Unlimited Data plans from Verizon vs AT&T vs T-Mobile vs Sprint: a brief review

In a matter of just a few days, we've gone from two major US carriers offering unlimited data plans to all four.

So, if you're in the market for a new carrier and these unlimited plans have piqued your interest, which one should you go with? Hopefully this guide helps clear some things up.

2018 Lexus LC 500 First Drive: Ground-breaking luxury coupe lets Lexus find its soul

2018 Lexus LC 500 First Drive: Ground-breaking luxury coupe lets Lexus find its soul

The 2018 Lexus LC is an act of bravery. Not only did Lexus take the unusual and difficult step of birthing a street car that hews almost perfectly to the gorgeous, yet production-challenging lines of the LF-LC concept that preceded it, but it also chose to ignore prevailing winds - or are those forced induction vortices? - that have come to define the drivetrains found in top-tier luxury coupes. That the Lexus LC is a stunning design achievement is obvious to anyone with a pair of eyes. That it also waves a big, five-liter middle finger in the direction of its would-be German rivals is in a way both a more and a less-subtle statement.

BMW, LEGO made a mini 1200 GS that turns into a hover bike

LEGO blocks are the epitome of reusability. They can be used to form almost any object imaginable and then torn apart to be used to build a different object. But some LEGO blocks are made for specific designs and purposes to recreate a very specific thing, like a car or motorbike model. Can these blocks still be reused to create something else? The creative minds at BMW Motorrad and LEGO Technic think so. And to prove it, they took the LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS Adventure and turned it into the LEGO Technic Hover Bike.

ASUS standalone VR headset, ZenFlip hero coming soon

There are currently two competing implementations of virtual reality available in the market. One makes use of a powerful but relatively immobile computer, be it a PC, laptop, or even gaming console. The other uses a smartphone to trade power for portability. ASUS already has the latter, with the just announced ZenFone AR. According to leaked internal documents, however, the manufacturer is also eying the former. ASUS is reportedly working on a standalone VR headset, but its "AIO" name leaves the door open to something slightly different.

Skype Preview now lets you stick emoticons on video calls

Emojis are so big that there’s even a movie about them. Of course, you don’t have to go that far to see that. Just open up your favorite messaging app and see for yourself.

Which is just a thinly veiled statement that says, yes, Skype is getting emoticons and stickers.

Kodak taps ARCHOS to make its next smartphones for Europe

Brand licensing might be the next game in smartphones. BlackBerry got out of the smartphone manufacturing game but is letting OEMs like TCL and India's Optiemus to make BlackBerry-branded smartphones.

It has just announced its partnership with French manufacturer ARCHOS to create devices that will be sold in Europe not under ARCHOS own brand but as Kodak devices.

Huawei has already confirmed that its MWC 2017 presence will include the P10 as well as the Huawei Watch 2. Other than that, however, it hasn’t said much. Fortunately, others are doing the talking for the OEM, like the FCC who graciously made public a few snapshots of the smartphone, both its shell and its innards.

HTC to make at most 7 phones this 2017, entry-level out

HTC's smartphone business has long been in trouble that it has almost become a guessing game when it would fold.

No, HTC isn't bowing out of the smartphone business completely, but it is letting go off all but its higher end models.

Project Loon now needs less balloons to deliver the Internet

Google, or rather its Alphabet parent, has given up on its plans to get drones to deliver Internet connections to remote places. That means that Project Loon, which now falls unde Alphabet's X subsidiary, will bear the brunt of the responsibilities and expectations. Good thing, then, that the folks behind Loon have stumbled upon a method that allows these Internet-bearing balloons to linger over an area for longer periods of time.
