A luxury coffee maker called Krups EA9010

Having at home a coffee maker that makes a good-quality espresso is not something easy to do. Every customer is probably in search of a good-quality espresso maker that will make a decent cup of coffee every morning. 

Unfortunately, this machine is hard to find and the best ones are commonly coming at a high price. The same problem was met with the new Krups EA9010.

This new espresso maker is available for the price of 2,500 dollars, which is a huge price, especially for those who have a small budget. However, at this price range, the new Krups EA9010 makes an incredible cup of coffee.

The new Krups EA9010 is considered to be a deluxe super-automatic machine that has the ability to make an incredible shot of straight espresso. Therefore, the new machine will grind its own bens, it has a built in burr grinder and also froths and steams milk. 

However, for those who are not espresso fans, this new machine also has a larger library of coffees, like cappuccinos, lattes or flat whites. All these type of coffees can be made by a push of a button. Another interesting thing about the new Krups EA9010 is that it services itself regularly, so users will not have to worry about that. 

As for design, the new Krups EA9010 is very decent, having some interesting features, including a larger display. So, besides the glowing light or the protruding parts, this coffee machine is made out from premium materials. Of course, at the price of 2,500 dollars, this thing has to be obvious. However, there are no fancy features that will pop up, meaning that this coffee machine is pretty decent and will fit perfectly in any kitchen. Probably, the only thing that will attract the attention is the color LCD touchscreen, which customers will not see at any coffee maker. Yes, the color LCD touchscreen is situated at the center of the machine, where users can choose their coffee type. 

So, for customers who are willing to spend 2,500 dollars for a coffee maker, the new Krups EA9010 can be recommended. 

The new Anova Precision Cooker Bluetooth + Wi-Fi

Anova is recommend for those who are new in the kitchen. This new device comes with a Wi-Fi feature which can be pretty useful for owners. Anova Precision Cooker Bluetooth + Wi-Fi is available at the price of 199 dollars and the company wants this precision cooker to be part of everyone’s kitchen. 

But, how exactly does this device work? Well, this sous vide device has the ability to heat and circulate water to cook vacuum-sealed foods. Is it worth the price? Will customers need such model in their kitchen? Well, these questions will most likely be answered after this model will hit shelves.

So, this new model is the second model that Anova has released, because they have also released a model last year, but with Bluetooth feature only. The previous model has offered users the ability to control the device from across the house, but with the new model, they will have the ability to control it from across the town. 

Probably, the Wi-Fi feature is the only add that is important, because the rest of the specs seem to be similar with the previous model. To be added that the last year’s model costs 20 dollars less. However, having a Wi-Fi feature seems to be important, especially for those who want to cook their dinner before they arrive home from work. 

The new Anova Precision Cooker Bluetooth + Wi-Fi also has an app, which is pretty useful and user-friendly. However, this model is quite easy to be used, so many owners will not need an app for that. They just have to plug in the device, fill a container of water and attach Anova to the side of the pot. After that, users well need to scroll the wheel to set the temperature and press start. That’s about it, it is very simple and the device will automatically start to heat and circulate the water. After the water has reached its desired temperature, the device will beep. 

However, customers should know that this device is just used for vacuum-sealed bags of food that will be introduced in the water as long as the recipe dictates. 

The new Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard

Logitech is one of the most famous brands when it comes to accessories, like keyboard or mouses. These days, people are tending to own several smart devices, including a tablet, a laptop or a phone. That’s why Logitech keeps releasing its Bluetooth keyboards that can be paired with any of these devices. 

So, now Logitech has released another keyboard, called K380. It is available at the price of 40 dollars and it is probably the best compact full-size wireless keyboard that the company has ever built.

For starters, the new Logitech K380 seems to a little bit of heft, weighing approximately 14.92 ounces, with batteries included. This means that this keyboard is perfect for a desktop computer, but it is still compact and light for traveling. Moreover, the new keyboard measures 4.9 inches high, 0.6 inches deep and 10.9 inches wide. To be added that it is available in two colors: blue or dark gray. 

Another interesting thing about Logitech K380 is that it can be paired with three different devices, which is a very useful thing. How can it do that? Well, users will just have to press one of the numbered “Easy-Switch” buttons situated in the top left corner and it will toggle between devices. The pairing also works pretty smoothly, meaning that users will have no problem switching between iPhone 6, MacBook Air or Asus Chromebook, for example.

