You have to hand it to Putin - he really knows all the triggers to upset Westerners.

Or maybe it's just a sly dig at Obama being handed the Nobel Peace Prize for continuing two wars simultaneously...

Either way, he is a top troll. Respect.

Sepp Blatter deserves recognition for his stewardship of football’s world governing body, said Vladimir Putin

I think he's right. It's been obvious for years that there should be a Nobel for Scumbaggery.

Irony

I have been personally invited to the exclusive Windows 10 launch event in London on Wednesday.

I am hopeful that Steve Ballmer is also invited, ready to do his famous monkey boy dance again.

Google is top of the pops (again) when it comes to buying favours bypassing democracy subverting politics lobbying the US government. They managed to spend $4.62 million dollars in just three months on glad-handing politicians.

Apple Store Sleuthing Pt 3

Following on from +Steve Boothe's admirable entry, here's another dreadful selfie (is there any other kind?). Which Apple 🍎 store is pictured below? 

You'll have to work even harder with this one because there are even less visual clues this time ;)

Guy Ritchie is going all out destroy anything that anyone loved as child isn't he? Sherlock Holmes, The Man from Uncle and now King Arthur.

Can we not pay him to retire instead before he bastardises everything?
 
Guy Ritchie’s Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur stars Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy, Pacific Rim) as Arthur Pendragon. The film is set to be the first of six if all goes well and is based on Thomas Mallory’s Le Morte d’Arthur.

I think the 'action packed' approach was where the Guy Ritchie movies failed completely. Despite being an accomplished pugilist, Holmes was a cerebral character who relied on brains more than brawn (and in the case of the movies, dumb luck) to solve cases.

Sadly Ritchie is only capable of making one kind of movie, so his involvement in any project will drag it down to that same dumb level.

Props on falling asleep in one of those noisy crapfests though +Steve Boothe - that's quite an achievement!

I cannot think of any reason you would want to install a spyware plugin into Office with its reputation for being somewhat insecure. Yet another Google backdoor grab for personal data under the guise of 'free tools'.
 
Introducing the Google Drive plug-in for Microsoft Office (for Windows). This new plug-in lets you open files from Drive, edit them, and save back to Drive without leaving Office.

Fed up of spam in your search results? It could be about to get a whole lot worse.

Undoing all the "good" work of the Penguin and Panda SEO updates, Google is investigating allowing advertisers to flog their wares to you ion search results based on your email address.

Nice.
It's like the zombie nightmare future of spam just came to life

Google goes all 'Davos' for it's secret society shindig.

Expect to see US presidents past and present on the guest list in coming years.
Google bosses will follow in the footsteps of the likes of Zeus and Hercules by celebrating their successes in the 2,500 year-old ruins (pictured), once worshipped by the Greeks, in Sicily, Italy.

You know I'm on Snapchat, right?

Add me for random snaps. Some are even quite amusing.

In which +Stephen Glasskeys draws attention to the fact that 'Your Timeline' gives Android uses a glimpse into just how much Google spies on them. Assuming they stop kidding themselves that Google isn't mining this information to death in order to flog more advertising and add to their comprehensive profile of every human being on earth.

In reality, this release of data should be at least as worrying as the Ashley Madison hack for Android users.
Yikes: Google is rolling out a new Maps feature for Android called Your Timeline -- if for no other reason than to showcase its all-seeing, all-knowing, data gathering omnipotence...

Tech Write UK - Copy written right
Introduction

I am a happily married father to many, and award-winning technology freelance copywriter trading under the name of Tech Write. I have 16 years technical experience behind me having worked in support, development, training and management across both public and private sectors.

My role as a writer for Tech Write sees me writing blogs and articles for some of the largest companies in the world and covering topics as diverse as cloud computing, CRM, personal finance, recruitment and hair loss! I also ghostwrite for some of the UK's most successful digital agencies and their clients. I am a specialist technology/technical copywriter but I can (and often do) write about anything.

I am a moderator for the UK Marketing professionals group - drop in and say hello when you get a chance.

I'm often mistaken for Johnny Depp in public. I'm also a member of the landed gentry. Oh, and I won a @OneMinuteBrief creative advertising award.
