Hail to the King, Make That Monkey King!

Hail to the King, Make That Monkey King! I bet you never heard about THL and their Monkey King prior to reading this. Because, sure as Hell, I didn't, and I spend most of my life on the internet, scouting for gadgets and tech news. Also, I'm not too thrilled about monkeys, they seem creepy and dirty, not to be trusted. To be honest, I don't have much respect for Chinese companies, and THL is, as you might have guessed, a Chinese/Taiwanese(basically, the same thing) company. Regardl...

This is going on for some time now, I can't even remember the last time I wished for a dedicated camera. In my humble opinion, dedicated cameras are becoming more and more obsolete. Who needs a DSLR for taking cat pictures and uploading them to Facebook anyway? I...

Huawei Ascend P6 now available in the UK

Huawei Ascend P6 now available in the UK Huawei might not be the most popular smartphone brand, but it is still a solid choice.
