With a huge choice of entry- to mid-level DSLRs currently on the market I’m often skeptical about any manufacturer’s claims, but can the new 700D from Canon really stand out in a crowd?
Admittedly having seen and used so many cameras throughout my career I’m rarely impressed by much these days, other than actual results. The 700D is aimed as an entry-level camera but I wanted to put it to the test throughout my working week, piggybacking my 5D Mark II, not to test it in comparison with, but it’s just the best way for me to gauge it as

Could these innovations be the next big advancements for iOS devices?
Now that we’ve crossed off a couple dozen items on our iOS punch list thanks to Jony Ive’s stellar work, we can fully turn our attention to his other job: making insanely great iPhones and iPads. It’s been about a year since there’s been any new iOS hardware to speak of, and quite frankly, we’re chomping at the bit to get our hands on all the new things he’s been cooking up. While we will probably only get an incremental «5S» upgrade to the iPhone this year, we still

Writer Samantha Noyes, 30, lost two thirds of her body weight and expected her life to transform.
It’s still weird for me J to type that. If you need a frame of reference, I lost two Zoe Saldanas plus an average eight-year-old girl.
The first thing everyone asks when they discover how much weight I’ve lost is how the hell I got that big in the first place. The truth is that, during my first year at university, I was raped. I never told anyone, mainly because I didn’t think anyone would believe me. He was attractive; I was never

Diving into the male psyche can be a dangerous game — especially when it comes to sex — but we took the plunge and asked more than 700 men 61 intimate questions. Forewarned is forearmed: read this and never be surprised at men again. Remember, knowledge is power.
SO WHAT EXACTLY ARE MEN GETTING UP TO?
First things first: most men lost their virginity between 16 and 19. An energetic 3% claim to have slept with over 100 women, but overall they were less promiscuous than you might imagine, with only half having had a one-night stand.

It seems it’s all too easy to overshare
50 shades of awkward
My housemate had invited me to her friend’s party (begrudgingly), but was vague about what it was for. I turned up to be greeted by a mass ofpenis balloons… but it wasn’t a hen party; they were celebrating the 50th time they’d had sex. Yes, really. There were T-shirts with charts citing the average number of times they’d done it per week (three), and how often they’d both ‘come! It was all so awkward I couldn’t handle it, and snuck out after a few drinks. Why?? Ellen*, 24,

In October 2012 Thin Lizzy announced that they would be recording and touring their new material under a fresh name. Scott Gorham tells Martyn Casserly about the birth of Black Star Riders
With next year marking the 40th anniversary of Scott Gorham as a recording artist, you might expect to find him taking things easy; maybe even settling down by the fire, brandy in hand, to tell the grand kids all about his glorious adventures as the lead guitarist with rock royalty Thin Lizzy. Well, it seems the pipe and slippers will have to wait a few years more as

Yes, we know Ron is well-known and hardly ‘unsung’, but read on: Bertie Simmonds makes the case for Rocket Ron being knighted for the passion he’s put into motorcycling, despite the odds and some tragic personal losses.
It’s always those people who are quiet and unassuming whose talents and efforts get ignored, or passed over by those more willing to talk about themselves or big up their achievements.
I think this of Ron Haslam and I’m making a pitch for final recognition of the passion, dedication and sheer effort that Ron has put into motorcycle racing and two-wheels in general

Planetary Resource’s Chris Lewicki on what we can expect to see in the future.
“The first activities of Planetary Resources actually start in space next year with early demonstrations of some of our commercial technologies to dramatically reduce the cost of this. In about two years’ time we will be putting in orbit around the Earth space telescopes which we can use to discover, characterise and monitor potential asteroid targets that we will then go out and explore in more detail up close.”
“By 2020 I really see us having several spacecraft missions out to a number of

Olivia Ripper, 27, married Robert Morton, 26, at Lime Wood Hotel, Hampshire, in August 2012. She says:
Lime Wood Hotel seemed the perfect choice for our wedding as Robert had proposed there. We held the ceremony in it’s enclosed courtyard — we opened the sliding glass roof as the weather was good.
We decided on a white colour scheme because it suited the neutral interior of the venue. I wanted a clean, unfussy look.
I wanted them to be white, abundant and candlelit to create a romantic scene.
We had three different designs for the centrepieces, all using

1. Where’s the strangest place you’ve had sex?
“It was in a lift! We only had to go up two floors so it was very exciting and the thought that somebody might be waiting for the lift at the top felt very naughty.”
2. What’s your trademark move in the bedroom?
“Sex from behind, mainly because of my bum and long ponytail. I love not being able to see the bloke but being able to hear him. I’ve been told my bum’s a massive turn-on, too!”
3. What really turns you on?
“Watching naughty programmes! There’s something about seeing hot
