Opinionated World Just Got Overhauled

Fifty Two hours after beginning a big update to Opinionated World, we’re finally finished. It’s taken roughly 20 hours of work, with just a little more than 350 pain-staking image edits, as well as whole heap of design updates. We decided that it was time to ditch the blog feel of the website and turn our attention to Reviews. Opinionated World started out as a two man personal blog and has expanded and developed into something much greater than we would’ve imagined. At this stage, […]

iOS To Android – The Switch

I’ve just completed a week long switch from iOS to Android having been challenged by Matt to experiment with the enemy.

Not too dis-similar to the MacBook Air/Pro and the recent HP, Dell et al. laptops. Oh, and you can touch the screen, […]

A Guide To Starting Barefoot Running

I became interested in barefoot running in mid-2011 after constant use of my Terra Plana* Kariba’s and a new interest in the brand they were made by. I had never been a fan of running, much preferring to cycle everywhere. I always found running quite boring and disliked the amount of ground you could cover in a short period of time. In one hour, I could cycle 20 miles and hit 40mph down a huge hill or run just seven miles. I also knew about […]
