James Bond and my name in print

By | Blog | No Comments

I was fortunate enough to write an article for the Components In Electronics magazine last month, and I thought you might be interested in it. It’s actually an article on data security within the military, but it’s definitely relevant for anyone who needs their data to be secure. In the article, I touch on James Bond, CIKs and how secure…

Technological tomatoes

When I speak to people about Datakey products, what really brings them to life is examples of how others are using them. And often, the example is in a totally different industry, but by picturing how and why they’re used, it sets engineers minds racing, and gives them ideas about how they can use them in their systems. With spring…

By | Blog | No Comments

Have you come across Peter Diamandas? He’s the founder and chairman of the X Prize, and the man who made it possible for Stephen Hawking to experience zero gravity. Anyway, I’m a big fan of Peter. I’ve read his book – Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think – which I highly recommend, and I take the time to…

I’m still conducting my research, but here’s a summary of what I’ve learnt so far: Last year was…

Your sharpened saw

By | Blog, Uncategorized | No Comments

I was out of the office at a business event last week. And it was massively helpful. Every month or so, I like to take time out of the day-to-day to learn new strategies that’ll help me grow my business and rub shoulders with other business owners. It gives me new impetus to get things done. It makes me realise…

This one was pretty extreme

By | Blog | No Comments

Many of our customers test the Datakey industrial memory products in pretty extreme environments. And so do we. We’ve had it hit with hammers, tanks running it over, the list goes on.

We’ve had a super busy start to January already, which makes me really glad that I had some really great family time over the Christmas period. And now that both the kids are officially old enough to really enjoy all that comes with Santa Claus, the tree and the presents, everything is a lot more exciting in the Barrett household….

Please tell me I’m not alone

By | Blog | No Comments

Okay, I admit it. Every single time I go to put a USB stick in my computer, I try to put it in the wrong way. Please tell me I’m not alone?! I thought about this the other day while I was reading a really interesting article on USB on DesignNews.com, and I just thought I had to ask the…

Huge and concerning shortfall

By | Blog | No Comments

If you’ve come across Tomorrow’s Engineers Week, you’ll know it took place in November, a couple of weeks back. And it’s a great initiative, designed to ensure that both employers and educators engage young people in the world of engineering. What’s the point?
