Notice anything different about Stuff.tv? Change happens fast in technology, and as the world evolves around us, we’ve tinkered with the DNA of our world to help make it a better place to hang out. We rather like it.
But what really matters is what you think. So come in, have a look around and, for good or bad, let us know. You can comment below or reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s a quick tour of what’s new.
1. We’ve done some pretty colouring in
What you’ll probably notice first are the gloriously big and gorgeous pictures, the elegant new font and the shimmering colour palette. We hope our new design makes Stuff’s bottomless pit of brilliant reviews and incredible videos even more beautiful to look at.
2. More Google Maps than Apple Maps
Some of you found the old site harder to find your way about than you’d have liked. Confession time: so did we. So we’ve taken the opportunity to simplify the structure, making navigating easier and more intuitive than ever, and ensuring you can always discover the stories you want to read.
3. Built for Galaxy S4. Built for HTC One. And Xperia Z. And iPad mini. And Nexus 10… and… and
Stuff.tv now responds to your every need. Whatever you’re reading us on – desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet – we’ve got an optimised version of the site for you. Reading this on your smart glasses? Welcome. Whatever device, wherever you are, you’ll find all the same great stuff.
4. More useful than ever
No time to read a giant review? Can’t be bothered? Click the ‘Jump to verdict’ link at the top and see our round-up of the best and worst features, our easy star rating and a quick verdict.
Then hop over to our world-famous Top 10s to see how it compares with the competition. They're now bang up to date and they've had a bit of a nip and tuck too.
5. Spammers out! Facebook in!
Many of you have been kind enough to get in touch and let us know what you’d like improved. And we’ve listened. Problems logging in? Not any more – just sign in with your Facebook account. Your valuable, relevant comment was cheapened by a neighbouring spammer? Relax, they’ve gone too.
6. Unique, distinctive, witty
We’ll also be moving our focus away from the horde of me-too tech sites. If you want to read hard drive reviews, there are dark recesses of the internet where you can find them. But we won’t be one of them, not unless it’s made by Stark Enterprises. Because if you want to know how to give yourself binary-enabled superpowers, you’ve come to the right place. And we promise you: it won’t be dull.
7. Stuff’s Holy Trinity: mag, app and Stuff.tv
Readers of Stuff magazine might have noticed our recent redesign. It’s the same beast, but with fresh blood pumping through its veins. And it remains the world’s biggest-selling gadget mag.
But our heart – the place to find the latest news first and the best features faster – is here on Stuff.tv. We really hope you like what you see.
So off you go. And don’t forget to tell us what you think. Here are some good places to start…
