Amazon Echo Dot

How can the Amazon Echo Dot assist disabled people?

I have often wondered about technology and it’s benefit to people who are disabled and or chronically unwell? I recently received an Amazon Echo Dot, at first it was a fascinating toy really and I sat there asking it various questions and movie quotes. However I quickly realised that this small device could actually be a great help to people who are disabled and or chronically unwell and need assistance. The Amazon Echo dot is a small hands free voice activated device that appears to have limitless capabilities. It […]

Tefal Actifry Express XL

Review: Tefal Actifry Express XL

I have known about the Tefal Actifry gadgets for a couple of years but I actually dismissed them as another cooking gadget that wouldn’t live up to its advertising. However recently we started using the Tefal Actifry Express XL. We previously had a small deep fat fryer, but it’s not good for your health but mostly the greasy vapour in the air makes the kitchen sticky and disgusting and so it was binned. We started buying oven chips and tried to convince ourselves that they […]

Virgin Media

Virgin Media TV should you choose them over Sky?

Virgin Media TV should you choose them over Sky? In short the answer is no! Now I will admit that Virgin Media broadband is amazing, it’s the reason I signed up with them in the first place. Their TV is in a totally different league however, the TiVo box is so slow and it makes watching TV very frustrating. I have phoned them many times about this and they have asked me to press certain buttons in a sequence to turn features off and speed […]

Review of Savfy Bluetooth Headset

Review of Savfy Bluetooth Headset

Savfy Bluetooth Headset I have received some bluetooth headphones¬† from Savfy and they are quite different to any other headphones that I have seen before. The headphones are a neckband that at first I wasn’t sure about, however as soon as I put them around my neck, I realised it was a very good idea. The headphones are packaged very well and come with a lead to charge them via a USB plug or a PC/Laptop and three different sized Ear Bud Rubbers. The foldable […]

Panasonic SC-HTE80 Sound Base

The Panasonic SC-HTE80 Sound Base is now sat nicely underneath my TV and I am impressed with its performance! We all have flat screen televisions now and unlike the old bulky square televisions, the sound doesn’t quite cut it, that’s probably down to the fact that they are so thin and so fitting in good quality speakers isn’t an option. The solution is to purchase a sound bar or a sound base, I personally prefer a sound base as it sits under the television. It’s […]

Aoodle bluetooth headphones

Review of Aoodle Bluetooth Headphones

I have been testing a pair of Aoodle Bluetooth headphones over the past few days, I am not an expert when it comes to headphones but I did put them through their paces! This is an honest review of my experience with these headphones. The first thing I need to mention about the Aoodle Bluetooth Headphones is their price, I am a father to two daughters aged 21 and 23 and I have heard them discussing headphones and prices before, Aoodle Bluetooth Headphones normally sell […]

Sony Xperia Z Tablet

Sony Xperia Z tablet

I think that out of all the electronics that I own, the most used has to be the Sony Xperia Z tablet. A 10.1″ tablet (not sure why .1) that is boasts a 1920 x 1200 resolution multi-touch screen. It has a 1,5 GHz quad-core processor and 2GB ram which helps it deal with multiple apps being open without any loss in performance. The model I won is the 32GB flash storage model with the ability to add another 64GB of storage with a microSD […]

Sky Versus Virgin Media TV

Sky Versus Virgin Media TV

I decided to write about Sky Versus Virgin Media TV because for many years we used Sky as our TV provider, when we moved house three years ago we were in a Virgin Media area and so I subscribed to their broadband but stayed with Sky for the TV. I watch a lot of TV, being disabled and in constant pain means I am laid up a lot and I fill the time with TV, Sky has a vast catalogue of Box Sets available On-Demand […]
