James Ashmore In the News

Okay, so it’s a bit of a taboo subject, but we might as well get it over and done with. Last year we sort of jingly wrote about the Queen banning porn for 9 to 12-year-olds thinking it did not have a chance.

After all, nothing on the internet is completely free. However, accessing …

The following months are critical, as we’ve yet to see just how far the league is willing to go to protect their product. It could spell the end of Kodi as a cheap alternative to paying for a subscription, …
