Windows 10 the new operating system from Microsoft is being released at the end of next month – 29th July To remind you of this if you are running Windows 7 or 8.1 you will find a windows icon in your tool box (bottom right of your screen) offering the Free upgrade to Windows 10 when it becomes available. So as a small business do I take the plunge head first into a new operating system? Or should I bide my time and await feedback from the wider public on release?

About 2 months ago I was asked to be a featured supplier on their website to promote their services in a more personal way, this company is a company I have used since 2002 for all my domain needs. little did I know there would be in a few months time a picture of me on one of their high traffic pages where they provide email services, so is this going to help my business? Well the feature was live on the 5th March and judging by my analytics this tripled my visitor rate for that month, though in our nature of business this is difficult to quantify. As a rule […]
NFC is a technology being spoken about a lot at the moment , but is it likely to be implemented into smartphones any time soon? Speculations of the potential of NFC have been whispered to consumers, and large corporations, like Sony and Blackberry, seem to be moving in to intergrate it into their hardware. So what is NFC? It’s a method of data transfer which is entirely contactless. Although similar tech has been used for some time now, like TFL’s Oyster cards, Near Field Communication has the capabilities for “sharing, pairing, and transaction”. (unlike the RFID chips of Oyster cards which are one-way only). There are some exciting and innovative things planned for […]
Back in March Firefox upgraded its developer tools to be more in-line with other browsers favoured by developers and designers out there. But they added something quite amazing in addition which renders the site you are looking at in 3 dimensions, this is pretty cool and you can really see a new perspective to the web and maybe new possibilities in how we may all be creating websites in the future.

Enjoy and have a look at your own 3d website through […]

We all should know of the FREE* offerings from Google such as Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Docs, now think of them all integrated together and under your domain name and all for… FREE*!… Pretty cool eh! Now the FREE* version only allows you to have 10 email accounts (which is ample for a small business or organisation) and the email inbox size is limited to around 2gb which for most […]
Last night I came across a link to iBuildApp.com from an old friend and I decided to give it a go just to see if I create an app for my company or even for the local Sea Cadets. http://ibuildapp.com At first look the site looked like any other site which offers the world and free stuff so I was a bit wary, though after a few minute I decided to create an account and login to give it a try. All looked good and it even gave you the option to login with your facebook ID, though watch this as you may end up posting a link to iBuildApp […]
