Apple introduces 16-inch MacBook Pro

A solid update to a laptop that seemed to be loosing it's way. If the keyboard can stand up to scrutiny, it looks like it will be the go to for professionals on the move.

The Touch Bar looks much better sandwiched in-between a physical ESC key and the Touch ID button. Why the iSight camera is still 720p and they didn't opt for Face ID over (or to compliment) Touch ID, I don't know.

The base models are not cheap, but no 'Pro' products from Apple are. I couldn't justify splashing out on it at the moment, but when the time comes to update, this is the model to go for.

Price: £2,799+

Motorola resurrects the Razr as a foldable Android smartphone

I think this is the first sensible foldable phone and it looks great in the Razr form factor. The folding mechanism is clever and exactly how I would like a foldable iPad to work.

I was a Nokia fan, so never jumped on the Razr bandwagon, but even I can appreciate what a nice throwback this is.

5-hour workdays? 4-day workweeks? Yes, please

Hell, yes. Any time we get back for ourselves will hopefully make us all much happier. It's easy to get lost in your own world because our time is so limited.

Interestingly, in the example mentioned, social media was blocked and phones put away. I already leave checking most social networks to an early morning and late evening activity. I miss out on real time news, but it's not something I feel the need to get me through the day.

Implementing shorter working hours, universal income or both would be fantastic for us all.
