iMac Pro review – Macworld UK

We’re still waiting for the new Mac Pro (and don’t even know which year it’ll be launched in), but in the meantime Apple is placating its pro users with this high-powered slab of processing muscle. The iMac Pro is available with anywhere from eight to 18 cores, and from 32GB to 128GB of RAM. The thermal architecture, so problematic on the Mac Pro, has been redesigned with ‘dual blowers’ for a claimed 80 percent increase in thermal capacity. And the…

Best Electric Bikes – Tech Advisor

Electric bikes have existed for years, but until recently were rare in the UK. Those who bought one were either cycling enthusiasts or people who specifically needed a helping hand because they couldn’t cycle without assistance, or wanted to cycle longer distances.

HTC Vive Pro Review: Hands-on with the Next Generation of VR

HTC claims that the new Vive Pro headset is “elevated in every way” – offering a higher resolution display, redesigned headstrap, integrated audio, and optional wireless support. The original Vive was already the best VR headset on the market – and the most expensive – so the Pro has a high bar to clear. We went hands-on with it at CES 2018 to find out how it stacks up and see if this really is the best VR has ever…

We live in a golden age of board gaming.
