    Tech With Jess: A indoor/outdoor BBQ from George Foreman

    Tech With Jess: A indoor/outdoor BBQ from George Foreman

    Newstalk Technology Correspondent Jess Kelly reviews the indoor/outdoor BBQ from George Foreman
    Review Notes
    This is a 'quick, efficient and clean alternative to a gas or charcoal BBQ', it acts as both a freestanding outdoor grill and an indoor grill, so you can use it all year round, regardless of the weather.
    It's a winner for those short on space too. And as it's an electric grill, it's ideal for apartments, patios, caravans and other areas where charcoal or propane can't be used. There won't be any need to mess about with gas cylinders or charcoal.

    Tech With Jess: A review of the Oppo Find X5 Pro

    Tech With Jess: A review of the Oppo Find X5 Pro

    Our Technology Correspondent Jess Kelly joined Pat this morning with a review of the Oppo Find X5 Pro and Jess also answered listeners' technology queries.
     Review Notes.
    Good: Overall, the quality of the Find X5 Pro is excellent, from its display to the camera to the performance. It is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip and can handle everyday tasks without breaking a sweat. 
     Not so good: If you are a fan of camera gimmicks, the Find X5 Pro is light on this front. Instead it focuses on delivering a decent performance in low light, which it more or less delivers on. 
     The rest: The phone comes with fast charging – 80 watt wired and 50 watt wireless charging – so you can power up and be on your way in a matter of minutes. 
     Verdict An admirable follow-up to the Find X3 Pro, even if it doesn’t make some of the big leaps of its predecessor.

    Tech With Jess: A review of the Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio

    Tech With Jess: A review of the Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio

    Newstalk Technology Correspondent Jess Kelly joined Pat this morning with a review of the Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio.
    Review Details:

    Windows 11
    Intel® Core™ i5-11300H Processor
    RAM: 16 GB / Storage: 256 GB SSD
    Quad HD touchscreen / 120 Hz
    Battery life: Up to 19 hours

    This is the latest in the Surface range that goes up against the Apple MacBook Pro.
    At first glance, this device is a laptop: it opens like a laptop and has a conventional keyboard. But if you reach for the top of the screen, grab it at either side and tilt it back, you'll quickly see why it's different.   
    If you pull the screen forward, it tents over the keyboard. There's another set of magnets here to hold it in place in what Microsoft calls 'Stage mode'.  This is an ideal position for watching videos, making presentations, or working with an external keyboard. 
    Pull the screen forward again and it folds down against the keyboard, into 'Studio mode'. Here you're working with it as if it was a tablet, with the screen at a slight angle.
    If you've been using Microsoft's Surface devices, you'll find the Surface Laptop Studio a pleasing upgrade.
