Huawei’s new Mate 20 Pro has a massive screen, three cameras on the back and a fingerprint scanner embedded in the display.

The new top-end phone from the Chinese firm aims to secure its place at the top of the market alongside Samsung, having recently beaten Apple to become the second-largest smartphone manufacturer in August.

Posted on Tuesday October 16, 2018

Update of popular e-reader introduces thinner and lighter design, Bluetooth compatibility and audiobook support

Amazon has launched a new version of its popular Kindle Paperwhite e-reader, which is thinner, lighter and now finally water resistant.

The new 2018 Kindle Paperwhite is the second Amazon e-ink device to be given the water resistance treatment following the launch of the Rolls Royce of e-readers, the £230 Oasis, in 2017.

Facebook Portal smart screen to launch amid concerns over privacy
Posted on Monday October 08, 2018

Company reveals details about voice-controlled device, which was delayed after data breach

Facebook wants to be invited into your living room. The company has revealed details about its Amazon Echo competitor, a voice-controlled, webcam-equipped smart screen named Portal.

Arriving in the US in November, Facebook Portal is a $199 (£152) 10-inch screen, with two speakers and a high-quality webcam attached, which the company hopes users will put in their living rooms and kitchens and use to launch video chats with friends and loved ones.

Google launches DIY smart Nest Thermostat E
Posted on Monday October 01, 2018

Heating controller cheaper than previous model and consumers will not require a boiler engineer to install it

Google’s latest smart-home product is a cheaper smart thermostat that anyone can install themselves without the need for a boiler engineer.

The new £199 Nest Thermostat E is a two-part system consisting of a battery-powered heating controller called the Heat Link E, which replaces an existing wired thermostat or heating controller, and a smart thermostat that can be placed somewhere else in your home.

The modern kitchen: with the help of electricity – archive, 26 September 1922
Posted on Wednesday September 26, 2018

26 September 1922 Kitchens revolutionised by electrical appliances and labour-saving devices

The modern kitchen differs in almost every respect from the average kitchen of thirty years ago. Conditions of work have necessitated radical changes to equipment. In a present-day kitchen there is no room for anything that is not of practical everyday use. Elaborate copper moulds and fancy dishes and crocks have given place to the plainest designs in earthenware and fireproof china. White wood furniture is no longer regarded as a necessary evil and a sign of respectability. The kitchen table is covered with linoleum or oil-baize; cupboards and dressers are stained and wax-polished to render them dustproof, and open shelves and spaces are discouraged since they make unnecessary work. In every point modern devices must require only a reasonable amount of time and attention to keep them in good condition. The cooking stoves in use to-day are a tremendous advance on the old-fashioned coal-eating ranges. Modern ranges are planned and equipped so that the fuel is used with the utmost efficiency and the heat can be perfectly controlled. Gas and electric stoves are universally popular both for the ease with which they can be used and for the efficiency with which they perform their work.

Nest Hello review: Google's smart facial-recognition video doorbell
Posted on Thursday September 20, 2018

Excellent smart device comes with optional 24/7 video recording with facial recognition – and works as a doorbell too

Google’s new Nest Hello is a video doorbell that aims to be smarter than the rest with constant recording, face and object recognition.

The Hello is a direct replacement for a wired doorbell, working with an existing chime and requiring constant power, making it one of the high-end options for smart doorbells.

The Nest app runs you through full installation instructions that you can’t skip, even if you’ve had an electrician install the doorbell for you. Tedious.

The hyperlapse effect of scrolling through a full day’s video is really beautiful, watching the sun streak across the sky

I received far too many notifications for people passing by without a Nest Aware subscription, meaning I had to turn them off

Shadows of people walking are identified as people, setting off the alert even if the person isn’t actually in your motion zone

The Hello is weather-proof, but the backplate doesn’t fit all that tightly to the wall, so water can get in behind it if it’s exposed to torrential rain or similar

You’ll need a strong wifi signal for the doorbell and an uncapped broadband connection for the Nest Aware video recording

You can silence the chime for 30 minutes to three hours, but can’t schedule it to be quiet overnight or similar – you can toggle it on or off in the app manually though

Pros: HDR video, good night vision, good and fast app, great as basic doorbell, attractive, smart add-on features, with Nest Aware it is excellent as home-security camera, recognises guests via facial recognition

Cons: stringent wiring/power requirements, additional subscription almost a necessity, mount sits proud of the wall, privacy concerns of having a camera on your door particularly with facial recognition

Yuval Noah Harari: the myth of freedom
Posted on Friday September 14, 2018

Governments and corporations will soon know you better than you know yourself. Belief in the idea of ‘free will’ has become dangerous

Should scholars serve the truth, even at the cost of social harmony? Should you expose a fiction even if that fiction sustains the social order? In writing my latest book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century, I had to struggle with this dilemma with regard to liberalism.

