Google’s New Chromecast – How To Add Your Own Backdrops

For those of you who don’t know, in my other life I write about technology. One of my tasks this week was to have a play with Google’s New Chromecast and overall it was a fun experience. I’d used the original and found it to be a handy device for sharing content on my smartphone […]

Coins Not Accepted Here…

After a few busy days on holiday I decided to give my wife some peace, quiet, rest and relaxation by taking the kids out on a drive to explore for a while. We ended up at the beach having fun in the sun but before that the weather was much more “moody”… or cold and […]

I don’t selfie often, but when I do…
