Asus ZenPad 3S 10 review

We’ve been working with ASUS, trying out some of their latest tech in a family setting, to see if we can work out from a baffling array of options which is best for which job in the house. This week my gaze turned to the Asus ZenPad 3S 10 review – which was snaffled swiftly away by the 14yr old, and borrowed heavily when his back is turned by the 10yr old. They’ve been so busy with it that I’d barely had a...

Honestly? I didn’t get it (or the Asus ZenBook Flip UX360CA Review )

When Asus sent me the ZenBook Flip (the UX360CA model, for those to whom the extra letters matter) I’ll be honest. I didn’t really get it. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I know why I love my tablet. I also know why I need a laptop. But a hybrid laptop? Why do I need something that can’t make up its mind (*whispers* and probably therefore ends up doing neither properly)?  On unpacking I was actually surprised –...

We’ve been fans of Kickers as solidly reliable kids shoes ever since – they’re school shoes which are tough enough to withstand the roughest playground, but stylish enough to keep fashion-conscious tweens oh-so-happy. But even I, with my...

We found the perfect ‘good’ in-ear headphones for your fussy teen

We’re already big fans of Sennheiser (the Urbanite XL, our chosen Ultimate Headphones for your Digital Teen, are still much-loved and used daily – and astonishingly haven’t once broken), so when we were asked if we might like to try the new Momentum in-ear buds, I knew I had to say yes. not least because Teen 1 staked oldest-child-dibs on the Urbanite, and Teen 2 loves an in-ear headphone anyway. The Momentum range...

Let’s just pause to talk about The Right Click please.

Can I just interrupt the Christmas Shopping frenzy for a moment while you have a coffee? Actually, it is sort of tied in – I know a huge amount of kids will be getting some new tech for Christmas this year. And I also know that the reason we write about Tech Stuff for Baffled Parents is that so often, a child’s technical knowledge and cyber-smarts totally outstrips their parents. Which is fine, and has always been the way...
