Dear Blog,

New Alienware M15 - an ultrabook from Alienware?

59361 Its funny how times change - I bought my first laptop as a mobile gaming PC, I was moving around a lot with work so was easier than a PC. But once work settled down I went back to a PC - Mainly down to cost and upgrade options, gradually upgrade bits over the years instead of large investment...

USB-C Hub for laptop and desktop

What you seem to want is a USB-C KVM switch which should be technically possible but I can't find anyone that makes one, the only ones I can find don't power the host devices. That would be the neatest solution as then you'd just press a button to switch between the two machines. A standard USB-C hu...

Mobile Phone

59539 I'm a big fan of Android and never considered iPhone, for personal use I've always stuck with phones using close to stock Android. I was given a Samsung phone for work and hated it, lots of Samsung specific apps that I don't think you can remove. Also I really didn't like the UI on Samsung, j...

The lower resolution of the Note10 screen is a plus for me as it's what the Note8 runs at by default and I didn't find running a higher resolution beneficial on such a small screen so would prefer to run it native at that screen. No sd would be a deal breaker although personally wouldn't consider an...

Bear in mind the two plus sizes are not the same size so the S10 is the smallest, the S10+ and Note 10 are a similar size and then the Note 10+ dwarfs them all. There's a few different ram differences depending on storage of each model and the other main differences I'm aware of is that the S10 and ...

I agree as I'm relieved that it's nothing bad and that I know what it is as initially when I phoned for my results I was told by someone that a GP had checked the results and marked them as ok which made me feel total despair as I was desperate for how to proceed and now I had nothing. Thankfully th...

I have to laugh at the optimism on my last post as to put it mildly, that didn't go to plan. I decided on my setup for my LEJOG attempt and bought what I needed then started work on my route and booking my overnight stays but started to have cold feet when I was pricing it all up as it was going to ...

That's going to be an absolutely brutal ride as 100 miles off road is a a big challenge on its own but that's a crazy amount of climbing. I did a ten hour endurance race with that rate of climbing and it was savage as you were either climbing or descending, there were hardly any sections that were r...

59520 Processing... Lightroom or Photoshop to start with? I have never used LR and have not really used PS for well over 5 years and even then it was only a bit of a dabble. Also, does anyone know if you can use either of these on an iPad Pro 11" ? There is some overlap between Photoshop and L...

Smart Watches

I had to do without my Garmin smartwatch for a day after Garmin pushed out a faulty update which killed the software on the phone (thankfully they fixed it the next day), I was surprised how much I missed it. It's so handy each time I feel the phone buzz that I can simply check it with a glance at m...

Well done Chris particularly this early in the season which has still been very chilly at times. I'm surprised you say you need to get onto bigger hills though, do you not find the MTB helps with that? Going up hills is the easier part of road cycling for me although admittedly even with a 50/34 at ...

I finally managed to get the newly upgraded Stache out last night to a trail centre although I was frustrated by my lack of pace as normally I find it easier to go from the rigid to the hardtail as the suspension fork is more forgiving but initially wasn't getting the bike up to the speed it can do....

59504 Yeah I have come to the same conclusion after reading many different articles online. Trying to work out what sort of bag I would like as well. I like the idea of a sling type as can be used when riding too. Looks like I need to visit a shop to check out sizes etc first. I have one of the sli...
