Here are four simple steps on how to stop those annoying political posts from littering your Facebook feed. Read more

Elements of Art Marketing That Work Today

There are a lot of different ways to look at marketing. Most people look at it through the lens of digital means. Digital marketing is a good thing, but it doesn’t always work, if you just focus on one or two things. If you’re going to make any moves, you’ll need to focus on several components to help spread the word about what you’re doing. This all depends on the industry that you’re in. Different industries require you to work with marketing on different levels. For instance, consider the following elements that can help you with art marketing, especially if you want to gain the upper hand in today’s art world. Modern art, or any type of art requires a different approach overall. Read more

Halo Wars 2 announced

Halo Wars 2 announced

Heys guys and gals, welcome back to my computers and electronics blog. Any Bungie fanboys out there? Or I guess these days the question is and 343 Industry fanboys out there? If so you Im guessing you know what I am going to talk about; Halo Wars 2 was announced recently! I remember getting the first game when it came out on the Xbox 360 years ago, I even got the Bradygames strategy guide with it. I don’t know if I will be able to get the sequel as it will only be released on Xbox One and Windows computers, and with that kind of wording I don’t expect the game to be available on Steam. The game may get a release similar to that of Blizzard’s OverWatch, but knowing how Microsoft has been operating lately I expect the PC version to actually be a dumbed down version intended for tablets.

Choosing the right Baby Monitor.

13/02/2017 Main

Hi everyone, I thought I’d talk about something a bit different today on my computer and consumer electronics blog.  Rather than our usual entertainment computer posts such as our latest post on the Samsung notebook, we will be looking into more functional baby monitoring devices. Read more

Samsung notebook market

Samsung notebook market
 

Although Samsung have never been a big player in the laptop market, 2015 saw no major changes, in fact their laptops haven’t seen drastic changes for quite some time. They launched the Ativ Book 9 and the Book 9 Plus their web support was not up to form and the battery failed miserably with their competitors. The positives are that both models look pretty cool, and any spec doesn’t weigh in at more than 4 pounds. Both laptops have attractive aluminium designs and good quality screens, but pricing pound for pound against other manufacturers failed when comparing specs also. Read more

Gaming with my new Geoforce 8800

Hey guys, I would like to welcome you all back to my computer and electronics blog. I recently splurged(for me at least) and bought myself a used graphics card online. I managed to get a EVGA NVIDIA GeoForce 8800 gts online, to be exact. For years I was using a really old memory card that I bought for $10 at a garage sale, but no more. Now with my fancy new to me GeoForce 8800, I can conquer the world. Or the universe, or Tamriel for that matter. I can play all these games that I couldn’t, and here is a rundown of the ones I have been playing most. Read more

POS Software for Small Businesses 

Welcome back folks.  Today I wanted to talk about choosing the right point of sale (POS) software for your small business, whether it is geared towards retail or hospitality.  Technology has advanced so much over the years, it seems that almost every aspect of life nowadays can be enhanced with technology.  In this case though, it makes perfect sense to.  So I wanted to share with you some useful information about using a simple piece of POS software (along with an optional tablet), that will replace your current headache of a manual system, keep accurate records for you, in fact, do pretty much all of the work for you, and give you reason to start smiling again.  Read more

Pioneer In-Dash DVD Receiver

After having a rare trip in my great Uncle’s new Jaguar, it got me looking at in-dash DVD players to see what’s going around on the market these days. My Uncle’s Jag has all the bells and whistles so as you can imagine, there’s a pretty neat, interactive, built-in screen on the dash that does just about everything you could imagine. Read more

Vaping

04/09/2016 Main
 

As someone who has battled with smoking addiction over the years, I have followed the rise of vaping with great interest. For those who don’t know, vaporizer pens (AKA shisha pens or E-cigarettes) are devices that allow you to imbibe nicotine to satisfy your addiction, without all the other harmful substances in cigarettes. There are around 400 toxic substances in cigarettes including nicotine, tar, and carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic, and DDT to name but a few. Vaporizer pens heat up a nicotine liquid without burning it to produce the vapour that helps you stave off the cravings without all those other ingredients. You can find a pen to suit you from many reputable online stores - http://www.for-sale.co.uk/vaporizer-pen - and there are many different flavours of liquid to choose from too. Read more

Why write about technology?

Why write about technology?

I’ve been excited by it for as long as I can remember. Not just about cool gadgets that exist but also by the thought of where new developments are going to go in the future and how that will impact on our day to day lives. I love reading science fiction that has a firm basis in cutting edge science and uses the vast power of human imagination to speculate how society as a whole develops due to major scientific advances. From Jules Verne to Arthur C Clark, some of the greatest advances we have today have occurred as a result of the musings of a talented science fiction writer. Read more

I know I certainly couldn’t have. Read more

Getting Fit at Home

07/04/2016 Main

The Penny Board is so Much Fun. My girlfriend and I both decided to get one because she knew she’d be jealous of mine as soon as I got it. I’m having so much fun messing around on it but it’s made me realize that I’m just nowhere near as fit as I used to be and this has got me worried. The Penny board is motivating me to become active and it’s working for me but I’m not convinced about how many calories I can actually burn whilst I’m, essentially, playing around on it. I’m no Tony Hawk! Another issue is that the Penny Board is not so suitable for the winter months and it gets damn cold here in New York during the winter. Read more

Penny Boards

31/03/2016 Main

It’s Carl here and I’m back to talk about something a little bit different today. I’m often referred to as a big kid, especially by my girlfriend who has restricted my gaming to 2 hours per night. She wants me to engage in a hobby that means I spend less time lounging about and more time being active, which translates to “shed some of that belly flab you fat b*****d!” Read more

Air-con is King

22/01/2016 Main

Welcome back to the blog guys and sorry It’s been so long since I last posted an article. You know how it is after the Christmas period. I’ve had to go back to work which is never nice after two weeks off and then there’s the miserable weather which hasn’t particularly helped. I must confess though, I have had some free time on my hands and have basically spent it cooped-up in my bedroom or on the sofa in my living room, playing PS4 with the new games I picked up in the January sales. So, I don’t really have any excuse for not posting another article really, just the fact that I’ve been slobbing around play computer games. Read more

Bluetooth Headphones

Welcome back guys to my blog. Maybe you remember a few posts back where we were discussing Bluetooth speakers? Well, I’m currently in the market for some Bluetooth headphones for use when it’s a bit late and I don’t want to disturb people sleeping or for when I’m travelling to work on public transport. I’ve written a few quick write-ups based on the information I’ve found whilst searching the net. Here’s a few of my favourites which I’ll probably pick from once I’ve had a bit more time to think it through. Read more
