The Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10 is a comical cash grab

The appearance of any limited edition version of a smartphone usually implies one of three things; it's geared towards those with more taste— and money— than the mainstream consumer; there's more to the company's creative …

Smartphone notifications can be an annoying interruption when you’re at your desk, or something far worse if you’re driving. The Google Pixel 2 has a (kind of) solution to this thanks to an automatically enabled Do Not Disturb mode for driving.

The functionality, which is listed on the Google Pixel 2’s support page, is activated once you connect to in-car Bluetooth or when the phone detects that it is in a moving vehicle (it should take no more than one minute).

The HTC U11 has been one of the best received HTC phones in recent years, and a more powerful successor is expected to be launched soon. We learned earlier this week that the device, what is expected to be called the HTC U11 Plus, may be unveiled in just a couple of weeks on November 2. Now, we might have a better idea of what it’s going to look like.

A 3D render of the device has appeared in a CAD video from leaker @OnLeaks, this time in partnership with Indian website couponraja.in. The video depicts a metallic, ice blue handset that shares much in common...

Worried that the dress you just bought online might be a size too small? Wondering if the size 10 shoes you just ordered are the same size 10 as all your other shoes? Are you one of those seasoned shoppers who have learned the hard way – through trial, error, and spending significant postage on returns – that one manufacturer’s “medium” is another’s “extra large”?

Singaporean startup Pixibo wants to change all that with its size recommendation engine Pi, which can be built into online stores. The fact that several high-profile angel investors from the...
