By | March 15th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

BenQ has announced the launch of three new 4K projectors that promise to deliver high color accuracy without breaking the bank. 

The new models comprise the W5700, W2700 and W1720, which are set to cost around $3300 (£2500 / AU$4000), $1900 (£1500 / AU$2500) and $1300 (£1000 / AU$1800) respectively – not bad for high-spec 4K projectors.

By | March 15th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

The UK government has made several missteps in its plan to protect the country's critical infrastructure from cyberattacks according to a recent assessment conducted by the National Audit Office (NAO).

In our increasingly digital world, the government has grown worried that its critical infrastructure will be targeted by foreign states looking to disrupt daily life.

The National Cyber Security Programme is set to be funded until 2021 and so far one of its most successful projects has been the establishment of the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).… Read the full article

Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 and Xbox One: what to know about RDR2 on consoles

By | March 15th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Red Dead Redemption 2 on PS4 and Xbox One released in October last year to overwhelmingly positive reviews, with some even dubbing the western adventure the best console game of 2018.

The sequel to one of the Xbox 360 and PS3's best games is gigantic, gun-toting open-world romp through the Wild West which pits you against rival gangs, authority figures and the elements of a brutal world.

And while we've only seen Red Dead Redemption 2 on console so far, it looks like a RDR2 PC port could be in the works (if Rockstar isn't too busy focusing on the Red Dead Online beta). 

So, are you ready to saddle up and ride out on Rockstar's latest western adventure?… Read the full article

Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC: will we see a PC release?

By | March 15th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Will we ever see Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC? Rockstar's open-world Western game Red Dead Redemption 2 launched on console to huge acclaim last October, with Red Dead Online now in beta alongside the epic-sized single-player campaign. So far, however, the game is only available on Xbox One and PS4. 

While that's not exactly a restrictive release, committed PC players have been left twiddling their thumbs in the vague hope of a Red Dead Redemption 2 PC port coming down the line. 

Players hungry for a high-spec or 4K experience can opt to play the game on the PS4 Pro or Xbox One X, but there's nothing quite like a souped-up PC rig to bring out the finer details and see what Rockstar's game engine can really do.… Read the full article

How to find the right laptop for you

By | March 15th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

There are so many variations on the types of laptop these days, there really is something for everyone. So the first step is to determine what you really need. Is this a laptop for work, for gaming, for browsing, for kids, or for a little bit of everything?

The basic factors you need to take into account are storage, speed, portability and – of course – battery life.

The former is the older style, which is slower and more power intensive.… Read the full article

By | March 15th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

If you’re in an important meeting or lecture, it can be pretty hard to capture every single word the speaker says by using a pen. That’s where dictaphones and voice recording apps come in handy. Unfortunately, when you need to transfer this information to paper, things aren’t quite so simple.   

Transcribing recordings by hand is not only a lengthy and mundane task, but it can also do more damage than good. It’s easy to mishear words and end up writing down inaccurate things.… Read the full article
