Happy Hydrogen: Up close with Toyota’s 2015 FCV

Happy Hydrogen: Up close with Toyota’s 2015 FCV

Toyota isn't quite full of hot air with its latest car, but it's not far off. The Toyota FCV relies on hydrogen - a gas, but not gasoline - for its get-up-and-go, and though the commercial release isn't expected until next year, that hasn't stopped the new sedan from starting a quiet tour in eco-conscious California. It brought along some old friends, too, including one of the SUVs Toyota first used to prove the fuel-cell technology would work.

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Review: Bigger is Better

These aren't just your old iPhone made bigger, however: a combination of broad hardware improvements and iOS 8 makes sure of that. Question is, does bigger mean better, or has Apple lost its legendary ease of use in the process? Read on for my full review.

Moto X (2014) Review: Finally, a true Motorola flagship

Moto X (2014) Review: Finally, a true Motorola flagship

Motorola never quite got the praise it deserved with the original Moto X, the company's decision to step off the specs bandwagon unduly masked by relatively uninspiring design. Now, the 2014 model arrives to rectify that, sharing the same name but stepping up performance, aesthetics, and - essential for any device with ambitions to play among the flagships - build quality. Has the Moto X finally got the balance right? Read on for our full review.

Moto 360 Review: Flawed Charm

Moto 360 Review: Flawed Charm

The Moto 360 has a lot to live up to. Motorola's wearable spoiled our first taste of Android Wear smartwatches back in July, leaving the first square-faced examples to run the platform looking hopelessly geeky in comparison. Arguably the closest to a regular watch in design we've seen so far, and - though the Apple Watch may respectfully disagree - quite possibly the most handsome, the Moto 360 certainly has the style box ticked, but is that enough to earn a place on the wrist?

Meet Jimmy, the robot pal to put Intel’s Edison in your home

The idea of domestic robots isn't new, but Intel and Trossen Robotics are aiming to make it actually happen with the 3D-printed Jimmy powered by the chip firm's new Edison development board. Trossen has been offering the original Jimmy for some time now, a $16,000 'bot powered by an Intel Core i5 chip, but its new little brother - the HR-OS1 - promises to come in at a tenth of the price and, so the theory goes, open up the space to those who aren't adept at robotics programming.

Lenovo N20P Chromebook Review

Lenovo N20P Chromebook Review

Lenovo's new ThinkPad Yoga 11e Chromebook isn't the company's only Chrome OS machine, and latest to the batch is its new N20P Chromebook. Unlike the 11e, the N20P isn't styled after the company's famous all-black ThinkPad notebooks, instead sporting a smooth gray body and lid. What we ultimately get is a Chromebook quite a bit thinner than the aforementioned model, and no less powerful. Read the full SlashGear Review for all the details.

Dell’s 6mm thick camera-loaded tablet is IDF’s secret star

Dell’s 6mm thick camera-loaded tablet is IDF’s secret star

Intel’s IDF wasn’t where we expected to find an incredible Android tablet, but Dell quietly knocked it out the park with the Venue 8 7000, a brand new slate using RealSense depth-sensing camera technology. An 8.4-inch alternative to the iPad mini with Retina display and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4, the Dell tablet has a surprise on both sides: a fantastic 2560 x 1600 OLED touchscreen on the front, and a trio of cameras on the back.
