29-Jun-12 Football, Tennis, Technology and Cakes

In Blog, Consumerisation, Euro 2012, Technology, Wimbledon on June 29, 2012 at 5:55 am

After last nights shock at Wimbledon, we still have two British players in the third round of Wimbledon.

Whilst Murray must be pleased at how the Nadal eviction opens up his part of the draw, Heather Watson will have to play at her very best to have any prospect of making the illustrious second week (at the time of publishing, she appears to be going out).

In terms of Euro 2012, Spain and Italy will replay their earlier group stage game on Sunday and what an interesting proposition this is.

Although I am not convinced it is going to be a free flowing game of football, I do believe that Italy have enough talent and style to challenge the current European and World champions, hence why I am tipping them to win 2-0.

Of course the whole England debate resurfaces! Were England that bad or were Italy that good, as they certainly made the German team look ordinary last night and we were led to believe they were a very good team?

On the technology front today, this was an interesting device recommended to me by one of my work colleagues, Mike Humphries.

The Raspberry PI appears to be an intriguing product considering its price with a number of different drivers for being used. Let me know if you’ve already made an investment in this and or anything similar and how you are using it, as I’m interested to see whether this is something for the average consumer?

Happy birthday to the iPhone today. Can you believe it is 5 years old? I wonder what your favourite app is after all these years? I bet it is a game?

Speaking of which, Google’s new Chrome browser for iOS has stormed the iTunes download charts – hitting the top spot for free apps worldwide!

This article in the Register comes after Google claimed that Chrome was the world’s most popular browser, doubling its number of users in the past year from 160 million to 310 million. Personally I still like IE on Windows and Safari on iOS, but I am old school!

To close the day, I had to judge a cake competition at work today. Now I know what being a director is really about!

Tomorrow I am managing our IT team at our annual SThree tournament. This years event is at Wembley. I have a feeling this could be our year under the influence of the arch! Then again, our team has an average older age of about 15 years, so I could be wrong!

Enjoy your weekends!
