And, just to make sure you’re not late for tea after a long day’s shutterbugging, we’ve picked a selection of gadgets for the modern kitchen. Put that electric kettle to use - make a cup of tea or instant noodles to take care of hunger pangs, steam cookers for a quick meal, even an outdoor grill for a BBQ party with the pals.

As Dyson gears up to enter the Indian market, we accepted an invite to visit the facility in Malmesbury, England to be awed by the amount of dust these Dyson suckers are capable of cleaning up. From the manufacturing facility, R&D, even their breathtakingly beautiful campus (especially the cafeteria that serves meals prepared by Michelin starred chefs) blew us away.

Down at the testing facility this month, we’ve been getting down to it with the iPad 10.5 Pro, HTC’s squeezable handset, Nokia 3310, and HP’s Omen laptops – we’ve had our hands full this month. Wanna take a break from all the reading? We’ve lined up a few games too for your entertainment.

That’s not to mention the usual Hot Stuff, competitions and our famous Top Tens, which now come filled with more useful tips and tricks than ever before. Don’t forget, loads of this stuff can only be found by buying a copy of the mag, which you can pick up from both physical and digital newsstands right now.
