Passwords as tattoo’s / swallowable passwords

I’ve written before about the need for password strength, and also about my love of 1Password – an app for remembering and creating strong passwords - but this, well this is something new altogether … Regina Dugan is the former head of DARPA – the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency – and now works over at (Google […]

Adding Custom Google Analytics Dashboards

I use Google Analytics for the majority of websites that I work on. It can though be a hugely daunting prospect – the amount of information available is huge, and getting to grips with what of it is useful, and what can safely be ignored, can be challenging. So, I tend to do 3 things […]

Around the web – May 2013

Oops … I’m a bit late with the monthly round up this month. It’s been a month of travelling, prosthetic limbs (not mine!), and family funerals (again, not mine). So bear with me … but some good stuff found around and about: Single purpose, digital Camera for kids A couple of years ago, we bought […]

How’s it going?

I’ve fallen into a really poor habit. For the past however long, when anyone has asked me how I’m doing, or how it’s going, I’ve usually replied ‘Oh, you know, busy – really busy’ … the standard response to that is often ‘oh, that’s great – great in this economy’.  Which usually leaves me grumbling […]

Google Wallet – send money via email

Oh, this looks interesting. Google Wallet (formerly Google Checkout) is introducing email payments to some of it’s Gmail users (presumably in advance of a broader roll out).

Thought for the day

Revisiting the Facebook IPO

A year ago now I wrote a post about the Facebook IPO – and that I didn’t understand it.  In that year, the price for a single share of Facebook is still $5 lower than it was on launch. It seems that some of the things I wrote about (lack of mobile monetization strategy, an […]

Note Slate … e-ink doodling coming to life with Sony instead?

I first found the Note Slate website a few years ago, originally linked to on Kottke.org and thought it was wonderful. Being able to scribble (doodle, write, sketch, take notes) on a device and have that device be able to save or share the document, seemed like a brilliant combination of old and new – […]

Marissa Mayer – kicking ass since July 2012

Marissa Mayer. She’s the CEO of Yahoo! Hired last July she was charged with the responsibility of making Yahoo! a relevant organisation again. Not an easy task. Since she joined she’s made a number of seemingly controversial calls – but all of them seem to have been the right thing, despite many (many) people dumping […]

Attractive USB Cables

It’s not often you see the words ‘attractive’ and ‘cables’ in the same sentence … but, and my wife is going to be pleased with this, there is an alternative to the ugly cable mess of most home office set ups: an attractive mess of cables. These great looking cables from Eastern Collective remind me […]
