FRIDAYS AT UKFAST

Happy talk like a pirate day everyone! Quick question: Why are pirates called pirates? Because they arrr! Aaaaand back to business: this week we’ve had a Gmail hack and a rant about U2 (and how you can get their album off your iTunes); there’s also a scam going round you should know about, and we […]

TOO MUCH .CHOICE?

When I was a kid we used to get BBC1, ITV and C4, the latter of which was so fuzzy it made the characters in Friends look like human snowstorms – so I only used to watch things I really loved. Now I have Sky and Netflix and loads of choice – which, as an […]

DON’T LET THEM PULL A FAST ONE

We all know that feeling – you get an email from someone new and it’s all ‘Yay, someone other than my mum/gas provider/boss is emailing me’! And THEN you find out that email has given you a virus. Oh yes, it’s the gift that keeps on giving; but what it’s giving is grief! There’s currently […]

There are times when London can seem like the bleakest, most uncaring city in the world (it doesn’t even have chips and gravy, which seems to deeply upset every Mancunian I’ve ever met); but the uptake on the new .london gTLD proves that us Brits actually do love the concrete jungle that’s home to the […]

STAY ‘APPY, AVOID REJECTION

Oh rejection, why are you the worst?? We’ve all been there – unpublished articles you wrote, family holidays you weren’t invited on (don’t ask), the boy you fancied like mad in nursery school who went out with your best mate instead (thanks for nothing, Chris Smith*). Oh yes, rejection sucks. But if it’s your livelihood […]

IS MAGENTO THE ONE FOR YOU?

If you get about in the tech world, or have anything to do with ecommerce, then Magento is probably something you’ve come across. But if it just sounds like someone couldn’t spell X-Men’s ‘Magneto’, then the experts at our latest round table can tell you why it’s less ‘badass metal-wielding mutant’, and more a potentially […]