So, the new Logitech K380 has the ability to distinguish between Windows or Mac machines, which is a pretty good thing. This means that users will have the possibility to use the keyboard with a MacBook Pro or with a Windows laptop. Moreover, the keyboard also supports shortcuts or other functions, but can also be paired with Chrome OS devices and Apple TV. As for the keys, the feeling is very delicate and the buttons are spread out enough to keep mistypes down to a minimum.

Probably, users are not familiar with round keys, but after a couple of minutes of typing, they will get used to it. The new Logitech K380 is an excellent keyboard, especially because it can be paired with three devices. 

Panasonic HX-A1, the new action cam with night vision powers

These days, brands like GoPro and Sony have released action cams with 4K capabilities on the market, making an ever harder mission for other brands to be successful. However, these action cams also have an expensive price, so those who are looking for a smaller cost will have a though mission. 

Therefore, Panasonic has released their new action cam, called HX-A1. This new HD action cam is recommended for budget-minded buyers who are not willing to spend a high price on a camera.

So, the new Panasonic HX-A1 is available at the price of 199.99 dollars, which makes it half as much as GoPro’s action cam, which costs 399 dollars. 

The new Panasonic HX-A1 is an affordable full-HD action cam that is perfect for budge buyers. This device is recommend for those who want to film in complete darkness, having 0 lux night vision mode, but requires users to bring their own infrared torch. 

As for design, the new Panasonic HX-A1 weighs approximately 45 grams, having a completely cylindrical body. Moreover, this camera measures 8.4×2.6×2.6 centimeters. To be added that is has a 3.54-megapixel 1/3-inch MOS sensor that has the ability to offer full-HD video. 

Another interesting thing about the new Panasonic HX-A1 is that it is rated to be waterproof down to approximately 1.5 meters. This is a good thing to know especially for those who are willing to go diving. To be added that this camera is also dustproof and the company claims that it is was created to survive drops of up to 1.5 meters. Moreover, it is freeze-proof to -10 degrees Celsius. 

The new Panasonic HX-A1 records 29.97 frames per second by default in 848x640p, 720p and 1080p resolutions. However, probably that the main attraction on this camera is its night vision feature. The only thing that users have to do it to swap out the standard lens for the included “IR” lens, and to buy an infrared torch. Once these points are checked, the Panasonic HX-A1 has the ability to deliver true night-vision footage, which is very rare on the action-cam market.

Raumfeld One S, the perfect speaker for bathroom or kitchen

Probably, everyone knows that Sonos has been the leader on the music streaming market for a long period of time. Over the years, many companies have released devices on this market, devices that came with incredible new features which managed to attract a lot of customers. 

Some of these new brands, are Denon, Bose, Yamaha or DTS. So, it looks like there is time of a new brand, a German brand, called Raumfeld to make its presence felt on the market. This new brand has released a speaker that is called Raumfeld One S and which comes with some interesting new features.

For starters, the new speaker is available at the price of 249 dollars. To be added that the company’s line of wireless products is quite pricy, knowing the fact that the Stereo L costs approximately 2,000 dollars. So, this means that this new speaker is an entry-level device released by Raumfeld, but it offers some excellent sound quality and an attractive design. Compared with other competitors, like Denon’s HEOS 1, this one will probably win at a few chapters, because it is the only one that supports higher-than-CD-quality music.

As for design, the new Raumfeld One S is probably the best good-looking speaker on the market. This speaker is available in two colors: white and black, but either of these versions is dominated by a black cloth grill. So, the front and sides are covered in black acoustic cloth, while the rest of the speaker is made out of plastic. To be added that this speaker has a moisture-resistant design, which makes it perfect to be used in bathrooms or kitchens. Moreover, it also has a rubber stopper to block the ports underneath. 

To be added that Raumfeld One S has the ability to run either over Wi-Fi or via Ethernet. This means that it doesn’t have the function to run via Bluetooth, which is a minus. Therefore, there is also a USB port, meaning that it can be attached to several devices. As for performance, Raumfeld One S delivers a decent sound and it doesn’t have a problem with powering a large living area. 

Microsoft has released the new Lumia 950

There are approximately two years since Microsoft has released a new phone. Many customers have waited for the giant company to release a new device, especially after they have released Windows 10, an operating system that works on PCs, tablets or phones. 

