Watch out – it’s the round-up! And it’ll rot your teeth if you aren’t careful.

Well, it won’t, but it will fill your brain with so much fluffy, empty-calorie goodness that you won’t get any work done and will probably nip off at 4pm for an early pint.

25 old school websites for 25 years of the web

The web is 25 years old. Did you use it today? And yesterday? Wow, it’s really catching on.

Here are some old websites from 1994 to 1998, when the web was in full swing (or so we thought).

The social, digital and mobile map of Europe

With a population of 63m, the UK has 55m internet users, 36m Facebook users and 82m mobile subscriptions (which is 30% more than our actual population).

This makes the UK prime territory for digital marketers, but how do we compare with the rest of Europe?

We Are Social has published its Social, Digital and Mobile in Europe Report and it reveals an insight into how much the online world has penetrated our everyday lives.

In the UK, the average time that internet users spend on the internet each day is four hours and six minutes, that’s just through a desktop or laptop computer.

Mobile internet penetration for the UK currently stands at 62% of the total population, with those users currently accessing mobile internet for an average of one hour and 34 minutes.

Let’s compare those figures to the rest of Europe.

Nest Protect night time

Mobile marketing lessons from the Nest Labs success story

Nest Labs meteoric rise to $3.2bn acquisition by Google in three years has been powered by three principles you can apply to your mobile marketing.

Nest Labs is a Silicon Valley based disruptor dedicated to 'transforming people’s lives' with connected devices for the home that are both rational and emotional.

Founded by Tony Faddell, ex-Apple iPod lead inventor, Nest has been acquired by Google for $3.2bn. It has launched two products to date: the Next Learning thermostat and Nest Protect smoke alarm.

The smoke detector has to be one of the most ugly, unloved, annoying (but important) household devices we have around us. And Nest reinvented it…

The Nest Protect is a smart smoke detector and the principles of its design, user interface and concept speaks to three key best practices in Mobile development.

It’s a case study in considered care and empathy. They’ve produced a wonderful, differentiated product in a commoditized market that justifies its price premium.
