While there are many ways to add tech to an older vehicle, putting a hands-free virtual assistant in your car is one of the easiest.

Laptops with USB-C ports are great if all your things are compatible with USB-C. But what if they aren’t? Or what if you need to plug in more accessories than you have ports?

You can’t be a hardcore gamer without looking a little dorky.

Razer is, arguably, one of the most bombastic brands out there. It’s the originator of the “gamer” aesthetic, due in no small part to its extreme branding stretching back to its founding in the late ’90s. And a big part of that branding is in its names.
