iPhone 13 may be Apple’s biggest bounce yet

Analytical group TrendForce suggested this week that iPhone shipments are "expected to undergo a 30% YoY increase in 3Q21."

2022 BMW iX3 debuts in China with mild styling updates

Only two years after debuting in China, the 2022 BMW iX3 has appeared with numerous styling updates.

Motorola Edge S Pro signals Moto finally be ready to compete in USA again

It's been just over a year since we got our hands on the Motorola Edge+, a device that we described as "beauty nearly to a fault." Now Motorola has a new set of devices with "Edge" in the name, but without so much emphasis on the idea that the display needs to cascade off the left and right of the machine. Motorola has not yet released equivalents to the "Motorola Edge S Pro" and "Edge Light Luxury Edition" here in the USA, but this week's push to China could very well be the tease we've been waiting for.