On the one hand, I believe that the liberal story is flawed, that it does not tell the truth about humanity, and that in order to survive and flourish in the 21st century we need to go beyond it. On the other hand, at present the liberal story is still fundamental to the functioning of the global order. What’s more, liberalism is now attacked by religious and nationalist fanatics who believe in nostalgic fantasies that are far more dangerous and harmful.

The main challenge liberalism faces today comes not from fascism or communism but from the laboratories

If governments succeed in hacking the human animal, the easiest people to manipulate will be those who believe in free will

Why you should read this article slowly
Posted on Friday September 14, 2018

Amid fears of shrinking attention spans, it’s time to stop skimming our screens and try slow reading – it is rich in rewards

Are we doomed to read distractedly in the digital age? Technology seems to deter slow, immersive reading. Scrolling down a web page with your thumb feels innately less attentive than turning over the pages of a book. Reading on a screen, particularly a phone screen, tires your eyes and makes it harder for you to keep your place. So online writing tends to be more skimmable and list-like than print. At the top of a web article, we are now often told how long it will detain us, forewarned that the words below are a “15-minute read”. The online reader’s put-down is TL;DR. Too long; didn’t read.

The cognitive neuroscientist Maryanne Wolf argued recently that this “new norm” of skim reading is producing “an invisible, game-changing transformation” in how readers process words. The neuronal circuit that underpins the brain’s capacity to read now favours the rapid ingestion of information, rather than skills fostered by deeper reading, like critical analysis and empathy.

The Kindle has not killed off the printed book any more than the car killed off the bicycle

The slow reader is like a swimmer who stops counting laps and just enjoys how their body feels and moves in water

Amazon launches Fire HD 8 tablet with new Echo-like dock
Posted on Thursday September 06, 2018

Company updates popular £80 tablet, improving camera and giving it new Alexa smart assistant capabilities

Amazon is updating its popular £80 media tablet with an improved camera and new Alexa capabilities that turn it into an Echo device with a screen.

The new Fire HD 8 looks almost identical on the outside to the previous version, with a robust plastic body available in a collection of colours. Inside is a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, a choice of 16 or 32GB of storage, an 8in 720p screen and stereo speakers, an improved front-facing camera, and 10 hours of battery life.

Google Home Max review: bigger and smarter sound
Posted on Thursday August 30, 2018

Big new Google Assistant smart speaker finally launches in the UK with best-in-class voice control aiming to be the life and soul of the party

Google’s big, premium Apple HomePod rival the Home Max is finally being released in the UK today, bringing Google Assistant to the high-end smart speaker market.

Announced in October 2017 and on sale in the US since November, the Home Max joins Google’s smaller Home and smallest Home Mini smart speakers as the big one. Google Assistant sorts voice commands, controls and questions exactly the same as Google’s smaller smart speaker offerings, but the way it sounds couldn’t be more different.

The dots in the middle switch orientation when you turn the speaker between vertical or horizontal

You can charge your phone from the USB-C port (but not quickly)

Volume controlled via the buttons on your phone in the Google Home app adjust the volume by between 4 and 6%, which is strange

Assistant will tell you if you’ve placed the Home Max upside down – it will still work though

There’s a good level of granularity in the volume control, meaning you can easily get the volume just right

Pros: Google Assistant is great, multi orientation, loud and punchy, can always hear you, Bluetooth and analogue in, native Spotify and multiple other music services, adaptive sound, granular volume control via percentage, good touch controls

Cons: variable volume in playlists, not much good for a non-Google user, smart speaker privacy concerns, better for some music genres than others, expensive

Google Home review: the smart speaker that answers almost any question

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 review: the do-everything phone
Posted on Wednesday August 22, 2018

The phablet’s massive, beautiful screen, excellent performance and new Bluetooth stylus will have Note fans salivating

The king of the big, powerful phones is back for another generation, but is the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 still the phablet to beat?

The Note series pioneered the big-screen smartphone in 2011 and over the last seven years it has been made larger and more feature-packed with each new version. Where the Galaxy S9 series is Samsung’s top-end phone for normal people, the Note 9 is the powerhouse for those that need the answer to the question “can I do that on my phone” always to be yes.

