    Picture perfect iPhones

    Life, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 25/11/2015

    » I was told last weekend about an Apple replacement programme for the iPhone 6 Plus (not the latest 6s Plus).

The 35-year-old has spoken about it extensively, probably over a hundred times all over the world in various centres and interviews -- not that it becomes any easier each time.

    Sleek solid sounds

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 25/11/2015

    » When it comes to high-end headphones, Sennheiser stands right up there with Marshall or Bose in terms of sound quality.
