App Review – Zinio

June 30, 2011

  Zinio is a magazine app with a huge difference. Unlike regular magazine apps that just show the pages within the mag Zinio has captured all of the text to all you to read articles in a “kindle” style interface. You do not miss the experience of flicking through the pages, looking for articles that […]

Should devices be made for fingers

June 15, 2011

I have been thinking about recent developments regarding the touch screen industry. This might be mobile phones, tablets or even kiosks in shopping centers. I am wondering if the brains in the interface departments around the world have really thought out the different themes involved when creating interfaces. There appears to be two distinct and […]

Universal App Store

March 29, 2011

Since the launch of the Amazon App Store in the USA and it’s ultimate release here in the UK I have been thinking about how technically possible it would be to create a Universal App Store. The idea behind this being that if I purchase an App on an Andriod phone, I would like to […]

App Review – Angry Birds

March 14, 2011

This game really caught my attention as being a very interesting + addictive game. The game cost about £100,000 to make – however I am certain that was the easiest investment decision anyone could have made given that it has been downloaded over 50million times. The game play is seriously addictive. My only problem with […]

A new way to get funding!

December 1, 2010

For people who think they may have a good idea often the only drawback is the funding that is needed to turn it into a reality. However this is about to change due to a couple of websites that have popped up recently. These websites are called kickstarter.com and indiegogo.com. These are like Dragons Den […]

Map of the Internet

October 16, 2010

I have recently come across this rather interesting map of the internet which summarises the growth of several domains that focus on social and communication. The map shows how they are perceived within the on-line world. It is interesting to see facebook taking over the vast majority of the map which is very contrasting to the map of 3 […]

The Google Masterplan

June 29, 2010

It seems that Google has taken on quite a few projects recently. Many of these projects seem obscure and abstract from the main Google business model of advertising. However it seems to be quite a clever strategy in the Google Camp, a strategy that they seem to be playing close to their chest. However, I think that […]

Global Warming: Whats the big deal?

May 14, 2010

I was reading an article recently about how global warming will cause more volcano’s in the future because of certain effects on the density of the sea “squeezing” the magma to the surface. This is explained using the example of Mount Pavlof in Alaska, which is under these conditions and its eruptions seem to be biased towards […]

Spreadsheets for Beginners

March 20, 2010

I have been playing about with papercraft for a while now, and I have finally managed to put together a resource that can be used in a classroom. I taught this lesson to students in year 7, and the intention is to let any student that is away observe the video next lesson so that […]
