Solitaire – Get a more polished version

You may remember my trip down memory lane when Microsoft launched their classic Solitaire app for both iPhone and Android devices. It was true to the original Windows desktop version, and Microsoft took great pride in promoting the “classic” feel of it, with the same graphics and te …

Vodafone ditches roaming charges for 40 destinations

ThruNite TH20 High-output LED headlamp – Review

Yes, I’ve got me another headlamp. I look a bit like a miner in the photos (albeit one who has only just woken up) but, if you’re working on your car, cycling at night, repairing a puncture, walking the dog or out camping; this is the ideal bit …

Why should local businesses rely on just Google and Facebook?

It’s 2017. The internet has been around for quite a long time and, I’ll freely admit, so have I. I’ve seen web pages go from simple blocky creations to Flash-heavy monstrosities. I’ve seen us go from huge CRT monitors and PC’s to tablets and mobiles. Here’s how our …

Tesco Mobile offering Double Data on iPhones and SIM-only

HawkEye – A secure charging solution for your smartphone

If you’re travelling then you’ll no doubt need to charge your phone pretty often, sometimes in places which aren’t overly secure. In a coffee shop, in an airport or on a plane. Thing is, after you’ve charged up and unplugged your phone, you might remember the phone but …

Curved glass ? Big replacement cost.

I’m going to start this piece by saying that I’ve never been greatly bothered by phone insurance. It’s not something I’ve considered getting because I’m generally pretty careful. However, thanks to our bank (and a regular monthly fee) we have a few “perks” which includes travel and mobile …

Those budget Android smartphones. Now even cheaper.

The price of smartphones seems to be going in two different directions at the moment. At the top end, the likes of the iPhone 7 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 will see you paying more and more for your flagship mobile. At the bottom end, something else is …

The Huawei P10 – First impressions and camera special

This comes on loan from EE, where it’s available for £40.99 per month with 5GB of monthly data and unlimited texts and calls. Although I’ve perhaps not totally unleashed everything it can do – I’m properly impressed so far. Out of the box, it was the build quality …

Productivity and mobility. The QWERTY-powered Gemini

I’ll be honest, I’ve been experiencing a bit of a lethargic phase recently. There’s been a degree of apathy in the last few weeks as the never-ending wave of phones from Mobile World Congress has almost deadened my mood. Why? Well, as much as I understand the reasons, …

Dodge those RPI contract increases with Tesco Mobile

A lot of you may have received a text message from your network recently. I know I have. On my Vodafone plan I’ve received this text which pushes my bill up by 3.2%. This, if you check your payslip, will probably be way higher than your most recent …

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has been leaking all over the internet in the last few weeks but, finally, we now know all about it. There’s two handsets – the £689 S8 with a 5.8″ screen and the £779 S8+ with a 6.2″ display. Both of them have the …

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S+ … Everything you need to know

In London it was cold. In New York it was cold too. However, despite our efforts Samsung wouldn’t let us attend the launch events. We have instead seen the very strange “live in London” TV advert featuring some extremely eager people watching the “unboxing”. So, what’s the big …

New Amplicomms M9500 elderly-friendly smartphone announced

We’ve previously seen Doro delivering easy-to-use-yet-clever smartphones for the elderly. I like them because it’s not just a matter of big buttons and a big screen – it’s the remote access that friendly and family can have to the phone. Now a company called amplicomms are getting in …
