The McLaren 600LT is not what I expected

The McLaren 600LT is not what I expected

Speedtail, Longtail, Senna… McLaren is in the midst of a model explosion, flexing more than a billion dollars to grow its line-up by 18 new models or variations by the time 2025 is through. Still, if you had any concerns that quantity would come at the cost of quality, the 2019 McLaren 600LT should settle your fears. Latest addition to the Sport Series, it’s an opportunity for the British automaker to demonstrate exactly what it does best: finding the center point where exotic materials, lightweighting, and brute force play most compellingly.

The Best Games of 2018: God of War

The Best Games of 2018: God of War

If, at the beginning of the year, you were worried that the new God of War title was just a cynical money grab from Sony, you definitely weren’t alone. After all, the God of War series had a pretty good run back in the days of the PS2 and PS3, but it overstayed its welcome and ended up going out with the whimper that was God of War: Ascension. It wasn’t hard to imagine that Sony was simply tapping a dormant franchise to squeeze more money out of fans of the series, with no real intention of returning the franchise to its former glory. That’s just what big publishers do.

Razer Phone 2 Review: The Slight Difference

Razer Phone 2 Review: The Slight Difference

The Razer Phone 2 once again offers a unique smartphone package to a still-stagnant smartphone market. We're no longer in a place where there's a massive number of people looking to buy their first phone (in the USA, anyway), we're at the point at which most people have had a couple smartphones - or more - in their adult lives. Now's the time to release something different - something that takes a chance with hardware design and features that appeal to some, but not all.

I took a class in the 2019 Corvette ZR1’s 755hp schoolroom

An hour from Vegas, past rolling brown hills and more than a few tumbleweeds, you’ll find Spring Mountain Motor Resort and Country Club. A racing-enthusiast’s oasis in the desert. Unlike most oases, though, this one can get seriously loud.

2019 BMW 330i and 2020 M340i First Drive

2019 BMW 330i and 2020 M340i First Drive

15,543,000. That's the number of 3 Series that BMW has produced over the past four decades - and now seven generations - of the iconic sports sedan. BMW enthusiasts often argue about which generation is best, the never-settled discussion generally focusing around the second generation E30 (1982–1994) and the fourth generation E46 (1998–2006). Both of these 3 Series would raise the benchmark of what a great sports sedan should be, with their precise steering, even weight distribution, power delivery, and sheer driving pleasure.

Why your phone tracking your GPS location is a problem

Why your phone tracking your GPS location is a problem

Today we're going to touch on the latest news in how your phone is selling your location to 3rd party companies - and we're going to discuss why this is important. The most common thing I hear when I tell people they're being tracked and/or surveilled is something along the lines of this: "I don't care, why would they want to listen to me or follow me anyway?" There are several reasons every single person should be aware of how they're being tracked - and news this week shows that there's real reason to be alarmed.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate first look: Everyone really is here

Super Smash Bros Ultimate first look: Everyone really is here

16 or 17 years ago, my parents bought me a GameCube and a copy of Super Smash Bros. Melee for Christmas. In a happy coincidence, Christmas landed at the very beginning of my school’s winter break that year, so I spent two solid weeks doing nothing but playing through Melee, unlocking new fighters, taking on challenges, and expanding my trophy collection. The days of winter breaks and being a carefree teenager are pretty far behind me at this point, but that doesn’t stop me from wishing I had two entirely free weeks to sink into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate anyway.

2019 Audi e-tron SUV First Drive Review

2019 Audi e-tron SUV First Drive Review

When I got the chance to test drive the new Audi e-tron in the deserts of Namibia, it was clear Audi hadn't developed an electric SUV merely for tarmac roads. While most drivers won't experience it, it turned out to be quite the thrill to drift an electric SUV. Indeed as far as I can remember, it's probably the most fun I've had behind the wheel of a luxury SUV.

Snapdragon 8cx hands-on: Windows on Arm gets serious

What can you expect from "the most extreme Snapdragon" ever to be found in a notebook? Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8cx reference designs may not stand out at first glance - think sober Lenovo Yoga-esque convertibles, fanless and unobtrusive with their metallic grey casings - but make no mistake, this is a big deal in connected, ultra mobile computing.
