The Best Cloud Storage of 2017 – An overview of providers

Computing devices are getting more powerful, more varied, and more ubiquitous, but the data storage in these devices hasn't changed that much. We are still beholden to the HDDs, SSDs, and eMMCs or UFS of yesteryears. In fact, the storage story has become even more complicated because each device has its own storage that you have to manage or keep in sync with other devices.

Enter cloud computing and cloud storage, with its promise of being able to access your data anytime, anywhere. Well, as long as you have an Internet connection, that is. It is an inescapable fact of modern day computing life and it pays to know the choices you have. Here are ten of the top cloud storage options this half of the year.

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

At first, I thought Mophie had screwed up.

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

Xbox One X: All of games announced at E3 2017 (with trailers)

E3 2017 is arguably the biggest expo Microsoft has had in years, thanks to the official reveal of the Xbox One X. Though Microsoft spent a fair amount of time talking about the console itself, it used most of its conference time to show off all of the games that will be getting the 4K treatment on Xbox One X. Xbox chief Phil Spencer said there are 42 confirmed games in all, with 22 of those being exclusive titles of some type. Below you can find a list of all the big games announced during the show, along with trailers for each of them.

Keep your eye on $ETH or Ethereum’s major weakness

Keep your eye on $ETH or Ethereum’s major weakness

Investors in Ethereum have seen massive rises in price over the past month - but that's all going to end soon. I'm not certain, of course - nobody can know absolutely what's going to happen in any market, cryptocoin or otherwise. But what I'm seeing and what I'm hearing is that a coin that went from around $240 to nearly $400 in a month isn't going to stick there for long. Not because of investors getting jumpy, necessarily, but because of the reasons for the rise.

The Essential Phone just made a huge carrier mistake

The Essential Phone just made a huge carrier mistake

The Essential Phone may have made a huge misstep, with Andy Rubin showing that, while he knows how to make a slick phone, he may be behind the curve on carrier sentiment. Launched to no small amount of fanfare in late May, the Android smartphone puts refined design, cutting-edge technology, and modular extensibility at the fore. However, the bad news chaser is the network it'll be an in-store carrier exclusive with.

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.

ARMS review: Nintendo succeeds with its surprisingly fun fighting twist

ARMS review: Nintendo succeeds with its surprisingly fun fighting twist

I have no problem admitting that ARMS has caught me off guard. What I'd initially written off as “just another motion control game” for a largely post-motion control world has turned out to be a very interesting and refreshing take on the fighting genre. Before we dive into the review, though, you should know ahead of time that these impressions are coming from someone who doesn't necessarily consider himself a fighting game fan.

2018 Honda Accord Prototype First Drive: All-new 2.0 Turbo packs a surprise

2018 Honda Accord Prototype First Drive: All-new 2.0 Turbo packs a surprise

That’s right folks, Honda’s turbocharging the all-new model year 2018 with a new 2.0-liter direct injection turbo-four. In a recent event held at Honda’s R&D facility in Tochigi Prefecture, Japan, I got a taste not only of the new engine but also the similarly-fresh 10-speed automatic transmission the automaker has been working on. The fun didn’t stop there: wrapped up inside a Civic test mule was the Accord’s other engine option, a 1.5-liter turbo-four CVT, waiting for me to take it on a couple of laps at the proving grounds.

2018 Audi A5 / S5 Sportback First Drive: Luxury SUV alternative for a wagon-less world

2018 Audi A5 / S5 Sportback First Drive: Luxury SUV alternative for a wagon-less world

What a cruel joke the American automotive market continues to play on the once-proud station wagon. At a time when new car buyers seem determined to turn their backs on traditional sedans in favor of SUVs and crossovers of all shapes and sizes, manufacturers are equally resolute in their desire to leave the just-as-practical wagon in the lurch. Audi, a company which produces beautiful long-roofs that are sold everywhere but here, has been forced to play the game, too. In doing so, however, it's tapped into a level of style that has produced some of the most appealing luxury options for the cargo-friendly set: the Audi A7 / S7 twins, and their new, more affordable siblings, the 2018 Audi A5 and S5 Sportback.
