This influence includes things like making people taller and reducing one’s … Continue reading
  • Uber denies Waymo self-driving tech theft

    Uber has denied stealing autonomous car technology from Alphabet’s Waymo, after the Google spin-off accused the ride-sharing firm of copying its sensor technology.

  • Ford GT Competition Series puts supercar on a diet

    Take the super-exclusive Ford GT, trim what little fat you might be able to find, and you end up with this: the Ford GT Competition Series.

That includes ditching the creature comforts, … Continue reading

    Tesla has pulled out the big guns in its campaign to bypass traditional dealerships, warning US states they stand to miss out on potentially huge tax income.

    Ford has taken the wraps off its new 2018 Fiesta ST, a punchy little hot-hatch that bucks the trend in terms of engines. Revealed initially in European-market form, the new Fiesta ST eschews the typical four-cylinder engine you’d expect to find under its hood, and instead goes the three-cylinder EcoBoost route. In fact, it’s a mere 1.5-liter example, though Ford … Continue reading

  • Moto Mod with slider QWERTY keyboard coming to Indiegogo

    Smartphones with physical QWERTY keyboards aren’t unheard of but aren’t exactly many. Even fewer are those with keyboards that slide out.

That kind of form factor hasn’t been seen since perhaps the Motorola DROID 4, but soon that might appear again, coincidentally in another Motorola smartphone. No, … Continue reading
  • Honor VR Camera is a custom-made Insta360 Air

    It’s actually been a while since we’ve seen new equipment that tries to actually create VR-related content rather than just consuming them.

Some of those come from Insta360, a company that specializes in smartphone-compatible 360-degree cameras. It … Continue reading

That is why the SD Association, the industry group tasked … Continue reading

While it might not exactly be the toughest nor the most powerful, it may have … Continue reading
  • Googles WhatsApp-rivaal krijgt webversie

    Het is Google tot nu toe niet gelukt om een een goede concurrent van Whatsapp te ontwikkelen. Dat komt mede doordat de chatdienst Google Allo, vorig jaar gelanceerd, nog alleen beschikbaar is op mobiele platformen. Ook kun je er nog niet mee bellen naar gewone nummers.
    Binnenkort krijgt Google Allo wel een versie die op computers werkt. Via Twitter toonde Google-manager Nick Fox een sneakpreview de webversie van Allo. "Nog in een vroeg stadium van ontwikkeling, maar hij komt naar je...

  • Apple lost probleem uitvallende iPhones 'grotendeels' op

    De bug zat in de laatste versies van iOS en zorgde ervoor dat gebruikers met een iPhone 6, 6 Plus 6S en 6S Plus hun toestel plotseling zagen uitvallen. Vaak helpt dan alleen het aansluiten aan een oplader om het toestel weer aan te zetten, ook al is de accu nog niet leeg.
    Volgens Apple zorgt een oplossing in iOS 10.2.1 er bij de meeste gebruikers voor dat de bug niet meer optreedt. Bij iPhone 6S-gebruikers is het aantal uitvallen met ruim 80 procent verminderd, bij iPhone 6-eigenaren met meer...

  • Eerste indruk Asus ZenFone 3: goede prijs, maar te laat

    Eerste Indruk
    Een premium telefoon met een aantrekkelijke prijs: dat is het idee achter de Zenfone 3. Het apparaat kost 349 euro maar ziet eruit alsof hij 750 euro kost. De Zenfone 3 komt ook nog in een duurdere versie van 399 euro. Het enige verschil is dat deze variant in plaats van 3GB werkgeheugen en 32GB opslagruimte juist 4GB en 64GB heeft, en een iets grotere accu. De duurdere versie testen wij.
    Het design van de Zenfone 3 bestaat...
