It doesn't require that you be a previous Nissan owner to buy one, or that you be vetted by a team of brand gatekeepers to determine whether you're worth of GT-R stewardship. You don't have to accept exotic hybrid technologies to tap into what the GT-R has to offer, nor does it come with an elaborate maintenance schedule and a pair of white gloves that you must wear each and every time you slip behind the wheel. Instead, it simply kicks enormous amounts of ass, and invites you to come along for the ride.

As of version 1.5, Vivaldi claims to be the first web browser to have built-in support for controlling color-changing Philips Hue bulbs.

And while the technology has already been proven to work, it’s far from being something you can really use anytime anywhere. In this latest iteration, however, Microsoft takes one step closer to that ideal, by allowing Holoportation to fit and be used inside a moving car.

Chrome OS getting Wake on Voice, Google Assistant predicted

After a brief period of hype brought about by official Android apps support, it seems that discussions around Chrome OS and Chromebooks have once again been reduced to murmurs.
