    15 September 2014, 4:30 pm by: Ewan

  • Live like a Jedi with the Reemo wrist mouse: Love it!

    3 September 2014, 4:51 pm by: Ewan

    Before I get to Reemo, I’d like to set the context. I really enjoyed Star Wars. I’m not a die-hard fan, but I really enjoyed it. I can quote much of the original movies more or less verbatim (I can tell you which movie features the line, “Your eyesight…

  • I’m done with Physical Shopping

    1 September 2014, 5:44 pm by: Ewan

  • Apple’s digital payments system: Amex, Visa & MasterCard

    1 September 2014, 8:37 am by: Ewan

    28 August 2014, 6:16 pm by: Ewan

    I’d like to say hello to JP, Social Media genius at Telefonica O2. He sent me a chocolate bar together with the slightly mysterious note you see above. As you can see on the wrapper, the text on the chocolate bar reads: This doesn’t have to last you two…

    28 August 2014, 4:59 pm by: Ewan

    I’ve got a new feature coming soon here at MIR. It’s called Top 7 Apps. I’m asking executives from around the industry (and beyond) to list out their top 7 mobile applications with a line or two about each. I chose 7 rather than 5 or 10 as I think that…

    12 August 2014, 7:42 am by: Ewan

    It’s that time again dear reader: Three UK’s CRM system has, as I predicted, chucked me back into the call queue for their sales team. The last time the calls began was back in May. I ignored them for a few days and eventually answered on May 14th (I…
  • It ges worse for Android: IBM uncovers Android banking vulnerability

    8 August 2014, 6:23 am by: Ewan

    The message for Android is increasingly bleak in the context of security. I really do wonder whether the average normob (“normal mobile user”) is beginning to form the view that ‘Android is insecure’. I don’t know if the message has penetrated widely…

  • Would anyone like to rent my LG G3 for a month?

    31 July 2014, 1:07 pm by: Ewan

    I think I should check out the new Nokia Lumia 930. It’s been a while since I gave Windows Phone some decent usage attention. I need to use the 930 for at least a month. So I’ve got to buy another phone. Yet again. I therefore don’t need the LG G3. Not…
