Did Google kill a donkey!?

We love the internet, and the curious little browsers who find amazing ‘stuff’. One great example of such ‘stuff’ is the following: If you click here and drive past the Donkey, and then look back, it appears as if the Google Maps car drive-by’d the poor lil’ fella. Google did however respond to the charge, saying […]

Gmail releases new minimalist compose ‘screen’

We love the way Gmail implements beautiful changes… Today we noticed the new compose mechanism that allows you to still browse emails whilst typing a new message. It’s slick, it’s simple and is pretty damn cool. What do you think?

Why targeted ads are good for you.

There are many campaigns around the internet trying to stop companies like Facebook and Google from using the information you share with them to target ads at you, but we disagree with them. Not only as marketeers, but mostly as consumers, we find that the more targeted an advert is, the more successful it is. […]

Wake up Samsung, Apple and HTC! RIM is down!

We noticed earlier today that Blackberry’s Internet Services had been down in Manchester, United Kingdom. A few moments ago, Blackberry announced (via their fan-page on Facebook) that there was a problem with their services in Europe, Africa and other regions. The question popped straight into our minds… as people became visually upset about the outage […]

How YouTube could become more ‘social’ with Google+
