I came all this way for a Bluetooth speaker? </strong><br />Bravo! That&rsquo;s the wireless speaker ennui that we&rsquo;ve been drumming into you; the ubiquity antipathy generator. But override it, for this delicious block of British designed boombox is not only too good to be sampled by cynical shell-likes, but also represents a pervasive concept in high-tech home audio.</p> <p><strong>Ooh, a concept. What is it? </strong><br />Surround sound.</p> <p><strong>Uh, are you having a breakdown? </strong><br />No, really. For &pound;500, for that is what this Mission Aero costs, you could buy a decent amp and stereo speaker set-up, but that would be conventional hi-fi and as such it would have a &lsquo;sweet spot&rsquo; for listening. In front of the speakers, almost certainly, but the angle of the speakers and their proximity to walls or furniture would all have an impact on how much you enjoyed them.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Not so for this, then? </strong><br />Not so, quite so.&nbsp;The Aero is designed to fill a room with balanced sound, regardless of whether you place it high or low, atop table or shelf. It has six drivers, each driven by its own digital amp and a downward-firing 120mm bass thumper. Its fidelity is ensured (and its cost largely justified) by its solid construction. It weighs a steady 7kg &ndash; the same as 40 Terry&rsquo;s Chocolate Oranges &ndash; and is made of cool, strokable curved aluminium.</p> <p><strong>Enough talking. What are we listening to?</strong><br />Whatever we like, my dear. AirPlay and Apt-X Bluetooth are on-board, and it&rsquo;ll act as a DLNA streamer too. The Aero will play from and charge whatever you plug into its rear-mounted USB port and while you&rsquo;re there you might want to consider its optical digital connection, from which it&rsquo;ll accept up to 24-bit/192kHz high-res audio. There&rsquo;s a natty remote control, too, which you&rsquo;ll be able to fondle if you make your way down to <a href="http://www.selfridges.com/en/mission-aero-bluetooth-wireless-speaker_761-10044-MISAEROSILVER/" target="_blank">Selfridges</a>&nbsp;&ndash; the London retailer currently has exclusive dibs.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:</strong> <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/13-hottest-gadgets-september-2014/feature" target="_blank">September&#39;s hottest gadgets revealed</a></p> <p><iframe frameborder="0" height="180" src="http://pages.haymarket.com/stuff_signup/enews_embed" width="300"></iframe></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Not available in X-ray" alt="Mission Aero" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/1_5.jpg?1412092305" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="It&#039;s British, so definitely &#039;aluminium&#039;" alt="Mission Aero" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/2_11.jpg?1412092305" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" title="High-res audio goes in here" alt="Mission Aero" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/3_14.jpg?1412092305" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/mission-aero-cares-not-where-you-sit/news#comments Bluetooth Speakers Hot Stuff Tue, 30 Sep 2014 12:09:54 +0000 Fraser Macdonald 1448931 at http://www.stuff.tv The 13 Hottest Gadgets of September 2014 http://www.stuff.tv/13-hottest-gadgets-september-2014/feature <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Scorchio!

Sometimes, within the confines of relatively featureless black boxes, life-changing functionality can be found. In this case, the removal of some of those pesky HDMI cables that are snaking around your house, tripping up the maid and chewed by the dog. Previously available only in Europe but now wired up British-style, the WHD200 forms an up-to-20m wireless link between the end of two HDMI cables.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Twenty metres!

However, the higher frequency makes the signal less capable of travelling through walls and windows. Less clever.

