Amazon's really going for it today. We've been taking a look at a lot of Bank Holiday sales already this week and Amazon has some cracking deals today on a range of it's own devices.

We're not kidding with that headline though. £29.99 for an Amazon Echo Dot is as low as Amazon have ever discounted the small smart speaker down to as an individual purchase. And given Amazon Prime Day is all about the best chance to get the best deal on Amazon devices, we'd like to think Amazon still has something up its sleeve for the big day.… Read the full article

Want 100MP images? The Fujifilm GFX 100 isn’t your only option

By | May 24th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

After teasing us for the last few months, Fujifilm has finally confirmed its GFX 100, a camera that promises to deliver insanely detailed images from a new back-illuminated 102MP medium format sensor. 

That's a considerable step up from the 51MP sensors inside the company's current GFX 50S and GFX 50R cameras – and there's much more to this camera than its sensor, of course.

From the 5.76 million-dot electronic viewfinder through to the five-axis image stabilization system – which, on a medium format camera, is mightily impressive – and its 4K video capabilities, there's heaps to get excited about.

There are, however, plenty of instances of robots completing tasks that a human simply couldn't — like pulling a plane, for example.

And that's precisely what the quadrupedal HyQReal robot can do. This Italian-built robot is strong enough to pull a three-ton plane down a runway. The impressive feat can be seen in this video:

This immensely powerful robot dog is the work of the Dynamic Legged Systems Lab (DLS) at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), and it is the successor to the smaller HyQ from a few years ago.… Read the full article

Trump could include Huawei in trade deal

By | May 24th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

US President Donald Trump has suggested Huawei could once again be allowed access to American technology as part of a wider trade deal with China.

The company has effectively been frozen out of the US telecoms market due to fears that its equipment is a national security risk. But this belief has spread to Huawei’s consumer handset division, too.

Last week, the US Commerce Department prohibited American firms from doing business with Huawei, a move which means the company’s handsets will no longer receive updates for the Android operating system from Google or access to its popular applications.… Read the full article

The good, the bad and the ugly – digital transformation and legacy IT

By | May 24th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

IT is a rapidly evolving industry and, as such, it is extremely difficult for businesses to keep up and continue to implement new technology as it is delivered to market. However, customer expectations and demands are arguably evolving at a faster pace than technology and, in order to remain competitive and avoid losing market share to digitally innovative competitors, organisations are under pressure to implement the latest tech and place digital at the heart of their operations. 

This is demonstrated in market growth.… Read the full article
