Sketchman for iPhone app review

App Obsession of the Week: Sketchman

You know the sort… Canabalt, Temple Run and Subway Surf would be recent examples. I’m also a sucker for rough, sketch like graphics (Doodle Jump!).

Let’s Make Dressage More Worthy of Being an Olympic Sport…

“Strictly Come Trotting!” That’s what they should call dressage. And the idea of it being an Olympic sport is utterly ridiculous. I can appreciate that controlling a horse isn’t easy. And I didn’t get into dressage as a child myself…

Dog Effects for iOS – Brilliantly Pointless

I’m having a lot of fun with Dog Effects for iOS. It’s a free iPhone (and iPad) app that lets you add dogs to any photo. Yes, it’s that simple. Take a photo. Add a dog. F***ing brilliant. Everybody else in the…

3D Printing – is my Childhood Penny Crayon Dream a Reality?

When I was a child, my hero was Penny Crayon. She was a cartoon character who could draw anything and it would become a reality. It would just materialise right there in front of her. Anytime I was asked to…

Google Plus Your Business

5 of the Best Business Pages on Google Plus

Google Plus, despite boasting some impressive membership figures, certainly doesn’t have the pull that the likes of Facebook has. While businesses and brands have been quick to get pages, there are plenty of examples of them just sitting dormant with…

Stuff that Only SEOs Find Funny…

Although the SEO community feels huge sometimes, we’re actually just a small corner of the world. And never is that more apparent than when something funny comes up in SEO-Land and I try to share it with my non-SEO friends. It turns…

'Made to Stick' by Chip and Dan Heath

Made to Stick – A Must Read!

I’ve recently read ‘Made to Stick,’ by Chip and Dan Heath and in terms of non-fiction, it’s the best book I’ve read in a very long time. In fact, I can’t believe it’s taken me until 2012 to actually do…

Manchester is Amazing (Except for the Weather)

Manchester is Amazing (Except for the Weather)

I am a prolific complainer. I whinge about loads of stuff, but in particular the weather. It’s true, the weather in Manchester is bloody awful. Autumn is cold, grey and rainy. Winter is colder, greyer and rainier. Spring is cold,…

iPhone 5 – I Don’t Want a MASSIVE Screen!

I read an article on Business Insider earlier on. It was a piece by Henry Blodget who (aside from having an awesome name) is a genuinely insightful writer. But I was really disappointed to find what I consider to be…