You wanna get a GoPro, mate. Kevin Block uses GoPro.&rdquo; It&rsquo;s so boring when decent product design meets popular consensus and before you know it, people are word-of-mouthing all over the shop and, boom, everybody&rsquo;s got a GoPro. And no other action camera can get a look in. Not even Contour, which used to be popular then disappeared off the market and now is back. Look at the iPhone, for example.</p> <p><strong>What about the iPhone?</strong><br />Well, it&rsquo;s quite good, isn&rsquo;t it? It works quite well and it&rsquo;s well-made and it&rsquo;s fashionable, so everyone buys it, and the whole thing is an Ouroboros tail-chomping snake of self-congratulatory iPhone buying and enjoying. And it makes us sick, frankly.</p> <p><strong>You&rsquo;re saying, if something&rsquo;s good then we shouldn&rsquo;t buy it?</strong><br />Yes! Well, no. At least consider some alternatives. Like this Contour Roam3. It&rsquo;s different, because instead of the GoPro&rsquo;s unaerodynamic flat profile, it&rsquo;s barrel shaped. Like the barrel of a gun. Which means that instead of looking like a Teletubby, you can mount the Contour on the side of your helmet and look like a future soldier or a Predator or something.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>I quite like the GoPro chest mount actually. </strong><br />You quite like being obtuse is what you quite like. And before you start rabbiting on about your 3D-printed narwhal mounts or whatever, you should know that the Contour has a standard tripod mount in addition to the slidey slots, so there&rsquo;s lots of mounts and accessories you can find for it. Its lens twists round 270-degrees, for even more flexibility. But do you know what you won&rsquo;t find on the Roam3?</p> <p><strong>OK, what won&rsquo;t you find on the Roam3? </strong><br />A huge pricetag! It&rsquo;s just &pound;190 from contourshop.com, and that gets you 1080p/30fps video, a laser level and 10m waterproofness without an extra case. Match that, GoPro lover.</p> <p><strong>Um, the 1080/30 GoPro Hero3 White Edition is &pound;200 with its waterproof housing. And it has Wi-Fi. </strong><br />Ah, dammit. The Contour doesn&rsquo;t have wireless, or an app. And you know why GoPro can up the specs for not much money? Because people like you keep buying GoPros, so GoPros get cheap because there are so many GoPros being bought! Sickening. Now, have you seen this?

B&amp;O&rsquo;s involvement adds some audiophile cachet &ndash;&nbsp;though dedicated vinyl-botherers will doubtless grumble about &quot;paying for design&quot;. Vertu used their own design team (B&amp;O only collaborated on the audio), but these do look&nbsp;really, really nice.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>So, not like Vertu&rsquo;s phones then?</strong><br />Well, we&rsquo;d rather be seen wearing these than waltzing around town talking on a Vertu Constellation wrapped in&nbsp;blue lizard skin. There&rsquo;s aircraft-grade aluminium and lamb&#39;s leather in the band, while the cups are made from a comfortable memory foam covered in soft, hand-stitched lamb&rsquo;s leather. They&rsquo;re a lot more understated and stylish than some of Vertu&#39;s previous handsets, in other words. And they&rsquo;re made in England, so you&rsquo;d be supporting local business by buying them over some cheaper cans made in, say, Shenzhen.</p> <p><strong>They do look a bit bulky, though</strong><br />They&rsquo;re actually surprisingly light: just 230g. And they come in a lovely quilted magnetic carrying pouch, so you can put them in your bag without having to worry about a stray set of keys scratching them up.</p> <p><strong>Are they phone compatible?</strong><br />Of course, Vertu being first and foremost a phone manufacturer. Two cables are supplied &ndash; you can choose between audio only or audio with volume controls and in-line microphone.</p> <p><strong>And is there a button on the cable that calls a concierge for me?</strong><br />Now you&rsquo;re just being daft. If you fancy shelling out for a pair, you can buy them from a Vertu boutique (find your nearest one <a href="http://www.vertu.com/en/contact-a-boutique" target="_blank">here</a>).</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Two kinds of leather and aircraft-grade aluminium?

