Change of iTune

I always maintained that I would never own an iPhone. Android all the way. I even tested the waters with a Windows phone, but that hit the trash heap after a while - the closed environment reinforced my belief that Android was the way to go, and the lack of…

In the beginning...

...there was blog. And it was good. Actually it wasn't. It was terrible, and it's still terrible, but it's mine. I've spent the past few days importing and converting all my old legacy posts for this new blog platform, ghost. It has been time consuming, but then I'm no stranger…
