Handheld gaming has been around for decades, though it is Nintendo that has reaped most of the rewards. That is true even today with its hybrid Switch and mobile-only Switch Lite consoles.

In fact, it doesn't even have a SIM card slot, and instead relies on eSIM technology. Now, Meizu has announced that it is looking to bring the Zero to market via... Read more...

It's why when you go out in public, you often see people staring incessantly at their smartphones instead... Read more...
Retro gaming is all the rage right now, fueled in large part by Nintendo's NES Classic Edition and SNES Classic Edition game consoles, both of which are incredibly scarce (in relation to demand).

The same can't be said for wine, the delicious, intoxicating nectar that begins degrading in quality the moment you pop the cork.

You can go ahead and add another one to the mix. Meet Ivee, "the first multi-room voice assistant for the home" that draws inevitable comparisons to... Read more...
I may have been wrong about the wearables market. Here's the thing, I still don't think smartwatches are the the next big thing, to borrow a line from Samsung, and I don't see fitness bands being the thing that companies like Apple and Google throw their full weight behind. But what I hadn't considered is that "sex... Read more...
