Pinterest tipped to be adding ‘buy’ button

Pinterest has been up to different things lately, having just recently kicked off its apps initiative, and according to a new tip that has surfaced, it is also looking to enter the e-commerce sphere. The pinning website is reportedly planning to add a "buy" button that will allow users to buy some of the items they discover in pins, doing so without having to leave the website for a different one. The feature could be seen within the next half a year, though it might launch in a limited fashion first before becoming more widely available.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge get official mention

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge get official mention

Samsung has seemingly confirmed that there will be two variants of the Galaxy S6 smartphone, with one - the Galaxy S6 Edge - expected to use a curved touchscreen. The new flagship will make its official debut at Samsung's pre-Mobile World Congress event in just a few weeks time, but two support pages for the Galaxy S6 (referred to by its SM-G920X product code) and the S6 Edge (as the SM-G925X) have already sprung up. Although neither has anything so useful as product shots or even diagrams of what the handsets will look like, it's apparent confirmation that the curved side-screen first used on the Galaxy Note Edge isn't quite ready for mass-market use.

New NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet with Tegra X1 rumored inbound

New NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet with Tegra X1 rumored inbound

It isn't exactly surprising to hear whispers of a beefed up SHIELD Tablet coming soon. In fact, we might be asking why it is taking so long. NVIDIA announced its shiny new Tegra X1 mobile chip early this year that would put a lot of its competitors on notice, even, or especially, Apple's own A8x processor. And what better way to prove the Tegra X1's graphical and processing prowess than by plugging it into one of your more successful mobile gaming products.

Chevrolet Bolt affordable EV tipped for late-2016 launch

Chevrolet Bolt affordable EV tipped for late-2016 launch

Chevrolet may have insisted the Bolt EV was a concept when it pulled the wraps off the compact car in Detroit last month, but according to new rumors we won't have that long to wait for a production version. Slotting in underneath the Chevy Volt in both size and range, the concept was designed, according to GM president Mary Barra, to satisfy markets outside of just California, which has been the most enthusiastic to embrace electric and hybrid technology so far. Now, new rumors say production is likely to kick off late next year.

Kia Trail’ster teases e-AWD with a trad twist

Kia Trail’ster teases e-AWD with a trad twist

Kia keeps dripping out details of its new rugged concept car, now dubbed the Kia Trail'ster, though if anything we're even more confused than we were before. What started last month as the teasing bumper and chunky wheels of a concept for the Chicago Auto Show now has a name - replete with needless apostrophe - and what turns out to be not quite the electric all-wheel-drive powertrain we were expecting. Instead, it appears that the Trail'ster will be a hybrid, combining old and new technologies to make it more sure-footed in snow and mud.

Swatch smartwatch in 2-3 months with big battery boast

Swatch plans to launch a smartwatch in the next three months, focusing on battery life and mobile payments as the company readies its retort to wrist-worn rivals like Apple Watch.

The company - part of the Swatch Group which also owns high-end brands like Glashütte, Omega, and Rado - has been cautious on smart wearables in the past, though has quietly been building up its tech portfolio to suit the segment.

Galaxy S6 to showcase new Samsung mobile payment system

Galaxy S6 to showcase new Samsung mobile payment system

As is always the case, Samsung's next flagship is portrayed with almost godlike powers and the Galaxy S6 is no different. Perhaps aside from the fact that it might not be running on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. In addition to dual curved edges and a new "stationary" fingerprint sensor instead of a swipe-based one, now the smartphone is rumored to have one more special feature. If the information is accurate, the Galaxy S6 will be the first to bear Samsung's new mobile payment system, that is rumored not to rely on NFC.

Apple switching gears to test camera-equipped vehicles in Bay Area

Minivans are a staple of the US Landscape, and now Apple is testing Minivans equipped with Cameras and a LiDAR Sensor for a possible new (secret) project. There have been numerous sightings of these vehicles in recent weeks. What does Apple have up its secret sleeve this time? Is Apple possibly trying to compete with Google Streetview?
