Microsoft first unveiled its Surface Pro with LTE earlier this year, promising a release before the end of 2017. As the year draws to an end, Microsoft now says it plans to launch the Surface Pro with LTE support on December 1st.

October 28, 2017 7:59 PM Assassin's Creed: Origins Review

Assassin's Creed: Origins is the first game back after a long break for the previously annualized franchise. Did the long rest allow the series to come back refreshed?

I'm still working my way through Assassin's Creed: Origins, and I'll have a full review in a few days (my review in progress can be seen here in the meantime). I estimate I'm about two-thirds through the game, and with much of the world explored and a bloody handful of assassinations under my belt, I've got a few nuggets of wisdom for you in the form of things 173

October 27, 2017 5:17 PM Google Pixel 2 XL Review

This is Google's vision for the perfect smartphone. Google’s Pixel smartphones are designed from the ground up to be the purest expression of what an Android smartphone should be. They are simple, incredibly powerful yet ultimately devoid of all personality, instead opting to give you a blank slate upon which you can build the smartphone of your dreams 152

October 27, 2017 3:50 PM “Stranger Things 2” Review: Biking Toward the Queasy Horror of Adolescence

“Stranger Things 2” is indeed the correct title of the new installment of the series created by Matt and Ross Duffer for the thorough enjoyment of Netflix subscribers who who swoon to pop Americana of a nineteen-eighties vintage. As with last year’s introductory season, a Spielbergian sense of wonder and a John Hughes knack for underage anthropology 140

October 27, 2017 3:00 PM Assassin's Creed Origins PC Performance Review

While our Assassin’s Creed Origins review touched on the PS4 Pro performance of the game, we’ve also spent some quality time with the retail PC release.

October 26, 2017 10:01 PM Porsche Cayenne Turbo (2017) review

Remember when Porsche purists were beside themselves when the maker of the 911 said it would make an SUV? Oh, how they moaned. Before the Macan arrived, it was the Cayenne’s blitzing success that brought Porsche back from the brink and on to become one of the most profitable names in the business. This new one, then, has a lot to live up to. We’ve driven 179
