Apple mum as Mac owners tussle with Yosemite over Wi-Fi problems

3 comments, most recent: Mike said on : "

I have three PCs in my extended family and all had WiFi connection issues after upgrading to Windows 8, which took multiple driver and OS updates to resolve completely. Whereas I also have three Apple Macs in my extended family and all have been upgraded to Yosemitie without any WiFi issues.

WiFi does seem to be a problematic area for interoperability issues and seems to take time to eradicate issues when they turn up. If a small percentage of Mac upgrades are having issues I am confident they will be resolved fairly quickly. As always, if your machine is critical, you should always wait for the first major update before taking the upgrade plunge!

Nexus 6 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 comparison: What's the best Android phablet?

27 comments, most recent: Steve Mills said on : "

The Note 4 beats the Nexus 6 in every category? Even though the Nexus 6 has the bigger screen with more accurate color reproduction and has the superior version of Android? And it has a much more attractive design (tacky feaux leather on the Note again, seriously Samsung?) I think not. The Nexus 6 is the clear winner. I am very glad I held off on preordering the Note 4 in the hopes that the Nexus 6 would be better, which it obviously is.

I think we should just forget about Kid tablets built for kids. Rather, quality cheap tablets built for adults are better. Uh, the design of kid tablets! Bleh, uh


Nokia Lumia 820 vs Nokia Lumia 830 comparison: What's the difference between the Lumia 820 and Lumia 830?

2 comments, most recent: ThomasDelange said on : "

At first glance, the Nokia Lumia 820 and Lumia 830 look quite similar, with a squared, blocky design. On closer inspection, though, it quickly becomes clear that the Nokia Lumia 830 has a much sleeker and more sopisticated design, with thinner bezels, a new rounded camera housing on the rear and new colour options. It's available in orange, green, white or black, whereas the Lumia 820 is available in red, yellow, blue, purple, grey white or black.

Compro C200 Plus review

7 comments, most recent: Mr Techy said on 19 January 2011: "Although it was easy to set up, recording from decent quality VHS produced mediocre results. Any slight glitches in analogue tapes were much more pronounced rendering some clips unwatchable. Analogue tape owners should look elsewhere."

Apple MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010) 2.66GHz Core i7 review

5 comments, most recent: fubar1977 said on 17 January 2011: "Overall experience has been fantastic, this machine just does all I ask it to and has given me no problems at all. Buying a Macbook Pro has been a "leap of faith" that has paid off in every respect, only complaints have been minor OS peculiarities that disappear with familiarity. Totally Recommended."

Epson Stylus SX215 review

2 comments, most recent: User019283029 said on 15 January 2011: "Not a bad printer, but the quirks of not being able to print in "black only" mode, and not being able to scan unless all inks are OK is annoying. Quality is pretty good otherwise though!"

PhotoBox review

1 comments, most recent: zeromarks said on 11 January 2011: "Spoiled a gift for a birthday celebration, and has made me incredibly angry. The customer service was atrocious in my opinion, I found the staff rude and unprofessional. My card still hasn’t arrived, and isn’t expected to arrive for “another 4 – 6 days”. This is in total 12 days for the printing of a simple card!"
