The Queen on Google Maps

So rightly deserved, her reign has seen our country and commonwealth emerge from the darkest days of the biggest war the world has ever seen.

Her people and country ravaged and bombed but she remained a noble example to aspire to and has the admiration of many of us.

In fact during WWII she even volunteered as an ambulance driver while the city of London was being bombed from the air.

See any public pageant where Her Majesty is present and you will see just how we hold her dear in our hearts.



When cameras were first being invented, that was a similar concern then – it was a major worry at the time.

The truth turned out to be the opposite.

It was a boom to the tourist industry as people came in droves to see for themselves what they had seen in photographs!

How to Make More Money? Stop wasting time!

What about the iPad- yep, just 5 years old but seems to have been here forever.

Facebook vs Google +

Its strange how people are so quick to condemn a free Google service.
I know, its all a bit of the David and Goliath syndrome.
Did anyone realise that last June Facebook changed- now you pay to reach your friends.
Google makes things easier and people are ringing the death bell….?

Deep Stereo Comes Your Way

Some of you may have seen the surreal images created entirely by Google’s AI or artificial intelligence – an algorithm based neural network was flying around the last few weeks, turning flat Twitter photos into dreamscapes that are the best end to drug dealing I have ever seen!

The traditional method of getting seen was to advertise in magazines, local and national- todays people when they see a paper Ad, first thing they are going to do is to “Google It” and if you are not on Google you don’t exist!
