Stan Lee dead at 95: Here’s a list of all the most important heroes he created

Today Stan Lee shuffled off this mortal coil and made his way to Valhalla - or wherever he believed he was headed. He was 95 years young - and rather than focusing on how he died or anything less important, we're going to go right ahead and discuss the massive impact he had on our society.

The 2018 BMW i3s is seriously underrated in one key way

The 2018 BMW i3s is seriously underrated in one key way

In a growing line-up of electrified options, the 2018 BMW i3s still somehow stands out. Much has been made of the i3's divisive external design, and in many ways the new 2018 i3s only exaggerates that: bigger wheels, more aggressive bumpers, and gloss-black trim.

2018 Audi TT RS Review: The Best Luxury Sports Car for the Money

I’ve never been a fan of the Audi TT, the shape is too bulbous for my liking and I’ve found previous generations underpowered. So, it’s fair to say I approached the 2018 TT RS with trepidation. Could this most-potent of the TT family win me over with its balance of practicality and performance?

iPad Pro Review (2018): Am I wrong, or is Apple?

iPad Pro Review (2018): Am I wrong, or is Apple?

Nobody can agree on whether a tablet is a computer, or indeed what a computer really is, and Apple's new iPad Pro only pours fuel into that controversy. Faster, more flexible, and more resolutely targeting professionals who demand performance with their portability, nobody can argue with the fact that the 2018 iPad Pro is Apple's hardware expertise in full effect. Whether it's a replacement for your laptop, though, is a far more personal thing.

AP, video experts confirm White House’s CNN ‘assault’ video doctored to deceive

This week the White House released a video showing CNN reporter Jim Acosta at a press event.

The video shared by the White House was doctored to make this action appear violent.

The Samsung foldable phone has more questions than answers

Samsung is making a foldable phone but, though we've seen the screen, there remain more questions than answers about the Android device and the market for others like it. Previewed at Samsung's opening keynote at its annual developer conference, SDC 2018, the heavily-disguised handset was more about showing off Samsung Display's flexible AMOLED technology than making a pitch to phone buyers themselves.

Samsung’s first foldable phone is a missed opportunity

Samsung’s first foldable phone is a missed opportunity

At long last, Samsung has finally revealed a working prototype of its much-hyped foldable phone. But while it finally gives some sense of closure to years of speculation and leaks, reception and fuss over what could be the market's second foldable phone has been less enthusiastic than expected.
