2016 Volvo XC90 first-drive – Scandinavia on wheels

Nordic noir has invaded our television and our bookshelves, and now Volvo wants to do the same for luxury SUVs with the all-new 2016 XC90. As many companies, automotive and otherwise have discovered, throwing money at a problem isn’t necessarily the best way to fix it. Nonetheless, it helps to have deep pockets when you’re tasked with completely reinventing your line-up, and Volvo has spent over $11bn since it was sold to Geely in 2010 and began to rebuild its range from the ground up. Now, we’re getting a taste of what that money bought, and like moody Scandinavian detectives, it turns out to be complicated.

Moshi VersaCover review; origami cool for the iPad

Apple loves aluminum, and glass, and combining the two forms some very beautiful — and fragile — mobile devices. Their iPad lineup is among the more delicate, and with a large surface areas and thin profile, we tend to have trouble not scratching or busting them up.

It also pinches some of Amazon’s cool we loved with the Fire Tablet's cover.

This version, it would seem, comes with two USB-C ports instead of one lightning port.
