iPhone 7 vs. Pixel real-world speed test: The showdown we've been waiting for
We won't spoil the winner, but we will tell you that it's not even close...
After releasing a tantalizing teaser video for Planet Earth 2 last week, BBC today finally gave us some information regarding when its award-winning documentary series is slated to return. Originally scheduled to air sometime in 2016, it appears that the debut of the highly anticipated series has been pushed back ever so slightly. Now comes word via BBC that Planet Earth 2 will hit our TV screens on January 28 on BBC America.
Negan made quite an impression on The Walking Dead. Or better said, Jeffrey Dean Morgan made quite an impression playing the best villain in the series so far. But who is Negan? Why did he become a ruthless, funny, and cerebral leader in the zombie-ridden world?
Well, we have an idea of who Negan is. He’s basically a natural evolution of Rick. Rick is Negan, and Negan is Rick. Thankfully, Rick met a Negan before he became one. Confused? I’ll explain. More →
A few weeks back, an unhappy Apple customer made headlines across the globe when he went on a destructive rampage inside of an Apple store in Dijon, France. In a video that naturally went viral, we see said customer angrily tearing iPhones off of their safety tethers and then smashing them with what we would come to learn was a petanque steel ball. Sparing no device, our protagonist also managed to destroy a MacBook before he was unceremoniously escorted out of the store. When the dust settled, the damage accrued was well into the tens of thousands of dollars.
Over the past few hours, the Internet has been racking its collective brain trying to figure out the backstory to what, on the surface, seems like a relatively straight forward photo. The photo above has been spreading across the web like wildfire, but when I first stumbled across it, I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what the big deal was.
After all, the caption I saw attached to it simply said, “Crazy shiny or not at all shiny?” The answer seemed rather obvious.

Siri has been lambasted in the press lately, with no shortage of tech observers opining that Apple’s personal intelligent assistant lags woefully behind competitors like Google Assistant. Part of the problem, some believe, is that Apple’s dutiful approach to user privacy fundamentally and detrimentally impacts the effectiveness of Siri.
When asked about Siri during the company’s earnings call yesterday, Cook reiterated Apple’s commitment to privacy and emphatically scoffed at the notion that Siri’s ability to handle queries is at all being affected by Apple’s stance on privacy.

The best Marvel movies of the past few years (which encompasses all of Phase Two and some of Phase Three) haven’t looked much like Marvel movies at all.
Guardians of the Galaxy was an intergalactic adventure film, Ant-Man was a small-scale heist film and Doctor Strange, which arrives in theaters next week, feels like a grown-up Harry Potter film mashed up with Inception.
Although Civil War and Iron Man 3 were entertaining and worthwhile additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, nothing has expanded it quite like Doctor Strange.
Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi, often referred to as the Apple of China, surprised the world on Tuesday with a brand new phone design. The Xiaomi Mi Max has an all-screen front side and a ceramic back, but the phone is labeled as a “concept” device. Xiaomi likely can’t make enough units to meet demand, and it probably announced the phone just so that it can one day say it beat Apple by more than a year with a device like this. Anyone following the smartphone business closely already knows that Apple’s iPhone 8 is expected to feature new design with a screen that occupies most of the phone’s front side.
But it turns out that Xiaomi’s Mi Mix phone looks a lot better on paper than in real life when it comes to that edgeless design. More →
Apple is virtually guaranteed to release two new MacBook Pros tomorrow. This is a good thing, because the MacBook Pro lineup is in dire need of an update. Adding an OLED touch panel and a Touch ID sensor is a smart move, even if I am going to be left fidgeting for an Escape key for the rest of my life.
But good or not, the MacBook Pro isn’t the new laptop to get excited about. That would be the refreshed MacBook Air, which, like a tiny spoiled child before Christmas, I’m hoping appears under Santa Cook’s tree tomorrow.
At this point, it’s starting to seem that former GM and BMW executive Bob Lutz has a personal vendetta against Tesla CEO Elon Musk. While we’re accustomed to the outspoken auto industry veteran lambasting Tesla, Lutz in recent months has really dialed up the vitriol, so much so that he’s even taken to publicly making plainly false statements about Tesla’s business.
Earlier today, Lutz appeared on CNBC where he absolutely laid into Musk, Tesla, and even Tesla’s passionate fanbase, effectively calling the latter cult followers.
