Review: Anneks Screen Protector for iPhone SE

Reviews, Technology

Technology gets harder and harder to repair. And more and more expensive. And through this fast-paced evolution of technology we’re experiencing this decade, it’s becoming increasingly more fragile. It’s not fair to compare a Nokia 3310 tank to an iPhone, but it’s a comparison I’ve frequently seen.

On Saturday at 8:01am BST, I sat at home refreshing the Apple app on my iPhone 5S. As has been the case in the past, Apple’s website is usually quite unreliable when it comes to preordering.

Anker Astro E4 Portable USB Charger Review

You don’t always realise you need portable power, but as I use various bits of technology on extended visits it becomes quite cumbersome to take power supplies and there isn’t always somewhere handy to charge your device anyway.

The ‘Kindle’ from Amazon – A Brief Look…

Blog, Gadgets, Technology

A few months ago I posted about switching to a ‘digital lifestyle’. Back then I was talking about switching to a digital music and film library with my iMac as the entertainment hub. I’m sticking to it well and it’s saving me money – digital downloads are cheaper and I don’t have to pay for a TV license. What I’ve been keen to do since is do the same with my small book collection. I like the idea of saving space and having the luxury of having a collection of reading materials at my disposal, almost like having an iPod to read on. When the iPad was released I was excited about it and thought I may end up getting one. For me the iPad is like a large iPhone with enough storage space for many books, plus I liked the idea of being able to check e-mails or tweet on the go – but hang on, I can do all that stuff already on my existing phone. With prices starting at £429, the iPad is an expensive option for simply reading, even with the vast array of apps available to download. So I’ve been considering getting some sort of e-reader instead.
