The Apple Watch probably saved my father’s life last night

After Apple's event this past Monday, I wrote up some high-level thoughts on the company's announcements, and I focused on why I have so much faith in the underlying good Apple is doing. → Read More

Apple has shown us the future with yesterday’s industry-changing announcements –

Let's get right to it — I thought yesterday's Apple event was a monumental success. Yes, it was light on some details like pricing and availability, but why would that stop Apple from hosting an event to announce these incredibly important new initiatives? Why let terrible tech reporters continue ... → Read More

Bentley Bentayga Review –

Bentley's Bentayga is a vehicle that certainly evokes a wide range of reactions. Is it a glorified Audi Q7? There's Volkswagen hardware buttons on the hand-stitched leather hide steering wheel, after all. → Read More

Exclusive: Apple to deploy 1Password to all 100,000 employees, acquisition talks underway

Apple acquires an average of 15 to 20 companies a year, according to CEO Tim Cook. Of that number, we only hear about a couple, as most of these acquisitions or aqcui-hires are not consumer-facing, nor disclosed. → Read More

iPhone X Review: One week with the world’s best smartphone –

Apple is a company that usually isn't first. Not with larger-screen smartphones. Not with the switch to OLED panels. Certainly not the first to a 12 megapixel camera. Nope, not edge-to-edge displays. Wireless charging? You're dreaming. Widgets? It barely has them now. → Read More

Google can’t make a good phone and it’s embarrassing –

For those of you that have been following me for the past 10 years or so, you'll know that I'm a huge fan of Android. No, I am not a fan of Android. But I haven't used an Android phone regularly enough to critique it in a long time. → Read More

The world needs a Vertu –

As most of you have probably heard, the high-end watch phone company Vertu recently went out of business. That's actually way too elegant of a statement — after being sold three times since initially being offloaded by Nokia, the brand's original owner, the company couldn't meet obligations. → Read More

Apple Watch Series 3 finally delivers on Apple’s vision –

It might come as no surprise to those of you who follow me and also BGR, but I'm a big believer in Apple's vision for the company's wearable. While the approach has been ever-so-Appley refined over three generations of devices, the product hasn't changed much. Until now. → Read More

Hermes announces Apple Watch Series 2 with exclusive orange Sport band and stainless steel pin –

As most of you know, I’m a pretty big fan of the Apple Watch. Both the current iteration as well as what it means for the future of interaction and integration with technology into our lives. → Read More

The Essential phone essentially doesn’t exist –

So, let's just get this out of the way — I wanted an Essential phone to play around with. The high-end manufacturing and edge-to-edge screen looked like a great combination. But Essential essentially didn't want us to have one. → Read More

Apple to discontinue iPad mini as device gets squeezed from both ends –

First introduced in 2012, Apple's iPad mini was a welcome alternative to the much larger, thicker, and heavier 9.7-inch iPad. There was no 5.5-inch iPhone Plus, so the iPad mini made a great choice for light reading and effortless web browsing, email, and gaming. → Read More

Exclusive: Upcoming Apple Watch to include game-changing health features –

There's no doubt about it — the Apple Watch is a hit. While Apple has not disclosed sales numbers, smart money has the device, now in its second generation, at over 25 million units sold. → Read More

Welcome to the new BGR –

When I started BGR 10 years ago (it's been 10 years!), it was little more than a WordPress template with a custom logo and header, shared hosting, and a dream of revealing all of the mobile and tech industry's secrets. → Read More

No, the hysteria over Tesla’s Autopilot is not blown out of proportion

As someone who has written and negatively spoken at length of Tesla, you might think it's a bit odd that I went out and leased one. Except, even for every weakness I saw in Tesla, there were also undeniable strengths and achievements, and I wanted to experience that. → Read More

WWDC 2016 could be the start of something better

Apple's WWDC 2016 was one of the most exciting in recent memory. Packed full of non-stop updates to all four major platforms, Jonathan and Zach give first thoughts on some of the new software out of Cupertino, what Android does that could be better than Apple's approach to the OS, and of course, som... → Read More

There’s now an Uber for private jet travel and it’s a game-changer

JetSmarter is a brand new private transportation startup that many are calling the Uber of private jets. It is in a sense, but this company's model is even better. → Read More

iOS 10 walkthrough: First impressions and a whole heap of photos

Throughout the years, we have seen iOS transform from iPhone OS 1.0, an operating system that changed the world, with no MMS (people actually complained about this, you remember, right?), no copy and paste, no multitasking, no notification drawer, no background apps, and a list of 100 other feature... → Read More