Screen: 6.4in quad HD+ AMOLED (516ppi)

Processor: octa-core Samsung Exynos 9810 or octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845

RAM: 6 or 8GB of RAM

Storage: 128 or 512GB + microSD card

Operating system: Samsung Experience 9 (Android 8.1)

Camera: dual 12MP rear cameras with OIS and dual aperture, 8MP front-facing camera

Connectivity: LTE, Wi-Fi, NFC, wireless charging, Bluetooth 5, GPS and Iris sensor

Dimensions: 162 x 76.4 x 9 mm

Weight: 205g

The Bixby button is still there and Bixby still isn’t great – it technically hasn’t even launched in the UK yet so we just get the US version

Both the phone and S Pen are water resistant to IP68 standards

To register a fingerprint you swipe down on the sensor once, but you must do so in the orientation you hold the device normally otherwise the results aren’t good

Intelligent scan, which combines face and iris recognition, works very well, but you still have to use your fingerprint for most apps

The screen is just about big enough to be a viable replacement for a 7in tablet, but you had better have big pockets

The stereo speakers are surprisingly loud and good

Wireless charging remains great

Pros: good battery, impressive screen, water resistant, brilliant camera, Bluetooth S Pen, microSD card slot, wireless charging, lasting performance, DeX without the dock, headphone jack

Cons: only Android 8.1, expensive, very big for hands and pockets, fingerprint scanner should be lower down the back, Bixby still not good enough

Nokia 8110 4G review: a nostalgia trip too far
Posted on Thursday August 16, 2018

The original was made famous by The Matrix, and some might want to drop this reboot out of the nearest window too

The new Nokia 8110 4G is the latest nostalgia trip from HMD Global, but is it more than just a remake of that “banana phone” from the Matrix?

HMD had a hit on its hands with the new Nokia 3310 from last year, which was a surprisingly charming dumbphone that cost slightly more than other basic Nokias because of the name.

Pros: 5-day+ battery life, headphone jack, dual-sim support, 4G, 4GB storage, microSD card slot, removable battery

Cons: expensive, tedious T9, not many apps, no WhatsApp, Spotify or Instagram

Cracking news: improved smartphone glass twice as likely to survive drops
Posted on Thursday July 19, 2018

New version of Gorilla Glass used in iPhone and Samsung devices could help make smashed screens a thing of the past

Glass-maker Corning has unveiled a new version of its Gorilla Glass used in the majority of smartphone displays, which it says is twice as likely to survive being dropped.

As phones get bigger, and come with glass on the back as well as the front, the potential for smashed devices has increased. While cases have helped, even heavily protected phone screens still end up shattered from impact and then stress from being bent, squeezed or bumped in a pocket or bag.

As I go through a series of drop tests at the @corninggorilla even I do wonder if higher performance from the glass drives bad behavior. In other words I drop it and it does not break so I am not as careful as I used to be.

Hoverboards: why they haven't got off to a McFlying start
Posted on Tuesday July 03, 2018

The gadgets inspired by Back to the Future Part II’s floating skateboards have failed to deliver

We could start by saying “they” didn’t promise us hoverboards. People want hoverboards because they saw one in the disappointing sequel Back to the Future Part II . But that doesn’t mean people haven’t tried to make them. Like other colourful retrofuturist fantasies, hoverboards were a lustmotif that spoke to a whole generation in the way that flying cars and jetpacks did to baby boomers.

Problem No 1: how would this thing hover? We have four choices: some type of thrust, a cushion of air, maglev or magic.

Sonos Beam review: a great, compact, jack-of-all-trades upgrade for your TV
Posted on Wednesday June 27, 2018

The new, cheaper, more compact Sonos soundbar has full-range, room-filling sound, wifi and smart speaker functionality with built-in Alexa

The Beam is the new, more compact and cheaper soundbar from multi-room audio specialists Sonos, which promises to be a great one-box upgrade for your TV sound, with Alexa and smart speaker functionality built in.

On the surface the Beam appears to be a relatively simple product. It’s an all-in-one soundbar that connects to your TV via HDMI or optical cable and is controlled by the volume buttons on your TV’s remote.

Pros: compact and attractive, great, room-filling sound whether TV or music, easy set up, Alexa, easy to add to with more speakers

Cons: relatively expensive, no room-shaking bass, takes up a port on your TV, no HDMI pass-through, no support for Dolby Atmos

Seven cooling gadgets to beat the heat
Posted on Tuesday June 26, 2018

Fans are great, but when it gets really hot all they do is push warm air around. These seven gadgets aim to cool you down without air conditioning

The British summer is a cruel mistress. It’s either dank, grey and raining, or so hot you practically melt on the way to work. An umbrella takes care of the former, but it’s difficult to stay cool in the heat.

