Super Mario Odyssey's weird new controls are actually great

Super Mario Odyssey is Nintendo’s biggest holiday release, and it’s a big shift for the series. I got to spend a few short minutes demoing the game at E3 earlier this year, and I walked away with similar impressions to those of my colleague Andrew Webster : Odyssey seemed hard and complicated, especially when it came to the unwieldy controls centered around Mario’s new sentient hat friend, Cappy. In the intervening months, every time I’ve s...

Porsche’s all-electric Tesla rival could cost less than $100,000

While automakers have been not-so-quietly making promises to catch up to the likes of Tesla when it comes to electric vehicle range, a sports car maker may be the first to beat the startup at its own game.

How long should a $999 iPhone last?

I usually spend about $1,300 on a new computer, and I usually expect it to stay in good shape for about four years — if not more.

Smartphones have never had the longevity that modern computers have, often staying current for only two or so years. There are a good number of reasons why: For one, smartphones are historically cheaper, so it makes sense that c...

Apple’s new iPhone X is billed as “ the future of the smartphone ,” with new facial recognition and augmented reality features presented as the credentials to back up this claim. But these features wouldn’t be half as slick without a little bit of hidden futurism tucked away in the phone’s new A11 Bionic chip: Apple’s new “neural engine.” The neural engine is actually a pair of processing cores dedicated to handling “specific machine learni...
