Autonomous Cars Could and Should Kill Off the Driving Test, Says Ford

As a non-driver, the potential to drive around without actually driving or even being able to is what’s got me most excited about autonomous cars. That would be lovely. I’ve already been in touch with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency, asking the organisation how rights and the driving test may change, as self-driving cars become more prevalent. No answer. Follow-up. Can’t help you mate. Fortunately, Ford had a little more to say on the matter. Read More >>

Xiaomi Mi 5: Great Specs, Awesome Display and Cheap as Chips

Xiaomi has a reputation for making good phones at incredible prices. That’s never been more true than with the new Mi 5, a phone with specs to compete with the iPhone or Galaxy S7 — but for comparative peanuts. Read More >>

LG: Smartphone Makers Are Afraid of Innovation

South Korean firm LG has been basking in the limelight this week, with praise for its radically different new flagship still coming in thick and fast. In case you don’t know what all the fuss is about, the freshly-launched LG G5 features a unique connection -- which definitely, definitely isn’t called the ‘magic slot’ -- which you can use to attach a number of accessories to the handset. It’s pretty clever. Read More >>

Oral-B’s Connected Toothbrush is so Smart it’s Stupid, But Mainly Smart

Oral-B is seriously ballsy. The toothbrush maker is hell-bent on changing our attitudes to oral hygiene, bringing forcing the words ‘smart’ and toothbrush’ together, as well as ‘dentist’ and 'gamify’. Sorry, but there’s absolutely no way you’ll get me to associate THE DRILL with fun. Read More >>

MWC 2016: All the Phones, Gadgets and Gear You Need to Know About

From virtual reality whales nearly giving our poor Aatif a heart attack to a sweaty Mark Zuckerberg talking the future of social networks (hint - it all comes back to VR again), there's clearly been one major story to tell at this year's Mobile World Congress. Virtual reality, if not the future, is at least the future of what's going to be continuously pushed upon consumers for the next few years. But, going by our experiences so far, maybe that's not such a bad thing. Read More >>

Correcting Your Golf Swing is Seriously Fun With These Analytical Smart Shoes

Too many everyday objects have been been made unnecessarily smart. Kettles, toothbrushes, coffee machines... shoes. Why would shoes need to be connected to the internet? For good reason, as I found out from Iofit at MWC. Read More >>

Don’t Call the LG G5’s Hole a ‘Magic Slot’

It’s the coolest feature on LG’s new flagship, but the company isn’t happy about people referring to the G5’s modular design as the ‘magic slot’. The term was initially coined by Evan Blass in one of his numerous leaks ahead of launch, and LG’s global communications director Ken Hong is genuinely annoyed about the amount of traction it’s gained.

A Bendy Prototype Restored Some of My Faith in the Smartwatch

It’s only a prototype, but FlexEnable’s wrist-hugging vision of a smartwatch has got me feeling ever so slightly optimistic about one of the worst gadgets of them all. I played with the Cambridge-firm’s creation at MWC this morning, and though it’s a looooong way away from being a finished product, it’s reassuring to see a dramatically different alternative to the current versions of the Apple Watch, LG Watch Urbane (and other such monstrosities) on the market right now. could and should be dramatically overhauled in the next couple of years.

The Most Important New Smartphone Feature Is a Little Magic Slot

When LG announced its new flagship smartphone, the G5, at Mobile World Congress yesterday, it did something radically different. At the base of the phone, LG built a small slot it might just change everything. Read More >>

Mark Zuckerberg Being Warned For Sweating Too Much Was the Best Part of His Keynote

It’s safe to say that I was left a little disappointed by Mark Zuckerberg’s MWC keynote. Swedish House Mafia’s ‘Save The World’ blared out before the Facebook founder took the stage, getting us all hyped about the prospect of seeing the red-headed hotshot channel his inner Superman and deliver an impressive routine, blending acrobatics with tasty soundbites.
