Google Android 8.0 Oreo Launched

Google has officially released the next version of Android at 19:50 BST to coincide with a solar eclipse visible on the east coast of the United States. New versions of Android can be slow to roll out, and just 14% of Android devices run the previous OS, Nougat. Android 8.0 Nougat is claimed to bring a range of improvements from battery-life boosting to a picture-in-picture multi-tasking mode. The battery life boost comes courtesy of an improved Doze mode, which tightens the limits surrounding what developers can make their applications do in the background. Originally demonstrated as part of the...

Blue Sadie Over-Ear Headphones Review

Blue is not a brand that I would normally associate with premium headphones, but they do have strong credentials with audio in the form of their universally praised microphones. Their entry into the headphone market is an interesting one, as they are jumping straight into the upper mid and high-end market. Their flagship product called Ella is a planar-magnetic over the ear headphones with built in amp and costs an eye watering £675. The Blue Sadie is a little more reasonably priced, but still expensive at £385. Similar to the Ella, these headphones have a built-in audiophile amplifier which...

Adata AI920 i-Memory Lightning Flash Drive Review

The AData i-Memory flash drive is a little different than your bog-standard USB drive. This has 2 ports, one USB 3.1 and one Lightning, allowing you to connect it directly to a lightning equipped iOS device. At just 6.9mm thin and 3.6g light it is as small or smaller than most normal USB drives, and certainly small enough to carry around in your pocket when travelling. The model I was sent is the 64GB version and this is currently priced at £60.64 on Amazon, which is quite a big premium for a lightning equipped USB. You can pick up...
