Planning A Roadtrip? Check These Things Before You Go

Taking a trip can be really exciting, but if you are out and about, midway into a journey and your car breaks down, things can take a turn for the worst, the fun can be lost, and you can spend a lot of time and money sorting things out. In order to minimise the chances of this happening it is essential to check your car is road trip ready before you even set out.

Check the basics

Before you plan to take a more extended trip, you should always check your air, oil and water. These three tasks can quickly be learned, and you should ensure that for the oil and water checks you have parked on a flat hard standing rather than on a slope as this could give a false reading. Your handbook should tell you what tyre pressures you should be running, and most garages have access to airlines for about twenty pence.

Get your car serviced

Make sure you have been keeping up with servicing on your car, and if you are planning an unusually long journey consider booking a service anyway. This gives you peace of mind that your vehicle has been checked by a professional and if you are unsure about things like oil and water they can check this for you. Failure to serve a car regularly can mean a minor issue is not spotted and over time it deteriorates into a costly job that could have been avoided.

Tyres: Fittings, repair and maintenance

As well as checking the air in your tyres you should also be keeping an eye on the overall quality. Treads have a legal minimum limit, after which the tyre becomes dangerous and could fail to react when braking, or steering sharply. It also means that the rubber has worn away and this can leave the tyre more at risk of punctures or worse, a blowout, which can leave the car uncontrollable and cause an accident. Tyres should be regularly checked for nails, stones and other debris in the treads, and it is vital you have a spare tyre on board, the spare wheel is often only suitable to get you back to proper help, but some vehicles carry a full road legal spare. Even if you’re road-tripping to Scotland and need an emergency repair or replacement, you can get good quality servicing and repairs at places such as C.H. Render.

How to save money

The best way to save money when it comes to cars and road trips is to have breakdown cover should the worst happen. It can be really expensive to get your vehicle towed or repaired at the side of the road if you are not a member of a breakdown service. Check the level of cover and compare it with the journey you are going to make.

The bottom line is that being prepared for road trips is a case of being proactive, not reactive. If you carry out a range of checks and ensure that your vehicle is maintained all year round, you are less likely to have problems when heading out for a longer trip. Being reactive is not only disruptive it can also be hard on the wallet so keeping on top of basic maintenance makes a lot of sense.


Huawei Faked

Huawei Faked It?!

Allegedly Huawei faked an advert for their latest smartphone the Nova 3. Instead it is said that a full sized DSLR was used to take photos. A shot in the company’s latest commercial for the Nova 3 shows a couple arguing and then stopping momentarily to take a ‘selfie’.

The aim was to show how Huawei’s AI and camera technology can make it so that the woman doesn’t need to put her make up on. Yet it can be said that it Huawei faked it as shown by a behind the scene’s photo which was discovered on instagram by reddit user AbdullahSab3.

Caught Out?

The photo, which has since been deleted was posted on instagram by Sarah Elshamy (whom is the actress in the scene) highlights that no phone is present in the scene. Yet allegedly Huawei faked it. The gentleman is putting his hand up to the lens of the DLSR as if he is holding a phone.

While it can be stated that the ad never explicitly stated that the picture was shot on the Nova 3. However, it is implied and you can be forgiven if you didn’t think otherwise.

Yet, Android Police have pointed out that Huawei have history doing this. They were once caught photoshopping out bezels on renderings of the P8. Furthermore Huawei posted a shot on its Google+ page taken from a P9. While the EXIF data revealed that the shot was taken on a Canon EOS 5D MarkIII.(Verge)

Allegedly faking photos is one thing, but people actually use Google+? Who ever used Google+?

The Future Of Shaving – Phillips One Blade!


Are you a bearded man who needs help in sculpting that PERFECTLY shaped beard? Need help trimming down that monster beard? Well Philips have got just the tool for you….

Throughout history the fully grown beard was seen as a staple of masculinity and power. Many famous men have had beards, Emperor Hadrian sported a beard much like our own and started a trend for many Emperor’s after him, Francis Drake boasted at how he had singed the King Of Spain’s beard. Then came the 20th Century and the fresh faced look (aka like a baby) became a dominant tone. Then came the tools to sculpt the cleaner look, and the male grooming market boomed, and now we have the popularity of the beard and most famously the “Hipster Beard” and grooming tools for hipsters and those wanting a cleaner look started to look a little stale.

Until now! The Philips One Blade, a tool that even Thor himself would be jealous of, is not a shaver or a trimmer – its just a blade. One Blade. (Which can be used either for a wet or dry shave) Giving the ease of use and functionality that no other blade gives in being able to achieve a wide variety of facial hair styles, be that a rough and ready stubble look or the longer bearded men among us the Philips One Blade can help with that. All by combining rotary shaver and the regular trimmers in one tool no man shall have any excuse for a poorly tamed beard.
