Barratt chief executive is addicted to his iPad, and particularly loves the tunes he gets from the Napster app

Mark Clare

What is your favourite website?

Times newspapers - great graphics. So much easier than trying to wrestle with a paper copy

What is your worst digital habit?

Checking out the very latest apps for my iPad, downloading them and then mystifying colleagues.


Blackberry because of the keypad and the latest model has a touch screen as well.

Are you into social networking?

Not really but we’re starting to look at yammer type applications in the business

Are you on Twitter?

The company is (@barrattplc) but personally, no.

What is your favourite app?

Sky Go

What is your preferred means of communication?

I spend a lot of my time out in the business at divisional offices and on site visits - nothing beats face to face discussions. For more formal communications it’s still e mail.

What did you last buy online?

A wind and weather sensor for my boat.

PC or Mac?

Everything is Mac in my world. Even my work windows system runs on my partitioned Mac

Most played tunes from iTunes/Spotify?

Anything by Adelle and Coldplay linked into my Napster iPad app or my wireless Sonos system at home. Still can’t get over how easy it is to have access to over a million tunes anywhere in the world on my iPad!
