The company has now made the service public in most of Europe, which is sadly almost three months after its official release. If you sign-up for the 30-day trail, you’ll get a [...]
I need a beer, and I’m sure many of you need a drink as well. If this was five years ago, I’d be by my second pack of cigarettes, and it has to do with how furious I am right now. Let me explain why:

There’s no denying that one of the most anticipated events for this year is the one that’s happening on Monday October 29th. The internet has been flooded with leaks of all the Nexus devices that are coming, and I know a lot of us can’t wait. Now this is a different year when compared to previous.
