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

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

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 ┬álive 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 Marketplace charging me twice for apps. AGAIN. Why?! (Sorted)

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

  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 […]

  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 […]

Rant- Rumors: European Carriers Not Keen on Lumias?

| April 17, 2012 | 196 Replies

I read the following stories on several other sites; but wasn’t sure it warranted a mention due to the fact that not a single solid name/source was mentioned in them- all that’s listed is “un-named source, Mobile executive, Carrier company…) so of course it could be a load of bull.. I’ll start with the obviously […]

| April 5, 2012 | 90 Replies

  In the last few weeks, you may have noticed that I have been referring back to an old blogpost where Stephen Fry talked about Nokia, in particular the N97. Stephen Fry is a celebrity particularly famous in the UK for his acting, comedy, presenting, and an all around likeable, intellectual Brit that loves a […]
