2016 BMW 750i xDrive Review

2016 BMW 750i xDrive Review

How do you review a luxury cruise liner or a private jet? Certainly not from the captain's bridge or the pilot's seat. So it goes with the 2016 BMW 750i xDrive, the latest long-wheelbase expression of the German brand's flagship, a technological tour-de-force that centers the spotlight on those few lucky enough to be able to afford not only a six-figure sedan, but also a driver to go with it.

iPhone SE Review – Classic Remix

Did you love the iPhone 5s and rue the day Apple switched from crisp edges to comely curves on the iPhone 6? You'll probably approve of the iPhone SE, then, which goes excavating in the graveyard of Apple's design labs and comes up with a barely-changed riff on the classic.

Revealed: This is the Tesla Model 3

Revealed: This is the Tesla Model 3

This is it - the "mass market" electric car that Tesla has been promising and teasing since Elon Musk & Co. decided to shake up the auto industry. Undercutting the current Tesla line-up by tens of thousands, and opening the door to EV ownership with that coveted badge - and the promise of the rapidly-evolving technology behind it - to a whole new cohort of drivers, to say the Model 3 is anticipated is to understate it considerably.

The big questions the Tesla Model 3 needs to answer today

If Tesla is the Apple of the auto industry, then today's big reveal of the Model 3 is the equivalent of the iPhone 7 keynote. Elon Musk & Co.'s plans for an affordable electric car more suited to the needs - and bank balance - of the mass market have been ticking away in the background for some time now, but it's only today, at an event at its facility in Los Angeles, CA, that we'll get the first clear sight of the fruits of those efforts.

Where is VR’s killer, must-play game?

In the last few months I've spent a fair amount of time in virtual reality. I've played a bunch of games which are really fun, used several interesting apps, and experienced other forms of non-interactive entertainment. Personally, I'm sold on the technology, and I'm excited to see where it goes in the future. However, I'm in the minority of people.

August Doorbell Cam Review

August Doorbell Cam Review

Home security is one of the cornerstones of the Internet of Things, and seeing who is at the door - and then optionally letting them in - is a growing market. August is following up its popular Smart Lock with the August Doorbell Cam, a handsome WiFi-connected streaming video camera which gives you a sneaky eye on the front door frame. At $199, though, before you've even bought the Smart Lock, it's not a cheap upgrade for your home security, but does the convenience make it worth it?
