Non Fungible Tokens or (NFTs) as they are known are becoming all the rage in the blockchain and crypto world.

You have probably seen the stories of individuals who have suddenly become multi-millionaires selling artwork or have been splashing enormous sums of money on NFT digital art. I mean take this guy Mike Winkelmann who is better known as Beeple. He sold his NFT artwork collection for a massive $69 million dollars at Christie's back in February. 69 million, just think about that. …

Software Design Patterns

Design patterns are a kind of template or description for software design. They can help with problem-solving in various different situations and are usually best practices that a programmer can use to solve problems when designing applications.

Effective software design requires considering issues that may not become visible until later in the implementation. Reusing design patterns helps to prevent subtle issues that can cause major problems and improves code readability for coders and architects familiar with the patterns.

Environmental danger? Should we avoid wireless charging?

Wireless charging made it into a few tech publications recently because of its efficiency issues.

I had a read of some of these articles, listened to a podcast or two, and then it got me thinking? Will these efficiency issues be a disaster for wireless charging technology.

From my own personal experience with wireless charging, I have never really found it to be absolutely necessary. I have a wireless charger I bought when the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge was released way back in 2016. …

The incorporation of technology with the human brain is potentially within sight.

Some of my all-time favorite movies, TV shows, and games share this theme of the cyberpunk / dystopian future where people in society are one with technology.


How can Blockchain be used in the real world? Is it still important?

You’ve probably heard of cryptocurrency and Bitcoin. Maybe your friends have talked in the past about it and excitedly told you about how it's going to be the next big thing and your missing out if you don’t get involved.

Bitcoin is a currency whose value soared to new highs back in 2017 and more recently its had a resurgence in the markets and is now up over $11,000 in the wake of the economic downturn that has resulted from the Covid-19 pandemic.

But have you ever really considered how Bitcoin works or what it is that allows these currencies…
