It was 25 years ago last week

Had my Silver Wedding Anniversary Bash over the Bank Holiday weekend. A great time was had by all. Lots of people turned up to find out how Anne has managed to put up with me for all that time. It’s made me think of what technology was available in 1988. Mobile phones existed. They were […]

BlackBerry Z10 smartphone comparison with Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone

We have a BlackBerry 10 and have put it through some rudimentary comparisons with the Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 4s1.
