Fitbit Charge 2 Is the Best Fitness Tracker, Period — Fitbit is quickly becoming the Xerox or Kleenex of fitness trackers, but its popularity hasn't come without a few hurdles. With the Fitbit Charge 2, we finally get a device that's polished enough to justify the hype.

iPhone 7 Review: Ready or Not, This Is the Future — At a glance, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus might be confused for their predecessors, the 6s and 6s Plus. Of course, this is deceptive. The iPhone 7 is perhaps the most drastic revision of the phone since it was first released nearly a decade ago.

Apple's Answer to the Amazon Echo Sounds Creepy — According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple is moving forward with plans for a smart home hub, joining the Amazon Echo and the upcoming Google Home device in the battle to take over your house. Like the Echo, this device would let users control their lights, locks and other smart-homey stuff using voice activation.

You Can Try the iPhone 7 Plus' Coolest Camera Feature Now — Apple has released the first public beta for iOS 10.1. In addition to fixing some niggling bugs, it adds a beta version of the new "Portrait" feature for owners of the iPhone 7 Plus. Portrait mode uses both then normal wide-angle lens from the iPhone 7 Plus and its secondary "telephoto" lens to create a depth-of-field effect.

Verizon Very Publicly Hates Unlimited Data Plans — Refreshingly, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile are all inching back towards "unlimited data plans" (restrictions most certainly apply). But Verizon? Verizon insists that its customers don't need that shit. At the Goldman Sachs Communacopia Conference in New York on Thursday, Verizon CFO Fred Shammo was asked about unlimited plans and according to CNET, nixed the idea, saying "at the end of the day, people don't need unlimited plans."

Why Apple Should Buy McClaren — Earlier today, The Financial Times reported that Apple was interested in buying supercar maker McClaren. Since then, McClaren has denied those rumors-though the Financial Times stands by its reporting-but that doesn't mean the idea is without merit. When I first heard the rumor, I thought "this is insane," but the more I thought about it, the more idea makes sense.

Go Exchange Your Explodey Galaxy Note 7 Right Now — Samsung is rolling out mass quantities of replacement Galaxy Note 7 devices to carrier stores. The company says it has shipped more than 500,000 new Note 7 devices to carrier and retail stores and customers can go in for an exchange starting today. Go do it!

Go Download MacOS Sierra Now For Free — The latest version of OS X, now called macOS, is available to download! MacOS Sierra brings a lot of new features to the Mac, the most notable being Siri integration. The macOS 10.12 beta is now available to developers, and we've just spent a day testing out all the ...

It Feels Like It’s Been 27 Years Since We Got a New MacBook Pro — Twenty-seven years ago today, Apple introduced its first battery-powered Mac, the Macintosh Portable. I could take this time to reflect on 27 years of portable Macs and all they have given to us (the cameos in Sex and the City alone are life changing), but instead I'm just reminded that if feels like it has been 27 goddamn years since we got a new MacBook Pro.

Microsoft Announces Nokia Dumb Phone — Microsoft might be selling off its feature phone division, but that hasn't stopped the company from announcing the Nokia 216 dumb phone. In fact, since Foxconn is expected to buy the Nokia feature phone business from Microsoft by the end of the year, this could be the last Nokia phone Microsoft ever sells.
