It Might Be Time To (Really) Wave Nokia Goodbye

Microsoft is apparently moving its Lumia phones to a new home. Reports have been insistingly suggesting that the software maker will kill off the Nokia and Windows Phone brands this holiday season. Things are beginning to look more serious, as Microsoft has now started to move Nokia.com to Microsoft.com. The plan? To prepare and launch a whole new Microsoft Mobile Devices site (rumored to go live today). However, this switch will come in stages, ...

Treading on the Competition: Jabra’s Solemate Review

When we were handed Jabra’s Solemate family of Bluetooth speakers for us to review, we couldn’t but remember Jawbone's Jambox - the last standalone Bluetooth speaker we tested - as we still can recall, it did not really impress. But things are different with the Solemates: they have a distinct, footwear-inspired design with extremely high quality materials that immediately give a durable "rugged" feel.

Back to the Future: Ted Baker Fastnet

This would have looked futuristic a few years, or decades ago. Back in the time when a GameBoy would turn heads, when a Sony 'Sports' Walkman would be a killer. But guess what?

Mobile Security: Knock-On Code or Fingerprint Protection?

When it comes to the precious - our mobile phone - we tend to seek ultimate security; and with the new options at hand, we could have a fingerprint sensor or have the revolutionary knock-on code that LG currently offers. What do we prefer? Well both! Each one has its pros and cons, but with the NSA "issues", sometimes you need to reconsider your options.

Mobile Sites in the Gaming Space – What’s Out There?

Path Launches a New Messaging App: ‘Talk’

Most of us is aware of the social network aggregator app, Path. The idea of Path was bringing exclusivity to social networks, by forcing you to be selective by choosing your closest people, only allowing up to 150 contacts per user. This is history now, as the company decided to back off from its exclusivity angle by removing the friend limit. I personally almost immediately jumped on the Path train back when the service was first launched, ...

The Benefits of Going Back to The Past

Here's a point of view, strictly personal though. I love going back to using my old mobile phones from time to time. I spent the last few years cycling through the latest devices, and cycling through pretty fast. When I say fast, it means that I switch mobile devices every week. Yes, every single week for the last four years. It is true that sometimes I go back to using a mobile phone I've already used before. This switching/cycling habit is not ...
