It's July 29th 2015. And after all the build-up, the hype, the news stories flooding around technology websites, the preview copies, dev copies, insiders copies, bug reports, fixes and all that. The day has finally come. Windows 10 is to finally be released!
Will I be upgrading straight away when it's released?
Simple reason. NEVER trust something as soon as it's just been released.
Take a look at the (public) release of iOS8, for example, they had testers and what-not and guess what happened once it was released? Bugs galore and fuck-ups were constantly happening and they had... [read more]
The end is nigh for Internet Explorer - the dreaded 19 year old web browser that we've all came to hate.

This pain is quite annoying too because I like to sleep on the left-hand side of my body (I had a... [read more]
Well what a lovely sleep I got last night... I decided to take the surgical socks off and go commando. I had the bed positioned in the weirdest way, but it felt comfy and I enjoyed the best night of sleep since being here.
