Toby’s June news & views
- Sony launch Smart Watch
If you haven't experienced the idea of a Smart Watch yet then prepare yourself! It will keep you up to date with your Facebook and Twitter feeds, make calls through your wirelessly connected phone, and there's a little space dedicated for its non-primary function of telling the time. Smooth.
How do you actually make calls as well? It looks like you have to dial from the watch and then pick up and talk through your phone? Very handy.
-You either Cannes or you cannt
The brainchild of the ECD's at LBi, the cannt festival doesn't involve the sun of Cannes, but it might (with a little luck) involve the English Sun, and will most definitely include a series of events hosted by the top agencies in London. Check the website to keep up to speed with the going's on of the week.
I agree, the headline does make this sound slightly un-ethical but read the article and you'll find some little white lies that will enhance the overall validity of the research. For example, play dumb if asked how something works by saying 'I have never used this software before' and wait to see if your user can figure the problem out by their self.
I should also caveat by saying that the white lies are ok, just don't break the ethical guidelines set by the APA -http://bit.ly/5xnaEh
Two links for the price of one.
- 6 App's you don't want to miss
Mashable have kindly put together a short list of 6 apps you don't want to miss. All look interesting; however whilst the $79.99 OCD cure app might be something that you don't want to miss, I'm sure it's something that you can afford to miss!
- Coding hate of the week
Sorry MTV but this is a shocker! Can someone not even look round the lovely new Geordie Shore villa without suffering this? Click through the thumbnails and the site has to reload for every new picture. You think this would be solved by clicking 'play slideshow', but it still has to reload for every picture.
