Apple’s original TV and film programming empire continues to expand through the introduction of native apps for smart TVs and other devices. My new Sony TV has the Apple TV app and fully supports AirPlay of content from the iPhone and iPad Pro, whereas the Sky Q box has just received an update to include… Continue reading Apple TV app vs. Apple TV+ app vs. Apple TV device
Not happy with the response from Sony’s TV division about their update schedule for Android TV on the Sony Bravia KD-55XH90/P, and given that the government’s advice is to continue working from home, I started looking around for a new router to replace my Ubiquiti Amplifi Wi-Fi 5 system. Now, don’t get me wrong, this… Continue reading ‘Allo, ‘Allo – this is Nighthawk calling.. again!
Well, I am very much enjoying the benefits of my new TV. I opted for a 55″ Sony Bravia KD-55XH90/P model over my previous choice, as it has full array dimming and had a better overall rating from customers. It was also on sale during the Black Friday period. It replaces the 60″ LG 60UF770V… Continue reading Sony Bravia 55″ TV KD-55XH90/P Review
Given the number of memes circulating around the internet, I decided to get it a go. Here it is – my first ever meme! Well, I thought it was amusing. The Book of Boba Fett is now streaming on Disney+ and I’ve never been happier. It is a good time to be a Star Wars… Continue reading My first ever meme…
Finding a good gaming PC these days is difficult. The main problem is getting hold of the graphics processing unit (the GPU) due to (a) the current worldwide chip shortage and (b) people buying them in bulk for cryptocurrency mining. I’m much more of a casual gamer, so I don’t need a fully-fledged desktop PC… Continue reading That new PC feel.. in the cloud: The NVIDIA GeForce Now RTX3080 Service
Even during a pandemic, one should ideally get away from their own environment once in a while to take a break from things. For me, this means getting away from the neighbours’ dog that wants to tell the world about everything that happens around it whenever it’s in the house. When it’s outside the house,… Continue reading Just barking to get away..
I was due to have a 65″ Sky Glass TV delivered and set-up this Saturday, but on Monday decided that having gone through all the latest available information from the Sky Community forums, YouTube and other bits and bobs, Sky Glass is just too new and too finicky to take on at this time, despite… Continue reading I decided that Sky’s Glass is Half Full, decided to go in a different direction..
New SuperHub 4.0 router installed (and configured in Modem mode, allowing my Amplifi network to do most of the Wi-Fi and ethernet grunt work), and I’ve got to say that the end result is pretty, pretty, pretty good. Except that Virgin Media makes you send back the old equipment. They won’t pick it up from… Continue reading Pretty, Pretty, Pretty, Pretty Good
If, like me, you have accounts with EE, O2 and Virgin Media – occasionally, just occasionally, two companies like to get it together (so to speak). With O2 and Virgin Media joining forces, my Virgin Media broadband is – apparently – going from M500 (500Mbs) to Volt Gig1 (1Gbs) free of charge. The strange thing… Continue reading 1.21 Gigawatts? Virgin Media Volt Speed Boost Shenanigans
Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital… Continue reading The Apple Watch Series 7
