The 2016 Ram 1500 takes on 3 Pickup Rivals in Full-Size Truck showdown

The 2016 Ram 1500 takes on 3 Pickup Rivals in Full-Size Truck showdown

The 2016 Ram 1500 sits comfortably in third position on the full-size pickup sales charts, but don't be deceived: this is one of the most innovative trucks currently on the market. Unlike the Ford F-150, which has dominated the segment for decades, Ram has had to mount a comprehensive strategy that gives pickup buyers features they simply can't find in any other truck in order to lure customers to dealerships - and it's working.

Pixel Android UI expands beyond displays in next-gen Google VR

Pixel Android UI expands beyond displays in next-gen Google VR

Google's next move with Android looks beyond the display of the smartphone and expands on in to the virtual realm. Right off the side of the screen goes the user interface, buttons, controllers and all, in a series of images made public by the USPTO after submission from Google earlier this year. These images show the future of Google's VR initiatives - Cardboard, Daydream, and the rest. Inside is not just virtual reality, but augmented reality, and mixed reality as well.

2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack First Drive: Almost-SUV fills in VW’s gaps

2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack First Drive: Almost-SUV fills in VW’s gaps

Volkswagen is an automaker in transition, and the 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack is a harbinger of things to come. With Americans tilting inexorably towards crossovers and SUVs as their conveyance of choice, and faced with a line-up heavily weighted with turbodiesel sedans and hatchbacks that the EPA has placed on indefinite hiatus, VW's market makeover is only just beginning. The Golf Alltrack's wagon-based, crossover-friendly image heralds an SUV onslaught that will continue through the next 12 months as an all-new three-row people mover and long-awaited replacement for the slow-selling Tiguan compact sport-utility also make their way to showrooms.

Pokemon GO Plus Review : Great for one thing

Pokemon GO Plus Review : Great for one thing

Today the Pokemon GO Plus has arrived in physical GameStop stores and online through Amazon and, again, Gamestop. Our review here is going to be brief - in part because we've only been working with the device for a very short time. Because the device is so extremely simple, only a short amount of time was necessary, really - we're already confident that we know whether or not the Pokemon Trainers of the world should partake in this $35 piece of hardware right out the gate.

iPhone 7 Release Day reports clash

iPhone 7 Release Day reports clash

This morning Apple Stores around the world opened their doors to let in lines of potential iPhone 7 buyers galore. Or that's what would have happened if the internet somehow didn't exist and users hadn't already pre-ordered their devices over the past week. As it is, reports are coming in from the UK, NYC, and etcetera, as Apple Stores let in users that can't help but wait for the UPS or FedEx truck to arrive, picking their devices up in-person instead. In places long Hong Kong, Australia, and NYC, lines remain.

Return your Galaxy Note 7 NOW, immediately, post-haste

Return your Galaxy Note 7 NOW, immediately, post-haste

Over the past couple of weeks, Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 has been the subject of some controversy regarding its potential to burst into flames. The defect responsible for this blunder seems to be rare - sort of. Not rare enough that all Galaxy Note 7 units have been banned from public use, but rare enough. Rare enough that we were shocked when we found, just this week, that not every Samsung Galaxy Note 7 user had taken the time to turn their first-run device in for a new one.

2017 Audi Q7 3.0T quattro Review: Seven seat excess

2017 Audi Q7 3.0T quattro Review: Seven seat excess

If there's something clearly pathological about my attraction to vast, luxury SUVs despite having neither the family nor the lifestyle to demand them, I can probably take solace in the fact that a large chunk of America feels the same way. Audi's 2017 Q7 will do nothing to dissuade either them or I, redesigned from the ground up from its strong-selling predecessor and making a pitch as the most technologically advanced SUV this side of a considerably more expensive Tesla Model X.

Moto G4 Play Review : Another Entry-Level Hit

Moto G4 Play Review : Another Entry-Level Hit

The latest in Lenovo's Moto G collection of devices is the "Play" of the G4 (2016) generation. This means the Moto G4 Play is the least of the pack, least impressive and least costly, too. Today we're going to judge whether this device is worth the cash it costs - and for whom this device would be ideal. This device looks and feels extremely similar to its closest relatives, the Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus.

There are still more questions than answers about the Chevrolet Bolt EV

There are still more questions than answers about the Chevrolet Bolt EV

It was a moment of celebration for one of the American auto industry's stalwarts: the Chevrolet Bolt EV would, at 238 miles, go further than Elon Musk's upstart Tesla Model 3. Cue flag-waving in Detroit, not least because the Bolt EV is expected to arrive at dealerships later this year, versus the late 2017 promised for the "cheap" Tesla. Nonetheless, while the early feedback has been fairly glowing from drivers given previews at the electric car's wheel, there's still a lot Chevrolet has to do before the Bolt EV is anywhere near ready for primetime.

2017 Cadillac XT5 Review – This is no mini Escalade

2017 Cadillac XT5 Review – This is no mini Escalade

As a Brit who harbors a dark, some might say unnatural love for Cadillac's Escalade, I'm used to wearing my perversions on my sleeve, but I may be immune to the charms of the 2017 Cadillac XT5. Though sharp styling and clever all-wheel drive are welcome, as is an impressively high quality cabin that in most respects punches above its weight, there's the all-important question of that magic spark that true love requires.

iPhone 7 Review Round-up: 7 Plus Cameras, Jacks, and Jet Black

iPhone 7 Review Round-up: 7 Plus Cameras, Jacks, and Jet Black

One collection of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus Reviews have been dropped this morning, and they appear - for the most part - to be positive. While it would appear that the tech review industry isn't entirely sold on the idea that they'll have to change habits to accommodate the lack of a headphone jack, and the Jet Black finish seems to be a bit more "scratchy" than they'd hoped, both devices seem to deliver on Apple's promise of a top-quality smartphone.
