Mingis on Tech: The iPhone 7, Apple Watch 2 -- and the gadget guy!

Wherein we learn if Executive Editor Ken Mingis is indeed an Apple sheep and then turn our attention to other devices

A lot can change in a couple of weeks when you're debating whether to get a new iPhone 7.

When last we left Executive News Editor Ken Mingis, he was trying to decide whether to buy an iPhone 7 Plus -- and working hard to convince Apple expert Michael deAgonia and Multimedia Editor Keith Shaw that he was seriously undecided. (Yeah, right.)

In today's episode, we have a decision -- and a quick check with deAgonia about how his new Apple Watch Series 2 and watchOS 3 are working out for him.

Saving the best for last, Shaw returns as our resident gadget guy, which makes sense: The holiday shopping season is fast approaching, and he's the go-to Cool Tools guy when it comes to hardware and devices likely to show up as gifts this year. There's an Android device that uses infrared sensors, a meditation headband -- yes, really -- and one more thing.

(Just wait 'til you see Shaw playing air guitar.)

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
