ruark linley tempo

Such is the array of home-entertainment options you can get these days, it’s a wonder that anyone still bothers with radio. Or at least it was a wonder until we clapped eyes on the Tempo. A collaboration between audio expert Ruark and royal furniture maker Linley, this British-made tuner is a devastating collision of sonic smarts and sartorial flair. With support for DAB, DAB+ and FM radio bands, a Bluetooth receiver and an aux input, there’s a wide variety of listening choices – and with a RotoDial on the top and a clear OLED display at the front, navigating your way around your favourite stations and songs couldn’t be easier. However, as satisfying as the technology is, the Tempo’s biggest selling point is most definitely its looks. Hand-crafted with solid…

we love cool tech

The year ‘2020’ has a super cool sci-fi ring to it, and after reflecting on all the incredible tech that’s come our way – it certainly feels like we’re living in some kind of fantastic future. Let’s pause for a moment and remember that Blade Runner was set in 2019… The year just passed was a rather good one for tech. We saw 5G roll out – and while getting to the point where everyone enjoys speedy coverage is still a while away, we’re going to get there. 8K TVs are now a real thing, and upscaling technology has evolved so that even if you’re not feeding your car-priced telly native 8K content, almost anything will look good on one of these. Old is new again with the new Motorola Razr. This…

1 MOTOROLA RAZR $TBA, motorola.com The Motorola Razr is a cutting-edge, foldable phone that’s also a throwback to one of the most iconic handset designs of all time: the original Razr V3 that launched in 2004… it’s the future wrapped in the past. We got a chance to test it, to see whether this synthesis is novel enough to be worth flipping out over. We assumed that foldables would bridge the gap between phones and tablets by unfolding horizontally into a wider display. Motorola has other ideas, however, and its take flips open to reveal an elongated touchscreen that’s just a bit longer than the iPhone 11’s display. So, no, you don’t get much more screen real estate. The novelty lies in what you can do when the phone is closed down to a…

get started with indoor cycling

If you’re looking for advice on how to get and stay fit: on your bike! No, we’re not being rude – cycling is one of the most effective forms of exercise you can do, offering a workout for the legs, lungs and heart. And indoor cycling is even better, as there are no traffic lights or big scary lorries. Most gyms have exercise bikes, but if you’d rather cycle at home, your two options are a dedicated training bike like the Wattbike Atom (from $3,499, wattbike.com) or a turbo trainer, which will convert your regular bicycle into a static machine –we’re fans of the Tacx Neo 2T Smart ($1,599 approx, tacx.com). And if you get bored while you pedal, you could always download a cycling app: Zwift (from Free, zwift.com), offers…
