20 Years Ago I Dreamed Of This Office….

If someone would have told me 20 years ago that I would have had an office with live racing, live greyhounds and the power of the internet I would have said you were mad!

I am lucky enough to have live greyhounds as well as horseracing and now fast internet!  It is heaven!

Live Pictures All Day Long!

However 20 years ago, or even 10, this would have looked like the bridge of the Starship Enterprise. The internet is a wonderful thing for punters. Not only live pictures but the ability to study form, watch past races and the alert system is a massive help for punters.

If you see a horse that you think is worth following next time you can simply put it in your tracker. The one I use is the ATR one, you get an email the night before! Really useful.

Another tool to use is an interface for Betfair, either GRUSS or BETANGEL. This allows you to do so much. I do not trade, which is what it was designed for but it allows you to use one touch bet placement and also allows you to GREEN UP at the touch of a button! I will write more about this in future blog posts.

The resources available to punters now is second to none. The best thing of all is the SMART PHONE. I have the iphone and with decent coverage, when you are out, £g or 4G, you can watch the racing live, on RACING UK and CHANNEL 4 or you can stream WILLIAM HILL RADIO. This is costly over the phone but the iphone app allows you to stream it FREE!

PORTABLE WIFI….

I use the ipad mini a lot and I recommend a MIFI. ‘MiFi units’, ‘Mi-Fis’ ‘MiFis’ or ‘MiFi dongles’ are compact, wireless devices that enable multiple users to share a single mobile broadband connection while they are on the go. I use THREE, it is excellent and fits in my pocket…

If the phone (O2) is not 3G or 4G then there is a good chance that three will have! When I am racing this is invaluable! So having a great office is one thing, but the office is now also in my pocket!

Technology, is brilliant for punters!!
