    Podcast 255 – The Cancer Edition

    Podcast 255 – The Cancer Edition

    No flashy intro on this one. No smartphone news. It’s all a bit serious I’m afraid.

    Cancer. It’s not a nice thing to talk about and it’s not something I’d ever imagine doing a podcast about, but since the last Coolsmartphone Podcast (in July!) I basically very nearly died.

    Here, then, is my story and how I went to a completely normal Sunday morning to being told, only a week later, that I had hours to live.

    Don’t worry though, because there’s a lot more to this – it’s a story of hope and the how the utterly amazing NHS brought me back to planet Earth. There’s a number of lessons along the way.

    Oh, and if you have a bit of cash floating about – do donate to the Blood Cancer UK for all the hard work they do.

    Also a MASSIVE thank-you again to the utterly amazing NHS staff who have taken care of me throughout all this.

    Podcast 254 – Blimey! Remember these?

    Podcast 254 – Blimey! Remember these?

    “Sporadic” seems to be the word for these podcasts. If you’ve listened to some of them then you might be aware that they’re usually recorded in the car as it’s the only free time I have. However, these are not normal times. These are very strange times and that “podcast I recorded the other week” was actually nearly 3 months ago.

    Here, then, is my mini ramble about COVID-19, Huawei, Honor and the app installation methods needed on these phones. More a-coming guys! More a-coming..

    Podcast 252 – Coronavirus Lockdown Biscuit Special

    Podcast 252 – Coronavirus Lockdown Biscuit Special

    Normally I record these podcasts whilst driving to and from work. However, the world has turned upside down of late and I’m instead sitting at home eating far too many biscuits. It’s all a bit weird isn’t it?



    The coronavirus has changed things so much, and despite the fact that sitting at home is a lot better than being in a hospital bed, we’re all having an unexpected amount of time on our hands. This is why we started the “Home Active” feature, and in this special Lockdown Podcast, I’m sat in my kitchen looking at the various options available to keep your boredom at bay.

    I just can’t really help with those home haircuts sadly.

    Also, if you’re around next Tuesday evening, I’ll be doing an exclusive podcast with Paul O’Brien. Tune in for that one – we’ll have more details closer to the time.

    Podcast 251 – Sky TV and Mobile World Congress

    Podcast 251 – Sky TV and Mobile World Congress

    Yes, we’re back – the podcast has returned! We should have a big bumper news package after Mobile World Congress in Barcelona but, as you know, that went in the bin due to coronavirus outbreak.

    In this episode we cover that and the impact it’ll have on the people who were going to attend. What about all those who invested so much to get there?

    Also, I talk a bit more about leaving Sky, coming back and then leaving again. There seems to be a lot of interest in this at the moment as Sky TV have whacked up their prices quite a bit.

    More to come, and another podcast will be online shortly, but do get in touch with me on Twitter or via our contact form.

    Podcast 250 – My bottom looks like a chewed orange

    Podcast 250 – My bottom looks like a chewed orange

    It’s been a huge two months since the last podcast. What happened? Well, normally I record these podcasts whilst driving and, just recently I’ve had a distinct lack of car.

    Instead I’ve done the commute on my bike. It helped with the preparation for that mad bike ride I did last week, but I did get a sore bottom.

    In episode 250..
