Today's PC market is one of blurred lines and murky definitions. But, fortunately for us, it's also a world filled with great products. Want a computer that's both portable and powerful?

Emopulse has hit Indiegogo to take pre-orders for its Smile SmartWatch

Many of the communication devices that attempt to make the jump from our hands to our wrists tend to follow the same form factor as mechanical watches (think Pebble or the much-rumored Apple iWatch, for example). The Smile SmartWatch from Emopulse is quite a different proposition. If the company manages to transform its working prototype into an actual commercial product, the Smile will be a smartphone, entertainment and gaming hub, social network and news feed, personal assistant, digital watch, and a stunning piece of wrist bling all rolled into one futuristic device.  Read More

2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante

A year ago, Aston Martin revived the Vanquish nameplate. Now it's sliced the roof off the coupe to bring the "thrill of open top motoring to the super GT class."
