While simulations like Assetto Corsa Competizione and iRacing are as authentic as virtual motorsport gets, they’re not quite able to emulate the sight and smell of an actual event. It’s easy to see why they’ve inspired lots of folks to become real drivers across a range of disciplines. But surely drifting is a whole different set of scrubbed tyres? Not according to British drift champ Steve ‘Baggsy’ Biagoni, who I caught up with during the first round of Drift Masters 2024 at the Ricardo Tormo circuit near Valencia. He might’ve done things the ‘traditional’ way, but reckons starting virtually ..read more

Why Google AI will help you – but kill the web as we know it
Stuff Magazine UK

Google I/O 2024 had a script so packed full of AI, you got the feeling an AI wrote it – having first dispatched the entire exec team and replaced them with AI robots, one of which malfunctioned live on stage. And search was the centrepiece of this manifesto from the future – one that might leave the open web with no future. Because while Google pitched AI as a transformative time-saving assistant, its vision looks set to kill the web. Which I’m sure sounds hyperbolic in the extreme. How can you kill the web? It’s huge. There are even sites dedicated to wasps on trampolines ..read more

Shelling out £1000+ for the latest handsets isn’t the most appealing sell. But if you turn towards budget smartphones, you’ll often find features that aren’t quite up to scratch. If you’re a big Portrait Mode user, then this budget phone from Honor might be for you. It’s the 200 Lite, and it claims to be a portrait photography star with a 108MP main snapper.

As an Android user, I’m jealous of Anker’s iPhone-friendly Qi2 charging stands
Stuff Magazine UK

With Apple’s AirPower mat still nowhere to be seen, it’s been left to brands like Anker to launch wireless chargers that can handle multiple devices. The firm’s latest is a design statement that’ll smarten up any desk – so much so I’m questioning my loyalty to Android. If you could grow gadgets, the MagGo Wireless Charging Station 3-in-1 Stand is what I imagine would sprout from a Qi charging pad. Two spindly, sapling-like arms emerge from satisfyingly minimalist base; the larger of the two can refuel your Qi2 or MagSafe-compatible iPhone at a full 15W, while the other is dedicated to your App ..read more
