How to Stop Your iPad or Macbook Ringing When Getting a Call on the iPhone

iOS 8 added a bunch of useful functionality and features to the iPhone and iPad, and it also added one ‘function’ that I find incredibly annoying – Continuity.

TTR-SB Seawolf GoPro Submarine

Strapping a trusty GoPro to the nearest handy drone has allowed us to capture vistas from the sky, experience the Star-Wars-Speeder-esque excitement of FPV flying, and if the damn thing wasn’t so noisy, it probably would allow the adolescent wish fulfillment of peeping through an upstairs window to catch an attractive neighbour in all sorts … Read more

Playstation 4 Gets 1 Terabyte Upgrade

Hot on the heels of last week’s announcement of the new XBox One package, (featuring a new redesigned controller and 1tb of storage), Sony has launched their answer barrage – a similarly upgraded PlayStation 4 now with 1tb of storage, a case redesign, and a reported lower power consumption.

The Ultimate Player Edition Playstation 4 features a matte finish casing on the hard drive bay, in order to make the console look ‘more casual’ (Sony’s words), and comes in both black and white variants.

In addition to the doubled hard drive space, technological improvements include a 10 percent weight reduction and a new PSU that will reportedly consume 8 percent less power than the current model.

The casual Not as Shiny Edition (ahem, Ultimate Player Edition) will be released in Japan by the end of June, and the rest of the known universe by mid July.
