I don’t know about you but I am sick to death of the debate about Internet adverts. Ad blockers are not a new invention, they have existed on desktop for years – yet here we are having this conversation again because of Apple.

Strava Review - the Next Level in Exercise Motivation

Well, it’s February, still the time of year that packs out the gyms, every shop is trying to sell you gear to get you active, and all the exercise companions appear. There is no reason to bother with all the new apps and gadgets as there is a reasonably old one that could be the best of them all. Strava combines performance recording with friendly competition for everyone from fit...

Nexus 6p - When P Means Premium

Well they finally did it. Google finally listened to all us geeks and produced a premium phone for the 7th generation of its Nexus line. A show stopper, Google produced the pinnacle of what they believe an android phone should be, and how it should work. This is the Nexus 6p — and when p stands for premium all others should take note.

Making the tock worth it - iPhone 6s review

It’s a weird thing the S upgrade of the iPhone, it is often overlooked — but always brings in features that become staples of the hardware line. The touch ID sensor with the 5s and Siri with the 4s, these models are not just the ‘tock’ to the redesigned models ‘tick’.

My obsession is a really problem, it causes me to wake up at strange times of the morning and spend lots of money. No it’s not a drug addiction — like many people with an addiction to Apple products I woke up and pre ordered the new phone on Saturday, but it was surprisingly pain free and easy.

An Apple Streaming Service Was Unavoidable

For millions and millions of mobile users iTunes is inseparable from music. Since the birth of the iPod Apple’s platform supplies anything they wish to listen to — all be it 99p per track at a time. Unfortunately for Apple much as the 8 track, the cassette tape and the CD before it; the digital download began to die.

Health, Technology And Google

When asked on our recent Q and A podcast about improvements in technology that are missing despite the vast improvements, I highlighted health and disability. Admittedly rather rashly, I highlighted that some things in technology really don’t matter, and research can be better diverted into helping people improve their standard of life.

I Like This Apple Watch More Than I Thought

Since journeying back to using my iPhone more than anything else (for reasons see Nitroz blog post) I have been stuck in term of wearables. My Moto 360 or G Watch R have been invaluable to me in daily life, allowing me to filter emails from work or just spend less time checking my phone. The pebble is great and all but it just doesn’t cut it when compared to...
