I Sort of Changed my Mind About the iPad

I might have said, upon the launch of the iPad 2, that I definitely didn’t want. Like, ever. Under any circumstances. Well, ahem… I might be indulging in a little humble pie this afternoon as I sort of, maybe… well……

Cruelty Against Apostrophes

Every year, millions of innocent apostrophes are cruelly abused. Forced silently into words in which they do not belong, they are often abandoned and left to face the rest of their existence as misfits, mocked and laughed at by those…

I Like PAPER Newspapers…. and Other Reasons I Wouldn’t Buy an iPad

The original iPad was, without doubt, pretty cool. But I didn’t buy one myself. I played on one and browsed the web on one then handed it back to its owner and thought no more of it. Needless to say,…

Twitter Twopcharts

Awesome Twitter Tools

I’m a bit of a Tweet geek. Not only do I hash tag sentences all over the place (not only in Twitter) and let my iPhone Twitter app send me push notifications if someone mentions me, but I use a…

#100factsaboutme

#100factsaboutme is (at 9:30pm UK time on 20th March 2011) a global trending topic on Twitter. This confuses me because Twitter is limited to 140 characters. But, I feel like I am missing out, so am going to embark upon…

What Dexter Teaches Us About Blogging

My name is Stacey and I’m addicted to Dexter. There. I said it. Granted, there is probably something wrong in the fact that I am marginally infatuated with a fictional serial killer (albeit one who only kills the bad guys)…

The Secret to Getting Twitter Followers is Golf and Adultery!!

Ever wanted to acquire 30,000 followers in an hour? Well, we have the answer. Nope, I’m trying to sell you some spam infested service whereby I line up my army of faceless bots (all incidentally ‘Tweeting’ automated messages from the…

What Your Facebook Friends Think Matters…. To Bing!

Personally, I am quite selective with Facebook. With Twitter, I am happy to follow, be followed by and converse with people I have never met with whom I share some common interests. I think that particular platform lends itself well…

You’re Coming on a Little Strong….

If a guy or girl came up to you in the street (assuming you were single, looking and attracted to said guy or girl) and randomly said “Hey…Let me take you for dinner. Can I get your number?” what would…

I Heart Formulists

I’m becoming a bit of a list fiend on Twitter – largely because I follow a good 600 people now (and that number is growing)! But I actually like to read people’s Tweets too… and when you exceed 100 people,…

The 10 Commandments of Twitter

I think it’s high time we got some realistic rules laid out, don’t you? 1. Thou Shalt not spam thy followers repeatedly, with the same Tweet over and over again. It serves no purpose other than to truly p**s people…

If Facebook Had Been Around in the Dinosaur Era….

A friend of mine shared this image earlier on (sorry, I don’t know where he got it from) and it made me laugh out loud. Granted, this could be because I have a bizarre sense of humour, but still… some…

The Social Network (Facebook ‘the movie’)

I went to the cinema last night to see Scott Pilgrim. On that note, by the way, it’s bizarre  but pretty cool! Anyway, I’m sad… I like trailers. I in fact get there earliy enough to see them. Last night…

Facebook Going all ‘Foursquare?’

So, Facebook are going all Foursquare, it seems. I posted about Fourquare a while back – having concluded that it makes life a little too easy for stalkers. See, I don’t mind stalkers, just as long as they do some…
