What’s the best cheap compact camera with image stabilisation?
Posted on Thursday October 19, 2017

Antonella wants a reasonably priced compact camera with an image stabiliser that’s good for night shots. Something like the Sony RX100, but cheaper …

I’m struggling to find the perfect camera for my needs. I watched a YouTube video by one of my favourite photographers, and she suggested the Sony DSC-RX100 M5, but it costs way too much. It got my attention because it was small, it had the SteadyShot stabiliser, and was good for night shoots.

I’m now using a Canon PowerShot SX110IS, but it’s pretty terrible, unless the weather conditions are perfect. If I try photographing landscapes at night, I get wobbly pictures, and I don’t usually have wobbly hands.

Kitchen gadgets review: watermelon slicer – like taking a fruit biopsy
Posted on Wednesday October 18, 2017

This tool is more efficient than a spoon, but has a distinct air of melon-choly. Does anyone really need a melon-aid?

The iGadget watermelon slicer (£4.05, amazon.co.uk) is a double-bladed, flexible scoop used to segment a gourd along its interior wall, then grip and lift the portion.

Amazon Fire HD 10 review: affordable tablet that's great for Netflix addicts
Posted on Thursday October 12, 2017

It isn’t going to replace the iPad Pro any time soon, but with hands-free Alexa, good screen and solid battery, this device hits the spot for leisure users

Amazon’s new 10in tablet aims to offer users media viewing that rivals top-end competitors, but for under half the price of even the cheapest 10in iPad.

While the company has found great success with its smaller and cheaper Fire 7, and now the excellent Fire HD 8, the previous Fire HD 10 was a bit hit and miss. This time round the right corners have been cut in the pursuit of a cheaper price.

Pros: great screen, solid battery life, good speakers, microSD card slot, feels durable, good Alexa integration

Cons: rubbish cameras, slow charging, bit chunky and heavy, no USB-C, some apps lacking from Amazon App Store, old version of Android

Tim Anderson’s kitchen – and his recipe for chicken katsu curry | A cook’s kitchen
Posted on Saturday October 07, 2017

Powerful umami flavours, a blowtorch and a tin of Old Bay seasoning make up ramen master Tim Anderson‘s kit at home – to make consummate comfort dishes such as this chicken katsu curry from his new book

I live in Ladywell, in south-east London, in a modern building nestled in a little close. My wife, Laura, is British, but I’m originally from the midwest, Wisconsin, and when I left for college as a teenager, my mom sent me off with this family recipe book. It’s full of Anderson favourites, such as rumaki (a faux-Polynesian recipe of pineapple, chicken livers or scallops marinated in soy sauce and port, then wrapped in bacon and grilled) and tuna stroganoff – a staple in my lean years! When there’s little in the house, I refer back to it for inspiration.

'Kids should not be guinea pigs': Mattel pulls AI babysitter
Posted on Friday October 06, 2017

Aristotle was designed to ‘soothe babies, reinforce good manners, help learn a language’ until campaigners argued it would replace caring with fake nurturing

Children’s toymaker Mattel has been forced to cancel plans to produce an AI-powered babysitter, after a raft of complaints that the product would inflict psychological damage on young children.

First announced in January, the device was to be called Aristotle and was a tall cylinder, reminiscent of Amazon’s Echo smart speaker. It would have provided many similar features to smart speakers, allowing owners to purchase nappies online or verbally search for child raising help on the internet.

Google Pixel Buds: is Babel fish dream of in-ear translation now a reality?
Posted on Thursday October 05, 2017

AI-powered translation piped through wireless earbuds is another big step towards the removal of the language barrier

Alongside the new Pixel 2 smartphones Google unveiled on Wednesday night, the company also launched a set of Bluetooth earbuds called the Pixel Buds with one standout feature: instant translation between 40 different languages using a Pixel smartphone.

