We have a new company name - we are now called Core 13

Published Monday, March 22, 2010 by Malcolm Hollingsworth

Yes you read that right - we have a new company name, Core 13. Do not worry the name is the only thing that has changed; ownership, location and quality of work all remain the same as they ever have.

Why did we change the name?

We have decided to change our company name because the name eShotz makes people only think of email marketing - which was great when that was all we did. These days the majority of our business comes from web site design, web site development and reselling website services.

We are of course continuing to provide email marketing services as one of our core products. The service we offer is superbly simple, inexpensive and a superb way to stimulate your existing clients and convert potential clients into real ones.

Will an Apple Tablet be Launched Jan 27th 2010

Published Tuesday, January 26, 2010 by Malcolm Hollingsworth
Apple Event Invite - Come see our latest creation

Almost two years ago I posted an article giving my thoughts on the expected Apple Tablet launch. Well it did not happen two years ago, but it looks like it might happen tomorrow.

We are very hopeful that this device will be announced tomorrow as we expect it to become a very important platform for applications. The increased screen size will allow more information on the screen at the same time which will greatly enhance the user experience beyond that of the iPhone which is already very positive.

There are still no hard facts as to what the device will include, what size or cost, but other than that I still think everything the previous post suggested will hold true.

We shall let you know if Apple does announce a tablet and what they will call it on Thursday.

Published Monday, November 23, 2009 by Malcolm Hollingsworth

We use a Drobo to keep all out data safe - so should you

I know the idea of backups and keeping things safe is boring and can also seem daunting, but it is a modern necessity.

Last year we were looking for a backup solution and came across the Drobo, a nice looking black box that seemed to do what we wanted and more.

The Drobo is the simplest device of its kind I have ever seen or used. You plug it into your computer using FireWire, USB or optionally connect it to your network and then give it any two drives you have - switch on and your ready.
