In the past, as an adult, I would wake up on the morning of my birthday to a “happy birthday” from my wife and children, a call from my parents and a few presents. I may get a card from aunties and uncles and a few close friends and people at work would say “happy birthday” in passing. Now, with… Read more →
A month ago we lost the remote control to the Sky TV box. It was panic stations at first, but with a bit of coaching I showed my wife how to use the Playstation and Apple TV box to watch TV shows. A month on and not only have we given up looking but we’ve decided as a family we… Read more →
It has been a business model for cable and satellite for years, even newspapers and magazines have tried it – bundling content and services together with other things. Read more →
My shift patterns have changed recently – meaning that instead of starting at midday and finishing at 8pm every day – I’ve had the “pleasure” of starting at 7am. I don’t drive and so to get to work for 7am I need to catch a bus at 6:40am – the bus stop is right next to the beach. Read more →
I present a new music show on BBC Radio Jersey every Saturday from 12-2pm – the show features music from Jersey including live sessions and recorded tunes.

The weekend kicks off on Saturday when I present a two hour live radio show from one of the smaller stages at… Read more →
First there was the Facebook iPhone app, and lets be honest it isn’t the greatest feat into application engineering. It is clunky, it crashes, it forgets things or shows you the wrong things and is generally not very good. Read more →
The BBC has been gradually updating its mobile website over the past few months, bringing it more in line with the web version of the site, using responsive design. If you look at the new mobile site you will feel as at home with the design and structure as you would if you were to look at the web version… Read more →
The dream home entertainment device is one that has live television, on demand movies, the ability to record, on demand tv from all major broadcasters and an easy to use interface.
I now have three out of five from my Sky+HD box thanks to Sky Anytime +
But it is a clunker of an interface and a seemingly random programme selection policy.
Despite all that it does make a big difference having the on demand content, especially movies, on the same box I get my TV from.
In fact it was the addition of anytime to the box that helped me decide against Netflix or LoveFilm.
I still use my PS3 for iPlayer and I use my apple tv for watching YouTube and stuff on my mac though. So I am still a long way away from the one dream device.
