Deal: Apple Watch Series 3 is $50 off at Best Buy (GPS model)

The Apple Watch Series 3 is on sale once again and even if the discount is not that big compared to the smartwatch’s price, let’s not forget that this is the newest wearable device launched by the Cupertino-based company.

Earlier this month, the same Apple Watch Series 3 was on sale in the US for $50 off. Today, Best Buy offers Apple fans the chance to buy any of the Apple Watch Series 3 models for the same discount. As the title says, all discounted smartwatches come with GPS inside, but depending on the model, you might have to pay more or less.

For example, the Apple Watch Series …

Apple may release a $199 HomePod model with Beats branding

According to an anonymous source from Apple’s Taiwan supply chain, a cheaper version of the HomePod is in the pipeline and it may carry the Beats branding.

Priced at $349 at launch, the HomePod was not exactly a running success for Apple. It sold a respectable 600,000 units during the first quarter of 2018, but this is still not terribly impressive in a market where Alexa and Google Assistant smart speakers are selling by the dozen for as low as $49.
Rumors of a more affordable version of the HomePod have been circulating …

With three Pixel-branded watches rumored to release this year, and many changes coming to Wear OS (formerly Android Wear), 2018 should be an interesting year for smartwatches. Samsung is rumored to be working on two sizes for the Gear S4 — which may actually be called the Galaxy Watch — while Apple is said to be chipping away at some game-changing health tracking features for the Apple Watch Series 4.

But in the meantime, there’s the Huawei Watch 2. Huawei has been rumored to be working on a successor to …

Deal: Apple Watch Series 3 is now $50 off (GPS model only)

If you’re planning to buy an Apple Watch Series 3 and you don’t need the model that features cellular connectivity, we have good news. Best Buy is currently selling the GPS-only Apple Watch Series 3 starting at $279 (instead of $329), thus taking $50 off its regular price.

How Elon Musk is fixing Tesla Model 3 production problems: More humans


After Tesla failed to hit its goal of producing 2,500 Model 3 electric cars a week, CEO Elon Musk says he’s figured out what went wrong: robots.

Yes, robots, which are designed to help build lots and lots of Tesla’s electric vehicle at an insane speed, are to blame for why customers who pre-ordered the Model 3 still haven’t gotten them yet.

In an interview with CBS Good Morning, Musk said the Model 3 is in “production hell” because Tesla used too many robots. 

“It’s worse than I thought,” Musk said. “We have this crazy complex network of conveyor belts and it was not working so we got rid of that whole thing.” Read more…

New Apple Watch Series 4 model to come this fall with new design, 15% bigger screen

Apple is likely to release new Apple Watches – possibly the Series 4 – this fall and they will come with larger displays and a new design, according to well-informed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from research firm KGI Securities.

The new watches will come with a new design, improvements in health monitoring and longer battery life. The analyst also says the watches will have a 15% larger display, but does not clarify whether this means thinner bezels or a bigger body of the watches themselves.
The last vague detail that KGI mentions is that the new timepieces …

Jaguar's electric SUV is actually reasonably priced, cheaper than Tesla Model X


Jaguar is joining the revolution with its first all-electric vehicle coming out later this year.

The Jaguar I-PACE made its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this week, and car lovers everywhere are already freaking out. The vehicle has a 90-kilowatt battery that powers the engine for up to 240 miles (only slightly less than the 295-mile range of the Tesla Model X.) The I-PACE will be shown at the New York International Auto Show later this month and will be available in the U.S. during the second half of this year.

The new vehicle joins the PACE series, a family of SUVs including the smaller E-PACE and SUV sports car F-PACE. Read more…

Samsung Galaxy S9+ teardown reveals similarity to last year's model, with some important changes

The iFixit tear down of the Samsung Galaxy S9+ mostly revealed exactly what you were probably expecting. What you might not have known was that the specs of the battery inside the unit (3.85V, 3,500mAh and 13.48Wh) match up exactly with the battery used on the ill fated Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Now just because the specs are the same doesn’t mean that the battery is the same, because it is not. It’s just an interesting coincidence between Sammy’s new premium handset and the twice recalled Galaxy Note 7. Exploding batteries inside the latter model forced Samsung to get the device out of consumers’ …

HTC Desire 12 Plus rumored to come alongside the regular model

Last month, we reported about one of the smartphones that HTC plans to introduce in the not so distant future – the Desire 12, a mid-range device that might not come alone. New information about HTC’s upcoming lineup suggests a Plus version will be unveiled alongside the Desire 12.

Unlike the regular model that packs a quad-core MediaTek processor, the HTC Desire 12 Plus will be equipped with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 CPU. Also, the slightly beefed up Desire smartphone will boast a larger 5.99-inch display with HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio.
