APPLE fans are fuming after finding their brand new iPad Pros are bent. Some claim the £770 device came warped straight out of the package, while others say the kink appeared within days of purchase. Images posted to social media show a small bend in people's devices that is clearly visible to the naked eye. Furious buyers took to Twitter to vent their frustrations. One user said: "Got my 12.9 inch iPad Pro 6 weeks ago. Have never taken it out of its case. Never taken it out of our house. Never bumped it. Today I noticed it is bent. Went to Apple, not covered under warranty. Can buy a replacement for $999. What a joke." Another wrote: "I've had 3 2018 iPad Pro 12.9 inch's all bent. The first one the store tried to refuse to replace it because they said it was accidental damage, should have seen there face when the replacement unit was bent then they ordered me another one.... Also bent." Following weeks of hearsay, Apple has finally responded to the volley of abuse … [Read more...] about Apple fans FURIOUS after receiving £770 iPad Pros that are BENT

GOOGLE'S new Pixel 3 has one of the world's best smartphone cameras – but is it a decent replacement for a proper DSLR shooter? Snapping live sports is one of the hardest challenges for any camera, so we had pro photographer Daniel Lewis test out the Google Pixel 3 at EE's Wembley Stadium. Shooting sports fixtures is tricky, particular at night. Lighting issues, fast motion, and unpredictable targets makes it a nightmare to capture shots. And even though smartphone cameras have improved massively in recent years, it's still very hard – small image sensors and lenses make life difficult. But pro shooter Dan Lewis managed to capture some seriously impressive shots at this month's England v USA friendly fixture. The Google Pixel 3 fared particularly well, even in dark conditions. And although some moving shots have minor blur, the action shots are impressive given how fast sports motion is. Several of the photos demonstrate really good depth of field, keeping the subject in … [Read more...] about Can the Google Pixel 3 smartphone turn you into a pro sports photographer? Sort of

A short while ago, I got to stick my sweaty face into HTC’s second generation PC VR headset, the Vive Pro, which was on show in the UK for the first time. The headset boasts a higher resolution and OLED displays, among other upgrades, and so the question is whether or not this can overcome VR’s visual shortcomings and give the medium a much-needed second wind. Well, it’s definitely a big improvement – but that’s also something of a double-edged sword. I tested the Vive Pro with the suitably atmospheric undersea exploration game Operation Apex, made by UK developer Curiscope in partnership with Vive Studios. It was released last December, but has just released a big update which includes an appealing free-roam mode. Though it’s just dandy on the original Vive, its grand seascapes and looming (but non-aggressive) sharks made a fine demo for this new version of the hardware. The Vive Pro’s resolution has jumped to 2880×1600 from the regular … [Read more...] about Vive Pro tested: the visual upgrade VR desperately needed, but is it enough?
