Mobile & Gadget will be offline from 6th - 7th July 2015

Due to some substantial electrical power infrastrusture work taking place at the site where Mobile and Gadget is hosted, the whole Mobile and Gadget website (and associated email) will be offline during Monday 6th July & Tuesday 7th July 2015.

I expect the outage to start early on Monday 6th July (at roughly 6 am) and for service to be resumed at about mid-day on Tuesday 7th July. At the moment I am afraid I can't be any more precise about these timings as final details are still being worked out to minimise disruption as far as possible.

The top end of digital compacts do continue to prosper though, offering a combination of bigger sensors, better lenses and faster auto-focus which entice enthusiasts and professionals alike. That's why we're excited that Sony has launched two new RX series cameras.

What to do with an old handset? Most people, especially on this site, either sell their old handsets, or give them to someone they know. Google and the manufacturers have told us to do factory resets before doing so, to make sure that your personal information is wiped from the phone, and your details are secure. Turns out, that's not quite true.
