The Solar Revolution Mark 2

Devotec Solar Sound 2

When we reviewed the first generation of Devotec's Solar Sound last year the main faults we could find with the device were the position of the microphone, a slight gripe over the sound quality at high volume and some concerns over build quality. We're glad to report that with the Solar Sound 2 Devotec have incrementally improved the product and solved all those issues.

Open Your Wallet

Wealth? 2 - Alex Glynn

Funny old thing, tipping. It’s not compulsory, but the majority of us seem to donate voluntarily when it comes to appreciating good service. Now that we’re supposedly emerging from the recession and venturing out to dine again, how much of a gesture are you going to make when it comes to restaurant tipping.
