We will be publishing our full review of this phablet tomorrow (22 April), but we thought we would wet you appetites with a giveaway.

Published by on Apr 21st, 2015, No Comments


2015 is an interesting year for Microsoft. For the first time in years, the Redmond company seems to be establishing a vivid ecosystem, with results which look – so far – to be impressive. From the forthcoming release of Windows 10, to Microsoft’s acquisition of Nokia, Microsoft now has the opportunity to regain the confidence of its consumer base – and that pursuit of critical appeal is where the firm’s newest budget smartphone, the Lumia 535, comes into play.

You can read the full written review here. But first, below is the video review by Bryan Smith. Please check it out and let us know what you think. (more…)

LG accidentally reveals Apple’s plans for an 8K iMac

Published by on Apr 7th, 2015, 2 Comments


LG may have just completely jumped the gun and, without realising, revealed Apple’s plans for their next generation iMac – or at least the display part of it.

The details around Apple’s display plans were leaked in a press release by LG that details their new 8K display technology, which they are calling “Quad-Ultra High Definition.”

It was most likely not on purpose (and we’re sure the copy editor in charge of press releases at LG has had a talking to) but the press release that was posted on the company’s website, mentions Apple’s plans for a 8K, high-resolution display in the new iMacs.

As we all know, LG is the display partner for Apple, so it was only natural that they would mention their new technology along with their partners. However, LG certainly didn’t beat around the bush when it came to revealing Apple’s plans.  (more…)

Apple Drone Concept

We know that drones are slowly but surely taking over the world. The influx of drone use over the past year and a half has been nothing short of a phenomenon and almost everywhere you look, a drone is sure to hover.

Many tech giants have also started dipping their toes in the drone pool. Amazon wants to deliver your packages via their Prime Air delivery drones, and Facebook and Google want to connect more people to the internet by using drones.

One tech company that has been keeping mum on drones, however, is the almighty Apple.

Until now, that is. (more…)

Apple Spaceship Campus

When you’re the biggest company in the world and the money just keeps rolling in, you most certainly deserve massive, grand-scale, completely-over-the-top headquarters.

Apple’s so-called ‘Spaceship Campus’ has been under construction for over a year now, and by the looks of things, the mega tech company is definitely not playing around with construction and looks set to meet their deadline.

The plans for Apple’s huge new campus was only approved a mere 18 months ago, but by the looks of things you would think that the grounds have been under construction for much longer. The company has said that they hope to officially open the doors to Apple’s new home in 2016. (more…)

LG G4 leak shows a subtle curve

Published by on Mar 17th, 2015, No Comments


A couple of leaks have hit the internet showing the upcoming LG G4 flagship device from the Korean electronics company in a completely new light. If these leaks turn out to be true, it marks a major step forward for LG and their ambitions.

Other companies like Samsung have only flirted with the idea of having a curved screen smartphone on the flagships – they continue to be alternative models to the flagship proper, in the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge and before that the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge. (more…)
