Apple to Android Tired of the look of Android 4.4 (KitKat)? Jealous of your iOS 7 friends? Firstly, jealousy gets you nowhere. Secondly, there are rumours and screenshots that point towards a flat new makeover for Android, internally codenamed "Moonshine" says Android Police. Android Police cites "sources familiar with [Android] design" who've sneakily submitted a screenshot of a new-look Android launcher screen. The new icons go crazy with drop shadows, but remove the almost cartoonish (yet colourful) look of the old icons. These proposed icons ...

Garmin Vivofit review: a step in the right direction

Garmin Vivofit "What's that?" It's a question anyone using any piece of wearable tech becomes used to pretty quickly. That makes sense, given how young the market is. Right now, the most likely answer is a fitness tracker. It also makes sense that people ask, given that the current crop of fitness trackers tend to look like props from the set of a futuristic Sci-fi movie. After a couple of weeks with the Garmin Vivofit though, I reckon things are taking a ...

h1z1 lead Sony's mystery open-world game, H1Z1 for PS4 and PC is slowly unravelling itself to us through of all things, morse code.  Its official teaser site, which paints the scene with a full moon hanging over an eerie, mountainous setting, is delicately animated save for some clouds and a single blinking light in the left hand corner.

Samsung Galaxy S5 hands on review: feature-rich with a brilliant display

GALAXY S5_White Before I even touched the Galaxy S5, which was lassoed to a glowing table at a fancy Samsung launch event, I came in with diminished expectations. I wasn't a fan of the Galaxy S4, yet I loved the S3 and S2. Samsung has embraced plastic and eschewed the full metal look, which the HTC One so beautifully rocks. It's also almost identical to the S4 in terms of hardware and design (have a gander for yourself). So do I love, ...
