Simplisafe Wireless Home Security Review

Simple to install and very easy to use, Simplisafe is a great home alarm system which is monitored by a security firm that can call out the police on your behalf.
Should I Buy The Simplisafe Wireless Home Security System?
The Simplisafe system couldn’t be easier to self-install, but it does require a monthly subscription which could put some people off. We’d like the option of an external siren, but other than that, it’s a comprehensive smart security system.





What Is Samsung One UI?

A new user interface is coming for Samsung flagships and older models. We look at what One UI has to offer and how you can get it on your device.

At its recent annual developers conference in San Francisco, Samsung unveiled a new-look user interface that will soon be replacing the existing one found on the company’s flagship phones. One UI has modern features, layouts, and modes which could all make it a welcome upgrades for Samsung users.

We take a look at what you can expect from Samsung One UI.

How Is It Different To The Current Samsung Interface?
While the Samsung Galaxy range has been hugely popular, the user interface has been a constant bone of contention. Earlier models like the S4, S5 and S6 came with TouchWiz, which featured garish colours, way too many pre-installed apps, and generally could be a bit of a mess.

By the end of 2016 the Korean giants had fine-tuned and slimmed down the interface to the point where it was renamed the Samsung Experience. This has been the smoother software that users of the S7, S8, Note 8, S9, Note 9 and Plus models have enjoyed ever since.

Now, things are about to change again, but this time in a way that’s more than just a paint job.

One UI marks a new approach for Samsung, making it easier to use devices single-handed, helping you to focus on one thing at a time, alongside improvements to the general experience.
Settings have been grouped together into elegantly separated sections that make it easier to differentiate between things, there’s a new Night Mode that can be set to come on at specific times and works across the whole UI, and the overall approach has been to move control options to the bottom of the screen where they are nearer to your fingers.

You will also be able to swap the classic Android software buttons for swipe gestures if you prefer that method, much like on Android 9 Pie.

Which Samsung Phones Will Be Getting One UI?
So far, we know that the upcoming Galaxy S10 and Samsung’s foldable smartphone the Galaxy X/F will be getting One UI as standard. These models will also get the new interface:
  • S9
  • S9+
  • Note 9
  • S8
  • S8+
  • Note 8
When Is The One UI Release Date?
Samsung has yet to confirm the release date for One UI, but early indications are that it will be in the first few months of 2019. With the Galaxy S10 expected to arrive in February 2019, we think this is when the One UI will make its debut.

Those who have a Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+ can sign up for the Beta testing program that lets you try out One UI before it's officially released. Bear in mind that beta software can often be unreliable and buggy as it’s in the testing stage, so be prepared for some issues along the way.

To sign up you’ll first need to download the Samsung Members app or Samsung+ in the USA. Log in with your Samsung account, go to Notices and select the One UI Beta Program Registration option.
With your application submitted you now need to open up Settings > Software Updates, then tap the Download Updates Manually option. If the beta software isn’t readily available for your device, you should check back to this setting every few days until it appears.

If you’re looking for a home storage solution but can’t be bothered sourcing and installing your own disks then the WD My Cloud Mirror is an attractive option at a good price. WD My Cloud Mirror 4TB review.
Should I Buy The WD My Cloud Mirror 4TB?
When it comes to ease of use the WE My Cloud Mirror is hard to beat. Initial setup is very easy and even sorting our remote access is simple too. For sharing music, movies, photos and documents it works a treat and performance is fine. The downside is that you don’t get the huge range of apps that are available for other brands. However, if you prioritise ease of set up and ease of use the WD is worth looking at and with 4 TB of storage included for the price, it’s a great value option.

Should I buy the Drobo 5N2?
It might be relatively expensive, but the flexible RAID system that can handle multiple drives of different size could be a major cost saving for many users. The performance, build quality and expanding app selection also makes the Drobo 5N2 a highly desirable solution.

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390) Review: Hands-on

The redesigned XPS 13 2-in-1 is finally good enough to really rival Dell's traditional laptops - find out what we thought when it launched at Computex 2019.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390)?
We won't know just how well the new 10nm Intel chips perform until we get the XPS 13 2-in-1 into the office for a proper review, but on paper this looks like a very capable machine. Strong specs combined with the best of Dell's already strong XPS design language mean that not only does this look like a good convertible, it might even dethrone its clamshell cousin from the top of the laptop world.
