Best mouse pads for gaming or business

A great mouse mat is a must for gamers, reducing wear on wrists during hours of intensive play. Many modern ones use chemical coatings or specially engineered surfaces to improve sensor accuracy or reduce drag?a boon if you?re doing repetitive motion that requires high accuracy.

(Don't mistake mouse mats for the smaller mouse pads, once an absolute necessity in the era of mechanical mice. Because optical and laser mice can work on so many different kinds of surfaces, the humble mouse pad has largely disappeared.) 

Plenty of mouse mat manufacturers exist, but few provide clarity or consistency in describing their products. For example, most don?t report how much friction you?ll encounter when using their mats with the most popular mice. To help you find the best mouse mat for your needs, we?ve tested several from a few different companies that represent a range of surface types (metal, plastic, or cloth) and usage cases (business or gaming).

Agents of Mayhem review: Not-so-super heroes

Saint?s Row?s Achilles heel was always combat. It hid this fact by peppering each game with a handful of absurd weapons, from a recliner that fired missiles to the Dubstep gun to the iconic purple dildo bat?still the weapon I most associate with the series.

But even armaments that creative couldn?t hide the fact that combat was often a by-the-book affair. Enemies were brainless, and each encounter involved simply trying to get through it as fast as possible without dying. It?s telling that most of the memorable moments in Saint?s Row had nothing to do with combat, be it the Tron-esque ?Deckers Die? mission, singing Biz Markie in a car with your friends, or an Aerosmith-backed rocket ride into space.

Best gaming keyboards of 2017: Our picks for the top budget, mid-tier, and RGB boards

Choosing a gaming keyboard is a matter of personal taste. One person could be into Cherry Browns and white backlighting. Another might favor Razer Greens and a rippling RGB glow. Gigantic wrist pads, compact shapes, numeric keypads, macro keys, volume controls?a plethora of keyboards exists because everyone wants a different mix of features.

To help you sort through the many options, we?ve sifted through the latest and greatest planks to come up with our top recommendations. All of these are mechanical keyboards, and for good reason?they?re simply more comfortable to use over the long haul. But we?re open-minded, so if we encounter an alternative that works well, you may see it appear on this list. We?ll keep updating it periodically as we test new keyboards.

How to cancel an app subscription on iPhone or iPad

Signing up for a subscription service like Apple News+ through iOS is kind of fun. A menu pops pop, you activate Face ID or Touch ID, and the world?s most satisfying ding lets you know your purchase was successful. It?s simplicity itself.

As for unsubscribing? That?s not so simple, but it?s better than it used to be. For years Apple would make you venture into depths of the Settings app that you probably never even knew existed in order to find your list of subscriptions, and you can still take that route if you wish. Now, though, Apple now lets you access your subscriptions directly through the App Store app. It?s still not incredibly intuitive, but it?s a massive improvement over the hoops we had to jump through.

The Mac is becoming more like iOS?and I think I like it

I fell in love with the Mac nearly 30 years ago, in the fall of 1989. It?s been the center of my tech world ever since, and I?ve been writing about it professionally for 25 years. And yet these past months, I?ve noticed something strange creeping into my thoughts occasionally while I sit at my desk working on my iMac Pro: iOS does this better.

It?s disconcerting, after three decades, to suddenly find that manipulation of files and folders in the Finder has gone from being business as usual to seeming like it?s more fuss and effort than is necessary. And yet that?s where I am now, thanks to a couple of years of using an iPad Pro rather than a MacBook Air whenever I?m away from my desk. The iPad, she has infected me. And I fear there is no cure.
