Consumer group Which? have conducted a survey of their members to get feedback on the Windows 10 operating system, and the results are far from pretty. According to their results, 12 per cent of members who installed Windows 10 reverted to an earlier operating system, and many users claim they actually didn't choose to install Windows 10 in the first place - it happened automatically without their permission.

Say hello to Allo, the new messaging app from Google. There are many messaging apps on the market - WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, SnapChat... heck, even good ol' fashioned text messages! What sets this one apart? The USP that Google has with Allo is that you can access Google's AI through the app, directly in messaging. The AI will suggest certain replies to messages, aimed at saving time if you're in a hurry, and you can also ask the AI direct questions in the message conversation. For example, you can ask it what the weather is going to be like tomorrow.
The downside of this, however, is the feeling that Google knows everything about you.
It seems that public opinion is already divided:

The Oculus Rift virtual reality headset is finally available to buy in the UK, and is can be purchased from Amazon, John Lewis, Currys PC World, Game and Harrods for £549. Certain stores have set up demo models, so if you have never experienced VR before you can now easily take a look.

The only downside is that the Oculus Touch is not yet available with the headset, so users have to use an XBox One controller instead (which comes free with the headset).

GoPro unveiled a range of new products today, and the highlight was the Hero5 Black. This camera is capable of recording 4K video at 30fps and 2K video at 60fps, can be voice controlled, and is waterproof up to a depth of 30ft without needing a separate case. The Hero5 Black also features a touchscreen on the back so that you don't need to link it to your smartphone.
In addition to the Hero5 Black, GoPro also revealed another new device in the same family - the Hero5 Session is a much smaller version of the Hero5 Black, and due to its small size does not feature a touchscreen. However it still benefits from features such as 4K video recording, voice control, and waterproofing.
Finally, and perhaps more excitingly, GoPro have revealed their first drone - the Karma. The drone is foldable and fits into a (supposedly comfortable and light) backpack. Another key feature of the Karma drone is that it has a 3-axis stabilising arm to help achieve smooth video in flight - and this arm can be detached and used separately.
The Karma drone is currently advertised at £719.99 on the GoPro site, and will be available on 23rd October 2016.
