While looks aren't everything when it comes to vehicles, it certainly adds that extra bling that would most likely turn heads when you drive down the road. For this article we've compiled 5 gorgeous and sporty cars that won't break your bank (not so much, at least).

GoPro has just announced its latest member of the Hero action camera -- the GoPro Hero4 Session / Surf. The Hero4 Session is the 5th generation action cam and the smallest of the entire family. It's around 50% smaller and 40% lighter than the Hero4 Black. The Hero4 Session is capable of 8MP stills and 1080p video at 60fps. What makes it different from the older GoPro models is that the Hero4 Session can go underwater naked and up to 10 meters. T...

This un-identified Filipino-owned ice-maker machine turns ice-water into ice is a matter of seconds. Watch this amateur video on how they make ice water into ice by merely dipping it into a bath of cold water.

This year, we're already expecting Apple to announce the iPhone 6S and perhaps the iPhone 6S Plus later this year. We collated all the speculations recently reported to paint a better picture of Apple's upcoming iPhone. 1) The iPhone 6S will more or less be using the same design and measurements as the old iPhone 6. 9to5mac.com has some photos of what could be the insides of the iPhone 6S. This means most cases and accessories of the iPhone 6 w...

Launched last June 2 in Singapore, the Huawei P8 is the latest flagship together with the phablet counterpart, the P8 Max. Check out our full review of the Huawei P8 after the break. It is no secret that Huawei wants to be the next Samsung of handsets. They made it very clear during the global and regional launch when they openly compared the P8 to the Galaxy S6 and the iPhone 6. We are not surprised. Huawei is the 3rd largest smartphone brand i...

Our recent trip to the US ended up with a few nice toys during a visit to a couple of Best Buy stores. Among them is the recently announced LG Watch Urbane, the latest Android smartwatch from LG.

We've been receiving report from users and readers that Samsung has started rolling out Android 5.1.1. Lollipop upgrades to all Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge handsets in the Philippines. However, it's only now that we've personally gotten the upgrade on our Galaxy S6 (open line) and Galaxy S6 Edge (Globe-locked) units. The update is about 624MB in size and brings a lot of stability improvements, security features, UI enhancements as well as better perfo...
