Turbo trainers vs exercise bikes – what’s best for you?

Indoor cycling has come a long way since the first days when riders mounted their bikes on unstable rollers and stared at the wall for hours during training. Nowadays, smart turbo trainers and connected exercise bikes provide a more enjoyable indoor cycling experience – albeit they are very different from each other. Which one should you get?

Indoor cycling isn’t just a replacement for going outside, but it has several distinct training advantages over going out onto the open road. First, it is more efficient as opposed to getting in and out of traffic; and secondly, an hour on a turbo or smart bike always provides a full hour of structured training.

The packaging for the Intel Core i9-13900K processor has leaked, and while the spilled photo shows it has the same theme as the existing 12900K – including this waffle – there are some minor but nonetheless interesting changes.

What Makes Noise Canceling on the AirPods Pro 2 so good? One billion transistors

By placing the new Apple AirPods Pro 2 headphones that Apple unveiled at the Far Out event on September 7 in my ears in the Steve Jobs Theater hands-on space, I wanted to experience what Apple promised would be a 2x better active noise canceling experience. Even in this bustling space, I was surprised at their effectiveness, which is mainly due to the new Apple H2 chip.

Apple’s silicon, which some say started with the iPhone and its specially designed A-series chips, has spread across a range of devices, including Macs and tablets with M-series processors – but the H2 predecessor that appeared on the original Pros AirPods in H1 chip form, in fact predates the Apple Silicon concept (similar to the original A series).

I bought a refurbished iPad Pro – and probably won’t buy a new gadget again

In my time at TechRadar I made sure I was a master of used products; buying your favorite gadgets is a great way to save money and the environment in one go. But since all the gadgets I use are maintenance loans, I didn’t really have to buy any technology for four years.
