Motorcyclists! How often have you been on a journey and got lost? Come off the motorway at the wrong junction? Watched your mate take a turning you didn’t think was right? For those of us without a TomTom Rider or similar already, here’s a new idea from Skully – a helmet with a brand new
For the last three weeks I have swapped my beloved iPhone for a very shiny Nokia Lumia 925, which I’ve had on loan from Nokia to try out. It’s been an interesting test, starting with incredible frustration over not being able to find anything or type simple words using the keyboard, to actually feeling a
I imagine most people have come across the problem, or at least know of it: the dreaded nuisance telephone call. We get around 4-6 each day to our BT landline, but very rarely to either of our mobiles, perhaps due to the higher cost of calling a mobile phone. We have caller ID, and some
Do you like my new iPhone case? It’s rather professional looking don’t you think? Very clean lines, and a lovely creamy grey colour. It’s the Seejacket Flap Plus Leather Case by Artwizz (in dark grey) that I recently received from MyTrendyPhone.co.uk to review. The case is a solid flip-style grey leather with soft brushed interior. The phone
Following the experiences of a number of our motorbike trips over the years, being sent a completely waterproof pouch for my phone to review was incredibly useful – thanks Mobile Fun! And, as expected but not wanted, when we woke up on Tuesday last week and it was teeming it down I reached for my
Taking photos on our phones is quick, simple and can be instantly shared with others. The fact that cameras on mobile phones are now of a pretty decent standard we have more opportunity to capture moments as they happen without needing to carry around a “proper” camera – and we can keep and even print
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
One of the problems with upgrading to the iPhone 5 or the new iPad is that because Apple changed to their new lightning connection, using old accessories requires new cables or adapters (or new accessories entirely). Whether you believe lightning is genuinely better (faster, smaller, etc) or that it’s just an exercise to make our old accessories defunct, the
Communication – I’m not sure much communication will be occurring in this telephone box.

I spotted this in a tweet today and wow, I want one. Pebble is a watch that you can customise by installing your choice of apps, and that connects to your smartphone (iOS or Android) using bluetooth. With a high resolution e-paper display (like you get on Kindle) it promises to be sharp and very
The Vodafone 858 Smart is a Vodafone branded smart phone running Android 2.2. When you think smart phone you may well think iPhone – and if you were to compare those to this you would be very disappointed. But of course this phone is not designed to be anything like the market leaders. This is
I love gadgets. Gadgets are brilliant. But sometimes my gadgets just don’t last long enough on their battery life. Duracell has introduced a range of new personal power products, designed to help us go beyond the usual limits of our devices. The range includes portable chargers, battery chargers, rechargeable batteries and long life disposable batteries.
The other day I posted a police information video that has been made to discourage texting whilst driving. I hope you watched it (and took heed). I was tweeted with a link to this… perfect for a Friday, it’s a more lighthearted way of sharing the same message. You’ll be singing along! Thanks @maddie273 –
A powerful video showing the possible consequences of texting and driving. Don’t do it. It can wait. And while we’re at it… please always wear your seatbelt.
