Laptops, mobile phones and tablets never seem to last any length of time these days. I remember, not too long ago, when they lasted for weeks, with still charge to spare. But there are a number of things you can do to dramatically increase the battery life, whilst significantly impairing the ability of your device. […]
I’ve had quite a year of reading. Starting for the beginning of the year… The Road to Little Dribbling: Adventures of an American in Britain by Bill Bryson The Book of the Year by No Such Thing as a Fish Scott Pilgrim, Volumes 1-6 by Bryan Lee O’Malley Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by […]
The security expert, Troy Hunt, recently Tweeted about his car purchase – a rather fabulous Mercedes… However, he ended up having to defend his choice and justify why he didn’t, instead, buy a Tesla. His arguments are good, particularly because of where he lives, and I’m siding with him myself.
