Volt Connect Electric Bike Review – E-Bikes

Just before Christmas, I was contacted by Volt to review one of their e-bikes, the Volt Connect and I have been using it intermittently for the past couple of weeks. I am a reasonably keen cyclist that rides a road bike, and as an ex-obese person, one of the main reasons why I cycle is for fitness and to keep the weight off. So I have to admit the concept of an electronic bike is very strange to me, it goes against the exact reason why I got into cycling in the first place. However, I was open to...

Blink Home Security Review – Indoor Wireless CCTV

Recently we have covered the excellent Netgear Arlo and the not quite as good but cheaper Kidde Lync. Today we have the review of Blink Home Security. This works in a similar manner to Arlo, there is a sync module and then, however, many wireless cameras you want to add to the system.

AUKEY Powered 10 Port USB 3.0 Hub Mini Review

Aukey recently sent me their 10 port USB 3.0 Hub to review which is an attractive (by hub standards) all aluminium design in a wedge shape, giving you forward facing easily accessible USB ports. The hub is AC powered, so it comes with both a power adapter and USB cable to attached to your PC. While the design is attractive and usable, it is strange that Aukey has put the USB and power sockets on opposite ends of the device. They need to be next to each other and either on the back or just one side to make...

How to Build Working Relationships in a Remote Team Through Video Conferencing

There are many advantages to remote working teams, but one of the major drawbacks is that they don’t allow for the same amount of personal interaction as the traditional office does. These personal relationships are essential for a strong working team. With enough creative thought, it is possible to build these working relationships naturally and allow people to work effectively together even if they can’t always be in the same room together. Video conferencing business software such as BlueJeans is the first step to making this much easier. Stay Informed Email and brief video chats aren’t the only way...
