Audi to completely reinvent the R8

Top Stories - Wed, 09/05/2018 - 09:44

Although it appeared Audi had ditched plans for a new generation of the R8 after sales of the current model proved relatively disappointing, it seems the end isn't nigh for the R8 after all. Instead, the Audi supercar is going to be completely reinvented as an all-electric, all-wheel drive hypercar with stunning performance courtesy of an electric powertrain with somewhere close to 1,000bhp. While V-10's are incredibly potent and much-loved by many, they face what appear to be two unstoppable and consequently inevitable trends: the continuing rise of electric power and the end of the big, brash, high-revving, and undeniably polluting naturally aspirated engines without a contribution from at least some sort of electric motor.

Five awesome Android phone features Apple needs to steal for the iPhone XS Plus

Macworld - Wed, 09/05/2018 - 09:00

If the cat wasn’t already out of the bag, there’s no putting it back in now. Last week, 9to5Mac published a purported official pic of the two new iPhone X models, and if it’s not real, then it’s the best fake I’ve ever seen. Not only does it match up the rumors we’ve been hearing for months, it has Apple’s trademark flair for the dramatic, with eloquent lighting, aggressive shadows, and a sharp, striking lock screen image. Seriously, if it’s fake, Apple needs to hire the person who made it.


This image optained by 9to5Mac purportedly shows the two new iPhones.

What’s the Apple Watch focus?

The unveiling of the Apple Watch four years ago this month painted the device’s possibilities with a pretty broad canvas, and as time has gone on, the conventional wisdom seems to agree that Apple wasn’t quite sure what part of the watch would resonate with customers, so it loaded in lots of features and waited to see the results.

Predicting the MacBook Air replacement

Macworld - Wed, 09/05/2018 - 06:00

Over the last year we’ve seen several rumors from reliable sources stating that Apple plans to introduce a new low-cost MacBook. Basically, it’s aiming to replace the beloved (but aging) MacBook Air, and probably make the MacBook obsolete in the process.

This makes a lot of sense: both the MacBook and MacBook Air are in need of an update. The rumors say the new product will launch this year; we think that’s likely to happen at an as-yet unannounced October event. There are our predictions as to what we can expect from a low-cost (for Apple) MacBook Air replacement.
