Upgrading to the new Switch? Here’s how to transfer your data

Last month, Nintendo announced that the standard Switch is getting a little bit of an upgrade by way of a new model that boasts increased battery life. While the new Switch doesn't offer any increased performance over launch models, that bump up in battery life might be worth a swap for some people, given the console's emphasis on portability. If you're planning to jump to the new Switch model, here's how you'll transfer your user and save data over to the new console.

Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport Prototype first drive: Changes are only skin deep

Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport Prototype first drive: Changes are only skin deep

Whatever the name night suggest, you can think of the new Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport as a five-seat alternative to the Atlas. Conceived primarily for the U.S. and Canadian market, it's an example of VW's regional divisions knowing what works for their audience, and the automaker's platforms being flexible enough to drive that understanding right onto dealership forecourts. As I found from behind the wheel of an Atlas Cross Sport prototype, that flexibility comes with pros and cons.

2019 Audi Q3 USA-spec first drive: Loyalty pledge

Audi's strategy with the 2019 Q3 SUV may be simple, but it's playing the long game. Give owners a taste of that sweet four-rings goodness, get them hooked, and then turn them into lifelong Audi fans.

After thirty years Lexus is ready for its next huge challenge

After thirty years Lexus is ready for its next huge challenge

The Lexus brand was born of an obsession to make the best car in the world. It’s as simple as that. Toyota founder Eiji Toyoda issued the challenge back in 1983: to create a new premium sedan that would go head-to-head with the best from BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Hiding under the initial code name of Circle F - which eventually became F1 or Flagship One - Lexus began working on their first car, the LS sedan. Interestingly enough, it was around the same time fellow Japanese carmakers Honda and Nissan were also working on their respective luxury arms, Acura and Infiniti.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 hands-on: End of the line?

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 4K (7th-gen) hands-on review

The last time I laid eyes on the ThinkPad 7th-generation X1 Carbon laptop from Lenovo was at CES in early January. Exactly eight months later, a fully-spec’d out review unit landed on my doorstep. Lenovo allows the buyer to customize the X1 according to their needs and, more importantly, what their budget permits.

I was wrong: iMessage is Android’s problem

I was wrong: iMessage is Android’s problem

Back in the year 2016 I wrote an article about iMessage and how Android users shouldn't make a big fuss about connectivity. Back then, there were some major issues between users when one used iMessage and the other used a service like Google Voice. You'd get a message, but you wouldn't get a photo. You wouldn't get to use FaceTime, and your life would be a mess. But it wasn't an Android issue - or so I'd decided.

You should stop using WhatsApp right now

You should stop using WhatsApp right now

Thank goodness I stopped using WhatsApp when I did - things are about to get MESSY. As of this Facebook currently has a content moderation plan*... another NEW content moderation plan I should say... Which will use AI to flag messages before they're encrypted, sending said messages then to Facebook HQ where they can be read by humans. Messages will then be used by Facebook to make their moderator machines smarter and better at detecting term-violating words and phrases from their always-editable lists.

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C8 Interior Review: Cabin Fever

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C8 Interior Review: Cabin Fever

There’s a reason why Chevrolet revealed the 2020 C8 Corvette Stingray during the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing. The new mid-engine Corvette is one small step for Chevy, and one giant leap for the American-built sports car industry. It sounds like I’m exaggerating - maybe even like I'm a star-struck fan - but having had the chance to get up close and personal with the 2020 Corvette I’m pretty convinced it'll create a huge tsunami in the world of high-performance cars.
