For the purpose of this review, we used the Blue Mat Ceramic Bezel edition with a Blue rubber band that costs $1,700/1,450/AU$2,350. The core design of the Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45 is like a premium watch that youd probably spend far more money on than your average smartwatch. The 45 in the name refers to the watchs diameter. Its a chunky piece, measuring 13.7mm thick. That means its suited to larger wrists, but the sporty styling makes it look intentional, similar to a Garmin Fenix 3 . Its also waterproof, so you can take this in the water if you want, but we wouldnt recommend swimming with this device due to the weight. Its heavy at 62.5g, but the weight makes it feel premium. And it looks expensive too, as unlike the previous Tag Heuer Connected watch, this has a full metal case.

Kim Zolciak s young son is finally recuperating after his emergency surgery this weekend, RadarOnline.com has learned. Kash Biermann , 4, was bit by a dog on Saturday, and immediately rushed to the hospital. The mom of six cancelled her Watch What Happens Live appearance on Sunday to be by her child's side. The last 14 hrs of our lives has been a living nightmare, the reality star posted on Instagram. My sweet @kashbiermann was bit by a dog and had very traumatic injuries. I've never prayed so hard, or been so scared in my life. My husband, our daughters, Kj, Tracey, his nanny, Michael Beck and everyone close to us all pulled together and held each other up.

In An Internet Language Built Around Love For The Puppers , Jessica Boddy traces the emergence of dog-flavored memetalk on the Internet. Some dogs are doggos, some are puppers, and others may even be pupperinos. There are corgos and clouds, fluffers and floofs, woofers and boofers. The chunky ones are thicc, and the thin ones are long bois. When they stick out their tongues, they're doing a mlem, a blep, a blop. They bork. They boof. Once in a while they do each other a frighten. And whether they're 10/10 or 12/10, they're all h*ckin' good boys and girls. Are you picking up what I'm putting down? If not, you're probably not fluent in DoggoLingo, a language trend that's been gaining steam on the Internet in the past few years It's like the cats thing, but we do the talking instead of them. The key vectors seems to be Dogspotting , the biggest Facebook group for dog lovers, and Dog Rates on Twitter.

If you're looking for a web host which offers unlimited everything for the lowest price, Media Temple is going to be a disappointment. The company sells itself on quality, not price, and its shared hosting package looks very different to most of the competition. A chunky $20 (16) gets you only 20GB of storage space, for instance. And 1TB monthly bandwidth, with up to 1,000 email addresses spread across a maximum of 100 websites. This doesn't look good initially, but do you really need more? We'll bet that most personal and small business users won't get close. Keep in mind also that although other plans call themselves unlimited, that's a fiction. Check the small print and they'll all tell you they reserve the right to stop you using too many resources, they just won't tell you what those limits are.

While the new BMW 1 Series Sedan is something enthusiasts are bemoaning, for its switch to front-wheel drive architecture, it's actually quite an important car for the Chinese market. As China is the only place to get the 1 Series Sedan and BMW is growing increasingly popular there, the upcoming 1er will be a massive car for BMW's Chinese sales. It recently made its debut at the 2017 Shanghai Motor Show , showing of its compact size, classy interior for the price and fuel efficient engines. In Estoril Blue, it actually looks pretty good, if a bit chunky and bland. But as far as small, premium sedans go, it's about in line with the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class and Audi A3. It's not gorgeous but not bad, either. On the inside, the cabin looks very BMW, which is very good, as it gives buyers in a lesser market the ability to own a car with a more expensive feeling interior.

Jeep revealed an all-electric Wrangler concept in 2008, but we dont believe full electrification is part of the plans. Speaking to Auto Express earlier this year , Jeep boss Mike Manley said a fully electric powertrain would not be a great fit for future models. Image 3 of 3 Image 3 of 3Best hybrid cars on sale 2017 While the Yuntu concept previews a model for the Chinese market only, it could hint at the global design direction of all Jeep models. It’s still distinctly Jeep at the front with the trademark grille joined by modernised, thin headlights. Thin LED taillights are found at the back, and a chunky new D-pillar appears. Inside, the cabin is light and airy, making extensive use of pale wood. A huge digital display runs the length of the dashboard too. Jeep has said very little about when to expect the Yuntu to transition into a production model, but it’s unlikely that we’ll see it on sale here in the UK.

