Are You Running Out Of Hard Disk Storage Space? Check Your Cache Files!

CleanMyPC-LogoDigital storage space has become less of an issue in the past few years. You can pick up a 2TB hard drive for next to nothing and add it to existing collections of storage, with the potential of a RAID array consisting of enough space to hold an entire Blu-ray movie collection.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for solid state drives. Although these new storage drives are coming down in price compared to what they cost at this point a couple of years ago, they aren’t cheap enough for you to be truly frivolous with your data. [Read more...]

Postbox 3 For Mac and Windows Review

postbox-mac-iconAround this time last year, we took a look at an email client for Mac and Windows called Postbox. Expectations were set rather high with the application costing £25, which is unusually steep for an email client. Despite this, we were won over by some advanced features, such as image and attachment searching, that can’t be found in other free clients.

This time around, we’re looking at the new Postbox 3, which has been given an overhaul to compete with the new Mail 5 found in Lion. [Read more...]

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S Review

You’d be forgiven for not noticing the arrival of Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Arc S in the smartphone market when it was launched a few months ago. After all, it’s becoming harder to differentiate between the phones that carry the “Xperia” name as the branding is used on more models every quarter.

The last time we took a look at a Sony Ericsson device was back in September 2011 when we reviewed the Xperia Neo and although it felt like an Xperia Play without the ‘Play’, it definitely hit the mark for its price point. [Read more...]

Free ‘Joe Danger’ Christmas Special Edition DLC On Xbox 360

santa_danger_dlcAlong with the release of the Joe Danger Special Edition on Xbox 360, Hello Games are throwing out some free, yes that’s right, FREE, festive DLC from 21st December. In case you weren’t aware, it’s nearly Christmas so in keeping with the festive season, you’ll be able to download the Santa DLC which includes a Santa costume, new Quad bike and, when selected, it will snow whilst you’re performing some sick tricks throughout the game.

Not only do you get a new vehicle in the Quad bike, but the controls are slightly different to the bike in that the ATV is faster and more bouncy. So if you’ve already mastered some tricks on the bike then you’ll have to ho-ho-hone your skills once again and try the new Quadbike across all the courses in the game.

Google Jazzes Up Its Homepage With Some HTML5 Festivities

google-festive-logoAre you feeling Christmassy yet? Because Google sure is! The search giant has updated its homepage with a few Christmas Easter eggs (or something to that effect… you know what I mean) for you to find over the festive season, and they’ve been making the rounds across the blogosphere today.

Using a browser that supports HTML5 (that doesn’t include older version of Internet Explorer, so if you’re reading this from work you may as well give up all hope right now), if you go to the Google homepage and type “let it snow” the screen will start to fill with virtual snow, which you can rub away to reveal the search results underneath with your cursor.

If you’re celebrating Hanukkah over the holiday season, then you may also get a kick out of the festive banner placed above results when you search for it. If you’re too lazy to try them out for yourself then you can admire the screenshots below, but “let it snow” is well worth seeing in all of its glory. [Read more...]

What’s The Most Wanted Gadgets For Christmas 2011?…Well It’s Good News For Apple, Again!

Apple_iPad_2Although unseasonably warm weather continues to hamper high-street Christmas sales, and another recession still looms ominously in the background, people are already well into the mindset of deciding what they would like and it seems that ‘all they want for Christmas’ is a gadget. And preferably one with a small silver Apple on it.

Yes it’s that time of year already when the consumer gloves come off and the annual hotly contested competition for the highest Christmas sales begins. Last year we saw Apple leading the way with the iPad being the most desired gadget followed closely by the iPhone 4 with the Kindle, TomTom Sat Nav and the Sony Playstation Move bringing up the rear. Now have surveyed the same number (3,000) of people again and the results show a very interesting trend.

Amazon’s Kindle Fire May Land In The UK By January 2012

amazon-kindle-fireAre you still getting over the immense disappointment of not being able to ask Father Christmas for a Kindle Fire this month? Unfortunately that’s not going to change before the year is out, but you may well be able to get hold of one as early as next month if reports from Know Your Mobile are to be believed.

Unfortunately, Know Your Mobile’s source didn’t divulge any information regarding pricing or even a precise release date, but considering how well Amazon’s aggressive pricing strategy has worked in the US since the release of the Fire on the other side of the pond, you can bet that it will be priced significantly lower than the iPad to attract consumers away from the world of Apple.