In a live demo on stage, the Pixel Buds were shown translating short phrases back and forth between English and Swedish using Google Translate running on a Pixel 2 smartphone.

iPhone 8 Plus: Apple looking into reports of batteries bursting out of phones
Posted on Thursday October 05, 2017

Reports spanning Asia, North America and Europe show swelling batteries pushing the screens out of Apple’s big new device

Apple is looking into multiple reports of batteries swelling within new iPhone 8 Plus smartphones, which apparently broke them open as a result.

At least five separate reports of the new 5.5in iPhone 8 Plus smartphones have shown deformed phones, swelled batteries and screens being detached from the aluminium bodies of the devices.

iPhone 8 Plus review: still massive – but not in a good way
Posted on Monday October 02, 2017

Apple’s chunky phablet stands out like a sore thumb against its ever-more sleek rivals, and not even its decent camera and battery life can save it

The iPhone 8 Plus might have some fancy camera tricks up its sleeve, but is it really worth buying its bulky frame ahead of its sleeker rivals or the potential of the iPhone X?

Like its smaller non-Plus sibling, the design of the iPhone 8 Plus has barely changed since it was introduced in 2014 with the iPhone 6 Plus, but it has aged worse. The iPhone 6 Plus was thin but relatively wide and tall for a smartphone with a 5.5in screen in 2014, with big bezels and a chunky top and bottom.

Pros: 32-hour battery life, great dual-camera system, water resistant, wireless charging, fingerprint scanner

Cons: bad 2014 design, no headphone jack, no fast charger in the box, expensive, massive bezels, too wide to comfortably hold, heavy

Chef Jacob Kenedy: ‘I do a lot of cooking at home and I never lost my passion for it' | A cook’s kitchen
Posted on Saturday September 30, 2017

A splattered splashback, expansive worktop and stylish LED ring light make up the home rig of top chef Jacob Kenedy

I live above Plaquemine Lock – my pub-turned-Southern restaurant in Islington. I was born here, opposite the pub on Noel Road, on the other side of the canal, but am newly returned. I didn’t think I’d ever been here when it was still a working pub, but my childhood au pair visited from Israel after we’d just opened and said she used to bring me in here for tea in the pram after a morning walk. So the whole thing feels quite serendipitous.

I’d been nursing the idea of a Louisiana-style restaurant for a few years, and when the pub came up, it fell into place. There’s no style of food that goes quite so well with alcoholic drinks as Cajun and Creole, and we’re right by the water here, which feels fitting ...

iPhone 8 review: so this is what good battery life feels like
Posted on Friday September 29, 2017

Apple might have phoned in the design again, but an improved power supply, wireless charging and a cracking camera save it. But is it worth £700?

Another year, another iPhone, except this time there are three of them. The iPhone 8 is the first out of the gate, but it’s overshadowed by the iPhone X looming in the wings, and while there are some new elements – a glass back – you could be forgiven for feeling a bit of deja vu.

Placing all the recent iPhones side by side, from 2014’s iPhone 6, to 2015’s iPhone 6S and 2016’s iPhone 7 and on to the 8, it’s clear very little has changed on the outside.

Pros: 24-hour-plus battery, great camera, wireless charging, fingerprint scanner, water resistant

Cons: 2014 design, boring, large bezels around the screen, no headphone jack, no fast-charger in the box, expensive

Inside a top chef's home kitchen: Tom Aikens | A cook’s kitchen
Posted on Saturday September 23, 2017

Grandad’s sweet jar and a photo of top chefs in a foodfight are among the curios in Michelin-star chef Tom Aikens’ kitchen

We didn’t do anything to this place when we arrived five years ago. We were moving house, having our first child, and I was reopening a restaurant after a big refurbishment – it’s possibly the worst three things you could be doing at the same time in the space of two weeks. The kitchen was a little bit smaller than we’d have liked, but it works. My wife, Justine, is meticulously organised, making sure everything is tidy. And I am too.

