Mobile Tech Addicts New Logo

Mobile Tech Addicts Logo High Res As I am sure you have noticed the site has been going through some improvements recently and we have just had our logo completed. I am very happy to say that it has turned out way better than I had imagined and full credit to J Doss for his excellent work. A few weeks ago I had never even crossed paths with J but thanks to the power of Mobility Today and Twitter we have become good friends, he showed me some work he had done for someone else totally by accident and as soon as I saw it I knew he was the guy to help me out with the logo.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to J for all the hard work he has put in to help us out here at mobile tech addicts and there are still a lot more improvements to come in the future to make mobile tech addicts a site you will hopefully want to visit again and again and leave comments and take part in the blog community we are trying to build.

Once again thank you to J and all who visit the blog, if anyone wants to contact J to discuss any graphic design work or blog design you can reach him via twitter at www.twitter.com/jcjdoss

UK workers heading back to the office

image Research from Microsoft reports that less than half of UK companies are interested in letting staff work remotely, a drop of 10 per cent since last year, as companies become more concerned about their future.

The research polled 1000 companies, of which 13 per cent admitted that any kind of remote working was actively discouraged and only 10 per cent of staff feel they have the freedom to work remotely.

This used to be known as "home working" or "tele-working", but in these days of Windows Mobile and small, cheap computers Microsoft would like us to use the term "mobile working" or, if absolutely necessary, "remote working".
