Handmade vs. Machine Made 

In my previous article I discussed the ongoing battle between old and new, especially when it came to technology. I touched upon some peoples preferences for handmade over mass produced by machine, giving the example of clothing, asking whether one would prefer a cheap item from their local big brand shop, or perhaps pay a little extra to get something hand knitted from a speciality store. Of course it isn’t always the case that handmade is more expensive, there is a sliding scale. If you wanted to purchase a Gucci or Dolce & Gabbana cardigan, for example, it may cost a lot more than even one painstakingly hand knitted with organic llama wool all the way over in Chile, just because of the popularity and exclusivity of the name of the brand. But there is a lot more to it than cost of course, and more examples other than just clothing.

Free Video Messaging Services

As mentioned in a previous article, two of the biggest free video messaging services today are Skype and FaceTime. When used correctly, they can be a means of maintaining and perhaps even improving your social life through easy to use interfaces that enable you to be a few clicks of a button away from seeing and hearing those dearest to you. They could be down the road or on another continent, whether it be your children, grandchildren, siblings or even just friends, having a free way to converse can be invaluable when you are unable to meet in person.