The top cabinets are devoted to dry goods and staples. I do a lot of baking with the kids, so there’s one cupboard full of flavoured sugars, sprinkles and cocoa powder. Another is full of all kinds of flour – high-protein white, all-grain, rye, spelt – for breadmaking. On top of the cabinets, above my head, I’ve two jars of kombucha . A friend gave me the starter and I love it, flavoured with mango, cinnamon, mint and verbena, citrus peel …

Kitchen gadgets review – Ravanello radish shaper: Alice through the cooking farce
Posted on Wednesday September 20, 2017

This plastic shaping tool lets you alter a radish until it resembles a fly agaric mushroom

The Ravanello radish shaper (£8.50, Amazon) is a shallow bore-well with cutaway blade. Axially rotated radishes, shorn at their circumference, produce a stalk and dome effect reminiscent of fly agaric mushrooms.

Gill Meller’s kitchen: ‘Every time I’d steal a wooden spoon, as a memento’ | A cook’s kitchen
Posted on Saturday September 16, 2017

Hand-crafted knives, an oft‑signed table and pilfered wooden spoons are prized by the chef and food writer Gill Meller

We bought this old summer house about three years ago and made it big enough for our family. South-facing, it looks out over Lyme Bay – you get beautiful views in the summer and in the winter amazing storms coming in off the sea. I built the kitchen myself, with the help of some friends, out of floorboards and roofing timbers left over from building the house. Our work surface is a repurposed gym floor and the drawers came from a science lab.

I wanted to have a very simple shelf going across the entire back wall that I could put all my things on – it’s practical being able to see it all.

Samsung plans to sell a Galaxy Note with a foldable screen in 2018
Posted on Tuesday September 12, 2017

Head of Samsung mobile says ‘holy grail of smartphones’ should be available next year, although company still has several hurdles to overcome

Samsung is aiming to launch a Note smartphone with a screen that folds next year, which would likely be the first available to feature such an innovation.

Koh Dong-jin, president of Samsung’s mobile business, said the company is setting its eyes on 2018 to release a smartphone using its bendable OLED screen technology, but he said there are several hurdles it has to overcome, leaving room to push back the release if those problems are not solved.

‘These pasta gadgets have become a signature thing for us’ | A cook’s kitchen
Posted on Saturday September 09, 2017

With everything on display, ingredients and utensils take centre stage in Michelin-star chef Phil Howard’s kitchen

We’ve been living here in Barnes for 17 years. Our overhaul of the kitchen meant a lot of decluttering. It’s a simple space, but the kind of kitchen I like to work in. There are no wall cupboards full of spices that have been festering for 25 years: everything is exposed, out, stored in kilner jars. Nothing can be hidden.

That’s a proper French farmhouse table to my left – there’s no history that I can shed light on, but I’m sure it has lots! It was one of the first expensive things we ever bought, from a little shop in Mortlake. The chairs are reclaimed too, and came from an amazing shop down in Dorset called Talisman.

Inside a chef's kitchen: the Sams of Moro | A cook’s kitchen
Posted on Saturday September 02, 2017

Sam and Samantha Clark of Moro hoard many an intriguing curio – a giant oven, a stone mill – and what exactly is a chekich?

We did the kitchen before we moved in to this house. It’s been 10 years though, with a young boy causing destruction every time he runs his greasy hands along the wall, so we’re about to give it a lick of paint. We put all the modern gadgets we find so ugly in the back, out of sight, so only the things we love are out front. We wanted somehow to bring the outside space into the kitchen, so we had a French company that specialises in greenhouses and conservatories make some beautiful glass doors that open out on to it.

Our 1950s enamel cooker came from the kitchens of Westminster Abbey. It’s so beautifully designed; it’s practically indestructible. It has a huge catering oven, which can fit our largest 100-litre pot – we cooked a tagine for 2,000 people in it last week.

