Technology just keeps changing.

Hotest Tech

Samsung ES9500 OLED TV €TBC

We’ve come along way since Sony’s bedroomsized OLED offering from a few years ago, and now you can get a richer, more colourful picture in bigger 55-inch screen surroundings. Aside from deeper blacks and the impressive contrast ratio, prospective owners can expect faster response time compared to LCD sets which will eliminate motion blur and with Samsung’s Multi-View you can watch two different programmes on the same screen via the included 3D glasses that also have integrated headphones to avoid the leaking sound of Walford’s finest.

 

Canon EOS 650D €800

The new Canon EOS 650D is a user-friendly enthusiast-level D-SLR full of new tech and functions, including a new touch-screen and much more than a simple upgrade from the Canon EOS 600D (which it now sits above in the range). As well as helpful intelligent auto modes, there are a wealth of advanced features available as your camera skills and photography progresses. The EOS 650D is equipped with a new 18-megapixel Hybrid CMOS sensor and powerful Digic 5 processor, that enables you to capture excellent, full-resolution images at up to five frames per second (fps).


Sennheiser MOMENTUM headphones €260

Delivering stellar sound is simply not enough for this style-conscious world we now live in and having realised that very thing, Sennheiser has served up its latest headphone collection that is more about looking the part. There’s little detail on the tech nestled inside, but headbands and earpads are made from soft leather and English tannery Pittards with a 3.5mm cable that hosts an integrated remote and mic which make the MOMENTUM headphones iPhone friendly.


Sony Xperia S tablet €TBC 

Having unveiled its first S tablet at IFA last year, Sony has given its latest slate the Xperia branded makeover, making it thinner (8mm) and lighter than its predecessor. Running on Android 4.0 and powered by a NVIDIA Tegra 3 quadcore processor, the Tablet S also hosts a 9.4-inch 1280x800 IPS OptiContrast display and Sony’s ClearAudio+ technology making it a suitable surrounding for watching movies. Comes with an 8-Megapixel rear-facing HD camera and 1.0- Megapixel front-facing HD snapper.


HP Envy x2 Hybrid €TBC

Post-TouchPad demise, HP has decided to embrace Windows 8 and a QWERTY keyboard dock. Powered by an Intel Atom “Clover Trail” processor with 64GB of SSD storage, the 11.6-inch Envy x2 that can work as a laptop and a tablet sports a 1366 x 768 resolution IPS display and will have Beats Audio and NFC on board like the Spectre with a rear-facing 8-Megapixel camera and a HD webcam to take care of video chats. With so many hybrid devices outed, the Envy x2 may just have the looks and the specs to stand out from the crowd.


Yamaha YSP-4300 Soundbar €1.300

If your current home cinema setup lacks an audio roar, Yamaha reckons its latest soundbar offering should help amplify your viewing with 7.1 surround sound. Using Intellibeam technology to bounce sound beams around the room, the subwoofer and bar setup uses AirWired2 technology for delay free sound and the ability to wirelessly send tunes from your Mac, PC or iOS device to put it into party action. There’s also an FM tuner on board and it can be wall mounted if space is currently at a premium.


Dell XPS Duo 12 €TBC

One of the biggest trends of IFA this year has been the surge of tablet and ultrabook mash-ups and keen not to be left out, the Duo 12 is another hybrid Windows 8 device, but with a twist. Featuring a glossy full HD touchscreen with tough Corning Gorilla Glass and an aluminium and carbon fibre chassis, a flip hinge mechanism let’s you swivel the screen vertically from within the frame so you can choose between ultrabook and tablet modes. Here’s hoping it fares better than Dell’s last hybrid laptop/tablet outing…


Sony Xperia T €TBC

Previously going by the name Xperia Mint, the Xperia T has now been made official and becomes Sony’s latest flagship smartphone. Hosting a hulking 4.6-inch HD Reality Display, the Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich handset features a 13-Megapixel with full 1080p HD video recording capabilities and 720p HD front camera. A 1.5GHz dualcore processor should handle all your multitasking and multimedia needs and with the PlayStation Certified stamp can play a host of PS One classic amongst other gaming goodies.


