Flipboard for Windows 8 review

Flipboard for Windows 8 is finally in the Windows store. And it was worth the wait. I’ve one criticism (and it’s a big one), but far more praise (and it’s big praise). As this is a public relations blog I don’t often review or write about technology (despite it being a good way to get […]

Windows Surface RT rocks

If you believe the übergeeks I’ve bought a pup. The worst damned tablet ever. But there again if you believe the übergeeks an iPad with its retina display will enable you to create art like de Vinci, compose music like Mozart, make your toast and fly you to the moon. Back in the real world […]

Like Neville I was an original TweetDeck fan, in fact we were probably both amongst the first to use it after Ian Dodsworth launched it.
