A channel called GingerManiacs does a tutorial on how to install Lollipop onto the Nokia 1100. Advertisements It’s easier than you’d think. Yes I know it’s silly, but oddly it unexpectedly made me chuckle when I saw it.

How’s the Lumia update? Are you experiencing problems with Lumia Denim? Still waiting?

Are you on Lumia Denim? If so, how are you finding the changes? I’ve seen a few comments and tweets mentioning issues that have cropped up after installing Denim (e.g. slower rotation?). I haven’t got it yet so I’m in the “still waiting” category. Advertisements

Yesterday the insider preview for Windows 10 went live. My ancient Acer is on its last knees so I thought why the heck not. You can either install it: over whatever your PC is currently (e.g. Win7/8) – all your files stay the same clean install (put the ISO on an external drive and format […]

This might not be the first time you’ve seen comparisons with the iPhone 6 plus and a Lumia. When Lumia brought OIS, our cameras photos had insane low light and our videos looked so much smoother in comparison to the earthquake present in the scenes of the competition. But now OIS is becoming a standard. […]

The word on twitter prior to this official statement at Lumia Conversations was that Lumia on WP8 would get Windows 10. Over at Lumia Conversations, their FAQ bit isn’t exactly as straight forward as :   Does that mean that today’s Lumia devices can be upgraded to Windows 10?  http://lumiaconversations.microsoft.com/2015/01/22/the-lumia-you-love-gets-even-better-with-windows-10/ We’re making it as easy […]

Dean Pattrick from MixRadio demoes MixRadio on the adidas smartwatch (miCoach). You can check out the 30 minute run (6.5 km/4 miles) Dean did just for this video. And there I was worried that he was short of breath from running to the grassy bit and back :p http://micoach.adidas.com/uk/Track/PublicWorkout/107dc653-0593-496c-b669-1082002b6177#HeartRate Via @MixRadio

HoloLens initial impressions: It’s real, it’s crazy, it’s incredible! (BTW what about tactile/texture glove interaction?)

Microsoft’s HoloLens is so impressive, it’s rightfully been branded as either fake, simulated, vapourware and similar words of that ilk. All the visual stuff, it’s all real with no lag, everything reacting as if it were real. TheVerge says it was kinda incredible! They thought it was a really smart way to use this technology […]

Windows 10 for phones looks great! So many new welcome improvements. Until the consumer update is ready, there’ll still be improvements that Microsoft will be adding. What do you think Microsoft has left to add? Here’s one: Frequently mentioned is the possibility of split screen. Genuine split screen of all apps and not the appalling […]

Microsoft’s HoloLens is causing quite a stir. One of the best places to gauge how the reaction will be across a wider range of people is Reddit. Warning: profanity here and there. As per the promo – imagine Minecraft with this. It was interesting to see it portrayed with minecraft creations placed on top of […]

I’m not sure how up to date the view councounter is over at YouTube but it’s currently rocking over 3 million views for a video that was just uploaded 11 hours ago. That would either need a mass of preteen JB/1D fans on their latest music video or something that has wowed a lot of […]

Yesterday, MS announced that the Windows 10 Upgrade will be free for the first year. I’ve been hesitant to even stray away from Windows 7 from my current ancient Acer gaming desktop (simply because any changes to this awful Acer hardware makes it die quicker) but I’m really intrigued about Windows 10 – perhaps it […]

Today, Microsoft announced their changes for WindowsPhone. In summary? I thought they did a great job! I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect. The jaded side of me wasn’t expecting a lot even though my mind knew that Microsoft had a lot to prove. I think they’ve done that. There’s a lot of new things but […]
