Switching From iPhone 6s Plus to iPhone XS Max: My Upgrade Experience

After about four years, I decided to swap out my trusty, reliable iPhone 6s Plus for a brand new (and very expensive) iPhone XS Max. There was nothing wrong with the 6s Plus. In fact, I think I could have comfortably pushed my usage of it for another year or so if I truly wanted […]

Dell XPS 15 laptop (with 4K display) review: A blogger’s experience

The Good: Dell’s nearly edgeless display makes the XPS 15 a complete joy to work on, and especially to watch video content.
