Buy a Google Nexus 7 in the UK – FAIL

Buy a Google Nexus 7 in the UK

Come on Google! You know I love you and you know I reside in the UK. But your Nexus 7 adverting campaign on google.co.uk today is a big fat, frustrating fail for me... Excitedly I clicked your link to pre-order 2 x Nexus 7 Tablets.. However at the shopping cart the image of the charger is of a USA 2-pin 110 Volt charger and not a UK 3 pin plug charger... So I telephoned support and asked if I would receive a USA version or a UK version and the customer service agent I spoke to could not give me a definitive answer!! So I cancelled my order.. I want to buy 2 x Google Nexus 7 Tablets … [Read more...]

Don’t take my word for it: Matt Warman of The Telegraph said: EU cookie law ‘will cost businesses £10billion’ New regulations on internet cookies which come into force on 26 May will cost UK businesses £10billion, researchers have claimed. John Naughton of the … [Read more...]

Is your website ready for the EU Cookie Law?

Are you ready for the EU Cookie Law?

The EU Cookie Law came in to effect in 2011 but the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) decided it was fair to give website owners one year to find solutions and implement the rules. The deadline for implementation is the 26TH of May 2012; After this date, websites which do not comply with the law could be fined up to a whopping £500,000.00 – Ouch!! In simple terms, the new rules require websites to get permission from their visitors before placing any cookies on their computers. Permission must be informed and CLEARLY sought, which means you have to ask visitors outright if you … [Read more...]

Do we need a website in the Social Media age?

Building a Social Network for Business

I still have a few business contacts who tell me that they do not have or need a website because they have Facebook and or other Social Media Platforms as their free online resources. Wise or Wasteful? My answer to the "Do businesses need a website?" question is unequivocal. Yes, businesses do need a website because the only constant on the internet is the internet. I am sure that people will call me biased because my company is a website design and development company, but my motives are clear. Every business needs a website because a website is the only place on the internet where … [Read more...]
