Hey Toyota, where’s the new Tundra BEV?

Hey Toyota, where’s the new Tundra BEV?

It's not unfair to say we've been waiting for quite some time for the new 2022 Toyota Tundra. The full-sized pickup may have become a familiar sight on US roads since it first launched in 2000, but with the second-generation truck debuting all the way back in 2007 it's a reasonable observation that Toyota's upgrade cycle hasn't exactly been rapid.

Today I’m thinking about the Sinclair C5, a glorious EV failure

Today I’m thinking about the Sinclair C5, a glorious EV failure

Sir Clive Sinclair, the British inventor, has died today at the age of 81, and though it's the Sinclair ZX Spectrum and its impact on personal computing that will go down as his biggest success, it's an altogether more oddball gadget - and disaster - that I can't help but think of fondly. The Sinclair C5 arguably beat the current trend of electrified transportation by several decades, a three-wheeled curio that - like the Segway many years on - promised plenty but failed to live up to that in commercial terms.

Apple’s new iPad mini is so much more than just a smaller tablet

Apple’s new iPad mini is so much more than just a smaller tablet

I'd hoped Apple would grant the iPad mini a reprieve - instead, it gave it a reinvention. The smallest of the iPadOS devices proved to be the biggest star of Apple's iPhone 13 event this week, with new style, functionality, and speed partially eclipsing what could well be considered incremental updates to the best-selling smartphones.

6 exciting things to know about iPhone 13 debuting next week

After all the rumors and speculations, Apple has finally released dates for its impending event. The special “California Streaming” event is slated to take place on September 14 and yet again it is going to be a virtual affair. The highlight of the event is more or less the iPhone 13 series, of which, we kind-off know almost all the ins and outs, even though they are all speculative at the moment.

Facebook Ray-Ban Stories might actually surprise you

Facebook Ray-Ban Stories might actually surprise you

The Snapchat Spectacles came in 2016 with a lot of hype but turned out to be a bloated bubble that ultimately burst. While Snapchat users might disagree with this judgment, the glasses are pretty much useless for anything other than Snapchat. Now Facebook is looking to change that image with Ray-Ban Stories glasses developed in collaboration with EssilorLuxottica, Ray-Ban’s parent company.

I fear Sony is burning PS5 bridges with its most loyal gamers

I fear Sony is burning PS5 bridges with its most loyal gamers

At the beginning of this generation, it really seemed like all Sony had to do was stay the course and it would wind up on top again with the PlayStation 5. History proves that can be a tough thing to do, as winners in one generation sometimes become losers in the next. For instance, consider that the PlayStation 2 - the best-selling game console of all time - was followed by the PS3, a console that struggled from the outset and in the end only managed to break even with the Xbox 360. An even better - and more dramatic - example is the bomb that was the Wii U following the 100 million-selling Wii.

This is how the third-generation AirPods could turn up

This is how the third-generation AirPods could turn up

AirPods can be loosely considered pioneers in the true wireless earbuds space for a lot of reasons. However, the appearance smudged over time with exciting non-Apple options to pursue. Second-generation AirPods made a diluted effort to reclaim lost ground with their launch in 2019, but it’s the third-generation AirPods (colloquially called AirPods 3) that are billed to up the ante with some inspiration from the AirPods Pro and starting few paces above the AirPods 2’s key features.

Google-branded Chromebook processor to herald a new dimension

Google-branded Chromebook processor to herald a new dimension

Google has forayed into a range of industries previously and it’s now planning to manufacture its own silicon for the forthcoming Chrome OS-powered notebooks. Google’s growing focus on developing in-house chipsets isn’t new, this year however, it’s only become more evident than ever before. Especially after an official teaser of Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, which will be powered by a custom system on a chip (SoC) that is named the “Google Tensor”.

Well, I’m addicted to Cookie Clicker again

Well, I’m addicted to Cookie Clicker again

For several years now, I've been a fan of incremental and idle games. My fondness for this genre has a very clear starting point, and it's one I'm sure I share with many people: Cookie Clicker. I played Cookie Clicker a lot shortly after it was first released as a browser game in 2013, and though I played it for quite some time, I eventually fell out of it. Earlier this week, Cookie Clicker launched on Steam, and like a moth to a flame, I've returned for this new release.
