Cyber Sport Orbita Mouse review
It may look like Apple’s ill-fated puck mouse, but the Cyber Sport Orbita Mouse is a whole lot cleverer under its silicone skin. Free-rotating for super convenient scrolling, the Orbita can be as simple as a new way to navigate webpages or as complex as a 3D controller. SlashGear strapped on the crash helmets in preparation for some serious spinning.
For full unboxing and packaging details, check out the video unboxing; to summarize, your $98.50 gets you the Orbita mouse itself, the USB wireless receiver and charging dock, a neoprene carry pouch, user manual and software mini-CD. Installation is straightforward, and in fact plug the Orbita in to any XP (or higher) or Mac (OS X 10.3.9 or later) computer and it’ll be recognized as a normal mouse. The software CD has the configuration drivers, though, which let you tweak sensitivity, scroll speed and more; after installing, they require a system reboot.
Unlike a standard wireless mouse, there’s a little preparation required before you first use the Orbita. Obvious it needs charging – approximately 3hrs in total – but the internal compass also needs calibrating. To do so, you press the triangular button on top for 2 seconds, rotate the mouse 720-degrees in ten seconds while it beeps at you, and then press the button briefly again. The Orbita beeps to let you know how you’re doing; frustratingly, the regular beeping as you rotate isn’t on every second, so you’ll have to count along.
After calibration – which only needs to be done once, unless you significantly change your location and confuse the compass – the Orbita needs orienting. To do so, you position the mouse with the triangle button pointing to whatever direction you’d like to have considered “up”, and press it. This can be done as often as you like, so casual web browsing sessions where you’re slumped across the desk can be oriented to a different direction to your upright work mode.
If all that sounds like hard work, don’t worry: it’s not. In general, you grab the Orbita off its charging dock and start working. Cyber Sport is coy about runtime from the battery, but given the mouse automatically goes to sleep after 5 minutes of inactivity I never needed to recharge it during the workday.
Cyber Sport have in effect given you everything from a basic scroll mouse replacement to a full 3D controller, with sensible enough defaults that, if the latter sounds too much like hard work, varying degrees of the former are easily played with out of the box.
I’d thought this review would be pretty quick to churn out; let’s face it, most mouse assessments come down to where you fingers sit – and whether it’s comfortable – and whether the shape makes for accuracy and usability. The Orbita scuppered my plans, simply because it took a while for my hand to adapt. We’re so used to frantically scrolling with our cramping index-fingers, gripping onto the mouse for dear life, that relearning a lighter touch takes time.
The Orbita Mouse probably isn’t for gamers, but anyone who spends their time online, reading long documents or shuttling through multimedia editing should give it a try. It’s not a cheap peripheral, but the capabilities Cyber Sport’s configuration software offer – if you’re willing to explore a little and spend some time setting up custom profiles – mean you’re getting much more than an odd-shaped mouse for your money.
The Cyber Sport Orbita Mouse is available now, from the company’s online store.

2023 Ford Bronco Sport Review – A name to live up to
The new 2023 Ford Bronco Sport is not the new Ford Bronco, a faintly odd sentence you find yourself saying fairly frequently in parking lots and at traffic lights when you’re driving a bright red Badlands trim example. Blame until-now-untapped enthusiasm for the Bronco brand and the high profile resurrection of the nameplate this year – oh, and Ford’s massive “BRONCO” lettering across the grille – for that, and get used to some staring.
The “true” new 2023 Bronco arrives later this year, but to tide us over there’s the 2023 Bronco Sport with some of the styling, some of the cachet, and some of the off-road talent. At least, that’s Ford’s big pitch for what you could, cruelly, describe as an Escape crossover playing dress-up as a Weekend Warrior.
Certainly, the Bronco Sport and its Escape cousin share some guts. Ford’s C2 platform is underneath – meaning the baby-Bronco also has DNA in common with the Lincoln Corsair – and familiar engines are under the hood. You can have the Bronco Sport with the 1.5-liter EcoBoost turbo three-cylinder engine with 181 hp and 190 lb-ft of torque, or step up to the 2.0-liter four-cylinder version with 245 hp and 275 lb-ft. Either way there’s an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The bad news is that, unlike with the Escape, there’s no hybrid engine option. The good news is that 4×4 AWD is standard on the Bronco Sport, rather than optional as on the crossover.
In fact there are two 4×4 systems. Most Bronco Sport models get a version of the Escape’s AWD with programming nudged in an off-road direction. The Badlands trim – that I reviewed – gets a twin-clutch rear differential, with torque vectoring and a differential lock. That can push all of the engine power to one of the rear wheels, should you find yourself in a particularly tricky situation.
