Favourite Affino Features

This project is the culmination of a year’s work (for the Graphics!), in some ways it could be said to be the culmination of Affino’s 15 years of development. We have long wanted an elegant means of showcasing the extensive Affino Features Set - and we have takled it a number of ways previously - trying to do a complete features listing (100’s of individual elements - now archived for being too large), and the much celebrates ’Periodic Table of Affino Elements’ -

Is B-Reel's intractive 3 LiveShop really the future of online retail?

These last few weeks have seen a lot of features about B-Reel’s excellent recent interactive touchscreen live sales assistant interface for Sweden’s 3 Mobile Phone Store. The new interface - aka ’3 LiveShop’ enables a sales assistant to present various options in the style of Tom Cruise in Minority Report. The touch screen interface allows the assistant to sweep and select with multiple touches and drag and drop pictures and text panels onto the interface. On the client

Do we really need Groupon?

Alongside many Brits, I have been encouraged to sign up to Groupon so as I don’t miss out on some amazing deal or stupidly pay over the odds for an essential product or service. I am already signed up to more specific discount sites / services like BrandAlley (mostly Fashion / Accessories / Homeware), Toptable (Restaurants) and Lastminute (Hotels / Travel / Excursions / Entertainment).

I am signed up on Groupon for ’London’ - but London is an enormous place, and all the offers

Why Big Shopping Malls need Smartphone Apps!

I was at the magnificient Westfield Mall, Shepherd’s Bush last night - which really is a most excellent cathedral to that most highly disciplined vocation of holistic retail.


Of course I grabbed a map on the way in, but the A3-folded-in-four-format was not particularly good for easy navigation around the mall - largely as your perspective and orientation changes so much - looking up and navigating via old school map is a little more complex than it should be.

World of Boutiques

Following on from my ’New Industrial Revolution’ article, which talks about everyone being able to design and manufacture their own industrial goods; i.e. the democratization of Manufacture; I now turn my focus to retail, where everyone can set up their own Boutique online.

Before I get into the definition of a Boutique, I would just like to reflect on a number of emerging trends, particularly in the area of fashion retail. In real-world shopping malls, some of you may have come

Today is Be Inspired by Iceland Day

Most people are aware of Iceland’s recent plight of financial meltdown and volcanic erruptions. The Eyjafjallajökull (Ey-ya-fja-dilla-yehrk-uhddle) erruption though is currently more likely to bring to mind flight cancellations and deferred holiday plans - rather than the panorama of the stark ethereal beauty of mother nature. For Iceland is a land of continuous and immense geological upheaval, it is a land of fire and ice, of ancient Nordic gods, enduring Sagas and mysterious hidden

Nordic Walking Spring / Summer Season

We’re well into Spring now and have been lucky to have experienced one of the warmest Aprils in decades. Of course the Winter Nordic Walking gear I recommended is a little over much for these balmy conditions - so I felt it was opportune to share with fellow enthusiasts, my top picks for the Spring / Summer season.I have been stopped by a fair number of people now over the last few weeks - everyone was most interested in where I got my ’sticks’ / poles, and whether Nordic Walki

Nordic Walking is My Fitness Heaven

Past ExerciseThe peak of my gym attendance occurred some years ago now, I managed to go 3-4 times a week for nearly 3 years straight, since then a lot less frequently. That favourite Gym was the North Devon Leisure Centre - and was situated on the top level with large windows overlooking a lovely, constantly changing river scene. I showered at home, and as such did not have to face up to my usual changing room hygiene phobia. In Iceland - they make you take your shoes off before entering such an
