Moo! Milky milky VR!

Cows, apparently, produce better milk when they’re all chilled out and calm. So, in Russia, they’ve decided that the best way to keep a dairy cow calm is to ensure it’s in a serene and beautiful field. However, not all cows get that. They’re in a milking shed …

Register to vote. Do it now.

During the last few years I’ve seen an erosion in trust of traditional media. I’ve seen politicians happy to see this happen and they’ve pushed hard with their “fake news” accusations, spreading their own “version” of what’s real.

General election 2019 – Liars continue to lie, but make sure you vote

You may remember how I detailed just how much fake news we’re now reading. Printed newspapers are dying and, with smaller budgets, resort to padding out 5-line tweets. Pinch a tweet, add a few random paragraphs, don’t bother with any fact-checking and watch the click-bait money coming in. …

5 Common blogging mistakes

OnePlus 7T Review – Day 2

In our first part of this review the weather was pretty terrible, so I unboxed the OnePlus 7T in the car. During that video I mentioned the camera, so today it’s a deeper look into this. It’s quite a clever setup actually. The main camera that you’ll be …

Best tablet for writers. Is it right under your nose?

I stumbled across a gadget that I’d almost forgotten about recently. It was an iPad Mini. Wow. Remember this? When we used to use tablets for things? Strangely though, I’ve found a new a new use for it as our existing “radio phone” has failed in the kitchen. …

How about sticking a floppy drive in your smartphone?

Over the years I’ve put some interesting things into my Android phone. Wow, that’s an opening line isn’t it? It all started when I stuck a mouse into the USB port, just to prove that Android does indeed support a number of peripherals. Things moved on with the …

Huawei Freebuds 3 earphones – Review

I have always been a bit of a luddite when it comes.to earphones staying true to using the classic Apple EarPods since way back when I had the OG iPhone. I even used to solder the Earpods onto the headphone cable that came with my new phone to …

OnePlus 7T Review – Day 1

I liked this particular phone the minute I saw it at the launch. Sure, there’s a “Pro” model, but I was more impressed with the design of this one. I’m not saying that the other one is bad, because it isn’t – this one was just my preference. …

Driving the evolution of mobile phones

As we approach 5G, an entirely new realm of speed and efficiency is opening up to us. As much as this leap promises to offer, however, it also illustrates more of an expansion of what already exists than a complete reshaping of how our mobile lives operate. Despite …

The new Motorola RAZR. Take my money.

Well, this one was a bit of surprise when it appeared in our inbox. After many very similar-looking slate handsets, out of nowhere, comes this… I know, right? At last, a phone with a refreshingly old-but-new form factor. Not just a big screen, but a big screen that’s …

Mujjo Double-insulated Touchscreen Gloves – Review

A few days ago I mentioned the improved Mujjo touchscreen gloves. Pricey they might be (these ones here are €59.90 from the Mujjo website but they really are top-notch quality. These gloves have been a bestseller for Mujjo for quite a while, but they’ve recently improved these gloves …
