Asus pushes upmarket with Zenbook UX301
Posted on 20-Sep-2014 14:25

Asus is best known for mid-price PCs and tablets in New Zealand. It aims to change that with the upmarket Zenbook UX301. Ultrabooks tend to be better made and more elegantly designs than everyday notebooks. Asus pulled out the stops building the Zenbook UX301. Like most Ultrabooks it’s well engineered and nice looking. The metal […]... Comments (Comments)


Touch Voicemail iPhone app makes smartphones smarter
Posted on 17-Sep-2014 12:35

Modern cellphones are smart, but that’s not what it feels like when it comes to voicemail. Until now the only way to get at missed incoming messages is to call your phone network’s voicemail service, wade through clumsy prompts and listen to messages one-by-one. Vodafone, Spark and 2degrees all say they have visual voicemail apps on […]... Comments (Comments)

As a semi frequent visitor to Sydney I typically tend to stay in the CBD. As I was recently there for a long weekend I decided to spend one of the nights in Coogee, a beachfront suburb in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs. Coogee Beach is one of Sydney's busiest beaches. It's not (quite) as crowded as Bondi ...

We hosted the latest Geekzone IRL at Tuihana Cafe, and I setup a webcam to catch the action in a timelapse: Since I organised this all very last minute, the setup was very basic but I think it worked really well: I had my HP Elitebook notebook plugged in as the recorder. Used a Microsoft LifeCam H...

I have a secret. We all do. How likely is it that someone else is going to hear my secret? let's forget for a second the whole digital thing, I guess that all depends on who I tell and where. For example I tell my secret to my best friend, she's pretty trustworthy and we discuss it miles away from e...
Will the iPhone 6 work in New Zealand?

It's safe to say Apple have some kick ass RF engineers working for them. Building phones with support for multiple bands and technologies isn't simple, and it's safe to say Apple have set a new benchmark with the iPhone6. No other phone on the market comes close to supporting the same number of 4G/L...

I've flown business class on Air New Zealand three times in the past year, however all these flights have been on 767-300 aircraft that feature an old style business class offering and lack lie-flat seats. A holiday to Canada and the US with three friends was the perfect opportunity to check out Air...

A friend just pointed to me that 2Degrees has the best unlimited "sharing" plans for now. If you sign up for Share Everything plan on a Freedom Term (ie No Term), it will cost you only $34.50 each for two phones, and you will get unlimited calls, txts to Aus and NZ! On top of that you get 2GB to sha...
