Chris Clayton on last week’s show - Disgrace! Not even two hours!

Xerxes Hodivala on High-Powered Chromebooks

In case anyone is after a high power Chromebook for a half reasonable price, I just bought a Lenovo C630 brand new for £599 from Lenovo direct. That price gets an 8th gen i7 (quad core, 8 threads), 16GB Ram, 128GB storage, and 15.6 inch 4K display. Updates are planned to continue until 2025 but I am confident that they will continue longer due to the Neverware acquisition.

Hardline on the hardware:

OPPO Watch 2 launched in China with Snapdragon Wear 4100 (teased last show)

Nokia is lending its name to a new line of smart home lighting products

Nokia T20 Tablet in the Pipes?

Nothing ear (1) Launched £99

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic live images leaked

Upcoming MediaTek ARM Chromebooks are faster than a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865

Xiaomi unveils 27" 165Hz gaming monitor, Wi-Fi 6 router, a new scooter and an air fryer

Surround yourself in absolute realism with Sony's new flagship 7.1.2 channel HT-A7000 Soundbar - Tech Addicts

Chris Kelly - Nearly £2.5k by the time you have added the optional rear speakers and sub. For that money you could buy a cinema amp and discrete speaker package that would deliver far better sound. It's one of those "you can't cheat physics" things, bigger boxes with greater physical separation will always win!

Huge data leak shatters the lie that the innocent need not fear surveillance

“...On Tuesday 27 July, at 8pm BST, join The Guardian’s head of investigations, Paul Lewis, for a livestreamed Guardian Live event on the implications of the Pegasus project. Book your ticket here.” £5 each!

Apple's iPhone has a 'major blinking red five-alarm-fire problem with iMessage security,' according to a cybersecurity researcher

BitLocker will be Enabled on all Windows 11 PCs
