As I write this I have only owned the latest BlackBerry phone – the PRIV – less than 24 hours. I decided to do up a quick video summing up my first impressions of the device.
Things to note, I haven’t used an Android device full time before, so everything is kind of new, though I haven’t had it long enough to talk a lot on the software side of things. I basically just wanted to give my initial thoughts, my first reaction to things as I held the device for the first time and tried to use it.
You can give the video a watch above. I did do an unboxing and I stuck it on the end instead, it’s not the best quality so you can watch only if you wish.
I’ll have more videos to come. You can also find more write ups over on CrackBerry soon, too.
With it being summer, I thought it would be great to round up few good cases useful for when you’re working out or doing any fitness activities. I’ve tried to cater to a wide variety of sports and not just confine them to one type of workout. These cases will fit a variety of devices. Read More »
I have had a watch on my wrist since I learned to tell the time as a child. That may also be the case for others but with the rise of mobile phones I hear of many people no longer using a watch, instead just choosing to glance at their phone to get the time.
I’m definitely not a watch connoisseur who’s into the expensive brands but have alway been interested in ones that offer extra features and functions, like a stopwatch, calculator, a game and even one with a camera. Not very feminine looking watches but those were the kind of watches I was into. In some ways those watches could be called ‘smart’. Read More »
As you may know, I signed up for a 30-day blogging challenge to help me get back to blogging on my own personal site. The first four days went swimmingly, I felt on point, confident i could get through it without skipping a day. But come day 5 (and 6) I failed to put up a blog post. Read More »
I first got a fitness band on my birthday last year (2014). The Fitbit Flex to be exact and I’ve enjoyed using it ever since and I’m hoping to upgrade to a newer model soon.
While some, like me, love fitness bands, there are others who I’ve heard have bought one, worn it for one day, hit their daily target and never wore it again. Why? Because they now know their daily walking routine to and/or from work is 10,000 steps, so they’ll always know they will hit their daily target.
I’m not here to convince those people to wear one, or anyone for that matter. I just want to share why it works for me and helps to get me motivated to keep moving. Read More »
I have had a love for martial arts since I was young from watching Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan movies (before he went mainstream) since I was about 5. I was then signed up for Karate lessons when I was aged 7. I loved it a lot, I was good at it and by the time I was eleven, I was too belts away from a black belt. I’m not really sure why I stopped, I know some family events occurred around the time but I just never went back. Read More »
Some may say this should be a post that should be posted on CrackBerry.com, the BlackBerry blog I contribute to. However, the site is frequented by hardcore BlackBerry fans that I feel it would be redundant. So here I am, writing on my own blog to reach a different kind of audience. Read More »
You may have noticed that my last post here was over 6 months ago, to mark the new year. I had high hopes that I would get back to regularly posting to my personal site but alas, it didn’t quite happen. Even though you’ll find me writing articles frequently over on CrackBerry.com.
In a bid to get going again – for real this time – I signed up for a 30-day
blogging challenge to get my groove on. It’s strange, as I’ll find plenty of time to blog on other sites but always neglect my own. That’s certainly going to change, at least for the next 30 days but I hope that it will help my creative writing juices flowing to continue for months to come even if it won’t be everyday, after this challenge.

Here we are, the last day of 2014. As I write this there is just over an hour left before we ring in the New Year in the U.K. I haven’t written much on my blog the past few months but I thought I felt compelled to write, being December 31st, 2014. Read More »
You’ve probably seen lots and lots of videos of people dumping a bucket of ice water on themselves. It’s all to raise awareness for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). ALS affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal chord. You can read more about it in the link below and also make a donation.
In the U.K., ALS is know has Motor Neurone Disease (MND), while you can donate through the ALS Association website, you can also donate through the MND Association site if you prefer.
As well as making a donation myself, I took up the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and I have challenged my brother, fellow Brit CrackBerry writer, James Richardson, all of Team BlackBerry and the Mobile Nations Crew.
