Review: Live And On-Demand Sport Via Eurosport Player

One of the biggest changes to my life since becoming a dad is the lack of control I have over my own TV. That’s right – my own bloody TV. In the past, I used to watch anything and everything I wanted. My weekends often comprised of back-to-back football games – it wasn’t uncommon to watch […]

Review: Philips ADR810 Dash Cam Automotive Driving Recorder

The last few years has seen a rise in a new kind of car tech – the dashboard camera, aka dash cam. Something once reserved for the Police and Sci-Fi films, improved technology, rising insurance costs and ‘crash for cash’ scams – which is worth £400 million a year in fraudulent claims – has seen […]

Review: Ebac 3650e 18 Litre Portable Home Dehumidifier

We’ve always had a bit of condensation on the windows in our house. It’s not really been something I’ve worried about – I’ve usually just wiped it, or more likely, left it. I noticed earlier this year though that we’d started to get a bit of damp / mould on the ceilings of both our bedroom […]

Review: Xbox One S Games Console With Minecraft Favourites Bundle

These days, technology forms an integral part of family entertainment. We play with toys, engage in messy play, go to toddler classes and spend time outside, however tech is pretty crucial too.

Review: Sengled Pulse Pair LED Bulbs With JBL Wireless Speakers

Smart home technology is slowly starting to become more mainstream. We’re not quite at the point of having our own consciousness implanted into a Cookie to control our homes – as per the White Christmas episode of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror – however, we’re probably not too far away. I’ve dabbled in smart home tech […]

Protecting The Home With Smart Technology

I hate to make sweeping statements, but technology is pretty bloody awesome. With the amount of tech we use these days, you have to wonder how people used to cope – let alone live – without all the gadgets and gizmos we own these days. Remember when you had to physically arrange a place and time to meet up […]

Review: Vax Dual Power Pro Carpet Cleaner (W85-PP-T)

Since moving into our house nearly six years ago, we’ve decorated – and in some instances, renovated – the majority of the rooms. This has included things like ripping out fitted wardrobes, buying new flooring, painting walls, installing a new bathroom and landscaping the garden. We’ve not managed to do everything though. One of the bigger jobs […]

Review: Morphy Richards Redefine ATOMiST Vapour Iron

There’s certain things that fall by the wayside when you have a kid. Since Toddler L popped into the world, we’ve cut down on the frequency and changed how we do household tasks. This has allowed us to either spend more time with the sprog, do what we deem ‘more important things’ or just recharge our batteries […]
