iTunes problems and fixes – Macworld UK

iTunes has been around since January 2001, before even the iPod launched. The software used to be fundamental when it came to syncing music with that device, and later on, syncing and updating the iPhone, but now-a-days iTunes is of less importance as many iPhone and iPad users choose to sync their music via the cloud. A good thing too, because iTunes isn’t without it’s problems and if you do choose to use the software to update the software on…

Lenovo Miix 630 Review: Hands-on

The Lenovo Miix 630 2-in-1 is one of the first three Windows 10 devices to be released that are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor – rather than an Intel chip. Qualcomm revealed the HP Envy x2 and Asus NovaGo late in 2017, but Lenovo waited until CES 2018 to unveil its Miix 630. The upshot of using the Qualcomm chip is that the Miix 630 enjoys always-on LTE connectivity along with a mammoth battery life of 20 hours – though…

How to protect Windows Server from Meltdown and Spectre

Video: Intel addresses Meltdown and Spectre security flaws at CES 2018 The Meltdown and Spectre processor bugs are worrying for desktop users — and having a computer lock-up because of a badly written Intel or AMD CPU patch is truly annoying. But the bottom line is: PCs, whether they’re running Linux, macOS, or Windows, won’t see much of a performance hit. The real pain from Meltdown and Spectre will be felt on the cloud with the server, not on the…

What lessons has Spectre taught us?

There was a brief period when it seemed that mobile phone users were exempt from the problems that computer users were experiencing. After all, it had been a long time since any phone vendor had used Intel chips in any product, so there was nothing for the Apple fanboys or the Android customers to worry about. That all changed when it was revealed that there were two processor flaws and the second one, Spectre, most decidedly did affect ARM chips…

iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) Review: Expensive Productivity

Apple invented the tablet market with the iPad in 2010. It also reinvigorated the laptop market with the evolution of its MacBook over the last 20 years. So why has it seemingly tried to meld the two with the iPad Pro? Can this new 12.9-inch version replace your laptop? Does Apple even want it to? It largely depends on what you need it for. If you watch TV and surf the web: yes. If you work with desktop operating systems…

Motorola Moto G5s Review – Tech Advisor

When the Moto G5 launched it became our favourite budget phone, but things weren’t perfect. It was no faster than the outgoing G4 and – if anything – battery life was marginally worse. Motorola followed up with the G5s, which in 2018 faces stiff competition from plenty of other inexpensive phones – notably those from China. Motorola Moto G5s: Price The G5s costs £199.99 from Amazon and it’s available in Fine Gold or Lunar Grey. That’s the single-SIM version with 3GB of…

The best Windows tablets: top Windows tablets reviewed

In 2001, when Microsoft unveiled its tablet PC to the world, it was a futuristic, pen-enabled idea contrived to encourage laptop makers to start building touchscreen devices. While the Microsoft Tablet PC wasn’t a remarkable success, it did influence devices down the line, such as the Apple iPad. It took nine years after that for tablets to take off with general consumers, but once they did, there was no going back. Though most of the Windows tablets could be more…

Dolby Vision or HDR10+? Dolby wants you to have both

The term ‘format war’ can be exciting to use – it denotes some sort of competition between some of the leading tech companies in the world. But it can also carry some … expectations with it, too.  When reporters have covered HDR10+ and compared it against the existing dynamic metadata-rich HDR format, Dolby Vision, it’s always been as a competition – that one format will win and one will lose.  And yet, according to Dolby Laboratories’ Senior Vice President of…
