OnePlus 6 Review: The Best Android Phone That Won't Destroy Your Finances OnePlus 6 Review: The Best Android Phone That Won't Destroy Your Finances

The OnePlus 6 might be the most boring phone the company has ever made. Don’t get me wrong, that’s not meant as an insult, but more as a reflection on how far the company has come since the original OnePlus One. Because even though OnePlus’ latest device might not carry with it the same excitement as some of the…

I Love Sharp's New Steam Powered Oven Even If My Steak Was Soggy I Love Sharp's New Steam Powered Oven Even If My Steak Was Soggy

As Moe the Bartender proudly reveals his new restaurant’s Navy surplus deep fryer that can flash fry a buffalo in 40 seconds, Homer laments: “Forty seconds? But I want it now!” He was right. In a time when instant messages and same day shipping are the norm, waiting for food to cook feels like an inconvenience. But a…

The Frighteners, Peter Jackson's Precursor to Lord of the Rings, Still Scares and Surprises The Frighteners, Peter Jackson's Precursor to Lord of the Rings, Still Scares and Surprises

With its bright white spine, The Frighteners called to me from my shelf of old DVDs. “Rewatch me,” it seemed to say. “People forget that I’m the movie that made The Lord of the Rings possible. I’m so much more than a VFX ghost story. Trust me. Bring me back to life.” So I did, and the alluring DVD did not tell a lie.

Oculus Go's VR Is Good and Cheap, So Why Am I Still Disappointed? Oculus Go's VR Is Good and Cheap, So Why Am I Still Disappointed?

I’m standing in the middle of my living room, but my view is of the deck of a ship. I can hear my actual dog as he pants on the sofa I pushed against my wall so I could spin my head to explore my virtual surroundings. He’s obscured by the Oculus Go strapped to my face. I take a step forward in my living room, and sigh…

Batman: White Knight Is a Solid Series With a Few Fatal Flaws Batman: White Knight Is a Solid Series With a Few Fatal Flaws

Sean Murphy’s Batman: White Knight is the kind of Elseworlds-esque story that has the potential to fundamentally change our ideas about the Dark Knight in a way that’s bigger than any one comic book, TV show, or movie. Now that the series has come to a close, we take a look back at what made it great and where it took…

The apocalypse in Netflix’s new eco-disaster series The Rain happens with frightening speed. One minute, high schooler Simone is joshing with her friends and flirting with a boy. The next, her family’s racing down the highway in their car and then leaving it behind to run through the woods on foot. And when the clouds…

Roccat's New 'Membranical' Keyboard Tries to Be Everything to Everyone Roccat's New 'Membranical' Keyboard Tries to Be Everything to Everyone

The humble keyboard has risen in popularity in recent years; the seemingly infinite variety of models has turned the input accessory into something like watches for people with Newegg accounts. With companies trying to cater to every preference and price point, maybe it was inevitable that we’d end up with something…

Lenovo Made a Souped Up Oculus Go That's Missing Just One Key Feature Lenovo Made a Souped Up Oculus Go That's Missing Just One Key Feature

Less than a week has passed since the first standalone VR headset was released, and already we have another. Except this one is made by Lenovo in partnership with Google and uses the Daydream VR platform. Like the Oculus Go, Lenovo’s Mirage Solo don’t need no phone or a wire connected to a nearby PC to transport you…

Nintendo Labo's True Promise Nintendo Labo's True Promise

As far back as the NES, the video game industry has been trying to sell us unnecessary accessories. (Remember R.O.B.?) Companies have occasionally come up with fun alternatives to playing with a controller—think Guitar Hero—but when you eventually finish or get bored of a game, you’re left with a mountain of unwanted…

Huawei's Triple Camera P20 Pro Is Too Cool for America Huawei's Triple Camera P20 Pro Is Too Cool for America

Despite having sold its phones here for years, 2018 was supposed to be Huawei’s big coming out party in the U.S. At CES, I sat through a presentation about how Huawei was expanding into home wifi and had even signed Wonder Woman herself as the company’s new brand ambassador.

This Is the Absurd Japanese Toilet of Cannabis Vaporizers This Is the Absurd Japanese Toilet of Cannabis Vaporizers

I’ve only used a fancy toilet seat once. It was a TOTO-brand washlet, that pampers your derrière with a stream of warm water, a heated seat, and a warm air dryer. I had the good fortune in a Michelin-starred restaurant, where the food you ingested was treated with nearly as much respect as the food you excreted if the…

This Tiny Clone Perfectly Recreates the Commodore 64 Gaming Experience

Before the Super Nintendo, and even before the original NES arrived in North America, I cut my gaming teeth on the Commodore 64. It was sold as one of the first personal computers, but to many kids of the ‘80s, it was instead their first gaming console. I have many fond memories of the C64, but thanks to the C64 Mini,…

Our First Look at AMD's Second-Generation Ryzen CPU Is Proof It's No One Hit Wonder Our First Look at AMD's Second-Generation Ryzen CPU Is Proof It's No One Hit Wonder

Last year AMD finally gave us something we desperately needed with the release of Ryzen: A viable rival to Intel in the CPU space. The rivalry has meant faster CPUs for desktops and laptops as each company races to surpass the other, but there’s a potential problem for AMD. It doesn’t have the same track record for…

HP's Overkill Convertible Makes Your Surface Pro Look Wimpy and Weak HP's Overkill Convertible Makes Your Surface Pro Look Wimpy and Weak

Want a laptop that lets you get in a quick Overwatch match after you’re done editing some video on its 4K display? How about a convertible that lets you crank out screeds even with the keyboard a few feet away? Need a tablet that lets you create and edit images without worrying about your stylus’ battery life? If…

MSI’s GS65 Stealth Is a Gaming Laptop Made for Adults MSI’s GS65 Stealth Is a Gaming Laptop Made for Adults

Shouty RGB lighting and aggressive red and black paints jobs can be a lot of fun, especially when you’re a teenager or someone who thinks putting lots of Xs in their gamertag makes them seem edgy. But at some point, it’s time to grow up. Now that doesn’t mean you need to cut out video games completely, don’t be silly.…

io9 and Kotaku Team Up for a Co-op Breakdown of Ready Player One io9 and Kotaku Team Up for a Co-op Breakdown of Ready Player One

Steven Spielberg has tapped into the geeky Venn diagram with Ready Player One, paying tribute to both wider nerd culture and gaming specifically. Does it do a good job, or come across as pandering? Now that opening weekend has come and gone, io9's Beth Elderkin and Kotaku’s Gita Jackson are diving into the OASIS in…

Prospect Delivers a Space Western That Should Satisfy All Your Dirty Scifi Cravings Prospect Delivers a Space Western That Should Satisfy All Your Dirty Scifi Cravings

Once upon a time, the western parts of the United States seemed as foreboding as other planets do now. Prospect is the latest in a long line of scifi movies and shows to connect the frontiers of Old West to those in deep space, but it does so in a way that feels… unhealthy.

Rivals Intel and AMD Got Together and Made Something Beautiful for Gamers Rivals Intel and AMD Got Together and Made Something Beautiful for Gamers

After Intel’s very bad last few months and AMD’s very good last few months, it seemed awfully confusing that the two rival CPU makers would team up for a new chip. Sure, it was all good for AMD—which is riding high on the success of its new Ryzen CPUs and Vega GPUs—but Intel has spent the last few months in the hot…
