Maximum Review. Today, the other shoe drops. Last week, I flew to Cupertino to witness yet another big Apple iPhone launch. Now you have my full review of the quite excellent 5.8-inch iPhone Xs and 6.5-inch Xs Max. These phones look like the iPhone X of last year but are more powerful and have some impressive photographic chops. Take a break, read it all, and don’t forget to check out my video review, too.

Watch this. The Apple Watch Series 4 will be recognizable to anyone who’s seen or worn the Series 1, 2 or 3, but don’t be fooled. There are some big (get it?) and important differences. I’ve been wearing one for about a week and think it’s an elegant time-keeper, smart notification machine, great workout gadget, and a potentially important healthcare device.

To the moon. SpaceX and Elon Musk announced plans to send private citizen (and Japanese Billionaire) Yusaku Maezawa to the moon on its still-under construction BFR Rocket. On this so-called “dear-moon” project, Maezawa will bring along a bunch of artists, people who will not have to pay for their rides around the moon. Very few humans have flow to or close to the moon, so this is a very big deal.

Old is New Again. While gamers can’t wait for whatever next-gen gaming console is coming around the bend, they also have great affection for classic console systems. Nintendo’s made quite a business out of selling retro consoles, like the Nintendo NES Classic Edition. Not to be outdone, Sony is now selling a PlayStation Classic. Like other classic gaming systems, you won’t need cartridges. When it goes on sale in December, PlayStation Classic will come pre-loaded with games.
