UFC to make its ESPN+ debut – see how to watch online and live stream from anywhere

By | January 19th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

If it seems like ages ago since ESPN announced that it had won the rights to broadcast UFC, that's because it is. It was way back in May 2018 when the organisations revealed a five-year deal worth around $1.5 billion for ESPN to show Ultimate Fighting Championship events.

Taking place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York tonight, Fight Night is being main evented by what looks like a cracker. Flyweight champion Henry Cejudo and bantamweight champ TJ Dillashaw are duking it out for the former's championship belt.… Read the full article

Spotify’s in-car music player could be launching this year

By | January 19th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Remember that in-car player device Spotify was reportedly developing last year? It sounds like it's back on the agenda, with a potential launch happening some time in 2019 – bringing Spotify to your motor with no mobile phone required.

As per a Financial Times report, the tune-pumping add-on is going to offer voice control capabilities and cost you about $100 (that's roughly £75 or AU$140). It'll sync with your car stereo via Bluetooth, apparently, and offer quick access to your favorite playlists, though it doesn't appear to have a touchscreen or any display of its own.… Read the full article

9 videogame remakes that are better than the originals

By | January 19th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Unlike films, videogames can be hard to go back to. Whether that’s because of ageing controls, improvements in graphics, or simply nostalgia shading what actually wasn’t a good experience to begin with – it’s difficult. 

While game developers could certainly fix the problem by remaking every one of our childhood classics, for obvious reasons only a handful are ever selected. 

That said, when a publisher does commit to remaking an older release, it’s easy to mistake the title for being brand-new altogether, and that’s what this list is essentially all about: These are the remakes that went above and beyond what we expected, bettering the original’s release, making them the definitive version. 

But, before we start, let’s first clear up a common misconception…

Facebook is testing a new meme machine to bring back the kids

By | January 19th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Facebook's attempts to win back the eyeballs of teenagers aren't slowing down, if new reports are to be believed: the social network is apparently testing a meme-filled feature called LOL with selected users, based around short, shareable video clips.

TechCrunch reported the trial run, which Facebook has since confirmed – the idea is to pack LOL with funny videos and GIF-style loops so that youngsters might be tempted to spend a little bit more time away from Instagram and Snapchat. Content gets pulled from the News Feed and the best meme pages on Facebook, apparently.… Read the full article

JBL Bar 3.1 soundbar+subwoofer REVIEW

By | January 19th, 2019|Categories: AV Hub|

JBL recently launched a range of four soundbars, rising from the economical ‘Bar Studio’, a 60cm bar-only design, through the subwoofer-equipped Bar 2.1 and this Bar 3.1 up to the rangetopping Bar 5.1, which has the clever solution of sections at each end of the bar which can pull off and operate as battery-powered wireless rear speakers — a notion we first saw in a Philips Fidelio product some years ago.

For our review we have the Bar 3.1, which offers three channels of sound at the front, plus an impressively-sized wireless subwoofer to handle the bass.… Read the full article

Totaldac D1-Direct DAC Review

By | January 19th, 2019|Categories: Audiostream|

Expectations can be a tricky thing. Some people say they are essential, others are of the “don’t get your expectations up” camp. I usually fall somewhere in the middle, but when it was time to write the review of the totaldac d1-direct which sprang forth from the mind of French high-fidelity electronics guru Vincent Brient, I must say I had some serious expectations.
