2017 Volvo S90 first-drive – Sweden declares war

2017 Volvo S90 first-drive – Sweden declares war

Volvo may be too laid back to call out its German rivals, but make no mistake, the 2017 S90 is a serious gauntlet thrown down in the midsize luxury segment. Determined to prove the XC90 was no fluke, and instead the first step in an aggressive full-range refresh, the 2017 Volvo S90 takes much of its SUV cousin's charm and condenses it into a form-factor better suited to take on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5 Series.

Here’s What 3 Hot Laps Will Tell You About Ford’s Fastest Mustang

Here’s What 3 Hot Laps Will Tell You About Ford’s Fastest Mustang

Before I ruffle too many feathers by calling the 2016 Mustang Shelby GT350R Ford’s fastest ‘stang yet, let me set some parameters. Was the 2013 Shelby GT500 with 662hp quicker to 60 mph and through a quarter-mile? Yes. Could that car out-maneuver the GT350R? Not a chance. Set those two vehicles against one another around any non-oval track in the world and the GT350 would spank its sibling.

The time is right for Xbox One and PS4 cross-play

The time is right for Xbox One and PS4 cross-play

Not long after Microsoft and Sony released their latest consoles, South Park did three episodes centered around the consoles (and they were a great parody on Game of Thrones, to boot). The episodes touched on a problem that gamers have faced since online gaming took off during the previous console generation. Namely, the decision of which popular console to choose.

2017 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet and 4S first drive

2017 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet and 4S first drive

The Porsche 911 is not the car for everyone, whether it’s the design or the price, but Porsche is okay with that. A mainstay of the sports segment for decades, it’s the benchmark by which serious drivers - and the automakers trying to sell them similarly seriously-driving cars - judge on-road experience. That means big boots to fill when it comes to a new model, something Porsche knows all too well as it launches the 2017 Carrera S Cabriolet and Carrera 4S Coupe.

2016 BMW M2 Review: The ‘M’ Stands For ‘Fun’

2016 BMW M2 Review: The ‘M’ Stands For ‘Fun’

There's a set of roads I grew up on, far from the metropolitan sidewalks and boulevards that currently serve as the boundary markers in my adopted city. The kind of asphalt seemingly drawn on the map by a pendulum suspended in the passenger seat of a WRC car blasting full-tilt down an alpine rally stage. They served as my nursery when I first started driving, teaching me the fundamentals of opposite lock, car control, and how to call my father at 2 a.m. to come tow me out of an icy ditch. A natural, then, for exercising the all-new 2016 BMW M2, the latest addition to the German brand's growing stable of M-badged performance vehicles.

Switchmate Review – The easiest IoT light upgrade ever

Switchmate Review – The easiest IoT light upgrade ever

If embracing the smart home has a common first step, it's often remotely-controlled lights, but that can be an expensive, time-consuming, or technical upgrade. Wireless bulbs switch out for their dumb cousins, but equipping every lamp can get expensive; swapping dumb wall switches for wireless versions looks clean but requires screwdrivers and dealing with mains electricity, not to mention potentially incurring landlord wrath. Step forward Switchmate, then, with an alternative that's up and running in mere minutes.

What smartwatches are still getting wrong

What smartwatches are still getting wrong

It's been more than three years since the first modern commercial smartwatches, the Pebble and the Sony SmartWatch, hit the market and this wearable device category still hasn't taken the industry by storm. In the meantime, less powerful and less featured smart fitness bands are flooding the market and is giving some well-deserved and long overdue attention to healthier lifestyles (at least hopefully). These two device categories sometimes share some features, like notifications and activity tracking. Sometimes they even share in price tags. And yet smarwatches aren't regarded with the same esteem and market share as their health-centric cousins. The issue might not just be because smartwatches answer the problems wrong. They might also be answering the wrong problems.

Overwatch’s Super Bans are great news for (non-cheating) gamers

Overwatch’s Super Bans are great news for (non-cheating) gamers

Nothing takes the fun out of an online game like cheaters. It's one thing to take on opponents that are simply much better than you at the game. That gives you incentive to work hard, practice, and get better. But if you run into players that don't take damage, seem to headshot from across the map, and can see through walls, you aren't going to have any fun. Blizzard knows this, and that's why they're making sure that cheaters don't ruin Overwatch.
