Working for big American companies from little old New Zealand

I love where I live: Auckland. It’s consistently ranked as one of the best places to be. It’s also a great place to bring up a family with clean air, great schools and beaches never more than 10 minutes away. But when it comes to work it is a little far from Silicon Valley to […]

New office signage

It’s been eight months since we moved in to the new office space, but finally we got our signage up! I’m particularly proud of this one since I designed it, found a manufacturer who was prepared to try and build it and, once it was put up it actually looked as good as I imagined. […]

Now I’m not a fan of beating up your wife or neglecting your kids or any of the other alleged offenses, but I researched what little press feedback there was about the ‘show’ and it was all negative.

Two weeks of animation time. That’s an average of 23 seconds per day – pretty good if you ask me! I’m quite pleased with the result too.

Gastro-Sleuthing

I’ve always said Maccas French Fries are way way better than any other fast food fry. But now someone has worked out why – nd how you can reproduce McDonald’s fries in your own kitchen. I have neither a deep fryer, Russet potatoes or any device capable of blanching the fries and I also don’t […]

Facetime revolutionary?

When the 3 network came out in the UK a fair few years back now it came with video calling… anywhere. The iPhone brings this same feature (limited to wi-fi only) but given a new name it sounds like apple think this is a “magical” revolution. I’m an Apple fanboi. I make no pretenses otherwise. […]
