Facebook sends operators a friend request at the TM Forum

At the recent TM Forum in Nice, Facebook used the opportunity to reach out to operators to try and persuade them to open their hearts and minds. Historically the relationship between Facebook and mobile operators has been a little… frosty. Some love the social network site, some simply can’t stand it. It’s a bit like […]

I now have 2 petabytes of Google storage

    I’ve been experimenting with Google Photos recently. My policy has been to stick 7,000 photos and videos from my iPhone on to Google Photos via their iOS app and then see how the service performs.  I am pretty impressed.

So, who got an Apple Watch this morning?

Yes, the mainstream retail experience is still really rubbish

I’m back in London now, if you haven’t been following my updates on LinkedIn. Being back in London means I am now once again being exposed to all manner of excitements and frustrations, rather than simply driving to Swindon every day and having a pleasant experience at the hands of BaxterStorey’s finest.

Apple’s March 9 keynote: Initial impressions

I sat down and watched Apple’s keynote this evening, end-to-end. Apple is, without a doubt, a company at the top of it’s game. I strongly admired the work they’re doing with ResearchKit — enabling medical researchers around the world to deploy research apps/services using iPhone sensors. Admirable stuff. All of it with a commercial bent […]
