  • Blog Post: Visualising the Apple App Store

    The amount of data we are subjected to every day is phenomenal. I’ve blogged about it before but have spent more time thinking about it following a recent conversation with Gary Flake . He pointed out to me the now fairly obvious fact that every time we do something, anything on the web or with technology...
  • Blog Post: Trouble in the valley

    I really just wanted to share this great image from the NY Times today though the story it supports is pretty compelling too. The PR statements are priceless and a battle built on emotion as the NYT suggests this one is means not all decisions will be rational. Should be intriguing to watch. One piece...
  • Blog Post: Techmeme…the day after

    I decided to run Techmeme.com through Wordle on the day after Steve Jobs announced what is apparently “ the most important thing I've ever done ”. I’d bet he didn’t actually say that but if he did, he’d be happy with the fact that iPad is dominating the blogosphere if we use Techmeme as our barometer...
  • Blog Post: Cheat sheet: Google, Microsoft, Apple and Yahoo

      Nick Bilton/The New York Times A great chart from Nick Bilton in the NY Times today that shows which businesses Google, Microsoft, Apple and Yahoo are in. What surprised me most is that only one row is unticked for Microsoft. We’re in a lot of business, some we do well in, others we have plenty...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft does humour?

    Is it just me who thinks The Independent has missed the point when Steve Ballmer holds up an HP slate and shows an apple on it? I mean seriously, is there any room for humour or is that only allowed in Steve Jobs’ keynotes? Thankfully Fortune has a sense of humour…
  • Blog Post: Google is an Internet company…

    A pretty thought provoking post from Marc yesterday on Google, the Nexus One launch and the future of Google itself. There is a lot of hyperbole around Google, Apple, Android – some of it merited, some of it not but hey, it sells papers….or blogs. The iPhone and Nexus One are both fine looking devices...
  • Blog Post: Geek Spotting #2

      How to spot a geek #2 - they talk about Redmond & Cupertino rather than Microsoft and Apple
  • Blog Post: Jonathan Ive on Apple design

    Jony talks design. His passion for the product shines through and I love his philosophy of getting design out of the way. funny to see him take his iPhone out of his pocket and wipe the screen with his t-shirt. Design flaw? :)
  • Blog Post: Stainless Steel Shuffle

    For me, the Stainless Steel Shuffle is by far the coolest thing that Apple announced during their event this week. Nano’s with cameras? I’m not feeling it….but a Jonathan Ive classic design, that’s more like it. Still, I wont be buying one as I just pre-ordered my Zune HD with guaranteed delivery on...
  • Blog Post: Convert your iPhone

    Another of those simple, elegant and downright useful apps for iPhone – Convert. I’m busy doing a lot of household chores right now with trips to IKEA meaning I have become quite familiar with their meatballs of late. This is the perfect app for all those pesky conversions. Likewise I was just checking...
  • Blog Post: Black Mac

    Maybe this is what my Mac Classic is destined for? http://www.thomaswilliams.com.au
  • Blog Post: Here’s Jony

      What can I say…he works for the enemy but he’s a legend. Bummed I didn’t get to see him talk and I suspect he’s not likely to be a visitor on the Microsoft Campus speaker circuit. Damn. Oh well….Rory gives us a bit of an insight in to one of the worlds finest designers. Mr Jonathan Ive
  • Blog Post: Sheila: Microsoft’s Latest Laptop Hunter

    Video: Laptop Hunters $2000 – Sheila gets an HP HDX   I’ve been checking regularly to see when the next instalment of Laptop Hunters would arrive and here it is – Sheila. She’s A PC, an artist and values a machine with over 2GB and a honkin’ graphics card. In short. Sheila is fierce :) For the record...
  • Blog Post: Steve Jobs Cover Story

    Given a 5 second choice, who would you work for if you walked in to the room back in 1987 and these two guys approached you?   Personally I’d be wondering what that bow tie was all about with a double breasted suit but then dude on the right looks like he’s unsure what that thing he’s holding actually...
  • Blog Post: The Apple Tax

    The Apple Tax document has generated a tonne of posts this weekend from luminaries such as Mary Jo , Ina Fried , Harry McCracken , and Joe Wilcox . Most have pointed to the poor math in the report with The Register accusing Microsoft of cheating. Chill out people…those I’m A Mac ads have been full of...
  • Blog Post: I Visited the Microsoft Store

      [bag from our new on campus company store] So we’re opening some retail stores . At last. Maybe I should dig out the memo I wrote on this 5+ years ago :) It’s not without it’s challenges and Apple has set the bar extremely high and they’re the only company we’ll be compared against so we have...
  • Blog Post: iPhone Wallpapers

    I enjoy using the 1st gen iPod Touch I won for my blog last year (thanks CW ) and now have a whole slew of groovy wallpapers for it. Not that you have an iPhone but hey, in case you do….check out Smashing Magazine’s wonderful gallery of 100 wallpapers. my two favourites are above.

  • Blog Post: Amazing Miniaturisation: Mactini

    Needs no explanation. :)
  • Blog Post: Microsoft's first iPhone app: Seadragon Mobile

    [image credit – TechFlash] Todd Bishop at Techflash just noticed that Microsoft’s Live Labs has published our first iPhone app - Seadragon Mobile . It’s terrific to see this innovation coming out but I have to ask myself where is the Windows Mobile version? Surely phones like the Touch HD from HTC would...
  • Blog Post: The Simpsons - Steve Mobs

    Well I thought the first one was funny but this is classic - some lovely details such as the subtle reference to the Apple 1984 video hat tip to Ewan
  • Blog Post: mApple Genius: The Simpsons

    Get it whilst it’s good…seems it’s being pulled from YouTube and Hulu at the moment. You know you’ve reached Zen cool status when The Simpson’s parodies you.
  • Blog Post: 10 Reasons The Zune Beats The iPod. Seriously.

    Okay, we know that the Zune doesn’t beat the iPod where it matters (sales) so this is sort of like BetaMax/VHS but the Zune really is an increasingly impressive device. I’m beginning to wonder if it’ll become the cult device that is sort of cooler than the iPod but not as popular. Sound familiar? I had...
  • Blog Post: Bill, thank you. The world’s a better place

      I was spending some of my coffee break flipping through the LIFE photo archive on Google when I came across this one. It made me ask myself…did we fund the iPod? Now there’s a story….. For those who don’t have the back story, check out this historic video How times change
  • Blog Post: The Notebook World

    Like most of the rest of the web I watched the Apple Macbook announcements this evening albeit after a fine pint of Guinness in London village. After all is said and done (which will take a while in the blogosphere bubble I live in) the graph above tells a story in itself. I found it over at ZDNet in...
