If you haven't got a mobile strategy, you may already be falling behind. And if you need to do something really exciting - like develop an app, please contact my good friend, Darren Lynch at Gourmet Pixel, (+44 (0)7732 505 881) - he's got a fabulous e-concierge application looking for a client! In just over a week his Christmas app has had 250,000 downloads. So you'd better hurry - this shop will be very busy in 2011. Tell Darren I sent you. I owe him a favour!
