Given how many details OnePlus has leaked over the past few months regarding its next generation flagship smartphone, there wasn’t much left to the imagination for prospective buyers other than the price. And that was even hinted at earlier this month, when OnePlus CEO Pete Lau remarked that the device would be priced below $450. The OnePlus

Someone at #Samsung had their thinking caps on with this one. #Wireless  charging is a natural here. 
Here’s another innovative product straight from the “Why didn’t I think of that?” file. Samsung has introduced the new SE370 gaming monitor series which brings clutter-free, wireless charging support for your smartphone (or other supported mobile devices). Wireless (inductive) charging is accomplished using the Qi wireless standard, which

Over the past twenty years Amazon has grown from a company selling books out of a garage to an online retailer that dabbles in everything from streaming video to Android-based tablets/phones to web services that have become a $6 billion business for the company. Amazon has also ventured out into grocery business in recent years with AmazonFresh,

Among the vast number of improvements coming with Windows 10 is an overhauling of the Windows Store. Versus other app stores, many would argue that Microsoft's hasn't been that exciting. It's also had a bad problem of stocking too many redundant and knock-off apps, as well as open source / free software sold by third-parties. Simply put, the

Someone fetch the party favors and candles, we have a birthday to celebrate. Google's streaming Chromecast dongle just turned two years old, but don't worry about bringing gifts to the celebration. Just as Google did when the Chromecast turned one, the company is flipping the script and giving away goodies to anyone who owns or purchases the

Doom’s official launch isn’t until the Spring of 2016, but you’re going to have a couple chances to scratch that itch while you wait. For one thing, QuakeCon 2015 is underway this weekend and Bethesda is expected to give some attendees a crack at a pre-Alpha version of Doom multiplayer. For another, the company is gearing up for the Doom Multiplayer

The future of war could be drastically different than the wars of today, and we'd have artificial intelligence (AI) to "thank" for it. I use "thank" in quotes, because the potential of AI war machines is truly scary, and it makes me ill to think of their potential. Closing my eyes, I can envision future news stories of how AI-controlled drones

The folks at OnePlus haven't just proven that they're capable of producing a great smartphone, they've proven that they're marketing geniuses. Despite the fact that the OnePlus One was the company's first-ever smartphone, its "Never Settle" tagline and exclusivity made it one hot product. I couldn't believe the number of people I knew that

Magnolia Pictures and Magnet Releasing posted an official trailer for Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine, an upcoming documentary that details the life of the late Apple co-founder. Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney directed the flick, though whether or not the movie's portrayal of Jobs is accurate is a topic of debate. This

Just over month ago, Bethesda quenched the appetites of longtime Fallout fanatics with gameplay footage of Fallout 4. But that wasn’t all that Bethesda had in store for fans, it also released Fallout Shelter, a mobile app which lets you take charge of your own underground nuclear shelter. At the time, the Fallout Shelter was only made available

We reported earlier this week that a Jeep Cherokee could be remotely accessed and controlled, and I wouldn't blame anyone for being a skeptic. After all, what are the chances of someone remote being able to disable the transmission? Well, with Fiat Chrysler's response, I think that question has been answered. In a press statement issued
