These tablet experiences suck

I love my tablet. Until I was given one a couple of years ago, I never thought I'd like tablets as much as I do now. But that's not to say there aren't a few things that annoy me - and it's not the fault of the device. Fair warning, if you're not interested in a self-indulgent venting of certain tablet design 'faux pas' then move on. Otherwise, let me enlighten you as to why it's time to put an end to these all-too-familiar scenarios.

A touchy subject

It's been nearly 10 years since Apple launched the first touch screen smartphone in 2007. Did you know however, that the first touch screen was actually invented in 1965? That's nearly fifty years ago to the day! Yet I wonder, would anybody have believed it, if told that by the year 2015, there'd be more touch-screen enabled smart phones and tablets, than human beings on the planet? Or by 2020, it is estimated that there will be 4.3 internet connected 'things' for every person?! That's something like 33 billion devices, with a hell of a lot of touch screens.

Recruiting in Tech: We’re doing it wrong

These days “average” performance just doesn't cut it. To deliver bleeding-edge solutions that differentiate us from our competitors we need bleeding-edge people. Yet when it comes to expansion and hiring new staff, we use age old techniques and science tells us they just don’t work.

End of passwords. Fingers crossed.

Google is trialling phone-only sign-in. No more remembering obscure passwords, this also should add extra layer of security.

A super-duper RadioButtonList helper

MVC comes with plenty of helpers, but often I need them to do more.

My first experience with Umbraco Forms

I've been developing Umbraco based systems for over 3 years now but have always been wary of giving clients access to build their own forms via the Content Management System.
