Stolen Ideas: Apple Didn’t Build That [INFOGRAPHIC]

Interesting infographic charting Apple`s progress:


The internet? Yeah, whatever…

I caught sight of this old tabloid press article the other day, charting some British chap’s discovery of some new-fangled thing called the Internet, whatever that was. Well, of course, it never took off.


The world’s most in-demand employers: by LinkedIn

This infographic is of particular interest to me, as someone who spends their working life between South-East England and the US West Coast. According to a study by LinkedIn, and based on the data of job seekers within their network, the most desirable location in the world to seek work is San Francisco. This isn’t surprising given the burgeoning success of the Tech sector. It’s backed up by a strong showing from the UK, which leads Europe in terms of desirability and opportunity.


On the face of it, things look rosy for me as a freelance Technology copywriter. But with desirability of course, comes intense competition – so I’ll continue to do the best job I can for all those I work with.
If you’re looking for copywriting support within the Technology sector, at home or abroad, please give me a call!


Welcome to Brewster

OK. This sounds interesting. A new app that merges your various social media contacts together but in a convenient way. Like most people, I’ve got some Facebook friends, some Twitter followers, some LinkedIn business contacts and a shedload of iPhone names and numbers – but I don’t have the whole picture for more than a few people. It’s more a disorganised list of names, numbers, email addresses, photos and statuses. But what if something could combine them all for me? It sounds like this is what Brewster can do.

Colour code your phone stress

I’m not too sure this is a good idea. Not for me, anyway. I tend to get more stressed when I don’t know the outcome of things. I don’t like surprises. I’d rather hear the outcome and deal with the consequences.

That’s why I’m not sure how I feel about these proposals for colour coding mobile phone messages based on expected stress.
