The class-action lawsuit alleges that Disney is violating the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). The law, passed in 1998, was designed to protect the privacy of children online.

iPhone 8 vs. iPhone 7s

Throughout the year, most iPhone 8 reports said that Apple is launching three handsets this year, including the natural successors of last year’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and an iPhone flagship that will propose buyers features that were never available on an iPhone.

Elon Musk is predicting ridiculous Model 3 demand in the future

Tesla Model 3

For as popular as Tesla's Model 3 already is, Tesla CEO Elon Musk believes that demand for the company's mass market EV may increase dramatically in the near future. While speaking with investors during a conference call hosted by Goldman Sachs this week, Musk articulated that annual demand for the Model 3 could eventually surpass 700,000 units. As a point of reference, the cumulative number of Model 3 reservations currently checks in at more than 500,000, an impressive figure to say the least,

T-Mobile REVVL: Price, release date

T-Mobile is getting into the smartphone game. The T-Mobile REVVL is the carrier's first own-brand smartphone in years, and on paper, it's a good deal. The device costs just $125, and for that, you get a 5.5-inch screen, unnamed quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera, and even a fingerprint sensor.

The specs are nearly identical to every other budget Android phone out there -- and for good reason, as the phone is likely made by ZTE or one of the other Chinses companies that pumps out smartphones for someone else to put their brand on.

You can even give house guests or workers temporary e-keys using the August app so they can access your home for a limited amount of time. All these features and more are a bargain at $230, but you won’t pay that much if you snag one on sale right now on Amazon.

  • Control your door with your smartphone.
  • Keep your existing deadbolt. Installs in minutes on the inside of your door.
  • Grant or restrict access to visitors anytime.

New iPhone 8 leak points to huge jump in video quality
