For those new to the Apple family, the Genius Bar is where you go for tech support, whether it is hardware or software related.

The limit for contactless payments in the United Kingdom has increased.

Review: Blue Yeti Studio recording microphone and software

08/31, 6:59pm

Despite being very familiar with Blue Microphones' lower-end products -- we've long recommended the company's Snowball line of mics for beginning podcasters or vocalists, and we were very impressed with Blue's Mo-Fi headphones -- we wanted to thoroughly test each component of the Blue Yeti Studio, which features a Yeti-class desk microphone bundled with software to enhance different types of recordings. It's a slightly pricier package than a basic starter mic for a first podcast, so is it worth it? Find out in our review.

Living with: iPhone 6

08/31, 2:11pm

The iPhone 6 is the first iPhone that I didn't want to buy. I queued for the original in 2007 and I'm not so addicted that I could tell you each model I ever had since but look at any iPhone from then to the 6 or 6 Plus and there are only two options. Either I wanted one or I got it. I was on the typical UK two-year contract that meant I would have to sit out every other model and that should've meant I was ready to buy the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus but I didn't. Not until a couple of months ago, that is.
