How to Play Google’s World Cup Mini Game on Your Phone or Tablet

The World Cup 2022 has officially kicked off with hosts Qatar being tonked by Ecuador – the first time a host nation has lost the opening match. However, although it’s one of the weirdest, most controversial tournaments yet, there’s still plenty to get excited about with more than a month of football action to come.

And, what better way to get into the spirit of it than helping your team perform well in a small, fun game that anyone can play on a mobile phone?

Google has created an in-browser penalty shoot-out mini game to celebrate the World Cup, which you can not only play to pass the time, but support your home nation (or adopted qualified team) in the process. Here’s how.

Available for mobile phones and tablets only (you need a touchscreen to swipe), Google’s Mini Cup game is played in a browser and tasked you with scoring consecutive penalties until you miss one. To make it harder, the goalkeeper gets faster after each goal.

But, not only do you try to rack up the best total and beat your own high score each time, as you get to play World Cup matches due to kick off for real, your score is added to a worldwide total for your chosen team. That adds up until the final whistle of the real match to give your team points. You can then see the overall standings for all nations.

Here’s how to take part.

Open your mobile browser (Chrome, Safari, etc), head to Google and type “World Cup” into the search bar.

A spinning ball icon will appear in the bottom-right corner of the screen, along with the search results. Tap on it.

You’ll now see a list of fortncoming matches. Hit “Play” on one and you’ll be offered the option to play for one of the two teams.

Choose your team.

A goal will appear in the top half of the screen, with a ball at the bottom. You just need to swipe the ball in a direction towards the goal, while attempting to avoid the keeper.

If you miss the goal or the keeper saves it, it’s game over. Remember: the goalkeeper gets faster with each shot, so it gets tricky as the game progresses.

Your score adds up to the global total for your chosen team.

This Right Deal Here Is The Samsung Galaxy A14

Samsung’s unannounced Galaxy A14 has appeared in leaked press shots and it looks pretty good for a budget handset, too.

The phone, which is expected to come with a large 6.8-inch Full HD+ display, has been shared by leaker Evan Blass. He says that these images are the real deal and will be used by Samsung for press purposes, rather than the unofficial renders that had been shared before now.

These images show the front, back, and side of the phone including a trio of cameras around the back alongside an LED flash. The main camera is expected to be a 50-megapixel shooter, with a 13-megapixel camera handling selfie duties around the front.

On the inside, we’ve been told to look forward to an as-yet-unknown Exynos chip and a 5,000mAh battery.

The phone itself is expected to be “quite aggressively priced” while Blass also expects that carriers will offer “numerous ways to take it home for free”.

As for when Samsung is expected to finally take the wraps off the Galaxy A14, we still don’t have any concrete information. However, the report by Blass appears to suggest that it isn’t too far out, saying that Samsung will announce it after “people have already done their holiday shopping” as part of the recent Black Friday and Cyber Monday festivities.

Everything You Need To Know About The Trust Trezo Comfort Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Set

Everything You Need To Know About The Trust Trezo Comfort Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Set

Whether you’re an office worker, casual PC user, gamer, or programmer working long hours, a good keyboard can enhance your experience during any activity.

Wireless solutions offer flexibility and range and can declutter the desk to boost your concentration and productivity.

But is the Trezo Comfort Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Set the best wireless solution for your workstation or personal system setup? It distinguishes itself in four core categories, which says a lot about its potential and wow factor. Here are its main benefits.

Sustainable

Environmentally conscious laptop and PC users had few options when it came to peripherals. That is until the Trezo Comfort Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Set entered the scene. Built from 85% recycled materials and shipped in sustainable packaging, this keyboard and mouse combo earns a respectable 4-star Clevergreen rating.

This eco-friendly alternative to traditional peripherals sets the stage for high-end performance and flexibility, all the while minimizing carbon footprint.

But don’t let the sustainable design fool you. The recycled PCR ABS plastic is durable and moulded to create a tough and spill-resistant keyboard and a versatile mouse.

Quiet

Aside from its sustainable design, the Trezo Comfort Keyboard and Mouse combo sets itself apart with impressive quietness. 

Few keyboards are truly silent, and the ones that are will rarely have additional standout features. But Trezo Comfort’s silent keys enable users to work in any environment and at any hour without disrupting their surroundings. It’s a reliable solution for home offices, virtual meetings, podcast studios, video editing, and other activities that require unobtrusiveness.

