Unless you are absolutely loaded or extremely jammy, most Londoners don't have a handy garden to light up a BBQ when the sun starts shining. And since cooking on BBQs is banned in most central London parks, it leaves millions of people with a serious dilemma: where to grill a burger with halloumi on sunny weekends?So at Savoo we have researched the top green spaces where it is legal to BBQ in London (and even made you some useful maps!).IslingtonGood old Islington. Not only is the borough home
Recently, the Google co-founder told of what could only be described as an "Orwelian horror story of mass proportions" by fellow internet users. The claim was that other big companies, such as Apple and Facebook, were taking, or trying to take, the internet into their own hands. How much of this is true? Well, according to recent events, it's pretty much
all true and it applies not only to Apple and Facebook but to all the world's
superpowers. I mean, who can forget SOPA and all of that nonsense? Yes, that counts in the
"trying to rule the internet" category.
What does this mean for the average internet savvy saver like you or I?
Well, it could possibly be a disaster of epic proportions--or slightly
smaller less significant proportions. Imagine the internet but with a
subscription fee for different parts. Not like Xbox live but a
subscription for going to Amazon or for searching on Google.
Possibly even a little ticket booth on the side of your computer with
an annoying gnome who asks for ID when you go on to any unlisted
Well, that's Easter done for another year; the four day weekend just flies by, doesn't it? But on return to work on Tuesday morning I was scanning the papers and I saw research that's been conducted by Carphone Warehouse into the cost of mobile phones in the UK and the long and short of it is that we are losing a staggering £5 billion a year.
The research went into more detail saying that we could all save as much
as £194 a year if we just spent a few carefully planned minutes doing
some research into what the best deal is for us as individuals. Of the
£5 billion extra charges, £174 million comes from charges for accessing
data from the internet via a network. Outrageous, surely?
The world wide web is host to roughly one gazillion computer-tonnes of
information (that's what information is measured in right?) and word on
the internet is that Apple has 'accidentally' leaked some details about
the new iPad to the public. Surely what has been shown is enough to get
everyone pumped for a completely new revolutionary device filled with
lots of neat gadgets that is completely worth the extra £100 or so in
comparison to the older iPads? Well... almost.
Don't get me wrong Apple fans, the information given so far has been
pretty good. A faster processor, higher resolution screen and the
installation of Siri isn't something to scoff at but to a student it
may not be enough to warrant the cost.
Though we're not quite yet into December, it's probably about time to start thinking about what gifts you're going to pick up for your friends and family. If you're anything like most other people, coming up with presents for everyone in your life is probably an unnecessarily difficult task. At least, it is for me somewhere near 90% of the time.
But, if you've got a tech nerd in your life, then you're in luck. For the next couple of weeks, I'll be putting together lists of the hottest products in gaming and tech for every budget. This week, you'll find some of the best things you can buy for £50 and under. It might be a bit hard finding products that fall within this range because, let's face it, gadgets are an expensive hobby. Still, if you know where to look, you'll find plenty of products that any tech geek would be glad to have.
A merchant like HP will not only have seasonal deals (like bank holidays) but will also offer free delivery on orders as low as £15, and has just started offering cashback at certain times on certain products – well worth checking out.
