I have an every growing collection of Pop! figures, seriously it does become very obsessive. I know that they divide opinion and seem to be a very much love or hate collectable item. I for one love them so when an advert popped up on my iPad for this game I have to admit that I was rather excited. Another way to collect POP!s but where I don’t have to find space for them to be displayed!Read More »
A very exciting new streaming service has come to the UK thanks to FilmStruck!

As part of my trip and birthday it also ended up including many upgrades to my current technology. You may or may not already know that I have had quite the Apple obsession for many years and in preparation for my iPad which I do believe is fourth generation not going to update with the new iOS when it is available in September I knew I had to update that sooner rather than later.
I sync everything from my iMac to iPad for work and other documents so it was a must really as Keynote, Pages etc would no longer be effective in the same way they currently are.
I now have no excuse about updating this blog. As now have an iPad so can work on drafts and posts on my way to work! Good times I reckon. I have tried on the past to use my iPod touch or Blackberry but find them both too small to type on, but that is not a problem with the iPad at all!
I could even watch a couple of the movies I have on iTunes. So this really does bode well for more posts on the blog. If I don’t have time to start a review when I get home from the cinema on a night time the option now is the next morning to at least start it getting my main points down before I forget. Very easy to type on this keypad great size!
Anyone else in the iPad club?
