Google Streetview in the UK

Google have recenly launched ‘Street view’ for the UK! It looks as though here in London someone, or something has been watching us for some time!  It has ‘attack of the smart cars with cameras attached’ all over it. But it is quite a thing to behold. Here you can see where we are.

Unfortunately they took the picture before we got our door vinyl up! Sorry about that!

There are people left right and center complaining about concerns over individual privacy (see article from Digital Bulletin), perhaps they have a point. But for now it is here to stay! Well I mean if you are called Christine Boring, it’s going to be hard to have anyone take you seriously on a project such as this! So get on it and look up your own house!

Experiment #1: Media Mash

Pomegranate Media are announcing a new experiment into social media! We are currently in the lab getting out the bunsen burners, tweaking knobs and turning screws to create one monster of an experiment!

The aim of our experiment is to find out just how far we can push ourselves within the social media network. Using sites such as You Tube, Twitter, Facebook and the like we plan on promoting ourselves left right and centre.

Check back here soon for an update on our progress. Keep your eyes peeled and your ear to the ground… You might just see us out there in action!

Compare the Meerkat.com

This has to be one of the funniest adverts on TV at the moment and a very welcome relief from the dreary comparison site adverts that we’ve been subjected to in the past. For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, here is the link.

Also, if you’ve got a spare five minutes, it’s worth logging on to www.comparethemeerkat.com.

Too much fun to be had!

Do you twitter?
