COMPETITION: Lezyne Micro Drive Bike Light Set

See you, Jimmy!

As the nights get longer and the weather starts to hate all humankind, you can be sure that Autumn has well and truly started. In no time at all the sun will be a thing of mere memory, and bright daylight-filled afternoons something that used to happen. If you're a cyclist than this time of year can be particularly dangerous as it gets harder to be safely seen while on the road. What you need is a set of Lezyne Micro Drive bike sets, courtesy of cycling accident solicitors Cycle Aid.

REVIEW: LEGO Minifigures Series 12

Figure these out.

The crinkle-crinkle of foil bags has once again returned, as onto the doormat of Test Pit Towers has fallen yet more mysterious LEGO minifigures. Whereas last time we knew that each of the random bags would contain a character from The Simpsons, this time round we've purposely kept ourselves in the dark about who Series 12 will incarnate in plastic. We tore those bags open, assembled the pieces before the dog ate them, and met the new arrivals.

REVIEW: Logitech K480 Multidevice Bluetooth Keyboard


Touchscreen gadgets might be everywhere these days (check your pocket), and certainly they are incredibly handy, but nothing beats the convenience - and typing speed - of a physical keyboard. But as we toil away on our computers,  tablets and phones simultaneously, you might find yourself having to decide which gadget gets the keys. Until now. Logitech have stepped up the convenience quota with the K480 Multidevice Bluetooth Keyboard.
