Tesla Cuts Prices; Model S and X Long Range

Tesla is dropping the base models (again), except this time, the prices aren't increasing as they did in January. Consistent with Tesla's frequently adjusted pricing and product availability, the latest changes that quietly appeared on the Tesla website this week dropped two cheaper models of the Model S and Model X. The Standard Range cars are gone, and the Long Range cars—now the base trim—are each down $8010. That means that, for just a couple grand more than the base models that were still being made last week, the Model S is finally at eye level with gasoline-powered luxury cars, at least in estimated EPA range. The 370-mile Model S (up from the Standard Range's 285) costs $81,190. The 325-mile Model X (up from...

Audi R8 V10 Decennium Honors 10th Anniversary

  Audi‘s futuristic technology to help drivers avoid red lights has been one of the brand’s latest developments, but the German manufacturer took a page from its history book to craft its new R8 V10 Decennium. Named after the Latin word for decade, the Decennium pays homage to the V10 engine and celebrates its 10th anniversary through a highly-limited design.   The sports car coupe is defined by an exclusive “Daytona Gray” colorway on the exterior, while milled 20-inch wheels and an intake manifold coated in matte bronze help deliver a striking aesthetic. Gloss black is painted on the front spoiler, side sills and diffuser, coordinating with the Audi logo rings branded along the outside. Black remains the key color for the interior, including on the quilted rhombus-patterned seats,...

Gucci Beefs Up Tech With Augmented Reality App

Gucci is ramping up its efforts in the technology world, having announced today the launch of an in-app augmented reality feature that it describes as the “first” for any fashion brand.

Additionally, the tool is also meant to encourage social engagement as fans can save their photos “wearing” the shoes and share them as they see fit. The function is currently only compatible with iOS platforms, however. This initiative isn’t the first...

Sony WH-1000XM3 vs Bose QC35 II

Active noise cancellation headphones are a handy companion for tiresome plane journeys, monotonous daily commutes, and when you want to isolate yourself from the clamour around you.   Bose's Quiet Comfort range has long been considered the gold standard for noise cancelling headphones, and the QC35 II, which was launched late last year, added Google Assistant support and the ability to switch between three noise cancellation modes to the mix.
