I mean, really respect them, or are they just subtle numbers, that make up your entity? ‘It’s not work per se, it’s the way we work’ – that is incredibly difficult to get absolutely right these days. The entity ‘perceives,’ quite wrongly, that it has to be wired in 24/7 – 365 – and thisContinue reading DO YOU RESPECT YOUR EMPLOYEES?
Very interesting to hear, a commentator say the other night (though I’d still like to verify), that there are more start-ups from this age group, than any other. And as I loathe, and detest, categorising people into baby boomers / millennials / generation Y or Z, let’s stick with the age group, by number. AndContinue reading SAY, 48+
Of course I’ll challenge you, no point in being your mentor, if I just agree with everything, and go with the flow. And yes, I’ll be critical, but constructively critical – as there’s a big difference. Your mentor is not there for the ride (though there are plenty out there who are), they’re there toContinue reading OF COURSE I’LL CHALLENGE YOU
I can understand for security reasons, as everyone seems bereft without their smartphone. But apps. like LinkedIn, Twitter – why? why? why? As all they seem to do, is just keep piling on the gimmicks. But what else are they doing – WE CONSUMERS SHOULD BE ASKING? For every time, apart from the ‘smokescreen’ ofContinue reading UPDATES OF UPDATES
Whilst I very much respect the need for technology improvements, and some are indeed worthwhile, there are others where the consequences of such a ‘supposed’ improvement, have a detrimental knock on affect, further down the product chain. Being disabled, and therefore unable to move quickly, my Bank recently advised me to get an Rfid protectedContinue reading rfid – the challenge?
GO ON, ADMIT IT – YOU’VE BEEN CONNED, SO HAVE I, SO HARE OUR CHILDREN. When was the last time that you looked inside your fridge, whilst in the supermarket, to check how many Dairylea wedges were left in the closed box? When was the last time that you engaged your shiny aluminium knob intoContinue reading Consumer Technology – The Ultimate Con
WHAT’S WRONG WITH THAT? NOWT!! Lighter than your car keys, or make up bag. Can be used anywhere, and generally totally secure. So why do we want all these silly payment apps, with ALL their personal information intrusions? Who an earth, wants to carry their double glazing around with them all the time, just toContinue reading ‘a debit card – a credit card – a £20 note’
‘Singen added Self-Drive to his toothbrush, but he still had to floss’ ‘Hubert put Bitcoin in his piggy bank, but it still weighed the same’ ‘Norman added Blockchain to his carrots, but they still grew bent’ ‘Stanley added Touchscreen to his belly button, but he still suffered from wind’ ‘Ludevic added VR to his glasses,Continue reading A MERRY QUIP FOR MODERN TIMES
Don’t shout – read – think about it? It’s very easy, with a slight amount of grey matter, and intellect (that we all have), to take the St. Michael (the piss), out of Consumer Tech., and I for one urge everyone to do it openly, and publicly. Now that’s not to say every ounce ofContinue reading TAKING THE ‘ST. MICHAEL OUT OF CONSUMER TECH
Just like millions, and being disabled, I rely upon a certain amount of SMART tech., that I want to work brilliantly, all the time. So when I deleted WhatsApp from my S8+, for being the most annoying app I’ve ever come across, I expected everything to be duly removed. Ran the Samsung cleaning tool, andContinue reading SOFTWARE DROSS
