The iMac Retina makes the MacPro Quad and Six-Core Irrelevant

Call Me, iMac Pro

Along with the new iPad Air 2 last week, Apple announced the new iMac with Retina Display. From now on, I’m going to call it the iMac Pro. For quite some time, the Apple brigade have been crying out for ‘Pro’ versions of all of Apple’s hardware. I think it started with the MacBook Pro, which had been the PowerBook and if you had one, you were obviously a professional and that some how made you more of a person. That…Continue Reading »

What if the Apple logo on laptops changed?

Apple-Event

This one is from the forums and is a quick thought.  It was mentioned on 9 to 5 Mac that one analyst is saying that Apple will change the logo on the back of the Retina laptops. Given that the glowing apple has become as common place as rectangle phones, changing it would make it clear to people that a new computer was being used and not one from 10 years ago. Then I had a though. Looking at the…Continue Reading »

iPhone 6 Plus Review – A week in widescreen

iPhone 6 Plus Reivew

It took me a bit longer to get my hands on a new iPhone this year, which is odd, as there’s a lot of it to get hold of. As mentioned every year on this site, with iPhone reviews, I always elect to spend a week with the device so that I can give a balanced and fair minded analysis. Let’s get in to some of the headline specs where the 6 Plus is concerned and then get in to…Continue Reading »

Audi S1 Video Review

Audi S1 Review

Another video review! Yes, but this time with an important twist. This is a team up video with our good friends at Engage Sport Mode. In this 13 minute review we get to grips with the hottest, littlest Audi money can buy and see what it would be like to live with this pocket rocket. From geek perspective, the S1 has a lot going for it. It’s engine is the same you’ll find in the Golf GTI, but in the…Continue Reading »

How not getting what I wanted meant I dodged a bullet

Clickbait everywhere

Earlier this year an opportunity came my way. After spying a tweet from a prolific technology blog looking for new contributors, I figured that I would have nothing to loose by giving it a shot. Emails were sent and the first round of articles quickly followed. Some days passed and I received a flow up email from said top 3 tech site. They like what they had read and we’re hoping that I could do something more for them and…Continue Reading »

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Launch and Hands on

iPhone 6 & Plus Launch

With the iPhone 6 launch been and gone it’s time to reflect on what has been undoubtably Apple’s largest ever product launch.  I’ll get this bit out of the way first; I don’t have an iPhone 6 yet. Unfortunately, I had pre-arranged to get my iPhone of choice (A 6 Plus, 64GB in Space Grey) at my local Phones 4U on the morning of launch. Having arranged this on the Friday, there was no need to order a device directly…Continue Reading »

Fiat 500L Video Review

Fiat 500L Review

Well, this is the first, but by no means last video review to appear on Tame Geek. It just so happens that this first review is of a car (and the next few will be too)  that was, well, not the best thing I’ve driven. The Fiat 500L is a people carrier born out of the relaunched 500 from a few years ago. The smaller ‘proper’ 500 is actually a favourite little car  of mine. I like the styling and it…Continue Reading »

The iPhone 6 – What you need to know

New iPhone 6

The day has come. The leaks all stop and the device is confirmed. The new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been formally announced and bring with them almost no features that had not already been leaked over the last few months. Does that make the announcement any less important? Of course not! Let’s look in to what you need to know about the best phones money can buy for the next 12 months. The most popular questions are…Continue Reading »

It’s not the iWatch – It’s the (Apple)Watch

New Watch

In the past, there have been three big, unannounced Apple products; A larger screen iPhone, an Apple Television and an iWatch. With the September 2014 event, Apple have announced two of these products. The iWatch is real and it is coming. During the presentation on Tuesday, the update to the iPhone was handled so quickly, it almost seemed to de-value what it was. The iWatch section of the keynote was over an hour. So what’s the news? Well, first off,…Continue Reading »
