HubSpot Review & Rating |

Marketing automation software is designed to leverage contact interaction data to perform a series of programmed tasks. These sequences are built to, ideally, drive new contacts through the marketing pipeline into a conversion and back again for resells, upsells, and cross-sells. Within each tool, you’ll find lead-scoring packages, list-building features, contact tags, campaign rules, and everything else that helps the software automatically push the right communications to the right recipient—without continuous manual support.

Dash cam review: The Garmin Dash Cam 35 is a little bigger and better for the price

Updated August 23, 2017 to reflect a drop in price. The Garmin Dash Cam 35’s price has gone down a bit since we first included it in our dash cam roundup, so it’s now an even better deal. Unlike its DriveAssist 50LMT cousin, the single-channel Garmin Dash Cam 35 produced excellent video in all lighting conditions. And its large (for a dash cam) 3-inch display makes it a bit easier to see what’s going on than the 2-inch types used…

iOS 11 preview: Hands on with the public beta for iPad & iPhone

At WWDC 2017 on 5 June, Apple announced and demoed its new iOS 11 operating system for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

We decided to jump in, naturally, and we’ve been running the public beta for about a month.…

Panasonic Toughbook CF-33 review: A no-compromise, fully-rugged 2-in-1 detachable laptop Review

Panasonic’s Toughbook laptops, which range from ‘business ruggedised’ through ‘semi-rugged’ and up to ‘fully rugged’, are known for their ability to withstand a range of challenging conditions. The Toughbook CF-33 belongs to the latter category, and is a bulky, heavy 12-inch 2-in-1 hybrid with a detachable screen. It’s not cheap, starting at £2,627 (ex. VAT), but it sure is tough. When Panasonic announced the Toughbook CF-33 back in February, it was described as “the world’s first 3:2 aspect ratio, fully…

Samsung MU7000 Series (UN49MU7000) review

The Samsung UN49MU7000 (UE49MU7000T in the UK) isn’t the company’s most glamorous TV of 2017. It doesn’t use the South Korean manufacturer’s new QLED technology to boost the brightness and colour of its pictures, and its backlight system doesn’t support local dimming. What it does do, though, is combine an efficient smart TV system with arguably the best all-round picture quality – especially with high dynamic range sources – you can currently buy at $699 (£999). Design Samsung MU7000 Series…

Reolink Argus review: An adaptable and affordable home security camera

Completely wireless home security cameras have been a rarity, but their numbers seem to be growing thanks largely to Reolink. This year, the company has released a pair battery-powered models: the Reolink Keen, which we recently reviewed, and the Reolink Argus. The latter is an indoor/outdoor camera that strips its security features down to the bare essentials for a very budget-friendly $100. The capsule-shaped Argus is probably the smallest camera we’ve come across save for the EZViz Mini Plus—either one…

AirPods review: Apple’s AirPods bring true intelligence to wireless earbuds

Apple’s wireless AirPods, announced alongside the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus back in September 2016, finally hit the shops in December 2016 after a two-month delay. But are the wireless earbuds good enough to justify their lofty £159 price tag, and would we be happy to use them in our day-to-day life? Find out in our AirPods review.
