Google Stadia Review: Amazing, for now

Google Stadia Review:  Amazing, for now

When this Google Stadia Review was first posted, the service hadn't yet formally launched. Google sent the Founders Package to a set of sources that got an early look and were invited to review the game streaming system before the official Google Stadia release date of November 19, 2019. As such, we gave the service an early once-over review with what we'd experienced thus far. As the service evolves, we'll be updating this review accordingly - so stay tuned!

Ford Mustang Mach-E first ride – Inside the electric pony

Ford Mustang Mach-E first ride – Inside the electric pony

Ford's Mustang Mach-E isn't set to reach dealerships until late 2020, but with prototypes already on the streets we didn't say no when the automaker asked if we wanted a ride. Still wrapped in its design-diluting camouflage, the test-mule isn't ready for drivers outside of Ford to get behind the wheel, but it was still enough to get a taste of what the Mach-E's all-wheel drive powertrain is capable of.

Ford Mustang Mach-E first look: Electric SUV takes on Tesla

Ford Mustang Mach-E first look: Electric SUV takes on Tesla

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E has been officially revealed, complete with divisive design, up to 300 miles of all-electric range, and the sort of tech that EV drivers might more commonly associate with Tesla. Slipping out from under the covers just ahead of the LA Auto Show 2019, the newest addition to the Mustang family is counting on more than just a familiar brand name to give Ford a boost.

Motorola Razr hands-on – Old name, brand new category

Motorola Razr hands-on – Old name, brand new category

I'm preprogrammed to have a soft spot for the new Motorola Razr, the company's first foldable-screen phone. Like a whole lot of people - 50 million were sold in the first two years, after all - I had a RAZR V3. It wasn't my first Motorola clamshell, mind; my first ever cellphone was a Motorola StarTAC.

16-inch MacBook Pro official – Big power boost and scissor keys

The new 16-inch MacBook Pro is here, and Apple says it's everything it has heard from pro-users that they want - including a new keyboard. The new laptop replaces the 15-inch MacBook Pro completely, kicking off at the same price as its predecessor and marks a return to the scissor-switch key mechanism that Apple calls its new Magic Keyboard.

Sorry Google, but for me Stadia is a hard pass

Sorry Google, but for me Stadia is a hard pass

The launch of Google Stadia is right around the corner, and Google will be launching the service with little in the way of competition. At the moment, Sony is really the only major player in the streaming space with its PlayStation Now service, but Stadia certainly sounds much more ambitious. Over the past several months, Google has trickle released information about Stadia and what users can expect, and now that we’re just about a week out from release, I can confidently say that Stadia is not the service for me (at least not at the start).

2020 Audi R8 V10 Performance Coupe and Spyder First Drive Review- A fast goodbye

2020 Audi R8 V10 Performance Coupe and Spyder First Drive Review- A fast goodbye

I’ve always been a huge fan of the Audi R8, particularly the V10 model. Sure, I too mourned the demise of the V8 in the second-generation Type 4S R8, and back when the R8 first launched in 2007, it was unlike anything I’ve seen before. The Audi Rosemeyer Concept from early 2000 and Audi Le Mans Quattro concept both surged into my mind as I watched six-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Jacky Ickx drive the R8 for the first time. The R8 was Audi’s first-ever supercar, and boy was it revolutionary in terms of design. Whether Porsche was ready to accept it or not, it was time for the 911 to have some proper competition, and the Audi R8 was the answer.

I’ve given smart speakers as gifts before – I won’t do it again

Black Friday is coming but the holiday shopping season isn't waiting for its traditional kick-off, though while tech deals may be everywhere you look, there are some gadgets I won't be putting into my cart. Smart speakers and, more recently, smart displays have become a go-to gift for many over the past few years, but in 2019 they may not be quite so warmly received.

As VW ID.3 production begins, Volkswagen bets it all on an electric future

As VW ID.3 production begins, Volkswagen bets it all on an electric future

There’s a lot riding on Volkswagen’s first-ever ID.3 electric car. As I watched the first production model ID.3 roll off the assembly line, you couldn't miss the newfound sense of pride among the 8,000 or so employees inside VW’s Zwickau factory, which was converted recently from a large car manufacturing plant into what the automaker claims is the Mecca of e-mobility.

LG G8X ThinQ Review – Dual Screen Android is unexpected fun

LG G8X ThinQ Review – Dual Screen Android is unexpected fun

Not all foldable phones have a crease down the center of the display: some of them, like the LG G8X ThinQ and its LG Dual Screen accessory, have a hinge instead. The South Korean phone-maker's second attempt at a twin-display Android smartphone is also its first try at the US market, with aggressive pricing and a cautious feature-set to test the waters.

2020 Polestar 1 First Drive – Plug-in hybrid coupe previews a fast future

2020 Polestar 1 First Drive – Plug-in hybrid coupe previews a fast future

The Polestar 1 behind me fills the rear view mirror, low and broad, a shark among minnows on the highway. There's something about the proportions that encourage a second-glance; after all, you can't really credit brand recognition for the number of hungry stares, hastily-pointed phone cameras, and blunt fascination the sleek 2+2 coupe engenders.
