Menace for Mobike in Manchester

So, here’s the idea. You download either the Android or the iPhone app. You create an account and then, using the app, you find a pushbike in your local area. You scan the code on the bike and off you go. When you’re done, and you’ve reached your …

Scotland Charity Special – Watch me live!

Last week I asked our 10,000 Twitter followers and 40,000 weekly readers to help by donating a bit of cash to Edwards Trust. They help parents and carers bereaved, or about to be bereaved, of their son or daughter. They also support children and young people who are …

Good morning all. Yes, it’s that time of year again.

My day job involves a lot of sitting down. A lot of tea drinking and a lot of mouse moving. It is not, let me tell you, the most strenuous job in the world. A few years ago I had to register with a new doctor. He wanted …

BeeLine – Cycle navigation made easy

I like the sound of this little doo-hickey. Just strap it to your bike and it’ll provide a simple guide to your destination. An arrow shows you the direction you need to be heading and below it’ll show how many miles remain. You can then make the best …

A quick break in our regular programming

Yes, it’s that time again. Another one of my bike rides and another attempt by me to relate it to mobile phones or something. No. I’m not going to do that this time. Yes, I’m doing a bike ride. Yes, it’s even more insane this year. We’re basically …

I’m riding a bike again. Help me. Help me.

A quick break in regular programming while I royally abuse my position and ask you for donations. If you don’t want to read all the details but would like to help, just pick up a phone and text the phrase NAZG69 followed by a space and then £2 …

MWC – Ford looking to solve your city transport problems

In London our underground system works very well considering the age and complexity of it. People commute in and out of the city and leave their cars in expensive car-parks or, if you run a business servicing the city, you have to try and get your big diesel …

Right, I’m off

OK, I’m going to take some airtime and abuse my position just one last time. Don’t turn off just yet. I’ll make this brief for you. Later today I’ll be heading for London. I’m not attending a fancy press launch with miniature food, no. I’m going to get …

How much tech can you put into cycling?

In just a few days time I’m planning to do a cycle ride for charity. It’s in aid of the the Douglas Macmillan Hospice. I have a grand total of £0 in sponsorship on my JustGiving page. I’m dedicating it and doing it in memory of my father. …

Our Saturday Omnibus

Hello weekend people. I’ve been told this morning that a couple of videos I uploaded this week were a little corrupted. I’ve now re-uploaded them, and I firmly blame a combination of bad weather, a droppy WiFi connection and wholesale gas prices. First, our look at some of …

Tracking your bike ride? Watch out, you might get burgled.

Today I received an email. That, in itself, isn’t remarkable. I get a few. However, this one was from the Police. Luckily it arrived to inform me that a number of bikes had been stolen from the local area. This, in fact, was the second such email and …

MWC – Motorola MOTOACTV – Up close

So today I went to see Motorola. Two very nice gents (Bobby and Joel) took me through the latest Motorola gear and it started with this – a watch. Now, I should just point out that this isn’t just “a watch”, it’s actually more of a personal trainer …