Probably, many people are looking for a device that comes with a simple and clean interface, and Windows 10 has the power to offer that. Moreover, everybody is curious to find out if Windows 10 will have what it needs to compete with giants such as iOS and Android. Well, that time has come, because Microsoft has released their new phone, called Lumia 950 and which runs Windows 10.

For starters, the new Microsoft Lumia 950 comes with a decent hardware, but probably not that inspired, especially when it comes to the Continuum feature. As for display, this one is incredible, offering a good view especially for those who want to read outdoors. 

As any other Microsoft or Nokia devices, this new model also comes with a plastic construction, which is fine, offering a good feeling. As for first impression, probably customers will like the idea that Microsoft is still coming with a removable battery and a microSD card slot. The Cortana voice assistant is present on this device and many voices are claiming that is better than Apple’s Siri.

However, the bad thing about this device is that Windows 10 hasn’t fixed enough past problems, like access to limitless apps or mobile payments. This is a huge disappointment, especially for those who have hoped for more features from Windows 10. Probably, many customers will say that this new phones costs too much for what it has to offer. However, all these problems will probably be fixed with an update, but we don’t know when this will happen. 

So, the new Microsoft Lumia 950 comes at the price of 550 dollars, which is probably a little bit expensive considering that Samsung’s and Apple’s flagship phones are in the same price range. Under the hood, customers will find a six-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage that can be expand to 200GB. 

Windows Celebrates 30 Year Anniversary

Windows is celebrating its birthday. The famous operating system, which remains the most used in the world, has just turned 30.

So, this means that the system that has changed the face of computing was first released in 1985. That was Windows 1.0. Now, the popular company is promoting its latest operating system, the Windows 10.

So, the first Windows emerged back in 1985. When thinking of today’s standards, this system is without a doubt a rudimentary one. Furthermore, at the moment when it was released, Microsoft failed to keep its promise according to www.maddapple.com and the famous company actually launched its new product about one year and a half later than it originally claimed.

However, the wait was worth it, as Windows changed the way computers functioned. And it turned out to be the most used operating system in the world, functioning on billions of personal computers.

Windows has also made Microsoft successful, being its most viable and accessed product. The second version of the operating system was released by the tech giant only two years later, Windows 2.0.

The third Windows version was released in 1990, bringing some improvements to the standard version. However, 1995 was a crucial year for the operating system, this being the moment when Microsoft released Windows 95.

Windows 95 came with a new start menu, but it also supported the Internet and came with a new plug and play support for easy hardware installation. Six years later, Windows released the XP, which actually continues to be characterized as the most iconic version ever launched.

Windows XP brought numerous changes and most of all, it was very a user friendly system. It also came with a new visual style and a bright color palette.

However, Windows XP, released in 2001, was the huge success for Microsoft. It sold 400 million copies only in the first year. Even though the operating system was discontinued by Microsoft, meaning that the famous company decided to stop issuing updates for it, Windows XP is still used all around the world.

Some statistics indicated that last month, the operating system that is no less than 14 years old was still installed on about 12 percent of the computers found in the world.

Well, if the XP was a huge success, Microsoft also made some mistakes. One of these mistakes is the launch of Windows Vista. The Vista is used by only 1.7 percent of Windows users at the moment.

However, although Vista wasn’t a success, it eased the transition to Windows 7, which turned out to be quite appreciated. Nowadays, most computers that run Windows actually run this operating system.

Windows 8 wasn’t the success that Microsoft hoped it would become, but nowadays it is the third most used Windows operating system.

The last version of Windows that the famous company released is naturally Windows 10. This operating system was released in July and Microsoft hopes it will be a huge success. Well, it seems that people are quite interested in this product, as it already holds about 8 percent of the market and its popularity is growing.

Lenovo has released the new Yoga 900

Lenovo is well-known for releasing some of the best hybrids on the market. The Yoga line is one of the most appreciated lineups at the moment, due to these devices’ impressive hardware and design. Last year, Lenovo has released the famous Yoga 3 Pro, which is considered to be the most-advanced and slim Yoga hybrid laptop available in sale. 

That hybrid had a high-resolution screen, a unique watchband-style hinge and a very thin body. Well, this year, Lenovo has unveiled its new hybrid laptop, called Yoga 900. The new laptop comes with the same watch-band style hinge from the Yoga 3 Pro, but it also has many other interesting features.

