My blog on BBC

My very own blog was on the BBC for a short fraction of time! It’s on the CLICK programme, a show about technology and computers and this particular story was about the evolution of mobile phones and how we can browse the net on the new iphone by Apple. 

This is the link:

It is the whole programme that is available until this Friday 18th July and you can have a look at the show by clicking on the WATCH NOW link on the top right part of the screen. The feature is by Dan Simmons and appears in the first ten minutes of the show and one of the blogs they scroll through on the iphone is mine.

But I have also been without internet, let alone a broadband connection for 10 months! And I survived! How? Well I was doing the online work at computers elsewhere. In the library, in the gym, at internet cafes and so on. It is interesting to see how you adjust and become forced to limit your internet usage and instead use that time more wisely.

I now have internet at home, since a few days back and one of the first things I do as soon as I get the chance is to check emails, myspace, facebook, wordpress, links, online news, online music and it never ends!

I’ve become addicted to the internet again, but knowing that I managed to survive without it for a year will help me break that habit…. I think
