USB Laptop Light – Better Than Nothing

Posted: 12th August 2013 by icraigt in Technology

I bought a light that plugs into the USB port on the Chromebook/laptop.  It was a £2 / $3 affair off eBay which I bought for those odd times when I’m trying to work on the Chromebook and I can’t / won’t have a mains lamp or light on. In short…… it’s crap. The output […]

I’m into the Google eco system in a big way. Although a long term Apple fan, I have always enjoyed the Google eco system, making the final jump from iOS to Android early this year with the sale of my 4S and the subsequent purchase of the Nexus 4. I’m so glad I jumped ship. […]

This is great news! One of the reasons I bought Pebble was the promised Runkeeper support. Not the only reason but a significant one. Just need my Pebble now!

Sticking with the colour Pebble, despite my impatience

I’ve been contemplating reverting back to a black Pebble watch in order to get it sooner but have talked myself back into waiting patiently. I really think the colour Pebble options will help differentiate it from, date I say it, something more 80s Casio 🙂 I have to admit I’m getting quite impatient though.

Been playing around with the new Tumblr app and really like it. I’ve no real intention of maintaining a Tumblr based blog but I had to give it a try. I do use the Tumblr blog as a means to display my Instagram posts though.

Reviewing my online accounts

Posted: 25th March 2013 by icraigt in Technology

I think I’m finally settling on which online services I want to continue using and keeping up to date. A long time (4 years) Twitter user, I can’t quite let go so have started to pick up my presence on there again after a fairly prolonged absence. It’s not what it used to be, not […]

Still looking forward to the Pebble watch

Posted: 17th February 2013 by icraigt in Technology

I recently shared a Google Plus post by Vincent Nguyen which essentially called out the Pebble watch as a $5 watch made in China. That saddened me a little and, at least for a while, lowered my expectations of the watch (I was an early backer and hope to have my Pebble delivered soon). However, […]

Time to move on

After years on what I believe was ones of the best blogging platforms, today the inevitable was announced.  Posterous will be closing down on the 30th of April. It’s such a shame and very saddening that those behind the service sold out to Twitter. This is one of many services that have canned to the […]
