Another cycle has been completed and it’s time for an all-new issue of Stuff. June-July 2023 promises to be a cold one and it’s all the colder because… well, you know why. We’ll get to that in a moment. First, it’s time for a brief look what Stuff is packing in this issue. As usual, there’s loads to see, much to learn, and plenty to lust over. We’ve tested some of the latest gear to issue forth from the tech industry, from the Sonos Era 300 to Huawei’s new smartwatch/earbuds hybrid. The latter is, perhaps surprisingly, rather slick.
Now it’s time to address the elephant in the coal shipment. Load shedding. It’s not going away, as we’re constantly being reminded by that Stage 6 notification that, unlike some CEOs, just won’t quit. But you don’t have to sit in the dark, just because Eskom seems to want you to. Stuff’s June-July 2023 issue features the gear and gadgets that, short of a complete solar/inverter overhaul of your home, will allow you to navigate the ‘Shed with minimal discomfort.
Another great gadget for getting through long periods where nobody’s really working (like meetings, but don’t tell that to your supervisor) is the not-so-humble smartphone. It’s been some time since we did a proper roundup of your best options across all of the price brackets. We’re sure you can see where this is going. In the event that you can’t, Stuff’s June-July 2023 issue contains a spectacular supertest of the smartphones lurking out in the market. Will you find your next upgrade here? Only one way to find out.
Tablets are only bigger smartphones that don’t make voice calls and take terrible photos. Right? Actually… there’s a bunch of specialist tablet hardware out there that translates into pretty nifty handheld gaming experiences. And since this is niche information, we’ve done the homework on the options you have at your disposal. Looking to clock up some record times, rack up online game wins, or just chill out for a while? Here are the tablets you should look at owning.
As ever, there is plenty more to see in this issue of Stuff. If you’re the proud owner of a Kindle Scribe and want it to be even better, that’s something we can help you with. Ditto if you’d like to explore the murky world of sideloading apps onto your various devices. We won’t ask where you got the .APKs from. We can also help with your image editing skills, offer advice on which new tech you should buy (and avoid), and provide an advance look at the tech heading your way at high speed. Get your copy of the June-July 2023 issues of Stuff at retail, at various online stores, or from Stuff directly. The choice is yours.
