I am a tech lover, not just because of my background in IT, but I love how technology is evolving each day and how we are able to do so much using it- my current craze is the passenger drone that was recently launched in Dubai, it is simply incredible, hence the need to share with fellow bloggers and writers some of the hacks I use.
