Epic Games vs. Apple trial is unearthing more than intended

The Epic Games vs. Apple bench trial, one of the most high-profile court cases in recent memory kicked off on Monday this week and it is destined to have some ramifications for the tech and gaming industry as a whole.

There’s a huge EV hole and I’m in it

There’s a huge EV hole and I’m in it

Electric vehicles are the future. At least, that's what automakers, regulators, and EV enthusiasts keep telling us, but though I'm a fan of electrification I'm still frustrated. In fact, I'm on a countdown to making a tough electric decision, and it's one that has left me scratching my head about the EVs on offer today, not to mention just how well they actually fit with the lifestyles of potential buyers.

Google Pixel 5a 5G is a real deal, here’s what you should know

Google launched the Pixel 4a, followed by the Pixel 4a 5G and then came the Pixel 5 that wrapped up 2020 on a good note for the company. After much speculation and rumors, Google has somewhat given away the existence of the next Pixel device –Pixel 5a 5G - by revealing a photo clicked from the upcoming phone. And now, with Google I/O just around the corner, speculations are ripe for an early announcement of the smartphone.

After a week with Apple AirTags, this is what I can’t work out

After a week with Apple AirTags, this is what I can’t work out

If Apple's big strength is taking the complex and stressful and making it simple and elegant, then its AirTag tracker might be the most successful gadget from the company in years. It's no surprise, then, that since the tiny circular tags were announced earlier in the month, people have been brainstorming just what they might attach them to. I'm no different, though I've come to realize AirTags aren't yet entirely amenable to everything important in my day-to-day life.

I can’t stop looking at the 2022 Honda Civic’s dashboard

I can’t stop looking at the 2022 Honda Civic’s dashboard

I had to Google what the outgoing Honda Civic's dashboard looks like, and then wished I hadn't bothered. Honda's compact may be a lot of things - affordable, economical, surprisingly spritely to drive, and a gateway for new owners to the automaker's brand - but being memorable for its cabin wasn't one of them. That all changes with the new 2022 Honda Civic Sedan.

Diablo II Resurrected alpha impressions: Back to Hell we go

Diablo II Resurrected alpha impressions: Back to Hell we go

Diablo II Resurrected's first technical alpha wrapped up earlier this week, giving us a brief glimpse at the game Diablo fans have been requesting for years. This is the first of at least two Diablo II Resurrected tests Blizzard plans to hold, and this one was fairly limited in scope - not only did we just have the weekend to check out the game, but we were limited to three of the game's seven classes and just two of its Acts.

Google Whitechapel in-house chip for Pixel phones: Things to know

Google Whitechapel in-house chip for Pixel phones: Things to know

Last year, Google CEO Sundar Pichai made a statement that the company is investing a huge chunk into hardware and that it had a perfect roadmap for 2021. This triggered a row of speculations as tech pundits predicted Google to be venturing into the SoC space, developing its own chips for the Pixel and Chromebooks of the future.

Why does Nintendo seem to resent its fans so much?

Why does Nintendo seem to resent its fans so much?

It's April 1st, and just as Nintendo warned us six months ago, Super Mario 3D All-Stars is no longer available on the Switch eShop. While some were hoping that we'd see Nintendo make a last-minute reversal and keep Super Mario 3D All-Stars up on the eShop permanently, Nintendo stuck to its guns and removed the game just as it said it would. The company has also stopped shipping new copies of the game to retailers, and once those copies are gone, Switch owners will have to resort to used copies if they want to own Super Mario 3D All-Stars (assuming, of course, that used copies can be found).

I need Google’s Sleep Sensing tech to break out of the new Nest Hub

I need Google’s Sleep Sensing tech to break out of the new Nest Hub

Google has finally found an application worthy of its fiendishly clever Soli chip, and quite frankly it's wasted in a smart display. Or more accurately, the Nest Hub 2nd Gen may be a great showcase for what Soli, the short-range radar, is capable of with Sleep Sensing, but I can't help but wish Google had just made a standalone sensor instead.

Spotify’s roadmap to dominate the music streaming industry

Spotify’s roadmap to dominate the music streaming industry

Listening to music has gone past the days when one had to download it on their devices. Music streaming services have changed that for good. These not only bring your favorite music right to your fingertips with the convenience of cross-platform accessibility but also do much more. The ability to discover new music, engage with the audiophile community, and share tracks seamlessly with fellow listeners are some benefits.

Upcoming Nintendo Switch is worth the wait: All we know so far

Upcoming Nintendo Switch is worth the wait: All we know so far

We saw the Nintendo Switch hit shelves almost four years ago followed by the somewhat affordable Switch Lite couple of years back, and now news is almost confirming the future of the next Nintendo Switch variant. Yes, the handheld console is rumored to debut this year – most probably in the latter half – just in time for the holiday season. That’s set the cat among the pigeons in the Sony and Microsoft quarters.

I drove Chevrolet’s new Bolt EUV crossover and now I have an EV headache

I drove Chevrolet’s new Bolt EUV crossover and now I have an EV headache

The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV has a problem and, embarrassingly for the new electric crossover, the headache is a family affair. Having spent time behind the wheel of the new EV last week, I can tell you it's perky, affordable, and practical in its own way, as well as that it offers tech you'd previously have needed to splash out on a Cadillac to enjoy.
