Urbanears Humlan Review, The Price of Practicality

This is the tale of one girl and her plethora of headphones, and it’s probably not too dissimilar to some of yours, that is if you can’t walk around in public without your iPod blaring at any point of the day. What? I'm shy.

iRig UA Review: Finally I can Shred on Android..

When IK Multimedia announced the iRig 2 and its compatibility with Android I was over the moon. Finally I thought I'd be able to make the most of AmpliTube on my Android smartphone. Unfortunately that wasn't the case as despite the devices compatibility with some Android devices, AmpluTube was still limited to just Samsung smartphones. That doesn't mean there aren't any decent alternatives because there are, but you want to make the most of IK's software, right?

HP Chromebook 14 Feature

HP Chromebook 14 Review

With Chromebooks becoming increasingly popular and can be found at most electrical retailers such as Argos. The HP Chromebook is the latest edition to the Chromebook line and can be bought for as little as £249.99, today we're taking a look at the new HP Chromebook 14, which is available in 'White' (basically silver), Turqoise, and Peach. Of course, we were sent the lovely bright Peach variant with DataPass, so how did it perform?
LG G4 1

LG G4 Review: LG Have Done it Again..

LG have been facing increasingly stiff competition in the mobile market as of late. With Apple having the ability to release any old tat and have millions flocking to their stores; Samsung deciding that bloatware really isn't a good selling point; and HTC who have repeatedly been awarded the best Android device; LG has a lot cut out for them, but with the LG G4 I think they've done it.
Jabra Tag 2

Jabra Tag Bluetooth Mobile Headset Review.

Wires are the bane of my life. They're never long enough, they always get tangled up, and I can never get my phone out of my pocket to change the track or press the button quick enough to answer a call. That's where the Jabra Tag comes in. This dog-tag style Bluetooth mobile headset aims to tackle the fight that I have with unnecessary wires everywhere as well as offering a way to easily control music and my smartphone at the push of a button.

Google Chromecast Review, A Tiny Device with Big Possibilities.

Google's Chromecast has been available for some time now in both North America and the UK but I've only recently, over the past couple of months, taken the plunge and purchased Google's £30 HDMI dongle for myself. I'm pretty new to the set-top-box party and in I come with something that couldn't quite be considered as such, but what I use it for is more than suitable. Google's Chromecast is a streaming device which requires you to think differently, much like Google's Chromebooks and hopefully in this review I'll help you understand what I mean.

Neato Botvac 85 Robot Vacuum Review, The Vacuum Cleaner that Changed...

I absolutely love how technology has progressed over the past decade, not only is tech getting smaller and more useful, it's also helping us become more productive and replacing the menial tasks that take up valuable time in our day. Whether it's washing up or vacuuming, these tasks may only take us about fifteen minutes to do, but that accumulates over our lifetime, so wouldn't it be nice to have that precious time back? Also, I'm ridiculously lazy so I'd rather have a robot or a machine do as much as possible so I don't have to. That's where the Neato Botvac 85 comes in. And let me tell you, it's changed my life.
JUMP Cable 2

Native Union JUMP Cable Review

Last month Native Union introduced the worlds first 2-in-1 smartphone battery and charging cable offering the ability to not only use your phone as you would any ordinary cable, but also the ability to charge your smartphone on the go. We all know that we're lucky if our smartphones last longer than 6/7pm - or a lot less depending on usage - so having a bit of extra juice on hand is definitely a plus and the JUMP cable from Native Union is the ideal accompaniment to any smartphone.

View Quest Retro Radio Review.

I'm not one to listen to the radio other than when I'm in the car but then I'm very limited to local FM radio stations or the bigger national stations like BBC Radio 1. Apparently DAB Radio is the future of radio broadcasts so we grabbed a hold of the View Quest Retro Radio so I'm going to share my thoughts on this great looking bit of tech!

View Quest Hepburn DAB+ Digital Radio Review, How Radios Should be...

Radios have become much more than just simple FM stereo systems limited to just one function. Now they come with DAB or DAB+ capabilities, the option to dock your iPod or iPhone and even the option to connect your devices via Bluetooth. It's now becoming increasingly overwhelming when looking for something to simply play a standard radio station, and the View Quest Hepburn doesn't make that decision any easier. With all of the bells and whistles that you'll find on a high spec digital radio, how well does it perform?

The Polar RCX5 GPS-Enabled Sport’s Watch Review

I wouldn't exactly call myself a fitness buff, but occasionally I'll get a spring in my step and feel pro-active about doing some form of exercise. For me "exercise" consists of walking the dog for longer, going on a bike ride, or spending an hour or so doing lengths in the swimming pool and they're all great but I'm a numbers guy, I want to see whether my effort is paying off not just feel it the next morning when I can't move.

Most fitness trackers rely on one main feature, the pedometer, anyone can pick it up and use it with the results based on calculations which take into account your physical stats such as heigh and weight. But pedometers are prone to mistakes and calculations are based on guesswork. I wanted something that told me how I was doing based on my body, not how many steps I'd done. That's why I opted to check out the Polar RCX5 GPS-Enabled Sports Watch
Avantree Hive

Avantree Hive Wireless Headphones Review

A general rule that has seemed to follow me for many years is that me and headphones do not get on. At all. Whether it be one headphone dropping sound altogether, wires becoming frayed and broken or headphones straight up falling apart I've seen it all. It would seem that I've found an answer to my problems in a pair of Avantree Hive headphones...
