Welcome to this special newsletter, on what is one of the most exciting days in our 15-year history. We've reimagined and relaunched TechRadar, remaking everything from our logo and color scheme to – as you can see above – this newsletter, and introducing some new regular articles and features to expand and enhance our already unrivaled coverage of all things tech.
We've also got a new tagline: 'The technology experts'. It's one that we think better reflects our purpose and promise: real tech experts, with real experience, offering real advice for your very real technology world. This is one refresh you'll want to see and experience for yourself – so click the links, check it out, and tell us what you think.

As I mentioned above, TechRadar has a whole new look, and we've done much more than just give the site a fresh coat of paint – we've also overhauled the site navigation to make it easier to find the news, reviews, and buying advice you're looking for.
To coincide with our relaunch we've carried out an in-depth survey of TechRadar readers and general consumers – and we've got some suprising findings, including that tech fans would rather cut back on pretty much anything than forego a new phone or laptop.
We're also marking our relaunch by introducing some new regular features, and one of them is Fast Charge, a live blog in which we cover and analyze the day's biggest news stories – today we're focusing on the launch of Meta's Twitter rival, Threads.
Helping our readers choose the right tech for their needs is what we're all about, and in our new How to Choose slot we offer targeted in-depth advice and tips to help you find the right device at the right price – we're kicking off the series with MacBooks.
Another new feature we're really excited about is Homescreen Heroes, in which TechRadar writers talk about the apps they couldn't live without – and we think you'll love them too. Today a certain Lance Ulanoff sings the praises of iPad drawing app Procreate.
We're revving up our coverage of electric vehicles on TechRadar, and if you're thinking of ditching the gas guzzler and plugging into the future you'll want to read our UK Editor-in-Chief Marc McLaren's experiences – good and bad – of buying his first EV.
