Lies everywhere. The truth is dead.

I write about this topic fairly regularly because the internet gives you strange mixture of perspective and pessimism about well, everything really. Real journalism, journalism that costs money and takes time, is dying. Real printed newspapers are seeing their circulation falling off a cliff, and with the internet …

Enormous unnecessary Brexit rant and remote mouse killer. Engage!

This was going to be a look at a slightly bizarre gadget. However, I’ve lost all concept of the word “bizarre” nowadays. To be honest here in Britain we’re so far down the rabbit hole right now, everything else kinda seems normal. Boris Johnson? Seriously? The guy flat …

The European Elections. It’s all about phone orientation.

Let’s not try and get into politics. You can probably guess my stance as I’ve been lucky enough to visit several European countries over the years and I really can’t see any tangible benefit of leaving. As part of the EU, Britain has access to 36 free trade …

Brexit – A quick editorial

Things are moving uncomfortably quickly here in Britain. It doesn’t matter whether you voted to Leave or to Remain, this mess is not what anybody was promised or expected. The situation, as I type, is that the “Theresa May Deal” is to come back, for a third time, …

Three roll out their own Brexit bus

OOoohh… bit dangerous this. Driving a bus round with promises written on the side. How much do we believe that ? :) So, whilst Parliament goes into a full-on meltdown about a Brexit which nobody can agree on, Three have driven up and down the road outside to …

Brexit, Trump and disinformation. Democracy is being controlled.

Whether you’re voting for a new US President or you’re deciding to be part of the EU, in 2016 something new happened. Social media giants allowed a “Wild West” to be created in the digital world. Unregulated and targeted adverts to be pushed hard into the psyche of …

Three UK are the only network to hold roaming prices post-Brexit

Can our hung parliament and chaotic government really “take back control” from the EU? Who knows, but it does raise an interesting question. What will happen with our newly-acquired EU roaming deal? After Brexit, if we ever get it sorted out, will Brits see a return to the …

Here’s the news. Don’t believe the news.

Today, here in the UK, it’s time to vote. Have you decided which party you’re going to vote for? If so, how exactly did you come to your conclusion? Perhaps now, more than ever, your decision won’t have been made after reading the manifesto of each party. If …

European roaming law gets update – no 90-day limit

OK, story so far then. We’re all fairly familiar with the “bill shock” that comes with a trip across a local border here in Europe. Take a short trip on the Eurostar and your phone suddenly costs a whole lot more to use than it does back home. …

OnePlus threaten to increase prices as a result of #Brexit

Errr… so, we’ve been sent quite a few “announcements” from companies following the EU referendum last week. The information we’re getting is sometimes contradictory, sometimes wrong and sometimes biased. Pretty much, you might say, like the whole campaign has been to date on both sides. Anyhoo, we’ve got …
