How to create a double-deck logo in Logojoy

Logojoy is an "AI-powered logo maker" that's a joy to use - in fact, I used it to create the 'Technically Product' logo you can see on this site. But it isn't obvious how to make a double-deck logo in Logojoy, something I needed to do for Technically Product. Wait, what's a double-deck logo? A […]

How many tabs have I got open in Safari on my iPhone?

The answer is a rather shocking 190 tabs. How do I know this? Press and hold the 'tabs' button in mobile Safari and it will give you a count: Hat tip to @swyx (Shawn Swyx Wang) on Twitter for telling the world how to find this out - I've been an iPhone user for years […]

Prioritising projects? Think about the RETURN

So here's a useful mnemonic to help prioritise tasks or projects. Think about the RETURN: R: Resource E: Effort T: Time U: Urgency N: Necessity (OK, there should really be another 'R' in there but I'll let that slide.

LinkedIn Groups to receive another overhaul in attempt to boost engagement

I set up my first LinkedIn Group back in 2010, for an employer. In the early days it was easy to grow groups - there was even a CSV upload function enabling you to mass invite users. I remember we added 177 members the day we discovered that! For the past few years though, growing […]
