Porsche has revealed the name of the production Mission E all-electric sedan, which will launch as the 2020 Porsche Taycan.The name was confirmed today, at the official opening of the “70 Years Porsche Sportscar” special exhibition at the Porsche Museum in the Zuffenhausen district of Stuttgart, Germany.The name “Taycan” means, roughly, the equivalent of “spirited young horse,” Porsche says, a nod to the animal on the company’s crest.“The name has its linguistic roots in the East,” according to the firm.Though the Mission E name was always said to be simply what the all-electric sedan concept was called, and not what the automaker had intended for the production car to necessarily bear, it had been generally well received.As we’ve seen in the past, something that resonates positively with potential buyers can be enough to persuade a car company not to go ahead with a rebranding at all.

While the iPhone maker focused on sensible-but-not-sexy updates to its iOS software, Asus played its wildest cards.Chalk the excitement up to three new announcements: the VivoWatch BP, the ZenBook Pro and — oh, that's right — a freaking two-screen AI laptop from the future.It'll be available in 2019, said Marcel Campos, global PC and phone marketing senior director at Asus, who proclaimed "a PC with AI capabilities have a dual screen."There's AI compatibility with Microsoft Office programs.These are existing laptop features, but promise to be more useful with a dual-screen, AI setup.Typing on the screen of an iPad or a Yoga Book, while serviceable, has never been as tenable for long-term use as a good old-fashioned keyboard.

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference kicks off next week, one of two major events the company hosts every year.WWDC, like other developer events, is largely focused on the platforms that app makers build stuff for; in this case, iOS and MacOS, along with tvOS and watchOS.But this year's changes–on iOS especially–are expected to be less dramatic than last year's update, which included a redesigned control center, more photo effects, enhanced discovery in the App Store, driving safety features, and of course, ARKit.This would allow developers to build apps for one platform that would run on another, i.e., someone could build an iOS app that could also run on a Mac without having to rewrite the code for macOS.The wearable market isn’t nearly as huge as the smartphone or PC market, but it’s a platform that Apple is still devoted to.And there is some validation for Apple Watch: Earlier this year Apple became the global leader in smart wearables, while CEO Tim Cook has said that the Watch business is the size of a "Fortune 300 company."
