Look, most of us know that working at Google is pretty cool. Not only do they take good care of their employees, they also have exciting game rooms, wonderful lunch menus and nap pods (!). However, working at Google is no joke – even if you get to take a nap. 

‘Googlers’ as they are affectionately known, work really, really hard. Developers, designers and software engineers work around the clock to bring us wonderful Google products.

This, however, did not sit well with one particular little girl, who was fed up with her dad working so much. So what did she do? The best thing you can do in these situations – write a letter to his employer, Google.  (more…)

SwiftKey has long been one of our favourite and most useful apps. Then in 2013 they brought us SwiftKey Flow, which combined the predictive text capabilities of SwiftKey with swipe typing on their keyboard, which made one handed typing a breeze. Now they have touted SwiftKey Flow Hard as the next step.

The company’s co-founder Ben Medlock states that in order for them to move into the future, sometimes you have to look to the past. That’s exactly what they have done here, and have developed a way to use swipe typing on desktop and laptop keyboards.

Ellen’s Oscars ‘selfie’ breaks Twitter

Published by on Mar 4th, 2014, No Comments


Ellen DeGeneres was widely approved by the public as a good choice for host of the Academy Awards of the weekend. She is widely popular and her quirky comedic ability is much sought after in the hosting stakes as the last couple of years have seen very negativity-driven comedy, with the likes of Ricky Gervais and Seth McFarlane.

On Sunday even Ellen decided to get off the stage and interact with the A-list stars in the audience and then (in what seems to be a Samsung ad, actually) took an ‘impulsive’ selfie and a bunch of the celebrities jumped into her shot on the Galaxy Note 3 she was carrying. (more…)

Netflix all but put the once massive video- and later DVD-rental chain out of business by offering its DVD-by-mail rental system at the end of the 90s. Then their streaming service revolutionised how Americans, and later Europeans, watches and consumed content.

So, after Amazon revealed the Prime Air it felt it deserved to let off some steam and have some fun. They have created a video taking a jab at the ecommerce company. Check out the trailer after the break: (more…)

Social ‘hashtag’ gets what it deserves (video)

Published by on Feb 21st, 2014, 1 Comment


The social phenomenon that is hashtags was meant to make it easier for people to find tweets or posts regarding a certain topic, but pop culture completely ruined it with people ‘hashtagging’ every single thought. Calling it mildly annoying might be an understatement. #irritatingashell

Jimmy Fallon has taken it upon himself to make a mockery of the hashtag and we think it is a great chuckle for anyone that has the same feelings about it. This time he has made the insert with Jonah Hill, but last year he made one with Justin Timberlake as well.
