Our technology editor gives the verdict on the latest technology releases.
Google Chromebook Pixel 2
The new 13-inch Chromebook Pixel includes a Core i7 chip and up to 16GB of Ram. It also has a very high resolution screen and a new 'USB C' port, but will anyone spend €1,000 on a laptop that needs a constant web connection to work effectively?
Mophie Juice Pack for iPhone 6 Plus
Its 2,600mAh power adds an extra three-quarters charge to an iPhone. Sadly, despite all efforts at sleek design, it also adds noticeable heft to your phone.
The phone/camera hybrid has about three times the clarity of an iPhone because of its (much) bigger camera sensor. Despite this, Panasonic manages to keep the casing quite slim. The 'phamera' takes a sim card, makes calls and does every other smartphone things. For photo-enthusiasts, the appeal is obvious. For others, price will be an issue.
