What’s the best VPN for your mobile and desktop?

I’m asking for a friend. 😉 I’m really keen to discover what VPN you’re using – and really getting value from. This is where, in my view, the wisdom of the crowd is phenomenally valuable. You see, for the longest time I have rejected VPNs as much as possible. I know that sounds silly. I […]

$35 a month for the new XBox X? Yes please!

Now then, now then, this is interesting. Long suffering readers of this blog will recall that I have, on occasion, been banging on about the possibilities of subscription. It is therefore rather exciting to see it hit the mainstream – as far as I’m concerned – in the context of a subscription to the very […]

Daybridge: The calendar app we’ve been looking for?

I have been following Kieran McHugh on Twitter for a while now. I don’t quite know for how long… it feels long. Long enough to occasionally catch updates from him that were useful, entertaining and stimulating. And then he went and launched Daybridge.

That LG Wing? Could LG deliver cool once more?

I’ve been watching now and again for mentions of the LG Wing and it seems like the excitement is building in the run up to an announcement on September 14th next week. I have a soft spot for LG, I really do. I’ve spent a lot of money LG mobile phone hardware over the years […]

Microsoft Surface Duo: Yeah, I think I need one

Back in 2009, I wrote a post called, “Stop everything and have a look at Microsoft’s Courier Tablet.” It was a brief post linking to a Gizmodo article showing the Courier concept tablet device that Microsoft had been playing with.

Huawei Mate XS: It looks fantastic!

Hello again, dear reader. It has been quite a while. Too long. I said to myself I wouldn’t write anything here on Mobile Industry Review unless I felt like doing so. Couple this with a crazy busy work life and you’ve got an idea why I haven’t contributed much anything at all recently. Last night […]

Kano looks awesome – have you tried it?

I’ve been meaning to buy some Kano equipment for the children for ages – specifically the boys (age 9 and 7). It looks like a fantastic set of products geared to encourage learning about computers, technology, coding and so on.

Mesh wifi? I went with Google. Is now the time to change?

So, I’m moving back to the UK shortly and whilst I’ve been considering which internet provider to use (and whether it really matters), my mind is also moving to the important issue of mesh networks.

What’s better? Sky Broadband or BT Broadband?

I’m moving back to the UK and, therefore, I need to get my internet connectivity sorted out. Here in Denmark I have 500mb broadband at home. I had to work really hard to avoid ordering the 1GB ‘hyperfast’ connectivity as I didn’t think we needed it. Back in the UK, I have consulted the always […]
