Is Google’s Chromecast good value for money?

MOST of us have tablets these days. Whether it’s for work, play or a bit of both; we all enjoy having what is essentially a slab of electronic genius in our hands.

Google’s Nexus 9: Three Months On

It’s clear, Google have stormed in to the tablet world with a winner. First it was the Nexus 7, now the Nexus 9. Some are even saying it rivals Apple’s iPad Mini 3 and could finally help Google close the gap with its rivals and maybe even overtake them. Sounds good huh? Well just wait a minute! Before you jump online and start trundling through specs, prices and accessories I have a warning to give you…


Now before I explain what I mean by this, I have to tell you that this article isn’t designed to reveal what’s good about the Nexus 9, after all most of us know by now it has Nvidia’s new and extremely powerful [...]
