Pokemon Sword and Shield Isle of Armor Review: A fun, but short, addition

Pokemon Sword and Shield Isle of Armor Review: A fun, but short, addition

If anything, it should be clear by now that Pokemon Sword and Shield represent some big departures for the series in general. For starters, they’re the first main-series games on a home console.

Apple Glass’ AR lenses reportedly just took a huge step forward

Apple's smart glasses lenses have reportedly gone into trial production, as one of the key components for its upcoming AR products apparently makes it past the prototype stage.
