Amazon Prime Music Unlimited – a great offer for a fantastic music streaming service

I’ve been using Amazon Prime Music Unlimited for a couple of years now and can genuinely say how rather good it is. If you’re an Amazon Prime user, you get the more basic Prime Music included. However, for all the music you could wish for you need to pay a little more for the Unlimited […]

Bacon to the Future – A review of meat substitute foodstuffs

In advance I’d like to apologise for making that title sound very clinical but I wasn’t sure how to word it otherwise. Most of the stuff I’m going to mention is Quorn but, as other brands are involved, I thought I needed to be a pretty generic.

Anyway, due to a required change in diet (reduction in red meat, in particular) I’ve turned to meat substitute to add to meals. You see, I like my meat, so something that will replace it in my diet without me even realising is important. Sorry, but a nut cutlet isn’t going to work with me.

So what’s good and wasn’t it?

SoundPEATS Q29 Wireless Earbuds

As soon as Apple announced their AirPods it was inevitable that other companies would produce their own equivalents. And, sure enough, SoundPEATS have done just that with their Q29 earbuds.

Just like the AirPods, these work independently of each other and come in a case which also charged them, when not in use. However, there are as many differences between the two products are there are similarities.

Benuo Slim Genuine Leather Card Wallet

The Benuo is an attractive, real leather wallet. Unlike many which fold, this is a compact, single piece. There are 2 slots on the back for cards and two on the front, under a snap fastened strap. The front also has a coin section too. Push the two sides together and the top opens up to reveal an area for notes (albeit, very well folded).

The bronze-coloured stitching around the leather is well done but may not be to everyone’s taste. Also, on the front is a small slot, just behind the strap, to hold a single coin (I found a £1 to fit just right). What the purpose of this is, I’m not sure, although it does make fastening the strap easier.

LOPOO Remote Control LED Light String

It’s Christmas (well, nearly)! Time to be thinking of putting up the decorations and sorting out your yuletide tree. This year I’ve been trying out a string of LED lights, courtesy of LOPOO.

Traditional lights consist of thickish cables and large bulbs, whereas this consists of incredibly thin copper wires and minute LED lights. The wire is a bit more visible than the green cable you often get, but takes up less room, is a lot more flexible and, to be honest, adds its own nice touch to the look. The lights are low-powered (just 1 amp) so the electricity is sent along the bare copper wire (okay, no, the description does say the wire is insulated but, if is, it’s undetectable) – no, you can’t feel anything when it’s touched!

PIX-LINK WR01 WiFi Extender

The WR01, available in a high close black or white, is a single band, Wireless-N extender and AP.

Wireless extenders are incredibly useful for ensuring you get a good quality WiFi extender across your property – it basically sits away from your router, taking its WiFi signal and extending it further for you.

The AP functionality allows you to create a WiFi signal where, before, you may not have had one. An Ethernet connection in the side allows you to plug this into an existing internet connection and the device will then create a WiFi signal for you – this may be of use in a hotel, for instance, where they may only provide a wired internet connection.
