Analogue's beautiful, aluminum NES gets a smaller spin-off — The Nt mini will set you back $479, which, yes, isn't much cheaper than the $500 price tag the original Analogue Nt had stuck to it. You'll get a little more bang for your buck, though: it comes with one of 8bitdo's wireless NES30 controllers and can upscale your NES games' video and output it through HDMI or RGB right out of the box.

Robocall 'strike force' sets out to end unwanted calls — "As in any pressing challenge like this," FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said, "perfect is the enemy of the good. The nature of software, as you all know, is to start and continually improve. Let's have that philosophy here." will shut down as part of Univision buyout — At this point, we don't know what Gawker's online legacy will look like. "The near-term plans for's coverage, as well as the site's archives," Trotter mentions, "have not yet been finalized." Speaking of things that haven't been finalized, the fate of Univision's deal hasn't been set in stone yet either.

Hulu cozies up to Marvel, starts working on a 'Runaways' series — In case it's been a while since you wandered into a comic book store, Runaways tells the tale of teenagers who fled home after learning their parents are secretly supervillains. Well, that's how it starts, anyway.

Chrome extension restores the backspace key to its former glory — "Many people lost their progress while working online by accidentally pressing backspace and leaving a page," the extension's description explains. "So we removed the feature from Chrome, and created this extension for those who prefer the old behavior." "Old behavior" is right.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review: Sleeker, simpler, better than ever — Basically, this is the best phone Samsung has ever made. Every year, Samsung tweaks its design language for its new Galaxy S phones and applies it to whatever Note device it releases later that year. It's no surprise, then, that the Note 7 has more in common with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge than last year's Note 5.

BlackBerry DTEK50 review: Cheap, secure and better than expected — That still doesn't mean it's for everyone. If you're reading this, there's a good chance you already know BlackBerry didn't design the DTEK50 by itself. Instead, the company chose a reference design from TCL -- the folks behind the Alcatel brand -- that offered the level of performance it was after.

Everything you need to know about Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 event — Sure, there might not have been many surprises going into Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 launch event, but you can't say the massive conglomerate can't put on a good show. For about an hour, we saw execs take the stage, make lousy dad jokes, throw shade at their competitors, show off a few products and convinced hundreds of people to strap VR headsets to their faces more than once.

Samsung will finally sell its cutesy 360-degree camera in the US — It's been half a year since we first met Samsung's charming 360-degree camera, and they're still a little tough to come by. They've available in Korea and Singa...

Samsung's Gear VR headset gets a more comfortable design — At first glance, it's clear there's something new going on here. The new Gear VR comes decked out in a handsome, bluish-black finish that looks remarkably different from earlier models. As it turns out, the change wasn't just driven by style concerns.
