Honesty at Nokia

Firstly, my apologies for the radio silence. I am going to try and put a bit more effort into my blog again. I have recently come across this blog post on the WSJ, and was absolutely fascinated by the absolute honesty. With lines like: “The first iPhone shipped in 2007, and we still don’t have a product […]

Take an inspiring and inspired trip around the world from the comfort of your own lounge with this extremely well stitched together and edited film. In their words: 3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious […]

Bernie and his (Very Expensive) Watch

I have to say, that in the context of more and more horror stories of people being attacked in the streets of London, the recent pictures of Bernie Ecclestone were pretty shocking. Does not really matter if you like or don’t like him (or as a fan of the sport, agree or disagree with the […]

What I Do All Day…

So despite of one or two work-ish related posts on this blog, this has of course become much more my personal blog. Frankly when I started writing it, I did not really know what it was going to be, so its nice that is seems to have taken on at least some direction! However, I […]

BBC Video Player Goes to 11

Has one of Spinal Tap’s old roadies gone to work at the BBC? Of course Spinal Tap were famous partly because their Amps all went to 11. Cos its louder, innit. And once everything is at 10, the amps are at 10, the EQs are at 10, the guitar is at 10, where do you […]
