Remember the Leophile Eel headphones we reviewed? I love the things. Bluetooth headphones that actually work. They’re comfortable, waterproof and stay in your ears properly. The sound isn’t bad either. I still wear them daily. Here’s me wearing them at the beach this morning.. Yes, that was a …

Let’s be honest. If you’re buying an Android phone then, if you’re careful and don’t install much, you’re probably not going to be bothered by viruses or other nasties. However, looking at my son’s phone, he’s definitely not careful, and when I’m rushing to find an app to …
