I’m just going to focus on a couple of things here, because you know what this phone is and what it can do. Siri Speaks Kiwi Yes she does, and pretty well at that. Siri is the best voice recognition system I’ve used on a phone. Apart from the occasional weird word (“egg” comes to [...]
Have you ever eyed up those guys behind the decks, looking so cool with one headphone tucked against their shoulder? Ok well I have. Stop laughing
A week in the crazy life of a part-time technology reviewer. This one includes cars, boats, and MC Hammer.

I’m part-way through writing up full reviews for the games that featured on my segment on TVNZ Breakfast this morning, but in the meantime you can find these ones: Star Wars: Force [...]
