So, after a comment made by Kate, I remembered that I needed to provide an update.
I have finally sorted out the messy issue with money owing to Capital One and Natwest. The balance on Capital One was sorted out with a PPI claim and Natwest with consistent repayments every month; and guess what, it feels so good and I suppose I am quite proud of myself.
One thing to note, if you do owe Banks or any other Finance Company any money and cannot pay…do not bury the issue. Declare your Income and Expenditure to them straight away and come up with a repayment amount with them. They cannot threaten you and they cannot force you to pay more than you can afford. The law is on your side only if you work within the boundaries of the law.
Portenzo have amazing covers for the iPad and the Nexuz 7 tablets. My only problem is that they do not have outlets in Europe. Which means if I order a Pertenzo cover from the USA, not only will I be paying for silly shipping cost, I will also have to pay some silly money at the Post Office, which is something I definitely do not want to do. So wen the opportunity struck, I went to the Portenzo website, customised one to m liking and had it delivered to my brother in laws crib in Denver. When the time was right….I did not have to wait too long…I got it delivered by hand to my at home…SWEET!
This case is absolutely great and well crafted. If you are thinking of getting one, check out the company from : https://shop.portenzo.com/

Yes, it has arrived, and I am loving every minute, every feature and every function this Bad Boy of a Smart Phone has. I have loaded it up with all the essental wicked Apps from Google Play Store. I have purchased from eBay a Roxfit case for it.
Next on the list are Xperia NFC chips. Yes, these are also being bought from eBay. Who doesn’t love eBay. Recently, Samsung release the S4. Honestly, I thought I would be returning the Xperia Z [as I was still within the time frame to do so] and going for the S4. But amazingly the S4 did not tickle my fancy. It just was not up to the same spec aas the Xperia Z. Yes, the S4 was packed with features, but they were not useful features. Nothing innovative was brought to the Smartphone “table”. It will be interesting to see which mobile phone company will be creating something that will live up to what Sony have unleashed into the market. Well done Sony.
I have been on the look out for a new mobile phone for a while. At one point I decided that I would go for a Nexus 4 once my current contract with O2 came to an end. As I already have a Nexus 7 Tablet, and after looking at a lot of reviews on the Nexus 4; I concluded that the Nexus 4 would be a sensible replacement to my iPhone.
Then comes along the Sony Xperia Z, which totally blew me away. This mobile phone was actually introduced to my by my friend Ola Ajayi. After several days of him hounding me to check out the reviews on Youtube, I finally gave up to him to his nagging and headed to Youtube to watch as many reviews I could on this phone. I was totally blown away. Unbelievable. My conclusion…Sony has set the mark for what a mobile phone should be. Holy Macroni. The iPhone does not even come close. The Nexus 4 does not even see the trail the Sony Xperia leaves behind. As the rest of the other mobile phones out there – they can just forget it.
I am [or I should say, I as] a strict Apple Fan. I am still hocked to their laptops, but my love for their phones has seriously dwindle over the past year. As a result, I have jailbroken my iPhone 4S so that I can get more functionality out of it. But even jailbreaking does not provide me with the satisfaction I need from the iPhone. The question is, why does one need to Jailbreak a iPhone just to make it work?
So what do I expect from the Sony Xperia? Check out the Youtube video and draw your own conclusions.
It has been some hectic months gone by hence my inactivity on my Blog. A change in jobs which required more of my time has not made it possible for me to spend the requited time here in updating the Blog. However, things have settled down now, and hopefully I should be able to make regular updates from now on.
