LG L7 P700 Smartphone – Review

0

LG have recently had lots of attention on their official arrival to the Google party with the Nexus 4, but they’ve been with Android for a while now and have launched some handsets that have been fairly popular, especially in their native South Korea. One of LG’s latest , the Optimus L7 takes a seat at the mid-range and has a lot going for it considering it’s sub-£180 price. Hopefully there’s more to this handset than it’s slightly unimaginative name!

Yarvik Zania 10ic Tablet – Quick Look

1

Until Recently cheap Android tablets were a bit of a half-baked option and didn’t exactly show off the operating system in it’s best light.  The lesser known Dutch brand Yarvik has been responsible for some fairly average tablets until recently.  Some of their newer offerings such as the 10″ Zania have Google Play included and are considerably better finished. I took a quick look at one to see how it faired.

Dishonored – Review (PC)

0

As you may know if you’ve read my other articles on gaming, it takes a lot for me to get excited by a game. Dishonored has been described as ‘steam punk’ with a unique art style and whilst I’d been intrigued by previews of Dishonored at E3 2011 it had seemingly come out of nowhere, so I thought I’d give it a go. To push the Unreal engine to it’s best I reviewed it on PC.

Edifier Aurora 2.1 Speakers – Review

0

In 2006 Edifier was a Chinese start-up that came with promises of high-end consumer audio products.  Unlike the pile of Chinese brand-names you’ve never have heard of, they differentiated themselves from the native competition with a balance of audio clarity and intelligent design.  They’ve grown to become a real competitor to Jap and US audio manufacturers with an increasingly recognisable brand.

Motorola RAZR i – Review

1

Intel came pretty late to the smartphone party with the highly under-sold Orange ‘San Diego’ handset, which despite good specs made virtually no impact on UK smartphone sales. Their second UK handset is the Motorola RAZR i on which Intel has worked closely with Motorola to ensure this second try doesn’t fall short.  x86 processing on Android may have been given the opportunity to shine with this latest addition to the RAZR family.

I still haven’t fully adopted ‘The Cloud’

0

The term ‘Cloud’ computing gets thrown around a lot these days, particularly by IT professionals wanting to sound important by spouting the latest buzz word.  Though you may not realise it, almost everyone using the internet accesses cloud computing in one form or another. I’m not totally sold on uploading all my digital content and forgoing physical media, here’s why.

Apple iPhone 5 – Review

0

It’s probably the most rumoured and anticipated handset ever, at least since the day after the 4s was released to a tepid applause.  It’s taller, lighter, thinner and has a couple of other little tweaks, but these are not necessarily the features that have caught the public’s attention and so far the iPhone 5 has received a pretty rough ride from press and increasingly technologically educated consumers.

Is the UK welcoming 4G too soon?

1

Last week EE (Everything Everywhere) announced their new 4G services and a range of shiny new 4G phones that would be supporting it.  Vodafone and O2 weren’t so happy as they’ve been left out of the initial roll-out of the UK’s new super fast mobile broadband due to spectrum differences. Should they really be battling it out for 4G yet, or concentrate on strengthening the existing patchy 3G service?

RaspberryPi ‘Pibow’ Case – Quick Look

0

You may have heard of a little British designed mini-pc called the Raspberry Pi, an ARM powered GNU/Linux box that has revolutionised the home-brew programming market in a way that hasn’t been seen since the early days of Arduino.  Unfortunately I still haven’t been able to get my hands on a ‘RasPi’ as many are calling it but I did get a peak at the the ‘Pibow’ case which is possibly the coolest and simplest way you would want to contain your own.

Motorola Xoom 2 10.1 Wi-Fi – Review

1

By now it should be evident that I am a supporter of Android, but even I know the experiences can vary greatly. Over the last few weeks I’ve been taking a look at the Motorola Xoom 2 to see how it compares to the original Xoom as well as other tablet devices. Motorola seems to be heading in the right direction and unlike many tablets currently available it has taken a clearly different design directive, but is there much more to this tablet than that?

The @JudgeLucyKoh Experiment

0

I have followed the patent battles between Apple and a myriad of other manufacturers very closely over the last couple of years, and as the war intensified I decided to take a dip in the pool of Twitter rage to gauge people’s reaction to it.  To do this I set up an account under the name of Judge Lucy Koh, the renowned judge who made some rather spurious decisions in the court rooms of Northern California.
