Does Tesla hate its own customers?

Does Tesla hate its own customers?

Among for-profit companies born in Silicon Valley, few have a nobler cause than Tesla. Make no mistake, Tesla is a publicly traded company and its goal first and foremost is to make money. But unlike most companies in and around the Valley, it’s changing the world for the better while it makes money. It doesn’t build useless iPhone apps and it’s not trying to launch an Uber for kitty litter. Tesla makes electric cars and has singlehandedly sped up the transition in the automotive industry from gas to alternative fuel sources by a decade at the very least.

With all that in mind, it’s difficult to comprehend how a company doing so much good can hate its customers so much at the same time. More →

Hands on with the shockingly sleek Moto Z and Moto Z Force

In an industry where it’s practically impossible to keep anything a secret, Lenovo managed to surprise most people when it unveiled the Moto Z and Moto Z Force last month. These new phones featured gorgeous new designs and cutting-edge specs, and they also outdid LG by introducing a better modular accessory system than the one on the LG G5.

I finally spent some time with both new phones this morning and I can already say that they live up to the hype… and then some. More →

Look at this new leaked photo and tell me which phone is hotter than the iPhone 7

Serious question: Which smartphone out there right now is hotter than the upcoming iPhone 7?

We’re about two months away from seeing the next-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro unveiled on stage by Apple. But as has been the case for the past several years, there’s precious little mystery left. If all the recent leaks and rumors pan out — and most of them will — we already know about nearly all of the new specs and features the iPhone 7 will include, and we also know exactly what it will look like. And it’s the phone’s looks that have caused the biggest stir. More →

Galaxy Note 7 looks stunning in new leaked photos

On Tuesday evening, Samsung announced the date on which it plans to announce the Galaxy Note 7. Odd that it would confirm the name of a phone ahead of its announcement without providing any additional details, but that doesn’t make the upcoming unveiling any less exciting. The new Galaxy Note 7 phablet is expected to be the sleekest and most powerful smartphone Samsung has ever created, and now a new set of leaked photos likely gives us a good look at the upcoming new Galaxy Note 7 from just about every angle.

Pokemon Go Ads

The next brilliant feature coming to Pokemon Go: Ads

The next brilliant feature coming to Pokemon Go: Ads

My wife took a few extra minutes to get to work on Tuesday morning. It wasn’t because of the traffic, though the area where we live in Northern New Jersey has plenty of that. It was because she had to wait for a young couple to catch the Pokemon that had wandered up our driveway.

Everyone is playing Pokemon Go, the long-awaited and hotly anticipated game co-created by Nintendo. Available for both iOS and Android, Pokemon Go is an augmented reality scavenger hunt that tasks players with chasing down and capturing Pokemon in the real world. The app takes players all over as they try to catch as many Pokemon as possible, but the locations they have to visit in order to catch Pokemon will be a little less random in the near future.

That’s right, get ready for ads to invade Pokemon Go. More →

Galaxy Note 7 Release Date

Samsung just made the Galaxy Note 7 official, but it won’t confirm any details

Samsung just made the Galaxy Note 7 official, but it won’t confirm any details

In something of an unconventional move on Tuesday evening, Samsung announced that it will announce the Galaxy Note 7.

Maybe we should clarify.

The world’s No. 1 smartphone company by shipment volume confirmed in a blog post on Tuesday that it will unveil its next-generation Galaxy Note 7 during a press conference next month. The event will take place in New York City on August 2nd, aligning perfectly with a number of earlier rumors that suggested Samsung’s new Note phablet would debut on that date. Unfortunately, Samsung didn’t confirm any other details about the phone or when it might be released. More →

Let’s talk about how hot the iPhone 7 looks in these leaked photos

Let’s talk about how hot the iPhone 7 looks in these leaked photos

OK, dear readers, it’s time for another quick chat about the iPhone 7. Walk with me.

Last week I decided I just couldn’t take all this talk about how “boring” the iPhone 7 is shaping up to be, so I wrote something about it. I mean seriously, does this new phone really sound boring to you? Really? That article resulted in thousands of shares on social media, hundreds of comments and dozens of emails. Many people disagreed with me and many more agreed, but there’s little question based on our coverage thus far that the iPhone 7 is the most hotly anticipated smartphone of the year — boring or not.

Another day, another leak, another reason to revisit this polarizing issue. More →

Tesla Autopilot Crash

Driver of this wrecked Model X is blaming his accident on Tesla’s Autopilot

Driver of this wrecked Model X is blaming his accident on Tesla’s Autopilot

Tesla’s Autopilot software might have logged more than 130 million miles before its first fatal accident, but the crash that broke that streak started a new trend. No, there thankfully haven’t been any fatal Autopilot crashes since that incident earlier this year. But now, it seems like every time a Tesla driver gets into an accident, he or she takes to the internet and blames Tesla’s Autopilot software.

The software in the Model S and Model X is constantly recording data so Tesla is typically pretty quick to come out and confirm whether or not Autopilot was active when widely publicized accidents take place. So far, the company has done much more denying than confirming. Now, yet another serious accident has been blamed on Tesla’s Autopilot. More →
