Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

Samsung has quietly announced the Galaxy Tab S6, but is it a worthy upgrade over 2018's Tab S4? We compare the two tablets, highlighting the key differences to help you decide which is best for your needs.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Or Samsung Galaxy Tab S4?
It’s hard to say without going hands-on with the tablet ourselves, but based on the specs, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 offers a range of upgrades over the Galaxy Tab S4, but if you’re a casual tablet user that doesn’t need blistering speeds or a huge amount of storage, the Tab S4 is still a great option.





10in Google Home Hub Release Date & Spec Rumours: Nest Hub Max Spotted

Google introduced its 7in Home Hub just as Amazon updated its Echo Show to a 10in design, but the big G could be working on a larger smart display. Here's what we know about the 10in Google Home Hub, aka Nest Hub Max.

We couldn't help feeling sorry for Google back in October 2018 when it finally unveiled its long anticipated smart display - just as Amazon took the wraps off its second-gen Echo Show, now with a larger 10in screen.

The latest rumours suggest Google is also working on a larger version of its Home Hub, bizarrely with the name 'Nest Hub Max', which is a weird mash-up of its Nest security products, Google Home Hub and Google Home Max. If it hadn't come from a screenshot taken on Google's own site (via Android Police), we'd be dubious.

Going some way to explain this, the screenshots grabbed before the listing was pulled from Google's site reveal that the Nest Hub Max has a built-in camera. You'll remember that this was left off the original Home Hub to allay fears of the smart speaker 'spying' on its users, but with its Echo rival featuring a camera the inability to video call other users seems to be a limitation. Here it seems you'll be able to not only make video calls using Google Duo, but take advantage of built-in motion sensors and a camera for CCTV.

While the 'Nest' part of that name might refer to the security implications, and the 'Hub' to its 10in HD display, the 'Max' surely refers to its audio. The Nest Hub Max will feature stereo speakers, according to the leak.

When Is The Nest Hub Max Coming Out?
This is the first we've heard of a larger Google Home Hub, but if it's making an appearance on Google's own site it cannot be far from completion and we're unlikely to have to wait until the annual hardware event in October for news. More likely is we'll see the Nest Hub Max announced at Google I/O, with the keynote taking place on 7 May 2019.

How Much Will Nest Hub Max Cost?
With its built-in camera and larger display the Nest Hub Max will certainly cost more than the 7in Home Hub, which currently retails at £139. Meanwhile, Amazon's Echo Show 2 retails at £219.99. We suspect we'll see a price that falls somewhere between the two, perhaps around the £200 mark.

We'll update you when we hear more.

Once Upon a Hollywood Movie Review

Say Goodbye to "Hollywood"

Moments of Quentin Tarantino's new movie "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" suggest a calmer and more reflective side of the filmmaker. Tarantino is known for his unrelenting violence and rapid-fire dialogue exchanges, but early scenes in his latest movie show him taking a bit of a breath. It's a nice touch, but Tarantino cannot help giving into his worst indulgences as a director; the movie ultimately succumbs to those, and it erases all hints of goodwill that may have been built up earlier in the film.

Synology DS419slim Review

The DS419slim fills a unique niche by being a NAS drive that exclusively accepts only 2.5in drives. A limitation that is perhaps more of a curse than a blessing. Find out why in our review.
Should I Buy The Synology DiskStation DS419slim?
On paper a NAS drive that uses 2.5in drives might seem interesting until you realise the limited sizes available for NAS use, and the cost of owning them.
Unless you really need a compact NAS drive, another model is likely to be a better choice.
