The telephone rings. It’s Mum. Good news! She’s just won a modest sum on the pools and she wants to splash the cash. First on her purchase list is a new TV. “I want one of those new-fangled tellys where you don’t need to get up and down to change the channel.

RELIVING THE TECH OF FUTURE’S PAST: EXHIBITION

August 1st, 2014 by LG Blog UKLG Blog UK
 
How would you go about showcasing the entire digital age in 14 rooms? Where would you start? It’s a challenge that the Barbican Centre in London took on in 2012. Earlier this month the Digital Revolution exhibition doors finally opened. It’s a busy tour of all things tech without being too the domain of the geek – an interactive way of saying: “My word, look what’s been created.” The exhibition starts with early computers and arcade games from the 1970s and they are not all behind glass. Pac-Man, Super Mario, Tetris and Game Boys are all there and you can use...

WHY YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO… NORTHERN SOUL

July 28th, 2014 by LG Blog UKLG Blog UK
 

“A genre built on failures” is as good a way as any to describe it. What came to be called ‘Northern soul’ came, fundamentally, from literally hundreds of artistes and record companies who saw the way the dance-floors of the mid-60s were in thrall to the soul/rhythm’n’blues sounds of the USA generally and to Detroit’s Motown Records in particular. They saw the sales, the exposure and the money, and they heard the tunes. And they fancied a piece of the action. Imitation, of course, is the runty relative of inspiration, and the majority of these (initially Motown-aping) recordings suffered from...

WHY YOU NEED AN ULTRA HD 4K TV THIS SUMMER

July 24th, 2014 by LG Blog UKLG Blog UK
 
Ah the great British summer… The smell of suncream, heatwaves and downpours, the sight of normally calm people becoming human windmills at the first sign of a wasp and, most importantly, where a nation’s sporting hopes and dreams swing from oblivion to reality in a few brief moments. We’re already halfway through the summer. Wimbledon has been and gone, the World Cup is packing up and heading for Russia, and the Tour de France is already underway – but there’s still a lot left to watch, and there is no better way to watch sport than on an ULTRA HD...

WHY HIGH-RESOLUTION MUSIC IS AWESOME!

July 21st, 2014 by LG Blog UKLG Blog UK
 
Stop kidding yourself that your MP3-based music is good enough. It’s not. It’s fragmented and lightweight. It’s like spending half the film in the loo, only eating the bread of the sandwich, only reading every other page of the book. Andrew Everard explains just what high-res audio is and why we are all missing out… Imagine everything in your life was made at the beginning of the 1980s, but still on sale today: you’d be talking on a mobile phone weighing the better part of a kilo and good for just an hour of use between charges; discovering computing with a...

THE SIX BEST FILMS TO WATCH ON YOUR SMARTPHONE

July 19th, 2014 by LG Blog UKLG Blog UK
 
We’ve all taken to watching more films and TV shows on our smartphones. No one’s going to argue that you’re getting a better viewing experience on a phone than in an IMAX cinema – and you’d be a mug to watch Gravity on a 5.5in screen – but some films lend themselves to the small screen – because of either cinematography, sound or even their narrative structure. Stuff‘s Stephen Graves picks six… Cloverfield A giant monster terrorises New York, King Kong-style – but where previous monster movies gave us a birds-eye view of the action, director Matt Reeves places us on the...

GET THE BEST PICTURE FROM YOUR TV: HOW TO CALIBRATE

July 9th, 2014 by LG Blog UKLG Blog UK
 
When you first set up a new TV, you might’ve noticed that it asks you if you’re using it at home, or in a shop. You choose ‘home’, of course. Unless you live in Dixons. If you do live in Dixons, and you choose the ‘shop’ setting, you’ll be met with a hyper-caffeinated picture. The brightness and contrast will be whacked all the way up, the colour will be overblown and all the motion modes will probably turned up to 11. The reason? To attract attention among all the other televisions while punters are browsing. The default ‘home’ settings are...
