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 ...

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.

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 ...

It seems all the talk today is about the e-petition to take away benefits from convicted looters.

Worryingly, I am depressed in Japanese
A friend of mine tweeted that someone was looking at his blog in Japanese. That sounded interesting so I thought I would try the same. Sadly, I realised that my blog looks more sophisticated in Japanese than it does in English. Maybe that’s the novelty factor. The obvious next step was to “reverse translate” some ...

Arsenal reveals the problem with Twitter “Top Tweets”

Arsenal reveals the problem with Twitter
I just noticed this a few minutes ago. I find the BBC live football feed a few minutes behind so I turned to Twitter for confirmation of the final whistle blowing at Goodison in Arsenal’s favour. Thing is, the “Top Tweets” (at the time) talk about Fabregas’ second goal a few minutes into the second ...
