Editor's Note

I am fascinated by Tom Hancock’s article on summer gadgets, especially the Gotoki. Having misplaced friends and family on several visits to Clumber Park, where there is no mobile signal, I think this could come in very useful!

Seven years as a manager for Dixons got me interested in technology, but 30 years later I’m finding it difficult to keep up with all the new products flooding the electronics market!

I’m amazed by what is possible. Just this week I had to transfer money to my stepdaughter. She gave me her bank details, but when I opened my banking app, it gave me the option to pay my contacts. I picked her name from the list, the app confirmed her mobile phone number and full name, I pressed a few buttons and wham! A few minutes later the money was in her account.

I find I’m getting increasingly dependent on my parking sensors, which is fine when I’m driving the main car (also automatic), but when I’m out in the YourMag vehicle it can prove a challenge! I forget to check distances when I’m reversing, and am constantly juddering to a halt at junctions because I’m still in fifth gear!

Any idea what QLED and OLED are? Don’t have space to get into this, but if you’re thinking of replacing your TV soon, you might want to do a bit of research. Ami and I were definitely blinded by science by the lady in Currys, but it also gave us food for thought!

Until next time, stay safe and be happy!
