Are There Any Non-Terrible iPhone 6 Plus Cases?

Obviously, discounting the master stroke you see above, there are a lot of pretty horrible cases out there. In fact, some would even go so far as to say that the entire genre is inherently flawed. But in reality iPhones scratch far too easy — having a case is a necessary evil. Which is why we ask you, dear readers, is there anything halfway decent out there to cover our coming crop of new toys?


What Are Your Favourite Twitter Bots To Follow?

Earlier in August, it was reported that 8.5 per cent of Twitter users, or 23 million accounts, were not actually people but bots, autonomous accounts that post without any human interaction. Twitter refuted this claim saying it was much closer to 5 per cent, but that’s still a big chunk of users. So now I’m wondering, should I be following any of these Twitter bot accounts?


What Song Plays When You Accidentally Launch iTunes?

I sit at a Mac all day with my headphones on.

Get In Here And Moan About How 'Android Did It First'

Look, let’s be real for a second. We’re all busy people. We’ve got a lot to read, write and do today, so I want to get this out of the way as quickly as possible.

All the cables and servers that make up the internet may be actual, physical things, but the data they send zipping all over the world is a bit harder to put into perspective. Many have tried — quite a few have failed — but every once in a while, creativity and genius combine to form the perfect picture of the internet kingdom.


What's The Best Video Game Peripheral Ever?

Video game consoles are amazing. Ever since I cracked into my first NES 20+ years ago, they continued their steady progression of awesome. Yeah, there have been a few hiccups along the way (does anyone remember 3DO Interactive Multiplayer?), but overall every iteration was an improvement.


What's The Earliest Trace Of Yourself You Can Still Find Online?

The internet is so deeply woven into our everyday lives, we hardly think about it anymore. We’ve all been posting, commenting, liking, and sharing for at least a decade. In the process, we’ve all left a long digital trail. What’s the oldest remnant of your online life that you can still find?


Top 10 Time-Travel Movies To Stimulate Your Mind

There are plenty of time-travel movies in existence, but most are either obtrusive “hard sci-fi” yawn-fests or patronising popcorn entertainment. Here are ten time-travel flicks that manage to successfully straddle the divide — with trailers!


What Do Smartphones Need That They Don't Already Have?

Welcome to the first week of September, also known as crazy-insane IFA 2014 and iPhone event extravaganza. During the next 10 days we’ll see new handsets, smartwatches, and other tech paraphernalia from almost every major hardware manufacturer. So now I’m wondering, where do smartphones even go from here?


What Crowdfunded Project Has Screwed You Over The Hardest?

Crowdfunding isn’t the same as preordering. It’s a gamble at best. And with the Keryos Meteor coming out as one of the biggest crowdfunding fails in recent memory, we got to thinking: What other crowdfunding disasters have managed to slip under the radar?
