Up, Up in 'The Air' – A Look at WK Audio's Rarefied Flagship Power Cord

By | November 2nd, 2019|Categories: Positive Feedback|Tags: , |

WK Audio The Air AC Cord

It’s like sliding into the cockpit of a Formula One car. Everything about The Air screams first class—from its Furutech F150 M Nano Crystal Formula Rhodium plated connectors (HERE), laser cutout stainless steel tag affixed in Ferrari red leather, the thick, dual cord body in sky blue mesh, to its wooden cigar box like case. Like a European sports car’s ride, it’s stiff, but not as rigid as WK Audio’s “The One.” Give it a spin by plugging a preamplifier into a power conditioner with it, and there’s a subtle improvement, but connect it directly into a wall outlet—especially with the amplifier plugged into the wall socket with “The One” (you can read more about it HERE) and you’re off to the races!… Read the full article

BlizzCon brings new Diablo Immortal details

By | November 2nd, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

The big Diablo news from BlizzCon this year is, without a doubt, the confirmation of Diablo 4. But Diablo Immortal, the mobile announcement that caused such a furore at BlizzCon 2018, is still in development and Blizzard has some more details to share for it too. 

In a much quieter fashion than last year, Blizzard kept Diablo Immortal out of the BlizzCon opening ceremony and instead posted an update on its official blog with a trailer as well as new information on the game’s story, its classes and its gameplay.… Read the full article

By | November 2nd, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Another big-name movie has been added to the Disney Plus library ahead of its grand launch on November 12: James Cameron's 2009 sci-fi epic Avatar.

If you sign up on or before launch day, you'll be able to start streaming the tale of the Na'vi people and their home planet of Pandora straight away, and the film's inclusion might just be enough to tempt you into subscribing.

Famous for its big budget, and cutting-edge special effects, and huge box office takings – it was the highest-grossing movie of all time for a decade – Avatar is also a very long flick, clocking in at 2 hours and 41 minutes.… Read the full article

HarmonyOS: what you need to know about Huawei’s new operating system

By | November 2nd, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

In August 2019, Huawei CEO took to the stage of the company's annual Developer Conference, to announce HarmonyOS, the company's new cross-device operating system.

The announcement was clearly a thinly-veiled response to political events over the last year, but the message is clear – if Huawei has to ditch Android, down the line, it can.

For the time being though, this is a smart device operating system leading the charge alongside other unified operating systems such as Google Fuchsia

HarmonyOS (previously codenamed HongMeng) is a platform designed for a variety of devices, and is currently aimed at IoT devices such as smart displays or smart home equipment.… Read the full article

Can Facebook ever be kept safe without hurting staff?

By | November 2nd, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

In 2017, Facebook ever so slightly adjusted its mission statement. Out went a pledge to “make the world more open and connected”, and in its place came an intention to “give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together”.

You could view this as an admission that 'open' had failed. 'Open' means open to hate speech, child abuse, violence, sex and the kind of illegal acts Facebook would rather have nothing to do with. And yet the company now finds itself having to clean up such messes every hour of every day.… Read the full article
