Data thieves beware

Data thieves beware

T-Mobile’s boss, John Legere, does not like his company’s stuff being pilfered. He also does not like cheap customers. Legere and his staff have found that some customers have managed to work their way around T-Mobile’s trademark 7GB monthly cap package by hiding their tethering usage. What this means is that users are surfing the company’s web from their mobile phones and using its LTE network to download stuff onto their computers for free. Under normal circumstances, tethering speed slows down after users’ monthly 7GB has been depleted. As a consequence of T-Mobile’s unlimited LTE mobile plans, users have still…

Spotify are introducing new features which  include Spotify Running, which determines the BPM of music to the pace of a run, and Discover Weekly which collates a weekly list of songs based on users’ personal tastes. Accessing information will allow the streaming company to enhance their customers’ streaming experience and create…

The road to Tokyo

The road to Tokyo

Trust the Japanese to get things done. Since they surrendered to two atomic bombs to officially end the world’s worst war to date, the Japanese have been powering ahead in regard to industrialisation and new technological innovations. Brazil continues to be plagued by corruption from the top down, construction delays and work force antagonism. But the Japanese continue to power ahead in spite of obstacles which have admittedly been of their own making. The Japanese are also renowned for their honour and rich cultural heritage which has also seen them wholeheartedly embrace Western alternatives. Japan’s government and the youth are…

This app saves animal life

The alliance between the US and the UK remains as strong as ever. These cross-Atlantic partners are joining forces on a new mission. This partnership has little to do with improving trade or creating new manufacturing jobs. It has even less to do with creating destructive weapons and going to war against rogue nations. In fact, it has a lot to do with saving the planet. This alliance is of a sporting nature. It also aims to save and preserve up to fifty different species of wildlife living in or near freshwater streams or larger rivers and lakes. The United…

The World grew smaller with Google Translate

The World grew smaller with Google Translate

Religious fundamentalists from around the world, particularly avid readers of different versions of the Holy Bible, are familiar with the Tower of Babel story. For those who don’t know it, here is a brief explanation. God grew angry with mankind when they attempted to build a skyscraper, the highest of its kind in the early days of architectural constructions with the aim of getting closer to the Almighty. In his anger, he stopped the builders in their tracks and destroyed this Tower of Babel. As punishment for their vanity, God divided communities, scattering them across the earth and causing them…

Google and its app ad actions

Google and its app ad actions

Google has heard their customers loudly and clearly. They have ended their run of annoyingly invasive ‘interstitial’ or pop-up mobile app ads. It’s true it took them a while to do so, but they have finally done what users have been demanding. The search engine giant realized that it is extremely annoying for Google users to deal with their full-screen ‘interstitial’ ads when loading a mobile site. Perhaps out of irritation, users justifiably ignored Google’s enticement to download the advertised app. Perhaps this is what has caused Google to sit up and take note. Inevitably, it is always about the…

Internet.org will get people online faster: Facebook

When users first sign up, Facebook’s wide range of social media services and access to news feeds and pages of preferred publishers are free. However, when users upgrade to higher levels of service, a fee becomes obligatory. Regular Facebook users must have already noticed the addition of this app on their mobile devices. It is called internet.org, a term not easily forgotten and quickly called up during a conventional search on the internet. Users may have noticed that sometimes they need to wait a few minutes before a search engine appears on their interface. By converting users to paid up plans, Facebook claims…

A brilliant scientist and a renowned billionaire are together seeking the help of smartphone users to actually find aliens. More to the point, British-born scientist, Stephen Hawking, and Russian billionaire, Yuri Milner, have amalgamated in a Fox-like quest to find extraterrestrial life and affirm that humankind is not alone in the universe. They are asking smartphone users to download a newly-developed app BOINC, which could prove that there is life out there. Hawking and Milner were helped in their quest by the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing who developed an invasive crowdsourcing platform which gives scientists the ability to…

New social app Beme showcases the unadulterated you

Social sharing apps, let’s face it, are distractions on what it truly means to be human. Rather than making life easier for busy folks and extending their ability to connect with people who have like-minded interests, most apps end up being distractions in more ways than one. Be it capturing that once in a lifetime moment, the birth of a first-born child, etc., most app users end up missing these golden moments altogether while trying to operate the app. One tech innovator is changing all that. Casey Neistat has been a devotee of YouTube, the software miracle which allows you…
