4K Rich Recording Drum Solo capture (Denim on 930 with Lumia Camera)

| February 23, 2015 | 4 Replies

You may or may not have a 4K screen to appreciate the extra pixels, but you’re probably more likely to have some good enough headphones to realise how superior Nokia’s history of audio recording has been, climaxing with the 930 and 1520. Having something as simple as stereo recording changes the whole environment of the […]

Weekend Watch: W10 keyboard on phones

Weekend Watch: W10 keyboard on phones

| February 22, 2015 | 2 Replies

Mark demoes the new keyboard in Windows 10. It looks mostly familiar but there is a new dot cursor and mic button. I’ve found cursor keys quite useful to have (SwiftKey has a row of this) but this seems like potentially a better layout. The only thing that concerns me are current bugginess. Mark shows […]

Next Lockscreen from Microsoft gets bug fixes, disables accidental home button presses

| February 18, 2015 | Reply

Another update for Microsoft’s Next Lockscreen on Android. This was previously mentioned already with the PIN/pattern lock and the additional languages. This time there’s a disabling of the home button which bypassed the lockscreen. Good to see the team working swiftly. Now to let us have some options for not having to ender the lock […]

WindowsPhone to end “Rooms” support by March 2015. Something new for W10?

WindowsPhone to end “Rooms” support by March 2015. Something new for W10?

| February 17, 2015 | 6 Replies

Did I miss another indication to this? It is just a matter of days until March 2015, so it seems all a bit sudden. Unless of course they have something else to replace the “ROOMS” feature which is being discontinued. Perhaps this is to extend the feature to other Windows 10? Or better, making it […]

5-point multiboot including Sailfish OS/Ubuntu Touch/FireFox OS/Android/FoxHound #Jolla

| February 17, 2015 | 4 Replies

This video shows off booting 5 different OSes on the Nexus 5. Why? Why not :). Never heard of FoxHound, I thought it was the title of the song used. Does Sailfish stand out? FireFox OS looks like the last thing I’d want to use.

Nokia CEO: Nokia design NOT sold to Microsoft, Back to consumer products maintaining Nokia FEEL in ALL products

Rajiv Suri speaks to Times India. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/tech/tech-news/Nokia-CEO-Rajiv-Suri-We-will-maintain-the-Nokia-feel-in-all-our-products/articleshow/46231813.cms The story returns to the Chennai factory, which is still frozen and unable to be sold. He says however that they’re close to selling it. 2M electronic equipment was made there last year, 50% exported. Perhaps the meeting with Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, may soon help with the un-freezing […]

You get 100GB, and you get 100GB, EVERYONE gets 100GB OneDrive!

| February 16, 2015 | 26 Replies

Initially limited release, this wonderful 100GB promo gives more reason to switch over to OneDrive if you haven’t already or just continue using it more so. Extra OneDrive storage was the main reason I got Office 365 (cheaper as a student than the extra I was paying for). This won’t mean much change in storage […]

Here are a collection of videos that check out the latest low end Microsoft handset, the Lumia 435. The packaging is back to the rectangular cuboid block, the phone looking more like a cousin of the Nokia X but with WP. It’s kinda cute! PhoneDog Games are at least playable. That’s quite different from the cheaper […]

It’s been a long time since the launch of the Nokia Lumia 1020, the last camera Lumia flagship. The 830 tried in ways to bring PureView to the masses. Michael Fisher from Pocketnow compares the two devices. Basically, the obvious part is if you’re strictly talking about the camera, yes go for the 1020. But […]
