Why did CyanogenMod die? What is LineageOS? All the important details

The Cyanogen company did not shut down, nor did the operating system CyanogenMod - it'll just change names. CyanogenMod OS will rebrand as LineageOS and will be separate from Cyanogen Inc., the company, which will operate separate from the open source OS. Those with CyanogenMod installed on phones or tablets right now should consider installing a more basic version of Android now, as no new support for the operating system will be offered.

Your AirPods now pause Spotify on macOS; new Touch Bar support

Apple's sensor-packed AirPods have gained another talent, pausing Spotify on macOS, which is welcome news for those not devoted to Apple Music. The Spotify update embraces the auto-pause technology that, when you remove an AirPod from your ear, automatically stops the music you're listening to. When you put the AirPod back in - for instance, if you've finished whatever conversation you were having - it'll resume playback.

The 5 Most Impressive New Cars I Drove In 2016

The 5 Most Impressive New Cars I Drove In 2016

I'm fortunate in that I have the opportunity to drive almost every new car that makes it to the market in any given calendar year. With roughly 100 steering wheels passing through my hands over that period of time, you might be surprised to learn that very few cars, trucks, or SUVs make it onto my 'naughty' list - that is to say, automobiles have become so universally competent that it's fairly difficult to buy one that's objectively 'bad' in any meaningful way.

2018 Audi Q5 First Drive: Evolution in action

2018 Audi Q5 First Drive: Evolution in action

The Q5 is hands-down Audi’s numero uno: its top-seller and, in my humble opinion, one of the best premium crossovers on the market today. First introduced back in 2008, the Q5 sold over 1.5-million in its first generation worldwide. Undeniably a home-run hit, then, and with good reason, an Audi knows just the buyer it's selling to and what they want. Why mess with a winning formula?

The Best Games of 2016: Pokemon Sun and Moon

The Best Games of 2016: Pokemon Sun and Moon

You may not know this about me, but Pokemon and I go way back. From the moment my mom bought me a Game Boy Pocket and a copy of Pokemon Blue at the now-closed KB Toys in my local mall, I've been hooked. I wasn't the only one either, and in the past 20 years, Pokemon has become as much of a cultural sensation as Superman or Mickey Mouse. In that time, though, the series hasn't strayed much from its tried-and-true formula. That all changed with Pokemon Sun and Moon.

Uber and Volvo’s self-driving cars are in California purgatory

Uber and Volvo’s self-driving cars are in California purgatory

Uber's self-driving cars have been strong-armed off the road, with the California DMV yanking the vehicles' registrations after the ride-sharing firm refused to apply for proper permits. The fleet of sixteen customized Volvo XC90 SUVs had courted controversy, after Uber first set them loose in San Francisco without bothering to secure autonomous vehicle licenses, then refused to concede to the DMV's demands to freeze the trials. It leaves Uber's self-driving project - and indeed the plans Volvo has for autonomous vehicles - in potential disarray.

Apple Watch could slim down with this interesting new patent

The Apple Watch could get a little bit slimmer in future iterations if ideas in a new Apple patent ever see the light of day. The patent application in question details a haptic motor that takes up residence in the band of the watch instead of the watch itself.

Year of the Linux desktop: better luck next time

Year of the Linux desktop: better luck next time

Every upcoming new year has been predicted, or wished rather, to be the year when the Linux operating system in its desktop form would finally explode into the mainstream. That has actually become a thorny subject among Linux advocates and sometimes even a running joke among both believers and skeptics alike. After so many tries, dating back to even before the popular Ubuntu was released, is there still hope for the Linux desktop? Or perhaps the question is whether it still matters at all.

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor First Drive: The Epic Baja Monster

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor First Drive: The Epic Baja Monster

I’ve waited nearly a year to drive the all new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor unveiled at last year’s North America International Auto Show (NAIAS). Twelve long months. As I found at high speed among the sand dunes of Anza Borrego in Southern California, the wait was well worth it and Ford did not disappoint. No mere publicity stunt to give the F-150 a sales halo, the new Raptor more than exceeded my expectations.
