Things I Love About My Mobile: Part 2 – The Perfect Guide

September 29, 2011

1

21st January 2010. An unremarkable Thursday if I recall. Well that was until this happened: Free Navigation for Life for Nokia Smartphones. I’ll be honest, I was a bit bummed. One of the appeals of choosing the 6710 Navigator, was that at that price point, it was the only Symbian phone that came with a […]

Gravity: A Cure For Social Network ‘Check-In’ Fatigue?

September 23, 2011

2

Social networks these days seem to be a dime a dozen, at least to my not so social self. From the ubiquitous Facebook, to potentially disruptive upstarts like the big Gs Google+, and everything in between like Twitter, Foursquare, Gowalla, GetGlue and Linkedin. Even Google Reader, a reinvention of the aging RSS feed, has a […]

Things I Love About My Mobile: Part 1 – The Perfect Frequency

September 7, 2011

As you might have gathered from the content of this blog, I love all things mobile. I would go so far as to say I could love basically any mobile phone, or at least can find something, even one thing to love about it. And yes this includes a certain ‘iconic’ device that my friends […]

The Tech Bishop’s Guide to Getting the most out of your Symbian Device

August 26, 2011

Earlier this week, I received an E7 loan unit from the good guys over at Nokia South Africa, which I get to keep for a month (full review to follow). While setting up the device for my needs, it struck me how dogmatic the whole process has become for me. I attribute this primarily to […]

My Five Essential Apps

July 22, 2011

1

Confession time: I am a bit of an app addict. I collect them liberally, trying out at least one new app every day I reckon. And with disk space not an issue on my N8, they pile up. My menu is reasonably well organised, with the apps split into folders, so actually finding them is […]

The Great Hardware/Software Divide

July 4, 2011

After messing about with one of Nokia’s modern day battery champions, the E72 and then enjoying a fruitful day with the awesome camera on my hero phone, the N8, I got thinking into what makes a great smartphone, specifically for me. Now of course everyone’s mileage will differ and hence their needs will vary, and […]

Reading Later: A Symbian Story

June 30, 2011

I am a recent convert to Read It Later and must say I can’t imagine getting by without it. Since I spend the majority of my time interaction with the web/cloud on my phone, with every new desktop service I discover, I go searching for a mobile app. As a Symbian user though, I was not […]

Kasvopus: an alternative and fast developing Facebook client for Symbian

March 23, 2011

Kasvo – face, opus – book, and put it together… It is as simple as that. What this young beta application from developer Tommi Laukannen represents is the possibility of an excellent, lightweight and feature rich Facebook client to replace the immensely flawed Social app on the Symbian^3 devices. I would need an entire post […]
