Voice Navigation “OK Google” coming to Google Maps 

  Are you an “OK Google” superuser? To be honest, I’m not. I keep forgetting that it’s there, but today Google has announced an update to the Google Maps app which I think that I will use and be an extremely useful addition. “OK Google” and voice

Ofcom wants to know about your not-spots

Not being able to get a signal in the middle of a city is still, in 2016, all too easy. In Lichfield I can walk out of a Vodafone or EE store and, just a few metres from the door, I’ll have no signal at all. Even

Lumsing 4-Port USB Car Charger – Review

Agh!! You’re running back to your car and your phone is running low on battery. It happened today and my car has now become a recharge centre. However, if you go and buy a car charger thing from the local market it’ll probably be a cheaply-made thing

The other reason people are buying an Amazon Fire TV Stick

You’ll have seen these things advertised by Jeremy Clarkson. After punching a BBC TV producer, Top Gear returned with a change of presenters and some new ideas, but Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond joined Amazon. Their new show – called “The Grand Tour” – will

Topdon TP550 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones – Review

I confess from the outset that I’m a bit of an audio nerd.  I like music to sound good and don’t flinch at spending a few hundred pounds on headphones or other bits of kit.  I should also confess from the outset that I don’t like wireless

Google Pixel – Official image appears

Over on VentureBeat, serial leaker Mr Evan Blass has posted an image of the device we’re all expecting Google to announce during their October 4th event. It’s thought that the “Nexus” brand will be cast aside in favour of the new “Pixel” name, and this HTC-built device

OnePlus 3 – Exclusive to O2 from this Thursday

Those of you who follow us on Twitter can look away now. Indeed, if you’re a regular visitor then you really don’t need to read this story, because this is something we told you about way back in June. Our readers knew all about the OnePlus 3

Anker Power and protection mega unboxing

Over the last few weeks, I have been in the fortunate position to play host to some very cool charging tech from Anker. Anker is a company that have been providing power solutions to the mobile warrior for quite some time now, and they have some truly awesome

Protecting your teenager against sexting

When I was in my teens, smartphones weren’t really a “thing”. Sure, we had mobile phones, but they were big clunky things and you couldn’t even text on them unless you paid for the texting “service”. Plus, they were pretty much confined to older people, not “grandpa”

The hidden iPhone 7 3.5mm audio port – How to find it

It’s now time for another article about someone doing something stupid to a brand new iPhone 7. They’re hoping that they’ll get enough YouTube clicks so that they can get enough revenue to replace the phone that they’re just about to break. I know… this whole internet

aLLreLi sent us some iPhone Lightning Charger Cables

There’s usually an unwritten rule about these posts. You have to bulk them out a bit. I’m not going to go crazy, but if I’m honest I could describe these cables in a couple of sentences. These are the new Apple iPhone Lightning charger cables from aLLreLi

Rainbow Wrap Earbuds – Review

Well, these earbuds are certainly the most colourful earbuds I have tested so far. Leigh had another version earlier in Summer to play with. The new Rainbow edition is a limited edition of the Wraps series of earbuds. The Rainbow edition will match the specifications of the

Snap Spectacles coming soon – Record your life and share it.

Remember the Hyundai sunglasses we reviewed? They had a tiny hidden camera in the front and were designed to record your biking adventures. You could also perhaps wear them around town and record “things” if you wanted. It all seems fine until someone on the bus says,

Get ready for Christmas – the Amazon Fire Kids Edition

Head to your local supermarket and you’ll find many weird and wonderful tablets which are all pretty well priced. They may look like a decent option for your kids, but how do you know if they’re any good? How do you know if they’re supported? Amazon have

Koopower Solar Fairy Lights – Review

KooPower have been in touch again and, following on from the wireless doorbell we reviewed, we now have 12 metres of LED fairy lights. Now, I’ve had these in the back garden for quite a while as I honestly thought that they wouldn’t work. Why? Well, solar
