Asus Transformer Prime – UK Review

Asus Transformer Prime – UK Review

Tweet My HTC Desire and 7” Samsung Galaxy Tab went on ebay at the end of 2011 to fund my purchase of an Asus Transformer Prime. Through a £499 pre-order on ebuyer.com, I was lucky enough to receive this amazing Android tablet a few days before the official UK release and have now had a week or so to play about with it. Here are my impressions!   Hardware The UK version of Asus Transformer Prime is the 32GB Prime + Dock combo, tightly [...]

How To Listen to Spotify on PlayStation and Xbox

Tweet Did you know you can easily stream Spotify to your PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360? In fact, you can stream it to any DNLA-compliant device, such as newer Samsung and Sony Bravia TVs. Before you get too excited though, note that there’s currently no official Spotify app for either PlayStation or Xbox. Instead, you can use a service called Jamcast to capture audio playing on Spotify on your Windows PC and stream it to your living room, [...]
Gadget Update: Virgin Media TiVo

Gadget Update: Virgin Media TiVo

Tweet I’ve upgraded a couple of gadgets this month, satisfying my inner gadget geek for a while and giving me some new shinys to play with. First up is a Virgin Media TiVo to replace my V+ HD. My main reason for getting this was for the massively larger hard drive: with the increase in HD channels I was finding my V+ was constantly filling up, forcing me to either watch or delete progammes to free up some space. The VM TiVo comes in [...]
My Audio and Home Cinema Setup

My Audio and Home Cinema Setup

Tweet I’ve had a few people asking me about my home cinema and audio set-up: how do I listen to Spotify, how do I watch movies, whether I have a Sonos system, stuff like that. So here’s an equipment and cabling run-down to satisfy your inner gadget geek.
My Top 10 Favourite Podcasts

My Top 10 Favourite Podcasts

Tweet I have my HTC Desire wired up to listen to in the car when I’m commuting to and from work each day. I’m often not in the mood for music until later on in the day, so to keep me entertained I subscribed to a selection of podcasts (a podcast is a kind of radio show you can subscribe and listen to whenever you want). I was initially overwhelmed at the sheer volume, variety, and quality of podcasts out there: most bad, some [...]

The Pansentient League’s Guide to the Galaxy Tab

Tweet I bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab at the weekend and have now had a couple of days playing around with it. I wanted a tablet mostly to replace my Eee PC netbook, which I’d use for browsing and tweeting while watching TV or lounging about in bed. I bought an unlocked Galaxy Tab for £499 from my local Phones 4U store. It doesn’t need a SIM card so I didn’t have to take out any kind of contract: this makes it essentially [...]

Gadget Update

Tweet Now that I’ve landed a new job, I decided to splash out a bit on a few new gadgets: one for the car (Alpine CDE-113BT), one for living room (PlayStation Move), and one for the bedroom (Sony Bravia KDL-32EX403U). Here’s a little bit about each.
HTC Desire vs. Motorola Milestone

HTC Desire vs. Motorola Milestone

Tweet I recently “side-graded” from the Motorola Milestone to another Android 2.1 smartphone: the HTC Desire. My contract with T-Mobile was up for renewal, the quirks of the Milestone were beginning to frustrate me, and I’d had a go on a friend’s Desire and instantly… well, desired one. There’s loads of great Desire reviews around the web, so here’s a post about how it rates against the Milestone.
UK Mobile Phone Operators and “Unlimited” Internet

UK Mobile Phone Operators and “Unlimited” Internet

Tweet I use my phone mostly to access the Internet: web browsing, email, music streaming, watching videos on YouTube… sometimes I even use it to make phone calls and send texts. But mostly it’s the data allowance I think is most important when choosing a price plan. It’s no good for a mobile network to offer me a zillion minutes call time if they then cut me off from the Internet after I watch a couple of videos. The mobile [...]
