The Blog

Interesting articles and videos for your perusal!


Stephen King once said: “If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”  That is why we make the time to browse the web and read as much as we can in order to bring you only the very best in blog posts.  The AAPL blog section shows exactly how passionate our team is about films, videos and technology.

Each week we strive to bring you the latest in viral videos, relevant news and interesting articles.  Our blog posts vary between great advice, awesome music videos and anything/everything video related which might have caught our eye!  Our  team of creatives are true tech junkies as well as slaves to the internet and will make sure to keep you updated on the latest buzz.

For us here at AAPL, the most important thing about our business is our clients.  We really do care and try to advise and help where possible and hopefully in between we can entertain you as well.  With weekly blog posts, we try to be as informative as possible, while at the same time not loosing you interested by keeping things appealing and entertaining.

Please feel free to share, comment or discuss if one of our blogs happen to tickle your fancy. We always enjoy reader interaction and invite you to let us know if there is anything video related, which we might not have picked up on.  We also strive in bettering ourselves and keep this in mind with every new blog we post.

So please, sit back, relax and happy reading!
