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.

5 Features You Will Love About Windows 8.1 Update 1 with a Keyboard and Mouse

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.

Xenta LT-201 Bluetooth Speaker Review – Wireless and Aux-In Speaker with Quality Sound

Xenta LT-201 Bluetooth Speaker
With a world seemingly entranced by smartphone and tablet technologies, it is more than just a little bit disappointing that many devices including my iPhone 5s and iPad come equipped with a single speaker. They may be adequate for watching the odd short video, to listen to a sample of a song or to converse with friends – however when it comes to listening to music, it doesn’t exactly blow your socks off. True the volume is actually quite impressive on many modern devices these days, yet it certainly won’t fill a room or offer a wide range of frequencies.

We therefore have a few key choices… To equip ourselves with a set of headphones – fine for the personal experience. Secondly purchase a speaker system with an equipped iPhone or even iPad dock, although not everyone chooses an Apple device. For the best compatibility however with a wide range of devices, Bluetooth is the best option and with an Aux-In input also – the Xenta LT-201 Bluetooth Speaker includes the basic requirements that should appeal to any individual who owns a diverse range of hardware.