The mouse buttons’ soft action makes the entire set much more enjoyable and drives it forward as a remarkably silent keyboard and mouse combination for everyday use.

Durable

Wireless keyboards can be loaded with features. But sometimes, the bells and whistles can’t compensate for substandard core features. This is where the Trezo Comfort gets it right.

The keyboard and mouse have superior resource management and can use the battery quite efficiently. With a pair of good Duracell batteries, the keyboard can have enough power for up to 48 months. The mouse has a shorter battery life but still puts out a respectable 12 months of uptime on a charge. The set uses three AA batteries in total, with Duracell batteries included in the package for convenience.

The low power drain, considering the extra keyboard functions, is even more impressive.

The Trezo Comfort Keyboard comes with a full range of media keys and office keys. It gives users more control over their systems and apps from the keyboard and can streamline various commands. In addition, supporting a range of 10 meters on a wireless connection is no joke.

While the devices use little power in standby mode, users can switch off the mouse and keyboard when not in use to conserve even more energy and maximize battery life.

Ergonomic

What else can a keyboard and mouse set offer besides good battery life, range, and silent keys? People who spend most of their time glued to the screen are at risk of serious wrist, finger, and elbow strain.

Bowers & Wilkins Px8 Review: Luxury Listening

Bowers & Wilkins Px8 Review: Luxury Listening

When B&W launched the new Px7 S2 noise-cancelling headphones back in June, it teased that there would be something even better coming later in the year – its flagship headphones, and most advanced headphones yet, the Px8.

Now, the Px8s are here – and they’re predictably gorgeous. But do they make the £220 uplift in price from the also-awesome Px7 S2 make sense? Read on for our full review.

Design

  • 189mm x 63mm x 233mm
  • 320g
  • Leather and aluminium design
  • Black and tan colour options

Flagships headphones need a flagship design, and the Px8 don’t disappoint. Anyone who remembers B&W’s P9 Signature headphones from 2016 will recognise a similarly luxurious build here. 

For a start, the headphones sit on a sturdy cast-aluminium arm structure with a matching aluminium logo plate on the earcups. There’s tactile raised lettering for the Bowers & Wilkins logo and a bright diamond-cut edge that all helps give these headphones that premium look and feel you’d expect from B&W.

That’s only bolstered further by a soft Nappa leather finish across the earcups, headband and memory foam cushions, which is lovely to the touch and feels much more luxurious than the more rugged Saffiano leather of the P9s. Don’t let their plushness worry you though – we have been using them as our main pair of over ears for a few months now and they still look as good as when they came out of the box. There’s durability here too.

In terms of core design, the Px8 are not unlike the design of the Px7 S2, but it’s just a level up in materials and craftmanship. We love the way they look, but vegans will need to look elsewhere for their premium cans. Leather is the only material the Px8s are available in.

On the right earcup there are the majority of the physical controls, consisting of a Bluetooth pairing switch, volume up and down controls and a ridged multi-function button for music and call control with a varying number of presses. On the left earcup there is a single Quick Action button – this is set as standard to move through the noise cancellation modes, but you can change it to trigger your voice assistant if you prefer. All buttons are easy to access and have reassuring clickability.

There is no 3.5mm jack input here, but there is USB-C with a USB-C to 3.5mm cable included for wired listening (though they will still need to be charged) as well as a standard charging cable – all stashed in carrying case.

With the Px8s you get a choice of black or tan leather colourways, the latter having cream accents on the cushioning. Speaking of which, the comfort and fit is up a notch here too. It’s subtle but definitely noticeable when A/B testing against the Px7 S2 – and they’re a comfortable pair of headphones.

This is helped by the fact that B&W has managed to keep the weight down despite the more premium materials. Weighing in at just 320g, that’s only 17g heavier than the Px7 S2. Not bad at all.

Features and battery life

  • Noise cancellation
  • Bluetooth 5.0, aptX Adaptive support
  • Up to 30 hours battery life
  • Fast charging

The B&W Px8 are noise cancelling headphones, and use the same Bowers & Wilkins-optimised noise cancelling technology as the Px7 S2. Six high-performance mics work together to deliver the best results, with two measuring the output from each drive unit inside the earcup, two reacting to the ambient noise in the outside world and another two helping to provide voice clarity for calls while suppressing noise.

As with Px7 S2, the performance of the system has been improved from B&W’s original Px7 by moving the two external microphones closer together, adjusting the angling of each microphone to improve voice capture and changing the position of the second mic to reduce wind noise interference.
