Is £399 still too much for the Amazon Fire Phone?

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

Our eldest (Archie, 4) is getting into swimming big time. He’s having lessons. They […]

Order your O2 phone by 10pm, get it next day!

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 years. Just like a phone. Get […]

What are your top 7 apps?

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 will push each individual […]
