I have a confession to make – I’ve never owned a Windows laptop. My portable computing odyssey began back in 2006 with a first-gen Apple MacBook in Stay Another Day white polycarbonate, and has since evolved to not one but three MacBook Airs of various ages and specs running all at once.By the end of the decade I’d descended so deeply into the macOS well, I’d become too lazy to contemplate climbing out and trying another ecosystem. Fast-forward to today, however, and a growing reliance on G Suite and Office 365 has got me wondering whether to go down the Windows or Chromebook route.Fanning the flames of indecision further is the fact that, in this age of productivity, PC laptops have diversified to such an extent that it’s now easier…

I SAW MASSIVE ATTACK REDEFINE LIVE CONCERT VISUALS… AGAINCornwall’s Eden Project is a mesmerising backdrop for any band to perform when its rainforest biomes are illuminated at night. When that band is Massive Attack the on-stage visuals cause sensory overload – especially when frontman Robert Del Naja manipulates his face in real time with augmented reality. Check out Fantom, an algorithmic sensory app allowing you to remix their songs in tandem with your heart rate.James Day, EditorI HAD A POKE AROUND THE LAST POLAROID ORIGINALS FACTORYThe Impossible Project was made possible when a few analogue-heads pooled together to take Polaroid Originals back to its former glory. In full swing, the Dutch factory is a huge and complex network of living, breathing, spluttering machines, and it takes at least two years…

You, sir, with the haircut, that thing you can do with your elbows is spectacular. You should do it more often. And you, madam, wearing that snazzy hat, don’t be ashamed of your weirdly flexible nostrils – they’ll come in useful one day. Oppo’s Find X is no different. With phone designers now banishing almost everything except the screen from their devices, but users demanding things like multiple camera lenses and fingerprint scanners, these talents have to be hidden away somewhere else. Vaguely reminiscent of the old slider phones that used to hide their keypads behind the…

$699 / astellnkern.comHIGH-END DACs MAKE OBSCURE NEIL YOUNG B-SIDES SOUND STUDIO-FRESHThe A&norma SR15 seems anything but normal. Despite being one of Astell & Kern’s more affordable premium portable music players, it’s by far its boldest in terms of design – and the on-paper specs suggest it should sound just as remarkable…● Wonky-tonk womenThe SR15’s skewed screen is a trouser-twisting breath of fresh air. The 3.3in 800x480 display looks like it’s been rotated a few degrees, and that hasn’t been done simply to confuse you – it actually gives the user’s fingers more places to grip on the chunky aluminium body without blocking any of the screen.● Jumpin’ DAC flashOf course, a hi-res music player truly lives and dies on its audio performance, and on that front the SR15 looks well-served.…
