The iPhone 13 Pro goes to Disneyland

This year’s iPhone review goes back to Disneyland for the first time in a couple of years for, uh, obvious reasons. I’m happy to report that the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 performed extremely well and the limited testing I was able to do on the iPhone mini and iPhone 13 Pro Max showed that for the first time you’re able to make a pretty easy choice based on size once you’ve decided you’re ok without telephoto. One of the major reasons I keep bringing these iPhones back to Disneyland is that ...

Volvo Cars wants to make a concept car using “fossil-free” steel

Volvo Cars wants to be climate-neutral by 2040, and it has set its sights on a major vehicle component that’s notoriously difficult to decarbonize: steel. The automaker has partnered with Swedish company SSAB, which manufactures “fossil-free” steel, for a limited amount of the material to be used in a concept car as early as 2025. A climate-neutral car is considered by many to be a moonshot goal, not least because of the challenge in decarbonizing components like steel. The steel industry, which...

Ducks down the stretch: An updated look at 5 players to watch

The Ducks’ split of four games against the Kings last week did little to alter their fortunes. They’re still destined to finish in last place in the West Division. They’re still destined to finish with the NHL’s least successful power play. They’re still destined to get a high draft pick in July. So, what did we learn? For starters, the Ducks’ play was much improved, especially during the two games at Honda Center, which included a comprehensive 6-2 victory Saturday. They played at much a higher...

Ducks down the stretch: 5 players to watch in the season’s final games

The race to the bottom appears to have been settled, with the Ducks winning out among a pack of challengers that included the Kings and San Jose Sharks. The Ducks have eight games remaining to play in their lost season of 2020-21. Meaningless games? No, they’re not meaningless. At least, they shouldn’t be meaningless for a number of their youngest, least experienced players, who could be given enhanced roles over the final two weeks of the season. Injuries have knocked several veterans out of th...

Ducks’ Trevor Zegras ‘just OK’ in return to minors to focus on center

Trevor Zegras recorded an assist in his return to the Ducks’ AHL team, the San Diego Gulls, during a 4-2 loss Wednesday to the Ontario Reign at Great Park Ice in Irvine.

Startups have about $1 trillion worth of reasons to love the Biden infrastructure plan

Top 64 NHL Draft Prospects At The Midseason Point

from Scott Wheeler of The Athletic, 1. Owen Power — LHD, University of Michigan, 6-foot-5 Power’s merits as the No. 1 pick are real. I understand some of the reservations some have with him in this slot. There are worthwhile questions to be asked of the role his size and age (November 2002 in a mostly 2003 age group) have played in his career, from his minor hockey dominance in the GTHL through his two years in the USHL, and to a lesser extent his strong play as a college freshman.
