What's there to say really? I enjoy most things and have quite an eclectic taste in music, books, films and games, so I'll pretty much review anything!

I dropped my iPhone 5 within 2 days of buying it on some cobblestones in Munich (sober!), massive great dent on the corner. So ever since, I have needed to have it in a case to prevent any future misdemeanours!

Definitely a more "considered" purchase.
