We’ve seen a number of companies approaching us lately who want us to promote their smart gadgets. A lot of these gadgets now relate to the “Internet of Things” or a “Smart Home”. Whilst they’re all great, you can find that they’re a little disjointed – using
A small and upcoming mobile company called “Samsung” have just announced a date for their next Unpacked launch. There’s not long to wait, and already we’re expecting the device in question to be the Galaxy Note 7. We don’t know a great deal about the event, however
Honestly, at times I despair. Vodafone think that I’m going to post an article on this site purely because they’ve mentioned the words “beer” and “pub” in their press release. Disgraceful. I do like beer though. I like pubs too. Gahh… they’ve got me. OK, short version.
Today, as you’ll know from our earlier news item, is Amazon Prime Day. There’s deals a-plenty over there and we’ve already detailed a number of them. In addition, we’ve got to let you know that our deal on the Lumsing 5-port desktop charger that we reviewed last
Where do I start with this one? The picture alone is enough to give you an idea of the madness. It’s a “Cardboard Home Cinema” and, because it’s not the actual size of a real cinema, you basically lie on the floor and stare at your phone.
So it begins. With BT firmly in charge of the EE ship, we’re now seeing the first push to offer BT services on the network. Soon it’ll no doubt be BT supplied TV, home broadband and home phone instead of the current EE equivalents. Until then, we’ve
Yes, it’s that time again. Another one of my bike rides and another attempt by me to relate it to mobile phones or something. No. I’m not going to do that this time. Yes, I’m doing a bike ride. Yes, it’s even more insane this year. We’re
The Mi Band 2 is comfortable to wear and easy to forget about. I mean that in a good way because it doesn’t feel heavy or awkward thanks to the silicon strap and the easy but flush fitting of the Mi unit itself. It’s clever too –
It’s been 14 years now. Can you believe it? It all started on my CupOfCoffee personal blog and then, just a few months after, I registered this domain in February 2003. It’s been a wild ride. I’ve seen mobile companies come and go, networks merge and operating
I’ve reached the end of an EE SIM-only deal that I took out last year. It should’ve been £20.99 but I managed to get it down to £16.99 per month for 4GB of data and enough minutes to keep me waffling to the missus. However, that deal
There’s now four own-branded smartphones in the Vodafone armoury. We looked at the entry-level Vodafone Smart first 7 the other day and we’ve reviewed the mid-range Vodafone Smart prime 7. Now it’s the turn of the Vodafone Smart ultra 7. However, if you want an even higher-spec
Just a few days ago we found our Wileyfox launch invite. It had arrived in a lovely shiny plastic envelope and we kinda assumed it was junk mail. Doah. Anyway, down in London Wileyfox went ahead without us. They even handed out Fox’s Biscuits. Geddit? Fox? Fox’s
The PR people from CSR Racing have been emailing me quite a bit today. To be honest it’s a game I’m not familiar with, but I figured I’d give it a try. It’s a big download. I mean big. It’s one of those that needs a WiFi
Honestly. £20. It’s all bonkers isn’t it? This, as I’ve said before, is an Android phone that would’ve cost you £100 only a very short time ago. Now you can purchase a smartphone for a mere £20. Let’s get some things out the way. This is entry
We’re big into Spotify in our house. Since my wife got the service as part of her Vodafone contract she’s always upgraded with them purely to keep the deal. Now she’ll happily gobble through a massive 10GB monthly data plan just to get the inclusive Spotify offering
Upgrading or changing your phone can mean a certain amount of apprehension when you turn on the shiny new device. Where’s all your text messages? What about those special pictures you received? Will your background be the same? What about the position of your icons and shortcuts?
If you’re on a Vodafone Pay As You Go deal and you plan on going to Europe in the next couple of months, here’s some news. In addition to their doubling of data on the “Big Value” plans, they’s now added inclusive roaming too. There’s 4G in
Europe. It’s a touchy subject for us Brits right now. Don’t ask me about it, I’ll just grumble, “I told you so”. Anyhoo, if you want to buy a Alcatel POP 4 (it’s available from Carphone Warehouse but we couldn’t find it on their website at the
Whilst the likes of Google are testing out fully automated vehicles, there’s a selection of cars out on the road now that’ll add a certain degree of “self driving” tech. Normally, the system works on major highways / motorways and, by taking note of the lane markers
You know the drill by now. Your house is filled with chargers. You’ve probably got a couple by your bed, one in the kitchen, perhaps one in the lounge and maybe more besides. They’re all pumping out power but you’ve got cables everywhere and you’ve probably already
