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. And, trust me, the manufacturers don’t want you to know about them.
Back in September, I gave up meat. But, in the last week, I’ve gone back. Am I just some snowflake or who can’t stand missing out on bacon? Needless to say, I’m not.
The reason I gave up meat in the first place was for health reasons – a mystery (to British doctors) illness keeps befalling me and meat eating appeared to be behind it. However, since giving it up, I’ve continued to have health problems so, well, it doesn’t appear to be that.
Sony have put together a great new tool, where you can create a personalised video of your time since you’ve owned a PlayStation 4. Simply head to the My PS4 Life site, make sure you’re signed in, and within a couple of minutes, they’ll generate one for you.
With your phone pretty much always with you, the idea of managing everything financially from it doesn’t seem that odd. And there are a lot of credit cards and banks out there that are a lot more integrated than anything you get from a high street bank.
Not only are the convenient and very easy to use but they’re great for travelling too.
Back in May, my eldest daughter, Laura, contacted me to see if I was interested in seeing the tour of Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds. I’ve been a fan of the musical since 1989, when I got to play my landladies vinyl copy of it. I later bought it on CD and, since then, I’ve managed to get Laura hooked too.
Laura wanted to go to the tour and it was due to be in Nottingham, near to me, in December. Would I buy her a ticket as a Christmas present? Of course.
Last Friday was the day (or rather night) of the concert and I went to it knowing nothing of what to expect. I really had no idea.
