Whatever happened to KAZAM?

Tribit XSound Go Bluetooth Speaker – Review

Inside this well-built speaker is a 4,400mAh battery which takes 5 hours to charge. Once you’ve charged it, it’ll play your tunes for a full 24 hours depending on the volume you set it at. That volume, and the sound quality, is really rather good. I just wish …

When machines cause panic

In a lot of countries, there’s a clever alerting system which sends texts to everyone if bad things happen. Alerts can be issued by the totally sane and completely normal US President, or by various agencies if there’s an imminent threat to life. You can receive extreme threats …

Wanna write for us? Do it. Do it. Do it.

We’re not like engadget, Android Authority, Pocket-mint and The Merge. Oh no, we do things in a British style-y. We write all proper-like and we like to think that there’s more interesting items on here too. Less marketing, more honesty. As for me, I’ve written about phones and …

Hello, you fool, I love you

Well, well, well! Welcome 2018! Just after Christmas I got knocked sideways by this Australian Flu thing and I’ve only just got rid of it. Put it this way, you really don’t want it. It’s bloody horrible. I’ve spent so much time in bed, and not in a …

At this time of year, there’s always going to be some slightly unpredictable driving. Some idiots will take a chance drink driving, others will be distracted and some will just be generally terrible at driving or parking. It’s basically silly season where everybody panics to get those bargains …

Watch out for the phone zombies!

Some years ago China tried to control smartphone zombies. They were everywhere, heads down and drifting into each other. It got so bad that a separate smartphone lane was installed so that very low-speed accidents no longer happened. Now, in Sweden they’re trying something very similar. Their solution …

Apple – Yes, we do slow down your iPhone

Following some rather technical research and testing from Geekbench, Apple have finally admitted that they do indeed slow down iPhones. It’s long been a suspicion of iPhone owners, who tend to feel that their handset slows just before the launch of the next Apple phone. Now though, we …

Want to use Strava? Don’t get an Honor or Huawei handset

Over the years I’ve grown to love the Huawei and Honor handsets. Right now I have the Honor 9 and it’s a fantastic device for the money. Great camera, great performance and great looks. Love it, I really do. Trouble is, there’s one thing it won’t do. For …

Switch mobile networks without fuss. Coming soon!

Many people have likened their favourite mobile provider to their bank, and they’ll stick with that same provider for some time. Loyalty, though, doesn’t always get you the best deals or the best coverage, so it’s good to try comparison sites and look at the options. Now Ofcom, …

SmartHalo – Finally, an easy to use navigation device for your bike

We’ve seen similar things in the past, but I’ll confess that this is the first one selling on Apple.com. The Montreal-based startup has sent us oodles of details for their SmartHalo gadget, but for me it’s probably easier to just watch this demo video. I promise I didn’t …
