piece written on the 23rd January 2014 by  
I've had a lot of people asking me questions recently about where to invest their money, I guess it comes from the previous posts I've written and my general interest in sharing what I learn.

Marketing & Business
piece written on the 21st January 2014 by

It was only a few years ago that I decided to move on over to Apple as my preferred supplier of hardware. After using Windows since about 199x (Win 3.1 I think it was) I managed to learn a great deal about the operating system, each time something went wrong (a lot went wrong) I was usually able to troubleshoot and solve the problem. However, with Apple products the problems never happened and using a Mac (along with...
