More transactions performed on mobile, but less apps downloaded

New figures released by the Gambling Commission show that the amount of bets placed in the traditional local bookmaker is on the wane. Now 33% of all gambling is done online and, despite what the high street in your local town might look like, the report shows that …

Amazon to open a store without a checkout

Online retail giant Amazon has decided to do away with any kind of checkout process in a new store. Customers will instead show their phone when they walk in, pick up their goods and just walk off. Grabbing anything off the shelves, stuffing it in your bag and walking out. …

Insane? Money no object? No taste? Get yourself a 3D selfie!

For a moment early this morning I honestly thought I’d dreamt this. Perhaps it was part of a drunken vision. No. Wait… it’s a real thing. Oh dear me. Where do I start with this? Well, let’s say you’ve just taken a really good selfie and you don’t …

Apple iPhone 5s – Good luck getting one today, you’ll need it

Further evidence is emerging this morning following our earlier story on the iPhone 5s stock situation. It all began when we started seeing lots of pre-order offers for the iPhone 5c but absolutely none for the iPhone 5s. Yesterday we then spotted that O2 would not have any …

Apple trademarks their shop! No, it’s not April Fool’s Day

Apple are well known for trademarking and patenting their items. They’ve already trademarked the leaf of the Apple logo and even registered a patent for the shape of the iPad, so it comes as no surprise to hear they’re adding another to the list… this time… THE SHOP! …

Samsung continues with anti-Apple adverts

Samsung have continued to pump out their Galaxy SII adverts in the USA and they seem to be following a very similar vein. Earlier we saw how Samsung poked fun at Apple customers queuing and camping outside stores for the “Next big thing” and now Samsung are saying …

Drunken purchases help online sales

I’ll admit that I’m one of the people who have accepted a parcel that I knew nothing about. It has your name on the box, it’s addressed correctly, but you’re not expecting any deliveries. Hmmm.. Perhaps you’ve won a prize? As you open it and examine the Potty …

Got a signal problem on the weekly shop?

It’s not often that I write a rambling post… well, OK.. perhaps quite a few of you would disagree with that. The thing is, I’ve noticed something. This weekend we were shopping at the local Tesco. It’s the usual scene, you put a few items in the trolley …
