Super Smash Bros Ultimate’s character roster has risks says creator

It's pretty safe to say that Super Smash Bros Ultimate is the most ambitious release in the series we've seen so far. While there aren't a ton of new characters - Ridley and the Inklings from Splatoon are the only new ones we know about at this point - Super Smash Bros Ultimate is notable for featuring every fighter in the history of the franchise on its roster. When you think about all of the characters that have appeared in Super Smash Bros throughout the years, it becomes clear that Ultimate is going to be a big title.

Faraday Future FF 91 Autobahn development testing underway

Faraday Future has lofty goals for its slick FF 91 EV. It had the car at the Pikes Peak hill climb last year and the FF 91 set a new EV class record at the event. Obviously, that record fell this year when VW and its I.D. R absolutely crushed the mountain. Faraday Future is now talking about the development it is doing for the FF 91 when it comes to sustained high-speed cruising of the sort you do on the Autobahn.

Google EU fine is a double-edged sword that could hurt Android

Google EU fine is a double-edged sword that could hurt Android

The European Commission just slapped Google with a $5 billion fine and gave it 90 days to clean up its act. The reason: Google’s anticompetitive practice that used Android to practically force its Search service and Chrome browser on manufacturers and carriers to the detriment of rival apps and services. Like any issue of this magnitude, it’s not a clear-cut case. And while the European Commission may have the best interests of the Android ecosystem in mind, its demands could end up causing Android harm in the long run as well.

Xiaomi Mi Max 3: the Battery King cometh

Xiaomi Mi Max 3: the Battery King cometh

Xiaomi did something uncharacteristic lately. Within 24 hours before its official event, it has practically revealed everything there is to know about the Mi Max 3. It’s a strategy LG regularly employs for its flagships but unusual for Xiaomi. Not that we’re complaining because now we know just how massive the phone is to fit its equally massive battery. But while the price tag is fortunately not that big, US consumers are again left wishing for good things they still can’t have.

Kensington Dock is the Surface Studio mini you’ve always wanted

Kensington Dock is the Surface Studio mini you’ve always wanted

While the Surface Pro 2-in-1 tablets were a surprise hit, they weren’t exactly a revolutionary device at a time when 2-in-1 tablets were becoming more common. Few, however, expected Microsoft to come up with the Surface Studio. It was a creative’s dream come true, if not for the obscenely high price tag and, to some extent, the huge size as well. What if you already have a recent Surface Pro and was fine with that size but wanted the flexibility and stability of a Surface Studio. Thankfully, accessory maker Kensington now has an answer for that: the SD7000 Dual 4K Surface Pro Docking Station.

LG V40 ThinQ is still coming in three months

LG V40 ThinQ is still coming in three months

In the past 11 months, there have actually been three V series phones launched by LG: the V30, the V30S ThinQ, and, most recently, the V35 ThinQ. Four if you count the exclusive V30+. Not bad for a smartphone maker reported to be girding its loins due to quarter after quarter of losses. LG, however, is far from done. Unsurprisingly, there is still the 2018 V series flagship coming, unsurprisingly called the LG V40, and it will also unsurprisingly bear the ThinQ AI brand.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau: no to wireless charging for now

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau: no to wireless charging for now

Although it may have had a few lapses here and there, OnePlus has tried hard to stay true to its commitment to “Never Settle”. That, however, may have ironically caused it to ironically miss out on some features that some of its own users ask for. Of course, there’s no pleasing everyone which is why OnePlus is putting its foot down on wireless charging, simply because, as CEO Pete Lau says in an interview, it just isn’t there yet.
