Finding a Small Sofa

26/01/2016 Main

Thought I'd deviate slightly from Technology for this article. I currently live at home with my Uncle and my two Aunts so my bedroom is my little escape. Initially I was just using the room as a bit of a dumping ground for all my stuff and was having to clamber over everything just to get to my bed. I then found myself needing a little more of my own space so I decided to clean the room up, move some stuff around and make it a little more spacious so I can retreat there and not feel all cramped-up and claustrophobic. I’ve kept furniture to a minimal so just have a small clothes rail for some of my clothes that need hanging and a small chest of draws for my undies and some of the other clothes that are ok folded-up. Besides my double bed, there’s really only a small bedside table and a small computer desk. Unfortunately, that leaves absolutely no room for anything else. I’ve already put my flat-screen TV on a wall bracket along with my cable box and DVD player. I wanted to keep the computer desk ideally but as I now use my laptop and tablet rather than the desktop, I’m thinking of ditching it and freeing-up the space.

Sony’s Ultra Short Throw Projector

20/01/2016 Main

As you know by now, I love my technology. I’ve just come across another cool piece of tech which has caught my attention. Has anybody heard of Ultra Short Throw Projectors?

Well these projectors are portable and can turn any of your flat wall surfaces into a TV. The small projector can beam an image from just a very short distance which is why it stands out from other types of projector. The smaller portable version from Sony will reproduce HD footage but if you want to go for their bigger 4K version and have the cash handy, then you can. It isn’t portable as such but its sleek design and the fact that you can set it up closer to a wall than with older style projectors will definitely be a draw for a lot of people. You could easily move it into the garden or into a different room to suit. Read more

Huawei Mate 8

A brand that I think seriously deserves a mention at the moment when it comes to smartphone’s, is Huawei. It’s great that Apple and Samsung aren’t the only one’s battling it out anymore at the top of the smartphone market.

Huawei’s latest model is taking all the accolades and the brand now has a much greater following as a result of their last few models. Inside there’s an Octa-core Kirin 950 processor which has a combination of both four Cortex-A72 and for Cortex-A53 CPU cores. You’ll also get 3- 4Gb of RAM with the ARM’s Mali-T880 GPU. OK, you may wonder what the hell all that means. I’m not entirely sure myself but one thing is for sure, the phone will be rapid and super powerful. You won’t have to worry about multi-tasking judging by those numbers. The battery is going to be 4,000mAh which is huge. It sounds like it’s needed though with all that power inside. Read more

Virtual Reality

This year seems to be the year that VR is really going to take-off. I’ve watched a lot of old sci-fi movies where they’ve dreamt-up VR contraptions, obviously they didn’t look like the kind of things we’re starting to see now but the idea has been there for a long-time. I definitely think that its took a lot longer to become a reality, excuse the pun, than a few people would have thought. Anyway, who cares, now it looks like there’s really been some evolution in the technology and we’re starting to hear more and more about VR related kit.
