Choetech Bicycle Mobile Phone Mount Review

As a reasonably keen cyclist, it is always difficult working out what to do with my mobile phone. When riding on cycle paths/trails I normally listen to my music and have Runkeeper/Endomodo/Strava on for notifications. During the colder months, it is not so bad as I just put it on the inside of my jacket. But in summer months it can be a bit of a nightmare if I am wearing just a t-shirt and shorts, my Nexus 6P is too large to comfortably or safely sit in my pocket while cycling, and I have recently bought a top...

Energenie MiHome Smart Home Automation Review

Energenie were an unknown brand for me until a few days ago, but they are a relatively small company offering lighting and electrical based products. Their main range, and what I am reviewing today, is the Mi|Home home automation range of products. Similar to other home automation solutions Mi|Home requires a hub that connects to all the other smart devices on the network. In this case, it is quite a small affordable device priced at just £69.99, it is powered by microUSB and connects to the network via ethernet. With the hub in place you can use it to...

Sonos opens up to Spotify Connect & Amazon Echo

I love my Sonos in the Kitchen, it is great just to be able to click play and it immediately starts up the playlist I was previously on, connecting to a multitude of online streaming services.

I use Spotify all the time in the gym, so it is just more natural for me to use that app. Also, having to download the Sonos app to your phone/tablet, limits...

Logitech Pro Gaming Mouse Review

Logitech is one of the biggest and oldest players in the gaming peripheral market. I have personally used their products for the past 10 years maybe. I have just swapped out my old G15 keyboard for the fantastic G610 mechanical keyboard, and my main mouse has been the G9x for the last few years. Both the mouse and keyboard are still going strong, but it is nice to get new things. Logitech has kindly sent me one of their latest mice to play with, the Logitech Pro Gaming Mouse. Shying away from the G naming convention, this is a...
