I made a classic mistake on Friday night when I was sorting out the new iPhones for myself and my wife. Two iPhone 6 devices arrived on Friday morning and then late into the evening I decided to get them setup. I backed up my wife’s iPhone 5S and then my own iPhone 5S. And […]

I really don’t have any time for the standard rubbish registration systems at receptions. I recognise the importance and the need for such a process. I’d just like it to be as elegant as possible. Enter Envoy. I really like the look of this. Check the service out at signwithenvoy.com.
I came across this rather interesting release from the team at ParcelHero detailing one of those critical issues that we don’t tend to consider much at all, especially when we’re busy obsessing over the precise arrival of our gorgeous new device. If you think about the average delivery guy making, let’s say, 50 deliveries a day on […]
You have to laugh. If you don’t, the only alternative is tears of utter despair. Have a read… It is understood that EE, O2 and Vodafone have been unable to agree on how Weve’s standard mobile wallet should operate since it was announced six months ago, however. They have now effectively scrapped the joint project, […]
The FT is reporting that it’s more or less game over for Phones 4U: Phones 4U, the British retailer founded by entrepreneur John Caudwell that has spent most of last decade in private equity hands, has gone into administration. The company, which is owned by London buyout house BC Partners and employs 5,596 people, said […]

I logged into the web version of Amazon yesterday and was greeted by this take over screen: It’s the promo for the UK version of the Amazon Fire Phone, exclusively available on O2. If you choose the lowest £13/month tariff (24-months) on the always helpful O2 Refresh plan, then the Fire Phone will cost £399. […]
Hello it’s Ewan here. Ahead of the upcoming Apple’s September 9th keynote, I’ve asked mobile commentator Roland B. to give us a look ahead and a bit of context. Over to you Roland… – – – – – Perhaps the most anticipated date in the mobile industry calendar, Apple’s September 9th event could also be […]
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 will return in time”). So I […]
I’m delighted to have received an in-depth Top 7 Apps submission from Neil Robertson, Senior Associate at top boutique PR firm FieldHouse Associates. Here’s a quick overview from their website: FieldHouse Associates was founded to service the technology, enterprise and investment ecosystem. This is PR with a business edge. We take media relations, copy writing, […]
The other weekend I needed a Woggle (Amazon link). For the uninitiated amongst us, a Woggle (sometimes referred to as a ‘Noodle’ too) is a long polystyrene tube that children (in particular) use to support themselves (and play with) whilst swimming. Our eldest (Archie, 4) is getting into swimming big time. He’s having lessons. They […]
This story is flying around the marketplace at the moment (and, incidentally, getting quite a lot of traditional banks in a bit of a panic): Hot on the heels of a report that Apple has inked a deal with American Express, a second report has stated that the company has also signed deals with Visa […]
