Twitter… Preserve it!

Twitter, like Facebook is one of my many online addictions. As bad as it sounds, I’m not quite sure how I would properly function without it… Then again, I’ve always been a little odd.

Mobile Drama!

It’s a phenomenon that has been circulating around for the past few years; “Mobile Soaps”, which are specifically aimed and targeted at people like myself… Teens!

All I Want For Christmas…

In an ideal world, I would ask for happiness, and the end of this dismal time of year. But of course I’m not here to discuss that! No, no, no… What do I want from the world of Mobile this Christmas? Firstly, I call for originality. I personally think originality should be the first aspect […]

Youth: Text in Knife Crime Concerns

So I’m back to school this week; and during my free lessons, I often find myself aimlessly wandering around. I probably shouldn’t be, as I have mountains of work to do, but it’s certainly more fun. But it turns out my aimless journeys around my over-crowded school can come in handy… And I came across […]

Using SMS for the greater good!

I love it when I see mobile phones being put to good use, and I also love it when say for important issues, mobile phones are being utilised to capture a target audience in the best sense and way possible. I was browsing around my daily choice of news reads, when I came across an […]
