Weekly News in Nelson Bays Region….PART II

Feb 28 2012

As I mentioned last week there’s ways, other than just reading here or my twitter feed,  that you can keep up to date with happenings in the Nelson bays region of New Zealand.

First up its the paper that heralds itself on “only good news reporting”, perhaps a first in newspaper publishing?

The Nelson Weekly (click link below for latest edition)

The Nelson Weekly is delivered free to householder letterboxes each week.

Not forgetting our southern cousins, next up for free public consumption is the Waimea Weekly,

The Waimea Weekly – click below for latest edition

actually a paper that was started before the Nelson Weekly….The Waimea Weekly was the original in the region that proudly proclaiming itself to be all about “good news.”

Enjoy your reading.

Who’s fault is this?

Who’s is responsible?

The lighting looks ok?

The angle looks right, and it seemed to have worked ok at the time of day the photos were taken?

how long would it have taken to remove the mess on that table bottom right of photo?

But I have to question the preparation undertaken before the photos were taken?

Weekly News in Nelson Bays Region….

Feb 23rd, 2012

Sometimes just reading a Newspaper in the age old format is easier than trying to do exactly the same online.

Every week in Nelson, Richmond and Motueka a free paper is produced and distributed to householder letterboxes.

If you want to Keep up to date with happenings, be they News, social or just public type issues, then you could do worse than catch up with these newspaper replicates online.

The Nelson Leader, published each Thursday

The Richmond (& Waimea) Leader, also published each Thursday

The Motueka Golden Bay News, again, published each Thursday.

A new species, the “Phablet”

Feb 2012

This month I think its becoming pretty apparent that the Samsung Note, and friends need a name.

Phablet” seems a mighty fine one, although a Google search shows up just 105,000 results when you plug that name in, its definitely going to grow, dare I say grow very fast!

For folks with dimensioned challenged fingers (hmm … like those of someone I know?) a phone, be it the iPhone, or a Samsung Galaxy 1 or 2 are just starting to approach what I would term “comfortable when it comes to typing an email / texting on them.

So someone in NZ who uses a gb of data at the min. in their day to day life per month….well I’d love to here from them. Better yet….I’d certainly love to here from anyone who is currently using one of these “monster phones.”

For Real Estate consultants an item like the Samsung Note could be a “godsend” enabling absolute mobility.

Perhaps I’m out of town for a few days, but with the click of a few buttons on my Android device I can instantly see….

what my add that is booked (in full colour resolution) for this weeks publication, on the cover of Fridays “Summit Weekly”, will present to the general public when they collect it, or the insert in the Nelson Mail, then let me tell you……….. that’s what I classify as a real helper.
