We have been spoilt for the last two days, blue skies and no rain. But it is really cold, which is expected for this time of year. Today calls for me to take another picture for this blog post. I am thinking about popping out at lunch time and going up to Douglas Head, it looks amazing when the sun is out.
Someone I have been talking about a lot about recently on this blog is Ian F. Now he just opened a new Instagram account, @ayeartofitness – Give Ian a follow and join in with his goal to become fit and lose weight. Nice one, my friend! I look forward to following you on your journey!
If there is one social network I have a keen eye on its Snapchat. They are currently rolling out a major update of their app, but its founder is the one to keep an eye on. Who is Evan Spiegel? He created Snapchat whilst at Stanford University studying product design, alongside Bobby Murphy and Reggie Brown. He has written an article which is well worth a read.
HOW MUCH LIFE IS LEFT IN LIVE TV?
It’s interesting to see that the BBC is going to be hosting a lot of box sets this Christmas. It makes sense as they have the platform and infrastructure they need to complete with the likes of Netflix and Sky over this festive season. You’ll be able to catch up on shows like: ‘Peaky Blinders, Taboo & Wolf Hall. If you have been watching Blue Planet II, some good news is that the original Blue Planet will be on the iPlayer soon, along with Planet Earth, Frozen Planet and last year’s Planet Earth II. This brings me to the point of; how many people will be watching live TV this festive season? I think the only live TV I will consume is the New Years countdown, just so I know that I hit 2018 on time.
One of favourite sources of tech news comes from ‘Wired’ they have such fantastic in depth articles and this is one of them. When Hawking speaks we should pay attention! He answers questions about the anti-science movement, the president of the United States; I can’t even type his name, the digital duopoly of Facebook and Google and what scientific research should be pursued most urgently.
