By about 44 mins ago.

So many smartphones ship with support for wireless charging these days, which is pretty great. Instead of having to fumble with cables and whatnot, you simply place your smartphone on a special wireless charging pad and you’re done.

The BGR Deals team is here to solve the issue for you. For just $16 including express shipping, you can get a brand new RAVPower Mini Wireless Charging Pad that will work with any Qi compatible device. More →

How a snowball survived getting submerged into molten steel

How a snowball survived getting submerged into molten steel

By about 10 hours ago.

Do snowballs have a chance in hell? Up for a good challenge, the engineers over at GE set out to answer that question as part of the company’s celebration of Thomas Edison’s birthday this year.

What GE attempted to do was to submerge a snowball in molten steel and see if it survives. Of course, the snowball was clothed in high-tech materials. By itself, it wouldn’t stand a chance. And, naturally, there’s video for this imaginative stunt. More →

Hours later, anti-piracy groups were already publicly decrying the technology, but whether you care about the obvious legal issues surrounding Torrents-Time or not, you still might want to avoid using it. More →

Although the idea of owning a car with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay might sound like a dream come true, it’s far too cost-prohibitive for the average consumer. So what do you do if you want a connected car without breaking the bank?

Assassin’s Creed is taking 2016 off, which is exactly what the series needs

Better late than never. On Thursday, Ubisoft confirmed the rumors that the Assassin’s Creed series would be taking a year off for the first time since 2008. It didn’t come as much of a surprise, as rumors of the decision had been circulating for months, but it was  a sigh of relief for fans of the flagging franchise.

If Assassin’s Creed is going to survive the generation, Ubisoft needs to take a step back and re-examine one of its biggest properties. More →

Apple’s ambitions to shake up TV have been a bust so far

By on February 11, 2016 at 7:00 PM.

Last year, I expressed some enthusiasm about Apple’s new Apple TV set-top box. There was one caveat to this enthusiasm, however — I assumed that it would soon be followed by the launch of Apple’s own TV streaming service that would go head-to-head with Netflix in the battle for our living rooms. That hasn’t happened yet and it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen anytime soon or even at all. More →
