2 Days Ago   Amazon is considering expanding its cashier-less, checkout-free Amazon Go stores to airports, according to a new report from Reuters this week.

2 Days Ago   We're all happy for the hard-working developers, composers, designers, and content creators who walked away with trophies at The Game Awards tonight, but if we're being totally honest, the reason that many of us tuned in was to see all the world premiere trailer and announcements that Geoff Keighley wrangled for the event.

3 Days Ago   Following what was one of the most drastic (and unsurprising) collapses in recent memory, MoviePass has a plan. In fact, as part of its attempt to return to relevance in 2019, the movie subscription service will debut three new, slightly more expensive plans that it feels are both of interest to consumers and sustainable for business.

4 Days Ago   The anticipation for 5G smartphones has been rising at an exponential rate in recent weeks as providers, including the likes of Verizon and AT&T, have declared that their first 5G offerings will launch next year.

4 Days Ago   One of the more confounding mysteries surrounding the launch of the iPhone XR was the lack of official cases from Apple.
