Build It BetterNovember 20, 2006

From 28th to 30th November, Enable are exhibiting at the IMS 2006 show. Come and see us on stand 364 at the London Olympia.

Bespoke Software. Because one size doesn’t fit all.

The orange logo that's a red hot opportunity

Build It BetterMarch 14, 2006

Click on any major news organisation’s homepage. From the BBC to Times Online. A bright orange RSS logo will almost certainly be lurking. Next time you see one, give it a click. It offers fresh opportunity for your business.

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. The reason nearly all news organisations highlight RSS is that it helps people stay in touch with stories of particular interest. Rather than having to surf around or keep coming back to websites for news, the viewer can be ’fed’ links to relevant stories as and when they appear. The headline appears like an email in a special window (your RSS reader), or as a bookmark in your browser (if supported) so that you can choose to click on it for the full story or come back to it later when it suits you.
