Three, the phone company, have an amazing deal at the moment. Pay £15 for a PAYG sim card, and you get loads of calls and texts, plus unlimited internet. This is an amazing deal, not matched in Australia and probably anywhere else. This is not a monthly plan, you can pay for just one month […]
Easyjet have been selling National Express tickets from the London Airports to the City for quite a while now. But since National Express have introduced their £8 deals per trip, Easyjet have been ripping off customers by charging them £10. They got me yesterday when flying back from Nice. Instead of buying the ticket on […]
I ended up missing my flight from Cannes, back to London. It means I had to stay in beautiful sunny Cannes, rather than flying back to the rain and clouds. Fortunately I had met a friendly girl that let me crash with her. Thanks Florence, you saved me. I also got to see a lot […]

It is quite common to have to display time information in your app, be it the current time, news feed’s creation date, scheduled meeting time or birthday reminders. However, not all of them are displayed the same way and may require different formatting. To do that with Objective-C for iPhone apps, NSDateFormatter is what we […]
A number of Art Galleries and Museums around London open up in the evenings and start serving drinks. A great way to meet interesting people, see Art work in an adult environment, and a fascinating drinks venue. I have only been to the Late at Tate events so far, hoping to make it to a […]
As a cynic whoose outlook has been validated by events for over forty years, I predict: In ten years, computers will be 128 times “Moore powerful.” However, Microsoft, now involved in world government (now simply called, “gummint”), has continued to develop, and use, higher and higher level languages to write the (only remaining legal) operating […]
