Stuff Cool List 2012 issue is out now!

Our annual rundown of the most awesome things in the world right now, augmented by the Galaxy S III, Retina Display MacBook Pro and much more

For many members of the Stuff team, the Cool List issue is the most exciting of the year. The gadgets, apps, people, games and objects of intrigue we've chosen for this annual list are the result of weeks of research and debate, and we reckon they're a pretty good gauge of what's happening in technology and geek culture right now.

You can get the list at, but if you want the story in more depth, it's all in the August issue, out now.

Other unmissable features include a four-way group test of the most powerful smartphones in the world (yes, including the Samsung Galaxy S III), a supertest of the best compact system cameras money can buy and an in-depth look at the £26 Raspberry Pi hack-puter. Plus there's the lowdown on iOS 6 and the staggeringly beautiful Retina Display MacBook Pro.

All that, and the mag features our first ever illustrated cover - Brandon Generator, as penned by the brilliant Tommy Lee Edwards. In short, your life will be much, much better with this magazine in it.
