Wacom One Review: Well Balanced, But Cable Management a Chore

With continued competition from Apple as cheaper iPads are now gaining support for the Apple Pencil, Wacom has followed up on its £530 Cintiq 16 from last year with the even cheaper £360 Wacom One. As with larger Cintiq displays and tablets, the Wacom One is a secondary display, not a real tablet with a dedicated OS, or even a battery. Targeted at aspiring artists and students it lacks some important features you’ll find on more expensive Wacom tablets, but also manages to introduce support for Android devices for the first time – just don’t expect an iPad experience quite yet.

UA HOVR Machina Review: Ugly as Sin, but Good For Running

Last year I reviewed Under Armour’s HOVR Infinite shoes, which sync with your smartphone to offer running data from the built-in Bluetooth chip. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed working out in them. I expected the shoes to be more gimmick than substance, but the personalised gait-coaching actually helped me shave two minutes off my average mile time. They died a noble death after I ran more than 300 miles in them. So, as you might imagine, I had higher expectations for the latest addition to the HOVR lineup, the Machina. Read More >>

Samsung May Have Priced Itself Into a Corner with the Galaxy S20

Thanks to 120Hz displays, fancy new cameras, and support for 5G networks across the entire line, Samsung’s new Galaxy S20 seems like a real powerhouse of a phone. However, with a starting price of £800 for the standard S20 and prices going even higher for the S20+ and S20 Ultra, it feels like Samsung may have tried to push the price of its latest flagship phone a bit too high.

This Nifty Mattress Fan Makes Falling Asleep a Breeze

Everyone has different requirements for the perfect night’s sleep. Some people need a white noise generator, while others might require a weighted blanket, or maybe even a body pillow to snuggle up against. And while it’s not a necessity, one thing that really does it for me is a gentle breeze, like when you take a nap outside on a lazy summer afternoon. Damn, I’m getting sleepy just imagining it.

The Best Thing About This Smartwatch Is the Strap

There’s no shortage of stylish Wear OS watches—it’s literally Fossil’s main reason for existing at this point. The company and its small army of designer brands make up the bulk of Android-friendly smartwatches out there. The problem is, they’re all functionally interchangeable. They run the same software, sport the same features, with maybe one or two proprietary apps that make you go: “Huh, well, that’s kind of new I guess.” This is all largely true of the Skagen Falster 3, but there’s one thing I absolutely love about it: the strap.

Mitsubishi’s Fake LED Skylights Simulate Sunlight to Make Offices Feel Less Depressing

The technologies that once promised to free us from soul-crushing office jobs have mostly resulted in just the opposite. But Mitsubishi is leveraging one technology in an attempt to make working in a sea of cubicles feel less depressing. It’s developed an LED-lit panel that can simulate natural light coming in from the outside, creating the effect of a skylight even in an office at the bottom of a towering skyscraper where that would be impossible.

France Smacks Apple With £21 Million Fine for Slowing Down iPhones

Back in 2017, Apple admitted to throttling older iPhones with new software updates. It sparked the ire of iPhone users everywhere and a number of lawsuits, leading Apple to offer discounted battery replacements. Today, the DGCCRF, France’s consumer watchdog group, has slapped Apple with a €25 million (£21 million) fine for failing to inform consumers that updating their software would lead to slower iPhones.

Moto Hopes to Retake the Budget Phone Crown With Two New Flavours of the Moto G

Last year, thanks to phones like the Google Pixel 3a and Samsung Galaxy A50, Motorola lost its long-held title as the king of budget phones. So for its next batch of budget handsets, Motorola is making two different versions of the Moto G for 2020: the Moto G8 Power, known as the plain old Moto G Power in the US, and the US-only Moto G8 Stylus.

Fujifilm’s New X100V Could Make a Great Everyday Travel Camera

Cameras on phones have got pretty good over the last few years (especially the ones with multiple rear lenses), but sometimes you just want something that snaps pics with a bit better quality, and with the new X100V, it feels like Fujifilm has made an everyday travel camera that fills the gap between phones and cameras with interchangeable lenses just right.

Sony’s First Android-Powered Walkman Is Damn Compelling

Why would anyone want a Walkman in the streaming age? That’s the question I asked myself when I first fiddled with the small Sony NW-A105. One month later, I’ve learned enough about the music player to answer that question and many more. Sometimes its good to cut out the distractions of texts and phone calls and just embrace a tiny device that pumps out high-quality tunes. As the first Walkman device from Sony with Android built-in, the Sony NW-A105 isn’t just good for music though, it’s also a great alternative to your phone for long vacations. Read More >>

One Sad Tweet May Have Just Signaled the Death of BlackBerry Phones

There hasn’t been a new BlackBerry phone since the Key2 LE (which is basically a slightly cheaper and slower version of the original Key2) came out in the summer of 2018. But now the entire future of BlackBerry phones is in question following a tweet from the official BlackBerry Mobile account. Read More >>

Back at the launch event for the iPhone 11 last autumn, the developers of Filmic Pro got on stage and showed off a new app that allowed iPhone users to record videos using both the front and rear cameras on their iPhone simultaneously. And yesterday, that app finally made its official debut in the form of Filmic’s new DoubleTake app. Read More >>
