It’s been a doozy of a week with more surprise announcements hitting the headlines than anyone expected. These included everything from a surprise Project Cars unveiling to the latest set of top-notch tellies from Philips finally going on sale.
Winner: Samsung shows Apple a thing or two about making laptops
Samsung laptops have never been bad. But in the past they’ve never had the wow factor of Apple MacBooks. This week that well and truly changed with the arrival of Samsung8217;s stellar new Galaxy Book S.
Powered by a choice of Qualcomm or Intel CPU chips the laptop is one of the swishest looking we’ve tested in quite some time.
It features one of the best screens you’ll find on a 13-inch laptop, stellar battery life, reliable LTE connectivity and a super sleek design that makes the MacBook Air look a little on the chunky side.
What’s more, it’s one of many new Samsung laptops and Ultrabooks set to arrive in the very near future. If the devices match the standard set by the Galaxy Book S, Samsung may be a surprise contender for 2020’s laptop of the year.
Given that the company announced it was quitting the laptop market in the UK altogether not too long ago this is a surprise turn of events no one expected and a move that earns Samsung a place as this week’s winner.

Loser: 5G conspiracists buy snake oil
5G conspiracy theorists have been making all manner of trouble recently. Doing ridiculous things like attacking the phone masts being used by emergency services during a pandemic lockdown.
But this week they got well and truly duped when it emerged chiselers are selling a bogus “5GBioShield” to protect them from the 8220;dangerous8221; new tech. Selling for a modest £339 a pop, the device is on paper very powerful and will offer concerned tin foil hat wearers “quantum holographic catalyser technology”. This apparently lets the stick “balance and harmonisation of the harmful effects of imbalanced electric radiation.”
