Ever fancied being Stuff’s editor? Here are my three tips after a year or so in the job. Firstly, always keep the biscuit pile topped up. Fruit is not an acceptable substitute, and break out a box of chocolates if you’ve really screwed up. Secondly, be nice to Production Ed Rich lest he gets annoyed and writes some idiotic copy with your face next to it. Finally, try your damnedest to avoid crafting a magazine across two timezones. So guess what happened on deadline week of this month’s mag? That’s right, CES 2018: the tech industry’s annual extravaganza of awesome new innovations, highfalutin’ tat and TVs. Lots of TVs. And it all takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Nightmare! Faced with such a monumental challenge, I had no choice but to…

I INVESTED IN AN APPLE WATCH TO BOOST MY SELF-ESTEEM It’s taken me a while to fully embrace wearables, but as I’m determined to get fitter in 2018 I decided that a) I’m locked into the iOS ecosystem forever, and b) the Apple Watch’s persistent coaching methods are exactly what I need. After setting some low activity goals, I’ve become addicted to its congratulatory wrist buzzes – and when I say ‘low’, I mean a couple of strolls to the office watercooler see me smash my targets by lunchtime. Matt Tate, Hot Stuff Editor I HAD TO PLAY LUGGAGE TETRIS WITH A SUPERCAR Ring, ring… Hello, Audi? I’m going away for a long weekend to visit my folks – have you got anything I could borrow with a big boot and lots of room…

I STUFFIN’ LOVE THIS Tom Morgan Reviews Editor The Vive Pro feels like HTC simultaneously answering its critics, making the changes its diehard fanbase has been asking for, and drawing a line in the sand for the rest of the VR world. It really is a huge leap in terms of definition. Small text that was unreadable on the original Vive is now clear to see, and image quality in general is way better. You can still see the pixels if you go looking for them, but when you’re hurtling around Austria’s Red Bull Ring in a virtual McLaren 650S, things are moving too fast to notice. HTC has doubled down on high-end hardware that can be truly immersive. Add in the wireless adaptor, and virtual reality has never felt more ready for the mainstream…

Panasonic Lumix GH5S £2199 (body only) / panasonic.co.uk Itching to unleash your inner Martin Scorsese? Panasonic’s GH5S is built for serious auteurs and has the Ultra HD internals to match your vision… • It’s totally 4K, man There are 4K cameras and there are 4K cameras, but believe us when we say the Panasonic Lumix GH5S is a properly 4K camera. The successor to last year’s GH5, this mirrorless system camera has refined its ambitions to focus heavily on Ultra HD footage with a high-sensitivity 10.2MP sensor. • It’s got big-screen dreams New to the shooting game? Video formats are probably a mystery to you. Rest assured the GH5S can handle all of them, including ‘cinema 4K’ (that’s 4096x2160) at 60fps. HDR and 10-bit colour are also supported. • It can see in the dark Well, kind of.…

SPOILER ALERT If you’re going to name a car after the best driver ever to sit inside a Formula 1 car, it had better live up to the hype. On looks alone, we think the McLaren Senna has that in the bag: it’s a track-focused monster that’s overflowing with aerodynamic tweaks, from the colossal spoiler at the back to the angry air inlets that scythe through the carbon fibre chassis. It weighs next to nothing (for a hypercar), and with a twin-turbocharged V8 engine, you can expect a power-to-weight ratio of 660bhp per tonne. No word on frivolities such as top speed or 0-60mph times just yet, but expect them to be equally ludicrous. NEWS FEED ONEPLUS 5T’S TRUE GRIT The grippy, granular texture of this limited-edition ‘sandstone white’ version of the 5T wasn’t…
