Why isn’t the West End wising up to social?

I managed to catch a show this weekend. If naive but ultimately disillusioned missionaries travelling to Africa to fabricate gospel in order to rescue a village from a tribal warlord intent on performing female circumcision says “break out the jazz hands” then you need to see The Book of Mormon. Although it’s not the obvious ...

An evening ride with @Pebble and @Runkeeper

An evening ride with @Pebble and @Runkeeper
Much excitement this afternoon when I saw the Runkeeper iOS app update with Pebble integration. It couldn’t have come at a better time, I just upgraded my phone and don’t yet have a handlebar mount for the new handset. The past few rides have been a sad and empty data-less place.

Time for Angry Birds studio

Time for Angry Birds studio
Today’s big idea is to launch a “design studio” app for Angry Birds. The ambition is to give anyone the ability to design a custom image for each type of bird and for each type of pig (either by drawing or by uploading a pre-existing image). These would be available to integrate into any version ...

A week with @pebble

A week with @pebble
I’m not normally a particularly impulsive person. I like to research new kit thoroughly before committing my two bob. I am also not particularly patient so buying into a 6 month wait would not ordinarily appeal to me. So when Pebble came along, it was uncharacteristic of me to buy into the Kickstarter project. I ...

Progress is in the eye of the beholder #travel

I’ve been packing for an upcoming family trip to Australia. Aside from the usual clothes, toiletries, etc. there’s the usual bits and bobs you need on a trip – camera and something to read. Bits and bobs for Dave’s first visit to Aus – about 1993 Camera Spare film A few paperbacks   Bits and ...

What should the Nando’s app do? // @Nandos_Official

Whenever a restaurant doesn’t either have a mobile friendly website (including a nearest shop locator) or a mobile app, I just think they’re missing a trick. It seems reasonably obvious that you’d want customers to find you easily. And if they’re on your site / using your app, throw in a few other bits and ...

Is 2012 the year of the health sensor <-> app <-> web tipping point?

There’s never been a shortage of people looking to lose weight, get fit and generally improve their health. And the turn of the year always seems to bring out the best of intentions. 2012 feels a bit different, it seems that suddenly there is a tipping point of fitness / health devices and associated, usually ...

Madness on the HP site: same product, different pages, different prices //@HPUK
I had been looking for a wireless / AirPrint printer for a while and had found this one over the December break. It wasn’t worth £150 to me (the price a few weeks back) but when I stumbled upon it at £70 it was a definite buy. Price – £70 I was waxing lyrical about ...
