It’s too early to talk about Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S8 smartphone, especially now that the South Korean smartphone maker is getting ready to unveil the Galaxy Note 7. But a new report provides more details about what might be one of the processors that will power some of the best Android smartphones launching next year, including the Galaxy S8. More →
Kickstarter is a fantastic way to get brand-new technology for cheap. But apart from the risk of being scammed, it’s also quite unsatisfying. You pay your money, and a couple months later (if you’re lucky!), something comes in the mail. It’s the opposite of the two-day shipping satisfaction of Amazon Prime, in other words.
So Amazon is trying to fix the problem by adding a dedicated section on its site for buying Kickstarter products.

From the moment that Marvel revealed its universe would extend to television, fans started wondering when we’d see the first inevitable crossover. Sadly, other than a few of the movie characters making their way on to Agents of SHIELD, we haven’t seen much cross-pollination between the movie and TV worlds.

Despite his plans to nuke Mars, Elon Musk is definitely not a supervillain. Nope. And the factory he’s building in the desert, which bears an uncanny resemblance to Blofeld’s lair, is not a supervillain lair.
Don’t believe me? Well, you can watch Elon’s launch event live tonight, but really, there’s nothing to see.
Samsung is widely expected to launch a single Galaxy Note 7 version on August 2nd, a next-gen phablet with a curved “edge” display. A recent report suggested the curved edges would be toned down compared to the Galaxy S7 edge, but a new set of official renders suggests there’s not going to be a flat-screen version of the phone. However, that doesn’t mean such a phone doesn’t exist. An extensive 11-minute hands-on video previous of the flat Galaxy Note 7 was posted on YouTube proving the phone is indeed out there. More →
It’s no secret that car companies routinely buy (and tear apart) each other’s vehicles on a regular basis, either to gain intel or just for the sick pleasure of wanton destruction. So if Apple has two brand-new Model Xs sitting outside a building that’s been linked to its self-driving car division, that means Apple’s building a Model X competitor, right? Not so fast.

Your car can heat your back and cool the cabin with the touch of a button. It can tell you how long it will take to arrive at your destination, and some cars will even warn you if you veer our of your lane.

But no car from the factory includes the awesome features that you can add by installing an Automatic Connected Car Adapter. More →
