OS Wars: Most Popular Operating Systems Market Share (Desktop and Mobile)

I am no subject matter expert; but I believe this subject is worth writing and thinking about. I have been using the Windows OS from the time I remember and appreciating it now after sight loss; due to a medical condition called Glaucoma; trending the Windows 10 OS on my work and home PC.

I will write more about that in some other

In this post I share with you a few tips and tricks that help me live with a life with blindness. For those who aren't aware, I lost my sight progressively due to a medical condition called Glaucoma in the year 2011. I hope what I share here is not only educative but entertaining at the same time. Just remember this I don't do different things, I do them differently!

The art of shaving: DE Safety Razors

A mundane chore of shaving is now become an art; not every morning unfortunately because I have moved on from traditional or so called modern shaving tools and techniques to better eco-friendly and luxury shaving products that take time and patience.
