c: | m:

Y'know things that are all the rage? Blogs. Everyone has one; or at least had one before Facebook, Twitter and Google+ diluted the realtime pool.

    Beware the high street sharks masquerading as “experts”. Their currency is your fear of technology, and it’s easy to turn the tables with a little confidence, saving cash in the process.

  • Driverless cars: an accident waiting to happen

    My distrust of code and programmers fuels scepticism over driverless vehicles. It’s up there with my hatred of automated checkouts. “Unexpected person in driving area”.
