I don’t hide that I’m a fan of Revolut. The online-only bank has taken aim at poor experiences offered by "traditional" banks and built their whole experience around simply being better.

Lads. What the hell. I've described the end of 2020 as being like that series you're watching building up to a season finale cliffhanger. But, when will the crescendo peak? Obviously, "new strain of COVID-19" and "Ireland closing border to the UK" are top of the list in terms of dramatics, but DHL suspending deliveries surely is right up...

R̶e̶v̶e̶n̶g̶e̶ ̶P̶o̶r̶n̶ Image Sharing Abuse: More Than You Think It Is

There's no denying that our phones connected to services like WhatsApp have made us all super connected. But it's also opened up a world of problems that we struggle to keep up with.

If you've found this article in 2021, it's probably because Bebo is relaunching. What a blast from the past this is! I was just on Twitter and saw Bebo was trending.
