iPhone annoyances

I’m annoyed by my iPhone’s headphones, I presume because I bought a phone, that the headphones included are designed to give the user a hands free device while driving, the problem is I’m in England and I have a right hand drive car. The headphones are clearly marked L and R to ensure I have the right in the right ear and the left in the left ear but the control device hangs beneath the right ear. I suspect that the control is designed to be used by the gear lever hand in the US not the mainstay steering wheel hand? If it’s designed to favour the right handed, then shame on Apple, why not have the control in the middle to cover both left and right and both sides of the Atlantic? It’s picky I know, but these things bug me.

A blagger’s guide to multimedia goes public!

After a while of adding the odd article here and there whenever I could I’ve finally got this site to a level that I think is worth visiting more than once.

So I’ve check the box that allows search engines to index it, and look forward to my first visitor. Is it you?

The page design is a bit rubbish, I really do intend to spend a little more time making it look special but that’s not the point. It’s the content that matters.

I’m not a trained graphic designer or developer. I never went to University or studied life drawing in Florence. I’m a regular bloke from Manchester, England with a background in Marketing who after not some considerable time and effort managed to blag his way into a career as a full-time employed multimedia web graphic designer, developer jack-of-all trades and master of everything. Well not quite.
The aim of this blog is to encourage people following a similar path to me, to keep going and to share a few observations and crumbs of wisdom picked up along the way.


My own private Sennheiser office

There is a debate raging in my office at the moment about headphones!
I use them as a tool to get into my own personal space for concentration and focus, especially when developing.
There are others who argue that they stilt conversation and make for an isolated and non-communicative team.
