Which? Technology news roundup, 10 January 2014CES 2014 - all the best TVs, tablets and mobiles

10 January 2014


CES 2014 has been in full swing all week, and our tech experts have been on-hand to look at all the latest greatest tech to grace the Las Vegas-based show.

The likes of Samsung, LG and Sony have been out in full force to put forward their visions of our electronic future, displaying such treats as self-curving TVs, flexible phones, foot-long tablets and heartbeat-reading smartwatches.

Away from the bright lights of CES, we also bring news of a Which? Don't Buy product, with the Argos MyTablet proving much less of a bargain than its £99 price tag might suggest.

Finally, we all get frustrated when our home internet connection begins to slowly grind to a halt. We take a look at the best ways to speed up your home broadband should something similar happen to you.

All this and more on Which? Tech Daily.

CES 2014 - we take to the floor of the world's biggest tech show

The Consumer Electronics Show is not just where the agenda for the year's technology releases is set, but also where the leading manufacturers vie to grab the headlines by teasing us with their visions of the future.

This year has been no different, with the likes of Sony, Samsung, LG and also lesser-known tech companies, such as Pebble, Razer and MakerBot, showing us everything from cinema-size curved TVs, to brushed-metal smartwatches and user-friendly 3D printers.

Without further ado we bring you the best of CES 2014:

The Argos MyTablet – a Which? Don’t Buy

The Argos MyTablet has the dubious honour of becoming the latest tech product to be deemed sufficiently bad that it gains Which? Don't Buy status.

Find out why we think this Bush-manufactured budget tablet merits the award, and, if you've bought a MyTablet let us know what you think of it.

Helpdesk Challenge – speeding up slow broadband

We've all been there, settled on our sofas with a box of popcorn, watching a movie via a video-streaming service, when... disaster – the film stops and the dreaded buffering notification appears.

We look into ways that you might be able to speed up a particularly slow broadband connection and explain who your first port of call should be if your broadband gets decidedly thin.
