Here is the place where I usually write some sort of introduction - often based on something that's happening out in the big bad world. Today, however, nothing is really coming to mind so I'll skip the pleasantries and jump right to it. Here are all your lovely apps for this week. Read More >>

Easter eggs often feel like a rip off, but the most annoying thing is when the supermarkets don't discount them the day after. Imagine my shock to discover all the full-price Easter chocolate in my local Tesco Express, only for it to get discounted the next day. I don't get it really, is it now acceptable to give out eggs on Easter Monday? I'm not sure Jesus would be very happy about that. I know I'm not, I wanted some hollow chocolate shells without having to pay full price :( Read More >>

Who else doesn't give a damn about Easter, but can't help but be thankful for the four day weekend Jesus is responsible for? It's a shame it doesn't happen that often, especially since is the first time I've been employed in a such a way that lets me enjoy the Good Friday-Easter Monday break in all its glory. I'm also looking forward to the discounted eggs, because regular-priced Easter eggs are a fucking rip off. Read More >>

We're a little bit late with the apps this week, that's because a shit-load of stuff has happened - particularly the Galaxy S8. It's rather lovely looking isn't it? And DeX is, erm, something that some people might find useful. Personally I don't see much point. Anyway, let's get down to what you want: lots of lovely apps. Read More >>

Well would you look at that, it's Spring already. You know what that means, right? An increase in rain over the coming month or so, bugs, and the sun coming up before your alarm clock goes off. But misery aside, it also means being closer to days when you're able to go out without a coat, and not having to keep the heating on all the bloody time. Until the point when we need fans or air conditioning on all the time, but that's a completely different season altogether. Read More >>

I don't really have any musing to offer you all this week, it's been far too busy and I haven't had enough sleep. So, instead, let's jump straight into what we're all here for. This week we have Cortana for iOS (finally), a GIF museum from GIPHY, updates to Google's keyboard on Android, and more. Read More >>

I don't enjoy it when someone has to be in my flat to get a job done, whether it's something as simple as delivering furniture or more complicated like fixing the light sealed away inside my bathroom's ceiling. It's a little bit awkward isn't it? Especially at the times near the end when you just end up standing waiting for them to sort out paperwork or something along those lines. I can never help but wonder whether the person (or people) in question feel that atmosphere as well. Probably, but they're probably more than used to it. Read More >>

Today is the last day of the 2017 Mobile World Congress, which has brought with it... erm... not a lot actually. I know I'm not the only one who's not been that impressed with what was on show, because there wasn't really anything new. Empty promises about 5G and the internet of things were everywhere, while the only big big news involved a feature phone with no actual features. Read More >>

Anyone know of a service that can take away all the cardboard in my house? I'll pay to get rid of this shite if I need to. I moved recently, and all these boxes are still just lying around because they don't fit in my recycling bin. The council is bringing another one, but who knows how long that'll take. I would go to the nearby dump, but it's a bit of a trek and I don't have a car. I got told off for going on foot last time, which is just bizarre. Read More >>

The deal with mobile signal is pretty strange. Somehow, my grandparents who live in rural Wales manage to get better 4G signal than I did in my old house - which was in the middle of a reasonably well populated area. They also get quite fast broadband, despite the fact that the nearest supermarket (including mini things like Tesco Express) is over half an hour away by car and most of the local train stations are request only. There are probably encyclopaedia-sized reports about why, though, which would take more time than I have to read and understand. Read More >>

It doesn't matter how many things that are available to watch, you never seem to be able to find anything interesting available. It doesn't matter if you have hundreds of satellite TV channels, various streaming service subscriptions, or whatever sketchy streaming and torrent sites are at your disposal. What's up with that anyway? If anyone knows the science, I'd love to hear a tl;dr version. Read More >>

Yesterday was tax return deadline day, so you lot better have got all your returns sorted and your taxes paid. Provided you actually have to fill in a tax return. You lot get to waltz around having paid it off every month, with extra joy if you accidentally paid too much. Read More >>

It's interesting when the weather gets cold like this, because I always expect it to start snowing pretty heavily. Some places got a sprinkling here and there over the past few weeks, but nothing really that major. Well, unless you're responsible for cancellations at major rail companies. Read More >>

It's pretty chilly at the moment, which is never a good thing. Nobody likes waking up to a cold bedroom and having to gear yourself up just to get out of bed. Or having to sit around all cold while you wait for the heating to kick in properly. Someone should hand out Galaxy Note 7s to provide some instant warmth, it could help save some money on the heating bill! Read More >>
