Real Life Wall-E – Coolest Thing Ever

This is now right at the top of my ‘I want one’ list. Well, it’s joint first with a beagle puppy and a tiger cub. This video was featured as part of Youtube’s geek week and showcases an actual Wall-E…

Getting Married is Making my Brain Ache

Getting Married is Making my Brain Ache

I’m engaged. That’s not brand new information. I’ve been that way for 6 or 7 months now, but I’ve only just realised how much I am going to have to do before I buy all my friends and family dinner…

Katie Hopkins – You Horrible Human Being

I never catch This Morning. I’m at work when it’s on and, unless Kerry Katona is slurring her way through an interview, it’s not often controversial enough to lead to Youtube clips making their way onto my Facebook or Twitter streams. But…

things I learnt from Man of Steel

Things I Learnt from ‘Man of Steel’

So, last night I accompanied my other half to the Odeon to watch Man of Steel. Superman isn’t my thing at all. And neither is going to the cinema to see stuff I know I won’t like. But Despicable Me 2 is coming…

The Ballsiest PM in History Dies – RIP Margaret Thatcher

She might not be popular. Well, where I’m from she’s definitely not popular. Nor is she popular in the North East or in Wales where she crippled the economy with the closure of the mines. But whether or not you…

SMX London – Discount Code and General Excitement!

SMX London is just around the corner! It will take place on May 15th and 16th at the same London venue as last year – Stamford Bridge Football Club. This was my favourite conference of last year. As an attendee,…

stop making excuses

SEOs – Stop Making Excuses

In SEO, when things go wrong, we have the job of diagnosing why. And even if whatever went wrong was genuinely out of your control, your response to it is NOT. We’re all guilty of making excuses when things don’t…

My Nan the Internet Ninja (Well, Almost)

I’d like to say that this is the story of one woman’s epic journey (in relatively old age) from net novice to net ninja. But it’s not quite that dramatic. It’s more like one woman’s long and tedious journey from…

meteor shower Chelyabinsk

Meteorite Replacement Windows, Anyone?

I was absolutely astounded to see the images this morning of the chaos caused by a meteor shower in Chelyabinsk, Russia. For anyone who has miraculously managed to miss that, here’s some video coverage. Reports so far indicate that 700 people…

berlin brandenburg gate night time

4 Days in Berlin (and my Chronic Addiction to the Internet)

I’ve just returned from 4 days away in Berlin sightseeing and enjoying some decent beer with my other half. He’s 31 today (which makes him an old fart a sophisticated, maturing fellow). For his birthday, I thought I should get…

Is this the WORST Website in the World?

I’m a Manchester United fan. But I am certainly not a fan of my beloved club’s absolutely awful website. Now, I’ve mentioned already how appalling this site is for mobile users, but last night I was trying to use the site…

LG viral elevator video

The Greatest Product Demo Ever?

As far as product demos go, this one might be the funniest I’ve ever seen! LG believe their IPS monitors boast such sharp colours and just general epic brilliantness that whatever’s on the screen actually look real! Cue one of the best…

5 Brilliantly Bad Sat Nav Mishaps…

We no longer need to really ever know where we’re going! Welcome to the satellite age, where sat nav systems and even smartphone apps can accurately guide drivers (and even cyclists and pedestrians) from one location to another with turn…

Matthew Woods is an Idiot, Not a Criminal

Matthew Woods is an Idiot, Not a Criminal

Unless you’ve been in a coma for the last week, you couldn’t possibly have missed the news of the abduction of April Jones, the 5 year old taken while playing outside. You’ve also probably seen the news about the arrest…

UK Mail Fail - A Rant

UK Mail Fail – A Rant

I’m sulking. And not because of the usual things I sulk for (I sulk a lot) like the weather or slow internet, but because of an epic UK Mail fail. For those of you who managed to miss it, I…
