With the post-Christmas over-doing it of just about every last bad thing that can be overdone, comes January and the promises of a healthy start to a new year, which includes healthy eating and drinking, which then includes home-cooking and making things from vegetables and fruit. Which, of course, means blenders. But with just about every tech company putting out their variation on the blender, which one should you go for? We recommend one of the following three!

Simple design and easy to use, complete with five different speeds, a pulse mode, and a dedicated button just for crushing ice. Which will come in handy should you want to be making cocktails. Just because it’s January doesn’t mean you can’t be having a good time!

Perfect for those for whom space is limited, this hand blender can be stored away when not in use, which also comes with a crazy powerful motor to really get your desire for blending satisfied. Bosch also throw in a couple of handy beakers, should you make too much for one day’s consumption.

Instead of pulping your fruit and veg into oblivion, with the accompanying heat and whirling oxygen killing off a lot of the vitamins that you’ve been trying to smoothie into your glass into the first place, the NutriBullet uses a lower power setting and specialised blades that keep all the goodness intact, which is why food scientists (and every health nut you know) are singing the praises of this particular blender to high heaven.

Does Blackberry’s open letter have a return address?

Tomorrow, Blackberry will release a letter to media outletss worldwide. When I got news of this tonight, I stumbled mentally for a moment. I thought it reminiscent of the "There is life after Apple" Chiat/Day letter from Steve Jobs in the Wall Street Journal 25 years ago. For a minute I allowed techno-romance to gnaw at me, but only for a minute. Tomorrow's open missal from Blackberry reminds me more of a fake letter that appeared in Chinese newspaper, The Southern Metropolis Daily a couple of months ago, and then found it's way around China via the micro-blogging Weibo.

NASA Game Changing 3D Printing success really matters

Last night I tweeted a link to the Press Release from NASA regarding their success with  testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or as we say these days,  3D printing. What surprised me was the reaction I got via re-Tweets, messages and people just saying 'wow!'. I think what caught people's attention was the potential highlighted by the success in NASA's test, the potential for manufacturing and for business.

Social Media: quality always tops quantity

In recent years I have had the privilege to speak at a number of different events on Social Media. Typically the area of greatest interest has always been Facebook. The same question always pops up during the Q&A part - “I don’t have a budget for Facebook, how do I get to 100,000 fans?” To be fair, there is not one answer to this question for every industry but I will try to give you an answer that should set you on the right path.
