HP Spectre x360 13 Review: The Realistic Windows Alternative to MacBook

hp spectre x360 13 review
When I was younger, I used to turn my nose up at Apple devices. Overpriced and oversimplified software sitting on underused hardware. I still feel that way about iPhone, but I have a MacBook Pro and an iPad. They're probably two of my favourite gadgets. They work so well. Which left me a little worried when HP sent over...

Closca Launch Sustainable Facemask Amid Increased Demand

closca reusable sustainable facemask
There's a wee company in Spain called Closca. Their motto is to inspire change. A few months back they sent me a foldable helmet which I used on my scooter. The review is coming, but I need to wait for scooters to be legal here first. But the helmet is amazing. Closca does think differently. They prioritise design and...

Recently I reviewed the new Huawei P40 Pro. Most people are getting caught up on the challenge people face with using a phone that doesn't support Google Apps. I used it for weeks without much hassle. I've also managed up load Google onto it. Ultimately, for me, the P40 Pro is a fantastic phone and I wouldn't let a...

People are investing more and more in audio equipment these days. It might be a by-product of travelling more, but noise-cancelling headphones capable of muting the like of aeroplane engines top of people's shopping lists.

I think we can all agree the UK has been on one hell of a combo streak of cock-ups lately. I'm not going to dwell on those because today they've taken a simple step which has left me just a tiny bit jealous would you believe. Originally planned to be made legal in 2021, the UK Government has taken...

Huawei Launches P40 Series Online

P40 Pro launch
I used to work in a phone shop. Literally selling phones. It was a very enjoyable job. I'm sure a lot of that was down to me loving tech and chatting with people. I remember selling a few Huawei P8s and P9s back in the day. They were decent phones. Huawei started bringing some specs from the flagship-class into...

Huawei P40 Series: What To Expect In Ireland From Huawei’s Next Flagship

Huawei P40 Leaked
I would argue that Huawei is about to launch a phone in the most dramatic circumstances ever. Covid-19 could be limiting the supply chain of parts required to build new phones while uncertainty remains around the U.S/China Google/Huawei proxy war. While I've already highlighted this could shift from being Huawei without Google to Google without Huawei, uncertainty remains around...

It’s Time To Reframe The “Huawei Without Google Discussion”

huawei without google
In recent years, the smartphone industry had grown a little stale. Apple seemed to be holding back their best tech to launch slightly upgraded phones every year. Samsung was pushing the envelope a little further but they only ever really needed to offer enough to be ahead of Apple's iPhone. Sony was the next in line without ever really...

You wouldn't think Huawei's Barcelona launch event was hastily organised in the follow up to Mobile World Congress being cancelled. The event had everything from phones to tablets and laptops with some insights into what the future holds. Even if, to get a good look at those, you do need to read between the lines a little. The Huawei Mate...
