2020 Lexus LC 500 Review: Aspirationally Aspirated

2020 Lexus LC 500 Review: Aspirationally Aspirated

It's four years since we first saw the production version of the LC 500. Eight years since the unveil of the original LF-LC Concept on which the coupe was based. I'm struggling to think of another current vehicle that still looks so fresh and startling: familiarity may not always breed contempt, but it does tend to soften the impact.

These are the official PS5 accessories

In addition to giving us our first look at the PlayStation 5 itself today, Sony also revealed a number of first-party accessories that will presumably launch alongside the console later this year. That Sony has a lineup of accessories ready to launch isn't anything shocking - after all, Sony already makes a rather large range of first-party accessories for the PlayStation 4 as well.

Sony PlayStation 5 revealed: Original and Digital Edition

Sony PlayStation 5 revealed: Original and Digital Edition

The Sony PlayStation 5 console was revealed in full in the afternoon of June 11, 2020. This was the first time the public was shown a full view of the console - along with its first set of accessories. This PS5 was shown at an event that largely focused on games that'd be released on the machine, not all at launch, but certainly all in a way that was meant to demonstrate the power of the console.

The electric truck wars are getting interesting

The electric truck wars are getting interesting

No longer can the automotive industry afford to move at its old, glacial pace, not when the players in the electric truck wars are starting to show their hands. Pickups, vans, and utility vehicles in general have typically lagged behind their passenger vehicle counterparts when it comes to embracing new tech, but with no reasonable person able to write off electrification as a passing fad, it's time for trucks to get charged up.

Razer Kishi Review : The best mobile gaming controller yet

Razer Kishi Review : The best mobile gaming controller yet

Razer makes solid gaming hardware. They've made a lot of gaming-centric devices over the past two decades, and I've not always been a member of Razer's target audience. With the Razer Kishi, I find myself excited by a smartphone accessory for the first time in what feels like forever. Razer Kishi is a gaming controller that connects to Android devices via USB-C and folds up to a compact size when not in use. This is about more than gaming - it's about the future.

The Apple ARM move demands a classic Mac reboot

The Apple ARM move demands a classic Mac reboot

The dawn of Apple's switch of macOS to run on Arm processors is finally almost here, at least if the leaks are correct, and I'm hoping it gives one misunderstood Mac product another chance to prove its merit. Rumored for years, it's a blow to Intel and potentially some work for developers between WWDC 2020 and the arrival of the first hardware come 2021.

RedMagic 5G Review : More gamer now than phone

RedMagic 5G Review : More gamer now than phone

The gaming phone RedMagic 5G is effectively a collection of the most interesting gaming technology yet offered on a phone, jammed in the body of a very optimistic handset. This device feels like it was made by a company that had the opportunity to take chances. Unlike other devices I'd classify as niche, the Red Magic 5G includes features that I would not expect on a device that's priced this (relatively) low.

Conquering the Backlog Part 6: Video game choice paralysis

Conquering the Backlog Part 6: Video game choice paralysis

One thing I often struggle with when it comes to gaming is choice paralysis. I’ll know I want to play something, but when you’ve got an extensive backlog of games to choose from, deciding on what to play can be a tricky thing. The same concept applies to all forms of entertainment, whether you’re deciding on the TV show or movie to watch next or you’re trying to pick a book out of the pile of unread tomes that sits in front of you.

Facebook’s photo transfer tool really surprised me – Here’s how to use it

Facebook’s photo transfer tool really surprised me – Here’s how to use it

I expected the Facebook photo transfer tool to be a grudging concession and tricky to use, but it's actually one of the easiest new Facebook features I can remember trying. Announced late last year, but only now available worldwide, it's a topical addition given a resurgence of questions about the ethics of one social network having so much power in our daily lives and around our electoral system.

Sonos Arc Review: Dolby Atmos in the soundbar we’ve been waiting for

Sonos Arc Review: Dolby Atmos in the soundbar we’ve been waiting for

The problem with making things look easy, Sonos has discovered, is that peoples' wish-lists only ever get longer. The new Sonos Arc is a textbook example: on the face of it a simple response to the question "Where's the Sonos Dolby Atmos soundbar?" it nonetheless required a whole new platform and, as a side-effect, leaving some of the company's earliest adopters peeved. When you're responsible for that sort of disruption, you have to live up to the hype.

Pokemon Sword and Shield first expansions: All the new Pokemon detailed

The first DLC expansion in Pokemon Sword and Shield's expansion pass officially has a release date of June 17th. That's big news for Sword and Shield fans, in part because the expansion pass promises to add a bunch of Pokemon to the game, filling in some more of the purged Pokedex. We got an introduction to some of those Pokemon in a recent trailer for the expansion pass, with The Pokemon Company International sharing more details about these Pokemon after the fact.
