I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

It's been 10 years since the iPad launched. Wow. The latest generation gets a power update to the A12 Bionic processor. It still starts at $329 (£329, AU$499), preorders start now and it ships Friday.
The new iPad Air comes in colors like the rainbow, incorporates a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display and receives long-awaited updates, like Touch ID via the power button. It jumps to the new 5-nanometer A14 Bionic chip with six cores and a four-core GPU. It will ship in October starting at $599 (£579, AU$899).
