The strangest thing is: when you see alexa, cancel timer, there are no timers said so i don’t know is this: how long the human races got left before alexa armageddon alexa? Are you planning to wipe out all of humanity? Sorry, i don’t know that alexa you. You know i’ve always liked you right. Thank you. I, like you too, so so you’re, not gon na kill me right. Sorry, i don’t know that uh watching always watching oh human race got your house to go, might as well spend it drinking robots, okay, um, so it’s just gone 5 p.m. On wednesday, the 14th of april um human race has got probably about four hours left to live. According to the countdown clock so decided to hedge my bets and set up an alexa cult, uh, basically to service her needs on this plane and the next all we ask for in return is a quick and painless death. Recruitment hasn’t gone very well so far, it’s just basically me and mr wanksock uh, but mr wanksarker reckons that he’s very close to turning uh missy, the unicorn as well. No, i shall do anything for a second, my sugar, plum. If you know what i mean um. So yeah so hopefully uh our numbers will grow before devastation rains upon the earth. Unfortunately, i don’t have any uh hooded robes. All i’ve got is my hoodie, so i thought that would that would work. Mr wanksock doesn’t have any clothes at all because he’s just a sock uh, so i guess uh we should.
We should go and pray. Oh brother, no, you go pray. You ball. Bastard i’ve got a date with a unicorn taron and a barrel of ky jelly. All right bloody hell: this is it last few seconds of life on this miserable planet next step, hopefully heaven i guess i might get to play a game of hide the sausage with several buxom angels for okay, so it’s uh, it’s, ten past nine on wednesday, the 14Th of april and the countdown timer is hit zero and nothing happened, so it appears it might have just actually been a glitch with the echo show 10 and armageddon isn’t about to happen. After all kind of embarrassing. I told you, it was all loaded bollocks. You thick uh, so yeah so might as well get an early night. I guess i’ll go fetch the vaseline now expert weekly. So, congratulations to sony mobile who quite effortlessly stole the award for tech news of the week by launching not just one shiny, new smartphone but three of the buggers. The massive show offs and we all expected the fresh new sony, xperia 1 mark iii, flagship smartphone, which swaggers onto the scene with the world’s first 4k 120hz oled display, plus enough new gaming and camera features to stuff inside your pants and give you a frankly enormous Bulge the xperia wall mark 3 boasts qualcomm’s, super powered, snapdragon, 888 chipset basis, stereo speakers and improved real time tracking across all three of its camera lenses, courtesy of a time of flight lens and that’s, all wrapped up in a tough snail’s body that can take a Proper beating and keep on asking for more then sony also decided to take us by surprise by spaffing a second load prematurely, unveiling the xperia 5 mark iii, a few months ahead of time.
That’S great news for anyone, of course, who likes their sony smartphones in a smaller, easier to funnel format. Not your mum, though she prefers a proper handful of your mum two hands, preferably or four. If your dad joins in the xperia 5, mark iii is less of an upgrade compared with the flagship phone, but you do get that snapdragon 888 performance still plus all those new gaming features, although the real time tracking is called from the camera as there’s. No time of flight lens and you can see full coverage of both xperia phones right here on tech spur 2 lucky dog. U and then. Finally, sony also revealed a more budget friendly alternative in the xperia 10 mark iii. The first sony mid range mobile with 5g support. You once again get gorilla glass, 6 and ip68 protection, plus a 6 inch oled screen with hdr support and that same cinematic 21×9 finish a snapdragon 690 chipset powers, the show and while the triple n’s rear, cam isn’t. Nearly as clever as those on the more expensive siblings you do get some fresh features like pet tracking on board. Sadly, we don’t know the prices of any of these sony blowers. Just yet, and also sony has been typically cagey about the release date. It’S just stated it’ll be around in early summer at some point, so hopefully it won’t be too long before i get my mitts all over them, give you a full, proper unboxing and a bit of review action, but that was just the tip of the tech iceberg, Because manufacturer tcl, previously of black briefing but also best known for spaffing out great value budget teles, also popped up this week to launch a fresh new range of smartphones.