For instance, new Lenovo Yoga 900 comes with an impressive and new Intel Core i7 processor, which is better compared with the previous Core M. Moreover, this new laptop is very portable, but it is a little heavier and thicker than last year’s model, weighting 2.8 pounds, compared to the previous 2.6 pounds. However, that is not a huge difference, knowing the fact that this laptop comes with a better performance, a longer battery life and it even looks better. 

The new Lenovo Yoga 900 starts at the price of 1,099 dollars, homing a new sixth-generation Core i7 CPU, 256GB SSD of storage and 8GB of RAM. To be added that the 1,399 dollars model comes with an upgraded configuration, so it has 512GB of solid state storage and 16GB of RAM, which is pretty impressive. Another interesting thing is that all the Yoga 900 models come with a 3,200×1,800 touchscreen, which is in the same high-resolution category as Microsoft’s PixelSense display and Apple’s Retina.

As for design, this laptop is probably one of the best looking devices on the market. As everyone knows, the Yoga line comes with a hinge that folds back 360 degrees, a feature that was introduced by Lenovo since 2013. The keyboard found on this device has the standard Lenovo design, with just enough key travel and the typing is excellent. Other interesting features are: two USB 3.0 ports, an SD card slot and a USB-C port. 

The new Toshiba Satellite Radius 12

Customers who are searching for a nice and cheap laptop are recommended to try Toshiba’s devices. These laptops are among the cheapest and most decent laptops that customers could purchase for a relatively small amount of money. 

However, it looks like Toshiba is trying something new, releasing a much more expensive laptop that comes with interesting features. This new laptop is called Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 and promises to take down giants like Apple or Lenovo. So, for those who are willing to spend a large amount of money on a laptop that comes with a speedy solid state drive and a metal chassis, the new Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 could be a good choice.

This new laptop packs all the interesting things that a customer could possibly want. So, what it is so special about this device? Well, the new Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 comes with Windows 10 operating system, a sixth-generation Intel Core i7 processor, accompanied by 8GB of RAM, plus a Technicolor-certified ultra-high definition 4K-resolution touchscreen display. Therefore, for delivering 4K content, this laptop seems to have 3,840×2,160-pixel resolution. This means that Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 has more pixels than any of Apple’s devices, plus a touchscreen feature. With such kind of hardware and specs, this laptop is without a doubt a must have on the laptop market.

However, since it is coming with such high-end specs, this laptop is not cheap at all. The new Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 is available at the price of 1,299 dollars. Yes, this is an impressive price, but this laptop also has another feature that not many laptops have these days. We are talking about a face-recognizing camera that can automatically log the user into Windows the moment he sits down in front of it. With this new feature, owners will not be forced to enter a PIN code or a password to access Windows. 

However, this new laptop also has some strong contenders on the market. For example, HP Specte X360 will be an interesting choice for customers, especially because it has a better battery life. However, Toshiba has an advantage, and that is the 4K touchscreen display.

An excellent midpriced receiver called Denon AVR-S910W

Denon is one of the most famous brands when it comes to receivers or speakers. Over the years, this company offered a large variety of models that suit larger and smaller budgets. The new Denon AVR-S910W has been launched these days and promises to satisfy all clients’ needs. 

The new receiver will be placed in the middle of the price range and comes with an incredible performance, including the features that most customers are looking for, like compatibility with 4K video sources, the latest Dolby Atmos and DTS:X surround formats and of course, Bluetooth wireless audio.

So, compared with many other receivers on the market, the new Denon AVR-S910W works perfectly with movies, even better than with music. This new receiver offers an incredible openness to its sound that not even the most priced receivers on the market can match. 

However, users will have to be careful at speaker matching, because this receiver can be too bright for some models. Moving forward, its design is like any other receiver on the market, a big black box that homes several buttons in the front. For clients to recognize the brand, they need to read the brand name that sits in the left corner of the receiver. 

However, although Denon’s receivers have come through multiple design changes over the last few years, they still look like receivers from 10 years ago. This is not a bad thing, because Denon has a simple and elegant design that will fit any living room. Therefore, on the front of the receiver, users will see four source shortcut buttons and many other functions. The traditional volume is now situated on the right, while the rest of the sources, including the knob to select, are placed on the left. The display is situated in the middle and there is also a blue LED that indicates the input and DTS or Dolby soundtracks.

Denon’s remote control is similar to the one of sister-company Marantz. This means that it comes with a simplified layout and it is user-friendly, offering colored buttons. Compared with many other remote controls that Denon has offered over the years, this one is a joy to use.
