Microsoft Lumia ditches the Nokia brand

Nokia Smartphones are dead, long live Microsoft Lumia It makes a refreshing change to write about Microsoft, Lumia and Windows Phone because it gives us an excuse to scrutinise the latest developments in Redmond’s smartphone business.

Children with Woggles

I’m done with Physical Shopping

For the uninitiated amongst us, a Woggle (sometimes referred to as a ‘Noodle’ too) is a long polystyrene tube that children (in particular) use to support themselves (and play with) whilst swimming. Our eldest (Archie, 4) is getting into swimming big time. He’s having lessons. They […]

HMV heads into administration: About time
