By | November 8th, 2012|Categories: Mobile apps|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Curiosity - I hope it didn't kill the cat My son just showed me a Yogscast video about a new application on the iPhone that has been created by Peter Molyneux at 22cans - and has already taken the world by storm.  The servers have already collapsed under the stress of the popularity of this game. 22cans call it an experiment or a competition. Curiosity the cube When you first open the application it just says - Are you curious ! Its simple but its so exciting!!!!!!  Why is Curiosity so exciting? The aim of the game to click madly at the blocks or cubelets on a GIANT rotating cube to destroy them  all with everyone else that has the application at the same time to see what is inside the box ...... CRAZY .... gaming gone mad. Everyone that has the application is chipping away at the same box, some people are creating pictures, text messages and even QR codes while they chip away at the side of the box... This website shows some of the creations - many aren't very tasteful so don't look if [...]

Syrinx Za – a small business using Social media

By | October 31st, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , |

  Credit webtreats.mysitemyway.com   After my post "Why aren't all SME's using Social Media"  I have been in many discussions  about small businesses on social media, such as why do they need to be? Why do small businesses need social media? This is what they need to ask themselves.  Its said that maybe small business do not have the budget to be everywhere all of the time but they can have a presence and they need to have one.   Let me put it this way if a business are promoting a product that women who are mothers might buy for instance, look at the figures - a study from eMarketer showed that this year 28 million mums will use social networks! Syrinx ZA are a company that know this, they know that on social networks they are not just a website or an advert, here they can be personal and build strong relationships and networks.  Syrinx ZA are available to offer advice and answer any questions about skincare  eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions on all the major networks. They [...]

By | October 20th, 2012|Categories: Tips and Tricks|Tags: , , , , , , |

How do I remove the Ask toolbar from Google Chrome I'm not sure how I got this darn thing, but I have been downloading a few different drawing packages so I'm assuming I allowed it entry from something there. What was happening is that every time I put a word in the address bar (omnibox) - whereas normally it would bring up Google search - this annoying Ask search thing would come up. Look what happens when I type in Walk Off The Earth in the address bar......   <-- see my review there - Great Band Useless!! These are Asksupports instructions that didn't work for me but they might for you. To remove the Ask Tool Bar from Chrome - In an open Chrome browser, click on the Wrench In the top right-hand corner of the browser window. - Hover over Tools In the menu that appears and click on Extensions. - Locate the Ask extension and click the Remove button next to it. - Click Uninstall In the box that appears. - Close and re-open your browser.To reset your Chrome homepage, [...]

  How to change your Twitter Header Photo 2016 I've noticed people heading over to this page, so its time for a 2016 UPDATE Its so much simpler now. Click your own name to open up your page fully and at the top you will see your cover picture - underneath it says EDIT PROFILE When you click this it lets you change your cover or header photo, your profile picture, your name and your bio.   Just click change your header photo - upload your image and save changes.  The best size for the Twitter header photo is 1263 x 421 Although twitter recommends 1500 x 500 it come out too large and twitter allows you to adjust it but for me, it just never works. If you haven't updated your twitter, then you may still be able to use the instructions below for 2015.   ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   More changes on Twitter, what next ? As you probably know Twitter has made some changes, see here if not -> Twitter announces new profile pages and iPad app -  You can now [...]

Blank screen on Nokia 6700 Fix

By | October 9th, 2011|Categories: Tips and Tricks|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Recently we had a problem with a Nokia 6700 mobile phone, the problem was a blank or black screen with a back light. After searching the internet we could not find out what the problem was - so I decided to share this with you as we found out the solution. None of the buttons seemed to do anything, I asked some of my Nokia friends who suggested the 3 finger reset which actually you need 4 fingers for, as you also have to turn the phone on.  This solution seemed to make the phone make a noise, sometimes the start up noise and sometimes just a beep but still nothing on the screen, it was just dead. We suddenly realised that we hadn't tried to take a call with the phone, so we called it and it rang, we were able to answer the phone and talk on it.  This made us assume that the phone could be still ok but it was actually a screen fault. So we ordered a screen from ebay  - "NEW LCD SCREEN DISPLAY [...]

Wow!  You've finally succumbed to signing up to Twitter.com  I knew you would - even though you said you never would but maybe you think it all looks very boring, too complicated, and no-one is talking to you. Yes, its really different to Facebook.  Well. don't be put off by that, it does take a little while to set up and get going. First of all, its a bit pointless doing your first tweet right away.... "Hello Twitter I'm here"        without any followers, as no one can see it yet. (Well apart from any stalkers you may have searching on Google) First things first you need to  -  Create your Profile Page. On the right you see your Twitter name, click that and then click settings Account Tab Fill in all of your account details, Tick boxes - I wouldn't advise [...]
