What are people saying about… the iPad, iPhone and iPod?

Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the past week, you’ll know all about the iPad, Apple’s new wunderkit – what it has, what it has not, what it’s for, what it’s not for, and so on. Fortunately, the term ‘iPad’ is very quick and easy to search for. So, it’s a doddle to […]

So, there I was, tweeting the Iraq inquiry, when all of a sudden…

… I was unable to continue tweeting. I can only assume I’d sent too many tweets out. This was incredibly frustrating for me. I really wanted to offer another channel by which people could get updates if they didn’t have access to the broadcasts. Oh well. The web is the ultimate democracy, but it’s bounded […]

Proof reading can be fun!

Proof reading is supposed to be a doddle. It’s just making sure everything’s tickety-boo and stamping it with your big red ‘Approved’ stamp. No? Actually, no. Not really. Not when you’re proofing a 26,000 word document, like I just did today. It’s been a while since I did hard-core proofing and it reminded me that […]

What are people saying about… Imagination Technologies?

I’ve been tinkering with Yahoo Pipes quite a lot recently, and plugging it into Netvibes. The Pipes interface can be flaky but once you get it set up you can reuse Pipes simply by passing parameters to them without ever having to edit them again. And Netvibes is just gorgeous.

Marketing models: colander, funnel or pipe? I keep forgetting exactly what the marketing funnel is about. So imagine my surprise when I find it could also be a pipe or a colander. And it's banana-shaped. (tags: marketing funnel marketingfunnel)

Can the cloud protect us?

I just received an email from a friend of mine who’s lost all his iPhone data. That’s over 2,000 contacts he’s built up over the past few years in PR. To say it’s a disaster is an understatement. But I guess it’s a lesson to us all: data has no value unless it’s backed up. […]
