CSR Classics – iOS Game Review

Being a Blackberry user for the last two years, the world of mobile gaming has almost completely passed me by. I’m fairly sure Snake or Tetris would’ve been a bit of a stretch for my wheezing Bold. So now having escaped from the cave and got myself a nice new iPhone 5C (more on that…

Analysing the iPhone 5C/5S Launch – Fall 2013

So that’s another high-profile technology conference concluded, and another that resembled a political rally the night before the polls open. Huge promises, slick slideshows, and even a celebrity endorsement – in this case a performance from Elvis Costello.
