HTC VIVE sell-off reportedly under consideration

HTC is considering selling off its VIVE virtual reality business, a new report claims, as the smartphone maker weighs possible routes to boosting its finances. An unexpected launch back in early 2015, HTC VIVE has proved surprisingly successful with its combination of immersive VR and its "room-scale" ability to allow users to physically move around virtual worlds. However, at the same time HTC's phone business has struggled in the face of bigger rivals with deeper pockets.

Apple wanted spherical wheels for its autonomous car

Apple may be scaling back its self-driving car plans, but the company had some seriously off-beat ideas for what the autonomous vehicle of the future might look like. Reports earlier in the year suggested Apple had realized the scale of the challenge it was facing, were it to try to develop its own vehicle from scratch, with leaks earlier in the week indicating a "more modest" plan was now underway. That will include a self-driving shuttle for Apple employees, but there's another far more interesting tidbit.

It’s costing Google billions for prime position on iOS

What's three billion dollars between friends (and arch-rivals), right? Google will reportedly drop a cool $3bn into Apple's back pocket this year alone, one analyst firm has suggested, in return for being the default search engine on the iPhone, iPad, and other iOS hardware. Although unconfirmed by either company, it's an indication of just how valuable mobile users are, and how much importance Google places on its role there despite considerable mindshare.

This leaked memo just made Microsoft vs Consumer Reports fascinating

This leaked memo just made Microsoft vs Consumer Reports fascinating

Microsoft's war over Surface reliability with Consumer Reports has taken another unexpected turn, with leaks suggesting a combination of ambition and inexperience led to higher than expected return rates. The two companies came head to head last week, after Consumer Reports took the unexpected decision to strip Microsoft's Surface Book and Surface Laptop of their "recommended" ratings, in addition to warning buyers off the Surface Pro 4. That was down to the worrying results of a survey which suggested Microsoft's laptops and tablets were the least reliable in the industry.

Moto X4 leaks: New Android attack on the midrange

All eyes may be on Motorola's Z2 Force Edition, the modular Android smartphone which went up for sale earlier this week, but waiting in the wings is arguably a more interesting phone. While the Z2 Force Edition may have interchangeable Moto Mods in its favor, Motorola has made a name for itself in recent years for its exceedingly affordable X Series of phones. In their favor, while they may cut price, they don't necessarily sacrifice performance or functionality in the process.

That new iPhone, expected to be one of three handsets Apple launches later in 2017, is believed to be not only the first to use OLED for its display rather than LCD, but also the first to remove the physical home button that has been a mainstay of iPhone since the first-generation model. However, it was unclear what, exactly, Apple might replace it with.
