    I remember when a 256MB USB Key was actually relatively pricey. And I’m fairly certain that was only about 6 years ago.

    #WP7 App Round-Up

    • 0 Comments
    I had to hand back my lovely Orange HTC Mozart the other week and I’m now using a Samsung Focus from AT&T. The Mozart was a great device and I miss it. The Focus struck me initially as not very compelling, but it’s performed really well, with a good...

    Weeknote 3: In which a tipping point is reached...

    • 0 Comments
    The tipping point being that after another journey back from the UK I realised that a) I have very little UK time left between now and ‘full migration’ and b) more of ‘my stuff’ is now in the US which means I have to plan for the trip to the UK rather...

    • 0 Comments
    Weeknote 2 means the end of my first stint in the US and I’m flying home for a few days to squeeze some hugs from the family and recharge. What’s been happening: The aforementioned email lull has well and truly worn off as connections have been made,...

    Lost in the Future

    • 0 Comments
    Just had to grab the Technology page from BBC News today. (I’ve linked it, but hey it will have changed by now). Sometimes, we think that the future is just around the corner, and it’s never quite arriving. But then I was taken with this particular cross...

    Today has been one of those “wild speculation” days – various subjects. It always seems to be the ill-informed who write the most on a subject. Maybe it’s something to do with the lack of clarity to drive brevity. Anyway, I wondered if there was scope...

    So I finally got to watch the Superbowl at a reasonable hour and with the intended adverts. And, sadly, THAT half-time show. I forget who won now (was it the Bears?). Just kidding sports fans, I very much like American Football but it’s not been easy...

    Levelling Up

    Funny how a number of unrelated events can end up pointing to the same thing: in this case game mechanics. Firstly, @markjo pinged me a link to the above “Gamification” presentation which reminded me of the recent Game-based Marketing book (the deck itself...

    Weeknote 1 - in which I find a table to put my feet under

    • 0 Comments
    It’s Weeknote 1 which means I’m now officially an American. Well, not really, but I’m here with a working visa doing a job – there must be a category for that. What’s happened: Start of the week, as you might expect, spent mainly signing forms and queuing...

    Running out of words

    • 0 Comments
    This occurred to me back at Christmas but was marked under ‘something to think about’. Actually, I say “occurred to me” but really I mean “hit me like a damp rag” when I saw and advert on TV that was essentially suggesting that the DVD of the film ‘Sex...

    I bumped into my sparring partner Stevecla in SF last night. Mainly we chatted about the ‘Torres to Chelsea’ drama of yesterday (summed up best by “old skool” Kenny Dalglish: “ Movement is part and parcel of football but the most important people at Liverpool...

    #F1 Race Track Wall Sculptures

    • 0 Comments
    I’m not a massive fan of F1 these days – though I know a lot of people who are. But regardless, I love these track sculptures for what they are, but also because of the memories they evoke of playing Pole Position and Pitstop II when I was a kid. (via...