Kitchen gadgets review: the Frywall – it looks like my pan is wearing an anti-scratch collar

This ludicrous flap of rubber folds inside your pan to trap splatters. Or you could have more fun using it as a megaphone to announce its ugliness

The Frywall ($21.95, frywall.com) is a rubber, high-sided collar that slots along the inner circumference of stovetop cookware, limiting spurts of hot oil and sauce.

iPhone 8 Plus vs. LG G6: Which has the best camera in a smartphone?
Posted on Friday October 20, 2017

Last year, Apple failed to take the top spot in our four-way smartphone camera shootout between the iPhone 7 Plus, LG V20, Google Pixel XL, and Samsung Galaxy S7. But this year’s iPhone 8 Plus includes some major improvements over the iPhone 7 Plus, and looks perfectly positioned to take on the LG G6, our current pick for best smartphone camera.

So which phone offers better camera performance—the latest iPhone or the G6? We took a ton of photos to find out. Oh, and in case you’re wondering where the Pixel 2 stands in this battle, just give us a few more days. We’re currently doing extra camera tests with Google’s amazing new phone, and will have definitive results soon.

Logitech G703 review: A mainstream wireless mouse with some exceptional features
Posted on Friday October 20, 2017

Logitech’s new Powerplay system is an exciting proposition. What’s not to like about a mouse pad that charges your wireless mouse as you use it? Okay, maybe the high price ($100) and the fact that Powerplay is currently only available with two mice—the Logitech G703 and G903.

Obviously, you’ll need to know more about these mice in order to know if they make Powerplay worth it. In this article we’re going to take a look at the lower-end option: the G703 (which can be found on Amazon for $94), a rework of Logitech’s right-handed G403 Prodigy mouse, but with added Powerplay functionality. Or, for those who aren’t buying a $100 mouse pad (even if it is magic), think of this as a G403 with an optional 10 gram weight.

Logitech G903 review: The best wireless mouse that (lots of) money can buy
Posted on Friday October 20, 2017

Logitech’s new Powerplay system is pretty revolutionary: a mouse pad that charges your wireless mouse as you use it. The problem? Well, it’s expensive. But even that’s not likely to be the biggest issue. No, the real problem (at least at launch) is that the Powerplay mouse pad is only compatible with two mice, the Logitech G703 and G903.

In this review we evaluate the higher-end option: the G903, an ambidextrous mouse which, at $150 list price, is one of the most expensive mice on the market. So is it worth $50 more than the sub-$100 G703? And if you’re not buying Powerplay, is it still a wireless mouse worth checking out?

Logitech Powerplay review: Wireless-charging mouse pad will make you a believer
Posted on Friday October 20, 2017

I’ve been converted. I never thought I’d be a wireless-mouse fan—first because wireless performance always lagged behind that of a wired mouse, then later because I was too lazy to periodically charge the damn thing. I could see the benefits of a wireless headset and could make charging one of those part of my daily routine. But a little cord drag on a mouse seemed a small price to pay for convenience.

And yet here we are. Logitech’s new Powerplay technology, centered on a mouse pad that charges your wireless mouse while you’re using it, has made me a wireless believer.

I might never go back.

Cord cutter

Powerplay is a two-part system: the aforementioned mouse pad and then (at the moment) one of two compatible mice to go along with it. Those mice, the G703 and G903, can be used independent of the Powerplay mouse pad, as just your everyday lithium-ion powered wireless mice, complete with a cord you need to periodically plug in for recharging. Thus I might mention them offhand, but for the sake of clarity I’m going to focus primarily on the mouse pad here. Feel free to check out our full reviews of the right-handed G703 and ambidextrous G903 though.

Yes there is a Pixel 2 and a Pixel 2 XL, but unlike last year, they aren't larger and smaller versions of the same phone.

