We have an electronic scale in the PC Labs. We also have a lot of consumer electronics. Honestly, this whole thing was bound to happen, sooner or later. We asked the PCMag staff to bring in those pieces of obsolete technology that they just can’t let go of—for one reason or other (sometimes it pays to work with a bunch of tech hoarders)—to see how they stack up against today’s electronics.
Sure, the trend in the industry seems to be perpetually headed in the direction of lighter and more portable gadgets, but the results of our extensive testing (i.e. sticking gadgets on an electronic scale and then reading the numbers) were sometimes surprising.
The game itself is fairly simple—we’ve got seven rounds, each pitting one gadget against another. The heaviest wins (this is the heavyweight championship, after all).
