I am not a reviewer. I am a little bored, breaking in a new keyboard and spent more time choosing a pair of wireless earbuds than I would care to admit. Rather than let my struggle be repeated by others, I thought I’d treat you (all three of you) to my thoughts on choosing the […]

The wonders of ISO/IEC ISO27001… Why you should think about implementing it in your SME.
I thought it would be a good idea to put together a series of short articles championing the value of ISO/IEC ISO27001 for people with little to no experience with information security and to put it in plain English so it can be read over a cup of coffee. The threat of cyber crime is […]

I was lucky enough to grab a 15 minute try on appointment at the Apple Store in Regent Street, and thought I’d share some thoughts about my brief experience with the watch.

Dear Amazon, Please Kill TicketMaster.
‘A band you follow is touring in your area!’ Catches my attention from the corner in my eye as a push notification appears on my computer desktop. I’ve been waiting for this band to return to London for a while, and due to a new single release earlier in the year, my hopes of a […]
