Speck Presidio Clear Case Review

Cases always cause me an issue. The manufacturers spend hundreds of hours designing the phone so it looks its best. They shave millimetres and dropping grammes to make it as sleek and pleasing to hold as possible. However, every handset seems to make a bid for freedom at …

The M6 Toll – Not quite contactless, actually

Yesterday, for a special treat, I used the M6 Toll road. It’s just a couple of miles from my house and takes around 20 minutes off my journey but I, along with many, many, many other people, simply don’t use it due to the insane cost. At £5.50 …
