MWC – Lacking an IR blaster? Get this.

Some of you are lucky enough to have an IR blaster in your phone. You’re lucky enough to be able to control your TV, stereo and more – direct from your phone. It’s a neat trick, if you’ve got the necessary hardware. What if you haven’t? Last

MWC – Elliptic Labs. Ready to be the next big thing

Kitvision Escape Action Camera Review.

Right let start with talking about the elephant in the room, the Kitvision Escape HD5W action camera, that I have been sent through to review, is the spitting image of the current class leader, but I’m not going to go pro there. Now that’s done…… The action camera

Pebble for Android gets actionable notifications

Avantek 4-Port USB Charger Review

It’s a problem I’ve battled for many years now and still haven’t really resolved. Cables, everywhere. Not only that, but I seem to have chargers everywhere too, and they’re all plugged in – all the time. There’s one in the bedroom, one in the lounge and a

Charge without a charger

As the man of the household, whatever I say goes. I wear the trousers and I make the decisions… errr..when the wife isn’t there of course. So, with my endless chargers scattered around the kitchen and in the bedroom, I do get “reminded” that they’re messy and

Reviveaphone Kit Review

That moment where you drop your prized possession into the toilet, bath or sink (really any receptacle that holds water) is cringe inducing. This phone, the one you have been coveting for nearly a year and have spent the best part of your wage check to buy

HTC RE – Review

Here it is then, the magical camera without a viewfinder. Well, not an on-board one at least. Strange thoughts went through my head when I unboxed this. Could I cope without having an onboard viewfinder or some sort of screen to show me instantly what my photo
