I love the longer shows 😁 well done both. The quality infotainment just keeps coming! The less than long shows are not lacking either. The Longer the better. More, more, more!

Jeremy Harpham on Retro collectors are uncovering hoards of old data

More and more people are collecting vintage computers. And they’re getting more than they bargained for..! Example: One collector acquired a Macintosh SE that previously belonged to a Wyoming dermatologist and contained patient details and treatment notes. And you can imagine the porn, when people actually had to save pictures instead of surfing..! The mind boggles..!

Adrian Brain on Amazon Prime benefits for Gamers

I only found out about this by accident. If you have an AP account, each month you can grab a swag load of game stuff – including some very decent games & add-ons. Head over to https://gaming.amazon.com/home sign in with your Amazon account & grab that swag. You may need to link your id to your Steam, Epic, Origin etc accounts but that’s easy-peasy.

Pip Tomlinson on Belkin 3 in 1 charger for iPhone, AirPods and Apple Watch

I bought this a few weeks ago and I’ve been very impressed with it. It charges all three devices at the same time and uses Apple’s MagSafe connection to hold the Apple Watch and iPhone in place. It’s available in black and white and does a great job at sitting on my nightstand, looking good and charging all three devices overnight. It’s a tad pricey at its retail price of £150 but is generally available on offer between £120-£130.
