We’ve been playing with Twitter ads for a little while and, because we have a few accounts, I noticed an odd disparity. On the Crunch Twitter account we were able to access the full suite of Twitter ad products (Analytics, cards, website referrals, conversion tracking etc.), but on the Freelance Advisor account we couldn’t get […]
Here’s a handy tip I picked up the other day. Adding bookmarks to Chrome is pretty damn easy, obviously, but for some reason Google haven’t added the ability to put them on your Chrome OS shelf yet (the shortcut bar at the bottom of the screen). However, this feature is being built by Google and […]
Paym launched today with wall-to-wall media coverage. It’s a new payment system developed by the Payments Council (the people in charge of making sure financial transactions in the UK work) that allows the sending and receiving of money using just a mobile number as identifying information.
The Chromecast is a great bit of kit, and we’ve been using it to stream everything from Formula 1 to This American Life to our TV since I picked one up a few weeks ago.
One simple (yet apparently unachievable) thing I’ve always wanted from my bank is an Android widget that displays my current balance. The Lloyds online banking system is an abject horror (as I’ve detailed at length before), and their mobile app is little more than a front end for their equally dire mobile site (as well […]
A favourite sport of mine is to watch the continual twists and turns of the SEO industry. An interesting phenomenon I’ve encountered recently amongst fellow publishers is a fantastical weariness of the SEO industry chasing links, especially in “high value” publications. I think it’s always good practice to link to a company when you mention […]
I love to swear. Fucking love it. I also love my Nexus 4, however these two things do not mix well. One of the foibles of Android is that it doesn’t include swear words in its dictionary, and will not allow you to add them using the in-line “Add to dictionary” dialogue when typing something. […]
Never were truer words spoken when thinking about the technology sector. Last week somebody asked me to name a large, publicly traded technology company which is still popular with both the public at large and the “cool kids” in the Valley and Shoreditch. The obvious answers would be Apple and Google, however both of those […]
WARNING for all #brightonseo boys. Venue has confusing toilet design. For clarity: twitter.com/BomTailey/stat… — Tom Bailey (@BomTailey) April 12, 2013 Yesterday I spent most of the day at the Brighton Dome attending BrightonSEO. Most of the people who know me raised at least one eyebrow when I announced I was going – I don’t have […]
There has never been, so far as I can remember, a social network built on a hardware or commerce platform. Retail sites are constantly trying to introduce social hooks into their service (those annoying “Tell Facebook you just bought this item!” prompts), some with more success than others. An ecosystem-specific social network has yet to […]
