2018 Honda Civic Type R First Drive: It was worth the wait

2018 Honda Civic Type R First Drive: It was worth the wait

Bravo Honda, bravo. The 2018 Civic Type R is the company’s most powerful car ever to be sold stateside. Indeed, Honda’s people are unofficially referring to it as the fastest front-wheel drive “road legal racecar” on the road. In short, no, the “R” in the name plate isn’t just for show.

New Atari console could be just what the game industry needs

In the time since then, fans of classic consoles like the Atari 2600 and the 2800 have been speculating about what this could mean. Is Atari about the re-enter the console business? It turns out that the answer is yes.

Surface Pro Review 2017

Surface Pro Review 2017

The Surface Pro Review we have here passes judgement on the Surface Pro released in June of 2017, as first outlined earlier this year. With the newest version of the Surface Pro, Microsoft made an equivalent to the iMac G4 by combining two important elements. The Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) is both enjoyable to use in a unique way, and it’s reliable. The unique/enjoyable factor comes from the keyboard attachment – the one that doesn’t come standard with the Surface itself.

2018 Hyundai Kona First Drive: Better late than never for all-new SUV

2018 Hyundai Kona First Drive: Better late than never for all-new SUV

Is it ok to be late to the party if you make a stylish entrance? That would appear to be the question asked by the new 2018 Hyundai Kona, the Korean automaker's first 'cute ute,' a subcompact crossover aimed at the growing slice of buyers trading in sedans for the all-wheel drive hatchbacks on stilts that are taking over the industry. The Kona's appearance in showrooms might lag chronologically behind options like the Jeep Renegade, the Mazda CX-3, and the Honda HR-V - we're unlikely to see it go on sale in the United States until the first quarter of 2018 - but Hyundai has pegged its hopes on pairing strong value with appealing design in its bid for the affections of space-seeking shoppers.

Google Pixel XL 2 gets even bigger (6P size returns!)

Google Pixel XL 2 gets even bigger (6P size returns!)

The next big Google phone, likely called Google Pixel XL 2, seems to be getting as big as the company's original huge phone: the Nexus 6P. This week speculation came of the cancellation of the mid-sized Pixel 2 thanks to a series of insider tips (linked below). Because Google's been working on three new devices for the next wave, instead of two, the cutting out of the mid-sized device won't have that giant an effect on the everyday average consumer. We'll weep for the lack of a 5.5-inch display, but the device we'll get will probably be better off for it.

Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock Review: MacBook Pro ports, at a price

Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock Review: MacBook Pro ports, at a price

Thunderbolt 3 may be the wunderport of the future, but sometimes it feels like nobody told the peripheral-makers that. While notebooks like the most recent MacBook Pro may have switched entirely to Thunderbolt 3 and the USB Type-C connector, actually finding things to plug into them can be hard going. Enter Belkin's Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock, one of the first to market to take advantage of the connection's 40 Gbps throughput and power/display/data flexibility.

E3 2017: All major announcements from Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, and more

E3 2017 officially kicks off today, but from here on out, big announcements will likely be few and far between.

There were six big press conferences of note this year - Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, and Bethesda - and what follows are the biggest announcements from each of them.

Google Pixel 2 takes on iPhone with Apple’s own chip designer

Google Pixel 2 takes on iPhone with Apple’s own chip designer

Google just hired Apple's processor designer for mobile products, and they've put him in charge of making their own Pixel SOC. Manu Gulati worked with companies like AMD and Broadcom before moving to Apple in 2009, leading as inventor on a number of key processor-related patents. This may mean that Google will follow in Apple's footsteps for the Pixel 2 or Pixel 3 (probably 3, at this point) - which could mean the axe for Qualcomm from Pixel devices.

Mophie Charge Force Case for iPhone 7 Review: Fixing Apple’s flaws

Mophie Charge Force Case for iPhone 7 Review: Fixing Apple’s flaws

Yet the newest Mophie Charge Force Cases for iPhone 7 don't even have a battery inside.

Below you can find a list of all the big games announced during the show, along with trailers for each of them.

2017 BMW 530i Review: Geek excess comes at a price

2017 BMW 530i Review: Geek excess comes at a price

Does it matter if all modern cars start to look the same, if your slick new 2017 BMW 530i could easily be mistaken for a 7 Series twice the price? The new entry point to 5 Series ownership isn't cheap, of course, but it's certainly cheaper than you might expect. There are a couple of compromises along the way if affordable Bavarian motoring is your modus operandi, mind.
