Two years ago, a struggling HTC rebranded itself with an outstanding (not to mention gorgeous) flagship smartphone, the HTC One (M7).

Ah, Morgan. A company so steeped in anachronisms it makes a Lotus 7 look like the space shuttle.

Sony announced that the Project Morpheus VR headset will reach consumers in the first half...

Virtual reality is a strange type of consumer product. On one hand, it has as much buzz as any tech product category out there, with nearly every company imaginable scrambling to line something up.
