Well what are the chances? After two months of awe-inspiring Twenty20 cricket Down Under, two Melbourne-based teams have made the grand final of the 2019 Big Bash. It takes place today and we’ll tell you how to live stream Melbourne Stars vs Melbourne Renegades regardless of where you are in the world.
Which way the 2019 Big Bash final is going to go is anybody’s guess – the bookies can’t seem to split them either. Possibly very slight favourites are the Melbourne Stars, who have bounced back from finishing bottom of the pile last season. They pulled off a tightly fought win in the semi-finals thanks to a real captain’s innings from Glenn Maxwell. While opening all-rounder Marcus Stoinis will be a threat, smashing 312 runs at an average of 62.4 so far in the tournament.
Kane Richardson has been the Melbourne Renegades’ main man. With 19 scalps to his name, he’s the leading wicket taker in[……]
Traditionally the NBA All-Star game has been a matchup of the best players in the Eastern Conference versus the best from the Western Conference. However, last year it decided to make things a bit more interesting by switching how the teams are picked. Each conference now holds a vote to choose their team captain who then picks their teammates the same way it’s done on the playground.
The plan was a success and this year the league is sticking with this new format – and you’re in the right place to find out how to get an NBA All-Star game lve stream from absolutely anywhere.
The Western Conference has chosen – who else – LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers as its captain, while the Eastern Conference has chosen Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks. The captains held their draft on a televised event and now both teams are ready to face off this Sunday.
This will be LeB[……]

Just a week and a bit to go to the annual phone-fest that is Mobile World Congress, and the leaks keep coming thick and fest: like this render of the LG V50 ThinQ with Sprint branding and 5G capabilities, for example.
It’s courtesy of seasoned tipster Evan Blass, so it’s very likely that we’re looking at a genuine picture of the LG V50 ThinQ. Would something that looks like this be enough for you to think about skipping the LG G8 ThinQ for the next model up?

Both the LG V50 and the LG G8 are set to be launched on the MWC 2019 press day on February 24, so we don’t have long to wait to see both phones for ourselves – and we’ll be bringing you hands-on first impressions as soon as we can.

When it comes to safety, we hold machines and humans to very different standards. In 2016, there were 34,439 fatal road crashes in the US, but we regard driving alongside other humans as ‘safe enough’. Accidents are tragic, but they happen.
However, if roads were fully automated and there were 30,000 fatal accidents, would we be so understanding? Would we still call them ‘safe enough’ – and what does that mean?
To get a better understanding, we spoke to Chris Bessette, program manager for autonomous driving at Draper, and one of the world’s foremost experts on autonomy and LIDAR.
Draper is an engineering research laboratory that was originally part of MIT, but span off in the 1970s. It’s best known for its work in aerospace and undersea vehicles, but in the last few years it’s also begun working on safety for self-driving cars.
It’s not easy trying to keep track of the AirPods 2 rumors: first they’re said to be coming in the first half of 2019, then the next insider tip-off is late in 2019, and now a new report from China says the upgraded wireless earbuds could be here as soon as March.
Let’s hope the Economic Daily News is right and the AirPods 2 are only a month away, because we can’t take much more waiting. The outlet says supply chain sources point to an imminent launch – maybe at Apple’s rumored March event.
The new report also echoes something we’ve heard before, that Apple is going to add a new black color option as well as white, giving you double the choice. The price will remain the same at $159/£159 apparently.
- Apple hasn’t said much about the AirPods 2 so far
- Check out what we thought of the original AirPods
- Don’t forget that Apple makes computers too

Virtual reality is the technology of the moment. Since Oculus first appeared on the scene in 2012, the market has filled with VR headsets and visors on an immense – and perhaps unjustified – wave of hype.
Whether you’re looking to play VR video games, watch 360-degree documentaries, or just watch films really close up (for some reason), there are now a host of hardware options you can buy: the Oculus Go, HTC Vive, Samsung HMD Odyssey, and Google Daydream, to name but a few.
However, sales of headsets and other VR kit have yet to match the initial hype, and there are plenty of reasons for this: the high costs of developing new hardware, and issues around motion sickness and eye strain and the huge number of headsets now competing for space rightly making consumers wary.
- Price isn’t what’s holding back VR adoption, says Oculus founder

Oh Three, with this extraordinary SIM only deal you have really been spoiling us. Since this Black Friday special returned at the end of January we’ve been calling the network’s unlimited data, calls and texts for just £20 per month the best SIMO plan ever – and we really meant it.
But come Monday, it will be time to say a very sorry goodbye. In fairness, it was supposed to disappear from Three’s virtual shelves two weeks ago but was extended on until February 18. But we’re not expecting such munificence for a second time – we fully expect this weekend to be the last for the foreseeable future in which you’ll be able to get an all-you-can-eat SIM plan for a mere £20 per month.
There really is no catch to dodge here, simply the best SIM only deal you can get in the UK for big data. So if you’ve been thinking about a new SIMO and know that you’re going to need plenty of leeway fo[……]
The Windows 10 April 2019 Update will be the first major update for Microsoft’s constantly-evolving Windows 10 operating system this year.
Also known as Windows 10 version 1903, or 19H1, the Windows 10 April 2019 Update continues Microsoft’s habit of releasing major updates that bring new features, tools and apps to Windows 10.
The Windows 10 April 2019 Update follows the Windows 10 October 2018 Update and the Windows 10 April 2018 Update. Both of these updates brought a number of helpful new features to Windows 10, but they were also had their fair share of controversy and issues as well – but at least it looks like Paint will no longer be ‘deprecated’, if a recent insider build is anything to go by.
We’re hoping that the Windows 10 April 2019 Update will manage to arrive, as the name suggests, in April, avoiding some of the problems that plagued earlier updates. Ho[……]
The Google Pixelbook, even though its been out for more than a year, is easily one of the best Chromebooks out there. It’s a perfect example of what the Chromebook is capable of. We gave it a shining five star review for just that reason. And, more than a year later, it stands up, even in the face of the Google Pixel Slate. And, with Chrome OS updates that bring the likes of virtual desktops, it will continue to shine.
Still, in our minds, the ‘perfect product’ doesn’t exist – there’s always room for improvement. The Google Pixelbook is no exception to that rule. So, after using the Pixelbook daily for so long, we have crafted a wishlist of things we want to see in the follow-up.
Now that 2019 has officially arrived, we may be seeing a new Google Pixelbook 2 in the very near future. So, keep this page bookmarked, as we’ll keep it updated with all t[……]
