Who knew a bird could solve such a proplem?

Downtime knows that your desk, as is ours, will be strewn with objects, many of which are precariously propped up. Basically our desk resembles a giant game of Jenga.

Sometimes, just sometimes, your boss shouting and spitting in your face from approximately 0.06cm may not be the thing to give you that much needed motivational boost you have been waiting for. 


In fact, insults and threats could soon be on the way out. Don't...

Okay, you caught Downtime. We sexed up the headline a bit, Snapchat isn't "officially" a sexting app, it is a real-time picture chatting app that offers time protection.

Not sticking to your New Year’s resolution? That’ll be a fiver please.

We all do it, or rather attempt to. No chocolates for three months, starting a diet and probably the most common, joining a gym. I am, of course, talking about New Year's resolutions.


If you hadn't already realised, and I hate myself for typing this, "there's now an app for...