LG TM2792 Personal TV €TBC

If your modest living abode cannot accommodate a hulking 84-inch television, this more bedroom-friendly 27-inch telly from LG might be more suitable. Featuring LG’s sleek CINEMA SCREEN with a narrow bezel, the full HD set boasts Smart TV support and SmartShare to share content between laptops, smartphones and hard drives plus DLNA, Wi-Fi and WiDi connectivity.


Monitor Audio i-deck 100 iPod €TBC

With iPod docks ranging from the reasonable to the eye-wateringly expensive, the Monitor Audio i-deck 100 hopes to win you over by offering a premium price tag for a premium product.

Masterpiece of Bicycles €5.500

Discover the technology behind the lightest, stiffest, best-performing road bike ever produced by Giant.

The best summer cars

Our guide to the best cars for the sunny summer months.

When the sun comes out to play, there is no better (without being cheeky) feeling than hearing the roar of an engine and the wind in your hair. With miles of open road, a tanning session will never be the same again.

Whether you are staying in the city or going on a road trip, the following is a list of the finest cars in which to do so. The best thing about all of the vehicles is that when the sun goes away they are all more than capable of handling a bit of rain. Don’t let your judgement get clouded by need, these are all a case of want.

Bentley Continental GTC - €181,400

It’s a great car, the GTC. Well sorted, nice hood, good looking. This really is the place to be, and be seen, if you want to relax while you cruise. The old-school luxury is still in evidence even in this most modern of Bentley vehicles. All we ask is that you don’t get the headrests personally embroidered, unless of course your name happens to be David or Victoria.

Ferrari California - €178, 670

The California is probably the most useable ferrari to date. The new seven-speed double-clutch gearbox is much better than the F1 ‘box's auto mode - and it still provides all the thrills. The top is well-insulated, the car looks great with the roof up or down and the seats are lovely for touring. There's even decent luggage space. You could do serious miles in this prancing horse. 

Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder - €188,600

A five-litre V10 with around 520 bhp (a tad more in the Superleggera) and 376 lb ft of torque mean that the Gallardo has the go to match the show; 0-62 mph in just 3.9 seconds and a close enough 197 mph top speed. Even better is the fact that these figures are achievable reliably thanks to that four-wheel drive system and strong mechanicals. You will be impressed.

Mercedes SLS Roadster - €221,200

Get yourself an SLS Roadster. Do so and I promise you will never be bored on any drive again. It's impossible. Unthinkable even. This is arguably the most entertaining road car in existence. It's not necessarily the best, just one of the naughtiest. It looks naughty, it sounds naughty, its engine rumbles hilariously and it charges around full of the joys of being alive. This car is an example of want, not need!

Porsche 911 Speedster - €180,300

The Speedster is undoubtedly a collector’s dream. With just 356 cars to satisfy a global market, demand is sure to outstrip supply. Unsurprisingly many are already spoken for, which rather proves Porsche Exclusive knows its customers. That’s perfect justification for Porsche to build it, but if Porsche Exclusive’s level of, er, exclusivity, isn’t your overriding consideration then the Speedster is a total extravagance. Just how cars like this should be!

Audi R8 Spyder V10 - €146,327

The fact is that the R8 is sober and fairly restrained, means it’s none the worse for it. It lets Audi’s undoubted quality shine through at every level. The R8 looks, feels and smells very well made. And the best bit. Think the 414bhp V8 was rapid? The 5.2 V10 puts out 525 bhp, thrusts the R8 to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds and pushes it on to nearly 200 mph. The R8 has built a reputation as a very useable supercar and the trend continues with the V10.

