Have you tried graze? If you haven't heard of it graze is a snack delivery service. They can send you healthy snacks to your home or workplace in a handy letterbox shaped box which is posted to you.  When it arrives it will be quite a talking point! The snacks on offer are natural and healthy, but what would make people or them when they are so used to buying food from a shop?

Well graze has reached craze levels in just 4 years (sorry that's an awful pun!), and I believe that it's for two reasons: Firstly they send you four quality and healthy snacks in each box, but its a surprise until you open the box (or get the 'your graze box is on it's way' email). And everybody loves a surprise. Secondly, and most importantly, they market this service with a fantastic website. It all starts with a simple but effective logo:

The graze website has a super easy sign up procedure so you can get straight into exploring their products. They will send you four products in each graze box but you can rate products to govern how often you get particular snacks. There are four levels to rate them and it's really intuitive and interactive. The website splits the products up into handy categories so it's really quick to find products you like and hit "love it"! The service is easy to use and flexible.

If you are on the move and want to access graze from your mobile, then you are in for a treat. Their mobile formatted site work's seamlessly on the iPhone. The page is correctly formatted for a small screen with buttons which are large enough to press comfortably. The clean and clear UI reflects the desktop site, is very responsive, and gives you all the same options. The mobile site is so good that I actually signed up on the mobile site, and started rating the snacks too.

So what's it like to get a graze box? Here's a quick picture of my first graze box:

Google Maps is Epic

Have you ever sat down and thought about Google Earth? Well it's rather ambitious, even for one of the largest technology companies in the world, to map the whole world. And yeah, they are trying to map the whole world, with detailed maps, satellite images, street view, local businesses and turn-by-turn navigation. And then to offer it to anyone with internet access... for free. Google has changed the way millions of us use maps.

This video from Google explains where the Google Maps/Google Earth service is going and a bit about the history of the service. Google's mapping service during the Katrina Hurricane disaster is just one way that digital maps have changed the world.
