Google Pixel XL (128GB) Review

I own a Google Pixel XL in Very Black with 128GB onboard storage. I have had a Samsung Galaxy Note since the first one. I still have my Galaxy Note 4. (Actually, I have two of them! Unfortunately, I couldn’t go any further with the Note series for two big reasons. Samsung in their <sarcasm>infinite […]

“Critic” Is My Least Favourite Job Title @auerbachkeller @stephen_wolfram @wolframresearch #computerscience

Screenshot from I usually plan for my posts, but then I’ll end up reading something which will drive me a little nuts.
