The difference between need and want
Just in case anyone is listening (pun), I absolutely definitely need these headphones. This is not a case of want, it’s definitely need. If the B&W MM-1 speakers are anything to go by, these will rock the house (pub). Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Bowers and Wilkins P5 headphones . Did I mention...

Taking Tech back to 1977
Retro brilliance from ALT/1977: WE ARE NOT TIME TRAVELERS on the Behance Network . Is this what today’s tech would have looked like back in 1977? Probably. Something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately is the tech bubble I/we live in. Packing my house and moving to the US gave me time to reflect on...

Sony’s flexible screen is just the beginning
[image credit: Wired] Screen technology is coming along nicely and I noticed Wired recently showed the flexible Sony Screen above (that’s a pen it’s rolled around). Whilst we all get carried away with the latest gadgetry from Cupertino and Computex I think it’s safe to say that’ll look pretty archaic...

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...

Do I need to know that intelligent signage has Intel inside?
As usual, Long Zheng is ahead of the mainstream press in reporting the latest in future technology. Once you get over the slightly cheesy element of this video it’s fascinating/scary to see that the world of Total Recall (they had this before Minority Report) isn’t that far away. Digital signs that recognise...

Microsoft's Day Of Innovation in Europe
I spent last Thursday at Microsoft’s Growth and Innovation Day in Brussels – our fifth running of this event that has now become part of the Brussels calendar it seems. That’s me up there with the tie that it too short…a fashion disaster I am still getting over. Sat at the Microsoft Surface table is...

The Sony Dilemma
I agree with Gizmodo that this picture explains Sony’s challenge. I was talking with a friend about this only last week as I love Sony products (just was @ewand). They do beautiful design, tend to have premium prices and have a lot of products within a single category – they tend to throw a lot of stuff...

New F1 Rules
I’ve pretty much given up on Formula 1 over the last few years as I find paint drying is a much more entertaining activity…but this video from Red Bull suggests we may actually be in for some overtaking in 2009. Whatever happens, F1 needs more videos like this. H/T to Wired

Google Heading Up The Mountain With Linux Desktop
I followed this title “ The Google Linux desktop has arrived ” from PopURL’s this morning expecting details of a new Google OS and was disappointed to read this opening gambit. Google has been slowly, but surely, displacing Microsoft as the number one PC technology company. Google has done it by misdirection...

I’ve been playing with Firefox a little more than usual of late and came across this interesting little extension called Ambient News from Atul Varma that aims to provide a non intrusive way to give you updates on sites you visit frequently. Each time you open a new tab in FF it gives you a view similar...

Seriously Great TV
I don’t watch much TV these days – my time is more likely spent surfing the web, monitoring Twitter and posting on this blog. I think I prefer two way mediums. However, the last 4 nights have offered some of the best TV I have watched in a long time. I’m referring to The Royal Institution Lectures that...

ViaPost: Right Place, Right Time?
Some friends of mine are involved is this interesting startup business so I have a vested interest in them being successful – though I think they may have hit upon a great solution at the perfect time.

Architecture + Interior Design + Technology
I’m interested in all 3 of these topics for a variety of reasons and one of the things I love about blogging is when someone recognises this type of intersection and sends you something interesting related to it. I get my fair share of PR pitches these days from people asking me to show their stuff on...
