JIVR bike – Folding | Electric | Chainless Test Ride

All things electric catch my eye and I was looking at bikes for commuting to work and to potter around nearer to home, folding was a must for getting on the tube. I didn’t want just a normal bike, it needed design and tech at the level of a Tesla car level. My searches shaped my browser ads and all things being big data and targeted adverts, JIVR popped up on my Instagram feeds, really I don’t mind, especially when its something I want to look at 🙂 I registered my interest on the…

OnePlus 6 – WOW!

So not even a year after I purchased my OnePlus 5, I now have the opportunity to get the OnePlus 6. I didn’t bother with the 5T, yes I liked the look/New screen and did feel a little cheesed off that after 5 months there was a slightly better model…. but thats technology for you and I did think a less of OnePlus 🙁 I didn’t technically need a new phone, the 5 was doing a good job but seeing as the hand sets are about £400 to £500 if…

Raspberry Pi 3 and Cooling (Heat-sink, Fan and lid off)

I have a little time on my hands at the moment as I am in between jobs (finished old job after 10 years, doing some DIY + training and then starting new job soon) so I though I would have a little experiment. Now there are lots of posts about “is cooling actually needed” on a Raspberry Pi 3 and in general its usually down to personal preference. Its not sporting the latest CPU, probably consumes the same power as most i7 fans and is not running business critical apps…

Huawei P8 Screen Assembly Replace

Over the past few years I’ve been asked to have a go a fixing many a gadget so last week when a good friend as if it was possible to fix his Huawei P8 which has taken a beating, my default answer was “sure, let see how much the screen is”. So after some googling it was about £30 for a replacement part (Glass, LCD and Frame). The advantage to getting the screen with frame is its then just a case of transplanting components from old to new and job…

Hi, so its been a while since I have posed anything. What with summer holidays, work (or change of work) and DIY around the house I’ve been busy and not posted (shame on me).

Monzo It’s time for a new kind of bank – The day after (well several days)

In my last post on the Monzo card it had just turned up and I was all excited to get out there and test the BETA of this card and service behind it. I had a hit list of functions and uses to see how well (or bad) the Monzo card did. A little refresher on the “game” was Ability to use on London Underground? Use abroad when we go to Italy with Zero fees (need to check if the ATM operator makes a charge even if Monzo do not…
