Is Instagram Safe for Kids?

Instagram is a social network that, according to its makers, is all about visual storytelling. Photos and videos, in other words.

Also like Twitter, Instagram uses hashtags which lets other users find photos by looking at the hashtags people have added to their photos. Most people use the app to share stylised photos of themselves, friends, places and objects, and mostly it’s harmless fun. Celebrities and even…

How to customise your Mac’s desktop, look and wallpaper

Apple has historically been known – perhaps unfairly – as a company that likes to make decisions for its users. Steve Jobs once famously said that “a lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.” And the company still likes its OS platforms to work in a particular way, rather than allowing users to heavily customise the interface. However – in macOS at least – it’s possible to make some limited cosmetic modifications and personalise…

Tablet sales have gone off the boil, which explains why there weren’t many new models launched in 2017.

MSI Optix MAG27CQ Review: Unexpectedly Affordable 1440p Curved Monitor

Unlike the big monitor brands, MSI doesn’t have many different designs in their inventory.

The 27 Series are the most numerous with six examples, and the MSI Optix MAG27CQ reviewed here is the flagship design.

Rewire Security Spytrack Nano Review: Personal GPS Tracker

Although we all carry a GPS-equipped phone in our pockets, there’s still a place for a dedicated GPS tracker. Whether you want to monitor your employees or keep tabs on a child, a device such as the SpyTrack Nano is ideal. Unlike Bluetooth trackers, which are designed for finding lost keys, wallets and cuddly toys, GPS trackers aren’t limited to a 150m range (or less). Instead, when paired with a suitable SIM card, you can track almost anything anywhere in…

Testing and checking your broadband speed can be a useful thing to do. You can check whether you’re getting the kind of speeds advertised by your provider, whether it’s fast enough for video streaming, and whether your ping (latency) is good enough for tasks like gaming. Note that to get the best results you should make sure your internet connection isn’t being used for anything else while you test and, if possible, connect to your router via a wired ethernet…
