Welcome to the inevitable result of HomePod's odd furniture ring issue: coasters specially designed for Apple's speaker.

Apple AirPods explosion now under investigation

Or in this case, had happened. It wasn't a phone this time, or even a now forgotten and poorly-named hoverboard.

Lexip gaming mouse has two joysticks for all your movement needs

Lexip gaming mouse has two joysticks for all your movement needs

The venerable computer mouse was never really envisioned to be anything beyond a pointing device. It definitely wasn’t envisioned to be a gaming input device. And yet the mouse, along with the keyboard, has practically defined and differentiated PC gaming from other forms of gaming. That, however, doesn’t mean it’s not in dire need of an innovation. But while most gaming mice simply throw in more buttons, more sensitivity, or more light into the equation, Lexip is doing something different. It is, instead, throwing in not one but two joysticks inside the mouse.

Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows available now at last

How long does it take to launch a USB dongle for a wireless game controller? If you’re Microsoft, apparently half a year. Announced way back in August, the Wireless Adapter for the older Xbox One Controllers was going to be delayed, at least for the US market, and that a January 1, 2018 launch was pretty tentative.

Now Motorola is back and this time it added something it should have provided in the first place: protection for your Moto Z phone courtesy of Corning’s Gorilla Glass.

Essential Phone: fixing the slippery backside

Essential Phone: fixing the slippery backside

The Essential Phone PH-1 has a very slippery body. It's frontside is covered with a pane of reinforced glass, and its back is mostly ceramic. The phone is a good weight (not to heavy, not too light,) but in combination with the front or back lying on any surface at even very small angles, the PH-1 slides right off and down, down to the surface of the floor or ground below.

512GB microSD card exists: here’s when it’s coming

What is the largest capacity microSD (technically microSDXC) card in the market today? If you answered SanDisk’s tiny 400 GB card launched last August, then you’re woefully out of date.
