Five Ways To Upgrade A Room For A Young Student

Given the limited space, upgrading a student’s room to be both functional and attractive on a budget is the ultimate design challenge.

Teaching Teens To Work Beyond Negative Pressures

Adolescence is a tumultuous time for both parents and teenagers. Teenagers must contend with fluctuating hormones, awkward bodily functions and the pressure to fit in. During this time, your children are becoming adults and will begin experimenting with their sense of identity. This opens them up to potentially harmful behaviours, which is why it’s essential to equip them with the skills to work beyond negative pressures.

Automobile Ball Bearings: Where They Are And What They Do

Every day across both industry and in our private lives, ball bearings keep vehicles functioning correctly ‒ avoiding friction and supporting both radial and axial loads. Automobile ball bearings are found in everything from wheels to turbochargers and are particularly important in vehicles because they help counteract the effects of inertia. Read more below to find out more about how these widely used engineering components are used in automobiles.

A girl, a Canon EOS 750D and a Eurotrip

Under normal circumstances, I am a compact camera kind of girl. They’re small, affordable, relatively drunk-proof; and still take pretty awesome shots. But when I found out that I would be visiting Germany, Spain, Lagos in Portugal and Tangier in Morocco, I knew it was time to up my game.  So I asked the guys at Canon if I could review one of their cameras and they sent over their EOS 750D to try out. This is how it went: First impression: I love this camera! My skin looks great and selfies are

Need to Store 9.6 Brains? Here’s How! (Seriously).

What you need to know • Available in 4TB, 6TB, 8TB, 12TB (we tested the 12TB – yay us!) • Compatible with Windows XP or later, Mac OS 10.4 or later What we think you should know The WD My Book Duo is premium RAID storage (hardware that allows a PC to see multiple hard drives as a single hard drive for) packing a punch of twelve terabytes of storage.

7 Online Tools to Get You through the Varsity Blues

In December 2010, still dancing to Waka Waka with my little Zakumi, I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree. Five years later and I’m back in the game – and the landscape has changed substantially. In 2010 there were no smartphones guys. Ok, that’s a lie – but they were still relatively rare and expensive. L.A. Noire had just been released and the very first iPad came out. In short, 2010 was a loooong time ago in tech years. Flash forward to now and I’m struck with how much easier life is being a

A bit like Kourtney Kardashian – the Sony Xperia E3 Review

The only thing I like more than awesome tech is accessible awesome tech. Packing all the smartphone essentials in a R3 480 package, the Sony Xperia E3 is exactly that. The E3 is the Kourtney Kardashian of the Xperia clan – compact, less famous but still every bit as fab as the rest of the family. The E3 has everything you’ve come to expect from the Xperia range – Android KitKat, a long lasting battery and excellent usability thanks to Sony’s awesome bloatware. The phone, while not as slim as it

Marvel Unlimited lets you download comic books to your phone!

Hi my name is Lauren and I’m a comic book fanatic. And unless Alan Moore or Frank Miller is involved, I’m exclusively a Marvel Comics fan. Like Vinyl collectors, there is a sense of nostalgia and pride in collecting comic books. It’s a special community and I treasure it. But as vinyl fans must embrace MP3s, I too must embrace technology – and so I finally (and somewhat reluctantly) signed up for Marvel Unlimited.

Join the Next Galaxy with the S6? We hardly think so

On 1 March Samsung announced its 2015 flagship products – the S6 and the S6 Edge. Some say it’s an iPhone copy, others hail it as the next big thing in mobile technology. Luckily, Tech Girl was not only in Barcelona to get hands on with the phone but also at the South African live streaming to weigh in. The Samsung S6 is very pretty with its metallic tones that change in the light (I feel like I need to make “The Dress” joke here, but I suspect it’s still too sensitive for Team White and Gold).
