  • It's late in the afternoon, it's only Tuesday, and you feel like a goddamn hero for even making it this far into the week. You deserve a prize, a treat, a major award. Oh, we know: Why don't you head on over to Dodge's website and build yourself a tasty Dodge Challenger SRT Demon on its newly-released configurator? Yes, that will do nicely.In this world, where shady dealers don't exist and we all have a spare $90,000 lying around, it's now possible to build the Dodge Demon exactly how you want it. It's honestly pretty amusing to be able to spec out an 840-horsepower rocket ship like it's any other car, but it only takes a glance at the standard features like passenger/rear seat delete and Drag Mode suspension to squash that notion.But yes, for the base price of $84,995 (not including a $1,095 destination charge), you get the world's fastest quarter-mile production car, capable of lifting the front wheels at launch and laying down a 9.65-se..

  • Samsung has kept making phones in the clamshell form factor, though the only market that really sees these is China. Samsung has released the W2017 flip phone late last year and a successor is making its way to China Mobile. This is the new Samsung G-9298, also called the “Leadership 8” (translated from Chinese). The Leadership 8 looks to be an incremental update to aforementioned W2017 flip phone. The most notable updates are a slightly improved Snapdragon 821CPU, and a 12MP camera with a wider f/1.7 aperture to let more light in. The front facing camera is 5MP with an f/1.9 aperture. Additional features include fast-wireless charging, Samsung Pay, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and two 4.2-inch displays: both AMOLED 1080p, one on the outside and one on the inside. There’s a 2,300 mAh battery, a configurable hotkey, and an Always-on display. You’ll only be able to get the Leadership 8 from China Mobile. Currently, there’s no word as to whether we’ll see the new Samsung flip ph..

  • Here's an interesting idea: how about a Microsoft Touch Cover for that iPad? Does that sound far-fetched to you? Well, it definitely doesn't to Microsoft, because through an official document relating to lithium battery transport information it has confirmed that it is working on such an accessory. There's a small catch, however. Said document (a relevant excerpt of which you can see below) dates back to April. So there's a chance that the project has since been scrapped. Let's assume it hasn't, just for argument's sake, and see what a Microsoft-made iPad Touch Cover might entail. Given the name used, we tend to believe the accessory would be very similar in shape and function to the Surface Touch Cover from years past. That was just 3mm thick and used pressure-sensitive technology to deliver a full multi-touch keyboard. The iPad Touch Cover has a battery, the aforementioned document reveals, which means it's probably going to connect to your ..

  • The Samsung Galaxy S8 Active for AT&T still isn't official, despite the pouring rain of leaks we've seen about it over the past few weeks. We got official press renders and full specs already, but the carrier seems intent on postponing the launch as much as possible. Funnily, though, that hasn't prevented AT&T from confirming the fact that the Galaxy S8 Active is a real device indeed, and one that's definitely coming soon. Seen below is an excerpt from the FAQ section for a promotion that's gone live at AT&T. This, by the way, is still available on the company's website, at the Source linked below. It's a list of Samsung smartphones that are eligible to get you a $500 coupon to use toward the purchase of a Samsung TV for use on DIRECTV, the carrier's TV service. The S8 Active should come with a ruggedized MIL-STD-810G compliant body, a 5.8-inch 2,960x1,440 18.5:9 Super AMOLED non-curved touchscreen with Gorilla Glass 5, the Snapdragon 835 chip..
