Çaykh - V I S C 0 9 Music Album Reviews

On a tape label with links to Hamburg’s Golden Pudel club, the German curator delivers a deep-diving, pitch-shifting DJ mix traversing Alice Coltrane, desert blues, and cacophonous synths and drums.
The Berlin-based producer and DJ Çaykh, born Nicolas Sheikholeslami, is a shadow on the wall of the internet, mentioned in passing by those who've admired his remarkable mixes but with almost no presence beyond his SoundCloud. That account reveals that he runs a cassette label dedicated to Somali music; he has released two (excellent) compilations to this effect in recent years, one of which was nominated for an unlikely Grammy. His label’s address is listed as “Berlin, in front of BND building, Germany.” And that’s about it. Sheikholeslami is clearly the sort to let his music speak for itself—and happily, it speaks eloquently. This is the second mixtape he’s produced for Hamburg’s V I S label, and like the first, it’s a strikingly original piece of curation.

Tablet/eReader Deals: Buy a NOOK HD+, Get a Free NOOK Simple Touch

Barnes & Noble wants to double your pleasure -- or at least give you double the NOOK devices for the price of one. The company just announced plans to give away a free NOOK Simple Touch to anyone buying the NOOK HD+, for a limited time.

The offer is good from now through March 31, 2013 or whenever B&N runs out of stock.

To get it, you'll have to purchase the NOOK HD+. First announced back in September, the NOOK HD+ is the company's 9-inch tablet, which boasts a personalized experience for every member of the house, via Nook Profiles. That also means that everyone can have access to over three million books, magazines and apps, as well as content from the Nook Video and Nook Catalog services, UltraViolet streaming, and the unit's HDMI output.

Weighing in at just 18.2 ounces, the NOOK HD+ has a 1920-by-1280 resolution, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM, expandable memory, Bluetooth and WiFi support. B&N offers a 16GB version for $269, with 32GB costing $299.



The NOOK Simple Touch was first introduced in late 2011, with an MSRP of $99. It's since gone down to $79, making it a nice freebie. It's also a nice little portable, offering a 6-inch E Ink Pearl display and battery life of up to two months on a single charge. It's really for the reader in your life (or your house), allowing users to pack multiple books into a single portable. Other features allow readers to look up words, highlight passages, adjust font sizes and styles, and more.

"By offering a free NOOK Simple Touch with the purchase of NOOK HD+, customers can fully experience all that the expansive NOOK Store of more than 3 million titles has to offer," said Jamie Iannone, president of digital products at NOOK Media LLC. "NOOK HD+, with its must-see full HD 9-inch screen, is perfect for experiencing movies, apps, magazines and more, while NOOK Simple Touch is ideal for reading millions of books with crisp, clear text on a portable and lightweight device that's comfortable to hold for hours."

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Announced in June 2018, the Moto Z3 Play was never joined in the UK by the standard Moto Z3. It's possible that for the Z4 series we will again see only the Play model go on sale here, with the Moto Z4 Play expected to be announced in the UK in mid-2019.

Nokia 9 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We've waited two years for the Nokia 9, and at the end of this month the company could finally put us out of our misery. Here's what we know about the Nokia 9 PureView, which could feature a penta-lens rear camera.
Nokia made its comeback to the Android market in January 2017 with the Nokia 6, and we've been waiting two years now for its long-rumoured flagship Nokia 9 to arrive. At MWC 2018 we thought that time was here, and then we got the the Nokia 8 Sirocco. But now the wait could really, really be over, as the Nokia 9 is tipped to land before the end of January 2019.
