Bytesized. Your weekly digital dose of all things tech in snackable bytes.
What a week. On Tuesday the Twitter machine went down and on Thursday the SEACOM cables in Egypt that connect to Europe were affected, which meant bad/slow internet for us. The Apple Watch becomes even cooler by teaming up with Hermes, an app by The Oatmeal launches, David Bowie is remembered in an awesome way and more.

PICTURE The shortest horror story? No internet connection. The shortest blind rage story? Slow internet.
READ THIS David Bowie’s Space Odessy has been turned into a children’s book that adults will also love. You can download and read the book here.
I'd love to chat to you some more.
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
