After day 3 was cut short due to feet, it was hardly in doubt that day 4 would be any different. We slept in late and once up and dressed, we packed the remains of our stuff and checked out. The hotel has a place we could stash our luggage until it was…

After the first couple of days, Monday was always going to be a rest day with just a few short trips scheduled. It turned out to be even moreso than expected due to my dodgy feet and unfit, overweight self.

We decided to take it easy after such a long first day, so barely made it out of the hotel room before 11am. The weather of course, being great. Louise thought that a nice easy trip without a lot of walking would be to the Berlin Zoo, and since it was…

  A hard but fun day. Up at 2am to get to the airport in time – at least we had coffee before leaving. The roads were fairly clear, the airport queues were long. The flight (with easyJet) was crowded on a plane with seating designed for children, and the…

Hi all,

I'm looking for a tablet (or chromebook) to replace my Pixel C. Not yet, it still works, but it will never get an official Android Pm and security updates will be ending soon - not to mention that more and more software claims it's not up to the minimum spec to run it (it is, I've checked hardware specs, but you know how it is with end-of-life stuff... Google won't support it therefore...)

So in summary:
It needs to be at least the specs of a Pixel C
It needs to have at least another 3-4 years of supported life
It needs a 4k screen
It needs to be between 9" and 12" (preferably 10)
It needs to be lightweight and I'd prefer a touch screen

It needs to be NOT made by Google, since I'm not buying from them again considering they refuse to support anything older than 2 years.

Any advice? I'd prefer not to go to the fruity company for a tablet.

This year, Louise and I are going to spend some time in Berlin. I’ve never been before (though Louise has), and it’s been several years since I’ve been out of the UK. The last was a weekend in Paris in 2014, so it’s about time.

So we’re going on holiday soon and well, I wanted to carry a few less cables around with us, partly to save weight (not that it’s much) but also to reduce the chances of them getting lost in the hotel room or while out and about. With all this in mind I…

It would be easy to talk about Brexit or IoT as a reason to become cynical and jaded in the UK, but it wouldn’t be interesting, nor novel. There’s just way too much that’s already been said, and in any case it tends to polarise people into the pro- and…
