Is there a point in buying an iPhone 5?  On principle alone, you shouldn’t buy the newest tech toy because it inevitably comes down in price or is replaced by something better very shortly after its appearance in the market. So, is it truly worth it? Pros: The screen is bigger so that means more apps fit on it. It’s faster than the 4S.

The Tree (2010 film)

The Tree (2010)

“The Tree” is an independent movie, starring Charlotte Gainsbourg (see Melancholia), in which a young girl’s father dies when he crashes into a tree.
