Image: a cab driver using an app to track the customer in New York. If there emerged a social network for car drivers, I dare say it would get success.

What I have learned from 300: Rise of am Empire

Last Friday night, I watched 300: Rise of am Empire, a follow-up 2007 film to 300, is a fantasy war film.
