There’s finally an upcoming iPad upgrade worth getting excited about

It’s been a long time coming, but it finally seems appears that the iPad mini will be getting some long-deserved and welcome upgrades. A new report from 9to5Mac relays that recently discovered data strings in OS X El Capitan point to the iPad mini 4 getting support for Split View mode, a feature that will become available once iOS 9 drops.

With Split View mode, iPad users will be able to view and use two separate apps side by side. This multitasking functionality will instantly transform the iPad into a much more capable and appealing computing device.

London to New York in 1 hour? Airbus might be working on a plane faster than the Concorde

Travelers who regularly fly from the U.S. to Europe and back should be thrilled to hear that Airbus might be developing a brand new superfast jet that would make the journey from London to New York in just one hour.

That’s much faster than the Concorde jet that needed three and a half hours to travel the same distance. Meanwhile, regular commercial flights need seven to eight hours for the trip. More →

Lexus’ real hoverboard finally has a release date – but don’t get too excited

The Lexus Slide hoverboard shown off in a teaser ad not long ago turned plenty of heads. It was meant to be more of a publicity stunt than a real product, at least according to what Lexus said, but the hoverboard is actually real and it’s coming sooner than you think.

But don’t get too excited about it just yet. More →

iPad mini 4 and iPad Air 3 details finally revealed in new report

As iPhone sales continue to impress, iPad sales continue to plummet. During Apple’s most recent earnings report, it was disclosed that year over year, iPad sales fell by 18%. What’s more, revenue from iPad-related sales dropped by 23%.

Nonetheless, Apple remains committed to the tablet space, with Tim Cook stating as recently as April that Apple will continue to invest in the iPad product pipeline. Cook also said that he “strongly predicts” that iPad sales will pick up in the future.

So with fall right around the corner, we’ll likely be seeing an iPad refresh sometime in the next three months or so. To that end, a recent report from the Japanese-language Macotakara blog relays a few tidbits about what we can expect to see when Apple revamps its iPad lineup later this year.

Watch the military’s new trillion-dollar fighter jet test its cannons for the first time

Watch the military’s new trillion-dollar fighter jet test its cannons for the first time

The F-35 fighter is one expensive military project, but the stealth plane should become a primary weapon for the U.S. and its allies soon. Sure, some recent reports suggested the sophisticated fighter might not be able to beat the plane it’s replacing in a fight. But hey, it’s still fun to watch an official video that shows us one of the F-35’s weapons being tested for the first time. More →

This new tech could lead to gadgets that never need to be charged

This new tech could lead to gadgets that never need to be charged

Following the Apple Watch’s debut, people made a big deal out of the idea that the device’s battery would only last about a day on each charge. Of course, it’s hardly a problem since the Watch isn’t in use while its owner sleeping, but the fact remains that batteries are still the biggest barrier standing between us and the ideal gadget experience. Every piece of portable electronics we use, from phones and tablets to laptops and cameras, needs to be charged.

As it turns out, however, that might not always be the case. More →

F-35 F-16 Fighter Dogfight Test

A Trillion Dollars Got the Army an F-35 That’s Worse Than the F-16 It Replaces

A Trillion Dollars Got the Army an F-35 That’s Worse Than the F-16 It Replaces

The Army spent more than $1 trillion on the F-35 airplane program, a next-gen fighter that should outclass the F-16 in every way. The stealthy new flagship plane will be used by the U.S. Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps, as well as the militaries of more than a dozen U.S. allies in the future, replacing the F-16. But don’t expect it to perform better than the F-16 that the U.S. Air Force first acquired in the late 1970s, even though it should be superior to the F-16 in every conceivable way. More →

Lexus Hoverboard: How It Works and Why You Won’t See It in Stores Anytime Soon

A few days ago, a short Lexus video went viral on YouTube, as the luxury carmaker apparently created a real hoverboard called Slide. Thanks to the Back to the Future movies, skateboarding fans have been waiting for years for such a product to be created, and it’s no coincidence that Lexus released the Slide promo video this year.

But is it actually a real, functioning device? More →
