Last week, Nintendo dropped a bombshell when it announced that it would only bring one playable game to E3 2016. In previous years, Nintendo has had dozens of demo stations for upcoming 3DS and Wii U games, but this year, The Legend of Zelda for Wii U will be the only Nintendo game on the show floor.
There’s no getting around it: the first-gen Apple Watch leaves a lot to be desired. Not only can Apple’s wearable be painfully slow at times, its user interface could stand to be much more intuitive. Whereas anyone could pick up a first-gen iPhone and intuitively figure out how it works, the Apple Watch requires a bit of a (frustrating) learning curve.
What’s more, even the most ardent of Apple Watch supporters would have to concede that the device is not the revolutionary game-changer many people were anticipating in the weeks and months prior to its unveiling. Additionally, Apple has been uncharacteristically quiet about cumulative iPhone sales. Taken together, all the factors above have contributed to an increasingly popular narrative that would have you believe that the Apple Watch is a complete flop and nothing more than a failure indicative of the fact that Apple’s ability to innovate likely vanished the day Steve Jobs died.
The reality, however, is much more nuanced. In short, the success of the iPhone and the iPad have saddled subsequent Apple products with wholly unrealistic expectations. A revolutionary product like the iPhone is truly a once in a lifetime device, yet that unfairly remains the barometer by which the Apple Watch is being judged.
Amazon’s line of Kindle e-readers is the best in the business, hands down. We’re not just talking about the new high-end Kindle Oasis that Amazon introduced, either. From top to bottom, Amazon’s Kindles offer great portability, visibility and affordability. Of course, Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablets offer the same great value with functionality that extends well beyond e-book reading, offering all sorts of great apps, games and more.
The company’s lineup of tablets and e-readers is always a terrific value, but right now there are six different models on sale through the end of the day on Saturday, May 7, somehow offering you an even better value than they normally do. Check them all out below. More →

Elon Musk is nothing if not dedicated, and busy. Not only is he the CEO of two giant companies, but each company – SpaceX and Tesla – is quite literally focused on changing the world. With respect to Tesla, things at the California-based company have never been busier. The Model S just got a refresh, production on the Model X is ramping up, Model 3 reservations are in the 400,000 range, and construction is ongoing on the company’s Nevada Gigafactory.
With so much on his plate, Musk revealed during Tesla’s earnings conference call yesterday that his desk is currently positioned at the end of the Model X production line at Tesla’s Fremont, California factory. And because he’s there so frequently, often overnight, Musk also added that he also keeps a sleeping bag handy so that he can rest comfortably when he doesn’t have time to go home and then back in the morning.

This isn’t how I wanted to begin this review, but I think it’s important to get it out of the way as quickly as possible: the Uncharted series has never done much for me.
I’ve been in awe of the visuals and appreciated the storytelling chops of the writers, but the action on screen was so often at odds with the plot that I could never really find a foothold into the world that Naughty Dog had created.
Although it has its fair share of contradictions as well, Uncharted 4 is the first game in the series that has really hooked me, and now I’m finally starting to see what I imagine everyone else saw when Uncharted hit the PS3 in 2007.

Tesla received a record number of preorders for the affordable Model 3 electric car, but buyers will have to wait more than a year to get their hands on it. Tesla recently said that preorder numbers reached the 400,000 units mark, yet the company will produce less than 90,000 total Tesla cars this year.
Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk said on Wednesday during the company’s earnings call that Tesla will likely miss the first Model 3 production deadline. The statement came just minutes after Musk set the deadline. More →
It’s not just the FBI that has the technical ability to unlock password-protected iPhones without triggering kill-switch mechanisms – all without any help from Apple. LAPD can also hack into certain iPhones. The FBI cracked the San Bernardino iPhone 5c, and the LAPD hacked an iPhone 5s belonging to the wife of The Shield actor Michael Jace.