When a fan just doesn’t cut it, or simply isn’t practical, here are some of the best gadgets to keep the sweat at bay during work, rest and play.

Ray guns: will they ever be more than cool toys?
Posted on Tuesday June 26, 2018

Humans have dreamed of weaponised lasers since HG Wells first mooted them. Should we be careful what we wish for?

You can thank HG Wells for the idea of a ray gun. Weaponised lasers, microwave beams, particle beams and so on ... Wells’s Martian death rays in 1897’s War of the Worlds sparked the concept.

Twenty years later one Albert Einstein offered a proof of concept in 1917, and then Charles Townes finally made one (OK, a laser) in 1951. Star Trek injected further vim to the fantasy of handheld zappers with its phasers, followed by the blasters of Star Wars – enough appetite to stimulate real military research – remember Ronald “Ray gun” and his Star Wars programme?

Teleportation: will it ever be a possibility?
Posted on Tuesday June 12, 2018

Instant travel seems further away than when Captain Kirk first reanimated, but scientists are fighting to make it happen

Star Trek has a lot to answer for. Not content to tease us with unreasonable expectations of phasers and warp drive, it also thrust into the popular imagination the idea of teleportation, in which we step into a giant scanner of some sort and instantaneously find ourselves somewhere else, mind, body and soul intact (and hopefully, unlike Jeff Goldblum, untainted).

Theoretically, there are really only two ways this can(’t) be done – physical deconstruction at x and reconstitution at y, or the translation of one’s person into data to be transmitted, then reconverted into matter, like some organic fax machine.

Marshall Major III Bluetooth review: rocking wireless headphones
Posted on Thursday June 07, 2018

The much-loved British brand has improved its wireless on-ear range, perfect for metal and hip-hop heads alike

The Marshall Major III Bluetooth headphones are the latest in the much-loved British audio brand’s wireless headphone range, and while the changes are minor over the last pair they are still a winning combination of look, sound and battery life.

Pros: great sound, long battery life, great controls, fold up for travel, sturdy, great look, good connectivity

Cons: on-ear design may not be comfortable for everyone, no NFC for one-touch pairing

Inside the Living Computer Museum founded by Paul Allen: Where PC history stays alive
Posted on Tuesday October 16, 2018

In 2017 I went up to Seattle for PAX as usual, and while I was up there I heard about the Living Computer Museum, an institution in southern Seattle founded by Paul Allen to preserve PC history. I took a day off from the show to wander down there, got a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum, and then...never got around to writing about it. Fall’s busy video game release season buried me, and while I eventually transcribed a full hour of audio and wrote the story, it seemed weird to run it six or eight months after the fact—so it just sat on my hard drive.

Paul Allen passed away yesterday though, and as a result it seems like a great time to celebrate one of his lesser-known ventures. What started as a bit of nostalgia for him, a PDP-10 in a nondescript Seattle warehouse, is now one of the best computer museums I’ve ever been to, a truly special place where visitors can go hands-on with everything from a CDC 6500 to an Apple I to a Xerox Alto.

Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro hands on: Enter the Matrix with the do-it-all Android phones
Posted on Tuesday October 16, 2018

If Huawei had polled Android fans about what they wanted in a phone, the Mate 20 Series—which includes the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro—would be pretty close to what you’d get. There are distinct differences between the two handsets, but separately, the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro might be the two best Android phones ever made based purely on specs and features.

Like last year, the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are not clones of each other, and each has its own defining characteristics. On the Mate 20, you’ll get a 6.5-inch Full HD display with a small teardrop notch, while the Mate 20 Pro brings a 6.4-inch Quad HD display with a curved OLED and a wider notch. There's still a bit of baked-in confusion because the Pro model is smaller than the standard Mate 20, but for the most part, it earns its surname.

Watch out, Steam? Discord's Store and Nitro game subscription launches worldwide
Posted on Tuesday October 16, 2018

Discord’s war on Steam (which only started after Steam declared war on Discord) is escalating. On Tuesday, Discord announced that its curated PC game store and enhanced Nitro game subscription service is available to all 150 million of its users in beta form, after debuting in Canada alone in August. The Universal Library tab—sort of a meta-launcher that lets you manage all your games within Discord—will also release globally today.

