I have been using the fitbit flex for about five months now. But first a little background so you can understand my situation.

I am a gadget freak. I love tech. I have an iPad, a smart phone, a powerful PC, a laptop, games consoles and well you get the point. If it is shiny and goes ping I want one (I'm a gadget magpie).

In the span of the last year I have gone through all of the Cormack books followed by the series based around the Spatterjay virus. Looking for something new to read I came across this on Amazon.

The parasite is actually the second of his published books, more a novella than on his main books. Written 5 years before the Polity would be unleashed on the world. Yet on reading this book you find that much of the ground work for what would become the Polity is in… Read more
