ChatSim Review

Bitcasa shuts their cloud storage offering

See? This is what gets me about cloud storage. You can spend hours, days, months and years uploading your treasured memories to an online drive, only for the provider in question to shut up shop. You’re then left scrambling around trying to find a new provider, or

BBC launch iPlayer Kids app

If, like me, you have a little one in the house, you’ll know what a minefield it is keeping them safe while letting them having access to the internet. My little boy loves to watch people gaming on YouTube, but sometimes what appears to be a suitable

EE TV Update goes wrong, new features rolled back

Customers of the EE TV service already have a few questions. Will BT TV eventually replace their box? Perhaps. More importantly though, where’s the promised March update? It’s still not here, and customers aren’t happy. The update is pretty promising, and the promised new features are very

Circle uses Bitcoin technology with your bank account

Once it seemed to be a dark and mysterious system. A currency which was somehow linked with the “underworld”. However, it’s now becoming more and more mainstream. Not only that, but it’s becoming easier to shift money around using Bitcoins and the Bitcoin system itself has developed

EE TV. Are you having problems with the app?

On March 30th EE announced something rather cool for their EE TV customers. A new update to EE TV boxes lets users transfer any Freeview content to a mobile device as soon as it airs. That sounded remarkably cool, and effectively means that you can carry recorded

Android Pay in the UK. Finally… err.. announced as coming soon

MixRadio goes pop

The music streaming service has unceremoniously closed today, with very little detail about the reason behind the decision. A statement on their site simply reads.. We are very sorry to say that MixRadio has closed We would like to thank everyone who has helped make the last

An app developer reveals piracy figures, and it’s not good

Most websites covering smartphones, especially Android ones, will swerve this topic. It’s a topic that we all know about. One that a lot of us are guilty of too. Piracy. As a long-time Android user, I’m almost programmed not to pay for apps. So many, and I
