iPad runs Windows 95, universe stays intact

Possible uses include: Checking your Compuserve account and reminiscing with Clippy about the good 'ol days

When it comes to iOS downgrading, most people talk about reverting to an older version of the operating system, like going from iOS 4 back to 3.2. The guy who posted this video to YouTube clearly has an entirely different definition.

YouTube user MSComputerVideos has posted a step-by-step video tutorial about how to get your iPad to run Windows 3.1 and 95. A warning to hipsters: Don't try this at home. You'll explode from the sheer irony of the situation.

Possible uses include: Checking your Compuserve account and reminiscing with Clippy about the good 'ol days, before colors went beyond 16-bit and the Internet was filled with pictures of lolcats.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
