Android revenue: less than you might think…

Recent statistics show that even though Android has a majority share of the global smartphone market, in terms of revenue it’s not quite as successful as you may think.

Who needs a landline telephone? 95% of UK households don’t

The home phone has had its day. The majority of UK households say they would not miss a landline telephone, preferring instead to use mobiles as their primary means of communication. The belief that a fixed line is essential is clearly an outdated idea. Landlines in business still have a place of course, and a physical line may be required for ADSL – but for […]

With the Nokia […]

5 things you might have missed during Apple’s iPhone event

  Apple held its highly anticipated iPhone event yesterday at the Flint Centre near San Francisco, finally unveiling new large-screened iPhones and, perhaps more importantly, a wearable called the Apple Watch.

Children with Woggles

I’m done with Physical Shopping

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.
