The 7 best features on Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 (none of which are on the iPhone)

We’re just two short days away from Samsung’s official Galaxy Note 7 release, and the reviews are in. We covered the hot new phablet in our in-depth Galaxy Note 7 review and here’s the TL;DR version: It will be the best phablet on the planet when it launches this Friday, and it’ll almost certainly still be the best phablet on the planet next month, even after Apple releases its next-generation iPhone 7 Plus.

We obviously recommend reading our full Galaxy Note 7 review before you reach any conclusions. But for those looking for a quick overview of the best new functionality Samsung’s latest phablet has to offer, we’ve compiled the phone’s seven hottest features in this post. More →

Inside the CT6: It doesn’t take a Tesla to surround yourself with tech

Inside the CT6: It doesn’t take a Tesla to surround yourself with tech

The conversation surrounding Tesla and its lineup of electric vehicles has changed over the past 12 months or so. “Electric” had been at the center of every Tesla conversation for a long time. Tesla succeeded not only in creating an electric car that was desirable and popular, it forced the entire industry to dive into EVs years earlier than they otherwise would have. A decade earlier, perhaps.

So now, conversations involving Tesla typically focus on technology. The Model S and Model X are packed full of exciting new tech, Autopilot has been a game-changer, and Tesla’s over the air software update system is nothing short of revolutionary for the automotive industry. Who would’ve thought even a few years ago that you could park your car in the garage one night and wake up the next morning with new features?

But Tesla is hardly the only game in town when it comes to exciting new tech. More →

iPhone 7 Rumors 2016

iPhone 7: Our biggest question was just answered

iPhone 7: Our biggest question was just answered

Apple’s upcoming new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are the most talked about smartphones of 2016… and they don’t even exist yet. We’re less than one month away from seeing Apple unveil its next-generation iPhone lineup and if an earlier report from a reliable source ends up panning out, we’re almost exactly one month away from seeing the new iPhone models hit store shelves. Of note, a more recent report suggests that the iPhone 7 might be released a bit later than expected, but we’re not very confident that rumor is accurate.

Leaks and rumors from reliable sources have painted a near-complete picture of Apple’s upcoming new iPhones, but there are still a few questions that remain. Now, however, one of the biggest ones may have been answered. More →

VW Electric Car 2016

Good news: VW will unveil a new all-electric car next month, so it can’t cheat on emissions

Good news: VW will unveil a new all-electric car next month, so it can’t cheat on emissions

It will cost Volkswagen billions of dollars to climb out of the deep hole that was dug when it was discovered that the company had been cheating on emissions. Using special software that was developed in-house, VW’s diesel cars were able to sense when they were being tested and reduce their emissions during the tests. Then, once the tests were completed, emissions levels would elevate far above legal levels, increasing the engine’s power and fuel economy as a result.

The 80-year-old automaker is still in the early stages of rebuilding, but its next move will at least put it on a track where it cannot repeat the mistakes of the past. More →

People who preordered the Galaxy Note 7 are in for a nice surprise

Samsung’s hot new Galaxy Note 7 smartphone is the best phablet the world has even seen. Period. We published our in-depth Galaxy Note 7 review on Tuesday morning and in it, we explained just how good Samsung’s new phablet really is. The design has been dramatically improved, making the phone incredibly comfortable to hold despite its massive 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display. The updated internal components provide more power than ever before. And the new software features make an already great stylus experience even better.

Android fans who preordered the Galaxy Note 7 are already in for a treat when they receive the best new phablet in the world, but it looks like many people are about to enjoy an extra little surprise. More →

Windows Holographic OS

Every Windows 10 PC will get Windows Holographic next year

Every Windows 10 PC will get Windows Holographic next year

Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 7 is a phenomenal smartphone and Apple’s next-generation iPhone 7 is shaping up to be an exciting upgrade as well. Companies are making huge strides in the virtual reality space right now, and we’re seeing very early versions of autonomous driving software reach the public. But for my money, mixed reality devices like Microsoft’s HoloLens make up the most exciting segment in consumer technology right now — at least, in terms of products that will materialize and be widely available in the next couple of years.

On Tuesday, Microsoft gave users even more cause for excitement when it announced ambitious plans to make mixed reality tech widely accessible as soon as next year. More →

Pokemon Go came from out of nowhere to become one of the most successful mobile games of all times. Within days of its release, tens of millions of people around the world were hooked and so far the hot new game is showing no signs of slowing down. Pokemon Go remains the top grossing app in Apple’s iOS App Store, and it’s also still in the top 5 in Apple’s free downloads category. But after all this time, people still seem to be having a lot of trouble with one particular aspect of the game: Pokemon Go gym battles.

In this post we’ll discuss what a gym battle is as well why people have been having so much trouble with gym battles, and we’ll also show you a video that details how you can win every single Pokemon gym battle with relative ease. More →

iPhone 7 Leaked Photos

See the Space Black iPhone 7 Plus you’ve been waiting for in these leaked photos

In case you couldn’t tell from the fact that the pace of iPhone 7 leaks has picked up dramatically over the past couple of weeks, Apple’s next-generation iPhones are almost here. We’ve seen tons of photos and information leak from a wide range of sources over the course of August, and we even got to see a video that shows a working iPhone 7 in action for the first time ever. Excitement among Apple fans is reaching new heights despite the fact that many tech blogs are judging a book by its cover and running with the idea that this year’s new iPhones are going to be boring. But as we’ve discussed, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are shaping up to be anything but boring.

Speaking of excitement, rumor has it that Apple’s upcoming iPhones will be made available in at least one brand new color — and a fresh set of leaked photos shows us exactly what Apple’s new color might look like. More →

Galaxy Note 7 Review

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review

While nothing is official until Apple makes it so, there’s little doubt in most industry watchers’ minds that we know practically everything there is to know about the upcoming iPhone 7 Plus. It’s going to look eerily similar to the iPhone 6 Plus and 6s Plus, but with a few minor design tweaks. It’ll also feature a new dual camera setup and upgraded specs but apart from that, it will for the most part be a faster iPhone 6s Plus. To be frank, the iPhone 6s Plus is a great smartphone but a pretty lousy phablet, and we likely shouldn’t expect much more from the new iPhone 7 Plus.

When it comes to phablets, Samsung is still ahead of the pack. And with the brand new Galaxy Note 7, the company’s lead in the phablet market has only grown. More →

iPhone 7 Rumors

Yet another exciting new iPhone 7 feature may have just been uncovered

Yet another exciting new iPhone 7 feature may have just been uncovered

Thinner housing, updated design, more powerful processor, improved antenna design, better displays, hugely improved cameras, new 3D Touch home button, double the storage, better water-resistance… man oh man, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus sure do sound boring!

We have discussed at length the idea that Apple’s new 2016 iPhone lineup is going to be “boring” in recent weeks, and this past Friday I penned a post suggesting the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are going to be anything but boring when they’re finally unveiled in the coming weeks. Now, on top of everything we’ve already heard, evidence from a source with a decent track record suggests that Apple has yet another new feature coming to this year’s new iPhones that Apple fans have been waiting for.
