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 ...

Retiring MyMobilestream // Accepting the inevitability of Instagram
For some time now I’ve been delaying the inevitable. A couple of years ago I setup a photo blog to share interesting things that I spotted on my daily out and abouts. At the time, I just wanted to see if I could get it all setup seamlessly so I’d email a photo from the ...

I think we need an e-petition for more server power on the e-petition site #londonriots

I think we need an e-petition for more server power on the e-petition site #londonriots
It seems all the talk today is about the e-petition to take away benefits from convicted looters. I’m not convinced it’ll solve the problem as it doesn’t tackle cause, but that’s a longer conversation for another time. Most importantly, its good that people are engaging government though. The e-petitions site may be accessible again by ...

A question for @AmazonUK, how come some orders are “shipped” and others are “dispatched”?

A question for @AmazonUK, how come some orders are
Amazon has recently taken a chunk out of my credit card bill and I noticed this inconsistency. Curiosity has got the better of me and I am interested to know why. Tell your worldFacebookTwitterLinkedInGoogleEmailPrintMorePinterestRedditTumblr

Some of my best pics / playing with @500px
Following a tipoff from The Next Web, I created a 500px gallery of some of my favourite shots over the years. The 20 shot limit (for free accounts) was quite challenging, how do you choose 20 top pics from a heaving hard drive of plenty? I decided to focus on some of my favourite shots ...

Worryingly, I am depressed in Japanese

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 ...
