As of its 5 June WWDC announcements, Apple sells four iPads in four different sizes: the iPad mini 4 (with a 7.9-inch screen), the iPad 2017 (with a 9.7-inch screen), and new iPad Pro models in 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch screen sizes.

Belkin Boost Up Dual Wireless Charging Pad hands on review

The Boost Up Dual Wireless Charging Pad is out to make the dream of wirelessly charging multiple devices on the same charging pad a reality in 2018. It’s Belkin’s take on what we saw from the Apple AirPower wireless charging pad, but we’ve personally seen this one in action first at CES 2018. We could dual-charge our iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy Note 8 at the same time. What’s great about this Qi charger is that it’s built for charging…

Brother DCP-J774DW Review – Tech Advisor

Brother is fairly honest about the latest additions to its range of inkjet printers, making it quite clear that the DCP-J774DW is very much aimed at home and smaller office users who only have ‘low volume’ printing needs. On that score, the DCP-J774DW does perform well, providing a high-quality, multi-function printer with respectable speeds and useful features for around £100. Brother also points to the low-cost of its replacement ink cartridges – but here the devil is in the detail,…

The ZeTime is now a fully-fledged device, with a range of features including smartphone notifications, heart rate tracking, fitness tracking and of course the mechanical hands that sit on top of the display. The MyKronoz ZeTime…

HP Spectre x360 13 (2018) Review: 4K Beauty

The HP Spectre x360 13 is a hybrid laptop with no-compromise build and many of the latest components. It looks good, feels great and runs well too. Some alternatives last longer, and HP’s less slim and light Envy laptops give you the option of discrete graphics: much better for gaming. However, if you’re after something a little like a MacBook not made by Apple, this is a great choice. Price and availability We’re using a high-end version of the HP…

macOS 10.12 Sierra review | TechRadar

It’s no longer the newest or prettiest model, but macOS Sierra still holds up, even amid the widespread Spectre vulnerabilities inhibiting all of Apple’s Mac computers.  In fact, Apple has already patched Safari in macOS Sierra, macOS High Sierra and macOS El Capitan as of January 20, 2018. So you can be sure that your Mac is secure simply by updating to version 47 of Safari Technology Preview.  At the time of writing, however, you shouldn’t be using macOS Sierra…

iMac 21.5-inch (2017) Review: Ultimate Refinement

The 21-inch iMac was last updated in October 2015 and, to be frank, that update was a little disappointing because, despite the fact that this was the first generation of 21-inch iMac to offer a 4K Retina display, the processor in that model was a Broadwell CPU, rather than the Skylake CPU offered by the 27-inch iMac of the same generation. The good news is that this time round both the 21-inch iMac and the 27-inch iMac have received a…

14 platforms for developers to build chatbots

Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Google Plus We’ve already seen unprecedented hype about chatbots in 2017 thanks to Microsoft’s bot ‘Tay’ and Facebook’s decision to integrate chatbot capabilities into Messenger. The use of artificial intelligence and ability to converse in natural language can make chatbots seem as if we are experiencing the future right now. However, you don’t have to be a Silicon Valley giant with endless developers to hand to build one. In fact, you could do it from your…

LG WK9 Wireless Speaker with Google Assistant hands on review

Watching Amazon and Google duke it out in the smart home space is a lot like watching the Cold War play out in technology: every time Amazon seems to have the lead, Google races to catch up – sometimes creating something even better than Amazon’s original device.  This happened with the Amazon Echo … which was countered by the Google Home; then the Amazon Echo Dot was met with the Google Home Mini. And now it’s happening to the Amazon…

Sony HT-Z9F soundbar hands on review

It used to be the case that if you wanted Dolby Atmos, the 3D surround sound technology, in your home you had to invest in a seriously beefy home cinema package. Ceiling mounted speakers were the best you could get, but a set of upwards-firing separate speakers were also an option.  Since then, Atmos has found its way into more and more convenient packages, meaning you no longer have to dedicate your whole living room to your setup if you…

Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus hands on review

Samsung Galaxy A8+ is the latest edition to Samsung’s mid-to-high end A-series lineup, which also is the first big launch from the South Korean firm in India. Also, the A8+ is the first phone to sport a dual camera setup on the front, which should ideally improve the selfies on this one.  We must also note that a smaller Galaxy A8 was also launched just before CES 2018, but shown off for the first time at the mega event. There’s…

iPad mini 4 Review – Macworld UK

Back in September 2015, Apple unveiled the iPad mini 4, which went on sale the very same day. Despite being squeezed in between the impressive 12.9in iPad Pro, a new Apple TV and the shiny Rose Gold iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, the iPad mini 4 actually represented a big update for the little tablet. However, it’s now been almost two years and the same iPad mini is available. Apple has chosen to concentrate on its bigger tablets and leave the iPad mini…

Sony WF-SP700N noise-cancelling true wireless headphones hands on review

Sony has never been a company to oversell a product with an eye-catching name, and last year’s WF-1000X were a prime example of this. Those headphones were the first in the world to pack noise-cancellation into a tiny true wireless form-factor to incredibly impressive effect.  The $179.99 (around £130 / AU$230) WF-SP700N continues this trend of pairing exciting products with unexciting names by adding IPX4 splashproofing to the mix to create a pair of true wireless earbuds that Sony claims…

Jabra Elite Sport True Wireless Headphones review

Jabra is known for its hands-free speakers and wireless phone headsets, so last year’s release of the Elite Sport Truly Wireless Headphones ($250 MSRP) wasn’t a surprise. The company’s first stab at truly wireless earbuds is geared entirely for athletes, with features like a built-in heart-rate monitor and sensors for tracking running and other high-impact exercises. Unfortunately, the Elite Sport doesn’t possess the same level of audio quality you’ll find in other Jabra products. It’s all the more frustrating because…
