#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 – 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 …

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 …

How to keep your kids mobile safe

As you may have realised by the sheer age of this website, I’m old enough to remember when there simply were no phones in school. I grew up in an age when there was a First School, a Middle School and a High School. At no time did …

New Android vulnerability allows fake installer screens

NTONPOWER 8-Socket Extension and 5 USB charger – Review

At home you’ll probably have an extension lead. It’s probably behind your TV and you’ll have loads of things plugged in. Secretly you’ll probably not be completely sure what plug does what, or whether you need all those plugs at all. Then you’ll have a charger for your …

AVG on your mobile – it does a lot more than you’d think

Let’s be honest. If you’re buying an Android phone then, if you’re careful and don’t install much, you’re probably not going to be bothered by viruses or other nasties. However, looking at my son’s phone, he’s definitely not careful, and when I’m rushing to find an app to …

Protecting your teenager against sexting

When I was in my teens, smartphones weren’t really a “thing”. Sure, we had mobile phones, but they were big clunky things and you couldn’t even text on them unless you paid for the texting “service”. Plus, they were pretty much confined to older people, not “grandpa” old, …

Back in March at Gadget Show live, I met up with the guys from Dog & Bone, who had an array of convenient accessories for those who like adventure and technology. Well, the lovely people at Dog & Bone sent us two of their Bluetooth locks, namely LockSmart …

Tech Armor Privacy Screen Protector – Review

First, a big hello to Lawrence Daniels. He’s the PR guy for Tech Armor. Now, apart from their company name obviously being incorrect (it should, of course, be Tech Armour), they’re pretty good as a company. I partially have to say that because they sent this particular screen …

Cases – I’m starting to change my mind

Sometimes I try to hide it, but quickly people realise that I have a bit of a “thing” about phones and, invariably, I get asked lots of questions. “What phone should I have next? Is this one any good?” This. This I get asked a lot. Once I …
