The all-new Xiaomi handheld you won’t see anywhere else

After getting my 8 thousandth email from TomTop.com today I thought I’d spotted a new Xiaomi phone. Sadly no, it’s a nail clipper. Not just any nail clipper though, oh no. This is an “anti-splash defence spatter nauil knife 420”. Yowser. For just £5.75 you can this anti-rust …

Moto G8 Power Review – Part 1

Newton Mail to return from the ashes

Back in December 2016, I reviewed a unified e-mail solution called Newton Mail, and for me Newton Mail was just perfect. You see, my current email solution is in a right mess. I’ve got three email accounts all syncing to my devices. Two are Gmail based, and one …

Pimp my horn!

I have a very mad belief that there’s a direct correlation between the quality of a car and the sound of a car horn. Get in a Fiat Cinquecento and sound the horn. You’re gonna hear a “meep”. However, get yourself in a big Merc and you’ll gear …

Cowboy sees record sales increase during the lockdown

One thing, at least here in the UK, that we’ve been able to do during the lockdown is exercise. Now, whilst there’ll be some hardcore cyclists (like myself) who will frown at e-bikes, they’re a great solution for many. The guys at Cowboy bikes have announced that their …

Ditching Sky. Life after cancellation with Netgem TV.

I’ve had Sky TV installed for about 15 years. I’ve seen it grow from a normal satellite TV box to a “timeshifting” one and then, as on-demand TV increased in popularity, we got more choice and flexibility than ever. However, we consume TV differently now. There’s a huge …

Working from home could last for a lot longer

Good morning lockdown crew. Hope you’re well. Yesterday, and for the first time in a while, I found myself in a couple of local shops. There’s a mixture of coronavirus changes, with the local Co-op implementing a “one way only” and “one in, one out” system and keeping …

Vissles-W 3-in-1 wireless charger – Review

Charging your techy stuff is still a messy nightmare. It becomes even worse when you buy additional gadgets. It’s not just your phone any more, oh no – now you’ve got a watch and some headphones to charge too. Cables all over your kitchen? Your bedroom? Elsewhere? It’s …

Vodafone launch an IOT Thermal Camera

Those who have been with us for a while may remember the Seek Thermal Camera. I looked at it a few years ago and you can buy it right here and it just plugs into your phone so that you can see heat and cold. For those who …

Virgin Media and O2 look to merge?

Virgin Media, which is actually “Virgin” purely in name because they’re actually Liberty Global, could be merging with O2 soon. O2, as you may remember, was the target of a Three attempted purchase some years ago. Whilst the BT purchase of EE was given the green light, Hutchison …
