If you weren’t aware that the year is flying, let’s point it out for you. It’s already time for the April May 2023 issue of Stuff Magazine. If you’re marking your calendars with ferocious regularity, you’ll know that we’ve just entered the second quarter of the year.
And that can only mean one thing — smart homes. By which we mean, the current issue of Stuff (in stores now) will show you how to smarten up your home. It’s not quite a full-on ChatGPT conversion but it’ll do for now. Smarter speakers (yes, with AI in ’em), appliances, gadgets, cameras of all descriptions, all of which exist on your home network with the express purpose of making your life easier. Or, at the very least, your insurance claims extremely well-supported. Check out the April May 2023 issue if you’re looking to improve your home’s AI quotient.
It’s not just homes that are bulging with intellect in 2023. The average motor vehicle is doing the same. And electric vehicles… those are even smarter than the average. Page through the current issue of Stuff to check out the very best of electric cars in 2023. The majority are already available in the South African market and the outliers won’t be outside of your grasp for long. Make sure you’re informed before you’re subject to high-pressure sales techniques that probably don’t work on you but let’s just be sure anyway, yeah?
If you’re not looking to spend the equivalent of a couple of houses in a single shot, we’ve also got something a bit more affordable for your perusal. Stuff has tracked down a batch of budget laptops to suit all manner of pockets and use cases. You’ll see the word ‘Chromebook’ crop up a time or two but there’s also the odd budget headliner that may fly under your radar. That’s more because they don’t get the marketing spend of the bigger, sexier models, but don’t worry, little notebooks. We see you.
There’s always more to see in an issue of Stuff and the April May 2023 edition is no exception. We’ve got instant upgrades (for the Sony ZV-1F), a Sony PlayStation console retrospective, a how-to guide on making the most of Mastodon, and that’s just the educational stuff. Okay, fine, it’s all educational (shhh, don’t tell anyone). We’ve also tested Samsung’s Galaxy S23, the Sony PlayStation VR 2, some new Sennheiser kit, and a bunch more besides. Oh, yes, and Meta’s new Quest Pro headset. Frankly, you can’t afford not to pick up this issue. Find it online (direct from Stuff or other locations) or in stores today.
