  1. Well done on the award!

    Although, I gotta say I was a little confused with Computer Weekly’s categorisations.
    Judging from the description, the Company/Corporate SME category was to “showcase the best official blogs from SMEs that keep customers, suppliers and the rest of the world up to date with a company’s developments” I just couldn’t quite understand how a gadget/tech review blog fit that description. Something that Computer Weekly maybe needs to review for next year.

    Still, the public voted on this blog out of all in the category, so congrats and all the best. Keep up the good work!
