    Spinny Disks (HDDs)

    Ah spinny disks..

    BAME stands for Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic.. It's origins date back to the 1970s, but seems to have only recently started being used again by politicians following the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement and the coronavirus pandemic. It now looks likely to be scrapped from any "official"...

    The return of MSN Messenger?

    The Internet hasn't quite felt the same since Microsoft closed the MSN Messenger servers back in 2013.. Whilst it was understandable given their acquisition of Skype, there was just a certain charm that wasn't replicated on the new service. I've often wondered if Microsoft ever decided to...

    Whether it's clothing, food, gadgets, or even the shops themselves.. Brands are everywhere! Do you have any favourites that you tend to stay loyal to? For what reason(s)? Have you gone against a favourite and regretted it? I don't particularly have any favourites, or loyalty toward a brand...
