The First Lego Overwatch Model is a Little Bastion

Lego Overwatch models have been teased for a few months, and aside from a glimpse at a Tracer minifigure, we haven't seen a great deal. But finally, there's an actual model out in the wild: Omnic Bastion (75987). It's a 12cm tall model of the mech in orange (the character's "Omnic Crisis" skin), complete with machine gun arm and "friendly bird companion" Ganymede. Read More >>

Here Are All the Best Deals for Buying the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL in the UK

Yesterday, Google announced the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, which was... disappointing. I think. Mainly because Google didn't actually tell us very much about the phones, likely assuming that everyone had seen all the leaks and decided they knew all about the handsets it was ready to announce. But it's official now, and with the official launch comes the hunt for the best mobile deals. Assuming you want to buy either phone of course. Here are the places selling the phones, and how much you're going to have to part with. Read More >>

Would a BDSM Sex Robot Violate Asimov’s First Law of Robotics?

The sex robot community—the people who make the sex robots, and the people who want to have sex with the sex robots—suffered a blow this past week, when the US city of Houston voted to preemptively ban what would have been the first sex robot “brothel” in the US. But even those council members must know that their gesture was futile. Soon the stigma will fade, and Currys will sell these things in sixty different flavours. Which of course means that, sometime in the future, you’ll almost certainly be able to buy a BDSM robot. Read More >>

Google Confirms the Home Hub Smart Display is Real, as if We Didn’t Know Already

The age of the smart speaker is over. Now we live in the age of the smart display, which is basically a smart speaker with a screen slapped on to show you fancy pictures. We already have the Echo Show, Facebook's portal, and Lenovo's Google Assistant-powered tablet, but now Google has just confirmed that the HomeHub is indeed a thing - and not a bunch of fake leaks used to screw with overzealous journalists and bloggers.

The Walking Dead Gets the Fresh Start We’ve Been Waiting For

Were you sort of dreading the season nine premiere of The Walking Dead? I was. The series has had increasing problems since the beginning of the boring, interminable Savior War, and the show’s declining ratings back that up. But I’m surprised—and happy!—to report that the season nine premiere really feels like a new beginning, and damned if it didn’t make me excited for the show all over again…mostly. Read More >>

The OnePlus 6T is Launching on 30th October

Earlier this morning, we shared the news that OnePlus was teasing something 6T-related. We weren't sure exactly what it was. A launch? A tease of a tease? Neither of those: OnePlus has revealed that its next handset, the 6T, will be launching globally on 30th October. Read More >>
