Tech News Roundup for Friday April 17th 2015


So it’s Friday and for whatever reason I was up almost 45 minutes before my alarm was set to go off so I figured why not post the news. This time we’ve got a lot of phone reviews, well more than usual anyway, I think there’s six of the them down in the mobile section. There’s also a couple contests going on too in the assorted section. Oh, anyone looking to do some writing? We’re always looking for writers, yeah there’s no pay, but maybe in the future and maybe get to review some stuff too eventually… So read the news..