It's just as premium, with a full metal body and chamfered edges, but it's a bit more divisive. It's pretty but it's chunky and arguably lacks the iconic appeal of its predecessors. So whether through polish or going back to the drawing board we really hope the HTC 11 is a thing of undisputed beauty. 2. A great point-and-shoot camera The HTC 10 has a powerful camera with a lot of features, but when it comes to just snapping away the results just aren't as consistently strong as on rival phones like the Samsung Galaxy S7 . We'd wager that most people don't want to mess around with RAW format and pro mode, so it would be good if the HTC 11 doesn't just have a powerful camera, but one that's simple to use as well. Where you can point, shoot and be confident that more often than not what you've captured will be in focus and look good. 3. Better low light performance Speaking of the camera, while you can get good shots in some modes, the low light capabilities aren't special, particularly when dealing with movement.

“I wanted the bike to look different to those normally seen on the internet,” says Karl. “With a long and low appearancemean and dirty. And definitely no Harley engine.” “Christian has magic mechanical skills, and he’s a wonderful artist as well. He made just one very simple sketch on a little piece of paper in a bar, and the project started.” A 1980-spec Honda CB900 was lifted onto the bench. Soon, only the engine remained intact: Christian has kept the front downtubes and most of the top of the frame, but binned everything else. He’s increased the rake, and fitted shortened Suzuki GSX600 forks to keep the front end under control. LSL bars are home to chunky, one-off aluminum brake and clutch reservoirs, and a full suite of Motogadget components —including a speedo, turn signals and controls. The headlight is an aftermarket part with modern styling, and gives the Honda more character than a simple retro bowl would.

It’s no exaggeration to say this is the best smartphone display I’ve ever seen. Brian Heater, reporting for TechCrunch : I’ve been carrying the Galaxy S8+ around for a few days now, and it fits in my pocket every bit as comfortably as the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus. And you’re able to operate that phone with a single hand, so this device will be no problem. Steve Kovach, reporting for Business Insider : It’s an impressive feat of engineering. At 5.8 inches, the Galaxy S8’s screen is larger than the iPhone 7 Plus screen, but packed on a slimmer and more attractive body. The iPhone looks chunky and outdated by comparison. We’re getting closer and closer to the dream of having a phone that’s all display on the front. Lance Ulanoff, reporting for Mashable : A 6.2-inch smartphone sounds comically large. However, the Galaxy S8+ is unusually narrow, with a screen aspect ratio of 18.

It started me with my first training plan by just getting me to do a running test and asking which days I wanted to run - and it told me how far and fast I needed to run in real time. From there came the MiCoach SmartRun watch, which packed the app into a fashionable wrist-piece with a clear and colorful touchscreen, as well as music playback. It remains one of my favorite pieces of technology today. I had running workouts, a Spotify rival and strength training in one place. The watch was a bit chunky, but I knew the next model or two would be sleeker and more powerful. But Adidas never created another watch like it, bought the Runtastic running platform and is shutting down its MiCoach app. Its annoying because its the perfect app to get people running, working out their pace and giving them real, sustainable training plans to follow.

Get the wedges away from me the only shoes I want to wear this spring are children's dress shoes. Yes, the ones you see at Payless, et al during Easter season. Unfortunately, this is not a goal I can achieve. I did not appropriately revel in wearing these chunky, low-heeled, white Mary Janes when I was an actual child. Now, it is too late for me and my size 9s. Kids' shoes simply will not fit, no matter how much I want to wear them. SEE ALSO: Here's why your shoelaces annoyingly come undone But if you have been blessed with feet that fit a women's size 8-ish or below, you can achieve my dream for me. (And, please, do not suggest that I wear "adult versions" of these shoes. They are not the same.) Read more... More about Fashion , Watercooler , and Watercooler

