    Spotted elsewhere, but Stevecla is where I first saw this great demonstration of a game running across a Win7 PC, A Windows Phone 7 Series device and an XBox. It’ll never catch on :) Talking of phones (which we sort of were), worth a look at Charlie’s...

    Talking of travel and discovery: ever felt a bit stupid when you’ve held up your iPhone in front of your face whilst wandering down the street to take advantage of some augmented reality application or other? I have. (Actually, I’ve felt more like a target...

    Paris, Texas

    Probably the mother of all SatNav errors given that I’m actually heading to Paris, France today. It’s the first time I’ve used St. Pancras for Eurostar and never have I seen so many people drag so much luggage up stairs with no escalators. Still, I’m...

    True Colours of Earth

    • 0 Comments
    There’s an old Steven Wright gag which goes: “Some friends of mine went on holiday. They sent me a postcard with a picture of the Earth on it, and above it in large letters ‘Wish You Were Here’. And I was”. From this high, it sure is pretty – and this...
