Don't bin your Chromecast quite yet... looks like Matchstick bit off more than they could chew.
Would-be Chromecast rival Matchstick has pulled the plug on its streaming dongle, after headaches with Firefox DRM proved insurmountable. The company raised more than $470,000 in crowdfunding cash ...

640 HP. 200 mph top speed. 0-60 in 3.7 seconds.

Those are some ridiculous numbers from a big luxury sedan.

There's a moment, just after you start up the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V, when the seat belt gently contracts around you, almost like the 640 horsepower super-sedan is giving you a hug. It's a reassuring ...

+Søren Siim Nielsen Tesla is a beast in instant acceleration and no gas and the tax breaks are great (had a fear of needing to go somewhere after work and running out of power so didnt get the tesla), but, in handling and driving, cts bests it hands down. Drive both, see for yourself.

I confess, the original #OnePlus phone didn't really excite me. It felt a little underdeveloped, raw perhaps.

This #OnePlus2, though, is another story. The hardware design matches the ambitious specs for a start, and the price is very, very competitive.

My questions really are more about supply and wait list management - if OnePlus can get that right, this deserves to be a success.

Seldom are the life-lessons so clear when you launch a follow-up product, like the new OnePlus 2 Android smartphone. Born of a desire to cater to the whims of the Android enthusiast, the requests were simple: they wanted power, they wanted affordability,…

Okay, I'm in love. +Mazda USA has a winner in the 2016 MX-5 #Miata, even if I did swear at the roof a little in our video...

It's close to being a miracle that the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata exists. As the cars around it get bigger, more luxurious, and more insulated from the road beneath them, and as semi-autonomous technolo...

I wish they would drop the Miata name and stick with MX-5.

Is this a new metric? 

The boot, whilst not cavernous, had the capacity of 0.5 Chris Davies.

How much does camera performance shape your buying decision?
 
This past week we ran a Blind Camera Test between the LG G4, the Samsung Galaxy S6, and the iPhone 6 with a number of photos taken in low-lighting environments. We placed photos taken by each smartphone next to one another without the names of their…

Oh, this slippery slope. I think if there's only one great thing about my job, it's that it has probably saved me from bankrupting myself ten times over with gadgets and tech I don't really need.

That's why I take reviews seriously, because I always have in mind that someone out there might be using my words to justify their upgrade lust, and so I want them to make a good decision.

Ah, that slippery slope. 
I used to be a real photography gear head, I bought and sold cameras right and left, I was left broke and miserable, here's what you can learn from my ordeal

Pro-tip: Don't sing if you're wearing a microphone while Vince is recording footage for your +Mazda USA MX-5 Miata video.

Writer, tech-lover & glasses-wearing cynic
Introduction
Tech writer who fell into online journalism by mistake. Loves coffee, gadgets, and sarcasm.

Android and Apple-using, Windows Phone apologizing, webOS-reminsicing multi-platform lover who'd rather use the tools that work best for the job than cling to a single brand for loyalty's sake. Current obsession is augmented/mediated reality and wearables, along with home automation, robotics, and the comically named "internet of things". Sucker for slick hardware with flashing lights and buttons.

Google+ is swell for its conversation potential and the generally high quality of discussion over here. Expect the occasional food post, funny video, and (passive) enjoyment of whimsical cat photos.
