The frustrating limit to Ford’s F-150 Lightning electric pickup

The frustrating limit to Ford’s F-150 Lightning electric pickup

There's a whole lot to like about the Ford F-150 Lightning, though one aspect of the all-electric pickup could prove frustrating for those considering taking the leap into a gas-free lifestyle. Unveiled earlier this month, Ford's zero-emissions truck is no mere nod to electrification but feels like a wholehearted embrace of the concept and all the potential perks that come along with it, with a line-up that should have something for almost everyone.

Six months with Xbox Series X

Six months with Xbox Series X

Just like the PlayStation 5, the Xbox Series X turned six months old in May. Separated by just couple of weeks (here in the US at least), you’d think that maybe the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X would be following similar trajectories only six months out from launch. While that may be true in some respects, in others it already feels like the two consoles are walking divergent paths.

Retro Revisit: Sonic the Hedgehog for Sega Genesis

Retro Revisit: Sonic the Hedgehog for Sega Genesis

Sonic the Hedgehog is a game that needs little introduction. It sparked a series that is still going to this day - hit or miss though it may be - and it made Sega a competitor to the once-monolithic Nintendo. While Sonic has had his share of duds over the years, it seems that most people look back fondly on the original Sonic the Hedgehog trilogy.

Ford’s most outrageous F-150 Lightning feature is right in front of you

Ford’s most outrageous F-150 Lightning feature is right in front of you

Ford's new electric pickup doesn't look like a spaceship, or a movie prop, it looks like an F-150. It feels a little weird that normality alone leaves the F-150 Lightning an outlier in the fledgling EV truck segment, but then Ford's challenge is arguably a very different one to that faced by Tesla, Rivian, Canoo, and others.

I’m fascinated by the McLaren Artura hybrid – This is why

We're a long way from "hybrid" automatically meaning "Prius," but cars like the new McLaren Artura still have something to prove. Meaningful electrification in the sports car segment is a tough balance to strike: e-motors have clear advantages when it comes to delivering instant torque, for example, but bring with them their own weight and bulk headaches.

Some were forced to shift their priorities and delay or completely scrap plans. Thanks to a global shortage in semiconductor components, tech companies are now being hit even more, one way or another. Those factors are reportedly behind Microsoft's decision to indefinitely put Windows 10X on hold but that is actually a symptom of an even bigger problem, one that will probably see Windows forever stuck to desktops and laptops. perhaps even on Intel's and AMD's x86/x64 platforms only.
