SteelSeries Siberia 350 Video Review

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

I took a look at the SteelSeries Siberia 350 headphones some 7 months ago. It seems almost unbelievable that so much time has passed since then, and I’m genuinely a little surprised. I was previously avoiding drawing too much attention to the video because my skin was in a terrible state at the time I […]

StarTech Thunderbolt 3 to Dual DisplayPort Adapter Review

Monday, January 16th, 2017

As I go deeper and deeper down the USB-C and ThunderBolt 3 rabbit-hole, I’m finding the opportunity to test gradually more elaborate products. With quite a few Thunderbolt 3 docks (by far my most anticipated of all the new shinies) on ice temporarily due to Thunderbolt’s “macOS certification” shenanigans, I figured I’d try a Dual […]

Ted Baker iPhone SE Flip Case Review

Saturday, November 12th, 2016

Way back in 2014 I reviewed the Barbour Quilted Flip case from Proporta. Using it with my iPhone 5s. I have loved this case literally to death over the last couple of years, using it day in and day out. Recently I pried out the plastic insert and superglued in a replacement metal one, but […]

Archon Touch Fitness Wristband Reviewed

Thursday, May 19th, 2016

Hi! I’m back. Gently trying to ramp up the game of let-me-play-with-shiny-tech-stuff-plz into a background hobby I can fit around my other activities. I’ve been techessorizing. Accessorteching? Tech-Accessorising? I don’t know. Anyway, I’ve been sporting the Archon Touch Fitness Wristband. I saw it in a release email and thought to myself “That looks good in […]

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 […]
