How to write Apple sycophantic articles 101

"Everyone knows Apple plans to bring Force Touch to the upcoming iPhone 6S (competitor Huawei has already copied the feature)"

So Huawei have copied a feature on a phone that doesn't officially exist yet?

"Force Touch on iPhone 6S will reportedly recognize three kinds of taps" http://www.theverge.com/2015/9/5/9267035/iphone-6s-3d-touch-display-rumor #tech #feedly

Might the secret of the new London be revealed by tracking the circuit of the railway for a single day – or just a large number of artisan bakeries?

OK, Google. What does a Time Lord look like?
The sci-fi show has always been scary, but Google's image recognition program makes it downright nightmarish

Pleasantly surprised to see the latest Freakonomics book is free on Google Play and Amazon today. It was only released in May and usually costs about six quid.

Story
Tagline
Mobile tech obsessive, martial arts fan, mad fitness training and general geeky sci fi lover
Introduction
I'm mildly obsessed with martial arts, cutting edge fitness and strength training, gadgets of all sorts, dogs, sci-fi and tech. (So if you're the same, feel free to circle me - sure we'll click)

If you're interested in general nonsense then add me to a silly people Circle.

If you're interested in X-Factor, reality TV and that sort of thing then I'm probably not someone with much to offer.

Geek, nerd, fitness fan, follower of science and lover of gadgets probably apply more.

Servant to a Jack Russell.

Trying to learn iOS development but failing miserably as I find my iPhone terribly dull.

Learning more about Android development. Failing less miserably but yeah, there is a fragmentation issue that fries my brain cells a bit.
Bragging rights
Learning Android and iOS programming by resurrecting some ancient BASIC skills. Used to be able to do one armed press ups. Might still be able to.

A local favourite, a destination for the offbeat tourist, and a great Sunday roast. Three reasons why the Mayflower is usually busy. Add in the deck overlooking the Thames and, when the sunshine bathes the pub in just the right light, there's no better place to be in London

Nice place for meetings and work. Pretty good coffee, nice biscuits but be aware it has a no alcohol policy

Small but well stocked oriental supermarket who also deliver in the local area! Well worth a visit to pick up the staples for cooking, they do a good range of dumplings, kimchi and mochi. Prices on a par with central London, which is a bit surprising, considering its location

Fantastic coffee shop in the heart of Borough. Knowledgeable, friendly staff who take care over every cup of coffee they make. Cosy surroundings and relaxing vibe

Beautiful park surrounded by some of the busiest roads in south London. An unexpected oasis with a 5km running route, tennis courts and a new BMX trail. Lovely all year round and steeped in local history.

Expect a few of the typical Chinatown clichés such as brusque service but See Woo is still one of the best places to get oriental foods and ingredients. In recent years has expanded out of the original Chinese goods to cover most areas of the Far East too

Cozy independent cinema in Bermondsey Square. Nice bar with decent coffee. Could do with fresh popcorn but they have a range of other snacks that you can crunch noisily on whilst watching a film. Well worth a visit for locals
