Samsung Gear 2 Neo Smartwatch
As a very happy Pebble Smartwatch owner, I find it fascinating how the market has suddenly exploded with a vast range of fitness bands and powerful smartwatches featuring colour displays and a range of useful apps. Just around the corner, Samsung are set to release a few more of their own to add to the selection available and today I had a look at the Samsung Gear 2 Neo Smartwatch in this ‘hands on’ video for Mobile Fun.

HTC One M8 Smartphone Reveal – What’s in a Name?

HTC One M8
For over ten years I have been a freelance journalist and in this time I have monitored gaming and technology events with great interest. More recently though I have been employed as a copywriter at Mobile Fun, who specialise in smartphone and tablet cases, accessories and all manner of related products. I incorrectly believed my involvement in monitoring events would have diminished slightly due to full-time work commitments, yet yesterday I found myself with the usual selection of monitors displaying the latest relevant tweets, searching for live stream videos that actually worked and checking the usual live blogs.

The HTC One M8 was the latest of these escapades where I followed the latest rumour and gossip with great intrigue, mostly due to the fact it was possibly one of the worst kept secrets since the iPhone 4 was found laying unattended in a bar.

FIFA 14 Xbox One
For a number of years now, I have been capturing gaming gameplay from various titles going as far back as the Commodore 64 right up to the Xbox 360 and PS3 for my video game reviews.

So, with my trusty Xbox One, here is a lovely celebration fail I captured using just the console with absolutely no extra recording accessories. Watch as poor Carrick from Manchester United is absolutely nailed by a celebrating player.

Windows 8.1 Update 1
In April of this year, Microsoft will release an update to Windows 8.1 (remember Windows 8.1 was a free update to Windows 8!) with a number of minor yet incredibly useful features that will improve your experience of the operating system when using a mouse and keyboard.

Windows 8 has been criticised by many users for ignoring traditional computers and going ‘all in’ with touchscreen interactions. Although I don’t agree with this viewpoint, I can certainly see the need for improvement.
