I didn’t make it totally obvious but I got a new phone on Tuesday. A Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Initial reactions? The most obvious change from the Note 10 is the total 180 flip of the design. The buttons move from the left hand side of the chassis across to the right hand side.Continue reading “The Galaxy Note 20. The first few days.”
My new Galaxy Note 9 arrived. My 18 month Galaxy Note 8 has served me very well and is a device I very much love, but a few features of the Galaxy Note 9 really sold it to me.

Android really is the future – unlike Apple with it’s attempt at world domination,Continue reading “…of album releases, and stuff.”
I got a new phone this week… OK… well… a huge slab of a device, but what a device. It’s a Dell Streak, which is a mother of a 5″ screen yielding slab of technology – packed to the brim with goodies including a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, HDMI output, and to topContinue reading “Oooooh a new phone!”
