Apple Watches for developers – too much stock?

Regular readers of Common’s blog commentary will note we’ve been fairly vocal about Apple Watch in recent months. Whilst we’ve expressed our uncertainty about the immediate success of the product, we still eagerly pre-ordered a couple, keen to see what all the fuss is about.

Thanks #Apple – #watch this space but don’t hold your breath for a speedy delivery ow.ly/2bt22z #c #kickstarter #retail #ios

Debenhams, we’ve got an idea for you

Common’s managing director Simon Howship shares some thoughts from the team’s Yorkshire development studio, regarding an idea for retail giant Debenhams.

Mobile messages dominate the media

Google hit the headlines this week when the internet giant warned SMEs about changes to its algorithms. The move means organisations with only desktop websites will experience weaker performance in the search engine listings.

The highly anticipated/much debated #AppleWatch has been released today. Here’s what @commonagency thought long ago…commonagency.com/news/2015/03/a…
