Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

This morning, we're stepping back to the '80s with some special-edition Pumas, while Tesla's Navigate on Autopilot shows off the future of commuting. LG is kicking off the CES flood with a brewing machine and pair of new laptops, and it's time to crown 2018's best smartphone camera.


The title kinda gives it away.The Pixel 3 has 2018's best smartphone camera

We put four of this year's biggest (literally and figuratively) devices -- the Pixel 3 XL, the iPhone XS Max, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the Galaxy Note 9 -- through a battery of camera tests to find out which is the champ.

The latest update to Tesla's driver assistance takes your destination and, just like Google Maps, figures out the quickest way to get there. Tesla then combines that data with GPS information, the vehicle's onboard sensors and what it's learned about the roads from its fleet data to optimize your route. Then while you're driving, it figures out and shares the best lane position and helps you navigate interchanges and freeway off ramps.

The most obvious upgrade is the McLaren 6T's 10GB of RAM, compared to the 6GB or 8GB on the regular model. This should provide plenty of power for multitasking, on top of the beefy Snapdragon 845 processor that also sits in the original flagship. By our count, there are only three other phones with this much RAM on the market, but those are pretty niche devices that are mostly only available in China right now.

Although Fortnite season seven is less than a week old, it's already shaping up to be the best one yet. With a new winter biome, Stormwing planes, ziplines and now a mythical sword, players have tons of new content to experience.


We're going to review this one thoroughly.LG's automated craft-beer system could make homebrewing much easier

The HomeBrew system is a capsule-based beer-making machine that relies on automation and fermentation algorithms. It's also completely self-cleaning to make for a seriously fuss-free way of brewing your own beer.
