I’m using my AirPods more than any other earphones right now. They’re powerful, light and pair instantly with all my Apple devices. That said, I’m still finding it difficult to get used to how they look. Sure, for 99% of the time, I don’t see them. But every so often I’ll see my reflection while […]

Quite by accident, I realised today that it’s a month since I first wrote about having a pair of Apple’s hard-to-get AirPods. So, one month in, what do I think? The Positives I’ll say it now. The AirPods are fantastic for phone calls when I’m at my desk. I love being hands free, especially on […]

We’ve been waiting on the arrival of a pair of Apple AirPods in this household for several weeks. To cut a long story short, they were a much-delayed Christmas present for @FrankDJS and proved very elusive online and in-store. While I was passing the Regent Street Apple Store yesterday afternoon, I popped in on a […]

After a few weeks of daily use, it’s time to reflect on just how useful the Amazon Echo Dot really is. A hint? I now have two of them!

I only caught up on this news last night. It seems Pebble, maker of the super-useful and low-cost smart-watches, is gone. It’s been bought by Fitbit and will no longer sell its watches.

Although I’m an Apple Watch user, I’ve owned a Pebble in the past. I loved it – the battery lasted for days and days (compared to the roughly 24 hours of an Apple Watch), was easy to use and the developer community was great!

The only gadget I actually bought when we were in Japan in October was the Smart Keyboard for my 9.7″ iPad Pro. If you don’t read the remainder of this post, in terms of a review, I can only express my regret for not having picked one up months ago!

I’m going to admit something pretty difficult now. It’s something that’s been bothering me for a couple of weeks now, so this post will serve as a kind of confession. I really regret selling my Nexus 6P. You hear that? I’m sitting here, listening to a podcast on my iPhone 7 Plus and I’m pining after […]
