Whatever it is, it’s superb. Think of any of the endless catalogs of classic riffs in music — from Led Zeppelin’s electrifying intro to Good Times Bad Times, to the dancing instrumentals of Frank Sinatra’s Fly Me to The Moon — and these buds instantly make them even better. They’re remarkably clear and, with a frequency response of 20-25,000 Hz, showcase a masterful soundstage. I’d give the WF-1000XM3 the edge in low end, with bass being the one area with the 300TW that’s not as impactful. That said, the bass provided is likely to be more than adequate rumble for most people. … [Read more...] about Audio-Technica ATH-ANC300TW review: A worthy Sony alternative

Microsoft Office 2019 Microsoft Office 2019 is the latest iteration of its classic Office suite. The standard Personal version features Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint as its core apps while the Professional version features the same core apps as Office 365, but note that it lacks cloud services like Skype and OneDrive (however, you can get basic versions of these programs for free). Another thing to bear in mind is that your Office 2019 license only allows you to install it on one Windows or MacOS computer at a time — no other devices are supported, and neither are multiple installations across several devices. For that, you will need to upgrade to Microsoft Office 365. The flip-side of that coin is that Microsoft Office 2019 is a “buy once, cry once” affair (once you own it, it’s yours), whereas Office 365 has a monthly subscription fee. … [Read more...] about These are the best Microsoft Office deals for July 2020
The Galaxy S20 Ultra is next to go. While the photo looks good, the edge recognition is messy at the top of the log and makes the effect look too fake. The Google Pixel 4’s photo is great, but it’s low on detail, an area where the P40 Pro Plus’s photo excels. Zoom in on the center, and the Dancer inscription remains astonishingly sharp, as does the texture of the log itself. Combine this with the very natural bokeh blur, and it takes the win. … [Read more...] about Camera shootout: Can Huawei’s P40 Pro Plus beat Apple, Samsung, and Google?
Republic Wireless If your needs are modest, then Republic Wireless is very affordable option, especially if you mainly need a phone for talk and text. The most basic talk/text plan includes unlimited calls and text messaging for just $15 per month; if you want to add some data to your talk and text plan, then you can tack on 4G LTE for $5 per 1GB (which would come to $20 per month for unlimited talk, text, and 1GB of 4G data, for example). However, if you pay in advance for a yearly “My Choice” plan, you get two months free: For instance, a $15/month talk + text plan is $150 per year, a $20/month plan is $200 per year, and a $25/month plan with 2GB of data comes to $250 for the year. … [Read more...] about The best cell phone plan deals for July 2020: Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and more
