    Tom Cruise Confirms Top Gun Sequel

    Someone go find Kenny Loggins. The much-rumored sequel to Top Gun is apparently happening, according to Tom Cruise himself. There’s been no official confirmation from any studios yet (Paramount would own the rights), but if we can’t trust Tom Cruise on Top Gun matters, who can we trust? What I imagine will either be called Topper Gun or Topmost Gun will […]

    Well, there’s still going to be some forgiveness in order for yet another Spider-Man reboot, but it looks like Peter Parker’s full introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be worth it. With Tony Stark in as mentor, this looks like the Spider-Man fans have been waiting for. The latest trailer strikes the same fun, […]

    Netflix for Xbox is finally here. No, we don’t mean that literally — actual Netflix has been on the Xbox for a while.

    Kodak Brings Their Photography-Focused Ektra Smartphone to the U.S.A.

    Not too many people expected Kodak to get into smartphones last year, but that’s just what they did with the Ektra (kind of — Kodak lent their name to it, but Bullitt manufactured it). The longtime photography company wanted to make waves with a smartphone that looked and felt like a camera, with the photography […]

    V-Moda Forza Metallo Wireless Review

    In November of last year, we heard about three new headphones coming from V-Moda, including the V-Moda Forza Metallo Wireless. The Milan-based premium audio firm excels in sound, but exercise buds usually sacrifice audio quality to be lightweight, using tiny and often tinny drivers. Given that they’ve got a reputation to keep up, we figured […]

    The Huawei MateBook X is an Ultra-thin, Premium Laptop With Amazing Audio

    Huawei gave us a bit of a surprise last year when they introduced the MateBook, a 2-in-1 detachable running Windows 10. It wasn’t a bad effort, but we thought the battery life was a bit short. Otherwise, it got the same criticisms all 2-in-1 detachables get — it couldn’t be easily used in the lap and […]

    Intel Revs Up Their Autonomous Driving Plans With a New Lab in Silicon Valley

    In the past few years, almost every major tech company has become, at least in part, an automotive company. We’re not talking about manufacturing, of course — don’t expect to be seeing any Apple or Google cars roaming the roads, even though Tesla managed to pull that trick off from scratch. Instead, tech companies are working […]

    The New HP Spectre x2 is the Latest High-Powered Surface Pro Competitor

    Detachable 2-in-1s — basically, tablets that come with thin keyboard covers — have long been attractive lightweight options for the backpack set, but they’ve been saddled with something of a stigma lately. Outside of the Surface Pro series, most of the options we’ve seen have been powered by Intel Core m processors — while those processors are more […]

    Need to make a fashion statement with your gadgets? Ringly has been helping with that for years now.

    The Panasonic Toughbook 33 2-in-1 Has Been Built for Dirty Work

    The Panasonic Toughbook line of rugged notebooks has been around for a while, but with there being a big need for tablets out in the field, having a detachable 2-in-1 in the line made a lot of sense. That’s what the company has in the Toughbook 33, a hulking, well-protected machine that doesn’t skimp on […]

    These Adorable Minnie Mouse Heels are Like a Trip to Disneyland for Your Feet

    Don’t make the same mistake we did and overlook these gems! A super-cute Minnie Mouse high heel collection has been flying under our radar. They came out last year and, unsurprisingly, sold out real quick. Fortunately, they made a comeback late last year, and it seems they’re still hanging around the internet looking for closets to call […]
