A Windows laptop with enough power to be a desktop; a MacBook as portable as a tablet (with the notch of a smartphone); and a Chromebook that wants to become … whatever you want it to be.

A portable game deck that gives you the power of a console on the road; and a pocketable one that turns back the clock on what mobile gaming even means.

A smartwatch stymied by Google; another one that barely admits that Google has anything to do with it; and a trio of wireless earphones that make my travel a whole lot more relaxing.

I’m Michael Fisher and these are ten products that I planned to review – but didn’t quite get to – in 2022!
