I still keep hearing about people being called by alleged Microsoft support telling you that there's a problem with your computer. If they call you, tell them where to go and hang up, they will try to get money from you and if you do give them access to your computer they'll screw it up. Here's just one example of how they play nasty, do not entertain these scumbags

Looking forward to purchasing a new Nexus 6 in 2020 - assuming they're available by then... +Google Nexus+Android​ 

As 2014 draws to a close I can't help but think what an amazing year it's been. 3 trips to Africa, Kruger Park, 2 new nephews, a fiancé a bride and a wife (thankfully they are all the same person), two hospital stays, a new job, new friends and family in SA and a million other things. I enter 2015 with my wife feeling happy and hopeful for a future full of laughter and love and I wish the same for all of you. Except for the wife part, she's mine!

Posted by +Daniel Waisberg 

Knowing where your users are struggling is an important part of website optimization, and in order to do that it is essential to be able to segment the visitor flows in different ways.

2. Look at specific paths by highlighting them (click on #2 as shown in the screenshot below).
3. Analyze specific steps in the flow by mousing over them.

Happy Analyzing!

This is what I woke up to this year – wasn’t it nice?! And the following pics were the view from the house that night – stunning how the clouds creep lazily over the top of the mountain with the dying rays of the day’s sun being reflected on them.

Managed to get out for a long overdue trip on the bicycle last weekend. Time has been pretty tight this week due to being on-call and other reasons that need not be named. Hopefully this Tuesday will bring good news though. In the meantime, here’s some…

Skerries Sunset - Why you should live by the sea

After what feels like a long drawn-out day it’s nice to come home to such a sight . Being close to the sea was one of the two main reasons that I moved here and when I get to come home to views like this it’s easy to forget all your cares. I didn’t have…

I saw this Project Tango post last month over on and it blew me away to see the power of these phones, especially when you think where they were as recently as 10 years ago. Make sure you’re sitting on the floor because you’re about to fall off…
