It has been bothering me for a while, the fact that whenever I ping someone with a Typepad blog the trackback doesn’t show. I asked the venerable Ben Hamilton, owner of DynamicWebHosting (the very kind hosts of this very humble blog) to see if he could shed any light on why I could trackback to […]

Not content with annoying the majority of the tech-savvy (and not so tech savvy) western world, even Japan now hates Sony. No, not the much loved (well, by me at any rate) English pop band of the 1980s, but the country and its folk. According to informed sources at podcastingnews.com, Japan Today is calling Apple’s […]
