Last post over 18 months ago! Not good. Kind of neglected my blog whilst on placement, which in hindsight is silly. Anyway, back now after a 12 month placement with Cummins Power Generation in Kent and looking to reshape and refocus this space!
More to come soon, Jon!
Psy – the artist (debatable) responsible for giving us “Gangnam Style” is now back, and breaking more records.
After reading this post on TechCrunch, Psy has released another hit with “Gentleman” and accumulated 38 million hits on day 1 of appearing on YouTube.
Gangnam Style was the first video to hit 1 billion views back in December and achieved a whopping $8 million in revenue for Google via Youtube!
So with “Gentleman” reaching an audience of 100 million in just four days, there could be a surge from the same artist to beat records associated with the social platform.
Definitely not my cup of tea, but here is the video regardless..

A little time has passed since my postings, but I will keep them more regular I promise. Found this while browsing Digital Buzz the other day. Facebook are looking to keep connections everywhere whilst using a phone.
Facebook home allows communication with friends no matter what tasks are being carried out on the mobile, therefore eradicating the need to actually use the Facebook app. You can Facebook at any time more conveniently.

It has been a while since my last post! I have legitimate reasoning though. I have been involved in a lot of uni work over the past few weeks, preparing for group assignments and placement searches. I am actually posting about something I found a couple of weeks back, which I found really interesting.
I’m a music fan, as I’m sure a lot of people are. My iPod is an essential to any journey I make alone, as a pass time and a source of entertainment. Music makes everything better – socializing, working, even training.
But what about when your not alive?

A while has passed since my last post! I will put that down to assignments due, interview prep and general rushing around. It doesn’t help when you work in retail over Christmas either, with a lot of hours!
Anyway.. hope all readers have had a nice festive period. This post may concern a few subscribers to the Internet media streaming company Netflix!

Have you ever been given a poor view at a sporting event? Pillars in your way, or even way back in row Z?
It is always even more annoying when you can actually see seats with a better view available, that nobody has taken!
The chances of grabbing those seats without being caught by a steward or a ticket man without telling you to move out of the seats are slim! Well thanks to Pogoseat, there is now a way to improve your sporting experiences, and occupy those seats with a better view!
Although this is idea is based for American Sports, such as basketball and baseball, the innovative application is a groundbreaking idea. So, how does it work?
