I read this morning that Marks and Spencer's Chief Executive, Marc Bolland is blaming a 8.1% fall in online trading on the company's new website. The BBC article that I read, described teething troubles with the website and said that existing customers were required to re-register on the new site and that there had been problems with site navigation.
Last month Richard compared the website performance of Manchester City and Manchester United. In a similar fashion to their early season win over their rivals, City romped to victory with their homepage rendering nearly three times faster than United’s. David Moyes thankfully wasn’t at fault, and Richard suggested that third party content was a major reason for United’s shortfall.
We are now into the final week of January and at the point where New Year’s resolutions are either continued or stopped. Like most, mine was to go to the gym more. Now, I can't say that I enjoy the gym much, as I prefer playing sports such as cricket and football. With this in mind, at the gym, I go by the mantra ‘looking the part to feel the part’ (some may say it’s ‘all the gear, no idea’). With my motivation starting to waver, I decided the only thing to keep me in the gym was buying some new sports ‘stash’.
