OnePlus 9RT is coming: Everything we know so far

OnePlus 9RT is coming: Everything we know so far

OnePlus has a slightly confusing lineup up front – there is the OnePlus 9, the 9 Pro and a surprising entrant called the OnePlus 9R – with very little difference between them. With a ‘T’ version on the horizon, we believe OnePlus will make it very difficult for us to keep count. Anyway! The company, by way of founder Pete Lau, had officially announced that it would not be releasing a T version of its flagship series this year. The idea to sit back on the T variant was derived from the global chip shortage, at least that’s how it was perceived.

In New World, picking weapons is my biggest problem

In New World, picking weapons is my biggest problem

Like many MMO fans, I've been spending a lot of time with New World lately. While I'll need to play a lot more before I can review the game, I've played more than enough to know that I have a problem on my hands: I still have no idea which weapons I want to use. I've cycled through many different weapons, and I'm not much closer to the answer now than I was when I first started playing.

The 2022 Ford Maverick is refreshingly honest

The 2022 Ford Maverick is refreshingly honest

While there are plenty of reasons that the 2022 Maverick stands apart from the state of play in the truck world right now, it's Ford's refreshingly blunt approach to design and accessories that might be the most shocking. Yes, the Maverick may be priced from an unprecedented $20k (plus destination), and it may be the first pickup in the market to come with a hybrid drivetrain as standard, but it's how the cabin looks, feels, and adapts that I suspect will have a longer lasting impact on owners.

Google Pixel 6 series: Everything rumored and official we know

Rivian’s R1T “gimmicks” make so much more sense now

Rivian’s R1T “gimmicks” make so much more sense now

I'll admit, some of what Rivian was promising with the R1T all-electric pickup seemed a bit... gimmicky. Not pointless, nor useless, but enough to make you wonder whether, had the American EV startup opted to leave those features out, could the 2022 R1T have been even more affordable?

“Astro, hold my beer”: Amazon’s home robot should fear more than the stairs

“Astro, hold my beer”: Amazon’s home robot should fear more than the stairs

Amazon knows you're probably skeptical about "Alexa on wheels," but it's making its Astro robot anyway. Announced today, the latest iteration of the retailer's smart assistant cuts the cord completely - well, for as long as the battery lasts, anyway - in a way the rotating Echo Show 10 could only dream of, though there's still an uphill struggle if Astro is to convince us that it's a household necessity.

Pixel Tablet is a no-go – Why Google doesn’t make Android slates

Pixel Tablet is a no-go – Why Google doesn’t make Android slates

Google never had a great relationship with tablets. It wasn't until the disaster that was Android 3.0 Honeycomb did the mobile platform acknowledged the tablets that had long existed before it, and even then, it took a few iterations for Android to stop feeling awkward on large screens. Google itself would only make two and a half tablets under the Nexus brand, a forgettable Pixel C, and the only Pixel Slate in existence that ran Chrome OS instead. There is now some speculation that Google might be ready to take another whack at it, but a Google Android tablet might actually make little sense for the company because it doesn't mesh well with its ultimate goal.

With iPhone 13 in hand, I miss Touch ID more than ever

With iPhone 13 in hand, I miss Touch ID more than ever

I've been traveling this past week, and the iPhone 13 Pro Max has been my trusty sidekick. Whether it's boarding passes, camera duties, messaging, or keeping me occupied with ebooks and music, I've found myself staring at the excellent 120Hz ProMotion display a whole lot. Problem is, when the sensors above that screen stare back, they're not seeing what they want to.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 vs Microsoft Surface Duo 2 – the better foldable

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 vs Microsoft Surface Duo 2 – the better foldable

Microsoft just unveiled the Surface Duo 2 and, unless Google pulls a surprise next month, we have now seen all the foldable devices for this year. Although there are other players in that niche category, like Royole, Huawei, and Xiaomi, the two biggest names that have surfaced this year are the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Surface Duo 2. Unsurprisingly, there will be comparisons between the two, and we examine the most important aspects of these two in order to give that verdict.