My colleague Vincent had already been left impressed by just how capable the Bronco Sport actually is in off-road situations (much to, quite frankly, his surprise). Badlands trim gets a suspension lift – raising ground clearance from 7.9- to 8.8-inches – and boosted dampers, too, and adds Mud/Ruts and Rock Crawl to the five drive modes – Normal, Sand, Slippery, Sport, and Eco – in Ford’s G.O.A.T. (Goes Over Any Type of Terrain) terrain management system.
You access that with an easily-twiddled knob in the center console, surrounded by chunky buttons for the 4WD lock and other features. The whole Bronco Sport cabin keeps to that burly, glove-friendly off-road feel too. Knurled rubber knobs, big HVAC controls, and a generally clean layout add up to a dashboard with some personality. Sure, not all of the plastics are the same soft-touch that Ford has used judiciously, but it works well both aesthetically and practically, with no shortage of cubbies (with grippy rubber linings).
Indeed, the Bronco Sport is full of thoughtful features. The separately hinged rear-glass was useful for dropping in bags of shopping in tight parking lots while the front 180-degree camera, though intended to help you squeeze through perilous mountain passes, proved just as handy at avoiding curbs. Ford Co-Pilot360 is standard across the board, with pre-collision assist with automatic braking, lane-keeping, blind spot warnings, and auto high-beams. Upper trims get Trail Control, which is basically low-speed cruise control for off-roading, and adaptive cruise control with lane centering for the highway.
SYNC 3 supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, with a wireless charging pad as standard, but I do wish Ford had used its newer SYNC 4 on the 8-inch touchscreen as that looks and operates more cleanly. You also get the FordPass Connect smartphone app, which allows for optional remote start, unlock/lock, and other features from your phone. A 10-speaker B&O audio system with subwoofer is optional.
The front seats are comfortable and well-padded, though Badlands trim keeps dual-zone climate control as an option. You do get studier fabrics and materials on it than some of the other, plusher Bronco Sport trims: the Badlands has rubberized flooring, a matching cargo floor, and tough velour seats that feel like they’d be easier to clean.
In the back, the Bronco Sport’s height means headroom isn’t an issue, but legroom feels tight. Rivals offer more space for your knees, and the useful zippered pouches in the seat-backs only eat into what you do get if you stuff them full. The 60/40 split bench lifts to reveal more storage or alternatively folds down, expanding the 32.4 cu-ft trunk to 65 cu-ft. The high roofline makes it big, flexible space, and there are hooks integrated around the edge to lash things down. Ford also offers various lights and outlets, including some built into the tailgate itself for those early morning or late night loading and unloading sessions.
The 2.0-liter EcoBoost may be familiar, but that’s no bad thing generally. Torque arrives rapidly, and leaves the little off-roader feeling perky and urgent around town. Highway cruising isn’t short on grunt either, though you hear more of the drivetrain than in rival crossovers. As for the suspension, that’s dialed in with the wilderness in mind – to avoid shaking your teeth out should you venture off asphalt – and, combined with fairly strong power-assistance on the steering, means that cornering can feel a little more remote than in some sportier alternatives.
Ford’s packaging means you can carry a pair of mountain bikes in the back, which is impressive. The 2,200 pound tow rating is less so, and the 21 mpg city / 26 mpg highway / 23 mpg combined economy ratings aren’t going to win the crossover any awards.
2023 Ford Fusion Sport Review: Blue Oval Q ship cancels mid-size family sedan boredom
The Q-ship is a time-honored tradition in the world of family sedans, and the new Ford Fusion Sport is the latest effort from a mainstream automaker to present buyers with an enormous motor stuffed under the hood of an unassuming commuter. Only this being 2023, that motor isn’t so much ‘big’ in size as it is in output, thanks to the Blue Oval’s overwhelming desire to turbocharge absolutely every single drivetrain its engineers can get their hands on.
The term itself – Q-ship – dates back to World War 2, when convoys crossing the Atlantic would scattered armed escorts disguised as standard freighters amongst their number in a bid to fool the submarine wolf packs that hunted them from the depths. The firepower packed by the Ford Fusion Sport is equally stealthy, with the only overt indications of its 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 being its black mesh grille and quad tailpipes.
This makes it the only car in its class to claim 325 horsepower and a thudding 380 lb-ft of torque while simultaneously going completely unnoticed. That is not to say that the Fusion is an anonymous car – the four-door’s pleasing lines place well alongside efforts like the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord – but they don’t suggest to the casual viewer (read: almost every mid-size sedan shopper) that its all-wheel drive setup can wallop the quarter mile in a mere 13.7 seconds.
