Microsoft Lumia 950 review: Not a flagship, but a first step — After years of misguided attempts at mobile, Microsoft is ready for a fresh start. While Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 mostly just looked like their desktop counterparts, Windows 10 Mobile aspires to something even more substantial. This time, Microsoft tried to build a mobile platform -- and a phone -- that can seriously replicate some of those big-screen experiences.

Ouch, the Lumia 950 sounds like the first Win 7 phones all over again… A damn shame, expected something evolutionary

ASUS Chromebit review: Turn any display into a Chrome OS machine — If you've got some spare time, search for the words "Android dongle" on eBay -- your screen will be filled with little, Android-powered HDMI doodads that purport to make your dumb TV smart. But what about Chrome OS, Google's other operating system?

Droid Turbo 2 review: What it lacks in style, it makes up for in power — Verizon's line of Droid phones just celebrated its sixth birthday, and what better way to celebrate than by releasing the best device to ever bear the Droid title? I jokingly called Motorola's Droid Turbo 2 "a Moto X Pure on steroids," but there's no denying it packs even more power than its predecessor into a body that's built to take a beating.

Microsoft's Lumia 950 is set for a November 20 launch on AT&T — The wait has been pretty agonizing (for some of you, anyway), but the first batch of Windows 10 phones is almost here. AT&T just announced that it'll be the first -- and possibly only -- carrier in the US to carry the new Lumia 950, which you'll be able order starting tomorrow ahead of a full-blown launch on November 20.

Dyson loses fight to change EU power efficiency label laws — The world of vacuum cleaners isn't exactly known for its gripping legal drama... except maybe for the one Dyson has found itself in recently. After launching legal action against the European Commission last year over new (and potentially discriminatory) energy efficiency rules for vacuum cleaners, Dyson now faces the ugly end of an EU General Court verdict.

Apple iPhone 6s Plus review — The iPhone 6s Plus has 3D Touch, iOS 9, a pair of improved cameras and the powerful A9 chipset, just like its smaller sibling. A long-lasting...

Apple iPhone 6s review — The iPhone 6s keeps the same design as the iPhone 6, but packs better cameras, a snappier processor and 3D Touch, a smart new way to get thin...

T-Mobile's 'Binge On' lets you stream video, leave your data untouched — T-Mobile CEO John Legere is on a bit of a tear over in Los Angeles right now - after doubling the amount of mobile data T-Mo customers will get as part of the carrier's Simple Choice Amped plans, he confirmed the existence of a Music Freedom-like feature for video services.

TAG Heuer's Connected is a $1,500 Android Wear watch you can trade in — Before we kitted them out with high-res AMOLED screens and WiFi, luxury watches were the sort of thing you could occasionally wind up and pass down through the ages. With its new Connected smartwatch (seriously, its name is "Connected") TAG Heuer thinks it's captured "eternity in a box" and restored that sense of legacy to an otherwise obsolescing wearable.

TAG Heuer’s smartwatch trade-in seems silly. Why would you forego the very reason you bought your watch?…

Someone buy Tag's $1500 smartwatch so I can ask what it's like to have more money than sense…

Google's self-driving cars are more cautious around kids — If you've got spawn traipsing through the streets of Mountain View in search of sweets tonight, you needn't fear Google's self-driving cars... much. While there's something a little unsettling about an autonomous car -- even a cute one -- coming at you on Halloween, Google says they're at least programmed to act differently around children.
