Issues with Push Notifications for iOS

With the news that the Gmail app for iOS was updated two days ago, I decided to give it a go as a replacement to the native iOS Mail app. And for the first time in three years, Google apps are dominating the lower app bar on my phone. (Pictured above!) However, and this isn’t […]

Touch Screen Gaming is Different

I play a lot of games. It should come as no surprise that a lot of the games I play are also for the iOS, especially considering that I used to run an iOS Game Review site. Lately, I have been playing a lot of FIFA 11. I’ve been playing the English Premier League as […]

Fragmentation Theatre

Yesterday, I read about and tweeted about Netflix working on an Android app, but it won’t be available for all phones. Why? Netflix product development guru Greg Peters blogged yesterday that “the lack of a generic and complete platform security and content protection mechanism available for Android” has prevented the company from expanding to the […]

As a self-employed individual, you often have to find ways to stay in shape without the luxury of a gym when you’re just starting out. I have managed to run into this problem myself, so I decided to stay proactive by getting on an exercise program that I can run out of my own house. […]

Zoompass Tag: My Impression + Field Test

Usually on a Friday, I’d have a Featured Album Friday blog post up, but because I’m apparently hitting the books hard, I haven’t had a minute to really check out new songs – regularly scheduled posts will be back soon time, I promise.

Now, I haven’t heard of many applications like this for the iPhone because […]

What should Nokia do?

Earlier today, I tweeted about my feelings regarding the status of Nokia as a cell phone brand and company, and how their smartphones were being disregarded for the most part. Keep in mind that I myself carry a Nokia E71 and for the most part have been pleased with it, but several issues have turned […]

Technologically stagnant

Considering that Rogers has more than 6 million postpaid wireless subscribers (Source) where a good number of them still pay their System Access Fees, why are we still paying an arm and a leg for complacency? Let’s crunch the numbers: $6.95 – System Access Fee 6,451,000 – Approximate number of postpaid subscribers, as of December […]

To my brand new best friend: Nokia E71

Here’s my official review (More like comparison!) of the Nokia E71 that came in for me today. Summary for the lazy: I am absolutely in love, and it’s an amazing phone! You can read about tech specs and whatever features it has elsewhere, so I’m going to compare it to the Samsung Jack as well […]
