EE Osprey 4G MiFi Review

If you’ve been reading my blog then you know that I recently moved into a new build house. Despite having broadband on order and due for an installation only days after moving in due to infrastructure issues on the site i still don’t have any internet connection three months later. This has lead to desperate action. I’ve been researching different ways to provide WIFI throughout the house and narrowed it down to the following:

  • Tethering using an existing mobile phone – I already get unlimited mobile data through my Three contract however tethering is not included in my plan. Three do provide tethering as an add on however the allowance is tiny and I’m not sure how many devices can be hooked up at any one time
  • Buying a PAYG phone with a tethering facility – I’ve looked into buying a second phone on a pay as you go contract with tethering and a decent data allowance. There aren’t any!
  • Buying a 3/4G dongle – My original idea was to buy a 4G dongle and set up internet sharing across this single connection. This is feasible but 4G dongles don’t really like multiple streams of data which means multiple users would make this slow.

With no great solution in place I all but despaired

Technorati Top 100 Resurrected

Over the past 10 years Technorati had compiled and maintained an excellent list of the top websites in the world. A few months ago they deleted this section which has resulted in the loss of a massive resource for the digital marketing & SEO community. In an effort to make sure all of their great work isn’t lost to the world I’ve decided to use archive.org to resurrect the Technorati top 100 directory listing.

Over time i will complete the task of resurrecting all of the other categories

Harron Homes Tiverton/Windsor & Snagging New Builds

This post is going to be amended as we progress through buying our Tiverton/Windsor from Harron Homes. For the record this is the first time I’ve moved home, having bought my current house 15 years ago straight out of university. Needless to say a lot has changed.

Disclaimer: Apart from my buying a new build home from Harron Homes I am in no way affiliated with their marketing. This is my personal experience and thoughts of the buying process and not part of some SEO campaign (tho I’d

I predict that there’s going to be a rush on JQuery elements around the interactivity described in Google’s Material Design ethos. This page contains a running list of Javascript effects and tools needed to replicate the elements shown in Google’s design framework.

Button Feedback


Part of the Material Design ethos involves adding a ripple effect or ‘ping’ to buttons. MIT has just published a JQuery demo that shows this effect to its fullest.

There’s no doubt about it that Android L and Google’s new ‘Material Design’ ethos is the most exciting thing to happen over the past few weeks.
