PhD student who is a serious geek and gamer
Long-term student having survived my BSc Biology degree at the University of Manchester and MRes degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Birmingham. I have just begun my four-year PhD in molecular cell biology at the Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics at King's College London.

Solihull-born, Birmingham raised, with a strong Irish Catholic background I am now an out-spoken secularist and if we're talking about religion then I would class myself as an anti-theist. 

Long-time gamer, Apple-fan, science-nerd and all round tech geek. Other interests include amateur photography, coffee, politics, electro-music, beautiful or interesting architecture and big city living.

Views expressed may provoke thought, shock and/or outrage. Enjoy!

Not if it looks like this. Looks painful >.<
Does The World Really Want An Apple SmartWatch?: Sources are reporting that Apple is finally ready to launch its iWatch product sometime in 2014. Unofficial specs include iPhone synchronization, curved HD display, and robust biometrics.

Would You Buy An Apple SmartWatch?

As an unimpressed owner of two SmartWatches, I'm hesitant to try another, even if it's from my friends in Cupertino. I've found most features to be cool and useful, but none of them game-changing or useful enough to justify the price tag. It'll be interesting to see what Apple has up its sleeve later this year.

Well seeing as I don't have an iOS device, I very much doubt I would be purchasing one! :)
