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.





Salted Caramel Pistachio-Apricot Baklava

This sweet dessert pastry is made with thin, flaky, buttery layers of phyllo dough and filled with sweet apricots, lightly salted pistachio nuts, and a bit of brown sugar. An apricot caramel sauce is drizzled over the cooled baklava and the entire dessert is sprinkled with coarse salt, providing a sweet and salty bang with each bite.

  • 1½ cups boiling water
  • 1 cup finely chopped dried apricots
  • 1½ cups shelled lightly salted pistachio nuts, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar (see Tip) plus ⅔ cup, divided
  • 2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
  • Butter-flavor nonstick cooking spray
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

  • ½ (16 ounce) package frozen phyllo dough (14x9-inch rectangles), thawed
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
Prep  - 45 m
Ready In - 1 h 30 m
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Combine boiling water and apricots in a medium bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes. Strain the apricots through a fine mesh sieve, reserving the liquid and gently pressing on the apricots with the back of a large spoon to press out as much liquid as possible. Stir together the drained apricots, the pistachios, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and the lemon peel in a large bowl. Set aside. 
  2. Coat the bottom of a 13x9-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Unroll phyllo dough (keep the phyllo covered with plastic wrap until needed.) Layer 5 or 6 phyllo sheets in the prepared baking pan, lightly coating the tops of the sheets with the cooking spray except for every third sheet which should be brushed with melted butter. Sprinkle with about one-third of the nut mixture. Repeat layering the phyllo sheets and sprinkling with the nut mixture two more times, coating the top of each phyllo sheet with the cooking spray or the melted butter.
  3.  Layer the remaining phyllo sheets on top of the filling, coating each sheet with the cooking spray or melted butter. Brush the final sheet with the melted butter. Using a sharp knife, cut the stacked layers into 24 diamond- or rectangular-shaped pieces. 
  4. Bake about 45 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly in the pan on a wire rack. 
  5. Meanwhile, measure the drained apricot soaking liquid. Discard enough of the liquid or add water to the liquid to make ⅔ cup total liquid. Stir together the ⅔ cup apricot soaking liquid, the remaining ⅔ cup brown sugar, and the nutmeg in a small saucepan. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until reduced to about ⅓ cup. Pour the syrup evenly over the slightly cooled baklava in the pan. Sprinkle the top evenly with coarse kosher salt. Re-cut the diamonds or rectangles to serve.
  • Tip: We do not recommend using a sugar substitute for this recipe.

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.

Spinach, Asian Pear & Chicken Salad

Fragrant, crunchy Asian pears add a refreshing melon-like flavor to the healthy chicken salad recipe. Look for the large, brown, apple-shaped fruit in well-stocked supermarkets near other specialty fruit.

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.

Chicken, Brussels Sprouts & Mushroom Salad
