Spigen Ultra Hybrid Nexus 6P Case

When I first purchased my Nexus 6P, I bought myself a budget clear Orzly case, as a stop-gap until my preferred Google case was available. However, I’ve now had a chance to try a similar case, but this time from Spigen.

CSS is my weak spot in web development, so I’m always happy to come across useful compilations of useful snippets – in this case CSS that allows you to do some pretty whizzy stuff, really easily.

Had an issue this morning with Android this morning that I’ve seen before. Thankfully, they make it really easy to report bugs, so I have (obviously, always search beforehand to make sure it’s not already known).

SoundPEATS QY8 Bluetooth Headphones

SoundPEATS have launched a number of Bluetooth headphones in recent months, and the QY8 are another set, this time sitting at the lower budget scale of the market. Costing less than £15 these still offer a lot of the high-end features that most costly models include.

Tom Clancy’s The Division – Useful Content

I’ve not enjoyed a game as much since Battlefield 4 (and that was released in 2014!) and have been looking for content to go along with the game. Here’s what I’ve found so far but if there’s anything you can add then please let me know via the comments!

BBC News and falling standards

It’s been noticeable in recent months that the BBC news on their website has started to lean more towards the kind of horrible “clickbait” stories that are so popular these days. Evidence? Right now, on their site I can find two examples where the headlines promote a story that simply doesn’t materialise…

GOOQ Vertical Charging Dock for LG G Watch R

I’ve been after a way to store my watch for sometime – indeed, I reviewed the Aerios Moduul, which turned out to be an expensive disappointment. I’ve seen 3D printed versions since but these were of low quality, so I was very happy to see this one from GOOQ. To be honest, there’s not much to it. The top is an angled version of the official charger, with a vertical stand from one side down to a weighted base. The whole thing is about 20cm tall. My plan was to have this on the bedside and I thought the height may be too much but the angle is just right that I can still see the time.

Xtreme Bright Ultra Torch Bike Light Set

For the second time this week I get the pleasure in reviewing a bike light set, where the front light doubles as a handy torch. It’s by the same manufacturer but it’s, well, different.

Powerlast USB-C to USB A Braided Cable

Right now, as new technology, USB type C cables are quite expensive and, at £25, this is no different. But for that kind of money you kind of expect something a bit special and that’s where most cables fall short. In this case, though, we have a high quality braided cable (with a 1 metre length in this case), coupled with some excellent USB fittings on either side. The braided cable does make it less flexible than standard cables but it’s a lot more hard wearing and will pretty much never tangle.
