This week we have our long-awaited Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 review. Samsung's folder is an amazing piece of technology that allows a tablet to fold up and slide into your pocket. It's transformative, but is it worth the premium price tag? That's the big question. And we answer it! Plus, Cliff takes a look at the Wyze smartwatch, a $20 smartwatch that punches above its weight class.

This week, Cliff and Adam have their reviewer hats on for a pair of Lenovo laptops. Cliff has the Lenovo L13 Yoga, and Adam has the Thinkbook 14 Gen 2 with AMD Ryzen 5. The laptops are very similar to each other, with the obvious exception of the processor. The two laptops are different from each other in other ways too. The Yoga has a built-in stylus which artist Cliff is able to utilize quite well. Meanwhile, the Thinkbook has a surprising amount of horsepower, perfect for a podcaster.

We talked a bit about Zagg and the Galaxy Watch 3, before we transitioned over into Beermkr - the connected homebrew machine. Finally, we discussed a number of phones that came out at the end of the month and had a tech yeah from Cliff on his new LG oven.

This week, I've got my full review of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold.  This is the most fun laptop I have ever used. It's so versatile and so unique I can't help but gush. But it's also a bit flawed. Some of it was unavoidable, but some mistakes were entirely avoidable. I'm digging deep on this review to find all the ways this laptop is awesome, and some ways version 2.0 can be better.

This week, We're taking a look at three devices I use on a daily basis. These mini-reviews are for two iPad keyboards by Zagg that have officially eclipsed my love for the Brydge Keyboard. These keyboards are both pretty great. Then, we're taking a look at the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, our latest Samsung acquisition. Is this phone worth three Benjamins? We have our final verdict.

Verizon, AT&T, and others just paid 88 billion with a b dollars to the federal government so they can bring you even more 5Gs.

For the first edition of Beyond a Doud, I'm chatting with Jaime Rivera, COO of Pocketnow. Jaime and I go way back. Pocketnow was my first gig in the industry. We talk about Scotch and knowing your limits. We get into Jaime's roots, growing up in Honduras, working for UPS with a $13 million monthly budget. Then we move into the Apple Macbook Air, and just how damn good that M1 processor is. Spoiler alert: It's really good. Then we get into the Samsung Galaxy S21 and the insane camera setup in that bad boy. All that and more on Beyond a Doud!
