Now that we have Wi-Fi at home and at work, good options for global cellular roaming and (for times when neither of those are accessible) we also have Wi-Fi portable hotspots too. One would imagine that we might stop there, but no. Skyroam has already produced the Skyroam Solis, but has now...

This (ear)bud’s for you: Jabra Evolve 65t 

Adrian Bridgwater Adrian Bridgwater Profile: Adrian Bridgwater

Okay, so let’s start with a real world use case story to justify this product review. I have been using a Huawei Mate 20 Pro to play my music on -- and, as this smartphone comes with no headphone slot, I’ve been carting...

It’s 4am and I’m a nice ‘conference-style’ hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. The hotel has provided WiFi included with the room - of course it has, you wouldn’t expect anything else - but its 4am and I’m awake with jet lag and i can’t find the keycard with the password on it. Come...