Posted on Thursday October 19, 2017

The Motorola Moto X4 Android One is the latest proof that in the Android world, you can easily find a smartphone that offers plenty of bang for your buck. It’s the next device to come to the Android One family, a program that’s expanding beyond budget phones.

There are currently three variants of the Moto X4 floating around, including an unlocked version available on Amazon for $330 with ads on the lock screen. That device runs a different version of the Android software, however, while the Moto X4 reviewed here runs Android One tied to Google’s Project Fi, a mobile virtual network operator (or MVNO).

How to remove malware from your Windows PC
Posted on Wednesday October 18, 2017

Beware the signs of a potentially malware-infested PC: slower-than-usual performance, the recent occurrence of lots of pop-ups, and other weird issues. It's possible your system has been infected by a virus, spyware, or other nefarious entity—even if you have an antivirus program installed. Yes, out-of-the-ordinary behavior is sometimes the result of hardware issues, but it’s best to first rule out malware if your PC is acting up. Here's a step-by-step guide for taking action.

Step 1: Enter Safe Mode

Before you do anything, you need to disconnect your PC from the internet, and don’t use it until you’re ready to clean your PC. This can help prevent the malware from spreading and/or leaking your private data.

How to download the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update right now
Posted on Wednesday October 18, 2017

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update launched on October 17, stuffed with all sorts of cool new features. That doesn’t mean you’ll get it immediately. Microsoft rolls out big updates in waves. But the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is available right now if you’re the impatient type.

And bold: Microsoft only pushes the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update to PCs if it knows your computer won’t run into technical issues or nasty bugs, like the broken webcams, Kindle-induced crashes, and system freezes that followed in the wake of Windows 10’s Anniversary Update in 2016. In fact, Microsoft actively discourages workarounds like the one below even though it makes them available.

OneDrive Files On-Demand: How to enable it in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update
Posted on Wednesday October 18, 2017

Where is OneDrive Files On-Demand? If you downloaded Microsoft’s Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, you might be interested in the terrific new OneDrive placeholders feature. But on some PCs, it never showed up.

OneDrive Files On-Demand returns the Windows 8.1 placeholder functionality to Windows 10. This displays shortcuts to all the files stored in your OneDrive account in a File Explorer window, rather than storing a local copy on your hard drive. Even if you have hundreds of gigabytes stored in OneDrive, you’ll be able to see them all in a folder that takes up a megabyte or two. It’s one of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update’s best new features.

KRACK Wi-Fi attack threatens all networks: How to stay safe and what you need to know
Posted on Wednesday October 18, 2017

A devastating flaw in Wi-Fi’s WPA security protocol makes it possible for attackers to eavesdrop on your data when you connect to Wi-Fi. Dubbed KRACK, the issue affects the Wi-Fi protocol itself—not specific products or implementations—and “works against all modern protected Wi-Fi networks,” according to Mathy Vanhoef, the researcher that discovered it. That means that if your device uses Wi-Fi, KRACK likely impacts it. Fortunately, major tech companies are moving quickly to patch the issue.

Read on for what you need to know about the KRACK Wi-Fi vulnerability, from how it works to how to best protect yourself against it. We’ll repeatedly update this article as more information becomes available.

The HP ZBook x2 is a wildly powerful Surface Pro rival with a tear-off keyboard
Posted on Wednesday October 18, 2017

Whether you call it a workstation or a 2-in-1, HP just designed perhaps the most powerful tablet you can buy. The HP ZBook x2 features a quad-core 8th-gen Intel processor, workstation-caliber graphics, Thunderbolt, and up to a whopping 2TB of SSD storage. Did we mention it’s ruggedized, too?

HP unveiled the ZBook x2 in advance of the Adobe Max conference, aiming the powerful tablet at graphics professionals who need the power of a workstation while on the road. Competing tablets, such as Microsoft’s Surface Pro series or the Apple iPad, simply don’t offer enough horsepower to get the job done, according to Sarah Burton, the global lead for the zBook mobile workstations.
