I have two running battles with my music-loving teenage daughter. The first is her ability to destroy headphones. She has chewed through a half-dozen sets of ear buds and headphones in the past year alone. The primary point of failure in all cases has been the cable connecting the headphones to her iPhone. The second issue -- and one that I'm sure all parents have some concerns about -- is volume. She plays that music loud and I have concerns abo...

Adding Google Analytics to Cordova/Phone Gap Hybrid Apps
I've incorporated Google Analytics usage reporting into a hybrid app I'm currently working on and thought I'd share my experience, in the hope that you can get up and running more quickly than I did. After a quick google search I found a plugin that seemed ...

Looks like it's time to learn a whole new way of building software services (with thanks to Dave Hewitt for putting me on the Reactive/Akka trail).

The next generation of beacons is coming just in time for a new year which will see iBeacon move from pilot to operational deployment.

Interesting prototyping tool for mobile apps, apparently allows UI/UX specialists and interaction designers to easily produce rich prototypes. Provided free of charge and open sourced by Facebook.

The release of Cordova 3.0 brought with it a much lighter core due to the absence of basic API features such as access to the device camera, file system, and the InAppBrowser. Now of course these features didn’t disappear into thin air, rather they are now separately installable as plugins. Along with the benefit of …

Robin brings Beacons to your Batcave
I've recently been working on a proof of concept solution using beacons, the idea being that a user can view availability for nearby rooms and be presented with assets relevant to whichever meeting they happen to be attending. My choice of Cordova for the f...

This holiday season, look up and see the International Space Station pass over you. As the third brightest object in the sky the space station is easy to see if you know when to look up.

NASA’s Spot The Station service gives you a list of upcoming sighting opportunities for thousands of locations worldwide, and will let you sign up to receive notices of opportunities in your email inbox or cell phone. The space station looks like a fast-moving plane in the sky, but it is dozens of times higher than any airplane and traveling thousands of miles an hour faster. It is bright enough that it can even be seen from the middle of a city!

Introduction
I'm currently living in Coventry, UK with my Wife, Son and two cats.

When not working with technology I can generally be found playing with technology...or if you're really unlucky playing bass guitar (badly). My likes include music, films, travel and astronomy.
