Rubbish Advert Craze

November 12, 2013

Introduction I have been watching adverts recently and becoming more and more outraged and the type of advert that gets produced these days. There seems to be an increasing trend within so many companies of showing something interesting followed by a “Pan up” and “Insert logo here”. These are off the shelf marketing campaigns developing […]

Do your research!

April 12, 2012

I stumbled across this news link provided by FOX News. Since I watch The Simpsons I have been exposed to a lot of FOX bashing, however I never really understood the jokes, except that FOX make The Simpsons and I thought it was an “in” joke. They are always saying not to trust FOX and […]

He is now famous for being able to trade his paperclip for a house! This was no easy feet and he had to go through a series of interesting trades. Here is […]

BETT 2012

January 15, 2012

  Earlier during the exhibit Michael Gove announced that high schools should start to teach programming. Now although I have my own personal thoughts on this matter (it seems that the people in charge are so disconnected from the actual classrooms) I was interested to see what kind of spin this would put on the show.

Amazon MP3 – What went wrong!

January 2, 2012

Ok, this one really bugs me! The Christmas period is over and during this time I wanted a decent Christmas album along with Dominick the Donkey (Thanks the Radio 1).

Siri – Natural Language HCI

November 24, 2011

The biggest change in the way we use computers. For years Microsoft has been trying to re-invent the way we use computers, either through touchscreens using styluses or through voice control, however the biggest snag was that they tried to apply it to their operating system. This is a particularly bad move, trying to control […]

Photography Studio Shop

August 10, 2011

Imagine a shop that will allow you to dress up in various costumes and use props to have your photograph taken in various high quality sets. There is a huge potential for a unique store that is easily expandable and franchised. For an initial set up of £50,000 it could have an annual turnover of […]
