Senior mobile editor @Engadget. I've got war in my bones.

Moto Z and Z Force Droid review: The risks are mostly worth it — View View View View Motorola's new flagships are metal, modular and mostly exciting. Note: For the sake of brevity, I'm not going to bother calling these things "Droid Editions" for the rest of the review. At 5.2mm thick, the Moto Z is the thinnest flagship phone I've ever used, and it's just stunning.

British Rapper Buys First Pair Of Nike Air Mags For $37.5K — Just... wow. It was sort of a given that Nike's limited edition, McFly-inspired Air Mag sneakers would be fetching pretty pennies on eBay, but TMZ reports British rap act Tinie Tempah spent more than he thought he would on the first pair up for grabs. The cost of his impulse decision: a cool $37,500.

What you need to know about the FCC's 5G vote — If you're looking for speedy execution of ideas, the FCC might not be the best example. This whole process began in October 2014, when the FCC issued what's called a Notice of Inquiry -- basically a request for input -- about using spectrum bands above 24 GHz for "Mobile Radio Services."

I accidentally broke the super-rugged Cat S60 smartphone — It is hardy, by the way. The bulky body is rated to handle drops as high as 1.8 meters (just about 6 feet), and its Micro USB and headphone jacks can be sealed.

iOS 10 preview: Apple's software takes a big step forward — Now, back to the big, bold aesthetic Apple is pushing this year: It can be hard to avoid. Perhaps the best example of this is the radically redesigned Music app, which is... divisive, to say the least. It's all about punchy colors and extreme legibility.

Sony Xperia X Performance review: $700 worth of disappointment — Even though the X Performance is the highest-end of the four Xperia phones Sony plans to launch in the US, you wouldn't be able to tell just by looking at it. In fact, do yourself a favor: Don't put an Xperia X Performance down next to a regular Xperia X, because you'd probably never tell them apart.

Amazon made flipping through books on Kindles and tablets easier — PageFlip, in short, is basically the digital equivalent of sticking your thumb between two pages and scouting through the rest of a book looking for the juicy bits. If you're using the Kindle app on a tablet or phone, tapping on a page gives you a zoomed-out view of that page, along with a progress bar along the bottom to mark your place in the book.

Experimental Zika vaccine approved for human trials — As points out, the thing to remember here is that this trial is meant to determine the vaccine's safety and proper dosage levels in humans. Assuming this first round yields valuable results, further trials will see the vaccine given to people actually infected with Zika.

OnePlus 3 review: The best phone you can get for $399 — View View View View You get a whole lot for not a ton of money. There's no denying that last year's OnePlus 2 was a well-constructed device, but it now looks like the days of sandstone polycarbonate are over.

What to expect from Apple's WWDC keynote next week — Another year, another version of iOS, right? Well, maybe not. Apple Music is widely expected to get an overhaul that trims down the visual clutter. also points to the inclusion of new 3D Touch gestures and a new "Browse" tab that replaces the lackluster New section that's currently there.
