Really, I went without very little and although there was never any malice or abuse there was still a spark missing. I'd look at my wife's family especially when… View More

iPhone X - Welcome to Android

Yesterday Apple unveiled a new iPhone the iPhone x (ten) and frankly It just looked like a Samsung Phone when i first saw it and I know I'm not alone in this! It just strikes me that where once apple lauded over everyone under the reign of Steve Jobs their questionable superiority, now they just seem like a rich kid always playing catchup. Although the Samsung Galaxy S8 is not without its quirks and indeed it's flaws, but it did make… View More
