Razer Basilisk review

The problem with gaming mice  is that they all have just one purpose – that is, to be a mouse. There’s only so much you can cram into the palm-sized device, and only so many ways manufacturers can differentiate their products from the competitors without a profound change in the general mouse design. There’s no gaming-changing mouse, and likely never will be, so companies are looking for unique ways to make their solutions “special.” Enter ...

Where to find an SNES Classic

The SNES Classic is finally here. For those who missed out on the incredibly finite pre-orders or midnight release, that means lining up outside of your local retailer to hopefully snag the nostalgic plug-and-play console  when new shipments come in, or crossing your fingers that you can get one online.

‘Blade Runner 2049’ stalls out after strong start, still wins the box office

Why it matters to you This week's box office winner is a film 35 years in the making, but it still fell short of expectations despite positive reviews.

Google Maps finally sorts error that’s been troubling tourists for years

Tesla Model 3: Performance, specs, and news

One investor even predicts the Model 3 will bring BMW 3 Series sales to zero — at least until Munich’s finest adopts some form of electrification. That’s because the all-electric ...

Low light? No problem — Smart new drone camera can see in the dark

Why it matters to you Bright light? Low light? This new camera helps drones fly autonomously no matter what the lighting. For a drone to navigate autonomously requires it to have an extremely good sense of its own location. That’s especially tricky indoors, where GPS — the technology used by all commercial drones — doesn’t work. One way around this is to use onboard sensors, such as lasers or cameras. However, lasers are expensive and consu...
