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. Dish took a big move towards changing that here at CES 2015, announcing the launch of Sling TV to deliver live channels to connected devices like Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Xbox and others. Read More
KTM's Adventure 1198 R is probably the most extreme adventure motorcycle you can buy. At 148 horsepower, it's considerably more powerful than anything else in the big enduro market, and at 230 kg (507 lbs) with a tank of fuel, it's actually quite light for a big-bore adventure bike. 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
Proving that not all the space spectaculars are on the big screen at Christmas, NASA has released video taken from inside the Orion spacecraft during its re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere earlier this month. The ten-minute video shows the final minutes before its December 10 splashdown as it made a fiery descent ahead of a parachute landing in the Pacific ocean. Read More

Although they're meant to show what's happening on the road behind you, rear-view mirrors can be obstructed by headrests, passengers and luggage. To counter this, Cadillac is planning to replace the rear-view mirror with a video feed. It estimates a 300 percent increase in field of vision. Read More

For decades, the formula has remained the same for nakedbikes: take a red-hot race bike, soften off the engine, make it more comfortable and price it to sell. And for decades, people have complained about the lost power - so when Erik Buell decided to make a streetfighter out of the 185-horsepower EBR 1190RX, he left its massive 1190cc v-twin engine untouched. In fact, despite its flat handlebar and the lack of fairings, the 1190SX is just about the exact same bike. We spent a week getting to know it in the latest of our video road tests. Read More
Playing back recorded video of energetic string picking or frantic fretboard gymnastics in super slow motion can be of great help when trying to nail minor technique problems, but mounting a weighty camcorder to a guitar is not really very practical. Even a minicam can be a somewhat awkward affair. Happily, advances in smartphone technology have come to the rescue of the study guitarist, but that still leaves the problem of mounting. This is a problem for which the Magnet was developed. Read More
The new Kuga is Ford ’s latest foray into the medium SUV market and despite some stiff competition, it packs enough ammunition to make its presence felt. This is particularly the case in the driver assist technology department, where adaptive cruise control, active city stop, blind spot monitoring, park assist and lane keeping aid headline a suite of features designed to make life easier and safer on the road. We spent two weeks with the Kuga to discover how all this high-tech gadgetry plays out in the real world. Read More
The Sea-Doo Spark is by far the cheapest and least powerful jet ski you can buy. It's also much, much lighter than its competition, giving it a competitive power to weight ratio and some unique handling abilities. And it burns just over a tenth of the fuel the big boys do. Loz Blain and Noel McKeegan take it for a spin. Read More
On Monday, Amazon expanded one of the key fronts in the ongoing war for control of the living room by introducing the Fire TV Stick. It's a follow-up to the company's Amazon Fire TV launched earlier this year, and a direct competitor to Google's Chromecast and the Roku Streaming Stick. Read More
It's taken me about nine years, but I finally understand what Yamaha's going on about with its "torque sports" MT range. After spending a couple of weeks with the MT-09 (or FZ-09 as it's known in America), I'm convinced. Not only is Yamaha on the right track, but the MT-09 is the kind of machine that could cause a mini-revolution in the motorcycle market. Lightweight, super cheap and blessed with one of the best new engines we've seen in years, the MT is barrel-of-monkeys level fun in just about any real-world riding context. And boy did we have fun putting this video together! Read More