They even smell pricey, too; like a leather armchair or the interior of a sports car. Pop them on your head and they have a satisfyingly weighty feel; the memory foam cushions are comfy and block outside noise effectively, though the band is quite tricky to adjust when they&#39;re on your head.</p> <p>But how do they sound? Perfectly good, actually. Noise isolation is effective, the bass is punchy&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;but not overwhelming&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;and there&#39;s plenty of crisp detail in the mid-range. There is a catch, though; they don&#39;t sound &pound;200 better than premium on-ears from other manufacturers like B&amp;O. Sure, you&#39;re probably not looking at these for audio quality alone; and the build quality of the cans is certainly impressive. Though the flimsy-feeling plastic 3-button remote lets the side down, rather; if you&#39;re not planning to use it for calls, probably best to pop off the magnetic ear cushion and swap it out for a standard cable.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-box-out-byline"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/stephen-graves" title="View user profile.">Stephen Graves</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/vertu/vertu-breaks-new-ground-hp-1v-headphones/news#comments Headphones Hot Stuff Vertu Mon, 22 Sep 2014 09:34:16 +0000 Sam Kieldsen 1448087 at http://www.stuff.tv The new Mazda MX-5 is the affordable Jag F-Type we've all been waiting for http://www.stuff.tv/new-mazda-mx-5-affordable-jag-f-type-weve-all-been-waiting/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Sleek styling and tempting price tag means the new MX-5 could be the ultimate sports car steal </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Mini F-Type anyone?" alt="Mini F-Type anyone?" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/MazdaMX5Main.jpg?1411301608" /> </div> </div> </div> <p><strong>Did someone put a Jaguar F-Type on a hot wash?</strong></p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/leonpoultney" title="View user profile.">Leon Poultney</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>That&#39;s a shame.

The newest model might feature a slight power hike over it predecessor, say around 160bhp in the most potent models, but don&#39;t expect it to set your pants on fire in terms of all-out speed and acceleration. It will drift around corners nicely, though.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Any neat gadgets inside?</strong><br />There isn&#39;t much information on its tech particulars&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;but we do know the interior steals many bits from the current generation Mazda 3. That means the slick floating infotainment system with &#39;click-wheel&#39; controls will likely feature; we&#39;re hoping it packs a few other neat gizmos, such as smartphone tethering and driver-focussed apps.

Oh hell yeah, baby!</strong><br />Calm down for a second. Yes, this is a new M series camera, but it&rsquo;s not just any old M series camera: it&rsquo;s a special limited edition model released to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first true M, the Leica M3. Its name? The Leica M Edition 60, appropriately enough.</p> <p><strong>So is this digital or film-based?</strong><br />It&rsquo;s a digital camera, but not as we know it. For starters, there&rsquo;s no screen, so y&ndash;</p> <p><strong>What?! No screen?</strong><br />Correct. Leica describes the M Edition 60 as &ldquo;the first digital camera to concentrate exclusively on the bare functions required for digital photography&rdquo; &ndash; shutter speed, aperture, ISO and focus. So on the back there&rsquo;s no screen, but rather an ISO dial to change sensitivity.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>How do I frame my shots?</strong><br />Through the viewfinder, silly.