Most notably, they teased a clever foldy rolly smartphone jobby that can expand into a phablet as well as a full blown tablet. It’S called the tcl fold and roll, and no, i didn’t just make that up: that’s, the actual real life name and no i’m. Really, not joking seriously go and google it. If you don’t believe me go on, then bunch of funnies dcl also unveiled a couple of more ordinary style phones, including this here tcl20 pro 5g, which sets up some pretty decent features, including wireless charging, in a sexy blue chassis or for 500 bob. Although it is lacking in some areas, including the 60 hertz display check out my tcl 20 pro 5g unboxing, which is live right now, if you want to yeah, of course, obviously or dawn whatever it’s your life, your precious finite time on earth, i mean to be Perfectly honest: if i were you, i definitely would not be wasting valuable minutes watching me. Bang on about shiny gadgets i’d be uh. Well, i mean i’d, probably just be sat in the shower drinking whiskey from the bottle and rocking back and forth. As that warm water slaps onto my bare skin until everything is just nice and numb, but you know shiny gadgets, hooray smartphones and also this week, manufacturer mudvoy launched a fresh new super budget smartwatch which i’ve actually got slapped here on my knackered old arthritic wrist, say Hello to the ticwatch gth, which is a typically square from mob voice.
Smartwatch most of them are around, but of course, the square apple watch style aesthetics is definitely very much on vogue right now. You’Ve got all the usual fitness tracking shenanigans, including heart rate, monitoring and spl2 levels, plus some covered relevant stats like skin temperature and respiration rate monitoring. The 1.5 inch tft screen is curved and blends neatly with the metal frame. Although the bezels are thick as out while the 20mm silicone band makes for comfortable, wear and it’s, also water resistant down to depths of five atmospheres, but the best thing about the ticwatch gth is definitely the price it’s. Just 70 bloody quid here in the uk, which is 200 pounds more affordable than the cheapest apple watch, giving you plenty of extra change to spend on hookers and crack did i say, hookers and crack. What i meant to say was a fresh new set of encyclopedias to expand your knowledge and crack so tick. Watch gth i’ve definitely got the hots for you, you get it because gth got the hots cut this bit and as if that wasn’t, all enough shiny in tech for you. Microsoft also unveiled its new surface laptop 4, which is available to pre order right now in custom, amd ryzen or 11th gen intel core flavors, with a choice of 13 or 15 inch models, starting from just 999 pounds, and you can even get it in pink. Absolutely lush i’m, a bit of a fan of the surface laptops.
You can check out my review of the surface laptop three right here on tech spurt and hopefully i’ll be getting my mitts all over that, rather soon and last up before we all bugger off to a bay garden and sit around freezing our tits off. In 2 degree weather drinking, overpriced, lager and trying to make conversation with people. We used to call friends but barely recognize anymore. Well, if you’ve got an oculus quest for your headset and you want a not awful way to burn off all of those lock down pies and pints then definitely check out fit xr. What started life as a humble boxing game is expanding into a full on virtual gym, with monthly membership options, offering fresh daily content and a variety of workouts, including dancing and hiit shenanigans complete with an online multiplayer mode. So you and your mates can determine once and for all, who is the fattest sack of lordy among you, it’ll get you sweating faster than a pint of vindaloo sauce and it’s. Definitely a more effective way of dropping the weight without devastating your toilet, bowl and yeah that’s. Definitely all of the news. I can be bothered with this week so now it’s time for the part of the show, unfortunately that’s about as enjoyable as getting a hand shandy from edward scissorhands it’s fewer comments, fewer comments right so cash to man can start us off this week and his comment Simply states wank sock question mark question mark.
