Audi talks autonomous EV charging and 150 kW for e-tron quattro

Audi's electrification plans include self-driving tech, with engineers developing an e-tron EV that can automatically trundle to its charger, Roomba-style. The upcoming Audi e-tron quattro - currently a concept but set to spawn a production version in 2018 - will be the German automaker's most serious all-electric vehicle so far, opening the door to a number of cutting edge charging technologies intended to make EV ownership more straightforward.

Man vs Machine: My rematch against Audi’s new self-driving RS 7

Man vs Machine: My rematch against Audi’s new self-driving RS 7

Last year, I beat Audi's autonomous race car on the track. Robots might not have feelings, but that didn't stop Audi's engineers calling me back for a re-match with the latest, greatest version of the self-driving RS7s. AJ, Bobby, Jack, and now Robby all have two things in common: first, they’re named after famous race car drivers, and second, they've successfully driven autonomously on racetracks, on the autobahn, and on a cross country trip.

Let Friends guide you through Facebook’s new “take a break” feature

Let Friends guide you through Facebook’s new “take a break” feature

The social network Facebook is testing a feature which would assist users in the present to see less of their significant others from the past. The feature is called "Take a Break", and, like taking a break in real life, it lists a number of "changes" you can make to the features on your Facebook account. One example of this is seeing less of the person who you've ended a relationship with. As Facebook Product Manager and someone we must assume is a Friends fan Kelly Winters suggests, "When people change their relationship status to indicate they are no longer in a relationship, they will be prompted to try these tools."

Google’s mobile future is in App Streaming

Google’s mobile future is in App Streaming

Google's next big play for the mobile universe (with Android, for now) is in the ability to stream an app instead of downloading it to your device. Instead of downloading an app to book a hotel, for instance, then tossing the app away after you're done with your vacation, Google wants you to stream it. You'll see the app pretty much the same way you'd see any other app, but all of its content will be hosted on the internet.

YouTube Music: Reviewing the basics

YouTube Music: Reviewing the basics

Today we're having a look at the basic features of YouTube Music. After a few days of using the service, we'll return with judgement - for now, it's all about discussing what you're able to do. Is YouTube Music worth the price you pay for YouTube Red? Sort of - incidentally you don't need to pay for YouTube Red to get many of the most awesome parts of YouTube Music. We're anticipating that point will be a bit confusing for users (at first). Google's prompts should do the trick once they're inside the app.

Google AboutMe is your info placard for the public

Google AboutMe is your info placard for the public

Google appears to have torn another feature from Google+ with "Google AboutMe," a public place for your "About" information. Here you'll place your personal contact info, work contact info, Education and Work History, Places you live and have lived, Gender, Birthday, Occupation, and a list of sites where you contribute content or participate in social networks. At this time, it would appear that this system is not entirely separate from Google+ (it still has the Google Plus-centric "Circles"), but as with Google Photos, it certainly could be.

TAG Heuer Connected watch revealed – aimed directly at Apple

The folks at TAG Heuer have revealed a smartwatch that runs Google's Android Wear software. Inside you'll find Google's software - very similar to the software you'll find on devices like the Moto 360 and the Huawei Watch, while on the outside you'll find luxury hardware the likes of which are only otherwise delivered with a far more expensive piece of equipment. This is the first time an Android Wear watch has been released by a manufacturer that hadn't previously released any devices with Android onboard.
