Pokemon GO Cheats and Tips : catch em all (almost) every time

Pokemon GO Cheats and Tips : catch em all (almost) every time

The modern equivalent to holding down arrow + B in Pokemon GO appears to have been found. Users that used to hold their down-arrow down and press B, or spam B, or any combination of buttons when their Pokeball was first tossed, should rejoice today. This "cheat" as some might call it has to do with animations. Each Pokemon has a series of animations they're capable of doing when they're face to face with a user with a Pokeball - we're looking for "Happy."

An impassioned defense of the 2016 Lexus GS F, a car misunderstood

An impassioned defense of the 2016 Lexus GS F, a car misunderstood

I cannot, rationally, say that you ought to buy the 2016 Lexus GS F, but I hope that a least one or two of you does. It has its share of hurdles, I know, like the love-it-or-hate-it design, not to mention the price. At $84,440 - rising, with the 17-speaker, 835W Mark Levinson audio system (which you really, really want), plus the fancy blue mica paint and a trunk mat, along with delivery, to $87,470 in total - this isn't just a lot to pay for a Lexus, it's a lot to pay for any luxury performance four-door.

Pokemon GO: Five places you should avoid playing

With Pokemon GO launching in yet another region today - welcome to the party, Japan! - I thought it might be a good time to remind everyone that even though Pokemon fever is still running strong, there is still a time and a place for Pokemon hunting. To be a little more specific, there are a few places you should avoid playing at all costs, no matter how strong the temptation is.

Dyson V8 Absolute Review: A cordless masterclass in suction

Dyson V8 Absolute Review: A cordless masterclass in suction

No home appliance manufacturer inspires outspoken brand loyalty quite like Dyson, but it's taken the British company several tries to get cordless vacuum cleaners right. Latest to the showroom is the Dyson V8 Absolute, a decidedly premium way to cut the cord as you vanquish dust, dirt, and animal hair, with the promise of the sort of efficacy you'd hitherto require a traditional upright vacuum to achieve. Question is, has Dyson delivered enough to warrant its $600 sticker?

2017 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Review – Turbo all the things

2017 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Review – Turbo all the things

Brand purists are simultaneously the best and worst buyers a car company can have flocking to its showrooms, and few automakers understand this better than Porsche. While it's an ego boost to have a loyal group of followers celebrating your heritage, that same cohort can turn on you in a heartbeat should it feel that the march of progress has in some way desecrated the traditions that they hold most dear. Still, this hasn't kept the German sport car builder from pushing past the boundaries of its own illustrious past, first with front-engine V8s (the 928), then while swapping air-cooled sixes for modern water-cooled designs (the 996), and now by going all-in on the turbo zeitgeist with the 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera.

Tesla’s ‘Master Plan’ part 2: solar, self-driving, and sharing

Tesla’s ‘Master Plan’ part 2: solar, self-driving, and sharing

As promised earlier today, Elon Musk has posted about Tesla’s master plan (part 2). If you’re unfamiliar with the first part of that master plan, check it out here. Got the gist of it? Musk explains the rationale behind the original master plan, pointing out that it was largely shaped by the limitations of the funding behind it at the start. The automaker has proven successful since then, though, and with that success comes an evolution of its goals. In the second iteration of his Master Plan, Musk zeroes in a handful of new plans including solar energy, vehicle sharing, and autonomous driving.

How Gorilla Glass 5 made surviving everyday phone drops the priority

How Gorilla Glass 5 made surviving everyday phone drops the priority

It's a fact of life that, as smartphones have got bigger, slimmer, and more slippery, you're increasingly likely to drop them while playing Pokemon GO and smash the display. Corning can't stop you from getting over-excited at the sight of a wild Pikachu, but it does have a new version of its toughened glass, Gorilla Glass 5, which promises even greater resilience to being dropped on the next generation of smartphones and other devices.

Will car-sharing and self-driving cars kill congestion? It’s not so simple

Will car-sharing and self-driving cars kill congestion? It’s not so simple

Car sharing and autonomous vehicles are widely expected to cut road congestion, but the future for drivers may not be so clear cut, according to two new studies released this week. The impact of alternatives to individual car ownership is still fairly uncertain, particularly as the long-term market viability of self-driving vehicles remains mired in legal, ethical, and technological questions, with the potential for traffic jams to initially get worse, not better.

Pokemon GO is down today: here’s what to do

When you find yourself on the wrong end of a Niantic server, you'll be unable to log in to Pokemon GO. When that happens, you'll want to follow the steps we've got below, starting with a calm approach toward learning more about the game instead of hammering the login button. What's great about Pokemon GO is that you aren't going to find yourself monumentally behind your best pals when you're logged out - mostly because they'll be logged out, too. We're all in this together!

2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith Review – Leave the chauffeur at home

2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith Review – Leave the chauffeur at home

The 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith is something of an outlier for the British luxury brand - it’s the Rolls you drive yourself, rather than enjoy from the more traditional perspective of the rear seat. Past that, however, it's also a car that intends to make your time behind the wheel a bit more engaging than what your chauffeur would experience piloting the four-door Ghost sedan on which the Wraith is based. Either way, after driving this two-door behemoth in and around Montreal, there's one thing I can state without reservation: regardless of where you're sitting, being inside the Rolls-Royce Wraith is an event in and of itself.

2017 Infiniti QX30 First-Drive

2017 Infiniti QX30 First-Drive

The 2017 Infiniti QX30 is Japanese designed, built in post-Brexit Britain, with German parts and engineering, and packaged for crossover-loving America: if that doesn't earn it the title of a "global car", I'm not sure what would. Taking over the reins of guiding new-to-brand buyers into the Infiniti family from the now-deceased G-series sedan, the QX30 arrives with high ambitions indeed, proudly setting its sights on the small, luxury crossovers from BMW and Audi.