As for other watches I've tried, the Suunto Spartan Sport Wrist HR is a chunky number thats got a big screen and decent battery life - but its pretty massive and doesnt offer much customisation. It does have one of the best wrist heart rate monitors Ive ever tried though. Id urge any runner looking for a budget option to try the TomTom Spark 3 - its a steal these days and can do so much - including playback music through wireless headphones. Its a little on the simplistic side, but its always the one I recommend checking out if youre thinking of getting started in running watches. I enjoyed my time with the Polar M400 - a little on the chunky side, but the Polar Flow app is good and has smart features too. It also offers some nice fitness tracking abilities for a lower price.

Instead what we got was a designed-by-commitee cynical air-guitar performing 'cool dude' who would pootzle around game worlds covered in Chupa Chups. Back in the days before shader technology and 3d polygons, graphics pervs would have to get their cheapies waxing lyrical about the smoothness of screen switching and parallax scrolling. Maybe that's what the devs spent the Chupa Chups money on. Either way, don't we all need a sai-weilding ninja ant in our lives? Hello? Back in the days when one man could bash away in assembly language over a matter of a fortnight and come up with a clunky, chunky platformer about a poor chap who's had his alarm clock stolen by a horrid ghost, Gregory Loses His Clock was stupid in all the best ways. That was the weird thing about the 8-bit era in Britain, games were almost encouraged to be a little subversive, a little satirical, and they'd habitually be set within the confines of one house.

The top-of-the-range GoGeek plan 8 ($10) a month initially, a chunky 20 ($25) a month on renewal gets you faster hosting on sites with fewer users, free PCI compliance, WordPress and Joomla staging (creating a copy of a site for testing), one-click Git Repo creation and more. The SiteGround site has links to many other app hosting plans, including WordPress, Joomla, PrestaShop and WooCommerce. These don't have the extras you'll get with some other companies, though curated add-ons, custom themes and are really just the regular shared hosting plans, at the same prices, with a slight change of emphasis on the features (they'll transfer a site for free). The product range extends up to a range of dedicated hosting plans. These seem expensive to us, starting at 147 ($180) a month for 500GB storage and 5TB bandwidth, but the ability to choose a US, European or Asia-Pacific data centre could make this a more interesting proposition for some.

It’s not the smaller brother of Tiguan , it’s more a derivative of the Golf. It has its own design and own spirit.” That all may be so, but in size and scale, the T-Roc is very similar to Audi ’s new Q2 , with squared off wheel arches, chunky shoulder line and signature C-pillar. In fact Welsch went so far as to admit that it uses the same platform and wheelbase as the Audi Q2, but with no common parts on the upper body. • Best crossovers on sale right now So it’s based on the venerable and adaptable MQB platform with all the tech-sharing benefits that brings. And it’s no surprise that it feels very similar to the Audi Q2 from behind the wheel. Image 6 of 10 Image 6 of 10 As with the other cars we drove in South Africa, the T-Roc was a very early prototype, but it still felt good. Our car was powered by the new 1.5-litre, 148bhp four-cylinder engine that debuted in the recently updated Golf.

When you crank it up to high levels it even warns you that it might strain your eyes! It's a 6.2in Super AMOLED setup with a 2960 x 1440 pixel resolution at 529ppi and with a 18:5.9 wide aspect ratio. Sharpness can be difficult to discern with Samsung’s bubbly new UI, but get a bit of chunky, angular text on screen and you can see that there’s zero artifacting or jaggedness here, it’s smooth, sharp, and clear even when held close to your face. It should work well with VR headsets. Samsung Galaxy S8+: Hardware Software Performance wise I havent had a chance to put the Galaxy S8+ through any kind of demanding testing. All I can say is that skipping around the menus and UI, and loading apps, is fast, smooth, and breezy with absolutely no stuttering whatsoever, so it’s looking suitably refined, optimised, and powerful. The new UI, in terms of my immediate feeling of it, is a bit of a mixed bag for me.
