0

I’ve never considered myself particularly fashionable, and usually I leave the house with my pockets bulging with the gadgets, bits and pieces I need.  I don’t carry around a tablet as much as I perhaps would like and so when I was afforded the opportunity to look at the new STM Scout 2 10″  tablet bag, I thought I better give this ‘man bag’ a thorough going over!

Vodafone Mobile Wi-Fi – Review

1

If you are anything like me you are likely a slave to technology –  I can often be seen with multiple devices in my possesion at one time, be it tablets, smartphones or other gadgets that rely on a sturdy internet connection.  A lot of carriers would love to sell you an individual SIM & contract for each 3G device, but in the last couple of years “Mobile Wi-Fi” devices have appeared that provide a very appealing solution to your hungry data requirements.

Blackberry Curve 9320 – Review

0

I’ve used all sorts of phones over the last few years, but ever since my Sony Ericsson slide-phone I’ve not diverted my attentions far from Android.  Fast forward to last week and I was given the chance to look at the Blackberry Curve 9320 by the generous folks over at Vodafone.  As I’ve never had proper hands-on time with a Blackberry I jumped at the opportunity to see why they still are such popular phones.

What Apple doesn’t understand, Heinz does

0

Recently you haven’t been able to turn your head in the circles of tech without bumping in to articles detailing the patent mud-slinging between various companies, but mostly they can be traced back to Apple and their simple disregard for innovation, sharing of ideas and quite simply, not being the only recognisable brand in the mainstream world of technology.

Canon Ixus 220 HS

1

Canon have been touting the “Ixus” brand on it’s range of digital compact cameras since all the way back in 1996, only 4 years after Canon introduced it’s first ever digital camera. The Ixus brand quickly became synonymous with quality but very compact digital cameras that would suit the pockets of semi-professionals, amateurs and anyone else in between.

Why do I get bored of games so quickly?

0

It was Christmas 1990. I had just got my breath back after running round my parents house at break-neck speed to celebrate my elation at receiving the toy of my dreams – The Nintendo Game Boy. Having been launched just 3 months prior to Christmas, Nintendo had given me just enough time to marvel in the latest copy of Games-Master magazine at what I hoped ‘Father Christmas’ would bring me.

Hundreds of AA batteries later I was completely hooked on the new generation of console gaming.

HTC Titan and HTC Radar – First Impressions.

0

htc-titan-front-left-carbon-greyIt’s been a massive year for the Android platform;  mammoth sales have bolstered the platform to outnumber the iPhone in the vast majority of territories. HTC have been at the forefront of this attack, showing great support for Google’s OS by bringing out countless devices for the platform. Elsewhere we have Windows Phone 7, a solid platform, marred by a  lack of attention from consumers and manufacturers. This however may well change with the latest from HTC.

There’s no stopping the Android train

0

There’s no getting away from it, Android is an unstoppable force that is backed by some of the biggest hardware manufacturers around.  Because of it being the OS of choice for all new phones from HTC, Samsung, Motorola, LG and more, it’s rocketed it’s little green behind to the top of the mobile tree in relatively little time.

In the process Symbian is being dropped by manufacturers left and right, whilst Samsung hasn’t whole heartedly got behind it’s own Bada operating system, which never really presented much of a threat to anyone.  Dare we even mention MeeGo?

Apple iPhone 4 – Long Term Review

0

Even though it was launched in June of 2010,  most believe it is safe to assume the iPhone4 is still the pinnacle of integration between high end mobile hardware and software, despite leaving most users rather mobile-obsessive as a consequence. Credit is due for Apple’s ability to supply a consistent stream of software updates and new hardware releases to keep some of us wanting more.

3

On the beautifully sunny Easter bank holiday Monday I finally managed to sniff out a source of stock of the Asus Eee Pad TF101 at an electrical megastore at Cribbs Causeway in Bristol.  

Ever since I first got a hands on with the device at this year’s Gadget Show Live, I knew it was a great alternative to the Motorola Xoom, coming in £100 cheaper at £379.  The added bonus of the keyboard dock was the final piece that sold it to me.  Unfortunately, no keyboard docks seem to be currently available, so expect pictures of that when we do a full review of the device…

Portal 2 – Review

0

Valve has been at the forefront of quality first person shooters for years now, but fans are often disappointed at the relatively low release rate of new titles.

You can however always count on the Washington-based studio to release a quality title that will grip you for days or even weeks to come. Their latest title, Portal 2 is another Steam-driven first-person puzzle game that is of incredibly high standard… Just a shame that their promises of cake have so far gone unfounded…
