A tour of some of the tools and consumables that I use - and find useful - when building and repairing PCs and consumer electronics devices.
There have been numerous claims made that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are waterproof and that Apple has kept this feature a secret. There's a good reason why Apple doesn't publicized this.
Yesterday Microsoft unveiled the Surface Pro 4, which, in the company's words is "the tablet that can replace your laptop." Then, as part of a "one more thing" reveal, it also unveiled a new laptop, the Surface Book.
If my inbox is anything to go by, there's one question about the new iPhone 6s that Apple hasn't answered satisfactorily - does it bend? Also, can it survive five minutes in boiling water?
Android tablets are enjoying a big surge in activations among enterprise users, to the point that in some industries Android is now leading iOS. And it's no wonder given the quality of the tablets on offer.
There's never been a better time to buy an Android smartphone. Not only is there a huge array of different handsets from a multitude of manufacturers to choose from, but what you get for your money is simply incredible.
Apple is scheduled to release the next version of OS X - OS X 10.11 'El Capitan' - later today, which means that you still have time to carry out some last-minute preparations ahead of the upgrade.
The A9 processor, 3D Touch, upgraded camera, Gorilla Glass 4, strengthened aluminum frame and the new Taptic engine only add $16 to the overall bill of materials (BOM) of the new iPhone 6s Plus compared to the iPhone 6 Plus.

Want to get inside one of your electronic gizmos but there's a "Warranty Void If Removed" stickers standing between you and the freedom to tinker? Fear not, for there are ways and means that will allow you to take back ownership of your devices.
iOS 9.0.1 has arrived, and it squashes one particularly nasty bug.
Unless you've been living in a cave on Mars with your fingers firmly embedded in your ears then you'll know that Apple has released iOS 9 and iPhone and iPad owners are burning up the wires and airwaves downloading it to their devices. But I'm here to tell you that iOS 9 is not all fun and games.
iOS 9, which was released only five days ago, now powers over 50 percent of iPhone and iPads, according to Apple.
If you've upgraded your iPhone or iPad to iOS 9 and it is stuck on the 'Slide to Upgrade' screen, this is the fix you're looking for.
While Microsoft continues to document security updates, those whose job it is to deploy and maintain Windows 10 receive no official information on what non-security updates are being pushed to the platform.
If you own a smartphone then that sinking feeling you get as you watch your battery life tick away faster than your day will be all too familiar. The new Low Power Mode feature built into iOS 9 can help to alleviate that anxiety, but don't expect miracles.
So, let's cut to the chase. You're ready to pull the trigger on a new iPhone or iPad purchase but you're wondering if you can cheap out and get the 16GB model. Answer these simple questions to find out.
Microsoft is pushing the Windows 10 installer files to users who have not requested them just in case they decide to upgrade.
While Apple was typically tight-lipped as to how much RAM was packed into the new iPad Pro, Adobe is far more loose-lipped.
After months of rumors and speculation, the wait is over and Apple has unveiled the new iPhone. But what makes them tick?
