I’ve shared my favourite things so here are my biggest letdowns. Star Wars Battlefront II : I don’t think I need to highlight the loot crate situation that highlighted EA’s greed to everyone.

I have experienced shoulder, hand and wrist pain over the years of working on a computer for 8 hours a day andContinue reading “CAN AN IPAD HELP WITH RSI?”
I’ve had about 2 hours with the Sphero R2-D2 so wanted to share a few of my thoughts on using it so far. (For context I already own the Sphero BB-8 and am using on iOS). The box is beautifully made and the unboxing experience is a step up from BB-8 Couldn’t see any instructionsContinue reading “Sphero R2-D2: Initial impressions”
