Unlock Net Zero

Fairly recent 2019 legislation has bound the UK to achieving Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2050 - as applied specifically on this occasion to the nature of domestic housing and buildings.


This makes for increased reliance on green energy sources - and in particular the use of solar panels and evolving carbon capture technologies. Projected costs for adapting the typical building for Carbon Neutral Emissions, range from circa £2,500 to an eye-watering £50,000 per home.

Third Party Cookies

We feel that it’s important for site owners to be fully prepared for the imminent end of Third Party Cookies - which are due to be phased out before the start of 2022 - or by the end of this year! This means turning over to First Party Data methods - that is to say fully Native Data Gathering and Analysis in place of all those soon to be expiring Third Party Plugins.

At the start of the Covid period, we determined that we would need something of a lighter touch to contrast that societal darkness. And so we set out to wholly revamp the website - to make it clearer, more streamlined, fresher, and more friendly - while rolling out various new technologies and functionalities. We greatly expanded the colour palette and introduced a number of more vibrant tones to meet that purpose.

We witnessed a number of paradigm shifts in 2020 on the road to the ending of 3rd Party Cookie support.


Apple in particular was highly active on the user security front - introducing default 3rd Party Cookie Blocking right across its software portfolio. iOS 14, iPadOS 14 and macOS Big Sur all ushered in a new age of user-centric protections - to help prevent third party exploits which happen all too frequently on the internet.

Film Release Highlights for 2021

2020 was obviously a highly disruptive year - both for the making of cinema, and showcasing the final product. Leading to Disney’s Mulan for instance being launched on the Disney+ platform versus an official cinema release.
