Huawei Ascend Mate – Roadtest
In keeping with today’s trends towards making our mobile phones bigger and bigger, Huawei recently introduced their Ascend Mate into the Australian marketplace. This is large phone – that’s the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the Samsung Galaxy S4 with it in the photo – and as you can see, this is not tiny. Being a big phone carries with it a number of advantages, and especially so for those of us whose eyesight is no longer what it used to be. The extra screen real estate means that details and images can be and are displayed in larger sizes...

Jawbone Up – Review

I was recently traveling in the USA, and as you might expect, I was in need of a mobile internet service. Upon looking around at the various options available, I opted to buy the Virgin Mobile USA MiFi 2200. This is a device whose description certainly seems to fulfill the needs that I had. In practice, that is simply not the case; this would have to be one of the worst pieces of alleged technology that I’ve ever had the displeasure to have used. Please note carefully that this is a device that is available in the USA, marketed and...
