Watch Steve Jobs The Lost Interview on Netflix. Its from an interview he took part in, in 1995. His vision of the internet (or web as he's called it) turned out to be amazingly accurate.

No wonder everyone hates HMRC.
A tax quirk means a student has been hit with a £1,300 penalty which he cannot appeal (and he probably owed no tax anyway)

I could have told them this. Email is my prefered method of communication for deeper discussions with brands.
Surprisingly, Millennials have a preference in how they want to converse with brands, and it’s not through social media. Columnist Steve Dille explains.

Just remember that a large proportion of the people you'll need to communicate with every day won't be Millennials and so using he good old fashioned telephone or other mediums will be more appropriate.

Changing your email feels like a trial of Hercules, but it's worth it to join Gmail. Here are four advantages. Hey you - yes you! Are you that person who’s been on the same phone contract for 15 years? Always use the same locker at the gym and the same parking space at Sainsbury’s?   It’s time to make a change and move to Gmail! It’s free for individuals - and Gmail for Business is only £30 per user per year.  We know change is n...

Really useful advice about orphaned files in Google Drive.
 
Removing Shared Google Folders Can be Bad!

Removing a shared file is pretty straight forward - I remove it from My Drive but it should remain on the owner's drive. However, if someone share's a folder with your and you delete the file, it will go missing from EVERYONE's drive.

Have you run into this and how do you handle it?

Orphaned Documents - tutorialFinding Orphaned Documents After a long discussion with Google Support, I realized that many of us (myself included) were under the impression that although a shared document could only be deleted by the owner, it is possible for that document to be removed from a folder and placed in limbo.

The Japanese don't mess about when making miniature models. Really good few hours, worth going.

It's very 1950's. Staff are nice and its an enjoyable experience. But, WiFi is limited to the lounge which is not really acceptable for a hotel these days.

Very nice food. The portions are smaller than other restaurants in the area but they turn out to be just the right amount. We were left very satisfied with the food.The only thing that made the experience less enjoyable was the restaurant manager asking if we'd like to add service to our bill before handing over the card payment machine for the pin to be entered. This is not a question that should ever be asked as it puts pressure on the client to make the payment. They should drop this practice.

Contacted Pete at PW Electrical based on the past reviews. Something must have changed at the company as it is no longer 5 start at all. Pete arranged to meet me onsite at a rental property so that he could have a look around and quote for the work. He promised to call the day before to make sure everything was OK and still going ahead. By the afternoon I'd not heard from Pete. Gave him a call and left a voicemail asking to call back if he could not meet. Otherwise I'd see him at the agreed time the following day. I arrived at the property. I waited for 25 minutes after the agreed time and Pete had not shown up. I called his mobile and was put through to answer machine. Left a message that I would be leaving in 5 minutes and to call me if he was on his way or could not make it. Never got a call back. It would seem Pete is unreliable and unprofessional and happy to waste other people's time. I'd advise avoiding P W Electrical.

Not great. We stayed in a couple of traditional Japanese style hotels. This one was the biggest let down. It is right in the middle of the tourist area (so if priced higher). The staff don't really speak English but are friendly enough. However the food really was a let down - really tasteless - sadly the server also had really bad breath which didn't help in building an appetite for the food.

Really poor customer service. We purchased a new Oven from CDA - it was faulty upon arrival. CDA initially refused to replace it and insisted on sending an engineer out. Fully knowing what the model oven we had the engineer did not come with the correct parts and tried to botch a fix. As the engineer was signing of the job the problem (a noisy fan) returned. The engineer then filed a report saying he would return to fix the job when he had the required parts and that CDA would be incontact. No one from CDA made contact. In the end my Kitchen fitter had to chase the company up - who were still unwilling to replace a faulty oven instead insisting on sending another engineer out with a replacement fan. Considering this is a brand new oven we found this unacceptable and demanded a replacement. CDA refused. Luckily my kitchen fitter had a big order with CDA and cancelled the rest of the order. In under an hour the regional sales manager has contact my kitchen fitter to find out why the order had been cancelled. Once the problem was explained he arranged for a new oven to be delivered the next week and the old oven to be removed. If we had not had such a big order - we'd still be dealing with CDA's terrible customer service.
