Full week off work, almost, and got a lot done around the house that had fell behind thanks to the kitchen. Also got to enjoy the iPhone X and the Xbox One X and with a fair wind I’ll get a post up later in the week on the iPhone X.
Justice League. What a mess of a film. Flimsy plot, some dodgy acting especially Ben Affleck and some amazingly bad CGI. Throw in another crap baddie and you’ve got a typical DC Universe film. Only one that I enjoyed was Wonder Woman and Gal Gadot again shines in this film. So frustrating as Zac Snyder wastes some of my favourite comics and characters with completely shite films. Don’t bother watching at the cinema, only a box office pounding will change opinions it seems.

Why Apple Should Buy Netflix – Bloomberg
Apple need to do more than this. I picked up an Apple TV 4K and while the upgrade in quality is nice, there’s so much the platform could and should do in software and with features/technology that has been obvious for years. While chasing AR and other opportunities, put some fecking effort into the Apple TV.

Jeremy Hunt humiliated by TV star who proved his boasts about NHS improvement are “total bullshit” | Political Scrapbook
This was fantastic when it played out on Twitter, but where are the opposition MP’s? Isn’t it their job and not an actor on Twitter to do this? Frustrating.
