Now TV Box Review: This £10 Box Is Miles Better Than It Should Be

A media streamer for just £10 has to be utter rubbish, surely? Not if it's actually a Roku LT underneath and subsidised by Sky.

HTC One Mini Review: Smaller Doesn't Mean Worse

So this is it; the smaller version of the HTC One that we've seen rumoured for ages now. "This," of course, is the HTC One Mini, but does it have the goods to condense what is arguably the best phone out there into a smaller package? It's a damn close call. Read More >>

HTC One Mini Strips NFC and Quad-Core Chip For Svelte 4.3" Size

It shouldn't come as too much of a surprise that the HTC One Mini is real. After all, we've been seeing it for months now, and wanting it to exist for even longer. But, unlike other manufacturers (HTC itself has been guilty of this in the past) who strip away most of the top-notch features for their smaller handsets, HTC made a conscious decision to retain as much of the grunt as possible, while keeping the price (and size) down.

Forget Google, Volvo's Spitting Out Under-the-Radar Automated Cars That You Can Actually Buy

When you think of automated, self-driving cars you probably think of Google.

Sony Xperia Tablet Z Lightning Review: The Best Tablet Sony's Ever Made, By Miles

With the Xperia Tablet Z, Sony's making a statement: It's saying that the premium, innovative Sony-of-old is back. The Sony we remember fondly from our childhoods.

Bikes are great -- cheap, light, easy to use, and super-duper-eco-friendly. But they're also tiring. I mean, all that pedalling. It's exercise. It sucks. So an electric bike, which gives you a subtle helping hand, would seem to be the best of both worlds. Read More >>

That ammonia leak on the ISS just had to be fixed, and while NASA's got robot slaves in space to do some of its bidding, there are a few things real men still have to do.