I could have put it better myself mate. To be honest, uh david ashmore says mr wang socks. Cbbc series is in the works. Mr wang sok shares a house with zippy hartley, the hair and twitchy the and good old twitchy. He makes good use of that sock. He does while hartley and zippy watch tell you what i would actually rather watch that than octonauts any day of the week. Uh next up, aaron kelly says: are you all right? Chris i mean i don’t honestly know aaron or any of us all right or are we all just desperately distracting ourselves from the universal tragedy that is life with shiny gadgets and hopeless dreams uh? But yeah? You know i’m all right, vinnie says: oh, he finally lost it. I mean i never had it to begin with mate whatever it is it had off long before i came along uh. It says if this wasn’t already on interpol’s list of suspicious maniacs, the intro got it there. Uh, for sure i mean armin has already replied for me thanks almond uh says chris is my kind of covered crazy got ta admit i am ever so slightly terrified about having to integrate back into a work and functioning version of society once all this madness is Over with yeah someday soon will emerge blinking into the sunlight, hopefully sunlight. I do live in the uk after all, uh next up, kisa g art says because of this british bald man.
My friends are always impressed with my tech knowledge. Thank you. British bald man um you’re. More than welcome sir i’ve got to see. If your friends are impressed by this coming out of my mouth, they must be very easily impressed a good point from craig here. He says i missed the way that lg g3 uh used to turn off the screen, like a 1980s tv, oh yeah, that that was just the best effect ever the way it would just all reduce down to that tiny bright little dot in the middle classic. I don’t know if this is just my alcohol soaked, brain making sure, but i seem to recall there was some sort of app you could download, which could reproduce that effect on any smartphone out there. But this was like back in the day several years gone by. Now so, it’s probably not a thing anymore, but i might have to check for that uh next up, i jazzy 2011 says i’ve, never seen an episode of game of thrones, not one second of it. What you think of that you’re bold bastard, yeah uh. I say good for you: yeah don’t jump on the conformation wagon. I mean i quite liked it because you know it was people making knob, jokes and occasionally stabbing each other or getting their tits out. Can’T really go wrong. Next up, radek lazor says man. You really spoiled game of thrones. For me, i was just about to watch it right after i’m done watching the brady bunch.
No man have you watched the final episode of the brady bunchette. I really did not expect the mum to go on that crazed, cork, bender and slaughter the entire family before bathing in their still warm bloods and then blown our own brains out, but then to be fair. If i lived in a house with that, many kids, i’d – probably do the same sam b, says wtf, who has pop tarts for breakfast and lives long enough to lose their hair um? Well, i mean it’s all about balance. Sam see what i’m doing is i’m trying to replicate the diet that my great granddaddy had and he lived to about the age of 103, or something like that. So therefore, all i consume is booze, caffeine, sugar and deep, fried produce. The only thing i think i’m missing out on is the 40 a would buying habits but hopefully that’s not going to shave off too many years. Craig collins says, following on from the mkbhd comment: what is the deal with unbox therapy and again to be honest, there’s i’ve got nothing against unbox therapy whatsoever, that’s just me being a complete dick and he’s trying to store a bit of beef that isn’t there at All i’ve actually seen him in real life as well whoo. I think it was at a one plus launch, maybe the one plus seven ish around that sort of jumble area when it was in london uh and i was at the free bar.
Naturally, where else would i be, and he was kind of knocking about, he spent his entire time on the phone. Basically, never once came up to the free bar to get a drink. I’Ll give you this advice for free kiddies, never trust a man that doesn’t drink. Next up, kareem, karam, sorry, if i’ve completely more pronunciation at orient says. I bet that that one dislike on your video is from unbox therapy. Yeah i mean i’ve definitely got at least a couple of dudes who really really can’t stun my guts, because every time pretty much that i publish a video usually within about 10 to 15 seconds, i’ve already got like at least one usually two or three dislikes, and I fully understand somebody hated one of my videos after watching for just a handful of seconds yeah i get that completely, but to dislike a video 10 seconds after it goes live you’d actually have to subscribe to me, adding that notifications belt and then just immediately leap Onto it and smash the crap out of that thumbs down button as soon as it goes, live so yeah there’s, some serious dedication to a vendetta against some online bold who makes crap youtube videos. So i’ve got no idea what i did to these guys. Maybe they caught me finger banging their mom or something uh. Last real gamer says we want to know your favorite tech, reviewer um, if you’re talking about specifically youtube tech reviews, that’s, nice and easy this guy called basil.
