    APP OF THE DAY: VidTrim Pro review (Android)

    By 26 November 2012

    Video editing was once something of a luxury on mobile devices, but there was less of a need for it because capture was low quality and you never really wanted to do much with it. Standards have changed. Not only will your smartphone offer you the quality...

    Philips SPC1330NC Webcam pro review

    By 9 June 2009

    The Philips SPC1330NC Webcam pro, an incremental update of the SPC1300NC, is striking through its design: the chrome-effect trim gives it a retro look that will appeal to those who are bored of the average black blob of a webcam. But aside from the quirky...

    By 1 April 2009

    If you’re proud of your extensive collection of DVDs and growing army of Blu-ray titles and are partial to enjoying the odd film or three through a PC, something a little more dedicated than Windows Media Player could well be on the cards. PowerDVD...

    SAD iStudio3 - PC review

    By 1 December 2008

    Flip Mino camcorder review

    By 9 October 2008

    We liked the Flip Video Ultra Edition for its pure simplicity. But no sooner had the Ultra launched in the UK, rumours started appearing about the launch of the Mino stateside. In-between times the pocketable video camera landscape has changed. So can...

    By 18 September 2008

    Roxio’s leading media creator package has reached its twelfth incarnation, and as such has taken on a new look and a trimmed down name. Gone is Easy Media Creator, instead it’s simply known as Creator 2009 but it’s still offers the same vast array...
