Design: The worst thing about the New 3DS XL power button, and how Nintendo could fix it
This week I decided to take the plunge on Nintendo’s New 3DS XL, and I love it! But there’s one small problem: the power button is in precisely the wrong place, and how it works is about the least user-friendly it could be. The position is on the lower right front edge. It’s very close […]
CatPig Studios change the icon for Radium
Internet radio app Radium 3 originally launched with the stupidest icon possible – a chocolate heart. They’ve finally seen sense and changed it!

MGMT’s new album a week early on Rdio
Just got an email from Rdio promoting their exclusive access to the new album by MGMT, along with a really pretty trippy video experience that ties in with the music, called the OPTIMISER. You’ll need to log in to Rdio in your browser or set up a free account and as you watch the trippy crab-headed dancer beckon you into the 1990s CG vortex you can glance down and watch the avatars of other Rdio users float along the timeline as they watch too. Which is nice 🙂
‘Previously, On Arrested Development’ updated with Season 4
NPR’s brilliant resource for Arrested Development fans – Previously, On Arrested Development – has been updated (probably ages ago but I only just realised) with all the gags from Season 4. If you haven’t already heard about this, it’s a cool cross-referenced online ‘encyclopaedia’ of the vast range of running jokes on the once-cancelled-now-resurrected comedy […]
Michael Degusta questions David Lowery’s Pandora royalty claims, is partly misleading, partly bang-on
Michael Degusta does some maths (with an ‘s’ please) and determines that Pandora actually paid $1,300 for a million plays of David Lowery’s track, and that Lowery took more like $230. However, Lowery’s complaint was solely about songwriting royalties, which Degusta confusingly ignores.
Does it really matter if Jim Carrey changed his mind about Kick Ass 2?
When Jim Carrey changed his mind about his performance in Kick Ass 2 the internet erupted, and mostly not in a good way. I don’t see the problem – Sandy Hook had a profound effect on many people and it’s not like he’s pulled his performance. So why is producer Mark Millar “baffled”?
Creation, consumption & the ‘post-PC world’
I am getting frustrated with continuing arguments over whether the iPad, or tablets in general, are capable of ‘content creation’ or whether they are only good for ‘content consumption’; and what ‘post-PC world’ even means when PCs are still the most used device in professional computing. The whole “is it any good for content creation?” […]
moo.com: a tale of excellent customer service
When was the last time you were blown away by amazing customer service, and who was it? For me it was yesterday, and Moo.com. It’s the start of the year and I’m planning to take my event and fine art photography business up a notch, so my website is down for a redesign and I’m […]
Buying my images as prints, licensing, and all that stuff
I don’t sell that many prints, but I’d love to sell more. Perhaps you’d like to buy one?
