Google’s self-driving cars might be ready for mass consumption, a pair of reports this week have suggested. After Alphabet execs hinted that their autonomous driving technology is approaching its graduation from Google’s X “moonshots” division, a new rumor says that Google might already be in late-stage talks with Fiat Chrysler.

Look, not everyone needs a top-of-the-line tablet, OK? Sure some people always want to have the latest and greatest tech, and they’re willing to spend $500, $600 or even more to get it. But if you’re looking for a simple tablet to browse the web, play some games and stream Netflix on the go, you’ll be shocked at how little you need to spend.
Here’s a great example: From now through the end of the day on Saturday, April 30, the Acer Iconia One 8 Tablet is just $82 shipped from Amazon. More →
Not too long ago, we found out why Marvel decided to cut a post-credit scene from Captain America: Civil War. But don’t plan on hurrying out of the theater once the credits start rolling. Relax, chat with friends, as there’s one more thing coming. Sure, it won’t be Hulk or Bruce Banner in it, but we’ll see at least one of the superheroes appear in the post-credits scenes in this Captain America flick. Spoilers follow below. More →
People can definitely hurt themselves while riding around on the trendy little “hoverboards” you see everywhere these days, but we doubt anyone would consider them to be particularly dangerous devices. They don’t travel at very high speeds and if you fall off one, you’re likely looking at a tiny bruise or a sprain at worst. Of course, that assumes you’re riding around on the ground and not on the roof of a 656-foot-tall skyscraper. More →
With iPhone sales down, perhaps temporarily, Apple CEO Tim Cook indicated during the company’s earnings conference call this week that Apple is always on the look out for exciting new technologies and companies to acquire. Not only that, Cook suggested that Apple would be willing to shell out big bucks for a blockbuster acquisition if the right opportunity arose.
We’re always looking in the market about things that could complement things that we do today, become features in something we do, or allow us to accelerate entry into a category that we’re excited about,” Cook explained. Later on, Cook added that Apple “would definitely buy something larger than we bought thus far.”
Some games require a great deal of effort to complete. Whether its their length, their difficulty or their complexity, games like Dark Souls, Spelunky and Dota 2 are best known for driving players crazy as they attempt to fight their way through increasingly lopsided battles, find every potential pitfall and learn the best matchups.
But some games can’t be beat simply because the developers never finished them.
If the months preceding the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens were any indication, we’re never going to know much about the upcoming Star Wars movies before they hit theaters. The same was true of Rogue One, even after we saw the first trailer, but star Mads Mikkelsen might have just given one big spoiler away.
The home theater of your dreams is, well, very expensive. Sometimes you don’t really need all that top-of-the-line gear to create a theater-like movie watching experience in your home though, as long as you know where to cut corners without sacrificing too much. And right now, we’re going to tell you where to start.
From now until the end of the day on Saturday, the Acer H5380BD 720p Home Theater Projector is on sale on Amazon for $350 with free Prime shipping. More →
Following the deadly assaults on Europe in late 2015 and early 2016, reports emerged suggesting that ISIS has an army of organized hackers who can provide consistent, round the clock support to foot soldiers. However, new information on the matter seems to suggest that ISIS’s remaining hacking arm is nothing more than a propaganda machine capable of dealing minor hits, if any, to enemies. But ISIS is showing more interest in expanding its hacking capabilities.
The news comes at a time when the U.S. government has declared cyber war on the Islamic paramilitary organization.
It’s a shame that video game consoles have grown so large that carrying them to a friend’s house no longer feels like a reasonable option. You’re not going to throw your Xbox One in a backpack the way you did with your Nintendo 64 or PS1 20 years ago, which makes local multiplayer even more obsolete than it already was.
Thankfully, with AirConsole, all you need is a computer and a smartphone — two things nearly everyone carries around — to jump into a multiplayer game.
Multiple reports have said that Google is already working hard on a couple of new Nexus handsets, undoubtedly the successors of the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. But rather than have LG and Huawei make them, Google supposedly hired HTC, the same company that made the iconic Nexus One.
A pair of new reports bring further evidence that Google may indeed partner with HTC for the 2016 Nexus handsets – yes, two devices are supposedly in the works.
Add comedian Aziz Ansari to the long list of people who don’t like Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump. The former Parcs & Rec and current Master of None star appeared surprised last night to hear that Trump was attending the Time 100 Gala in New York City – or at least he acted surprised. Ansari’s short response to the news was hilarious, showing that he’s not too fond of a guy who might have it out for Ansari’s parents.
