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 …

Alex Computers, Extreme Scoffery, General Nuggets, Get You Thinking, Made You Think, Reviews & Opinions 0 Comments

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.

Why I don’t like tablets

Alex Computers, General Nuggets, Reviews & Opinions, Technology 0 Comments

We’ve all seen the 7-10 inch screen phones that you can’t call or text from or even carry in your pocket for that matter!
