Microsoft said it sold out of Xbox One preorder units last month, leaving potential buyers having to resort to other means to nab a console on its first day out. Several retailers including Best Buy are opening … Read more
It's like HTC is taunting us with the One Max.
The One Max is the company's latest product and a super-sized addition to HTC's aluminum-clad smartphone family.
Beyond the 5.9-inch display and fingerprint sensor, the biggest difference in the One Max is the removable back.

Unfortunately, users still aren't able to swap out the battery, which remains sealed up.
The lack of a removable battery represents one of the biggest blown opportunities for the HTC One Max.… Read more
Easy, useful, and cool, if possible, describes how we like our desktop enhancements, and OneLoupe covers all three bases. Nenad Hrg's free desktop magnifier comes in separate versions for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows; we tried the 64-bit version in Windows 7, but it's ready for Windows 8.1.

Rounding out the set is my personal favorite, a rich, vibrant red One that, stateside, you can pick up with Sprint.
We managed to corner four of … Read more
