Just caught Google+ app updating itself so I thought I'd check it out to see if there was anything new and then noticed the cast icon top right.
Now I'm not sure if it was there before or not.

Anyone?

It's like the bankers are sticking their middle finger up to the world.
No surprise there then.

The old saying:
"Today we have a device in our pockets that gives us immediate access to every piece of information known to man, yet we spend most of our time watching cat videos"

That said, at times it's bloody fantastic.

I use Google Sheets now and again and know a few very basic tricks but sometimes I simply have to resort to using Excel.

I know how to freeze a row in Sheets but couldn't find it in Excel, Google to the rescue.

If anyone knows about Camden in North London they'll know it's a mecca for tourists, especially students looking to buy black clothes.

For everyone else, the draw is the vibrant animated shop fronts.

A few years ago the area started taking on a new, corporate image which many protested against but, as usual, the developers money won and one of the first things the council decided to do was 'clean up' the area and owners were forced to remove the art that adorned their shop fronts for many years - probably using 'health and safety' as an excuse.

As this is just down the road I decided to trot down with camera in hand and act like a tourist photographing as many of the main shops as possible.

The main image here is the grey frontage with coloured stripes - that used to be the TVAM building which was then taken over by MTV.

Now, I think, it's been pulled down and turned into 1/ 2 bed flats. The ones that developers seem to love, but no-one asked for.

Now the area is still vibrant with tourists but overall bland.

Wonder how this and YouTube 360 videos would work together.

WordPress and web developer, Director of Point and Stare / Head Tech for social start-up AmazeWall.
Introduction
About 15 years ago I was pumping out hand made flyers and tickets for local band nights and raves when I got a phone call from a friend. He asked me if I knew anything about the internet: "you must know about it because you have an email address".
And so my online career commenced.

First port of call was with Microsoft, (designing and building a new Games website), I then swanned over to Apple (converting the US site to English for the UK market), Canon and various other top notch global companies. Remember, this was a long time ago (in internet years) when only the biggest companies could afford anything resembling a professional website.

Fast forward and I found myself at a subsidiary of +Canon UK based in the heart of what is now known as Tech City .
It was a grand job, with brilliantly inspirational people but, eventually, had to come to an end. That's when I set up the online production agency Point and Stare, around 6 years ago, and I'm still loving it.

Coding for WordPress, Google+, social media, client liaison, contract negotiating, IFTTT,  ... yep, that's essentially, my day with Point and Stare and AmazeWall.

At night you can usually find me huddled over a Google Hangout, annoying people on the 4Networking forum, writing WordPress plugins or generally planning my next move which currently includes putting the final touches to the Hangout Staff project.

I'll do World domination ... right after I finish writing this piece of code.
