IoT & Wearables: Social Media

The IoT and wearables industries have the potential to disrupt a lot of markets. Many of the devices that we have already seen can completely change the way we interact with technology, after all. One particular area that will most likely be affected by the soon-to-come explosion of those industries is social media. Their ever-changing […]

Wearable Wednesday: EasyJet gets onboard with wearables

Wearables are one of those technologies that’s always on the verge of mainstream adoption, but yet is always still “just around the corner”.

Apps to Watch: Just Press Record

One of the most useful apps mysteriously missing from Apple Watch is a built-in voice recorder app. There is an iOS version that comes with every iPhone, so quite why Apple didn’t include one on Apple Watch is anyone’s guess.
