MacBook Pro With OLED Panel
Apple's MacBook Pro hasn't seen a compelling refresh in quite some time, but that's all about to change later this year. As we covered just last week, Apple later this fall is planning to release a completely revamped MacBook Pro outfitted with a Touch ID sensor and an OLED display panel located where the function keys usually reside.

There’s probably about $150 worth of components in this $14,000 phone

Solarin Military Grade Phone
I never needed to buy a smartphone that had “military-grade” protection, but not all smartphone users are alike. Some people may value insanely complex security – or they just like the idea of using something that's "military-grade." The Solarin, pictured above, is supposed to be a high-end phone that has high-end security features built in. Unfortunately, it comes from a company that has no track record, it costs $14,000, and it's not really as high-end as you would have hoped.

Opinion: Siri should be interconnected between devices before an SDK is released

When Siri originally launched on the iPhone a little over four years ago, we postulated that it would be a world-changing event. A personal assistant in our pockets that could handle real-world requests felt like the future. When it launched onto the Apple Watch, it was described as potentially being the quickest and most fun way to interact with the wearable. Then when it came to  the Apple TV, it became the fastest way to disseminate the content you want to watch across multiple apps.

Google Home is little more than a ‘dressed-up version of Chromecast’

Google Home Specs
One of the biggest reveals to come out of Google I/O two weeks ago was Google Home, a voice-activated virtual assistant meant to rival the likes of Amazon's Echo. The device was met with a great deal of fanfare, but a new report from The Information might be enough to put a little damper on the excitement.

We can usually get a decent idea of what the insides of an upcoming Mac will look like thanks to announcements from part manufacturers.

Here’s how badly the internet thought new ‘Top Gear’ sucked

Chris Evans Top Gear Reactions
Anyone with two functioning eyes and one half-decent brain cell watching the broadcast of new Top Gear on Sunday knows that the show was bad. But how do you put that kind of terrible into words?
