So, for most of this year, I’ve had an iPad on loan from the House, so that I could share in the iPad experience, and better support them. Now that the year, and my traineeship, is nearly over, I have to hand it back and I’m left with a few questions: Was the iPad actually any good? Did I actually use it? Am I going to miss it?

So, we got through the hectic deployment of all the iPads, netbooks and notebooks. After all the hours of blood, sweat and tears, the unboxing and reboxing, the late nights and the phone calls, they’re all out. Now we just have to support them all. Continue Reading
So, I started my traineeship a few weeks ago, and everything seems to be going pretty ok so far. It’s been pretty intense and overwhelming at times, but that’s because I’ve walked straight into the middle of a mammoth rollout of new devices. Continue Reading
