Apple – The unstoppable force

Why Nintendo won’t make their games available for smartphones

Apple posts the biggest quarterly profits of any company, ever

Fix that busted phone or tablet. iMend Review

OK, I’m going to talk about it. In London recently I sat at Euston and generally watched the world go by. What was pretty amazing was the amount of people using broken phones. I saw three people with broken iPhones, and they were all cracks or busted

Hey, what’s your thoughts on the new Android ads?

You’ve seen the iPhone and iPod adverts. They’ve been copied quite heavily by other manufacturers. You’ve seen the Windows Phone ads too, which are currently pushing Cortana quite heavily and showing how it performs up against Siri.. But, at the moment for me at least, the raft
