Hi! I’m Alex Jenkins. Welcome to my portal – my blog. If you want to read something about the IT industry, and the view of the IT world through my experience as an IT professional, then this is the place to be.

I’m interested in the terrific changes that are coming out on a daily basis, and what this blog is my quirky and offbeat take on what’s happening. This may range from a straight talk on the IT industry, to weird little stories that catch my attention now and then, and what you may be interested in, too.

Take a look, and if you’re interested as much as I am in the strange, esoteric world of IT, you might like to subscribe!

An End of An Era Updated?

30 Sep 2016

You know when you’ve reached the end of an era: Cadbury’s stop making the crème egg; birds decide that trees are passes and BlackBerry call and an end to mobile phones. Yes, it’s that time. The Canadian company which helped to bring in the smartphone nearly twenty years ago has decided that their operations are going to switch – and phones no longer hold the valued place they once did.

In the second quarter of this year, BlackBerry phones only sold 400,000 units – a tiny drop in what was once a B

A Cloudy Forecast is Good News

23 Sep 2016

For the everyday small-to-medium sized company, there are limits on what you can do in the case of a data disaster.

Read it and Weep

6 Jun 2016

You must have read it – you know – the comments from the FaceBook friend you may or may not know: ‘I drank 14 pints of vodka and drove home in an ice-cream van’, or ‘I flew to Hong Kong without a plane and passport’, or even ‘I’m dating my cat’.

These are examples of the weird and wonderful world of social media; where people are not so much people, but folk heroes in their own lunchtime. While this may be funny, and entertaining, the reality is that this kind of exposure can make you virtually u

Have you been swiped?

1 Jun 2016

A few years ago, you would have been surprised by the promise of web browsing becoming a virtually mobile pursuit. After all, the mobiles you were using were extremely primitive. Equally, today, are you concerned about the security of your smartphone?

You’re not. The figures prove it: if you’re anywhere near average, it just doesn’t come up on your radar.

And yet, criminals are always looking for the next ride that they can leverage from tech – it’s always been that way – and probably always will.

Living with a Bluey

8 May 2016

Bluer than a Scandinavian night of TV, roll mop herrings, and something to wash them down that sounds something like ‘Skull’, a ‘Windows-10-Blue-Screen-of-Death’, is a night never to forget.

You were just getting ready to watch the latest pirated edition of Game of Thrones, tucked your chair into its usual slouched position, and had enough snacks within arms-reach to feed a colony of squirrels through a very long and arduous winter.
