Virgin Intelligent WiFi Pod

Virgin Intelligent WiFi Pod

With more people staying indoors, home Wi-Fi has taken a battering. People are using the web to socialise more, game, hold meetings over Zoom, as well as stream video and music. That’s meant once reliable speeds and coverage aren’t quite as robust. Virgin Media has been lagging behind the competition, providing just a single router […]

Apple iLife ’11 Review

Apple iLife ’11 Review

Apple’s lifestyle application suite is refreshed to expectedly good effect. The changes to this iteration of iLife are perhaps the most minor we’ve seen to date, but Apple doesn’t deny that this is an update more than a revolutionary refresh. That Apple’s website invites you to “Upgrade Now” not to “Buy Now,” isn’t just because […]

Today’s Twitter is often tomorrow’s Bebo with these things, but after two weeks of using it, we have found it does some […]

TuneUp Review

TuneUp Review

Music library in a mess? You need a TuneUp. If you’ve been collecting MP3s for years now, there’s a good chance that your music library is a hopeless mismash of different bitrates, with ID3 tags more filled with holes than the plot of a Michael Bay film. If this sounds like your digital music library, […]
