Making money for old phones with CEX

Before anyone gets excited, this isn’t a sponsored post. (I’m very open to working with phone brands or recycling /decluttering folks if anyone is offering mind.) A little while before Christmas I won a new Huawei P20 Pro mobile phone, I may have enthused about it at the time. Which meant that my trusty Samsung […]

New camera: Canon SX700 HS

I’ve had a Canon camera for a few years now, a present from Tim. It was a Powershot SX110. It takes very nice pictures. And sometime last year I started playing with what I could achieve when I moved off manual, and the answer is, some very nice things. Some are on my much neglected […]

Samsung Note 2 Android 4.3 upgrade issues.

Hi, my name is Hac, and I’m a samsung Note 2 addict. At least I was. I loved so many things about it. I adored the connective typing, the predictive text, the way that I only had to send a phrase a couple of times and it learnt it. I used to be able to […]

Never mind on the go…

I barely seem to have sat down today! So here’s a quick stream of consciousness post about the main launch event for Three’s MumsOnTheGo yesterday, before I lose it all. I’ll probably miss lots out, and no doubt come back to pontificate further at various points, but here’s a first try anyway. First and foremost, […]

Never heard of Swype? If you’ve a touchscreen phone you need to.

Neither had I, until I was sent an Nokia N8 from ThreeUK that already had Swype installed. Well, actually, it was a while after I was sent it that I figured it out, when the very nice man in the local carphonewarehouse shop showed me how it works. I’d gone in to check out the […]