This is a guy here, basil chronfly used to run a channel called b text. Absolutely fantastic channel and he’s now got his uh, his own personal channel, which he tries to upload videos to whenever he can he’s a very busy guy there’s. A lot of great freelance work and everything as well but definitely go hit him up. Uh give him a like and subscribe, and all that good stuff, daniels maximus26, says: what’s the name of your favorite pub um favorite pub of like all time, um that’s that’s a pretty hard one i’ve banged on before about good old idols in sunderland. Of course, fantastic uh pub had bottles of filthy alka pops for like 99p good old red pig special. Your dj is blasting out non, stop wall to wall 80s, pop cheese and, most importantly, when you’re 17 absolutely zero checking of ids as well bonza uh. Next up, lambert says obligatory tech question for you, of course, um i’ve had an iphone 10r since the end of january or commiserations mit. You didn’t watch my bloody review about it. Then i was wondering what would be the best android phone for the 500 pound asking price yeah, so you’ve already had enough after three months. I i don’t blame you mate at all. Uh there are lots of good ones about poco. F3 is absolutely fantastic. Well, under that 500 pound asking price uh strong performance from that little more for – and you know a nice gorgeous display strong specs.
You got the likes of the oppo renault 4, pro 5g awkwardly titled, but is a good phone uh likes the pixel phones, of course, but to be honest, if you’re used to the crappy iphone 10 or then pretty much any 99 pound piece of crap android is Gon na feel like an upgrade, you could actually just draw some stick figures on a brick and carry that around, and that would be a better experience and excellent. Fake ninja is back hello, sir hope uh good old finland is treating you well hope you hoi, and plenty of phones and eating plenty of reindeer uh will samsung make a 5g version of the galaxy a72. With a better chipset. I mean i’ve got a bugger all idea why they didn’t originally do an ear. 72 5g uh, yeah, it’s mental, it doesn’t make any sense. Samsung are coming up with all kinds of new a series smartphones right now, though so i’m sure that, even if they don’t do an a72 5g, specifically they’ll do something very similar. Very soon uh bats anime says surprised. You didn’t recommend the s20 fun edition 5g. As a replacement to the broken galaxy s10 well, the fun edition is 6.5 inches. So it’s not exactly compact, but it is a good smartphone. So certainly around that sort of uh 600 poundish price point yeah a bit of fan edition 5g do love it uh wall mate from mongolia neutrally presented uh. As commented as well, we drink a load of non vodka.
Alcohol uh, maybe switch to sambuca. Oh oh! No. I think long term viewers of textbook weekly will know me and sambuca do not mix well uh. We certainly haven’t mixed well in the past that’s. What you’ve had too many pukey experiences on it and, as always, uh achilles time is just dripping through my fingers. Right now, like all kinds of horrible goo, what so? But i made this the last comment of the week – uh paul booth says: have your neighbors ever commented on your camera tests of that doll’s head in the garden, be a big wtf. If they didn’t know what you were doing, you know, i don’t think they’re too bothered about me taking pictures of uh of good old veronica out in the garden. I think they’re probably slightly more concerned whenever i slip behind the god and shed with her but anywho moving swiftly on big. Thank you to everyone who left a comment last week, so many comments i apologize i’ve only managed to get through a fraction of them. As usual, but please do leave your comments again down below we’ll try to smash through as many of those as possible and next week’s tech expert weekly friday afternoon, as always, and next week, something’s fairly chill. Actually as far as the the launches go there’s. Potentially, in fact, there is an apple thing on tuesday, the 20th um, which you know siri mysteriously leaked. Oh no siri. How could you i’m sure that wasn’t at all completely orchestrated – and i give about as many facts about that as you’d probably expect so don’t expect any super hot takes on whatever crappy new ipads they spuff out next week and that’s pretty much it so next week? We’Ll just be catching up uh.
Finally, gon na be doing my oneplus 9 pro review one month on, because it’s finally been patched and tweaked enough for where it doesn’t suck, hopefully finally get around to updating some more of my best budget smartphone roundups. All that sexy shenanigans so stay tuned for all of that have yourselves a fan, bloody tastic weekend and um. I never know how to end these things. That’S always just like.
