I’ve wanted a smartwatch for a very long time now, and though I was initially set upon having an Apple Watch, my move to Android convinced me otherwise. I spent a reasonable amount of time diving through the vast ocean of available Android Wear watches, having decided that no, I did not want a hybrid smartwatch such as the Nokia Steel or something from the Fossil Q range.

I’m used to using wired earbuds, but my old pair of Apple’s own that came with my iPhone 5S have begun to become one-sided and crackly, which is not what you want when you’re an avid consumer of media like myself. I began to search for wireless earbuds as I’m conscious that my next smartphone may not have the 3.5mm headphone jack I have become so dependent on.

I’ve been using the Google Pixel for a few months now, and while I do love it, it requires a couple of tweaks to make it perfect. I’ve learned a couple of tips and tricks that I want to share with you. Bear in mind these tips are written specifically for the Pixel but most will work with other Android phones too (I’m sorry Apple and Windows Phone users, but I don’t have any tips for you as of yet). Continue reading Ultra Power Saver and more… Tips for the Google Pixel and other Android Phones
The Chromecast. A simple concept, but one that is wildly useful and goes along nicely with the rise in online streaming services. The idea is that you can use the Chromecast to stream content from a mobile device to your TV. Pretty standard stuff, right? However, the Chromecast isn’t as plain as it might seem… Continue reading Streaming Made Easy – Google’s Chromecast
Having used the SteelSeries Apex RAW as my keyboard for many years, I decided that I wasn’t a fan of the amount of noise it made. Sure, it was a chiclet keyboard, but it was still way too loud for my tastes and I wanted to try using a mechanical keyboard for the first time. After doing some hunting around, I came across the Corsair Strafe RGB keyboard with Cherry MX Silent switches. Obviously, I had to try it out, so I went to a local electronics store and was immediately impressed by the build quality of the keyboard. After pressing a few keys on the display model I asked about buying one. They weren’t in stock. Continue reading Silent but Deadly… Corsair’s Strafe RGB MX Silent
I’ve been playing around with the Google Home for a little while now, getting to know its capabilities and downfalls. Having been a massive Google user for a long time, I just knew I had to try one of these new smart speakers out.
This is Google’s first smart speaker device and was the second well-known smart speaker on the market, following Amazon’s Alexa. Of course, Apple is now entering the market with the new HomePod, meaning die-hard Apple fans will be turning away from the Android-favouring Google Home. Continue reading Is the Google Home just an unwanted guest?
The Blue Yeti is said to be one of the best USB microphones money can buy. Aside from its quality, one of the Yeti’s advantages over the typical XLR microphones is its ‘plug-and-play’ feature – you don’t need to mess around with anything else, you can just plug the USB into your PC and start recording amazing sound instantly. Continue reading Is the Blue Yeti really the best USB Microphone out there?
While it might not be the most expensive or flashy mouse on the market, Mad Catz’s R.A.T. Tournament Edition is definitely not something you’ll want to skip over in the hardware store. Continue reading Is the Mad Catz R.A.T. TE too cheap?
So, Google recently released their newest innovation – the Pixel. The Pixel is the first smartphone designed by Google in-house, unlike the Nexus range which has more designing companies than I have had smartphones in my lifetime.
I will freely admit that I was uncertain whether or not I wanted to buy the Pixel when it came around to getting a new phone. Having always been an Apple user, you could say that the idea of having to use an Android phone wasn’t particularly enticing. Continue reading Google’s Pixel – A New Player or Just a Speck of Colour?
