One of the reasons I moved from my old home was the increase in the level of general background noise. I’d lived there for around 20 years, 15 of them very happily but as always, the needs of modern life always take over and you just have to accept it…or not…   read more...

While there are a lot of arguments about which operating system is better- android or iOS, opinions still remain divided. Both of them have their own set of flaws and advantages, so it basically depends on what you are looking for in a phone.
