Using Apple Watch as a Business Leader

 By Mark Mason, Chairman of Mubaloo Group Much has been written about Apple Watch. Rather than going into whether this is a good device or not, let’s first start with why anyone would need notifications on their wrist. If, like me, the majority of your day is spent in meetings or using your phone or tablet as your primary computing device, you’ll know how important it is to manage your time efficiently. If, like me, you receive hundreds of emails...

BMW M235i Review

In the 80s if you wanted a fast 2 door BMW but couldn't afford or justify the M3, there would be a 325i Coupe on your drive, its front mounted 2.5L straight-6 punched 170 horses through the rear wheels in a package weighing the same as a modern day Mini Cooper. The 325i was a real driving machine that put a smile on your face every time you got behind the wheel; it had balanced but lively handling, made a...

Why Wearable Technology is Fuelling Data Addiction

By Ross MacIntyre, Head of Digital at DECIDE  In the 1970s, a press handout picture of Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak was published suggesting that the two may be about to make a breakthrough. Rich Travis of Sunshine Computer Company in Southern California reported that he had sold ten Apples in three weeks thanks to its inexpensive, complete, ready-to-run system. Writer Sheila (Clarke) Craven wrote what is believed to be the first article about the Apple Computer in '77, and the rest is history....

Why FutureLearn is an outstanding London Digital Innovation

By David Reilly I believe FutureLearn represents a new wave of London based digital innovations nurtured in London. It is classic British invention and it is free to everyone. Hurray! In short, the learning platform is producing the type of fully immersive digital experiences that are simply ground breaking and it is rightfully being shortlisted for awards, most recently for a Webby Award. In the past MOOC’s have attracted much hype and expectations particularly in the US but the role of...

Budget Summer Classics

By Will Robinson Around this time every year, as the knowledge that spring has well and truly sprung dawns upon of the capital, you may notice a few curious and interesting behavioural patterns emerge among London's general populous. These include the universal agreement that getting drunk on Pimms at two in the afternoon just because the sun is shining is universally encouraged, the customary grumbling of a disgruntled customer at the bloke who runs the Mr Whippy van about a 99...

Hyundai Genesis – Quick verdict

Every February & September I drive and chaperone supermodels from show to show for London Fashion Week. Hyundai have provided us (Storm Model Management and me) with their cars over the past couple of years, and last September I was lucky enough to have use a very special new car in their European line up - they sent me the first ever Genesis in Europe.  It was a real head turner, especially being on German plates.  I was, however, given a...

2015 smart ForFour review

Are you in the market for a small practical city car?  You're lucky, because today’s choice is bigger and better than ever.  These cars cost very little to buy, many cost nothing to tax and none have serious drinking problems, all the while retaining excellent residuals.  The now familiar smart ForTwo is about as compact as cars can get, but it’s still capable of venturing out of town and onto the motorway.  The main issue with the ForTwo, and the reason we had to sell our beloved car, was because it only offers two seats;  if you needed something for 3-4 people, a smart car simply wasn't an option. ...
