Devolo dLAN 550+ WiFi – Review

It’s going to be a quick one to review this because, in all honesty, it takes seconds to turn on and get going. Let’s face it, WiFi isn’t always good enough. Sky TV have launched their new Sky Q system and, in order to try and solve the …

iClever BoostSound BTS-04 Wireless Speaker – Review

I always start reviews like this by saying, “There’s lots of Bluetooth speakers to choose from”. You’ll find them in electronics shops and supermarkets and it’s very hard to know which ones are good. Here, we’ve got another one from iClever. This will set you back (at the …

Devolo WiFi ac Repeater – Review

Thinking of getting a signal booster? Wait right there..

You young kids might call it “bantz” now, but I was having a “discussion” on Twitter with a few people about the in-building penetration provided by networks operating on 900MHz. The likes of O2 and Vodafone both seem to get through the walls of my home but, using …

iPad Case Review – The Pong

This week we’ve been given a number of iPad cases to test. This one seems to have stuck to the iPad the most so far – it’s the Pong, or just “Pong”. What’s special about it? Is it the fact that it’s presented in a posh white box? …
