Greig started life as a bobby on the beat in London, yet couldn't keep the anarchist geek locked away, ending with him being incarcerated in a lengthy stint as a technology innovator and implementer for the Police. A lover of shiny things, he can usually be found installing some new piece of tech into his house, car, or brain. Greig loves spreading the word of innovation (and guides of how to break terms and conditions). He's a lover of live music, getting his hands dirty, and fine wine and whiskey.

Review: Alienware 18 Gaming Laptop
I’ll start this review by saying I was always a fan of Alienware when they made the craziest, meanest, kick-the-competitor-in-the-ass computers. I was excited at getting my hands on their flagship laptop, so why do I feel slightly disappointed?