That’s muscle car performance in a vehicle that remains fundamentally unchanged from more frugal-minded Fusions in most of the important areas. The vehicle’s cabin, lightly updated, features a roomy rear seat and pleasingly stuffed cloth-wrapped front buckets (although not overly bolstered), while the SYNC3 infotainment interface reigns supreme on the center stack. A six-speed automatic transmission remains standard with the Ford, with its programming updated to offer quicker shifts while in S or Sport mode, and paddle shifters are present should one grow impatient with its algorithms.
The biggest deviation from the standard Ford Fusion playbook outside of the engine compartment is the presence of ‘continuously controlled damping,’ an active suspension technology that has trickled down to Ford by way of Lincoln. The system keeps a dozen watchful electronic eyes on the tarmac and adjusts shock absorber response every two milliseconds in a bid to firm up the ride without sacrificing comfort in the process. It also incorporates something the brand’s engineers have labeled ‘pothole detection’ that attempts to lock a strut in its stiffest setting and allow the wheel to ‘glide’ over a crater in the road with more grace than the expected up-and-down motion.
Montreal’s shattered urban infrastructure contains more potholes per square inch than there are chocolate chips in a tollhouse cookie, and I half expected the Fusion Sport’s trick suspension to throw in the towel and default into safe mode after I had traveled only a half-mile or so. It didn’t – but nor did it seem to provide any real-world improvement over a standard adaptive suspension over chunks of missing asphalt. A more positive result was obtained in the comfort department, where the Ford’s character remained smooth and quiet at a wide range of speeds, even in its most aggressive Sport setting.
Much has been made of the Ford Fusion Sport’s big power numbers as compared to imported four-door fare, and it’s certainly true that at a starting price of just over $34,000, it outguns similarly-priced BMWs – or even much more expensive BMWs – as well as Audis and other Euro cronies. It’s also no exaggeration to say that the Fusion Sport is extremely quick in a straight line, shooting past 60-mph in just a tick over five seconds and offering respectable throttle response and excellent highway passing capabilities thanks to its ample reserves of low-end torque.
In any scenario other than a drag race, however, the analogy begins to stretch thin. The Fusion’s front-wheel drive chassis, while strong in its family car class, makes use of its all-wheel drive system to mitigate the torque steer inherent in its twin-turbo design rather than to significantly boost handling past the limits of its more modest bones. The adaptive shocks help, but don’t fundamentally dial-out the Ford’s understeer at the limit or numb steering, and the fake-sound engine noise that’s piped into the cabin when you hammer the gas is an all-too-common plague on the modern automotive scene that’s almost as egregious as car lashes or fake HID headlights.
The 2023 Ford Fusion Sport is not a sport sedan, in the same way big, unassuming Galaxie 500s outfitted with elephantine 390 and 427 cubic inch V8s weren’t sport sedans back when they hunted state turnpikes back in the 1960s. But they were fast, and so is the Fusion Sport. Ultimately, this is what Ford was aiming to achieve with the car in order to give loyal buyers weary of its four-cylinder-only options list something to get the blood boiling on straight stretches of highway. There’s certainly no arguing with the price, either, which checks in at less than a fully-loaded Fusion Platinum, providing a welcome and affordable niche for undercover drag racers intent on heaping embarrassment on unsuspecting left-lane hogs and kraut-rockets alike.
2023 VW Atlas Cross Sport tailors two-row SUV for American tastes
The two-row midsize SUV space is getting another option, with the 2023 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport making its official debut today. A five-seat version of the full-sized Atlas, it’s shorter and lower than its three-row brethren, but combines that more easily-parked scale with no reduction in wheelbase.
The upshot there is that, despite being almost three inches shorter and 2.3-inches lower, there’s still a healthy amount of cabin space for passengers and cargo. With the second row of seats up, you’ll seat five and have 40.3 cubic feet of trunk space; ditch the rear passengers and fold the seats down, and that expands to 77.8 cubic feet.
Those are the specific demands that North American SUV buyers have, VW says, and indeed the 2023 Atlas Cross Sport was built specifically with them in mind. By dropping the third row, VW’s designers could taper off the roofline more aggressively, for a more striking SUV. That’s not the only aesthetic change, mind.
At the front, there’s a three-bar chrome grille and a new signature light that spans the whole width of the car – including the middle bar across the VW logo. The bumper is new, too, and the hood has become more sculpted than the regular Atlas. At the rear, the back pillar and hatch are more steeply raked, and there are new lights and a redesigned bumper.
