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 […]
Have a read of this scenario from the labs at enterprise security specialist, Bromium: You walk into a coffee shop and take a seat. While waiting for your coffee, you take out your smartphone and start playing a game you downloaded the other day. Later, you go to work and check your email in the […]
For quite a while I have been searching for the ultimate MiFi device service. While I religiously use my EE 4G MiFi here in the UK, I’ve always had problems when I go abroad, whether it’s getting charged stupid rates or spending a silly amount of money buying local sims that don’t actually work.

(If you haven’t come across Sandvine, they are a leading provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for fixed and mobile operators.) Regarding Snapchat, the precise […]

I got a fascinating email from the team over at Campaign Monitor, the email transmission / newsletter system people. They’ve produced a hugely valuable report based on the 22 billion emails (and 1.8 billion opens) that were sent through their system across 2013.

I’m delighted to bring you this opinion piece from Peter Tanner, CEO of messaging specialists, Boomerang. The moment I read Peter’s text, I found myself nodding away with frustration. It’s a prime annoyance for me that more businesses haven’t implemented better, more efficient communications procedures between themselves and their employees, customers and suppliers. The height […]
