The QR code is about to take over the world

I've been saying for a while now that, when the general populace finally get their heads around the concept of QR codes, they will take over the world. They are the perfect vehicle to advertise product on smartphones and, in the blink of an eye, you can open a website, find prices and reviews, launch videos, show product information, buy merchandise or simply be entertained and find coupons. Scanlife is the global leader in providing cloud-based mobile solutions that bring products and information to life and introduce this all-in-one, lightning fast barcode scanner and QR code reader ...  More

The safest way to avoid parking tickets

If there's one thing that's guaranteed to put a motorist in a foul mood for the day, it's the parking fine. To be fined hundreds of dollars for simply parking your car for five minutes longer that it should be is, to be quite honest, rather pathetic. To my mind, councils should be putting more of our tax dollars into building car parks and improving public transport than hiring thousands of resolute parking officers to slap a ticket on your car. The fact is, our cities are overcrowded and there are more cars on the roads these days than ever before. If you have no off street parking where ...  More

When you want to share your hellish day...

We all have bad days from time to time but sometimes they are difficult to put into words. Sure, you can tell your friends that you woke up with a bad headache and the cat had thrown up in the kitchen and you missed the train to work but it does seem like a bit of a whinge when you see that on your favorite social network first thing in the morning. As the old saying goes...a picture tells a thousand words. Hellfie is a photo sharing app that turns into a social network for those moments when only a picture can truly convey what a dreadful day you've been having.   The Oxford ...  More

Character building for 10-14 year olds using goals, rewards and consequences

We often hear talk about kids today having a much easier life than we had and how good and moral behavior seems to have gone out of the window. Of course, that isn't true for all children but, as our lives have got busier and more complicated, it's probably safe to say that a strict regimen of manners, discipline and maybe even moral standard has slipped away a little over the years. Many of us spend more time haranguing and arguing with our kids than we do in guiding them into, what is, a very competitive and harsh world. To address this problem, developer and parent of four Todd Duplain ...  More

See the planet Earth from a completely new perspective

I'm not sure what it is but we all seem to be completely fascinated with anything to do with outer space. I guess the romance started when Russian astronaut Yuri Gagarin became the first person in space and was cemented into our cerebrum when Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon. The views of earth that were taken from up there were truly breathtaking and we've been in love with those images ever since. There have been plenty of sky and space apps that have tried to recapture those moment but very few have come close to making us gasp the way that Elevation Earth does. This beautiful ...  More

A fully portable autism aid for when you are on the go

According to Wikipedia, Autism is defined as ' a disorder of neural development characterized by impaired social interaction and verbal and non-verbal communication and by restricted, repetitive or stereotypical behavior.' Sufferers, more often than not young children, regularly have trouble understanding concepts that can generally only be solved using pictures to back up vocabulary and diligent parents will spend hours at home setting up image cards to help kids understand better, the world that they live in. A year or so back, an Italian developer - aided by a team of ...  More

A toolkit that musicians can keep in their pocket

I think it's safe to assume that we all regard Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters as a pretty good drummer, right?  After graduating through the early days of grunge with Nirvana and forming his own band, he is now regarded with near superstar status and has been seen behind the drum kit for artists as diverse as Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Queens Of The Stone Age and Tom Petty as well as his own offshoot band, Them Crooked Vultures. However, despite this wealth of experience, Grohl was still taken aback when producer Butch Vig asked him to drum along to a metronome to keep correct time ...  More
