Our Motorola Razr review is in progress
Chris Velazco has only had the Motorola Razr for about four days, and he'll need some more quality time to give it a thorough review. So in the meantime, let us know what you're interested in finding out about this new phone and its flexible flip screen -- other than the durability of its hinge.
Oscar-winning screenwriter Taika Waititi dunks on Apple's keyboards
Taika Waititi, winning a trophy for best adapted screenplay, started issuing demands of his favorite technology company shortly after leaving the stage. When asked by reporters about the forthcoming Writers Guild of America negotiations, the director focused his ire on Apple. Specifically, its keyboards, which the director says are "impossible to write on."
"They've gotten worse," said Waititi, "it makes me want to go back to PCs."
'Anthem' is about to change completely
Ever since players first dived into Anthem, the game has been a mess. Its troubled development is well documented, but what does the team do now?
According to Bioware boss, Casey Hudson, "Over the coming months, we will be focusing on a longer-term redesign of the experience, specifically working to reinvent the core gameplay loop with clear goals, motivating challenges and progression with meaningful rewards... we'll be doing something we'd like to have done more of the first time around -- giving a focused team the time to test and iterate, focusing on gameplay first."
Review: JLab's $29 Go Air wireless earbuds
If the best true wireless earbuds you can buy are $230, surely an alternative priced for less than $30 isn't worth your time, right? Wrong.

If you mostly use earbuds for podcasts or audiobooks, these will serve you well. Read the full review at Engadget.com.
British Airways breaks the New York to London subsonic flight record
British Airways just set a new record for subsonic flight -- with some help from nature. The airline has confirmed Flightradar24 data showing that one of its Boeing 747s completed a New York to London flight in just 4 hours and 56 minutes, beating the previous best of 5 hours and 13 minutes -- and snipping plenty of time off the typical six hours plus it typically takes.
