Forza Horizon 2 being pulled from Xbox store following Games With Gold deal

Technology
Fans of Microsoft’s Forza racing series, listen up: if you never got around to checking out Forza Horizon 2, your time is running out.

T-Mobile will reportedly sell the OnePlus 6T, marking OnePlus's first major US carrier deal

Technology
We’re still weeks away from the rumored October announcement of the OnePlus 6T, but the Chinese smartphone company’s next flagship might offer a big change from its predecessors: a deal with T-Mobile that would make it the first major US carrier to offer one of OnePlus’ devices, according to a report from CNET.

In the past, OnePlus has sold all of its devices in the US unlocked and directly to customers. The T-Mobile version of the OnePlus 6T is said to be optimized specifically for T-Mobile’s network — including support for the 6
