Proper news coverage is dead.

I’ve written previously about the state of our news. It’s become twisted, unsubstantiated, click-bait nonsense which – for the most part – is only ever put online or in print to annoy, generate clicks and increase ad revenues. Thanks to the advice of Presidents, global leaders, Facebook and …

How AI is revolutionizing mobile technology

There’s a bit of a problem with the smartphone market right now. The clever technology that used to set each manufacturer apart is now easier to get, easier to duplicate and cheaper to buy. Because of this, the average smartphone buyer sees many different phones with similar designs …

The Micro Drone 4.0 – Now fully funded

Carrying a drone around is a bit of a faff, however – if its small then you can slip it in your pocket and it makes it a much easier proposition. The guys behind Micro Drone have now had Micro Drone V4.0 fully funded on Indiegogo but wait… …

Huawei are playing with the power of AI again…

Last year we reported that Huawei was using the AI technology that they had developed for the Kirin 970. That time around they were using the AI to help a car recognise and then take action to avoid the objects. We were able to actually see this in the …

Honor View20 – Review

I’ll be honest, Huawei and Honor seem to be cranking up the handset launches to a rate where I’m losing track slightly. Honor, let’s not forget, is a sub-brand of Huawei. You get the same quality, the same Huawei processor and the same user interface, albeit with a …

A scary new world of holographic companions. It’s here now.

Before I say anything, watch this video. Soak it in. Look at the grin on the face of the guy.. It’s more than a little creepy, however this virtual lady seems to be proving quite popular. They call it / her, the “Gatebox” in the PR email. “She’ll …

Huawei launch AI Cube and Locator – IFA2018

So alongside the new Kirin980 chipset that was announced today at Huawei’s Keynote their were two IOT based products, the AI Cube and the Locator Firstly let’s look at the Huawei  AI Cube. This is a 4G Router which also doubles as a powerful Soundsystem and AI speaker. This is what …

Honor 10 – Review

This is a confusing one, but it’s confusing in a good way. The price of this, and possibly the brand, should scream “mid-range” at you. It really should. We’re kinda hard-wired to see phones costing less than £400 as perhaps sub-standard. Perhaps it’s because those really high-end, top-of-the-range …

Honor 10 Flagship – The Launch

In all honesty we just couldn’t afford the train fare to London for this one as we’re prioritising the costs of our servers (we’re running a donation drive right now if you can help) and we’re properly gutted about it. Why? Well, Honor have been rocking the smartphone …

The LG G7 ThinQ is finally launched

Well, where do I start here? We saw the LG G7 ThinQ back in February at Mobile World Congress. It was all a bit weird, because they displayed it around the back of the stand, supposedly to invite-only people, but then didn’t stop said people taking lots of …

#MWC18 -Huawei push their AI tech further …. into a car!!

We all know that the dawn of self-driving cars is rapidly approaching, Tesla is pushing the boundaries every day. I have driven the new Nissan Leaf with Pro-Pilot and my standard battlecruiser (aka VW Passat Estate) has got the basics of it in the form of auto cruise …

#MWC18 – The key Samsung Galaxy S9 features

When this handset arrives in store and sits next to the existing Galaxy S8, if we’re honest, you won’t be able to see a huge amount of difference. In all honesty, like when the iPhone 8 replaced the iPhone 7, that’s no bad thing. The design is proven, …

#MWC18 – Is it the LG G7? No, but we do get an LG V30S

One thing we won’t be seeing here in Barcelona (and yes, I’ve made it!) is the all-new LG G7. I’ve owned quite a few LG handsets – the G6 is a big favourite of mine and I held onto the LG G4 for absolutely ages. Loved that. The …

(Update) Welcome your new look. The Honor View 10

Honor have today launched their now familiar “well priced but still very, very good” handset in the shape of the Honor 7X. However, if you want to spend £449.99 and get some artificial intelligence, have a look at this – the new Honor View 10. It doesn’t look …

OPPO Launches the F5, complete with Expert Selfie AI

Chinese phone manufacturer OPPO has unveiled the Oppo F5. This new device is turning mobile photography on its head, with a 16 MP shooter on the rear and a 20 MP shooter on the front. The F5 features what the company are calling “groundbreaking A.I. Beauty Recognition technology”. Yes, a technology apparently designed to personalise …

Say hello to Samantha, the AI robot that you can make love to.

She comes equipped with artificial intelligence and has a stack of sensors embedded inside too. This new sex robot can also listen to you and will reply back. However, the “human feeling skin”, as ITV presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield comment in the video below, is cold …

Huawei – Teasers on the next big announcement?

OK, I’m going to open this one out to the floor as we only have a couple of bits of information. It looks like Huawei are giving us some news about what their next smartphone might contain. Here’s the tweets we’ve spotted, and the first one – posted …
