The Chainsmokers - Sick Boy Music Album Reviews

Trading away the dance-pop trifles of their hits for a faceless stylistic shuffle, the duo seems to be tiring of itself, too.
We’re going to be stuck with the Chainsmokers forever. Though the unctuous duo of Drew Taggart and Alex Pall are probably not destined for decades of unqualified success, their insipid spin on EDM’s big-money boom has become as much an eye-rollingly omnipresent part of our national fabric as “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Most living humans in the Western world have likely had the unfortunate sensation of having a Chainsmokers hit stuck in their head, as gross as gum on a hot bus seat; after all, their Coldplay collaboration, “Something Just Like This,” seems made only to ooze from department-store speakers for eternity. There’s even a goddamn feature-length film based on the M83-aping “Paris” in development. Like so many modern American atrocities, the Chainsmokers are just something we’re going to have to endure.

Foxit PhantomPDF Business 7 PDF editor review: This easy-to-use PDF editor will have you up to speed in record time

Foxit PhantomPDF Business 7 is an easy-to-use PDF editor that will have you up to speed in record time. Read our Foxit PhantomPDF Business 7 review. 

Foxit PhantomPDF Business 7 is among the cheaper of the PDF editors aimed at professional users and, while there are cheaper products on the market, it represents a huge price saving compared to the de facto standard, Adobe Acrobat XI Pro which is over four times the price. Here we investigate whether this middle-of-the-road pricing has resulted in middle-of-the-road performance, usability and features. 
To set the ball rolling, we’ll investigate what PhantomPDF Business 7 provides you with in the way of its basic functionality. First and foremost it provides you with a means of generating PDFs and this can be done within any Windows application via a print driver or by using the additional toolbars that are installed in Office applications.

You can also carry out batch conversions, which offers a major time saving when you have a lot of files to convert. Then you get full editing tools for PDF files plus commenting facilities for collaborative review, plus the means of exporting from PDF to a Microsoft Office file format, i.e. Word, Excel or PowerPoint, to an image, an HTML file, or as plain text.

You can add user input fields of various types so that your plain PDF document becomes a form, and you can sign it with a visible signature or an ID certificate. All this is much as you’d expect from a fully-featured professional PDF editor and, in this respect it is comparable to several other products. 

Where Foxit PhantomPDF Business 7 does stand out though, is in the attention Foxit have made to help get you up and running with the minimum possible hassle. The use of a ribbon interface rather than old-style menus is one example of attention to detail in the user interface, albeit perhaps not a huge advantage and by no means unique among PDF editors.

However, what we particularly liked is that on first starting up the software we were offered quick links to several YouTube videos that explain how to carry out some of the more commonly required actions. The opening screen also gives you the support phone number, albeit one in the USA, and more useful for UK users, a link to raise a so-called “trouble ticket” online.

  • Windows XP Home, Professional, or Tablet PC Edition with Service Pack 2 or 3, Windows Vista Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, Ultimate, or Enterprise, Windows 7, Windows 8 full version, Microsoft Office 2003 or later version required for some PDF creation features.

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.

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.
