I have a real soft spot for Wilson Audio loudspeakers, especially the £105,000 Alexx. They are definitely what I’d class as aspirational, for the likes of me anyhow. Well, Wilson have just announced the release of the slightly more affordable Yvette speakers. The new Yvette loudspeakers draw from Wilson’s rich tradition. But, perhaps more importantly, …

This new feature is going to make it easier for users to adjust the power options on their PC. Power slider = easier They can use …

Last year some tiny speakers really wowed me. They were the ONEmicro from ONEaudio. Now, these clever clogs are venturing in to shrinking 5.1 surround sound.

I realise people get attached to their tech. We might even give pet-names to our favourite devices. But jumpers for drones? I have checked the date and we’re still a way off from April 1st so I am assuming this is legit. You can buy sweaters for your drone. I kid you not, gadgety faithful. …

Friendly and helpful staff. Suits are competitively priced when compared to chain fashion stores - the difference being that the suits from Go 2 are semi-tailored.
