Review: Ghostek Atomic Waterproof iPhone Case

Knowing that I would be wanting to get full use out of my phone camera while I was away in North America, my friends at Mobile Fun sent me one of their new waterproof cases to try out. The Ghostek Atomic 2 is waterproof, dustproof and shock resistant, meaning you can stop worrying about what

Keeping Your iPad Safe | Review: STM Dux for iPad

What a wonderful invention the iPad is. I take mine everywhere. Especially when I travel. While my phone acts as my camera and my link to the outside world, my iPad provides me with hours of entertainment and a way to edit photos and update Splodz Blogz while on the move. But it’s fragile. So

Currently Loving: February 2016

It’s the first Monday of the month so it must be time for me to talk “stuff”. Since Christmas I’ve been making a real effort at home to reduce the amount of “stuff” in my house, and have taken several bag fulls to my local charity shop. But there is still a place for nice things, especially

Review: Lifedge “Ultimate Cable”

Lifedge, the company who made the absolutely awesome waterproof iPhone case, are back, and this time with an accessory that anyone who wants to keep their phone charged when out and about in potentially wet circumstances – a rugged lightning cable, or rather the “ultimate” cable!  Why might you want a rugged cable I hear you

Medical ID on your iPhone

I think it is fair to say that all of us would like to think that if you were involved in an emergency situation that rendered us somewhat incapable for a period, a decent human being passing by would do their best to help you in your time of need. One of the things that

Review: Brydge+ Keyboard for iPad

My latest gadget accessory has caused a lot of interest. It’s only a keyboard for my iPad, but I’ve even heard “wow” and I’ve been asked so many times where I got it.  Brydge Keyboards, originally a Kickstarter project but now under new ownership (who have ironed out some of the new product issues), have designed a bluetooth

Review: Naztech Vault Waterproof Case for iPhone

I love getting out and about, and on a normal day the weather won’t make any difference to that. Having some protection for my iPhone, which never leaves my side, when it’s raining is an absolute must. Knowing I always get rained on when I go away on my motorbike (it’s a given), and loving to

Review: Nokia Lumia 1320

Following my review of the Nokia Lumia 925 I was given an opportunity to try out another one of Nokia’s smartphone offerings – the Lumia 1320. I was loaned a bright yellow one to try out for a couple of weeks. As all my reviews here on Splodz Blogz are based on my own personal

Review: Wrappz Personalised iPhone 5 Case

Personalised bits and bobs make great present ideas; Wrappz specialise in personalised skins and cases for phones, tablets, e-readers and other similar things – and the simple online user interface means it is an absolute doddle to create a unique product for yourself or someone else. Wrappz got in touch to see if I’d like

Review: Sour Patch Kids Soda Popz

A little while ago I was sent some of the new Sour Patch Kids sweets to review here on Splodz Blogz; and I fell in love. They were the first properly sour sweet I’ve tried for a long time – properly ‘shoots lips’ sour to start with, turning a lovely fruity sweet flavour as you

Review: Belkin Pleat Sleeve for iPad

I honestly don’t know what I would do without my iPad. I bought it on the day the iPad2 launched, for the simple reason that I really (really) wanted one. Since that day it has been so well used I’m surprised it’s not worn out (it certainly looks well used!). I use it for everything:

Review: iPhone 5 Dock from Mobile Fun

Docks are designed to allow you to sync and charge your phone while it is sat upright on your desk or bedside table. This one (showing off my very dusty iPhone!) is from Mobile Fun. The dock is good for charging and syncing your phone with your computer, as well as plugging into the mains
