Display specialist AOC extends the range of its Style line displays with two new models, which are a feast for the eye even when turned off: the nearly borderless design of the AOC I2481FXH (23.8″ / 60.5 cm) and AOC I2781FH (27″ / 68.6 cm) combined with a unique asymmetric metal stand make them stand out from the crowd. But they really come into their own when switched on: their IPS panels ensure highest-grade colour fidelity, sharp contrasts and stunning details for simply brilliant images.
Unique, premium stylish design The 23.8″ (60.5 cm) AOC I2481FXH and the 27″ (68.6 cm) AOC I2781FH make a bold design statement with their asymmetric metal stands, a feature unique to these AOC monitors. To add to their good looks, both feature ultra slim, nearly borderless frames: the bezel of the 23.8″ AOC I2481FXH is a mere 7.5 mm wide, whereas the 27″ I2781FH model’s is just 9.9 mm slim. This way, they are an appealing addition to any style-conscious user’s desktop. Brilliant images, wide viewing angles The two monitors impress even more when turned on: thanks to their IPS panels with the Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, users enjoy not just wide viewing angles of 178° but also brilliant images with highest-grade colour fidelity, impressive contrast and stunning detail. AOC’s Flicker FREE Technology regulates brightness without flickering to ensure a zero-flickering viewing experience with reduced eye strain even during longer periods in front of the monitor.
Versatile and practical Thanks to two HDMI connectors and one VGA socket, both monitors can easily be connected to various devices including DVD players, game consoles or whatever fits the user’s lifestyle best. For comfortable listening without disturbing others, users can plug in their earphones right into the display’s headphone jack.
The AOC I2481FXH will be available October 2015; the AOC I2781FH will follow in December. Their MSRPs will be £139 and £199 respectively. As with all of its displays, AOC offers a 3-year warranty with on-site exchange service.

It is no secret that the gorgeous metal rose gold is taking the world by storm at the moment, especially in the fashion and audio world. We’ve seen it on the catwalks, Apple have chosen it as one of their limited edition colours, and people all around the world are choosing the precious metal for their wedding rings.
The rose gold trend has even extended to audio accessories, which means that you will be able to bring in hints of rose gold both into your outfits and into your home without going too overboard. There is no quicker way to kill a trend than to use it too much, and we love rose gold specifically because it doesn’t overpower everything else that you are wearing.
Here are the three top rose gold audio products that we are totally in love with right now:
This is the KitSoundBoombar 2 in rose gold, an incredible speaker that has 10 Watts of power and up to ten hours of play time. You can either connect your device with the 3.5 mm cable or Bluetooth, and you can even use it as your hands free if you receive a call. This speaker looks fantastic in your home, and we love it.
Sometimes less is more, and that is definitely proved by the KitSoundManhattan Headphones in rose gold. The delicate inclusion of the metal means that the headphones are never going to scream at anyone – instead, they are all about class and elegance. They are also packed with fabulous audio technology, with eighteen hours of play time and Bluetooth connectivity so you are not all tangled up with wires.
Last but by no means least we have the KitSoundPocket Hive in rose gold. This speaker will be appearing in a winter issue of GQ, and it is easy to see why so many people are loving this. This speaker is only a couple of inches high, and comes with a hard shell carry case so it is incredibly portable. The passive bass radiator has been configured to maximise the depth and richness of sound, and the rose gold grill brings a twist to what is a well loved design.
Google launched its colourful new update to the Chromecast yesterday, not one but two different devices. One of the new additions a lot of folks were getting excited about was that music streaming giant Spotify is finally supporting Chromecast. However, after explaining a more about the service today, Spotify say owners users the new Chromecast will be able to ‘cast music directly’ from a phone or tablet right away. The cloud this silver lining is wrapped around is only Spotify Premium subscribers will be able to send content to Chromecast Audio. I’m sure this will only effect a smaller percentage of Spotify users, and perhaps will help Google keep their Play Music as via option of Chromecast users in the future. However there are a fair few out there that will be a little glum about this stipulation.
First-gen Chromecast will need to wait for a firmware update enabling Spotify support first from Google. This is expected in the coming weeks.
