NORAD Tracks Santa – Follow the big lad as the presents get delivered!

 NORAD Tracks Santa
NORAD Tracks Santa

As soon as Christmas Eve kicks off (in Samoa and Christmas Island) Santa gets busy to get all the presents delivered to all the people of the world.

If you are lucky the Santa might be brining you a new bike, bike parts or if not it may be a bag of coal for you!

Whatever you hope for and where ever you are I wish you a very Merry Christmas and I hope Santa is good to you.

To make things easy for you I have spoken to NORAD and Santa and TBNI / T80GSA will be live streaming Santa and his trip around the globe. So if you need to know where he is, maybe to get the kids off to sleep, or maybe to get your overly excitable other half to bed we’ll be right here keeping you all up to date from the early hours of Christmas Eve.

Happy a good one! Merry Christmas!

Apple TV+ 1 Year Free Trial Not Showing Up?

Apple TV+ launched on 1st November 2019, and if you purchased an iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod Touch or Mac (iMac, MacBook Air / Pro, iMac etc) after 10th September 2019 then you will be eligible for an Apple TV+ 1 Year Free Trial!

NOTE : You only have a limited time to take up this offer. I believe that limited time is 3 months so do not hang about too long.

However some users are reporting that when they go into their Apple TV app on their device it seems to only be offering 7 days of a trial – then the billing starts at £4.99 / month.

There is a very easy work around for this issue (I was one such user who experienced this).

Bumblebee Movie – A 1 Minute Review

Bumblebee Movie
Bumblebee Movie

As a huge fan of Transformers when the trailer dropped for an origin movie for Bumblebee it would be fair to say I was excited.

The movie was released and off I zipped to the cinema.

Movie Synopsis :

“On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.”

I don’t like to read too much about movies before I see them, but one preview I did read stated this :

“The perfect blend of action, heart and humour.”

Playstation 4 Pro 500 Million Limited Edition Pre-Order Problems : Do NOT Buy from the eBay Scalpers!

Say NO to the eBay Scalpers. It is the only way to beat them.
Say NO to the eBay Scalpers. It is the only way to beat them.

Playstation 4 Pro 500 Million Limited Edition Pre-Order Problems: If you are a keen gamer there is a good chance you found yourself in the position hundreds of us found ourselves yesterday and today.  That is without a Sony Playstation 4 Pro 500 Million Limited Edition Console.

  • What is a Sony Playstation 4 Pro 500 Million Limited Edition?

Basically it is a special edition Playstation 4 Pro that celebrates the fact that Sony have now sold 500,000,000 Playstation consoles.  They have limited this edition to a mere 50,000 units globally making it actually pretty limited.  Limited of course means desirable to gamers, and unfortunately desirable to gamers means desirable to scalpers, or as I will refer to them from this point onwards – scumbags.

  • What’s so special about it?

To be honest thats a difficult question.  You can regularly and easily pick up a PS4 Pro for about £300 in a bundle.  This edition is £450, but comes with a camera, an upgraded 2TB hard drive and is housed in an awesome looking translucent blue case, each one individually numbered.  If you don’t understand the appeal then this probably isn’t the article for you and you’d be best just moving on to the next one.  If you do get it, or at least think you get it, have a look at this – I’m sure you will agree it is special!

Netflix Secret Content Codes : Find Exactly What You are Looking For – Quickly

Netflix Secret Content Codes :

Ever wondered what to watch on Netflix and got lost in a trailer loop or just got even more confused when presented with their recommendations?
