VR – Will it succeed or suffer the same fate as 3D TV’s?

Somebody mentioned eSports to me recently and, whilst I write about smartphones daily, I’ll confess to not knowing a great deal about it. Last week, in Copenhagen, the Unibet Copenhagen Open gave visitors the chance to play against these eSports stars. VR played a big role, with the evolution …

VR – Still a big plaything

You’ve seen it on your high street, right? Charity shops and bookies. They’re seemingly everywhere. Now it’s happening on your mobile too. Juniper Research has predicted that by 2021 nearly $1 trillion will be bet via the internet, with mobile representing the “majority of net growth.” In fact, …

The Apple iPhone 7 – Time for some honesty

It’s just a couple of days to go until the launch of the iPhone 7. Sorry, but I’m going to say it like it is. Perhaps it’s the years of coverage I’ve done. Perhaps it’s the fact that all the modern smartphones look fairly similar from a distance …

iClever BoostRun BTH06 Bluetooth Headphones – Review

Perhaps it’s just me. I’m not sure, but I’ve reviewed quite a number of Bluetooth headphones over my time and they usually fall into two distinct categories. Category one is usually the sort that go flat after just an hour, but the sound and the bass response is …

Headphones you say? Without a cable that’ll get snagged in my coat / zip / neck? Yes, I’ll have a look at that thanks. These, unsurprisingly, are headphones with Bluetooth built in. Getting them paired up with your phone is the first step, but before we talk about …

Syllable D900 Bluetooth Headphones – Review

Bluetooth headsets. There’s lots of them out there and you’ll usually notice that they’re usually bulkier than normal headsets, especially around the ears. A lot also have a cable attaching the two. Here, the D900 headsets from Syllable arrive in a rather clever box which doubles as a …

Virtual Reality headset, in video

Back in the old days, when I used to construct this site on a daily basis using Microsoft Frontpage (yes, feel my pain), I used to make the odd mistake. Now I’m all professional and dat. It’s rare for you to find me spilling anything inkorrectly. However, sometimes …

Immerse – Virtual Reality Headset Review

I reviewed the Google Cardboard some time ago. It was £2 and is (obviously) made from cardboard. It’s a virtual reality headset which uses your phone as the screen. This one, which isn’t made of cardboard but has a similar design, is £29.95. You buy this, slap your …

Don’t use those free headphones? You should

Review – Digital Silence DS321D Noise Cancelling Headphones

I’ll be honest with you now. I’ve reviewed phones for many years now and I’ve seen a lot of in-ear headphones. You know the sort, they’re provided with every phone and usually end up staying in the box. Why? Well, put simply, they’re bobbins. Why do I say …
