I found this a really interesting comparison between petrol and electric engines.

Battery V Petrol | Fully Charged
When Bosch loaned me a 'pro' electric lawn mower, they spoiled mowing for me for life. Using the electric one is so much easier, quieter and of course it actually cuts grass faster and with less faff.
However the similarities between the electric and the petrol mower, both self powered (you don't have to push) rotary mowers with same size cutting area, this inspired me to carry out an experiment.
When you use the energy equivalent in petrol as is stored in the battery, the same amount of kilowatt hours, you get quite markedly different results.

I must confess I had to check the date after reading tweets about this - it feels like an April 1st news story!

Don't have the money to hire a video crew? No problem. Anyone with a mobile device can create outstanding video with clear sound.

Worth reading if you're a blogger who reviews or promotes products or events. If you were paid to write about something, or got it for free, you must disclose that fact.
Businesses are ambushing rivals with fake reviews and customers are reportedly using the threat of online criticism to win discounts, research finds.

On today’s School Run Podcast we are joined by Georgette Rowland Osborne with a voicemail titled “Why it is Important to Pursue Your Dreams for Your Children’s Sake” I LOVE LOVE LOVE this voicemail! If you are a Mum who wants to go out there and “do your thing” then you NEED to listen to …

Interesting... Everyone was speculating they were going to Netflix, but this is quite a coup for Amazon...

Sad news :(
James Horner, the Hollywood composer who wrote the score for the Oscar-winning film hit Titanic, dies in a plane crash in California.

Snort... Just started listening to the A Beautiful Mind soundtrack, which I hadn't heard before. It's a little more subtle, but the traditional four notes are there (at about 7 seconds into the first track)!

I know this has been around for a while, but if you're a Game of Thrones fan this is essential viewing.

Yup. The whole Red Nose Day show wasn't especially good. (David Duchovny sucked as a presenter - almost totally lifeless delivery) but this part was definitely one of the highlights.

How is it I have managed to produce a child who prefers the Demi Lovato version of "Let it Go" to the Idina Menzel one?!

And please excuse the earlier brain fart. What I earlier referred to as a bridge is a) probably more accurately referred to as a "B section", and b) only instrumental for about 5 bars! My only excuse would be a lack of pre-comment coffee. ;-)

Story
Tagline
Geeky wife, mother, podcaster and blogger
Introduction
Hi there, thanks for stopping by. I'm Ruth, sometimes known as Rufus, Artoo or geekmummy. I'm a wife to one, mother of two (my daughter was born in 2007 and my son joined the family in 2010), and I try to juggle working part time in an office with running the home and looking after the family.

Then in my spare time I produce a weekly podcast with my husband called Parental Geekery. And I write my geekmummy blog.

I'm a tech geek, and I am particularly interested in how technology can be used within families. I play World of Warcraft, but don't get as much time to play as I'd like. I love cats and I enjoy amateur dramatics.
