Two Weeks with the PS5: How Sony Is Adopting the Best Aspects of PC Gaming

Ever since Sony switched away from the Cell processor architecture it used on the PS3 and adopted x86-based chips and AMD GPUs for current-gen consoles, the PS4 (and the Xbox One for that matter) have been viewed by many as dumbed-down PCs.

The Xbox Series S Is for Gamers Who Hate Upgrades

When my mom moved back in 2007, she decided that living in a new house after 30 years in the old one warranted a new TV. Made sense—ours were all from the ‘80s. She bought a fancy (for the time) Sony with 1080p resolution, and 13 years later, I’m still trying to convince her to upgrade. If my mother were a gamer (I…Read more...

Apple's iPhone 12 Lisa Eadicicco/Business Insider Some of the year's major new tech products, from the 5G iPhone 12 to foldable phones and new consoles from Sony and Microsoft, are based on technologies that aren't quite useful yet — but will be in a few years. Today's widely delayed 5G networks, for example, aren't much faster than 4G LTE networks.  5G was positioned as being the biggest upgrade in Apple's iPhone 12 lineup.
