I remember when I first saw the metal band Motley Crue. Their music, image, attitude, was a breath of fresh air to me. A combination of edginess, raw power, and glam. Then along came W.A.S.P. and my world opened even more. I opened my arms to Poison, Ratt, Warrant, Dokken, all great bands full of a lust for life and the promise of a party and a good time. But [...]
It's finally happened. I have, in my pocket, a phone that is so powerful, so fast, beautifully made, with a top notch camera, incredible chip, amazing OLED screen, that I cannot think of one single thing that Apple can do to make it any better. A couple of weeks ago I upgraded my phone to the new iPhone XS Max. I'd been used to a 'plus' or 'gigantaphone' and wasn't [...]
I just read that the film 48 Hours is getting a remake. Looking along reams of articles and announcements from film and TV studios there they are again, another remake, and a reboot of another popular film from not that long ago. How would it be if bands from the 80s that are still around, say, U2 decided that, instead of writing new songs, they would start to re-record their [...]

It's happened. It's finally happened. Apple have released a new iPhone, one that has many an Apple fanboy screaming into their screens at 12.02am as the delivery time increases with every passing minute. And I feel nothing. That's quite a shock. Some years ago I was in line at 5.30am at my nearest O2 store for the iPhone 4. It was fun. I then pre-ordered on the day of release [...]

I'll explain. My first iPhone was the 3G. It broke the mould of the phone, but had a shit camera, didn't have media texting, no cut and paste, 16GB of memory, the App store was very young, and the apps constantly crashed. But I loved it. I could see the potential. My next was the iPhone 4, then the 5, then the 6, upgrading every couple of years as the [...]
