There are many sammiches. This is the story of mine.
Kambrook's latest kitchen gadget is cute and functional, as long as you only want one sandwich at a time.

Pirates could be in trouble, but it may only be a rather specific group of pirates...
Will the Dallas Buyers Club LLC verdict really change Australian Law? Who will buy the Surface 3? Is HBO Now worth sneaking into? All this and more in the latest Vertical Hold!

Llamas!
Fresh off a frustrating legal battle with the owners of the Atari name, Llamasoft’s Jeff “Yak” Minter has made his back catalog of 8-bit and 16-bit titles free to download -- or remake.

In which I review a wallet. Sadly, the money within was already mine.
The Bellroy Carry Out is both a very compact wallet and a solid case for phones, cards and any other kind of small object you'd care to carry around, except maybe change.

The future of razors is somewhat terrifying.
When you think of the Avengers, you probably don't think of razor blades. Apparently Gillette does.

"Officially" on BitTorrent is nice, but I have my doubts that it'll do much to sway the content thieves.
The BBC is experimenting with offering a 10 episode “box set” of Doctor Who episodes via BitTorrent. Hurrah for experimentation — but don’t expect it to change much in the way of pirate behaviour.

When you can easily access entertainment, do you really enjoy it "more", or just enjoy "more" of it?
I've had a seriously retro weekend in technology terms, and it's made me think about how improvements in technology change our appreciation for entertainment.

So very bright.
I’ve just had a brief play with Microsoft’s latest mid-range Lumia devices, the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640XL. Here’s some early impressions.

What lurks beneath the mask?
Nintendo’s latest remake is of the oddest entry in the Zelda, heralded by some as the best. Legend Of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D is still a fine game, although its mobile remake isn’t without its issues.
