Instagram photos aren't currently sharing correctly to Flickr (either from the Instagram app or from IFTTT I believe). Possibly related to Flickr updating their SSL.

Accidentally got sent this video today. I'm not disappointed.

I convinced our sales manager to make a short video on the new Volkswagen Golf R. He's a natural. 
 
In this short video, our very own Mark Milligan introduces you to the new Volkswagen Golf R - with engine start-up and revs.

Twitter is now letting you tag up to 10 people in a photo and post up to 4 photos in one Tweet. Are all social networks become the same thing? Next you'll be able to check-in on Twitter.

Ah true. I updated the Twitter mobile app (which did mention briefly that the update was for changes to photos) but it looks like I still can't use the new features. Maybe that's in a later update? Or I'm doing it wrong!

Nearing the start of a ten day break. If only Social Media had an out-of-office message! Just kidding. As if I could really be away from my profiles for that long.

Some of our accounts have the new Twitter profiles. No more Twitter background. Just a big header (upload at 1500x500) and a larger profile photo (upload at 400x400).

"I cant imagine living in your guys' days with one of these"
Originally marketed in 1979, the first Sony Walkman turns 35 this year, and it's about as outmoded as a technology can be these days. That's why it's understandable that the kids in this delightful video, none of whom were not alive in the 90s, have no idea how to use the thing. Or what it's for. They can't even conceive a world in which a Walkman is useful.

Is it just me or can you not select 'Public' as a sharing option in the Google+ iOS app? I think it was there by default but if you delete it once there's no getting it back!

+Courtney Lambert nice to know it's not just me! I bet if you delete it and reinstall it the public option appears by default again, but as soon as you delete it you'll be in the same situation. Hmm.

Heather did a portrait photo shoot for my wife and I in Christchuch. The photos that she produced were remarkable and well exceeded our expectations - and having already seen the photos on her website, we already had high expectations to begin with! Heather also does some really nice wedding photography work and displays a lot of very stylish and vibrant photographs on her website. Recommended.

I dealt with Cotters following an espresso machine bought at Noel Leeming Riccarton. Noel Leeming passed the machine onto Cotters' for inspection. I had a phone call from one of Cotters' team - he was fairly friendly and showed good empathy. But when I went to collect it there had been a communication error - Noel Leeming's staff had told Cotters that I would be paying the inspection fee on arrival (after Noel Leeming had told me they would cover the fee themselves). A small communication problem which could have been fixed by one of Cotters' team making a phone call, but instead, Simon treated me as if I was wrong or making things up right from the beginning, and offered no assistance. Another staff member was reasonably helpful but then left to go to his office. I rang Noel Leeming myself while I was at Cotters and battled with a national call centre (Cotters' staff should have made this call, given that they had a direct dial number for the local store and knew who they needed to talk to) before finally getting hold of Chris at Noel Leeming who was great. He apologised and asked to speak to Simon to clarify that Noel Leeming would be paying the fee, not myself. Simon spoke with Noel Leeming briefly, hung up the phone, avoided my eye contact and simply said "Yup". I waited ... seeing that I hadn't moved, he finally looked me in the eye, said "You can take it" and went back to his work. No explanation as to the outcome of the phone call, no apology for having been wrong and for the frosty welcome, and definitely no "Bye, have a great day!" Next time I'll only be dealing with the retailer. I'd offered to help both Noel Leeming and Cotters by collecting the equipment directly from Cotters myself, rather than Cotters sending it back to Noel Leeming for me to collect (which is where I'd returned it to), but in future I won't bother. I hope I don't have to deal with Cotters again.