Aston Martin DBS Volante ­- €205, 572

With a 510 bhp V12 engine and more than a hint of James Bond about it, the Aston Martin DBS Volante makes you feel like a film star. Completing Aston’s flagship line-up, the 2012 Volante affords customers the combination of the DBS's already-established sports car characteristics with all the thrills associated with a drop-top. Don’t buy this car if have a hatred for beauty. The DBS is simply stunning.


Corvette 427 Convertible €80.000

Chevy has confirmed that the 2014 model year will bring an all-new, seventh-generation Corvette. Until then, though, the bow-tie brand has put together a special Vette with a big-ass engine, as well as a paint-and-tape package to celebrate the nameplate’s 60th birthday. The number in the Corvette 427 convertible’s name pretty well sums up the car. It’s a Corvette convertible with a 427-cubic-inch—or 7.0-liter, in modern parlance—engine under the hood.

Bugatti Veyron €1.900.000

The Bugatti Veyron cabrio has the same 407 km/h top speed with the roof closed, but the top speed is reduced to 360 km/h with the roof off. The Bugatti Veyron cabrio price 1.4 million Euros (excluding tax). Only 150 unit are made. The equipment list of the Bugatti Veyron cabrio includes a reversing camera with 2.7-inch monitor in the rear-view-mirror, and the “Puccini” sound system with digital signal processor.

 

Lexus IS 250c €33.450

Lexus IS 250C combines the timeless allure of an open-roof car with the refinement and all-season functionality of a luxury coupe.Closed up tight, the 250C looks like a resculpted coupe version of the IS four-door sedan, albeit one with a rather large rear end. The Lexus IS 250C is a four-passenger retractable-hardtop convertible. Power is supplied by a 204-horsepower 2.5-liter V6, with your choice of manual or automatic gearboxes, each with six speeds.

 

AUDI s5 €46.000

The unique and dramatic profile of these five-parallel-spoke alloy wheels highlights the progressive look of the Audi S5. The signature xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights not only add a distinct look to the vehicle, they also improve visibility while using half of the energy of conventional bulbs. Dual-exhaust with quad tailpipes. Dual-exhaust with quad tailpipes features exclusive quad oval tailpipes that create a rich exhaust note and leave no doubt about the power contained under the hood.

 


  1. AeroPad 2
  2. Gallic synthbotherer Jean Michel Jarre’s audio company generally turns out tree-sized devices of exquisitely poor taste, all festooned with glass and metal. This scaled down one, however, is rather handsome in a sci-fi way, and comes in a choice of black, white or bamboo fi nishes. It connects via an iConnector or 3.5mm socket for other players.

Price: £571 - September

Canon 5D Mark III

 Looking for a summer camera that’s a cut above? The Canon 5D hosts a 22.3-meg, full-frame CMOS sensor alongside a DIGIC 5+ imaging processor. Capable of shooting six stills per second, it’s also a top-notch video camera, with 1080p footage recorded at up to 30fps. At £3K, the 5D is one for serious photographers who are seriously loaded.

Price: £3,000

 

Samsung Galaxy S III

The Samsung Galaxy S III is the most advanced smartphone on the planet, although a company called Apple may beg to differ. From the super smooth body that's designed to fit naturally in your palm, to the powerful quad core processor at its core, it's state of the art. Samsung say the inspiration for this smartphone is mother nature, which is marketing speak, however it is still one of the best (out of two) phones in the world.

Price: €625

 

Just in Case

If the world ends this year, we better be happily ready. Expecting beautiful chaos, Menosunocerouno has created Just In Case, so it is perfect brand for the end of times. Packaged in yellow and black, the Just in Case kit includes practical items like matches, a knife and water and a notebook in case you start to feel philosophical or need to light a fire.

Price: €TBC

Michael Young watch

Price: €165

Zboard Electric

Maybe more for the kids this one, or a gift you can borrow, just to make sure it works properly of course The ZBoard is all about your feet. Two pads on the board control its motor. Lean on the front pad to go forward, lean on the rear pad to brake. They're pressure sensitive, so speeding up or slowing down fluctuates accordingly with your shifting weight.
