Philips EverPlay Bluetooth speakers. Let’s have a look

I’m sitting in the sunshine and it’s about 30 degrees Celsius right now. To be honest I’m going a bit delirious and moving the “Coolsmartphone office” to a bench outside was perhaps not my best idea. Anyway, with summer here I picked out one message from my 5.4 …

Smartphones made of glass, lol

Wikipedia lists glass as ‘a non-crystalline amorphous solid that is often transparent and has widespread practical, technological, and decorative usage in, for example, window panes, tableware, and optoelectronics’. Here’s a further list of some things that are made of glass: Light bulbs Drinking vessels Spectacles Greenhouses Ashtrays Smartphones …

What is a VPN anyway?

Trust me, it’s not a scary thing. Just recently I had a relative ask why I had two WiFi networks at home. I explained that one was a VPN router, and offered me privacy and security. That, if I’m being honest, made their eyes glaze over a little. …

It’s a red one

Author’s Note: I apologise for the lateness of this article, since the product under discussion was released several weeks ago. To blame is my unfortunate visual impairment. I happen to be colour blind. If you’re wondering what this is all about, head to the product page for the …

What really happens when your phone or iPad goes in for repair

If you were travelling back into work this morning then, if you’re on the train or Tube, I’ll bet you’ve seen someone using a broken phone. Phones, let’s admit, are expensive things. We already pay enough per month to buy the things, so the thought of paying even …

Tesco Mobile offering Double Data on iPhones and SIM-only

We’re only days away from the Easter break now so, before you spend all your cash on chocolate eggs, don’t forget to save some cash and get something a bit less fattening. Right now, and until Sunday 23rd April, Tesco Mobile (operating on the O2 network) have a …

Record your iPhone screen – Movavi Screen Recorder

We’re always looking for new ways to show you around a smartphone and, as you’ll have probably seen here, we usually end up filming the screen of a smartphone with … another smartphone. If you’ve got a Mac then you’re probably going to be using an iPhone or …

Apple Launch New iPhones and a cheaper iPad

Without the usual fanfare of an Apple launch, a number of new iDevices have been announced to the market. Yes Red iPhones, larger capacity iPhone SEs and a new iPad have announced by everyone’s  fruit based tech company, and we have to say that the red looks rather awesome. …

Deal – iPhone 5s 16GB. £199 from Argos.

Sure, she’s not the newest iPhone in the world and it “only” has an 8 megapixel camera and 4″ screen, but for £199 you can’t argue much. The mighty Argos is selling them right now, completely unlocked. It’s got Siri on-board and has a dual-core A7 CPU. Up …

Play Snake on your smartphone right now.

Sure, you could get the new / old Nokia 3310 to play Snake on, but it’s not the traditional version. It is, as you may have seen in my hands-on video the other day, a modem jazzed up version. If you want the traditional version, try getting this …

Tesco Mobile slash the price of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge

With Mobile World Congress just around the corner and a raft of new handsets about to be announced, it’s a good time to check for deals on the handsets that are out there now. Tesco Mobile have just been in touch and they’re offering a pretty good deal …

Fancy a cheap iPhone ?

I think that the iPhone 5c was a great idea. A lot of kids seem to carry one around and my mother-in-law has one. It wasn’t badly priced and it gave the whole iPhone experience you expect. So, if you’re looking for one of those then head to …

How much is the app marketplace actually worth?

Apps. The ones I download are mostly free because, deep down in my heart, I’m tighter than a gnats backside. How do these apps make money then? How do the developers get paid? How do those big TV advertisements appear on TV if we never actually click “Buy” …

How to Record your iPhone Screen

One of the most frustration issues that mobile bloggers face is the difficulty encountered when trying to record a video of an iOS app in action. There is no built in app to record the on screen activity of your iPhone or iPad and whilst their have been …

The next iPhone will have a USB-C port, but not where you think

I have really enjoyed using the new MacBook Pro. In fact that’s an understatement, after all of my buyers remorse once I clicked the buy button – I have loved every minute. It is more than capable of doing everything I need, the screen is the best on …

Super Mario Run out today!

This looks to be the “next big thing” on mobile. Today Super Mario Run will finally launch for iOS devices and, although it looks a bit like the traditional Super Mario Bros, this is an “autorunner”, so the clever little plumber moves forward at all times. That means …

Try makeup on without the hassle

If you’ve ever gone into Boots or another store selling makeup and beauty products, you’ll no doubt have seen the orange-faced girls who are more than keep to plaster your moosh with lipstick and eyeliner. The result may or may not be what you’re looking for, but orange-faced …

Yeah, thanks for that Microsoft. Solitaire on my phone. Whoop.

Years ago, before flat screen monitors, we had big chunky PC’s with big chunky CRT monitors. Laptops weighed half a tonne and smartphones were just a dream. The internet? You’re joking son. If you were at work in these times (which, granted, seems like something from the prehistoric …
