CAT S61 Review: A Well-Rounded Rugged Phone, With a Hefty Pricetag

In this day and age, smartphones feel like they cost the Earth. The big names all seem to be loaded with gimmicks, and still seem as fragile as a champagne glass in an opera house. Then you have rugged phones, which are hardier and more durable, but are often overlooked because their primary focus is trade workers and people who need a phone capable of handling more dangerous situations.

The Meg Is Dumb, But It Knows It’s Dumb, and That’s Why It’s Great

Though they are complete tonal opposites, The Meg feels like an unlikely and very unconventional love letter to Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. It’s as if the film’s writers sat down to watch that 1975 masterpiece and just kept asking “What if?” What if the shark really ate people off the beach? What if the heroes could fight the shark underwater? What if they actually did get a bigger boat? Read More >>

Six Months With the Apple HomePod Almost Convinced Me It Was Good

I didn’t understand the Apple HomePod, when it launched six months ago. Sure, I got the business reasons behind Apple’s smart speaker (everyone’s got to have a smart speaker it seems), but the HomePod struck me as too stupid and too expensive. It just seemed like Apple’s weird attempt at showing Amazon and Google that it could make speakers too. After spending the last few months with the HomePod some things have become quite clear. This thing is still incredibly overpriced, and AirPlay is so good it almost makes the HomePod worth it. Read More >>

Anatomy Of A Tweetstorm: Looking At The Numbers Behind #ResignWatson

Ahh, Sunday evening. An opportunity to sit back and relax for a precious few hours before the work week begins again.

Some people spent their evening furiously tweeting about the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, Tom Watson, and calling for him to resign. Read More >>

We Talk Star Wars, Sci-Fi and Supervillains With Katee Sackhoff

The Battlestar Galactica cast hold a special place in the hearts of all sci-fi fans, and perhaps none more so than Katee Sackhoff. Her Starbuck had the sort of impact that actors can only dream of, and whenever she returns to sci-fi it’s a big deal. Her six-season tenure on Longmire is over, and she’s immediately followed it up with sci-fi film 2036 Origin Unknown and a Netflix space series, Another Life, which is currently in pre-production.

Staircases in Space: Why Are Places in Science Fiction Not Wheelchair-Accessible?

Space, as we all know, is the final frontier. It’s the star-spangled playground in which our imaginations run amok, and the setting for stories that made us fall in love with sci-fi. Some of us spent hours pretending we were the Doctor’s companions, helping him find Gallifrey from the TARDIS. Some of us imagined the Millennium Falcon jumping to hyperspace when we shouted, “Punch it, Chewie!” Some of us swore we could hear the communicator beeping when we asked our favourite Federation starship to beam us aboard. The characters that roam space have built homes in our hearts and allowed those of us who are trapped in Earth’s gravity-well to fulfil some of our wildest fantasies. Space remains a vast, untamed place, penned in only by the limits of our own imaginations. Read More >>
