While all the pressure is on Samsung with the Galaxy Note 7 debacle, here's something you may not know about the company: Samsung released a keyboard phone back in 2010. It's name? "Samsung : )" That's not a typo, there are no missing words, that's the "name", though many coin it the "Samsung smiley" or the "Samsung smiley face" or the codename "Samsung T359". The phone itself is nothing special, with the following specs:
  • 184 Mhz CPU
  • 50MB Internal Memory
  • 1.3MP Camera
  • 240x320 pixel display
  • 1000mah Battery
Needless to say the phone didn't end up very popular and is now discontinued, probably because nobody could identify it!

Back in 2015, I asked the community "What's stopping you buying a smartwatch?" - With the overwhelming response being that they are not as useful as pulling your phone out, and are essentially a gimmick. Since then, I have owned a Pebble Steel for about a year (previously having an Original Pebble, LG G Watch and a Moto 360), and have learned the good and the...

Popular YouTuber Techrax likes destroying expensive equipment in a variety of ways. It's a genius idea as it plays on the emotions of the average person who may be unable to obtain the stuff. Not long after telling everyone to drill holes in their new iPhones in order to get a 3.5mm headphone jack, TechRax has gone one step further by visiting the tallest building in the world "Burj Khalifa" in a whopping 2717 drop test. He proceeds to go...

In the UK, we have a bunch of preowned shops where you can buy electronics. One of them is CeX, which has games, consoles, smartwatches and phones. The iPhone 7 Plus is a hot commodity right now, but while I was in one of the stores on my lunch break, I noticed they were selling a preowned iPhone 7 Plus for a whopping £1150 (around ~$1500). They offer a grading system, where this was graded as "A Unlocked" which usually means as new with all accessories, but opened, as the phone was on...

Back in 2011 amongst the techy savvy community, Google ChromeBooks had the reputation of being a useless piece of kit. "Why would I buy a laptop that just has Chrome on it?" Google has been working hard over the years however to sway those opinions with its Chrome Web Store, and initial testing with Android App compatibility. Now, Google has released a Stable Version of Chrome OS that contains the ability to run Google Play, if you...

Snapchat's founding company have decided that making a chat app isn't going to be their only thing, and because of this have changed their name on all associated sites and app pages with the name "Snap inc." Not only that, they've decided they want to do something a bit different, like making some interesting looking glasses: The glasses feature a 115 degree Wide Angle Camera that can record up to 10 seconds of footage, and will be...
