are mechanical keyboards, and for good reason?they?re simply more comfortable to use over the long haul. But we?re open-minded, so if we encounter an alternative that works well, you may see it appear on this list. We?ll keep updating it periodically as we test new keyboards.

iPhone 2018 rumors: New modem chips may mean better cellular connectivity

Updated 11/17/17: A new report from KGI details several improvements to cellular connectivity.

It?s not enough that the new iPhone X is only a few days old; rumors about next year?s iPhone are already starting to fly. We?ll keep track of what?s been said and what seems fesible in this article so you can keep up with the latest iPhone gossip.

What's the latest

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, always on top of the latest Apple supply chain gossip, says that we'll see much improved cellular baseband chips in next year's iPhones. It will again source chips from both Intel and Qualcomm, but most phones (70-80%) will sport the Intel chip, specifically an Intel XMM 7560 modem. The Qualcomm modem is expected to be the Snapdragon X20.

Apple delays HomePod till 2018

Apple delays HomePod till 2018

Here?s one Apple product you won?t find under the tree this year: HomePod. While Apple had originally planned to release its HomePod smart speaker in December, it has now announced that it will be pushed back until early 2018.

In a statement to Macworld, Apple said, ?We can?t wait for people to experience HomePod, Apple?s breakthrough wireless speaker for the home, but we need a little more time before it?s ready for our customers. We?ll start shipping in the US, UK and Australia in early 2018.?

The impact on your home: HomePod might not quite have the appeal of iPhone X, Apple Watch Series 3, or even Apple TV 4K, but it?s still an important product in Apple?s catalog. But it?s more important to get it right. We?ve already seen Google deal with issues related to its mini Google Home unknowingly recording people, and Apple can hardly afford a similar gaffe on its first smart speaker. Amazon?s Echo has turned the home speaker into a must-have product, and Apple?s entry needs to be perfect. Missing the important holiday shopping season is tough, but if it means more features and a better experience, than we?re all for it.

Apple releases iOS 11.1.2, fixes iPhone X cold weather bug

Last week, we mentioned reports that the iPhone X touch screen could become unresponsive in very cold weather. Apple said it was aware of the problem, uncommon as it was, and would issue a fix in software.

Today, the company makes good on its promise with iOS 11.1.2. It fixes two bugs. From the release notes:

  • Fixes an issue where the iPhone X screen becomes temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid temperature drop.
  • Addresses an issue that could cause distortion in Live Photos and videos captured with iPhone X.

The release comes shortly after the 11.1.1 update that fixes the notorious A [?] bug, and as Apple works on iOS 11.2, which will add faster wireless charging and Apple Pay Cash.

Vimeo launches HDR and 10-bit color compatible with iPhone X, iPad Pro, and Apple TV 4K

If you want to watch 4K, HDR video on your shiny new Apple TV 4K, you have limited options. Netflix support is great, and the iTunes selection is growing, but we?re still missing two big 4K HDR sources: Amazon Prime Video and YouTube.

But the situation just got a whole lot better with the latest announcement from Vimeo. The video hosting company now supports three new technologies: resolutions up to 8K, HDR, and 10-bit color. Vimeo users can upload content in HDR and 10-bit color through all the usual means, including the Vimeo integration in Final Cut Pro X, Premiere Pro, and Dropbox.
