The 2020 McLaren GT—never mind the looks, love the way it drives

Ars Technica - 34 min 39 sec ago

It has been interesting to watch McLaren Automotive making the most of its platform. The company has been highly resourceful, using the same (or highly similar) basic building blocks—a carbon-fiber monocoque tub and twin-turbo V8 engine—to build a range of supercars and hypercars for most occasions. With the McLaren GT, the carmaker has gotten as far away from laptime-obsessed machines like the hybrid P1 or the wing-covered Senna as it can. GT stands for "grand tourer," and that means this is a car designed for being comfortable over long distances.

That's something I tried to put to the test as best I could, given rather strict instructions not to put more than 250 miles (402km) on the odometer. And it's true—this is the most comfortable, most easy-to-live-with McLaren I've driven. But don't go expecting something soft or podgy—it might say "GT" on the chassis plaque, but it's still a true supercar, through and through.

First, a confession: I'm not a fan of the way it looks, forward of the B pillars. The nose appears borrowed from a goblin shark, and the way some of the GT's lines intersect halfway down the car makes me wonder if members of the design team each contributed elements without anyone talking to each other. Then again, from other angles, particularly the rear, I think bits of it look amazing. But looks are subjective, and plenty of passersby viewed the shape of its (aluminum) body far more favorably than I.

FCC beats cities in court, helping carriers avoid $2 billion in local 5G fees

The Federal Communications Commission has defeated dozens of cities in court, with judges ruling that the FCC can preempt local fees and regulations imposed on wireless carriers deploying 5G networks. The ruling is good news for AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile.

The FCC voted to preempt cities and towns in September 2018, saying the move would prevent local governments from charging wireless carriers about $2 billion worth of fees over five years related to deployment of wireless equipment such as small cells. That's less than 1 percent of the estimated $275 billion that the FCC said carriers would have to spend to deploy 5G small cells throughout the United States.

Cities promptly sued the FCC, but a ruling issued yesterday by the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit went mostly in the FCC's favor. It wasn't a complete victory for the FCC, though, as judges overturned a portion of the FCC ruling that limited the kinds of aesthetic requirements cities and towns can impose on carrier deployments.

Grab our favorite Thunderbolt 3 dock for its lowest Amazon price to date

Today's Dealmaster is headlined by a nice price on CalDigit's TS3 Plus Thunderbolt 3 dock, which is currently down to $210 at Amazon and B&H. While the dock's street price has steadily fallen from its original $310 over the past year, we still typically see it hover in the $240-$250 range online. We saw it briefly drop to $200 at B&H back in March, but this deal brings it to its lowest price since and represents the cheapest it has been on Amazon to date.

The TS3 Plus is the top pick in our guide to the best Thunderbolt 3 docks. It's certainly pricey, even with this deal, but for power users who want to add (or condense) a desktop's worth of accessories through a single port, it's a good buy. It packs 15 ports into its handsome industrial design, including two high-speed Thunderbolt 3 ports, five USB-A 3.1 ports, USB-C 3.1 Gen 1 and Gen 2 ports, a DisplayPort 1.2, an SD card reader, analog audio connectors, a Gigabit Ethernet jack, and an uncommon S/PDIF digital optical audio port. It can drive two 4K displays at a 60Hz refresh rate (albeit with the appropriate adapter) and supply up to 87W of power to charge high-power laptops like the 16-inch MacBook Pro at close to full speed. And though it wasn't always the absolute fastest dock we tested in terms of data transfer or read/write speeds, it was consistently a top performer.

If you don't need that many connections at your desk, though, we also have deals on more casual USB-C hubs, Amazon Fire HD tablets, SSDs, gaming headsets, PS4 games, and much more. Have a look for yourself below.
