About Last Night (Ghost Hackers Book 1) by T Paulin
This rather short book (or long short story) is the 'pilot episode' for a series that I hope does get made. I like my reading to be light and entertaining, and this fits the bill nicely. It takes place post-sci-fi-horror event, which is gradually described, but not yet fully explained. The characters are introduced and built up very nicely, with plenty of scope for development in later installments. The story needs to sketched out for the reader first, and then coloured in later.

This was recommended to me on the strength of 'if you like Douglas Adams...', which I… Read more

These earphones will not disappoint you if paired with suitable hardware. I use mine with my Sony Walkman phone and the combination is truly awesome. Unlike unlucky iPhone users I am able to control the volume from my phone.

First off, a correction to the product spec as advertised here: the VGN-FW21Z has a 1920x1080 resolution display.

I bought this laptop after a LOT of deliberation, finally won over by the high resolution of the display which is necessary for my work.

The case is plastic and magnesium alloy which gives an interesting feel. It has sleek curves (apart from the raised speaker/vent area) and looks fantastic after you've removed the numerous feature stickers from it! The screen surround is very simple (flat) and not too wide (8mm sides, 16mm top to accommodate the webcam). It is sprung so that it snaps closed but there is no catch. The mouse panel is large and comfortable to… Read more
