How to watch Game of Thrones season 8, episode 4 stream online from anywhere

By | May 5th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

After some slightly slower than normal episodes of Game of Thrones, episodes 3 and 4 have brought back the action and suspense we've grown to expect from the show. After airing over the weekend, season 8 episode 4 is now available to watch, wherever you are. 

And while episode 3 was the big battle that you needed to watch, this weeks episode hit us with an equally tension filled douse of action. If you missed the live viewing slot we'd recommend watching season 8, episode 4 soon, you'll need the rest of the week to recuperate before the next one!… Read the full article

Audio Research CD6SE CD Player/DAC

By | May 5th, 2019|Categories: AV Hub|

Audio Research has released an updated version of its CD6 CD Player/DAC… the Audio Research CD6SE. (Pictured above and below, click on images for larger version).

The new CD6SE’s faceplate closely matches that of Audio Research’s Foundation and Reference-series components to enable a uniform look across the latest 2019 model platforms. However the new CD6SE also has the latest V3.0 USB audio card, providing compatibility with macOS, Windows 10, and any Linux-based system that supports ALSA devices. This feature allows full streaming capability from products such as Aurender and Roon’s Nucleus.… Read the full article

Virtual reality needs spherical displays, say researchers

By | May 5th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Virtual reality is with us. It's real. It's here. But it's not exactly popular. Some think that's because we're social beings, and the idea of sitting on our own and being entertained alone and separated from others is off-putting.

Technically impressive they might be, but if the likes of HTC Vive Pro, Google Daydream View and the new Oculus Go merely allow us to spend more time with computer-generated characters, they're only ever going to have niche appeal. Besides, collaboration between players, and even two players seeing each other, is tricky without accurate avatars, which means using a lot of hardware.… Read the full article

AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

Two weeks ago, I posted a comment on facebook around the idea that now that the LP has (thankfully) re-emerged, the sound of CD is surprising some people. This got a lot of comments and some of them made for fun reading, many defending both the sound quality of CD and that of LP. I tend to enjoy both but lean a bit heavy in the direction of LP. However, something curious has emerged as a trend lately at audio shows…the CD-based demo.… Read the full article

I unlocked a stranger’s car with my phone and drove off, and I want to do it again

By | May 5th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

This is a re-published article that we've picked as one of our favorites of the last year from our suite of TechRadar Originals'.

I don't have the keys, and I never will. I don't know the owner, and I'll never meet them. This definitely isn't my car, but I'm about to get in and drive off.

This isn't a tale of daylight robbery, nor me recounting my latest escapades in GTA. No, this is a real story of a simple – and surprisingly affordable – technology I wish I could buy right now for my own car.… Read the full article

AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by the LSA Group

Visit any audio show and you will see lots of Aurender music servers in dozens of listening rooms. Before I got further into streaming, I honestly did not pay much attention. But at this show, Aurender brought out the A30 which is so compelling that I feel it was the best new product introduction in a huge show full of them.

This is the “Swiss Army knife” of computer audio.… Read the full article

Another rumor points to super-fast storage for the OnePlus 7 Pro

By | May 5th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

We're just days away from the official OnePlus 7 unveiling on May 14, and the rumors and teasers continue to roll on. Today's tidbit of information is about the ultra-fast UFS 3.0 storage that is apparently heading to the OnePlus 7 Pro.

Sources speaking to the usually reliable XDA Developers say the Pro model will be the first phone to use the storage standard, which was announced last year.

The key improvements are in read and write speeds, so that means whenever the OnePlus 7 Pro needs to save something to the internal storage, or dredge something up that's previously been saved, it should all happen very, very quickly.… Read the full article
