LIFX- Smart lighting system -Review

Believe it or not, outside this website, I live in a fairly tech-free household. This is for the most part because my wife doesn’t want the house to be festooned with technology. The other reason is due to the old adage of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix …

Android Wear is becoming Wear OS

If sales are anything to go by then the Apple Watch is the king of the wearable world.  Android Wear has often seemed a poor relation, and this is despite the greater variety of watches available.  In the last few days Google has announced that Android Wear is …

Anker PowerCore 26800+ Unboxing

I hate being tied down to mains plugs sockets – it’s one of the most annoying things that occur when I am off on my travels. It really does annoy me, to the extent that when I was looking for a new computer I made sure I could …

#MWC18 – Come on PanzerGlass, give it a PROPER whack!

On Monday we saw the guys from PanzerGlass hammering their own screen protectors to prove how well they protect your phone. Now, truth is that they do break sometimes, and they’re designed to do that if there’s a really, really hard impact. After all, it’s better to have …

#MWC18 – MyScreen Protector, a phone, a drill. What could go wrong?

See? I’m becoming a master at this click-bait headline writing! So, just around the corner from PanzerGlass is a company called MyScreen Protector. They have a protector that you can fit yourself (the PanzerGlass ones are perhaps best fitted professionally) and it’s got a special film which is …

#MWC18 – PanzerGlass, a phone, a hammer. What could go wrong?

Misleading headline that because, in reality, nothing went wrong. I am, though, learning the art of click-bait ;) Yes, we’re back again in Barcelona and we’re back to see those crazy guys at PanzerGlass as they show just how good their screen protectors actually are. They’ve roped in …

So, you want a dashcam, but you don’t want the bulk?

The kind gents at Conbrov sent us a dashcam just recently. Now I’ll admit, it sat in the box for a few days and I didn’t really take a great deal of notice. After all, our “review cupboard” is always bulging. However, today I actually got time to …

VibesAudio VibeRox Sound Engine. Hands-on Review

A few weeks ago I was sent this rather large box which contained a veritable haul of mobile accessories. The box was very kindly sent from a small startup called VibesAudio from America. They had just had their official launch and were very keen to get the review …

Get a protective case… for your PlayStation?

The PS4 that my son has is an expensive piece of kit. I’m forever telling him to be careful with the games too, as I’m sure you guys do at home. Just one scratch, one mark, and that ever-so-expensive game will refuse to load. So, when I came …
