Samsung’s yearly Unpacked event kicked off a little earlier than usual this year.

mxgp 2020 review
With each new console generation, we take greater and greater steps towards lifelike graphics and realistic physics in gaming. MXGP 20 exemplifies this expertly with gorgeous visuals, an involved physics system, and  colourful level and course design with wonderful details throughout. This is by far the most in-depth, realistic racing game I have ever played, bar none. However, all this realism...

ROG Phone 3 Review: A Beast Of A Gaming Phone From Asus

Asus ROG Phone 3 review
Sometimes it's easy to get tired when it comes to tech. I'm pretty sure I've written the words before that launch cycles get pretty predictable. This year, Samsung is bringing their big launch of the Galaxy S21 forward but the leaks have been underwhelming to say the least.

Trump is blocking celebs on Twitter
I've been thinking about a few things lately. Mad things like, "imagine someone travelled from the past to today and saw some of our headlines".

Isn't that a boring headline. "Smart glasses that look normal" is perhaps the most underwhelming description of a cool product I've ever written. But it's strangely positive. You may not be aware that a few years back, Google Glasses came on to the market but they bombed because, well they looked awful. Huawei's smart glasses and smart sunglasses take...

Revolut Targets Building Consumer Confidence With New Plus Plan

Revolut Plus Card
I don’t hide that I’m a fan of Revolut. The online-only bank has taken aim at poor experiences offered by "traditional" banks and built their whole experience around simply being better. Now, Revolut is launching some revamped premium plans including the new Revolut Plus and personally, I think it’s great news for retailers, specifically online retailers and consumers. Online Shopping...

Return To Sender: DHL Suspends All UK Landbridge Deliveries To Ireland

DHL suspends Irish deliveries
Lads. What the hell. I've described the end of 2020 as being like that series you're watching building up to a season finale cliffhanger. But, when will the crescendo peak? Obviously, "new strain of COVID-19" and "Ireland closing border to the UK" are top of the list in terms of dramatics, but DHL suspending deliveries surely is right up...

It’s that time of year again. The time when many of us wake up on a cold December morning to the sight of the latest iPhone under the tree. Or maybe a new telly for your man-cave from the Mrs.? Some of us may even be lucky enough to get an Xbox Series or PlayStation 5 if our loved...
