  • IRL: FIFA 14 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4
    Welcome to IRL, an ongoing feature where we talk about the gadgets, apps and toys we’re using in real life and take a second look at products that already got the formal review treatment.

    IRL: FIFA 14 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4

    What? You thought we were done covering the next-gen consoles? Just because we’ve written full reviews of the Xbox One and PS4 (along with a comparison guide), doesn’t mean we’ve said everything there is to say. Now that more games are starting to roll out post-launch, you might see us get hands-on with some of them, especially if that game is FIFA 14, and especially if the reviewer is Engadget’s resident football fan Edgar Alvarez. Read on for a double-dose of impressions, with feedback from both consoles.

  • ASUS Transformer Book T100 review: a Windows tablet with netbook roots

    ASUS Transformer Book T100 review: a Windows tablet with netbook roots

    We generally don’t have time to review low-end products, but sometimes we see something at such an aggressive price we just have to take it for a spin. That pretty much describes our feelings about the ASUS Transformer Book T100, a 10-inch Windows tablet that comes with a keyboard dock in the box — all for just $349. Incidentally, too, this is the first product we’re testing with Intel’s new quad-core Bay Trail-series Atom processor, which can run full Windows while at the same time keep pace with low-power chips like the ones in the Surface 2 and Nokia Lumia 2520. So, is all of that enough to make it a good deal? And can you forgive ASUS for all the ways it cut corners? We think you might.%Gallery-slideshow123355%

  • A guide to street photography: Gavin Harrison's smartphone art

    An app like Big Lens can provide impact by throwing things out of focus

    Street photography is the purest, most spontaneous way to create art with a camera. No studios, no props, no poses; all you need is the right equipment and a street with people on it. In this original series for Engadget, we’ll follow three seasoned street fighters and try to glean some practical wisdom about what engages their eyes, brains and fingers in the moments before they shoot.

    The third and final street photographer in this trilogy represents a very different (and non-deferential) way of doing things. As you’re about to see, Gavin Harrison doesn’t stick to traditional ideas of what a street shot should look like, or to what sort of camera should be used to capture it. In fact, he spends more time thinking about smartphone apps than about lenses or exposure settings, and there’s a lot he can teach us.

  • Time Machines: Dial-a-tune

    Welcome to Time Machines, where we offer up a selection of mechanical oddities, milestone gadgets and unique inventions to test out your tech-history skills.

    This invention brought streaming music to New York City’s early adopters around the turn of the 20th century. Mark Twain, who was among the first to have a personal telephone line installed, was an avid supporter of the service, which provided the crystalline clarity of electrically generated music delivered into his own home on the telephone wire. Head on past the break to find out the full story.
