Hello, I am Robert G. Male. Welcome to TechStop™. Here you will find links that I think are of interest.

  • The recent unfortunate events of course shouldn't be marginalised into any kind of experiment as rudely suggested by the Twitter user quoted early on in this article.

How this will trickle down to business, and other areas of future life?
