A cheap, fast and professional website creator for small business and creative types

So have you ever built your own website or even thought about putting one together? Website builders often offer huge, complicated behemoths of design that are not only hard to create but also cost a fair amount of money. Quite often they are so complicated that you end up hiring a professional design team to do it for you. This is fine for big business but, if you are a small business or a creative professional, that's often  not an option. Plebu is a 'software as a service' web design and website creator that makes it easy and cheap to quickly put together a professional website ...  More

Recruitment for the best software engineers

It's said that if you are the employer of a great software engineer it's best to try to nail them into a new contract before they've been with you for five years or so. One tends to find that if they haven't found what they are looking for in your business by then they will think about moving on. It's the nature of the beast. So if you are an employer looking to coax one of the great ones out of their soft, cosy and comfortable conditions it's rather difficult for obvious reasons. But how could you encourage and court them to come and talk to you privately and anonymously? You might be ...  More

Show your emotional side in your content hunt

The Internet is a weird evolving object that springs up more than a few surprises. People can be even weirder. If you have read any Malcolm Gladville you will be well aware of the organized chaos that we live in. Take social networks for example. I remember a friend telling me not long after Facebook's inception to "just sign up" and it wasn't that long before its reputation grew and the "Tipping Point" was reached. Now it is getting close to a billion users and everyone from cute Kentucky girls to Sherpas in Tibet seems to have an account. Add to that the phenomena of Twitter and, more ...  More

Read over 2,000 global newspapers from cover to cover

The way we get our news has changed dramatically over the last few years and it's likely to be only the beginning. Ten years ago most of us would have had the daily paper delivered to the door or would pick a copy up on the way to work but these days many have abandoned the paper chase to get their news experience directly from the Internet. But it's not the same is it? From reading snippets of articles on the net one doesn't get the full spectrum of news from around the globe. Yet it's getting harder to find good quality journalism unless you scour online newspapers from around the world. ...  More

Keep in touch with friends and colleagues in real time

When you think about it, Glassmap owes as much to the Starship Enterprise as it does to evolving geolocation technology. All this comprehensive GPS and communication application needs to complete it is a button that says "Beam me up Scotty" and it would fit nicely on Spock's utility belt. Glassmap goes under the title of a geolocation device but, in reality, it's way more than just that. Not only does it let you share your exact location with friends but there are also tools to share photos in real time, co-ordinate meetings, chat messaging and VoIP. In fact, pretty well everything you ...  More

Calm your fear of flying

When I flew to LA just after 9/11 so many people asked me if I was petrified at the thought of it. In truth, it was probably the safest time to fly. The fact is, it's much safer to fly than it is to drive and you've probably got a bigger chance of being struck by lightning than going down in a plane. But try telling that to the guy sitting next to you that's clutching the seat so tightly his fingers are turning white. Turbcast is an air travel application for iphone and ipad that delivers stone cold information to allay the fears of flying for even the most white knuckled of ...  More
