A 90's kid, who has witnessed the evolution of technology - from landline to smartphones. Been there, used that! Love trying out new gadgets and writing about them.
  • The thing that should alarm Apple isn’t this poll which looks like it’s using data from last year. It’s the fact that in 2016 their smartphone sales and revenue have dropped for the first time in like a decade, and the Galaxy S7 is making a killing in the US.
