Yay! Let’s film stuff in the car!

Good morning! It’s Friday at last !! Well no. Sadly it’s not. It’s still only Thursday. No matter though, because it’s Autumn now and the nights are drawing in, so you can turn the heating on and sit inside, twiddling on your smartphone more. Boom! Now, we all …

Remember the HTC Re ? You can still get something like it..

It was an interesting idea. A camera, without a viewfinder, that you randomly carried around (probably with your camera-packing-phone) and generally pointed in roughly the right direction of whatever you wanted to film. We reviewed the HTC Re a couple of years back but now it’s vanished from …

Google Play serving up a 99p movie rental

It’s sunny outside but, if you fancy putting your feet up and catching a movie tonight, Google Play is the place to go. Here in the UK they’re offering up ANY movie for just 99p.. You can then either watch it on your phone or pipe it through …

Another flying Selfie Shooter – AirSelfie

Just the other week we had the SELFLY. It was a flying camera which, when it wasn’t in the air, formed a case around your phone. Now, we’ve got a competitor in the form of the AirSelfie. It looks to be a smaller and ultra-portable. The people behind …

The Coolsmartphone Mobile Video Studio

OK. Slightly off-topic today, but the regular readers will no doubt be aware that I film a lot of our product reviews in my car. As an example, my SanDisk iXpand overview or this FM transmitter review. I was even doing this some 10 years ago in glorious …

Angry Birds, coming to a cinema near you. Not long to wait now..

Remember when everyone played Angry Birds? It was before everyone started getting into Piano Tiles, Clash of Clans and that talking cat thing. Anyhow, after a million versions of Angry Birds they decided to make it into a movie. The release date is now just over two months …

You’re filming it wrong!

When you see someone filming with their smartphone, name the thing that annoys you more than anything. It’s probably this… Filming stuff the wrong way around. It’s criminal. Worst of all is when someone starts filming in portrait and then turns the phone 90 degrees whilst it’s recording. …

Orange Wednesdays – It’s all over

A lot of people chose EE and, previously, Orange, because of the Orange Wednesdays offer. It gave you two seats in your local cinema for the price of one and, if you got enough codes, you could take the entire family for half the price. EE continued the …

Can you fall in love with your phone?

Yesterday I went to watch the Harry Hill Movie. It is, I’ll confess, utterly insane. The kids seemed to like it, although there weren’t a great of laugh-out-loud moments. I was just utterly puzzled about the whole thing and how on earth it had got into a movie. …

Spy on the mechanics with Audi Cam

A couple of months ago I took my car to an Audi dealer for repair. The £20 job quickly turned into a £700 repair bill and, no matter how many times it was explained to me, I couldn’t fully understand what all the techy mechanical stuff meant. Now …

Can you film a movie on a smartphone?

The BBC have filmed a miniture movie but, instead of using expensive HD broadcast cameras, they used a smartphone instead. They’ll be showing how it was done later but the results, we must admit, are rather good. Now sure, there’s going to be some slick BBC editing and …
