Vonda Barnes’ Top 5 Apps

0

untitled-shoot-0576Coming from a background in music you would think I’d be fluent in music apps and all manner of social media. However my band, Madasun were predominantly around before the age of Facebook and Twitter, and this new social scene hit faster than any of us could imagine.

I’ve had to catch up with a world of apps, but now they’re a part of my daily life.

iPhone 5c, 5s and iOS7 put to the test

1

IMG_4342Apple’s been busy maintaining their perceived lead over other mobiles by updating the design of iOS and releasing new phones that aren’t particularly innovative, but have the beautiful finish and smooth operation that will keep the faithful happy for a while to come. I’ve combined my experiences with the new iPhone 5c and 5s, and delved into what sets iOS 7 apart in one review; so get comfortable and read on.

Pioneer XW-SMA4-K Wireless Speaker

0

IMG_4043 copyWelcome one and all to yet another full-featured speaker-dock review here at TechNow where we are looking at something else from Pioneer, but this one’s a bit of a beast. As you may know, we love having choice, and this dock is slathered with ways to connect your tech to it. The SMA4 is going to have to do a lot more than be handy with WiFi to have me sold. I am going to delve deep into the sound and see what makes it tick.. tick.. BOOM. Ahem.

Kingston MobileLite Wireless

1

IMG_3927 copyYou might not have a portable charger or a wireless card reader yet, but with increasing abundance of electrically dependent tech in your bag there’s reasons you may need both.  Battery tech still holds back a full day of heavy use on a smartphone and many new phones are coming without any form of expandable storage.  The Kingston MobileLite Wireless tackles both these problems in one portable device.  Do you need one? Read on to find out.

SwannSmart ADS-450 network camera

0

IMG_3605 copyThe last time I looked at a Swann product it was the well made Outback cam – something that has become a device of great interest to me since my involvement in providing them for use in the Big Cat Study in the UK.  The SwannSmart I.P. camera is something slightly different, but more useful as a home security and monitoring device.  You might use it (like I did), to monitor pets or people when you’re away from home, or simply to provide an alternative to a fully blown CCTV system – but is it any good? Let’s take a look.

Pebble Smartwatch Review

0

IMG_3571 copyAfter it’s record breaking $10M of funding on Kickstarter, it was evident that Pebble was coming in at just the right time to be relevant.  I knew I wanted a smartwatch the minute I started reading through the list of functions and the fact that it was made by like minded people that knew their product, their market and wanted to have a fully transparent process from start to finish. Yes, there are the likes of the Sony’s smart watches, but because they insist on going for glitzy colour screens, the battery-life is next to useless and they’ve put in nowhere near as much thought when it comes to designing a ‘life-proof’ watch.

Libratone Zipp Portable WiFi Speaker

0

IMG_0183 copyThe hot new thing in the realm of speakers is wireless, and a very good thing indeed. My home audio setup went wireless at Christmas and I haven’t looked back but what to do when I’m out and about? As we all know, phone speakers don’t really cut it when sharing your music. A powerful wireless speaker would be the perfect answer here. To answer this need, here comes the Libratone Zipp.

Why do third party App stores exist on Android?

0

I’ve taken a look at quite a few Android handsets over the last few months and one thing that I’ve come up against over and over again is the plethora of manufacturer-branded app stores that pointlessly spoil the coherence of the Android experience.  In the early days when Google’s app experience was no where close to that of iOS, you would forgive the of Samsung for being cautious and including a third party store to bolster the quality of the app availability to users.

You may recognise Honestech for their media conversion and archiving devices, but they’ve taken a move towards the growing market of streaming media over a network with the nScreen Deluxe.  It connects to a range of mobile devices with a bespoke app as well as PC mirroring capability – If that sounds like an intriguing prospect then read on.

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.

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.

Gadget Show Live 2011 – Our Highlights

1

This week the Birmingham NEC played host to the 3rd Gadget Show Live exhibition.  The show was expanded this year with a much larger gaming hall and proper food facilities meaning not so many of the horrendous lines as there was last year!

The crowd also welcomed the return of the ‘Super Theatre’ Live show where the well known faces of the Channel 5 show came out to emulate the capers of their television series and please the crowd…
