Sometimes, a posted video is the only clue to the whereabouts of a missing person, or a terrorist group. Unfortunately, unless that video has already been geo-tagged, it can often be very difficult to tell where it was shot. Now, however, scientists have created algorithms that can determine a video's location by comparing its background imagery and audio to that of thousands of other videos.  Read More

After spending a full morning with the 2015 Zero S and DS on the gorgeous, twisty roads of California, and tucking into a Kawasaki burger for lunch at Alice's, it was time to ride the jewel in Zero's crown: the 2015 Zero SR.

Enough, as it turns out, to catch an experienced motorcycle tester by surprise. Enjoy the last of our 2015 Zero fleet reviews.  Read More

Having become acquainted with the tiny but mighty Zero FX, and struggled through a thorough technology briefing at the Zero factory, it was time to try the "base models" of the 2015 Zero range. The Zero S (streetbike) and Zero DS (dual sport) both share the same platform in terms of frame, motor and the giant monolith battery pack. And despite the fact that they're significantly down on power and torque compared to the high-performance Zero SR, this pair of electrics offer a surprisingly good time.  Read More

Dish announced Sling TV at CES 2015

In the United States, more and more television programming has become available for streaming online thanks to names like Hulu, Amazon and many of the TV networks themselves, but being able to watch live television and events like sports and live news online has remained elusive for cord cutters.

KTM's Adventure 1198 R is probably the most extreme adventure motorcycle you can buy.

Make no mistake though, it's an intimidating ride – particularly when you're a complete numpty on the dirt like our road bike specialist Loz Blain. Things get a bit hairy in our latest video motorcycle review. Enjoy!  Read More
