0 comments, 30/09/2014, by in MOVIES

Everyone love The Matrix. What wasn't to love? It had action scenes we hadn't seen at the time and a pseudo-intellectual "what does it all mean?" plot line. Plus lots of leather pants.

0 comments, 19/09/2014, by in TECH

I could rant for hours about how much I despise the Cult of Apple. About how the "new" features in the iPhone 6, like widgets, have existed on other operating systems for years.
