My Days of Thunder with the 2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus

Tom Cruise in Days of Thunder left a long-lasting impression. That was 1990 when I was a young lad of 14. Fast forward to the present day and I survived my own day of thunder at the Daytona International Speedway, driving the 2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus at ridiculous speeds and – through a combination of car and maybe luck - living to tell the tale.

Fix Dark Souls III crashing issues with these tips

This is the big week for Dark Souls fans here in the US. While the game has been out in Japan for a little while already, the rest of the world is only just now getting access to the game. And so far, it's proving to be a far more difficult challenge than the previous two games, although for very different reasons.

This is the HTC 10: First Impressions

This is the HTC 10: First Impressions

HTC had stopped listening, but it learned its lesson with the new HTC 10. Back in 2013 HTC unveiled the flagship One M7, and was widely praised for its unibody design, purposefully different approach to phone photography, and overall user-experience. In trying to keep up with the ever-present threat of Apple's iPhone and the increasingly polished - and heavily promoted - Samsung Galaxy line, though, HTC lost its way.

HTC 10 inbound: here’s what we know so far

HTC 10 inbound: here’s what we know so far

In little less than 24 hours, HTC will be fully revealing its smartphone hand. Given its history in the market, its new grab for the virtual reality industry, and its unstable coffers, both fans and detractors, market watchers included, are keeping tabs on how that next champion will turn out. Believed to be christened as the HTC 10, dropping the almost iconic "One" brand, the smartphone is expected to present an intriguing mix of features, and perhaps misfeatures, that will surely be the talk of the town for the next few days. But what does HTC have in store for us? This is what we know or have heard of so far.

The 2016 BMW 650i xDrive Gran Coupe is the 6 Series to have

The 2016 BMW 650i xDrive Gran Coupe is the 6 Series to have

Once you accept the conceit that a 'coupe' is simply a styling concept and not a rigid term that's been co-opted to describe the number of doors grafted on to a given automobile, it becomes much easier to navigate the world of German luxury. The 2016 BMW 650i xDrive Gran Coupe simply has more arms to hold you than the more traditional 6 Series coupe we reviewed earlier this year, and in the world of premium cars, more is always better.

It's been far too long since we've been able to play as The Hero of Time (or some other iteration of the character).

Tesla’s going to leapfrog rivals with Model 3 Autopilot

Tesla’s going to leapfrog rivals with Model 3 Autopilot

Tesla's Model 3 could take pole position in a new breed of near-autonomous vehicles, with the EV debuting a new generation of sensors perfect for real-time crowdsourced data. The upcoming car - which is shaping up to be Tesla's most popular to-date, with over 325,000 people coughing up a $1,000 deposit to stake a spot on the reservations list - is the prime candidate for a new, lower-cost sensor array developed by Tesla hardware supplier Mobileye that's said to offer autonomous intelligence hitherto the realm of R&D labs, but at a fraction of what current hardware costs.

Senator Franken calls out Oculus over privacy concerns

Senator Franken calls out Oculus over privacy concerns

Just yesterday I wrote a piece regarding the Terms and Conditions that every Oculus Rift user has to agree to. In those Terms and Conditions were a few parts that had some users concerned, as the guys at UploadVR found when they went digging through it. These were primarily related to data that would be collected, and potentially shared with other companies, such as Facebook. Well today, Senator Al Franken has sent a letter addressed to Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe to address some of those concerns.

We go Electric Racing at the Formula E Long Beach ePrix

We go Electric Racing at the Formula E Long Beach ePrix

It's not easy to give birth to a brand new global racing series. It's even harder when you're bucking the trend of nearly 100 years of motorsports by leaving the roar of internal combustion behind in favor of embracing the future of electric mobility. Formula E, now in its second season, juxtaposes the familiar open-wheel format with avant-guard battery-powered drivetrains, and in the process flips much of the established racing order on its ear.

Amazon Tap Review – Alexa’s not listening

Amazon Tap Review – Alexa’s not listening

Amazon landed with a splash in the smart home space, the Echo smart speaker opening our eyes to the potential of voice control, and Alexa hasn't stopped accelerating since. Now Echo has a baby sibling, Amazon Tap, a Bluetooth speaker that allows you to take Alexa on the move with you. At $129.99 it's fifty bucks cheaper than Echo, not to mention untethered from an outlet, though there have been some compromises made along the way.

Oculus “may” use data for advertising, but when?

Oculus “may” use data for advertising, but when?

When it was announced that Facebook would be purchasing Oculus, it gave a lot of people pause. I certainly didn't see that move coming, but over time it slowly made more and more sense. After all, VR can be used for a lot more than just playing video games. It can be a great way to interact with other people, which is what Facebook is all about. Of course, Facebook is also about making money through advertising, which has caused some concern over the last few days.

Plantronics Voyager 5200 Review – A headset for the unpredictable

The Bluetooth headset might not be the first accessory you think of when considering the "extreme" lifestyle, but Plantronics believes you're missing out.
