Having secured their position, Honda has been playing around. The Navi was a fun (and popular) take on the scooter, ... Read More »

The big differentiating factor from the S series has been bigger screens and the  S-Pen stylus, and this formula has worked well for Samsung for years now. However, ever since the Galaxy S6 Edge+, the company has been fragmenting ... Read More »

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider review: A fine follow-up to a stealth masterwork

The biggest flaw with Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is that it released after Dishonored 2. Memories of Dishonored 2’s busted PC launch are still all-too-easily conjured up in my mind, but there’s another aspect we don’t talk about as often: Its level design. Here’s an excerpt from my review last year: “Dishonored 2 takes first-person stealth to new heights…As far as this type of Thief-style steal-everything-that-isn’t-nailed-down stealth ... Read More »

Crucial BX300 SSD review: One of the fastest MLC SATA SSDs we’ve tested

You may color us surprised any time we receive an SSD such as Crucial’s new BX300 that’s not based on 3D TLC NAND. Actually, you may color us delighted. MLC NAND, even 3D (aka stacked, layered, tiered, etc) like that used in the BX300, can consistently perform near the limit of SATA 6Gbps, where TLC generally can’t. Once you exceed ... Read More »

Volkswagen Golf GTE 2018 review

It might look like a regular Volkswagen Golf. Even one with the flavour of the sporty GTI. But, like Clark Kent, this mild-mannered hatch has amazing superpowers hidden beneath an unassuming exterior. It’s the Golf GTE, a plug-in hybrid heading our way in 2018, and an updated version of the car we preview tested in 2016. Explore the 2018 Volkswagen Golf Range Volkswagen ... Read More »

Super Soco review, price, specs and details: Could this be the Tesla of motorcycles?

The first time I rode a moped, I immediately crashed it into a parked car near my house. Just ramped up onto the pavement like Steve McQueen and smashed into a Fiesta, causing several pounds worth of damage. I was 15 years of age, which is so long ago now that no policeman can arrest me for it. The second ... Read More »

Moto Z2 Force review: A modular phone with very few tricks

Motorola is back with another modular smartphone—the Moto Z2 Force—proving it’s not going to be deterred by death of Project Ara (Google’s experimental take on modular phones), or LG’s decision to walk away from modularity in its transition from the G5 to the G6. This leaves Motorola sitting alone on an island. So what’s going on? Are phones with snap-on accessories like 360-degree cameras, battery ... Read More »
