The iPad Mini (a mini review)

iPad Mini

[Disclaimer] I will be talking a lot about Apple products during this review. I have a lot of them and if these apps and tools I have become accustomed too existed on other devices, I’d be sure to be purchasing outside the Apple brand. I have no loyalty to Apple other than their expensive tools […]

John ‘Lofty’ Wiseman

Back in 1986 my paper round money went on a copy of John ‘Lofty’ Wiseman’s SAS Survival Handbook. I still have it. I’d managed to get a copy just before it was banned. Shortly after it was revised without the mantraps and chemical concoctions. All the bits we would talk about at school. I had […]

The Y-Cam Bullet IP Camera

I got sent the Y-Cam Bullet last year and then when I moved home it found itself into a box, only to be re-discovered last week. Cables, adapters, wall/ceiling mount, power lead, optional sun visor etc, all  come in the box. I had already purchased a Y-cam S in black over 2 years ago (the older […]

My 1000th Audioboo

Me and Audioboo on my iPhone with a 'spoffle' on.

Listen! Firstly I have to thank the soundsmith @MCFontaine for sending me this mashup created from a few of my audio recordings on  Audioboo. I love what he has done and am inspired to one day.. perhaps.. trawl through the (aprox) 83 hours of Audioboo’s I’ve done in the last two years. Prior to finding the Audioboo iPhone […]

Were Secret Societies The First Social Networks?

I am not a Freemason but i have been asked more than once to don the apron and swear the oaths.. I have also been told that Freemasonry is not a secret society, It is a society with secrets. Never-the-less, it was the thought of being admitted to a secret society that attracted me to […]

My AudioBoo Podcast

Well I never. In only three days AudioBoo has metamorphosed before my eyes into a simple, intuitive podcasting solution. It’s been around for longer than that (read my blog for more info) but I just took a look at my AudioBoo iTunes Feed and i have done what appears to be 30 mini podcasts in […]

2008 a journey with friends

The Documentally podcast in it’s iTunes form started in 2006, i started video blogging and using twitter in 2007 but it was 2008 that felt like social media really took off for me. Maybe because I felt like I was no longer just a photographer. My ability to take photos and document things was now […]

Episode 44 – Kiss Privacy Goodbye

Back on June the 25th, for the second year running myself and Dr John Perivolaris, visited George Orwell’s grave for his birthday. This year we were accompanied by Phil Campbell and Brian Jones and as we picnicked in honour of Eric Arthur Blair, we also discussed our ever diminishing civil liberties, asking what is public […]
