Give Yahoo some friggin’ breathing room

Carol Bartz has taken the helm at the once-great Yahoo. Described as a long time ‘senior player’ in Silicon Valley, she is apparently made of stern stuff. So much so that Mike Harvey of The Times Tech column was rather impressed. I wonder if it’s the fact that she, “dodged questions about what happens next […]

My arse with Twitter. Help.

I was trying to explain the power of Twitter to a group of smarts the other day. “It’s all about the network effect,” I said. It’s, “all about who’s following you.” It’s, “Errr, status updates,” I said, beginning to fail in my task at moving them into the Mobile 2.0 arena. I even pointed to […]

Blyk: third time (un)lucky.

I haven’t done an update on the loveliness, that isn’t Blyk in a while; and so, I thought, today I would. I mean, what else is better than having a good old moan?* Well, to be honest it hasn’t been going good. Yesterday I “celebrated” my six week anniversary of Blyk not working; not much […]
