Westfield’s new app, it knows what you like but not who you are

1 Jul my westfield app

If there’s something to be learnt from Snowden and horsemeat, it’s that we don’t really mind what you do as long as you let us in on it first. What Westfield’s new app does so well is that it tells you upfront what it needs from you to make your shopping experience more enjoyable without asking you where you live or your first school.

Lenovo, doing their bit to keep the peace

28 Jun Horizon

When I got the invite from 3 Monkeys to a gaming night I didn’t expect I’d end up playing air hockey on a tablet. I didn’t expect it would be on a 27″ tablet either.

So you want to build a website

28 Jun website building

We’ve come a long way since websites were magnolia coloured pages with Comic Sans or Times New Roman type and the greatest amount of interactivity were the animated gifs and scrolling text. Building a good site might seem a lot more complex now but it’s really quite simple. Here are a few things to bear in mind. Continue reading

Deal with it! – stopping a complaint before it starts

27 Jun don't complain concept

I just had an interesting conversation with the admin staff at my daughter’s school, similar to the kind you might have at the doctor’s surgery with reception, or the returns desk at B&Q, and it made me realise how easy it would be to prevent people from complaining about your service.

Far from the madding crowd

23 Jun Brown Hart Panorama

If there’s one thing I love about London, it’s the nice surprises you find right in the centre of all the chaos. A tweet from Benugo led me to the Brown Hart Gardens, a place that can only be described as an oasis of calm. Continue reading

Gifts without the gift receipt

18 Jun dadkids2

Father’s day is done; the one day in the year we get those gifts, assortment of cards and kind words. This year I didn’t get that mini fridge stocked with beer or a Bugatti espresso maker, I got something better. Continue reading

Making soup exciting again

17 Jun Soup can make you thin

You wouldn’t have thought soup recipes would be appetising at any other time than winter but the moment I opened up Soup Can Make You Thin – The Cookbook, I had a sudden urge to go out and buy a new pot. Continue reading

The price of getting involved

10 Jun toddler crossing

I mentioned in my last post about Benugo at Waterloo that I do like to get involved in things I care about. I’m about to add road safety to that list. Strange topic for a petrol-head like me, but then again, is it really? Continue reading

Worth waiting for – Benugo’s mocha

7 Jun benugo lamb wrap

I’ve been told recently that I love attention, I disagree (of course) but if that’s true I’m probably going to be the last one to know aren’t I? In my mind however, I like to think of more along the lines of getting involved. That’s one of the reasons why, if I really like a place – and yes we’re talking coffee here – I get involved.
