Microsoft fights old mistakes, slows down Nokia? #rant + Important news

Microsoft fights old mistakes, slows down Nokia? #rant + Important news

| July 29, 2013 | 114 Replies

Windows Phone is a Microsoft product that has an amazing vision of what a smartphone should be, not restricted by the common features that other smartphones have, it goes for a different target audience and experience so it operates differently. And so to understand why this vision is slightly misguided and needs to change. I’ll […]

Skype Video Messaging Graduates from Beta for ALL Platforms… Except Windows Phone (Mini Rant)

Skype Video Messaging Graduates from Beta for ALL Platforms… Except Windows Phone (Mini Rant)

| June 17, 2013 | 58 Replies

Once again Microsoft has done the impossible and made me doubt their competence even more than before! The latest piece of perplexing decisions comes in the form of the Skype Video messaging feature which has just graduated from Beta status for practically every single platform short of Windows phone. The app is available for PC, […]

Where’s Nokia’s 5″+ Phablets already? Does Nokia need one? #Rant

Where’s Nokia’s 5″+ Phablets already? Does Nokia need one? #Rant

| April 3, 2013 | 79 Replies

  Nokia concentrating on smartphones and not producing tablets is somewhat understandable given the current conditions for Nokia. But in the world of mobile phones (which includes smartphones) trends within this category are not too be missed. It isn’t the first time Nokians got left behind. In clamshell and touch, Nokia was much too arrogant […]

Dear Microsoft: Get off your lazy arse and get Instagram on WP (MS, do developers hate you?) #Rant

Dear Microsoft: Get off your lazy arse and get Instagram on WP (MS, do developers hate you?) #Rant

| February 3, 2013 | 249 Replies

  What am I looking at above? It’s a concept Instagram for WP8. What am I looking at below? It’s Instagram. On BB10. And apparently, it’s NOT an Android emulation. It’s rumoured to be native. If that’s the case then there’s some tables flipping this Sunday :p.  (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ No, we aren’t the only ones beginning […]

Rant: How Microsoft Are Killing Themselves (and Me) With Regional Restrictions

Rant: How Microsoft Are Killing Themselves (and Me) With Regional Restrictions

| January 6, 2013 | 51 Replies

Before I start allow me to make one thing absolutely clear; I HATE regional restrictions with a passion that burns hotter than the sun. I understand that in some instances it’s a must (such as Music streaming apps due to licensing issues, i.e. Nokia Music or Video streaming such as Netflix etc.), but it still gets on my nerves […]

N8 appears in Aussie Drama; Boasts iOS Call UI

N8 appears in Aussie Drama; Boasts iOS Call UI

| September 24, 2012 | 16 Replies

I know this is a pointless post, but I am fairly worked up over this. Over the last week, I had seen ads for an Aussie Drama, House Husbands. My Nokia eye caught glimpses of the side of an N8. I made it my mission to watch the latest episode, as I had been told […]

Lumia 900 now in KSA stores ( + mini rant )

| September 1, 2012 | 41 Replies

Got tipped this the other day from Syed ( @spunkybloke ), about the Lumia 900 arriving in stores in KSA. I pushed the post back until I could get more information from him, and now we have it, as well as official confirmation, so I thought it was an appropriate time to post. So as […]

Family of MeeGo-Harmattan protoype devices?

| August 9, 2012 | 141 Replies

I posted this over at MobilePhoneInnovation, so I figured I should post it here as well, since it is something a few readers may be interested in taking a look at. I’ve been doing some digging and have come across an interesting quote by somebody that was a part of getting MeeGo-Harmattan to where it […]

Video: A Day in London with Nokia’s Location-Based Apps (+ mini rant)

| August 9, 2012 | 9 Replies

Here’s a video showing “A day in London with Nokia’s location based apps”. Pinning locations to homescreen is really useful for me. Saves having to open up the app and search.     You know what, it’s great to go around London on foot, travelling the underground to zip from one exciting place to another. […]

Rant: Why Windows Phone Live Account Linking is EVIL

| August 1, 2012 | 55 Replies

Ok I might be slightly exaggerating right now, but it’s because I’m pissed; with yesterdays release of Outlook.com and a whole field of untapped email accounts going  live I jumped at the chance to grab a nice one for myself; after all this looks to be the future of Hotmail/Live = Future of WP. Playing […]

WP Marketplace search – why does it suck so bad, Microsoft?

WP Marketplace search – why does it suck so bad, Microsoft?

| July 16, 2012 | 33 Replies

It’s been nearly 17 months now using Windows Phone and the Marketplace. Whilst I’ve been more than satisfied with the quality and quantity of apps coming to the platform, what annoys me sometimes is the ridiculously awful app search in marketplace. This post is not so much about the equally important topic of ‘App Discovery’ […]

Hey @Nokia, please advertise your Nokia mapping solutions more?

| July 16, 2012 | 19 Replies

  If there’s one thing Nokia is supreme at is that it sucks at advertising anything that it is good at. You’ll never really know half the amazing stuff a Nokia is capable of unless you’re in a Nokia blogosphere related bubble. Outside of it, Nokia’s assets fizzle away because why? Nokia won’t advertise it. […]

Windows Phone 8: The Facts and What It Means for Nokia

| May 27, 2012 | 123 Replies

With all the rumors and speculations about Windows Phone 8; most importantly what phone (if any) will be upgradeable the internet has become a mess of contradicting articles and quotes each claiming something different, and usually each one is the complete opposite of the previous; so here’s in hopes of getting some things cleared up […]

Windows Phone Marketplace charging me twice for apps. AGAIN. Why?! (Sorted)

Windows Phone Marketplace charging me twice for apps. AGAIN. Why?! (Sorted)

| May 18, 2012 | 23 Replies

  This is now the second time this has happened. Marketplace has otherwise been a pleasant experience. Fortunately unlike Nokia/Ovi Stire, there is no download limit. You can download as many times as you like. Over and over. Unfortunately, the phone app, you CANNOT see what you have bought and what you haven’t. Well, not […]

Nokia ProTip: Bring Nokia 808 PureView everywhere!

Nokia ProTip: Bring Nokia 808 PureView everywhere!

| May 9, 2012 | 161 Replies

  Just a quick suggestion before I go to bed. Nokia, why not bring the Nokia 808 PureView everywhere? I completely understand your direction to go with Lumia. PureView is groundbreaking mobile imaging. Right now it’s on the Nokia 808. Based on current information, there is no possibility of PureView or anything remotely close reaching […]
