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 […]

Trip Around the World from your Sofa

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 […]

Please, don’t let this be the future

Seriously, words fail me in trying to describe this. Instead, I will simply reproduce a small sample of the comment this has generated on youtube (where, by the way, the video has notched up an impressive 1,617 dislikes, compared with 248 likes – presumably most of who work for the agency that created it.) “this […]

Transport For the Last Mile

You would think that all you need do this is is a bike (like these people). But apparently not. So you could always tow your car around behind you. Well actually there is a much classier way of solving this problem. Or if you don’t want to drive a small two seater sports car for […]

Even I Would go Camping with These

Check out the below from the recent Egypt unrest, and definitely go their site and look at the rest. Its impressive stuff, and documents what has been happening in Egypt brilliantly.

Is This Taking Your Relationship With a Doll Too Far?

To answer my own question, I can’t help but think that the answer is probably yes. Dave Hockey has a girlfriend who is a doll. He’s taken her everywhere, even on holiday, skydiving etc. Not sure what his wife thinks about this strange behaviour… And this is his doll Cynthia, who got to go Skydiving […]

Fred Flintstone’s Smoking Habit

In this day and age where everything that even hints at being a cigarette or cigarette ad is being banned and banished, its very easy to forget the old days when cigarette smoking was not just advertised, but advertised as being healthy, fun and a generally positive pasttime. Check out these old press ads for […]

World’s Most Expensive Stuff

I’ve recently come across a little website which nicely summarises the most expensive stuff in the world. I’d quite like to get to a point where I could do my shopping on a website that always guaranteed I was paying the maximum possible price. These items in particular interested me: The world’s most expensive watch […]

The Wisdom of Beards

Much to the dismay of my partner, parents, numerous friends and even some random people I have met, I have recently grown a beard. This beard has even been the subject of a royal decree (this is no joke) when HRH Prince Philip suggested in casual conversation that I should “Cut it off and use […]
