What The Hell Is Happening With Mobile Phone Tech?

What the hell is happening with mobile phone tech currently? The simple answer is — not a lot.

The last big thing that I can recall happening was back in 2013, when Apple released the iPhone 5s with fingerprint scanning. While it has had its benefits, like unlocking your phone and other apps or using PayPal, but has it really taken off? Continue Reading →

6 Months of Vaping and I’m Still Not Gay

I’ve been vaping for 6 Months and I’m still not gay.

I can taste again, I can smell again, my fingers are no longer tobacco stained, my skin is apparently better looking and I’m spending much less money on vaping than I ever did cigarettes. But for some reason I’m still not attracted to other men. Continue Reading →

The Most Disturbed Advert Ever

It’s only 2017 and Skittles has already wrapped up the award for worst advertisement of the century. C’mon Skittles, what the hell were you thinking releasing this advert for Mothers Day? No way in hell will I be buying Skittles for Mothers Day, or even myself, after seeing it. Instead, now every time I see a Skittles packet I’m going to vomit a little into my mouth at the thought of this completely fucked video. Continue Reading →

Project Scorpio

Microsoft looks like it’s really starting to ramp up Project Scorpio with a preview and game details to be released at E3 in June this year — the console itself is expected to be released in Q4 2017 to coincide the Christmas holiday period.

There’s no disputing, this thing is going to be the mother of all consoles — there’s nothing close to it in terms of specs. It also means this thing isn’t going to be cheap. Continue Reading →

Self Service Checkout Rage

Self Service Checkout Rage.

Checkout.

This post may actually make me completely check the fuck out.

Self service checkouts, they’re fucking amazing. Five years ago I couldn’t have imagined walking through a supermarket without having to utter some fake small talk to a complete stranger as they packed my groceries, knowing they probably put more effort and enthusiasm into swiping away on Tinder than they do swiping your groceries barcodes.

Original XBOX Store Kiosk

The XBOX Kiosk about to make its journey home

Finally, an original Xbox store kiosk is mine.

A few years ago I heard there were a few
of these Xbox kiosks still scattered around New Zealand and that they’d occasionally pop up for sale on the auction site Trademe (New Zealand’s version of Ebay).  The original Xbox is one of, if not my favourite console of any generation
— and at least on par with the Sega Master System 2 — so when the opportunity arose to buy one, I knew I had to own it. After a stressful week of bidding and a 6-hour round trip to pick it up, the Xbox Kiosk was finally all mine. Continue Reading →

2017 Whhhhaaaattttt?

Holy Shit. Its 2017,  YOU MADE IT! Normally that’s a trivial wanker saying right up there with saying “I haven’t seen you since last year” but “You made it” actually means something to me now.

You may (or may not) have noticed there’s been fuck all going on with this site since later last year and that’s because late last year I lost a close friend to suicide. That type of shit really changes your life, it changes your perception on every fucking thing. Continue Reading →

An idiot reviews food: Whittakers K BAR Chocolate

I fucking love chocolate. My inner fatty craves it, no not just craves it — needs it. When I heard that Whittaker’s had made a chocolate block that combined New Zealand’s iconic candy/toffee — the K Bar — with chocolate, my inner fatty made me ignore the overpriced hype and buy some.

KKKBAR

KKK Uh Oh.. It better not be a sign..

Tips to improve your walking experience by an idiot

Since it’s winter and the days are shorter, I haven’t been able to get out on my bike much, but I have been walking everywhere, normally at least 5km and I’m hoping to crack a 10km this week. It’s less demanding than bike riding but it’s still plenty of exercise, so that must mean it’s good for you. I thought I’d share some of my tips to improve your walking experience so you too can become the neighbourhood’s quickest walking animal. Continue Reading →
