Need. This. Now.

Battery technology has lagged the advancement of the smartphone quite considerably. We are now so accustomed to charging our phones once or twice a day that we often forget the good old days of a week long battery charge.

While this technology doesn’t make the battery last longer, it does the next best thing and minimises charge time whilst minimising the impact to the environment by reducing how often we throw batteries away.

It has to be a good thing! Bring it on!

Next on the hit list was the interior lights….. gone is the yellow tinge after fitting LEDs.

I used these.

The end result is really nice, although the picture doesn’t really do it justice.

Next will be the foot well lights!

I couldn’t stand that horrible yellow tinge of the side (DRL) lights, so fitted some Polargs this morning.

They provide a much whiter light.

I bought these: http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/180712488934?txnId=1234476503008

Time to revive

It seems I have been rather busy of late…. who knew that life at Jaguar Land Rover could be so all-consuming?

That’s not a dig, just a fact. I am extremely busy. Would I have it any other way? Probably not! :)

Anyway, this blog has taken a very clear back seat (pun absolutely intended). I have a few posts in draft which I will dust off first but it’s time I took to the keyboard again.

Let’s see how it pans out!

The latest Pebble app release brings with it improved Bluetooth connection reliability.

That’s something I hope makes good inroads into the issues of connecting to Pebble after a shutdown.
