Which do you prefer name wise? Windows Camera or Lumia Camera?

Which do you prefer name wise? Windows Camera or Lumia Camera?

| June 29, 2015 | 5 Replies

Nokia Camera became Lumia Camera under Microsoft. Now there’s Windows Camera. Is that replacing Lumia Camera or Microsoft Camera? Also…is this simply so all Windows Devices can use that camera app (i.e. Surface) or for other brands? What does this mean for Lumia? I think possibly just having one unified interface would be best.

Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 10136 – One handed use, UI changes, better Cortana and more!

Microsoft have announced build 10136 for Windows 10 Mobile Insider preview. If you were already on 1008, you cannot update to this. You have to go back to 8.1 via Windows Phone Recovery Tool and then update via Windows Insider. This is due to a migration bug. Instead of waiting for that to get fixed, you can do […]

Cortana, Nokia Z-Launcher and Now pushes Siri to be smarter

| June 8, 2015 | 3 Replies

Today at Apple’s event, they announced a more proactive Siri. Like your Lumia, Siri can tell you about traffic when you’re leaving for work. I think Siri also looks at your calendar (looks at locations) and also gives info about traffic times. App wise, a bit like Nokia Z-launcher, iOS will suggest apps based on […]

Step aside fingerprint scanners, Microsoft Cityman leaprogs to Iris scanning

Step aside fingerprint scanners, Microsoft Cityman leaprogs to Iris scanning

| June 7, 2015 | 2 Replies

According to @evleaks, the Microsoft Cityman (rumoured to have a fingerprint scanner) leapfrogs way past that and goes for iris scanning. The benefit of either is really in ease of use, reliability of use and security. The first time Apple showed their version off, it wasn’t exactly the best implementation – with some reports of […]

Tom Warren from TheVerge reports that Microsoft’s Voice assistant, Cortana, will be available on iOS and Android. It won’t be as powerful as the inbuilt Cortana for Windows due to how well Cortana is integrated into Windows but it’s a start. Android has Google Now and iOS has Siri. Google Now voice assistant isn’t a […]

Our Lumia 640 XL review over at GOG has just gone up, so without further ado here it is: http://geekongadgets.com/2015/05/08/microsoft-lumia-640-xl-the-review/ The Lumia 640 XL is a pretty awesome phablet, and most of my complaints about the device were towards the actual design of the device, rather than the internals;  the overall build quality feels a […]

Ooh, “Edge”. Is that the new buzz word for something cool? No, it’s Microsoft’s new browser. Microsoft Edge. It’s so named because it redefines the edge of today. Kinda like Columbus redefining the edge of the world. Less S6/Note 4 Edge. It looks nice and clean. Chrome – the chrome sides of the browser. Edge […]

  I love WP’s built in stuff. It’s perfect for folks new to smartphones and just want a phone to work but don’t really mind not having the latest apps at hand (or using third party alternatives). It’s nice to see that the app gap might not be a gap anymore. Windows 10 allows you […]

Here we go. The name sounds a bit underwhelming – like a sync feature where you use one device and continue on another. It’s a bit more than that. Your phone can be plugged in to a mouse, keyboard and display and become a full fledged Windows 10 PC. The thing I like is when […]
