How the 10-Year Wait for Zombieland: Double Tap Changed Everything

If a Zombieland sequel had come out less than 10 years after the original film, it would have been a very different movie, in terms of story but also quality. Over time people get older, Hollywood’s sensibilities change, and maybe some of your once up-and-coming actors win Oscars. A lot can happen in 10 years, and all of it worked to make Zombieland: Double Tap the film it is today. Read More >>

This Freaky CG Title Sequence is So Beautiful I Can’t Stop Watching

Forget the uncanny valley and not-quite-perfect CG humans freaking you out, this title sequence for London’s recent OFFF digital arts festival will make you so uncomfortable you’ll want to burn your laptop.

The Week’s Best Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone Apps

If any of you readers have Americans in your life, all you'll be hearing about until the weekend is Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Unfortunately this Thursday I'll be working rather than stuffing my face with turkey, so I'm trying to ignore the chatter.

It's getting colder, and winter has definitely arrived -- my toes can testify. Temperate climate, my arse. So I'm spending more and more time huddled at home under a blanket or at the back corner of a warm café playing with electronics -- it kind of makes me a pathetic anti-social individual, but gives me enough time (and finger mobility) to share some app favourites and new discoveries: Read More >>

The week of All Hallows' Eve, holiday of screams, scares and sweets. Or in my case the night of hiding in the living room, turning off the lights with a bottle of wine and ignoring the knocks on the door. Give me hordes of the undead over hordes of children in costume any day. Never mind, I'll survive -- I hope. These apps will be keeping me amused on the scariest night of the year (because of the children) - feel free to join me: Read More >>

After a seven day working week, sorting out taxes (October 31st deadline freelancers!) and realising I haven't been up after 5.30am any morning this week, I've started to comprehend that it's Monday again. My reliance on caffeine has reached an all time high, and I keep remembering a (day?)dream about ninjas stealing my Nespresso machine. I also think I've written an app roundup; I hope that one isn't a dream. Read More >>

It's only 88 days 'til Crimbo, aka the holiday of shopping, aka the holiday of hell. Which to me, really only means one thing: it's time to start organising. I'm heading to Colorado this year, so I have to be extra-organised. I already lost £200 by delaying the purchase of my flights by a week; here's hoping a secluded cabin in the mountains with booze for two weeks is worth it. In the meantime, here are some fabulous (mainly free) apps that were released recently. Enjoy: Read More >>

GTA V comes out tomorrow, and nobody will see me for at least a week after that. I'll be under a pizza box fort with my Xbox, becoming paler and even more socially-inept, until I joyride every vehicle and grab every one of those damn collectibles. I'm a completionist, in case you hadn't guessed. In the meantime, here are some apps I've collected on my various devices in the last week: Read More >>

In the midst of redecorating my home single-handedly (one-handedly?), I've come to the conclusion that I could never be an interior decorator. Because I. Hate. Everything. Who knew that choosing a sofa would utterly take over my life? I haven't had time to cook, and this, combined with endless work events, means I'm relying on my tech more than ever before. Here are a few things that have made my life easier in the last week: Read More >>

I'm on one of my regular nutrition buzzes this week, as I've taken on another interesting client for my nutritional consulting side-job. Spending countless hours trawling the app store for an app recommendation for him, considering he's allergic to, well, everything, has proved a challenge. Has anyone else ever tried to make a dairy, gluten, and egg-free coffee cake? The results of my latest app-squizzing are below, among many others: Read More >>

I spent the half the week going through various departments in hospital after I managed to perform the stupidest, yet most horrific, kitchen injury I've ever heard of -- to myself.
