If anyone can save the beleaguered social media outlet, Myspace, surely its pop star turned actor Justin Timberlake!
The way in which we function in our day to day lives has changed dramatically with the influence and introduction of increasingly sophisticated technology to the point where it is barely recognisable to a decade ago. As a society we are continually 'plugged in' so whether it is checking into Facebook on our mobile phones or collecting your emails via your iPad the way we travel, work and socialise is continually being documented.
The internet is currently based on IPv4 but what is Ipv4? Well in short, IPv4 was established in the 1970's and is a pool of around 4.3 Billion IP addresses. However with the introduction of technology which allows us to be continually 'plugged in' such as smart phones, ipods and iPads there are fears IPv4 will not be able to cope with this increasing demand.

We recently missed out on a project because our price wasn't fixed. The potential client said "Due to the other quote I received giving a fixed and set price, I've chosen that company as yours being open ended with hourly rates, I was worried this could severely mount up and way exceed budget."
I was reading a well known forum this week. In the SEO section there's thread after thread promoting and asking about link spamming techniques. There's everything from software that automatically creates profiles on forums to offers of a 1000 PR5 links for thirty bob and a fried fish.
It's 23:00 on Saturday 14th November and I just noticed Google.co.uk changed. It's removed the search button and it's using a moo tools type effect to fade in the menu items when you mouse over the page.
I read an article or PR piece in a local (piss poor) business magazine supplement by an alleged SEO Specialist. He stated there weren't many people in the IT field who specialised in SEO and due to the nature of their work what they do is shrouded in mystery.
