The FCC Rearranges The Field Goal Posts On The Internet Neutrality Field 

The idea of Internet neutrality in terms of access and speed has been an ongoing debate for a number of years, especially in the last two as a number of the big Internet service providers, or ISPs, have been curtailing the general flow of traffic through their systems with “pay to play” costing models.  

These models have essentially restructured Internet accounts, charging significantly more per month to those customers that draw down significantly more bandwidth than the average customers.

Barcode Art: Could We Be Seeing More Of This On Product Labels?

Did you say Barcode Art?

Everyone knows what barcodes are. They're on nearly every product we purchase, from bread, to antifreeze and even nappies. Many of us don’t even pay attention to them (until we get to the self-scan tills and can’t find them anywhere on the item being purchased). They pretty much look the same… right?

That is, until you see this. Yes. Barcode art. A transformative way to turn these useful series of lines into beautiful expressions of art. And what a way to create a talking point on nearly every single product sold.
