What will Apple call the next macOS update: Possible macOS 10.14 names

Versions of Apple’s Mac operating system used to be named after big cats, but that all changed with Mac OS X 10.9, which took its name from a Californian surfing spot (or possibly a dog). Apple said future macOS updates would all be named after places in the company’s home state. Executives jokingly claimed that Apple had simply run out of suitable cats. But the switch to American landmarks is a nice branding manoeuvre for a company often criticised for…

Detroit: Become Human Review: Shiny But Shallow

Detroit: Become Human is the latest game from love-him-or-hate-him auteur David Cage and his studio Quantic Dream, a PS4-exclusive that hopes to build on the potential of his previous games, Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, and apply it to a sweeping sci-fi allegory about artificial intelligence and android rights. Cage’s past games have had faultless ambition, bogged down by clunky controls and clunkier dialogue, and Detroit: Become Human is… well, more of the same, with flaws that frequently threaten to…

Nokia 7 Plus review: Lagging a Touch Behind

Nokia is unquestionably back as a brand, even if it’s Finnish company HMD that’s actually making the phones under license. The Nokia 7 Plus (there is no regular Nokia 7) looks like a copper-flecked Google Pixel 2 XL, but it doesn’t quite perform like one. An Android One device that presents Android as practically stock, it is in many ways the best route to Pixel-like software without splashing out double its price for a Pixel 2. While it performs well…

Best Open World Games of 2018

Gaming has come a long way in the past 10-15 years – look at how much Shadow of the Colossus has improved in its remaster to understand what we mean. Graphics are sharper, gameplay is more fast-paced, and developers can create vast, detailed open worlds that simply couldn’t have run on previous generation consoles or older PCs. There’s so much variety in open-world games too, from survival games that pit you against the environment to RPGs with a never-ending questline.…

Best Travel Adapters 2018: Power Adaptors For Your Next Holiday

Travel adapters are the sort of thing we all tend to leave it until the airport to buy – or, worse, from our hotel once we land on the other side and realise we forgot them. That’s a great way to pay inflated prices for a limited choice though, and you can save a lot of money by planning ahead and buying a couple of power adapters online before your holiday. Adapters have come a long way over the last…

Veho Pebble Verto Review: 3700mAh Power Bank

Veho Pebble Verto Review We could talk all day about the differences between various power banks, but let’s face it: we’re not all geeks. For some of us, a power bank is the same as any other power bank. It fits in your pocket and it charges your phone. Job done. So if we are to ignore the differences in speed, capacity, features and so forth, does it really matter how old it is? Veho’s Pebble Verto is like a…

Acer Predator Helios 500 review: hands-on with the 17in gaming laptop

Acer Predator Helios 500 review: hands-on Acer has launched some mad gaming laptops over the past couple of years, but for 2018 it appears to have kept its head and produced some more sensible machines that gamers can a) afford and b) can actually buy. The new Predator Helios 500 may not fulfil that second criterion, but it definitely will go on sale soon and isn’t a limited run like the insane Predator 21X. The Helios 500 is a beefed-up version…

Bluboo S8 Plus Review: Budget Big-Screen Chinese Phone

The S8 Plus is a name that should sound rather familiar, because it’s also used by Samsung for its 2017 flagship Galaxy S8 Plus. And in many ways you could argue the Bluboo looks a bit like it, with its 18:9 display and glass front and rear. That’s about where the similarities stop, because this S8 Plus is significantly cheaper – but is it still a good deal? Bluboo S8 Plus Price & Availability Bluboo is a Chinese brand, so…
