Stuff (UK) - - HOT STUFF -

Some­times the dig­i­tal ver­sion of some­thing is way bet­ter than the phys­i­cal equiv­a­lent. Spo­tify is more ver­sa­tile than an ipod, more fun than dig­ging in your gar­den, and Alexa less de­mand­ing than any flat­mate. The de­bate between books and e-read­ers is much harder to re­solve – but per­haps the new Kin­dle Oa­sis will set­tle it once and for all. Ama­zon has given its flag­ship e-reader a big­ger 7in screen and found room in­side for a meatier bat­tery, last­ing up to six weeks between top-ups. And it re­mains just 3.4mm thick, mak­ing it a much bet­ter hol­i­day com­pan­ion than a stack of hard­backs, es­pe­cially now you can read by the pool with­out fear of dis­as­ter thanks to IPX8 wa­ter-re­sis­tance. Don’t know how to read yet? Bring wire­less head­phones and you’ll be able to lis­ten to au­dio­books, as the Oa­sis can use Blue­tooth for more than ac­ces­si­bil­ity fea­tures now. Sorry, books. You lost.
