When KGI Securities' Ming-Chi Kuo pens a research note, it's not just his clients who tear into the results -- the tech community does, too. His latest report has lead to interpretations that the iPhone X could be scrapped or killed or cancelled. Gasp! While we don't know how many iPhone Xs Apple has sold, the general consensus is that X sales may have fallen short of expectations. Let's put these sales forecasts aside -- what's done is done.

Before the sex robots take over, we still have time to get our rocks off with one another (and ourselves). And Pornhub is here to lend a hand, or an interactive sex toy -- or three, to be precise. The largest pornography site on the net has been syncing its interactive adult movies with the Fleshlight Launch and Kiroo's Onyx since June, and now it's adding its own brand-spanking-new haptic toys (the Virtual Rabbit, Virtual Blowbot Turbo Stroker and Virtual Blowbot Stroker) to the list.
This tiny UAV is built to be a remarkable flying camera that's easy to carry around. The Mavic Air can fly for 21 minutes on a charge, has 4K video recording and 8GB of onboard storage.

Pre-orders are open now, with the first units shipping on January 28th.
