BMW i8S and hotter i8 duo tipped to turn up EV power

BMW i8S and hotter i8 duo tipped to turn up EV power

BMW's i8 hybrid sportscar is tipped to be in line for a power boost, with the Germany company said to have earmarked the eco-friendly coupe for an upgrade to both parts of its powertrain. Distinctively designed both inside and out, the current BMW i8 musters 357 HP and 450 lb-ft of torque from its combination of a three-cylinder gas engine and an electric motor. However, according to industry whispers, both of those are going to be replaced with more powerful versions - among other changes - in a hotter, more focused version, and it may only be the start of BMW's scheming.

Fitbit Surge leak reveals “superwatch” aspirations

Fitbit Surge leak reveals “superwatch” aspirations

After a disastrous and embarrassing episode with the recalled Force wristband, Fitbit is unsurprisingly going to make a bigger, in a positive way, splash. Early last week we saw leaks that pointed to two new products coming soon, the Flex lookalike Charge and Charge HR. Apparently, Fitbit isn't done yet. The latest word is that the fitness company actually has a third member in the new batch, equally ambiguously named the Fitbit Surge. This "superwatch", as the leaks claim Fitbit calls it, throws in everything except the kitchen sink.

Whisper lashes out over “vicious lies” about user tracking

With every information breach that happens involving government surveillance, one thing become increasingly clear: privacy is often an illusion, at least when it comes to your digital life. Whisper is one app that operates under that privacy illusion, at least according to The Guardian, which posted a large piece today calling out the company for what it says are numerous privacy violations, including handing information over to the government and tracking some users. Now Whisper has fired back, lashing out at The Guardian and calling the claims "vicious lies".

Apple slips up, leaks iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3

Apple slips up, leaks iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3

So, hey — there’s an Apple event tomorrow. We’ve been speculating, like everyone else, that a few new iPads were coming. Typically, that’s just chatter until Apple reveals what they’ve got for us, which usually comes via their announcement. No matter how convincing the leaks or rumors are (remember the iPhone 6?!), we temper it with pragmatism, and patiently wait for Apple to confirm things. They’ve done that a bit early this time, with the new iPad owner’s manual tipping Apple’s iHand for tomorrow’s event.

BlackBerry Classic gets detailed in spec and photos leak

With the BlackBerry Passport, the BlackBerry "Prestige" Porsche Design P'9983, and the new BlackBerry Blend software, most of the company's roadmap for the last quarter of 2014 have come to pass. All except one. The BlackBerry Classic, the Q20 in previous literature, is still something fans are eagerly waiting for before they call this year done. While that day might be coming soon, we will have to settle for unofficial information, like this latest batch of features and images that paint an almost complete picture of the smartphone.

Don’t hold your breath for a Retina MacBook Air this week

MacBook Air lovers may be crying out for a Retina display upgrade to their favorited ultraportable, but Apple will leave them wanting after Thursday's event, according to new leaks. A higher-resolution version of the MacBook Air, following its more expensive MacBook Pro sibling, has been rumored for some time now, with chatter back in July suggesting the pixel-packed notebook was headed into production imminently. However, for one reason or another, the new laptop won't actually be taking the stage in Cupertino this Thursday.

Cadillac schemes plans to trample Tesla

Cadillac is planning a strike at Tesla, with a fully-electric luxury car on the roadmap that will see the company challenge the Model S as the GM-owned marque broadens its play for eco-friendly motoring. The all-electric car - the name of which has not been confirmed - will be one of a number of new models that includes the refreshed ELR plug-in hybrid and a luxury sedan now known to be the CT6. However, Cadillac is also considering a number of other models, including new crossovers and an even huger, uber-luxe sedan to take on the best of German rivals from Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Audi.
