Welcome to WOW weekly. This week’s edition I will be focusing on the OnHub and I have introduced a couple of new sections Tool of the Week and New Releases in Brief. Since I last posted we have had the summer holidays, 2 weeks of which we visited family in England, our first visit since Shaun passed away, and I have also started a new job in a school which has been really rewarding and it’s also lovely to socialise and meet new people. Anyhow I have decided to collect a few items from the past week and wrap it all up in my weekly blog post. Enjoy!
Samsung have confirmed that there will be no lollipop update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3. This is frustrating if you look forward to having the latest updates and features or that you feel phone has never quite reached its potential.

Since it’s release I have tested many extensions but here are some of my favourites, for a bonus I’ll throw in the ones that will make Brackets more visually appealing.

Over the years smartphones are more sophisticated and so too are the apps that you can purchase for them. Having had a pretty tough time lately, sleep was one of the things that was affected in a big way. Having barely slept in January and struggling to get back into a pattern of having several hours sleep in one go, waking up groggy and disinterested in life as a result. In the beginning of March I decided to buy an iPhone app to monitor my sleep (or lack of), something that I would say I was quite pessimistic about to start with but would the app have any effect?
