        After Hubble: The James Webb Space Telescope nears launch The 18-segment JWST mirror assembled for the first time

        Well, it’s still two years away, but engineers have now finished assembling the optical components of the giant telescope that will build on the work of Hubble and be launched on a European Ariane rocket from French Guiana in two years time. Its mirror alone is fascinating.

          Windows vs macOS: Does it even matter anymore? Windows and Mac OSX operating systems

          As computer operating systems become increasingly invisible, the differences between the platforms dwindle, easing the user's jump from one to the other.

            Why Moore’s Law will continue - and will have little to do with silicon We are bumping up against the physical barriers of Moore's Law

            Just because we are butting up against the physical limits of Moore’s Law, that doesn’t mean that we’re going to see a decline in the ever-increasing speed of computing.

              How do you pick the best GPU for HDR post and preparation? [sponsored] One of these will help you power the Tone Mapping you need.

              If you want to be throwing enough information per pixel around a screen to fill an HDR colour space you need the processing power of a GPU, and AMD's gaming heritage helps its GPUs do just that.

                Doom comes to the Mac... but not quite how you might expect! The HUD display works slightly better

                Repurposing the use of CPU power found in everyday appliances to run Doom is nothing new - we've already had Doom on a Canon Pixma printer, for instance. But a new demo shows just how versatile the Touch Bar in the recently released MacBook Pro is.

                  Whatever happened to the flash revolution? A Raid array is still at the centre of most facilities

                  While flash media is an increasingly ubiquitous storage solution for consumer devices, thanks to its ability to stay ahead in terms of the space-to-money ratio much of video production still relies on metal spinning disks.

                    A recent demonstration of the Macbook Pro exhibited the laptop playing multiple simultaneous 4K streams, which is an impressive lot of horsepower in a portable device.
