OnePlus 8 Series – Watch the live launch

Here in the UK, as we all sit in a lockdown situation, we’ve now got Disney+. Yay. Pixar, Star Wars, National Geographic and The Mandalorian. However, although it’s £5.99 a month (or £59.99 per year), they’re now offering a 7-day free trial, so you can dip your toe …

Home Active – Church and cathedral services online

During the cornavirus crisis, we’re continuing with our mission to keep you mentally and physically fit. At times like this, many will look to religion to cope. However, with the UK government advising against “social gatherings”, it’s going to become more difficult to run these. So, it’s good …

MWC – Live from Barcelona, the Honor launch

Right now, right at this minute, we should be in Barcelona. We should, as in years past, be soaking up at least 5 minutes of sunshine as we queue to enter the Fira de Barcelona Gran Via. Sadly, it all got cancelled and we’re instead stood in the …

How much data does your radio app really consume?

Best phones for sports streaming and browsing on the go

Of late, I’ve noticed (whilst out shopping) a lot of dads doing a sneaky bit of football-watching on their phones. With providers like Sky Sports now delivering streams to subscribers in many different ways, it’s easier than ever to watch – and we’re more likely to thanks to …

BritBox now launched in the UK

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 …

At last! Cast your Prime Video to Chromecast

Illegal streaming. Most people have no concern.

There was a time when people used to look down on online gambling. However, now it’s a perfectly acceptable pastime, especially when you consider the amount of online casinos and bingo sites. Some of these get advertised in the day too, and you’ll find that there’s a lot …

The benefits of using a VPN on your smartphone

OK, so you’re a bit worried browsing to certain places on your phone. If you’re using the work WiFi then they’ll be tracking you. If you’re using the free WiFi at the local coffee shop then, yes, they might be snooping. You can’t be sure that the information …
