OnePlus 3 Review

OnePlus 3 Review

The OnePlus 3 is a phone that competes with the finest smartphones on the market today at almost every level. Why might you want to buy one? Because it might be a slightly smaller amount of cash to purchase than a device with almost identical features. How is this device different from its competitors? It looks slightly different and acts slightly differently. Also, you won't have to wait for a code to get the "opportunity" to buy one this time around.

2016 Nissan Titan XD Review: Not-quite HD pickup makes cannonball splash

2016 Nissan Titan XD Review: Not-quite HD pickup makes cannonball splash

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD is a puzzling truck. Let me explain. I've been driving trucks since I was a teenager, learning the joys of parking a battleship in an urban environment after my transition from country mouse to city mouse for college. In the intervening years I've seen the full-size pickup market blossom into the behemoth-laden bastion of Big Three profits that it's become today, with ultra-luxury trucks now as common as BMW and Lexus sedans at country clubs across the nation.

Hush Smart Earplugs Review: Beyond the veil of sleep, Bluetooth-style

Hush Smart Earplugs Review: Beyond the veil of sleep, Bluetooth-style

I've never been a good sleeper. Ever since I was a kid I'd toss and turn hours past my bedtime, chasing elusive Z's and secretly panicking as the clock ticked closer to reveille. As an adult, I've gotten better at shutting my brain down and nodding off, but throw in distractions like noise, lights, or the impending existential dread that can grip us all in the dark of the night, and it's easy enough for my brain to cling desperately to consciousness and leave me exhausted for the following day. This is where Hush smart earplugs come in.

2017 Fiat 124 Spider First Drive

2017 Fiat 124 Spider First Drive

In recent years modern automotive enthusiasts have become a spoiled lot. It’s hard to blame them though – we live in an era of unprecedented access to hair-raising performance, one in which 600 horsepower hardly raises an eyebrow and the prospect of a sub-four second dash to sixty miles per hour almost seems quaint. But amongst this output arms race, a contingent of sports car fans still yearn for a wholly different approach to driving bliss.

Acer Predator G6 Review : War Machine

Acer Predator G6 Review : War Machine

The desktop Acer calls Predator G6 (G6-710 for this review) is a monster. It's not the largest and most all-inclusive PC they offer - it's not even the most massive Predator. Instead, it's a great combination of elements. It's powerful enough to run high-end games and virtual reality applications, acts like a custom-built rig (with plenty of bright lights and odd opening panels), and looks rather fine. There's room for expansion, but also rolls correct right out of the box.

Kingspray Graffiti Simulator in VR is magical (with SG Mixed Reality)

Kingspray Graffiti Simulator in VR is magical (with SG Mixed Reality)

Kingspray Graffiti Simulator is the sort of app that will make people buy a VR headset. With the HTC Vive, a user is able to step into a very real-looking virtual space. The user is given a can of spray paint and an open canvas. Not a traditional canvas, mind you - a wall on a rooftop. Or a train car. Or a billboard. You, the user, play the part of a street artist, and you've got free reign over your virtual - real - world. You're gonna be a belieVR.

All-new 2017 GMC Acadia first drive – puts all midsize SUVs on notice

Hey, Toyota, Ford, Nissan, Honda, Audi, and yes even Cadillac: GMC’s out to eat your lunch with the all-new 2017 Acadia. Targeting a wider group of buyers that spans the everyman through to thrill seekers and those looking for a premium experience without paying out for a luxury brand.

2017 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet and 4S first drive

2017 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet and 4S first drive

The Porsche 911 is not the car for everyone, whether it’s the design or the price, but Porsche is okay with that. A mainstay of the sports segment for decades, it’s the benchmark by which serious drivers - and the automakers trying to sell them similarly seriously-driving cars - judge on-road experience. That means big boots to fill when it comes to a new model, something Porsche knows all too well as it launches the 2017 Carrera S Cabriolet and Carrera 4S Coupe.

2016 BMW M2 Review: The ‘M’ Stands For ‘Fun’

2016 BMW M2 Review: The ‘M’ Stands For ‘Fun’

There's a set of roads I grew up on, far from the metropolitan sidewalks and boulevards that currently serve as the boundary markers in my adopted city. The kind of asphalt seemingly drawn on the map by a pendulum suspended in the passenger seat of a WRC car blasting full-tilt down an alpine rally stage. They served as my nursery when I first started driving, teaching me the fundamentals of opposite lock, car control, and how to call my father at 2 a.m. to come tow me out of an icy ditch. A natural, then, for exercising the all-new 2016 BMW M2, the latest addition to the German brand's growing stable of M-badged performance vehicles.

Switchmate Review – The easiest IoT light upgrade ever

Switchmate Review – The easiest IoT light upgrade ever

If embracing the smart home has a common first step, it's often remotely-controlled lights, but that can be an expensive, time-consuming, or technical upgrade. Wireless bulbs switch out for their dumb cousins, but equipping every lamp can get expensive; swapping dumb wall switches for wireless versions looks clean but requires screwdrivers and dealing with mains electricity, not to mention potentially incurring landlord wrath. Step forward Switchmate, then, with an alternative that's up and running in mere minutes.

2016 Volvo V60 Polestar T6 Review – Swedish mettle

2016 Volvo V60 Polestar T6 Review – Swedish mettle

Volvo should not make this car. That the Swedish automaker, beloved for its traditionally boxy style and obsessive approach toward safety, is responsible for the V60 Polestar, a wagon not so much of the "light the blue touch paper and stand back" variety but more "douse the place with gasoline and torch it, while cackling like an unhinged Batman villain", is equal parts oddity and triumph.

NVIDIA GTX 1070 Founder’s Edition Review

NVIDIA GTX 1070 Founder’s Edition Review

Earlier this month, NVIDIA revealed the two latest graphics cards to join their roster. Powered by the new Pascal architecture, the company made some pretty big promises for the line. The GTX 1080 hit stores just a couple of days ago, and you can see our review of the Founder's Edition here. But today, we're going to take a look at its little brother, the GTX 1070.
