Hotel Review – Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach
Posted by sbiddle on 16-Sep-2014 07:50
As a semi frequent visitor to Sydney I typically tend to stay in the CBD. As I was recently there for a long weekend I decided to spend one of the nights in Coogee, a beachfront suburb in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs. Coogee Beach is one of Sydney's busiest beaches. It's not (quite) as crowded as Bondi ...

For example I tell my secret to my best friend, she's pretty trustworthy and we discuss it miles away from e...
Will the iPhone 6 work in New Zealand?
Posted by sbiddle on 10-Sep-2014 07:36
It's safe to say Apple have some kick ass RF engineers working for them. Building phones with support for multiple bands and technologies isn't simple, and it's safe to say Apple have set a new benchmark with the iPhone6. No other phone on the market comes close to supporting the same number of 4G/L...

Flight Review NZ84
Posted by sbiddle on 8-Sep-2014 20:50
I've flown business class on Air New Zealand three times in the past year, however all these flights have been on 767-300 aircraft that feature an old style business class offering and lack lie-flat seats. A holiday to Canada and the US with three friends was the perfect opportunity to check out Air...
