Samsung to unveil Galaxy S7 in January, patents own 3D Touch

Rumors and speculation about Samsung's next flagship have already started flowing in and some might think it's a tad too early for that. However, it seems that it isn't too early after all.

A controversial tax loophole could cut $25k off Tesla’s Model X

Tesla probably prefers you to think of the Model X as more than just a humble truck, but that classification could save some owners thousands of dollars in tax breaks. The electric SUV, the first - very few - deliveries of which began late last month, is heavy enough to tip it into a lucrative and controversial tax bracket which some truck buyers have used to save considerably on luxury vehicles.

OnePlus mini might be what the OnePlus 2 could have been

OnePlus has another smartphone slated before the year ends, that much is known. What form it will take or what purpose it will serve, however, has yet to be revealed.

Microsoft Surface Pro 4 rumored to have ridiculously thin bezels

In less than a week, Microsoft will be unveiling the next iteration of its Surface Pro line. But unlike with smartphone leaks, definite details on the tablet is harder to pin down.
