Blog

Category: Corporate | c: | m:

Y'know things that are all the rage? Blogs. Everyone has one; or at least had one before Facebook, Twitter and Google+ diluted the realtime pool.

Since I'm nu-old skool — and watching endless streams of people retweeting the decades old picture of that cat with the lime on its head using bit.ly links isn't Like-worthy — I figured why not make a blog? The main difference here compared with other people's blogs is that instead of being limited to one topic, you get a little slice of everything all mashed up. Who says I'm late to the social party?

    Android is alright as far as operating systems go. It’s no iOS, but far more usable than Windows phone software. Unless it starts eating your battery.

  • Windows 10 End User License Agreement to the rescue

    [2 comments] · 466 words (sucks up about 3 mins)

    Why do software companies think they know what’s best for everyone? In the case of Microsoft, rolling out Windows 10 without asking… make… Stef… mad. Stef SMASH Microsoft.

  • Downloading danger

    · 576 words (kills about 3 mins)

    Copyright. Restrictions. Legal threats. DRM. Piracy. Alligators befriending canaries. There are lots of inexplicable things in this world, but the entertainment industry take some beating.

  • TTIP, ISDS and the contract mismatch

    · 858 words (sucks up about 4 mins)

    The proposed trade deals between the US and Europe are shady at best. Shrouded in secrecy until recently, I couldn’t figure why aspects of it were necessary. Until now.

  • On choosing a good corporate identity

    · 316 words (kills about 2 mins)

    There are some ropey domain names out there that should never have made it past the first round. Note to the world: think before you buy.
