Nissan Altima-te AWD has massively flared fenders over tank-like tracks

Nissan has announced a new member of the "warrior" family of vehicles that replaces wheels for tank-like treads to get around in the snow and on just about any other surface. The new ride is called the Altima-te AWD, and it will make the rounds at Canadian auto shows starting with its debut in Montreal. The most noticeable feature of the car is the massively flared fenders that are 7-inches wide in the front and rear to cover the treads.

Moto G7 series will come in fours before MWC 2019

With MWC 2019 fast approaching, it shouldn’t be a surprise that we’d get flooded with leaks and news about upcoming new handsets. But while most eyes are on high-end phones like the Galaxy S10 or even foldable phones, the rest of the smartphone market might be more interested in less expensive models. Those might have to wait for Motorola to bring out is new G series phones for 2019 which will reportedly have as much as four models to choose from.

LG G7 Android 9 Pie update rolls out with a surprise

Although it seemingly dragged its feet, LG has finally rolled out Android 9 Pie to its early 2018 flagship, the LG G7. That is, if you're lucky enough to be in Korea or using a Korean SKU. While the rest of the world will have to continue waiting, the update does include a notice on when other LG phones are expected to get the update. And that includes one we thought was already put to pasture.

Sony Mobile in trouble, silently exiting Southeast Asia

Sony has recently reaffirmed its commitment to the mobile market but which market that will be is now the question.

Lumia 950 XL runs Windows on ARM, original Fallout game

People do a lot of crazy things with their phones these days but one of the craziest things you can do is to run a desktop operating system on it. How about taking things a bit further by playing a desktop game on a desktop OS running on a phones? That's the rather absurd demonstration that YouTuber Wall SoGB made and while it's not exactly a worthwhile gaming experience, it's nonetheless an impressive technical demonstration at that.

Facebook Portal 5-star Amazon reviews written by employees

Facebook Portal 5-star Amazon reviews written by employees

It's getting harder and harder to trust customer reviews these days. Never mind the short, mindless bursts that are undeniably the product of some unintelligent bot. There are times when reviews are written by real humans whose motives are, unfortunately, questionable. This latter seems to be the case that's no hounding Facebook after a few of its employees have been caught red-handed leaving glowing five-star reviews for the company's newest product, the video chatting appliance Portal.

LG G8 renders show an unimpressive old design

LG G8 renders show an unimpressive old design

If LG is planning to wow the crowd at MWC 2019, it will probably not be with the LG G8, most likely called the LG G8 ThinQ. That is if LG is still going to stick with the G naming. Its titular flagship, the G8, codenamed “Alpha”, is probably going to be positioned as the smartphone “for everyone else” that’s not interested in fancy foldable screens, sliders, or other gimmicks. But if the details that arrived together with these 3D renders are the real deal, consumers might have little reason to prefer the LG G8 over last year’s LG V40 ThinQ.

iPad mini 5, 10-inch iPad coming first half of the year

While it seems that Apple is trying to capitalize on its iPad Pros capabilities as “computer replacements”, it hasn’t completely forgotten about its non-Pro slates. In fact, based on information from suppliers, two such iPads are coming within the next five months. But while that’s almost a given considering Apple has not canceled the iPad mini and regular iPad lines, the biggest question is how the company plans on positioning these devices in light of the iPhone XS Max and the 11-inch iPad Pro.

Twitter Android bug made private tweets public for four years

Twitter Android bug made private tweets public for four years

Tech companies love redefining words. Network carriers, for example, have made “unlimited” mean “limited” and Twitter has apparently turned “private” into “public”. Granted, the social networking giant pins the blame on a bug that affected only their Android-using population, but more than the worrying nature of the bug itself, it’s the fact that the bug has been active for years that should be cause for concern. And the fact that Twitter isn’t even aware of the scope of the bug isn’t reassuring either.
