    28 May 2015, 6:45 am by: Jp_hero

    28 May 2015, 3:29 am by: Mike

    27 May 2015, 11:52 am by: Leigh Geary

  • IDC publishes another load of analyst prediction guff

    27 May 2015, 7:40 am by: Leigh Geary

    Here is the smartphone market share according to IDC. Have a look at that purple line. That’s Windows Phone. As you can see, for 3 years, it’s not really moved a great deal. I’m not going to say anything more about that. I wish Windows Phone was more…
  • What on earth are Google going to call the next Nexus?

    27 May 2015, 6:15 am by: Jp_hero

    Naming conventions are a great thing. Sony have the right idea, they have a few product ranges differentiated by a letter, ie E, M or Z. Then add a number on the end, ie M4, Z2 or E4 and that’s you sorted for the next 99 years along with the potential for 26…

  • Learning to print the perfect picture

    26 May 2015, 7:03 am by: Leigh Geary

    My main concerns, when snapping photos on my phone, is whether the photo is going to be backed up and just where it’ll be backed up to. Usually I store everything on an ever-filling storage card as I snap pictures randomly through the day. Those pictures,…

  • Galaxy S6 touring Madrid

    25 May 2015, 6:18 am by: Dan

  • Microsoft Band – Review

    25 May 2015, 2:29 am by: Garry Clark

    23 May 2015, 6:05 am by: Leigh Geary

    Here in Merry olde England it’s a Bank Holiday weekend. This, by law, means that everyone must either… a) Buy lots of items for the garden (perhaps even a barbeque even though it’s not warm enough). b) Go to the pub “for a quick half”, only to emerge…

    22 May 2015, 10:08 am by: Leigh Geary

    When you get “into” running a website and it gets a bit of traffic, you start hitting a problem. Paying for some web space isn’t enough. You need a virtual server, perhaps two or three, then when things get busier you’ll be looking at a full dedicated…
