I recently began wearing an Apple Watch regularly. Generally I'm not a watch guy — haven't been since I gave up my calculator watch in the late '80s — but in recent years I've learned to appreciate some of the utility features of smartwatches. I especially like the notifications, which necessitate only a glance at the wrist instead of the heavier lift — literally and figuratively — of digging my iPhone out of my pocket. First world problems, sure, but those are really w...
The Essential Phone, coming from the workshop of Android creator Andy Rubin, is finally out after months of teasing. And it's probably the most exciting smartphone launch in years.  The phone is a looker: Titanium on the back, an enormous screen on the front, extending all the way to the top and broken only by the phone's selfie camera. The screen actually wraps around the camera, which could be a horrible idea but for now we can only say that it looks cool.  SEE ALSO: Android O: Eve...

For a football fan, a penalty shootout in the play-off finals — with the chance of your team being promoted to the Premier League, no less — is about as tense as it gets.
