Using technology for good is something that brands must be focused on in 2019.

By avoiding intrusive advertising and the overuse of digital signage, brands can not only survive the retail-digital-revolution, but lead the charge.

Using creative screens with attractive, value added, relevant content will be highlighted in this great display at The National Retail Federation show in New York City.

What do I believe is Google's greatest product? (An internal conversation with myself).
  • Me: The Google home!
  • Also Me: No that is so millennial, I need to think of something better.
  • Me: But with the Google home you can control your whole house! You can change your lights, create mood lighting, play music and also talk to Google because you have no real friends to talk to.
  • Also Me: Well that is just sad, I think you need to get out more.
  • Me: Well I think you need to keep up with the times.
I always feel like somebody’s watching me..

When reflecting on digital ethics in digital media in particular data tracking and surveillance there are a few points that need to be discussed and addressed. Is our privacy really be invaded and is there a right to be concerned? Or is it now just an everyday part of our lives and is something that we all have become used to?  

The lyric, “I always feel like somebody’s watching me, and I have no privacy” is perhaps a good starting point for this topic as this one line, in particular, raises some good questions in relation to the issue of digital ethics (Rockwell, 1984). In fact, just the other day while I was scrolling through Facebook I happened to stumble upon an advertisement for some fancy ladder that apparently made life easier when only just minutes before an advertisement had played on television for the exact same item. Coincidence? I think not.

It wasn’t until I completed the digital traces task that I started to get a little bit of insight into exactly what was being tracked and what information of mine was being shared and stored. The biggest eye-opener was finding out the activity that Google keeps track of and how they even track the usage of your Android devices. In an article written by The New York Times, the writer delves deeper into the abyss that is Google’s tracking and information storing. We as a society have become reliant on technology and we thrive off having everything we could want at our fingertips, but when does it become too much? You can say that you delete anything you don’t want people seeing or that you are cyber-safe but in the article, they raise a good point by stating, “What does it mean to delete something from Google? Is it just hidden from plain sight or actually expunged?” (Chen, 2018). This question is an interesting concept to reflect on because the saying always goes, once something is on the world wide web/internet it is there forever.

When looking at digital ethics one must also consider the positives to data tracking and surveillance, we now get personalised advertisements and all these interesting things pop on our Facebooks, Instagrams, Twitters and so on and this is all thanks to data tracking and surveillance. Another point to consider is that certain companies and agencies need to retain certain metadata and information for purposes like personalised bills for telecommunications or even to retain information that may help assist in stopping illegal or criminal activities.

So, is data tracking and surveillance good or bad and is it something we can avoid? What would our lives be like if companies and agencies did not do what they did? These questions have a multitude of answers but in this day and age, it seems that data tracking and surveillance is an unavoidable part of our everyday lives.

Why PHP, Why Now?

/*To use the PHP you need to know some basic codes/usage from HTML and CSS, otherwise is going to be a little bit difficult to understand PHP***

PHP is a server-side scripting language that has been around since 1997 and has grown into a modern and performant tool for building websites and applications.

Allows execution of code in line with our HTML markup simple reading and processing of files and images Request and Response processing with forms. High performance scales easily.

  • Starting From Scratch

Example of a simple HTML file:

  • How it works?


Unlike HTML we cannot just open a PHP file in a browser to test it, PHP needs to be compiled via a PHP interpreter. These are run on a web server we must place our files on a web server, and then view the file via a web browser. PHP files are saved with the extension .php.

The web browser must point to the server, not to the physical location of the file.

We need to have access to a web server. Common web server types include Apache and Windows Servers. We can run a server locally on our own machine (recommended), popular servers include WAMP (Windows), MAMP (Mac OS X).


  • What is a Variable?

Variables are containers used to temporarily store values. These values can be numbers, text, or more complex data. Think of variables as little boxes in your computer’s memory. You can label these boxes, and then store different things in them, later on, you can retrieve this info, change it or store something else in it.

We can reference information without having to remember what that information is. All we need to know is the name of the variable / where it is stored.

Variables also make our programs infinitely more flexible. Think of your computer as a big calculator. We could write a program for a calculator that said: 4 + 2 =

Every time we ran the calculator we’d get the same result. There would be no way to change the values in the sum, meaning it would be a calculator that could only do one equation. Considering what 4 + 2 actually does… It adds two numbers. What we want in some way of writing that very same program but without knowing what numbers would be added. But what if we gave them Substitute names, such as x and y. We could then re-write our programme as x + y.

We can create as many variables as we like. To do this we declare a variable by naming it, assigning it a value.
