But, how has the original Moto Z held up since 2016 and is it still usable in 2021?

Blitzwolf® BW-VP1 LCD Projector Review
I’ve always liked the idea of having a projector as in my home theater but could never justify the price. Projectors, for years, have been very expensive and often don’t deliver as good as a result as a mid to high end TV can. I do think the latter is the case, but the former is no longer the case. Prices of projectors have come down a lot over the years making them something the average person may consider when setting up with home theater.

BlitzWolf BW-FYE5 True Wireless Headphones Review
Last year I got in touch with a company that sells primarily in Banggood and they sent me a pair of their BW-ANC1 headphones which were a wired pair of wireless headphones featuring active noise cancelling. I was very impressed with them for the most part, so when offered their true wireless BW-FYE5 (they really know how to name a product!!) I jumped at the opportunity.
Motorola Z3 Play Review: Third Times a Charm?

Moto G6 Review: The Best Mid-Range Phone You Can Buy (2018)
Before the original Moto G, mid-range phones were hardly even an afterthought for most users. The Moto G changed all that and opened the floodgates for device makers to start showing that you do not need to have flagship specs and pricing to give customers a great smartphone experience.
After years of dominating the mid-range market the last years, Moto G5 was more or less a flop, so expectations are understandably low with the release of the g6 this year.
Check out my review of the moto g6. Can Motorola return to the top of the heap in the mid-range game?
Microsoft Surface Book 2 Review: The Best Laptop Money Can Buy?
The Surface Book 2 is the newest device in Microsoft’s stable of PCs. It offers an exceptionally wide array of functionality thanks to its unique detachable clipboard design.

Check out the full review of the Microsoft Surface Book 2 to find out where I stand.

Snipaste Review: Upgrade Your Screenshots On Windows 10
The built in snipping tool in Windows 10 is fine. Not good, not bad, just fine. However, for many users, myself included, it just doesn’t do enough. There are alternatives like Tech Smith’s “Snagit”, but Snagit comes at a cost.
I recently stumbled upon Snipaste in the Windows Store and was pleasantly surprised by how powerful this screenshot tool was, and even even better, it is free!

Add QI Wireless Charging To (Almost) Any Phone
Qi wireless charging has been around for several years now. However, most phones, flagships included have chosen to skip adding the feature to their devices each year until Apple invented the technology when they announced the newest iPhone, the iPhone X. With such a limited supply of Qi enable phones accessory makers have begun to fill in the void left by the manufacturers by creating USB-connected Qi wireless dongles.
Check out this review of the Nillkin Qi Wireless USB-C Charging Receiver.
Twitter Lite for Windows 10
