Review: RhinoShield Protection for Your Phone

You have a gorgeous new phone with a perfect crystal clear screen. The last thing you want is any of those tiny little scratches fuzzing up your HD viewing area. But even the most careful person in the world finds it impossible to keep a screen totally scratch free. You only have to push it

Giveaway: Ely Series Wood Watch by JORD

Wow what an interesting bunch of readers I have! You came up with some fantastic ideas for what you would make out of wood if you had the opportunity. I was impressed that only one of you said “a fire”!!! The winner of the Ely Series Wood Watch by JORD, selected at random from all

Review: Wooden Watches by JORD – Earth, Soil, Land

Do you wear a time piece on your wrist? With office life being dictated very much by the clock, a watch is a necessary element of corporate uniform. For many people it is much more than that – it is a fashion accessory, a statement, a piece of art. Most watch cases and straps are

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: SIGG VIVA

A little while ago now SIGG changed me. Just a little bit. By introducing me to their “Ditch the Plastic” campaign they encouraged me to stop buying single-use plastic bottles of water in favour of carrying around one of their reusable aluminium bottles. Such a simple thing but something that makes an actual difference to

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: Readly

Subscription services are definitely one of the biggest things right now. Think Spotify and Netflix – all the music and television box sets you could possibly want in one place, available whenever and wherever you want thanks to your smartphone or tablet. And now we have Readly – the newest subscription service – offering access to over 400 weekly and

Review: Watchbot 3.0 Security Web Cam

I’ve always joked with friends on Twitter that I’d love to be able to spy on my bunnies when I’m out to see what they get up to. I think, like many pet owners, I dream that they might have a double life like they do in cartoons. You know what I mean, right?! A

Review: Delikatessen iPhone Cover from Tucano

I have tried out a fair few iPhone cases over the last couple of years and I have to say I think this new one I’ve been sent to review is one of my favourites. It is the Delikatessen from Tucano, and it has something I have never seen in gadget cases before – texture.

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: iPhone 5 Telescope Camera Lens

I love the convenience of my iPhone for taking photos. I love how I can hold it in my hand and grab a snap at any given moment. The quality isn’t bad either – fairly decent clarity and file size meaning I’ve been able to take part in a couple of photography exhibitions showing pictures

Head Up Display for Motorcyclists from Skully

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

Review: A Stylus with a Split Personality

Meet the Hex-Styli, a multi functional stylus that Mobile Fun reckons is one of the best on the market. They sent me one to try out. This six-in-one stylus has a omnidirectional stylus tip for accurate on-screen interaction, integrated ballpoint pen for jotting down notes, a printed ruler on the body, a built in spirit level, and a Phillips

Review: Nokia Lumia 925

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
