James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

Music From The Middle East.

There is a lot going on in this part of the world, the Middle East, and all that seems to make the news is death, destruction and conflict. OK, sure there is a bit of coverage of the good side of the Middle East, which is truth be told most of the region, but that […]

A Look at TechTalk on Nightline!

Here is a look at what we did on TechTalk on DubaiEye 103.8 FM this week.     Andrew Thomas from DigitalNexa.comĀ and I sat down and had a great conversation about tech stuff and tech news. This week we had a chance to review 2 Samsung items and talk Google, SnapChat and more. I loved […]

Make a Job?
