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 ...

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 ...

Innovative solution to Olympic ticket disappointment

There’s no doubt that Olympic ticket controversy will continue to reign for some time. I too am one of the heartbroken Londoners who will be bankrolling the games but without tickets. Frankly I don’t understand why there wasn’t a leveling process across events rather than balloting only at event level. It’s too late to change ...

End of the season, end of @TheWindowBet project

At the launch of the 2010/2011 season I kicked off a little project. The general premise was to take out the bet in the bookie’s window each week and see who came out on top at the end of the season. I managed to get a bet in most weeks, only slowing down towards the ...

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 ...
