Ask any computer science teacher in the country and they’ll tell you one simple thing. “Flash is dead.” The curriculum leader at my Secondary School, which was also my sixth form college, was particularly adamant on this issue. He would actually regularly exercise his view about flash being dead nearly every lesson when I was in year 12. The rest …

The most common question asked by my generation is not “What’s a cheeky Nando’s”, like a lot of people think it is, no it’s more like “what’s the Wi-Fi password?”.  It saddens me to think that many people are addicted to this technology that really shouldn’t dictate our lives, but it’s pretty clear that it obviously does.

Alex Computers, General Nuggets, Made You Think, Technology 0 Comments

While the majority of the internet were moronically squabbling about the colour of an unsightly blue and black dress on Friday, I decided to look up more useful things on the internet. One article that was written on engadget last Thursday particularly caught my eye and that is the fact that YouTube still isn’t actually making any money for Google. …
