Pure Orla Kiely Evoke Mio DAB Radio Review

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

While I still don’t fully appreciate radio, with the likes of Spotify providing most of my daily audio entertainment, I’ve always appreciated having one around. It helps to fill in the silence when I’m not quite in the mood for trawling through my curated playlists. I’m very much a fan of Classic FM for this […]

Cyborg R.A.T. Mobile Gaming Mouse Reviewed

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Whew. It’s been a long time since I reviewed a gaming mouse, and even longer since I reviewed a mobile mouse. The Cyborg, no, wait, MadCatz R.A.T. “M” ( M standing for Mobile if you hadn’t guessed ) tries to be both of these, and doesn’t do a bad job of either.

Oh dear, I’ve become a Converse convert

Friday, April 19th, 2013

Yes… I’m writing about Converse on my tech blog. Deal with it. You wont find an affiliate link here, these views and experiences are entirely my own. Wherever there are brands, there are people who will get passionate about them. And as I’ve been keen to evangelise the technology brands I care about, I feel […]

Auna Mini19B Wireless Speakers Reviewed

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

Perhaps it’s some mystifying force attached to my love of music, or simply just fortune, or misfortune, but I tend to end up reviewing an awful lot of speakers. I wouldn’t be so bitter about this if I weren’t buried in them and quietly sobbing to myself about my broken and dilapidated (although still awesome […]

Alienware X51 Samsung 840 Pro SSD Upgrade

Monday, March 4th, 2013

The Alienware X51 is a fantastic, compact gaming rig which I gushed about in my review. I also mentioned plans to upgrade it with a much-needed SSD. These plans have now come to fruition, and my X51 contains a 256GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD. One would expect Samsung to produce a good quality solid-state disc, […]

Alienware X51 Ultra Compact Gaming PC

Monday, February 4th, 2013

It’s been a good 5 years, if not more, since I purchased a gaming PC. Preferring instead consoles, or whatever Mac gaming I can cobble together. I have spent a great many of these years toying with the idea of buying or building a gaming PC, but it wasn’t until catching wind of the Alienware […]

Waterfield Designs PS Vita Case

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

Waterfield Designs have crafted no less than three PS Vita cases; the deceptively simply named PS Vita Case, the svelte Suede Jacket and the pocket packed Gear Pouch Pro. By far my favourite is the humble-sounding PS Vita Case. Don’t be fooled by its unceremonious title, however, this is a premium case that looks good […]

From Snega2USB To Retrode 2: A Comprehensive History

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

Playing vintage games, such as those from the steeped-in-nostalgia Master System, Megadrive, NES and SNES days, has always been somewhat of a legal minefield. ROM downloads, as abandoned as those old games may seem, are frowned upon both by the companies who once sold those games, and the enthusiast communities who still enjoy playing them. […]
