Google snaps every search your phone makes – yes, even that one

While there are certain ways to block the internet from seeing what you're viewing, Google's latest update keeps a screenshot for later. Much like how Google Maps remembers everywhere you've ever been so you can find your car, Google (the search engine app) keeps a snapshot history of what you've searched for in Google Search. This search history does not make a significant impact on your smartphone's data storage space as it's all stored with Google on Google's servers.

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon first drive review: hell on wheels

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon first drive review: hell on wheels

I’m sorry, you’re called what? The Demon? The demon of what, you might also ask? It’s the torpedo of drag racers, born out an addiction to speed in a straight line, and its singular mission is to obliterate the competition on any drag strip. The specs say that the 840 HP V8 can propel this particular 4,275-pound missile from 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds, and hammer out the quarter mile in 9.65 seconds at 140 mph. This is the world’s fastest production car, and it’s wearing an American badge.

Mercedes’ autonomous path sees cars, cabs, and trucks converging

Mercedes expects its Level 4/5 autonomous cars to be on the road as soon as 2020, but for now the automaker's vehicles are being purposefully held back from becoming too self-sufficient. That's the state of play according to according to Ola Källenius, at least, Member of the Board of Management responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development. Speaking at the launch of the company's most advanced model in Zurich, Switzerland, he described the two strategies that are running in parallel to allow drivers to kick back even though they're at the wheel.

N64 Classic Edition: 8 games we’d like to see

Yesterday, we heard that Nintendo may be plotting an N64 Classic Edition. With the NES Classic Edition in the books and an SNES version on the way, this is hardly surprising. If the SNES Classic Edition sells well (and we all know it will), then Nintendo will almost certainly produce an N64 Classic Edition. With that in mind, here are eight games that I think should feature on such a retro console.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Review: The anti-MacBook Pro

Microsoft Surface Laptop Review: The anti-MacBook Pro

Microsoft knows how to make sleek hardware. If the Surface Book is handsome but bulky, and the Surface Pro is more minimalistic but suffers a less-compelling keyboard, then the Surface Laptop falls happily in-between. You don't get a fancy detachable display, no, or even a 360-degree hinge. Instead, it's a neatly finished, beguiling traditional laptop form-factor with some eminently pleasing material decisions.

Elon Musk Hyperloop for 29 min NY-DC ride given go-ahead [Updated]

Elon Musk's ambitious Hyperloop tunnel digging plan has been given the green light to go digging on the East Coast, potentially cutting the trip from New York to Washington D.C. to under half an hour. The news, described by Musk this morning as "verbal government approval" on Twitter, is yet to be confirmed by transport regulators.

Galaxy S8 battery: What you should (and shouldn’t) worry about

Galaxy S8 battery: What you should (and shouldn’t) worry about

If you, upon first hearing that the Galaxy S8 would feature a 3,000mAh battery, were concerned that it wouldn't be adequate enough, you're not alone. Many expressed concerns that Samsung banked too conservatively on its smaller flagship's battery capacity, and though the S8+ has a larger 3500mAh model, it doesn't matter much in light of the phone's larger overall size. Now that the phone is out and has been subjected to everyday life, are the concerns founded? Yes and no.

Galaxy S8 Bixby Voice: How to get started

This week Samsung's Bixby Voice feature begins to roll out to users everywhere - here's how to get it. This system is a relative long-time-coming, when we consider how long it was since Samsung revealed the feature for the phone.

2018 Mercedes-AMG S63 First Drive: Fiercely relaxing

2018 Mercedes-AMG S63 First Drive: Fiercely relaxing

Throbbing red and scented with bespoke perfume, the 2018 Mercedes-AMG S63's cabin made absolutely clear that, even by Stuttgart's standards, this is no ordinary luxury sedan. Still, to describe the 2018 S-Class as an important car for Mercedes-Benz is to damn it with understatement. What's under its handsome sheet metal doesn't just represent the pinnacle of the automaker's engineering efforts, but in effect sets a roadmap for the rest of its vehicles over the next ten years.
