Android L as it’s known is the latest incarnation of Google’s highly successful mobile operating system, which started development around 2007 mainly in response to Apple’s iOS (then […]

Nokia eyes a comeback with the N1 Android tablet

Nokia caused a stir this week with the revelation that it would return to the consumer hardware business with an all-new 7.9-inch Android tablet called the N1 which, it has to be said, bears a striking resemblance to Apple’s iPad Mini – even down to the milled aluminium, rounded corners, and the appearance of the volume buttons, speakers and […]

The worst technology failures of 2014

The end of 2014 will soon be upon us, and even though there is still more than a month left for some major newsworthy gaffes and missteps to happen in the world of technology and mobile, we thought it would be interesting to take an early look back on 2014’s most significant “technology failures”, and examine just where […]

App Gap - Main Pic

Does the “app gap” matter?

What is the app gap? Many people with a smartphone will have heard the words “app gap” when talking about the app stores from each of the major smartphone platforms.

Samsung reports huge drop in profits Last week Samsung announced its latest financial results, and it was not a pretty picture at all. In fact, it was so bad that in its Q3 2014 earnings release, Samsung Electronics reported its operating profits were 4.06 trillion won (£2.4 billion) which was a 60% drop over the previous year, while its mobile […]

Voice recognition – has it come of age?

“Hey Siri, wake me up at 7 a.m.”…that’s about all I use Apple’s Siri for at the moment, short of asking what song is currently playing (which always amazes me). It’s not that voice recognition on the iPhone is bad – most of the time it provides reliable and accurate information (when I’m in the UK; but abroad it’s another […]

How Apple’s device strategy is making an impact on the enterprise

Since the advent of B.Y.O.D (Bring Your Own Device) schemes and the success of the iPhone as both a consumer and business device, Apple has recognised the need to strengthen its portfolio of enterprise-friendly device management tools, productivity applications and not least its IT support.
