    Do you have any recommendations of fountain pens? I've never used one so I have no clue what to look for

  5. Comment on Spotify is asking its users if they'd subscribe to a $30/month data-only plan with Spotify Premium included in ~tech

    This would be really awsome to be honest. Using dual SIM, one for Spotify and data and another pay as you for the occasional phone call or text would be better value and makes more sense.

    I can't recommend Mr Robot enough, although it's a love it or hate it kind of show. The acting is brilliant, the cinematography is superb, and in my opinion it is just as good (and possibly better) than the like of breaking bad. I'd recommend watching the coffee shop scene to see if you'd be into it https://youtu.be/sO2raiSHOhc . The first season is a bit of a slow burn to begin with but the shoe really picks up with season 3 being one of the best bits of TV I've ever seen.

    The only downside is if you binge it now you'll have to wait for season 4, and the wait is tough :)

    This probably sounds dumb but does drinking squash count as drinking water?

    So I'm a teen and am starting a new school next year. I get a 12 week break so would really like to try and get in shape, mainly to boost self confidence. What types of exercise / diet would people recommend?

    I don't think I'd ever get skinny but I'd I could swap out some fat for muscle that would be fantastic!

    Thanks for the suggestion, it sounds like an interesting intro to arduinoing. I'll make sure to give that a try (Im pretty sure I have a temperature sensor)

    That sounds like a cool idea! I've played around with Lego mind storms before and loved it.

    Proton mail is great. I've been de-googling myself and it's a brilliant alternative to Gmail!

    Im so hyped for this game, to the point I'm considering breaking my rule of never preordering. It just looks like a culmination of every thing I find awesome! I can't wait for more info about it :)

    So I've nearly finished my exams and am going to have a bunch of free time soon. I want to try and learn to do some electronics stuff. I already have an Arduino and Pi and have done the basic flashing lights projects, but want to try something a bit more interesting (but not too expensive either)
