Let me first say I am quite enjoying my enforced experiment with the LG G3, LG’s newest flagship model. I like what they’ve done with the device. The operating platform is fcukng shIt. There we go. Let me further revise that statement. The power management of the operating platform is fcukng shIt. I mean, utter […]
I’ve got another question for you, dear reader. Do you have problems with the WiFi in your place of residence? If so, do you use the powerline/homeplug adapters to serve you WiFi via your electricity connection? We seem to have an array of dampening fields all around our house so I’ve got three different WiFi networks […]
I’ve got a challenge that’s been presented to me by a relative (I’m keeping this one as anonymous as possible). One of my relative’s parents is becoming increasingly infirm.

While I’m writing about the Amazon Fire Phone, here’s a survey conducted by Gorkana THIS morning (i.e. the day after the launch). Depending on how you read it, it’s not brilliant news. Let’s get into the guts of the release: Amazon has taken its first step into the mobile phone market and just unveiled its […]
At $649, the Amazon Fire Phone appears to be a really good piece of engineering and software design. It’s just too expensive to matter at the moment. This is a turning point to remember though. The ramifications of yesterday’s launch are likely to be seen in 2 or 3 years time. The current price point […]
What did executives across the wider mobile industry in the UK make of last night’s launch of the Amazon Fire Phone? I asked a series of executives from a wide variety of companies to give us their viewpoints. I also asked them to give us a one liner description on their company for a bit of […]
I needed a Fridge. A tall free-standing one. We’ve got some work going on in the kitchen but it’s going to be quite a while before that’s complete so I determined, with a bit of persuasion of my wife, that we should just order a big temporary fridge… that, when everything is all finished, we […]
Heh. I was just reading this post from Nick Summers over at The Next Web who’s reporting that Uber has seen a huge 850% increase in sign-up volume today.