Thrilling. </strong><br />Don&#39;t carp on; this is far more than your goldfish bowl from the local fair. <a href="http://myvegua.com/" target="_blank">Vegua</a> is an aquaponics food production system that&#39;ll produce eco-friendly veggies right in your home.</p> <p><strong>What&#39;s aquaponics when it&#39;s at home? And where do the fish come into it? </strong><br />Simply put, it&#39;s a combination of hydroponics &ndash; growing plants in water &ndash; and aquaculture &ndash; raising aquatic animals in tanks. You feed the fish; the fish waste is converted into nitrates by bacteria; the nitrates provide nutrients for the plants. And the plants filter the water, keeping the fish happy!</p> <p><strong>Sounds fishy to me&hellip; </strong><br />Aquaponics has been used since ancient times &ndash; the Aztecs practiced it, when they weren&#39;t busy ripping the still-beating hearts out of their vanquished foes. Nowadays it&#39;s used for commercial cultivation &ndash; of both fish and vegetables. Vegua&#39;s a smaller-scale version, designed to produce herbs and veg in your home. &quot;Small&quot; is relative, mind; it&#39;s quite hefty, at&nbsp;54 cm x 36 cm x 43 cm.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Why would I want a fish tank instead of a potted plant? </strong><br />Aside from the fact that it looks rather lovely? Vegua claims that it&#39;ll produce food twice as fast as conventional growing methods and at higher density, and it isn&#39;t affected by soil pests (since there&#39;s no soil, obviously; the plants sit in clay pebbles instead). And according to Vegua, it uses 66 per cent less energy than conventional gardening, and 90 per cent less water &ndash; so it&#39;s eco-friendly, too.</p> <p><strong>Won&#39;t it require lots of care? </strong><br />No more than a regular fish tank; indeed, since the plants act as a filtration system, once you&#39;ve cycled the system you don&#39;t have to faff about changing the water. We would suggest, though, that you don&#39;t go for the strictly minimalist look seen in Vegua&#39;s promo shots. It may look nice against your Scandinavian interior, but goldfish get stressed without somewhere to hide &ndash; so pop some plants <em>in</em> the aquarium, too.</p> <p><strong>Okay, I&#39;m sold: how much? </strong><br />You&#39;ll have to wait a bit; Vegua is launching on Kickstarter in October. Pricing details have yet to be revealed, though we&#39;re told that &quot;it will not be a cheap product.&quot;&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/niwa-helps-you-cultivate-veggies-home-using-your-smartphone/news" target="_blank">Niwa will let you grow your own at home &ndash; using your smartphone</a></strong></p> <p><iframe frameborder="0" height="180" src="http://pages.haymarket.com/stuff_signup/enews_embed" width="300"></iframe></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Vegua" alt="Vegua" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/vegua-02.jpg?1410634531" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Sofa, so good" alt="Sofa, so good" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/vegua-03.jpg?1410634531" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-carousel-item"><legend>Carousel Extras</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-title"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Vegua aquarium feeds you and your fish </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/growing-swimmingly-aquarium-feeds-your-fish-and-you/news#comments Hot Stuff Thu, 11 Sep 2014 14:44:31 +0000 Stephen Graves 1447325 at http://www.stuff.tv Jaguar's new XE picks a fight with the Germans http://www.stuff.tv/jaguar/jaguars-new-xe-picks-fight-germans/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Luxury British marque unveils handsome BMW 3-Series adversary at glitzy London bash </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Jaguar&#039;s new XE takes on BMW and Audi" alt="Jaguar XE" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/JaguarMain.jpg?1410452930" /> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Didn&#39;t I see the XE dangling from a helicopter in the skies above London the other day?</strong><br />You probably did&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;because Jaguar pulled out all the stops at a glittery London bash to ensure everyone on this green earth knew that the British marque was launching an all-new model.

That&rsquo;s for the base plastic model, but there&rsquo;ll be an anodised aluminium one too, and that&rsquo;ll be a bit pricier (exactly how much, we don&rsquo;t yet know).</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://myopenmix.com/#/" target="_blank">Openmix</a> via <a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1820945974/openmix-the-worlds-smallest-audio-mixer" target="_blank">Kickstarter</a>]</p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/hot-stuff">MIX MORE HOT STUFF INTO YOUR LIFE</a></strong></p> <p><iframe frameborder="0" height="180" src="http://pages.haymarket.com/stuff_signup/enews_embed" width="300"></iframe></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="It&#039;s cheap, it&#039;s small, and it&#039;s coming in January 2015" alt="It&#039;s cheap, it&#039;s small, and it&#039;s coming in January 2015" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/openmix-3.jpg?1409707082" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> Hot Stuff iPod and MP3 Music Tue, 02 Sep 2014 11:52:07 +0000 Sam Kieldsen 1446279 at http://www.stuff.tv Alienware's new Area-51: a triangle of sheer gaming power http://www.stuff.tv/alienware/alienwares-new-area-51-triangle-sheer-gaming-power/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The Triad chassis: coming to bring eye-gouging 4K graphics to a spare bedroom near you </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Alienware&#039;s new Area-51: a triangle of sheer gaming power" alt="Alienware&#039;s new Area-51: a triangle of sheer gaming power" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/alienware-area-51-main.jpg?1409756857" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/sam-kieldsen" title="View user profile.">Sam Kieldsen</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>WTF is that?</strong><br />It&rsquo;s Alienware&rsquo;s next Area-51 desktop PC &ndash; the fourth incarnation of what many view as the ultimate pre-built gaming computer.</p> <p><strong>It looks like a nerd&rsquo;s wet dream</strong><br />Now now, don&rsquo;t stereotype.