When the Discord Store appeared in Canada, the company’s blog compared it to “one of those cozy neighborhood book shops with recommendations about the hottest and newest games from us to you,” right down to notes from Discord employees saying what’s so great about particular titles. Discord’s kicking off the store with an extremely strong launch lineup of indie games:

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Founders Edition review: Better tomorrow and today
Posted on Tuesday October 16, 2018

Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2070 is a graphics card built for the future, just like the GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti. And just like its siblings, the RTX 2070’s futuristic hardware comes at a stiff price premium.

At a $500 starting price and $600 for the Nvidia Founders Edition being reviewed here, the inclusion of dedicated RTX hardware bumps the price of Nvidia’s traditionally midrange xx70 GPUs up by well over $100, planting it in the range of the existing GTX 1080. But unlike with the RTX 2080, Nvidia isn’t asking you to invest solely in as-yet-unfulfilled promises for the future. The GeForce RTX 2070 delivers an appreciable bump over the GTX 1080’s performance in today’s games, too.

EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC review: Cheaper and more feature-packed than Nvidia's Founders Edition
Posted on Tuesday October 16, 2018

EVGA’s custom GeForce RTX 2070 XC graphics card is cooler, more customizable, and just as fast as Nvidia’s RTX 2070 Founders Edition. It’s packing dedicated hardware for real-time ray tracing and AI-enhanced graphics. And it’s $50 cheaper, too.

That shouldn’t be a big deal. Nvidia’s Founders Edition cards were designed to be premium priced halo(ish) models, right? But when the GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti released last month, third-party board makers like EVGA, Asus, and MSI treated the premium pricing of the Founders Edition models as the cost floor rather than a cost ceiling. As such, all those high-end graphics cards are selling for significantly more than Nvidia’s stated starting prices. It’s a major bummer.

Microsoft Surface Pro 6 review: Microsoft adds quad-core power to its tried-and-true tablet
Posted on Tuesday October 16, 2018

Our review of Microsoft's Surface Pro 6 focuses even more than usual on the differences between this new generation and its predecessor, the Surface Pro (2017), because they seem nearly identical—at least on the, er, surface. Visually, you'd be hard-pressed to differentiate the Surface Pro 6, the Surface Pro (2017), or the Surface Pro 4, all iterations on Microsoft's iconic 12.3-inch two-in-one PC.

This time around, the major changes are inside: A bump up in the processor to an 8th-generation Core chip, some weird adjustments in pricing, and a new color— black—separate the new from the old. A downgrade of sorts in the GPU may be the deciding factor in upgrading from the Surface Pro (2017), though it's a clearer decision if you're coming from the Surface Pro 4. The Performance section of our review shows the clearest differences among the three generations.

Final day: Win an Honor View 10!

When Honor announced the View 10 earlier this year we were very intrigued by its strong specs, AI processing, and affordable price point. Boasting some of the same internals as Huawei’s Mate 10 Pro, the V10 proved to hang with the midrange phones like the OnePlus 5T.

Months later and the View 10 is still a great phone—and Honor has provided us with one to give away to our loyal fans! This is the Midnight Black version featuring 128GB of internal storage and 6GB of RAM.

Google Pixel 3 XL review: Winning the game by rewriting the rules
Posted on Monday October 15, 2018

After spending nearly a week with the Pixel 3 XL, my three first impressions of Google’s newest handset haven’t changed: It’s the fastest Android phone I’ve ever used. The cameras are awesome. The notch is an eyesore.

Thankfully, the first two qualities make up for the third. Mostly. If the Pixel 3 XL didn’t have such an ostentatious notch, it would still be an ugly phone, but after a couple days I wouldn’t have cared anymore. Six days later, the notch is still the first thing my eyes go to every time I unlock my phone. It would be one thing if there was some next-generation camera or sensor that demanded such a large notch. But as it stands, there appears to be a lot of unnecessary space around the twin cameras, ambient light sensor, and speaker that live inside it.

The new Palm phone is basically a Verizon-exclusive smart pocket watch running Android Oreo
Posted on Monday October 15, 2018

We've been reading about the specter of a Palm reboot for a while now, so Monday's release of a new handset with the company's iconic square logo on the back wasn't really news. But it still has its surprises:

  1. It doesn't have an actual name. It's just the "new Palm phone."
  2. It runs Android.
  3. It's Verizon exclusive.
  4. You need to have another Verizon mobile phone to activate it.
  5. It costs $350.

So the new Palm phone isn't really a Palm phone at all. Heck, it's not even really a phone. Sure, there's a 4G LTE chip in it, but it's no more a phone than the Apple Watch is. It relies on Verizon's NumberShare service to act like a phone when your actual phone isn't around.
