The meat substitute manufacturer Impossible Foods and fast food giant Burger King are launching an Impossible Whopper. According to a report in The New York Times, Burger King is launching the Impossible Whopper in stores in the St. Louis area with plans for a broader rollout later — and not as part of some elaborate April Fools’ day prank. Burger King isn’t the first fast food chain to bring an Impossible burger to market. That’d be White Castle, which is selling Impossible sliders at stores...

Lenovo Yoga C630 Review: Can Windows On ARM Handle A CES Roadtrip?

The Yoga C630 is a portentous little laptop: not because it’s loaded with overpowered technology, but because it isn’t. It’s the new flagship of the WOS platform—full, Windows-powered laptops running on the ARM Snapdragon chips primarily seen in smartphones. This Lenovo ultraportable isn’t the first WOS laptop, but it is the first one with the Snapdragon 850 system-on-a-chip. Qualcomm says it’s designed this chipset specifically for full laptops.

Intel insists leadership team 'united' even as executive departures rack up
