We’ve gone all secure

Late last night we switched the site over from http://www.coolsmartphone.com to https://www.coolsmartphone.com. There’s a few reasons why we did this. Firstly, Google is pushing for websites to do this as it secures the connection between you there and us here. Any data flowing from the site or into …

Coolsmartphone Update!

In recent months we’ve seen a significant uptick in traffic. This has left us with a problem. We needed more funding to pay for better, faster and more powerful infrastructure. Last week I tried a quick-fix solution to this, which was to add some full-page website banners. You …

Coolsmartphone Podcast 214 Late Rumours

Coolsmartphone Podcast 207 Live

Coolsmartpone Podcast 204 Live

The days are getting fairly long here in the UK, and some of us enjoy an evening stroll, maybe with a smartphone, a powerbank and the Pokemon GO app being tapped at. This is one of the reasons that episode 204 of the Coolsmartphone Podcast will be live …

Smartphones. The old days.

I finally raided my “special cupboard” and look. Look at what greeted me. Anyone remember these? I know some of you might recognise your favourites, but I’m going to start with the oldest one, on the left. It’s the Orange SPV, also known as the HTC Canary. This …

Coolsmartphone Podcast 187 – S Club & Peppa

We would like to thank John for his stewardship and work on the Coolsmartphone Podcast since 2015. Thanks John, the CSP Podcast would not have been as much fun and have had as great guests had you not been looking after us. We wish you all the very …

Coolsmartphone Podcast 186 – Live

John won’t be able to join in this week. Matteo’s back on this side of the pond. Will he be able to keep the conversation on track with Majid, Garry and Greg? OK, that was a silly question. How far off track will the opinionists of the Coolsmartphone …
