Today's mobile electronic gadgets run on batteries of one kind or another, and when they run out, you either have to swap the battery for a fresh one (if that's an option) or find an outlet to start the tedious process of recharging.

There have been so many quality games to come out this year that it's hard to tell if Bethesda's latest epic, Fallout 4, will come out on top, but it sure has a good chance to.

You have to be careful when buying cables, especially ones based on the relatively new USB Type-C spec. That's true even if you limit your purchases to vendors like Amazon and, apparently, phone makers like OnePlus. When it comes to shaming companies for non-compliant Type-C cables, Google engineer Benson Leung is an... Read more...
We — along with countless other observers — have questioned Microsoft’s Windows 10 Mobile strategy before, but it doesn’t seem like the company has any intentions of adding new launch partners for its Lumia 950 and 950 XL flagship Windows 10 Mobile smartphones. The phone will only be available on contract or with... Read more...

It's sure been an interesting month for HTC. When the company introduced its One A9 in late October, it looked like a solid offering overall, even if it looked like it plucked some design cues from Apple's iPhone (something an HTC exec vehemently denies). Things became odd, though, when the company bumped the phone's price up to $499, when Read more...
At this point, Halo 5 hasn't even been out for an entire month, but it's already proving to be one of the hottest, most fun titles of the year. And you if not for the fact that a certain little title called Fallout 4 just came out, Halo 5 would still be the market's current darling. As we reported at the start of the... Read more...

Over the past five or so years, Microsoft has really warmed up to beta testers. More than any other Windows before it, Windows 10 had an incredible amount of community effort behind it, and before the OS officially launched, many complaints and criticisms led it to arguably be the smoothest Windows launch ever. Of... Read more...
As we discovered just the other day, Apple's latest iPad, Pro, isn't too repairable, scoring just 3 out of 10 on iFixit's scale - 10 being the best. Somewhat humorously, that's still a lot better the 1 out of 10 score the Surface Book received earlier this month. Nonetheless, the teardown helped highlight a feature... Read more...
During what should have been an ordinary Friday night in Paris, Islamic State terrorists ambushed a handful of locations to take the lives of more than 120 unfortunate souls.

MAINGEAR piles on the platitudes, proclaiming, “The RUSH is the James Bond of gaming desktops. It is lethal, resourceful and powerful, but elegant, cool and... Read more...
Sometimes, it's enlightening to see what people are willing to do in order to bring the rest of us joy. Take stop motion animation, for example.
