Paul Brislen joins Vaughn Davis talking apps of the week.

Ransomware! It’s like Tupperware but isn’t sold on the party plan

This malware denies the legitimate users’ access to their server or files unless ransom is paid.… or why you should always register all the domains

Starts like the .com but then predictably, switches to an impacting parody around immigrant detention- nice bit of social activism. It will be interesting to see how long it lasts and what Trump has to say about it…

Ikea or Death!

It can be difficult to tell the difference between IKEA furniture and death metal bands.

So while we’re still talking about whether and when IKEA will ever launch in New Zealand, here’s an educational quiz to distinguish between Akercocke and Klubbo.

Classic game of the week: 2048

It’s like Candy Crush, but with numbers…

 “Addictive, interesting, fun, simple and beautiful”, Vaughn describes.

It’s free on all platforms- a great contrast to the razzle dazzle monetisation of similar but commercial ‘Two Dots’.

The Uber mobi site- For when the app craps its pants

Very handy and full-featured guides accessed through installing a desktop shortcut.
