    Apple Watch to Drive Wearable Sales in Canada

    IDC is one of the most prominent market researchers and the organization has turned its attention to the Canadian market and is looking forward to 2015. While Canada is not necessarily a hot bed for tech activity, the data for the country seems to point to a similar worldwide trend that will happen in the coming 12 months. IDC says that wearable sales will increase sharply on the back of the Apple Watch, something that is widely predicted on a global scale. More

    Samsung Pulls Plug on Galaxy U Series

    Samsung makes so many devices and has so many smartphone ranges that it is hard to keep up. Take for example the Galaxy U line of handsets, another new series that has been in development alongside the A series, E series, as well as an overhaul of the S range. It is a muddling array of devices to be sure, so I am glad that Samsung has reportedly decided to ditch the Galaxy U series at the development stage. More

    Gestures Beta App: Take Calls without Touching the Screen

    Microsoft's Windows Phone platform may be losing the operating system war to iOS and Android (by a long way too), but that does not mean it is without interesting features. It is actually a very robust platform and yours truly would love to see it more prominent if Microsoft can solve a few nagging issues. A new piece of software called the Gestures Beta app is now adding even more functionality to the platform. More

    Exclusive: Samsung Not Launching Galaxy S6 at CES Next Month

    Samsung's back to the drawing board "Project Zero" Galaxy S6 is the company's upcoming flagship and arguably a vitally important device in judging where the fortunes of the Korean giant lie. This year's Galaxy S5 was not a disaster by any stretch but it came alongside a general cooling in relations between Samsung and the consumer, the S6 is the device that is supposed to reignite the spark.

    Xiaomi's Successful but Does Not Make Much Money

    Xiaomi's rise in the market has been nothing short of extraordinary and unprecedented. The Chinese brand entered a mature market and gained massive success within it in just four years, but there are some compromises to that success as it turns out Xiaomi did not make as much money in 2013 as was originally reported.

    Samsung Falls, Apple, Xiaomi, and Android Surge Says Gartner

    The popularity of smartphones shows no sign of slowing down around the world as 20% more handsets were sold through the last quarter compared to the previous period. The data (and a lot more besides) was compiled by reputed market researchers Gartner. The company found that 310 million smartphones have been shipped during the last three month period, while feature phones continue to tumble to obscurity thanks to more availability of budget smartphones.

    Apps and Games for iOS that Android Does Not Have

    Both the iOS App Store and the Google Play Store are full of applications, with both offerings hovering around the 1 million app mark. Both markets are full of awful apps and perhaps only 20% of the titles are worth looking at, at least for any length of time. However, it is hard to argue that between the two that Apple's App Store has the upper hand. More

    LG are in the Windows tablet/convertible market now after releasing the Tab Book Duo, a slate none of us saw coming and one that boasts a battery life that rivals iPads and Android tablets.

    Sharp AQUOS Crystal X

    The Sharp AQUOS Crystal landed in the US on Sprint and Boost a few months back and wowed us with its unique all-screen design. It looks utterly amazing in hand, but the truth is the handset was a bit of a mid-range driver, completely unspectacular in terms of performance and specs. Nothing particularly wrong with that, but the design deserves more in our opinion. More

    Android 5.0 Lollipop is finding its way to more and more devices, with even some third party OEM built handsets getting the latest and greatest from Google. The platform is now making its way to the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition, the version of Sammy's 2013 flagship that runs the stock Android experience as Google intended it. More

    Motorola Bringing 4G Device to India Soon

    Motorola is one of the company's that paved the way for the current interest in the budget market, while the number of emerging markets moving into middle class incomes has also played a part. Motorola's Moto G and Moto E handsets are still among the best low end efforts on the market, although I feel a bit cheeky calling them low end due to their quality. More

    Blackberry (Re) Launches Brick Builder Game

    Blackberry had a go at the future and found that it has been left behind by Apple and Android, so the Canadian company has decided to turn back the clock. Yes, the Passport marries the best of both worlds, but the new Blackberry Classic is full on old school charm. It has the company's famous QWERTY keyboard and trackpad in tow, a mirror to the successful Bold smartphone. More

    The Sony Pictures hack saga show no signs of abating, and in fact the perpetrators, the so-called Guardians of Peace (GOP), are even hinting at a worldwide cyber terrorism act and that Sony is just the first target. They managed to steal 100 terabytes of data including information on employee salaries, movie scripts and even screening versions of upcoming films that have since been leaked online. More
