From keen gardeners and allotment holders looking for somewhere to keep their tools, to the DIYers in need of a workshop, through to those who want to create an extra room or two to use as an office, a place to relax or even somewhere guests can sleep in. With so many functional considerations for the modern shed, it’s no surprise that there’s a lot of competition among manufacturers, who produce thousands of products for us to choose from. To help us put together this list of shed suggestions we consulted some experts on the subject, including Cuprinol Shed of the Year founder Andrew Wilcox (aka Uncle Wilco) and authors of Haynes Shed Manual, John Coupe and Alex Johnson. Most of the sheds we looked at are produced by businesses with a national presence, but it’s also worth checking suppliers in your area – you’ll likely find a great choice of sheds fro...

Subcontractor invests in three-machine fiber laser cutting cell

Sheet metal fabrication and CNC machining subcontractor Inishowen Engineering has invested €11 million in a new 160,000 sq. ft. factory. Sheet metal fabrication and CNC machining subcontractor Inishowen Engineering (Drumfries, Ireland), celebrating its 25th anniversary, has invested €11 million (over $12.2 million) in a new 160,000 sq. ft. factory. As part of the expansion program started, the company installed a 12 × 2 m capacity, 6 kW Bystronic flat-bed fiber laser cutting center in 2018 that joined two 4 × 2 m capacity models of similar power installed in 2015 and 2017. Also onsite is a CO2 laser machine for cutting tube up to 305 mm diameter by 12,500 mm long. Additionally, during the spring of 2019, Bystronic supplied and installed an automated sheet storage and handling system that continually loads and unloads material to and from the three flat‐bed lasers, reducing the manning requirements on these machines while also improving productivity.  “Underlying this latest round of investment is our diversification from concentrating mainly on the agricultural, quarrying, and mining sectors to supplying firms manufacturing materials handling and transportation equipment, ...

Overtaken by Frigid Seas, Hours From Help, There Was Little Chance of Survival

For an Alaskan fishing industry with an improving safety record, the sinking of the Scandies Rose was a devastating loss. It also began an astonishing tale of endurance. SEATTLE — On the lumbering journey through squally seas off the Alaska Peninsula, most of the seven crab fishermen aboard the Scandies Rose were resting in bunks on New Year’s Eve when the boat suddenly began listing to the starboard side. The crew rushed to the cramped wheelhouse and quickly began distributing survival suits, but before they could fully get them on, the boat pitched over so far that they were sliding along the floor. Then the power went out. Two of the crewmen, Dean Gribble Jr. and Jon Lawler, managed to pull themselves out onto the tilted deck, where, through the murk of a north Pacific night, the reality of their situation became clear. The boat was being tossed in every direction by 20-foot swells, and was sinking fast. Gale-force winds were crusting the ship’s surfaces with ice. Any chance of rescue was 170 storm-churned miles away. Mr. Gribble could see that he and his shipmate did not have long to live. He shouted to Mr. Lawler over the din of wind and groaning steel, “I wonder what every...

We’re patiently waiting for the all-new Audi A3. Spy photos last year showed the model undisguised.

We’re patiently waiting for the all-new Audi A3. Spy photos last year showed the model undisguised. We’re still waiting for a reveal, which is frustrating because we’re excited for what comes next – the Audi S3. Much like its less-sporty sibling, we’ve seen a lot of the new S3 already. Now, two new Instagram photos give us our best look yet at the new performance Audi. The photos come from the cochespias Instagram account showing the front and rear of the new S3 in all its glory. There’s no visible camouflage, just white and red covering certain parts of the car like part of the hood, grille, lower door, sill plates, and rear bumper. However, we can see the quad tailpipes and rear differs, sleek taillights, aggressive front fascia, and big wheels. The design matches what we’ve seen from other test mules. We’ve had a great look inside the new S3 as well, with images showing off a radically different interior. The infotainment screen is baked right into the dash – it no longer sits on top of the dashboard like an awkward tablet. Below the screen are conventional buttons for the climate controls. The interior is similar to that of the 2020 Skoda Octavia and 2020 VW Golf, bot...

Jumping Worms Are Taking Over North American Forests

The “crazy worms” remaking forests aren’t your friendly neighborhood garden worms. Then again, those aren’t so great either. On a sweltering July day, I follow Annise Dobson down an overgrown path into the heart of Seton Falls Park. It’s a splotch of unruly forest, surrounded by the clamoring streets and cramped rowhouses of the Bronx. Broken glass, food wrappers, and condoms litter the ground. But Dobson, bounding ahead in khaki hiking pants with her blond ponytail swinging, appears unfazed. As I quickly learn, neither trash nor oppressive humidity nor ecological catastrophe can dampen her ample enthusiasm. At the bottom of the hill, Dobson veers off the trail and stops in a shady clearing. This seems like a promising spot. She kicks away the dead oak leaves and tosses a square frame made of PVC pipe onto the damp earth. Then she unscrews a milk jug. It holds a pale yellow slurry of mustard powder and water that’s completely benign—unless you’re a worm. “Holy smokes!” she says, as a dozen worms come squirming out of the soil—their brown, wet skin burning with irritation. “Disgusting.” I have to agree. There is something unnerving about their slithering, serpentine style; instea...

When Android smartwatches first came out, they were more of a toy and not a utility

When Android smartwatches first came out, they were more of a toy and not a utility to actually get things done. The early days of Android smartwatches consisted of watches running a poorly ported version of Android with interfaces that do not scale well with the form factor at all. Today, Android smartwatches are much more capable. The recent Wear OS update brought with it standalone apps, its own Play Store, Android Pay and significantly improved optimisation. Now, Android smartwatches are more polished than ever, becoming a viable extension of your smartphone in their own right, allowing you to perform numerous tasks without pulling out your phone. It is Wear OS’s multi-talented feature-set that has driven the popularity of Android smartwatches. But of course, the wide range of gorgeous watches that run it helps too. Google doesn’t allow OEMs to customise Wear OS. This means that all Android smartwatches offer the same basic user experience. However, OEMs are free to include whatever connectivity modules they like in their devices, and they are free to choose whatever hardware they wish. This means that while any two Wear OS smartwatches might feel similar in use, they might ...

Commentary: This breast pump doesn’t turn heads — and that’s the point. It saved my sanity

Commentary: This breast pump doesn’t turn heads — and that’s the point. It saved my sanity while covering the world’s largest tech show. I’m sitting in a workroom here at CES 2020 with 35 of my CNET teammates, and no one knows I’m pumping breast milk.  That sentence would have sounded insane three years ago, but this motherhood magic is possible because of a machine called the Willow that’s tucked inside my bra. It’s technology that was unveiled at CES 2017 and is changing my life today — and the lives of 60,000 other Willow owners looking for dignity and freedom while providing for their babies.  At this year’s show in Las Vegas, Willow announced the third generation of its $500 wireless, Bluetooth-connected breast pump, which collects milk in spill-free bags. The machines look the same as prior models, but inside is new tech that improves the smarts of the suction automation, resulting in a softer, slower rhythm. In Willow’s tests, it led to women pumping 20% more milk on average compared to older Willow models.  It’s not the kind of tech that turns heads. It’s not a giant TV wall or an alien concept...
