  • Farewell Ouya, we never really knew ya.

    30 July 2015, 5:35 am by: khellan

    It was meant to be the next cheaper and easy to get into era in gaming. I was the Ouya, based on Android and using the ecosystem that Android provided. It was a lovely dream, but that dream is now fading to black – almost. No, Ouya isn’t quite going to…
  • Meizu m2 announced. You won’t believe the price for these specs!

    30 July 2015, 5:07 am by: Leigh Geary

    Sorry, that headline was so bit click-baity wasn’t it?  Perhaps my next article should be called, “Top 10 smartphones – Number 3 will shock you!” Anyway, whilst scoffing my breakfast I noticed that Meizu announced their latest entry-level smartphone…
  • Moto X Play – A compromise? – Opinion.

    30 July 2015, 4:11 am by: khellan

    Before we covered the news of the Motorola announcement, all I thought I wanted was the equivalent of a 2014 Moto X with a better battery and camera. Then the Moto X Play came along. I thought I’d hit the jackpot. I didn’t need to go up to the bigger…
  • What is a hot spot not? Not a good spot. See them cheaply with the Seek Thermal smartphone…

    29 July 2015, 11:07 am by: Leigh Geary

    I know what you want (what you really, really want). You want to do some thermal imaging don’t you? I’ll bet you’re constantly wishing that your smartphone could do this. You’d LOVE to be able to see the heat spots in your house. Possibly locate where…
  • Create your own free conference calls

    29 July 2015, 10:05 am by: Leigh Geary

    Conference calls. They fill me with dread if I’m honest. Usually you’ll end up accidentally talking over someone during the call, then they’ll stop talking just as you stop talking, then you’ll both apologise, then you’ll both start talking again.…
  • Samsung want you to hide the lump in your trousers

    29 July 2015, 9:28 am by: Leigh Geary

    Quite a weighty press release awaits you below, but I’ll do my best to distill it into a partially interesting news post. Basically the Samsung boys have been beavering away on a new image sensor for mobile phones. What this will basically do is deliver…
  • XIAOMI Redmi2 pro – Quad-core and 2GB RAM for less than £85

    29 July 2015, 7:21 am by: Leigh Geary

    Sadly, I’ll need to be sending back the Meizu M1 Note that I’ve borrowed to review. The fact that it’s so cheap and so good has already got me back onto the internet looking for bargains, and I’ve stumbled across the XIAOMI Redmi2 pro for just $129.99,…
  • Rock Dr V Protective Case for iPhone 6 Plus – Review

    29 July 2015, 6:35 am by: Mike

    There are a million and one phone cases out there, so it’s always nice to review one that is slightly out of the ordinary.  The Rock Dr V Protective Case offers something different, I’m just not convinced what the point is.  What is novel I hear you ask?…
  • Amazon launches streaming music service in the UK

    29 July 2015, 5:00 am by: Mike

    Hot on the heels of Apple, Amazon has just launched its own streaming music service in the UK.  This is certainly a crowded market place these days, and Amazon’s mission is not helped by the fact that it has significantly less music than its rivals.  It…
  • Already SIM-only? Keep looking, you could get an even better deal

    29 July 2015, 3:31 am by: Leigh Geary

    Let’s assume that there’s a healthy section of you on giffgaff. Let’s also assume that you might be going to an area where the signal perhaps isn’t so great. Perhaps you’ve looked at Three and thought that getting 1GB of data for £14 isn’t enough…
  • Meizu M1 Note – Review

    29 July 2015, 3:05 am by: Leigh Geary

    So this has surprised me in a way. When it first arrived the box itself didn’t exactly scream “premium”. I mean, there’s nothing really wrong with the box per se, but I’ve got used to some of the recent review phones turning up in carefully sculpted…
  • Android bug leaves nearly all devices open to attack

    28 July 2015, 11:06 am by: Leigh Geary

    If you’ve got yourself an Android and you were having a good old laugh at the iPhone text messaging bug a few weeks ago, it’s time to stop. Now there’s an Android bug which pretty much affects all Android devices. It’s occurs when an MMS arrives with a…

    28 July 2015, 6:13 am by: Leigh Geary

    Not long to go. August 13th marks the second big Samsung reveal this year, and we’re all assuming it’s the Galaxy Note 5 which has already leaked out quite considerably.  NYC will host the event, which could also see the S6 Plus, and it looks like Samsung…
