Sometimes…well,most of the time, keeping up to date with daily news happenings, be it local, national or world wide is pretty damn depressing, disappointing and demotivating. There needs to be something out there that is more positive…and Microsoft Lumia have come to the rescue with the launch of their ‘Good News’ paper to inspire commuters in their ‘The Five to Nine’.
About time! The Five to Nine will demonstrate how we can use technology to work smarter and be more efficient. These days time is just as precious as making money, people are working longer hours, work is stressful so the time you get to escape and do something you enjoy is precious right?
