Review: AmazonBasics Netbook Sleeve with Handle
January 16, 2013 | 12:00 pm

AmazonBasics Netbook Sleeve with HandleSome people like to carry their iPads around in their hands. I’m not one of them, because I’m always afraid I’m going to drop it. A messenger bag is good, but sometimes it’s overkill. For those times, I like the AmazonBasics Netbook Sleeve with Handle.

It's easy enough to use: You simply open any article you've previously saved, press "Listen," and then sit back as Pocket reads the article to you, word for word. It’s a neat update, but is it practical? Here are our impressions: I think Google’s artificial intelligence voices are among the best in the industry. For example, the voice assistant within Google Now sounds...
