Game of Thrones: Who Survives the Battle Against the Dead?

With Game of Thrones largest, most epic battle set to take place in the next episode, I thought it would be interesting to give a run-down of who I think lives and dies, at least as far as this episode goes. Until this battle is over, there’s no point speculating who...

Retrospective: 2018

As the end of each year approaches, I like to look back at the past twelve months, and reflect on the events that transpired that year, and identify the trends that the year held. Each year seemingly has a theme, and 2018 was no different. The past year certainly had...

Review: iPhone X

Review: iPhone X

The iPhone X (yes, it’s pronounced “10”, not “ex”) was announced to much fanfare, and fans immediately began salivating over it. Critics argued that it was merely copying what was already out there–phones like the Galaxy S8, the LG G6, and others.
