Tech to get your teeth into over the year ahead.
If the last decade taught us anything, it’s that technology is ubiquitous. Between smart phones and smart televisions, Wi-Fi and AI, virtual assistants and virtual reality, tech is engrained into our 21st century DNA. The world isn’t quite Blade Runner, even though we’re living in the era the film was set in, but evolution is heading toward the age of robots regardless.
Homes are becoming connected universes, in which televisions, refrigerators, even vacuum cleaners, work together for the greater good. Virtual assistants – Alexa, Siri and Google Assistant – play music, dish up recipes, and kick us into shape in the morning.
Following an arrangement between Google, Amazon and Apple, smart products will be able to interact (possibly conspire) with one another. Meanwhile, 5G opens up new connections, delivering fast speeds and data downloads on an unprecedented scale.

Spectre x360 15 handles video editing, videogaming, entertainment and business, via its mighty Intel Core i7 processor.
Samsung Galaxy Chromebook
Launched at CES, this premium chromebook is worth getting your paws on. It appears dainty at only 9.9mm thick, but packs a punch in its 4K UHD-res AMOLED display.
Dell Ori Concept
Here’s a Dell of an idea: a foldable tablet that you write on with a stylus, but which can be used with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. It’s a dead ringer for Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1.