VW adds extra chrome accents, while the R-Line trim has even more sculpting to the bumper along with chrome and pain black detailing. R-Line cars can also be had with 21-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
Climb inside, and the dashboard has been tweaked a little. A new steering wheel has been added, which VW says should be more intuitive in its secondary controls, while the door inserts and seats get new accent stitching options. Wireless phone charging, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, and a 12-speaker Fender audio system are available. Atlas Cross Sport SEL trim and above can be had with the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit.
A new version of the Volkswagen Car-Net system has a revamped app and five years’ subscription to the automaker’s remote access system. That includes features like lock/unlock, honk and light flash, parked location sharing, fuel level and door/window status, and remote start/stop. If there’s navigation fitted, the app allows the infotainment system to be remotely programmed with destinations. 4G LTE and WiFi turn the SUV into a mobile hotspot.
Two engines will be available. First there’s a 235 horsepower four-cylinder turbo, with an eight-speed automatic transmission; an option is a 276 horsepower V6 with the same gearbox. 4Motion all-wheel drive is standard, and the V6 – when equipped with the V6 Towing package – is rated to tow up to 5,000 pounds. Pricing will be confirmed closer to the 2023 Atlas Cross Sport going on sale in Spring 2023, but it’s expected to slot in under the Tiguan, which starts at $24,295.
Samsung reportedly plans on countering Apple’s improved camera system on the latest iPhone 11 series with a “giant photographic arsenal” strapped to the back of its 2023 flagship phones.
Concretely, the next Galaxy will come outfitted with a whopping 108-megapixel camera sensor.
Like we saw with other high-resolution Android cameraphones, you won’t be getting true 108-megapixel photos with the next Galaxy but rather their 27-megapixel counterparts created by combining 2×2 squares of pixels into a single, larger unit exhibiting increased sensitivity to light, resulting in improved low-light imaging and better photographs overall.
The upcoming Galaxy S11 series will reportedly also boast a periscope-like zoom lens with 5x optical zoom. Periscope design, based on work by Israel-based Corephotonics which Samsung acquired this year, should help prevent the camera module from sticking out in the back of the phone because the optics are “folded” inside a module that’s only 5mm thick.
Sohee Kim, reporting for Bloomberg:
The Korean company is preparing the biggest overhaul to the cameras on its flagship phones for next year, according to people familiar with the company’s plans. Its upcoming Galaxy S11 will sport a 108-megapixel sensor for the main camera — versus the iPhone 11’s twelve-megapixel sensor — flanked by three more on the back of the device including an ultrawide-angle lens and 5x optical zoom, they said.
According to a recent report by Korea’s The Elec, Samsung’s 108-megapixel sensor was designed in partnership with Xiaomi. It uses a quad-bayer filter, a larger 1/1.33-inch size and Smart-ISO technology that automatically adjusts the sensor’s ISO levels to compensate for brightly or dimly-lit environments. It can also capture video without losses at up to 6K resolutions (6,016-by-3,384 pixels) at 30 frames per second versus 4K video capture at up to sixty frames per second on the latest iPhone.
As noted by Engadget, the new Samsung sensor is around three quarters of the size of the 1-inch sensor found in Sony’s RX100 VII compact camera. Thus far, the Galaxy maker has used the same size 12-megapixel sensors ever since 2023’s Galaxy S7 series.
The sensor is set to appear in Xiaomi’s upcoming Mi Mix Alpha 5G concept phone and it’s already available on the Mi Note 10. Aside from the Galaxy S11, 108-megapixel image capture along with 5x optical zoom cameras should made their way into Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Fold clamshell device, which is said to be set for reveal around February.
The marquee device will also adopt a time-of-flight sensor for depth detection similar to one already in the Note 10+, a feature that can aid portrait photos and augmented-reality applications, the people said, asking not to be identified discussing specifications that haven’t been made public.
MacRumors has more on that:
The new camera is said to be able to scan areas up to 15 feet from the device. The front-facing TrueDepth camera uses similar 3D technology, but because it’s infrared and not laser-powered it only works at distances of 25 to 50 centimeters.
Apple’s upcoming 3D sensor is said to form the basis for all of its future AR/VR plans moving ahead, Bloomberg reported last month. There’s no question that the next Galaxy will generate excitement in terms of smartphone photography, especially given its nearly 6-month lead time over the next iPhone upgrade cycle.
The raft of new features signal Samsung’s renewed commitment to mobile photography after years of minimal innovation and an attempt to catch Apple in the camera stakes.
The deluge on the camera front joins the introduction of foldable devices and fifth-generation wireless connectivity as core pillars of Samsung’s hardware strategy, features Apple won’t be able to match until its next iPhone refresh in September.
As for the Galaxy S11, the current Galaxy S10 smartphones were announced on February 20 so we don’t expect to see the next Galaxy until at least Spring 2023.
Should Apple be worried?
