ClassPass London review: a one-stop shop for fitness classes in London

We were pretty happy when ClassPass crossed the pond and launched in London last month, giving us capital-dwellers the opportunity to try out their pick-n-mix approach to fitness classes. So we dived straight in to see how we got on with it - here's our ClassPass review. How does ClassPass work? You pay a monthly fee…

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge review: the best Android phone on the planet right now

With thanks to Three for the handset. The air sizzled with excitement at the Samsung Galaxy S6 launch in Barcelona last month, as we prepared to see what #TheNextGalaxy had up its sleeve. And Samsung certainly didn't disappoint. The somewhat backslapping announcement made continual digs at Apple and some truly terrible jokes ("Sorry about my English, my…

HTC One M9 review: HTC nails it again

Following on from our quick hands-on with the HTC One M9 at the launch event in Barcelona, we take an in-depth look at the flagship phone HTC is hoping will see off competition from Apple and Samsung. With the One M8 being one of the most popular Android smartphones of all time, the M9's got big…

We’re done, OnePlus One: why I’m ditching the phone I used to love

You might remember my recent review of the OnePlus One invite-only Android smartphone. I gave it 34/50, which is a decent score, and said it's a great phone for tinkerers and early adopters, though threatened by the LG G3's new lower price. I stand by all of that. But I'm still selling mine - and here's…

Review: Technology Will Save Us’s super-simple DIY Thirsty Plant Kit

This is my desk plant, Ivy: (Get it? Holly and the Ivy? I'm a genius). She sits on my desk at Shiny Towers, and occasionally I remember to douse her with a bit of drinking water, some leftover tea, or even Diet Coke. Despite this flagrant mistreatment, she actually seems to be doing quite well.…

Acer Aspire Switch 10 review: this convertible laptop offers excellent value

After briefly trying the Acer Aspire Switch 10 at Acer's Edinburgh liveblogging event, we were keen to get a closer look at this super-lightweight laptop-tablet hybrid. We suspected it'd be perfect for working on the go, so we took it to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to really put it to the test. Here's our Acer Aspire…

We tried I Am Bread – a game about becoming toast – and it was awesome

The premise of I Am Bread - a PC game by the makers of the stratospherically popular Surgeon Simulator - might be our favourite ever. You play a piece of bread whose sole ambition in life is to become toast by any means possible. You can use a toaster, of course, but there are endless more creative (and funny)…

Meet Phantom: the £1400 speaker Devialet don’t need you to buy #MWC15

Sitting in the limousine that Devialet provided journalists to persuade them to listen to yet another sound system, I asked the representative a question. "If your product is sold out almost everywhere," I queried, a can of Fanta Limón in my pampered hand, "why do you want us to write about it? People can't buy it."…
