Griffin S8 Survivor Strong Case

Griffin S8 Survivor Strong Case

Last week we looked at Griffin’s Survivor Clear case for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and it did a decent job of being a protective cover while still not concealing the phone within. For most people that enough but what about if you&#8217…

Aukey Active Noise Cancelling Headset

Aukey Active Noise Cancelling Headset

Samsung Galaxy S8

Samsung Galaxy S8

The iPad (2017/Fifth generation)

I switched from my old iPad to the new iPad a few weeks ago. It was a pleasant upgrade, delivering exactly what I had been expecting. Better sound, better screen, better feel and came with a better (lower) price tag. An iPad isn’t…

Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear Wireless Headphones

Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear Wireless Headphones

I’m not a huge fan of wireless headphones. I love the idea and I’ve tried quite a few, but I always switch back to wired in-ear headphones, my favourite being Sennheiser’s M2IEG Momentum, reviewed as excellent last year…

Lenovo Tab 3 10.1 Inch Tablet

I’ve used Android for many years but despite dalliances with a Nexus 7 and a couple of smaller Fire Tablets I have a confession. The tablets I actually use? If I’m using apps or watching TV I use an iPad and…

Aukey USB C Power Bank 30000mAh

I love my Nintendo Switch and when I got it last month among my first purchases was a case. Taking it on the road I was unsurprised to discover it could only go for two or three hours. The second thing I needed was a…

FreedomPop with the V7 Zyro

FreedomPop with the V7 Zyro

Many years ago when I bought my first Kindle from Amazon it came with an extra hidden feature. The e-reader used the 2g network at the time to create what it called a whispernet. This let you use the built in browser for free…

Choetech Current Voltage Monitor Cable

Early on a Sunday morning I got a Facebook message – would you like to review our new voltage monitor cable? In my pre-coffee state I said yes and a few days later had the cable in my hands – remind me again why…

iClever IC-BTS08 Wireless Speaker

iKlips DUO Flash Drive Review

iKlips DUO Flash Drive Review

The Apple ecosystem has an awful lot to recommend it. Classy design, security, quality manufacture and a huge selection of software. A word that doesn’t often go with Apple is expandability. Adam Elements are an Apple certified manufacturer that make a possible solution…

Lumsing Grand A2 Power Bank Review

Doxie Q Scanner Review

Doxie Q Scanner Review

The first 10 years of my adult life I lived on my own and had a bad habit of keeping every piece of paper that I accumulated. From electric bills to flyers to work memo’s I kept it all. When my daugher was…
