Interesting article and lots to take away - not least the ability to motivate an organisation into change. 

I also agree with the very first point made - Android today (5.1) is a better looking and more intuitive OS that Apple iOS. From the animations when you tap the screen through to the logical layout. I honestly think that Google creates better User Experiences now.

Google's transformation into a company that creates beautiful software is the story of how tech itself has evolved in the mobile era.

Yes, I am aware that the last few months on this blog have been a series of guest posts – breaking just about every rule of blog writing (1 promotional to every 5 useful, etcetera, etcetera). However, I like to think that if I write an article it will be useful to someone...

"It saddens me how social has been co-opted by marketing to become just another mass advertising/marketing channel" - Scott Monty

Unfortunately that's pretty much the same road that been trodden by every other communication channel - from print, to radio, to TV, and on to the internet. We shouldn't be surprised. The only question was when.

An interesting piece on the quality and distribution of 'news'. The result - we like to read low quality news-bait articles instead of studied pieces on serious subjects. Am I surprised? No. Disappointed? Yes.
Mike Hudak is director of product at Facebook. He's also angry about what people read online. But what they read online is largely what Facebook wants them to read.

Dangerous ground - a horribly grey area, but one that could lead to unfortunate precedents being set.

Not often that I share music - it's such a personal thing. But, breaking my own rules, I felt I had to post this. Such a beautiful song. #music

Absolutely agree, but won't be as we see it now - the Apple Watch will be a footnote only - wearables will be retitled invisibles. :-)

To provide a little balance from the two existing reviews, AutoTech did a very good job when my car was booked in following an accident. It was completed on time, they communicated pretty well, were very polite, and the car was valeted before return. I had worried a little reading the reviews, but there was no reason for it. I had absolutely no complaints.

Bill's is a great place to eat. Really good food and a busy atmosphere make for a really good experience. Can get busy, so book or turn up early. Serves breakfast until 1pm on Saturdays and Sundays, the vegetarian option is excellent and not at all what you would expect from a cooked breakfast.
