iOS7 is here but to be completely real and honest… Android is better

I’m not trying to bait people or be ridiculous and yes it doesn’t really matter in the scheme of things but it’s actually true. I used to have an iPhone 4. had it for 2 years and while my reasons for having one were not exclusively about my enjoyment of the device, an extensive contract (it was actually about the high re-sell values iPhone‘s maintain) or whatever, I too thought Android was not worthy of my attention

that was until I got a Nexus 4

nothing more to say really. click the link above for. thanks to Paul Stamatiou

can’t wait to see what KitKat has in store, crazy name aside

Is the mobile messaging space ripe for consolidation?

this is a good read about how the OTT (Over The Top) messaging market is shaping up and highlights something I totally forgot to be honest: the possibility of being acquired. who will go first?

Mobile messaging apps like WhatsApp has been on a tear lately, with Whatsapp growing its monthly active users from 200 million to 300 million in just four months. It should come as no surprise that WhatsApp is a prime candidate for acquisition, but there could be a lot more consolidation in the over-the-top communications world as well.

Andreas BernstromRecently I spoke to Andreas Bernström, CEO of Rebtel, an international VoIP communications company that was providing over-the-top services before the term OTT was ever coined. He shared his views on how the inevitable consolidation in the OTT market would shake out, including what companies he believes would be acquisition targets and what companies would not.

The messaging best, and all the rest

The top target on Bernström’s list is, of course, WhatsApp. Not only has the text messaging startup grown into a giant with a subscriber base rivaling that of…

another iOS 7 ‘leak’ or opinion? either way, I like it

The whole OS has that ‘skinny jeans’ Helvetica Neue Ultra Light [or similar] that you’ve seen in those posters. At the top, instead of carrier signal bars, Apple now has 5 dots that are white or gray to represent the signal.

via “What iOS 7 looks like” – let’s hope not – Neowin.

via the writers at Neowin via 9-5 Mac comes another look ahead at the anticipated iOS7 reveal at the WWDC starting tonight at 6pm GMT. new devices are expected also depending on which website you go to or ‘analyst :-)’ *spits* you believe. LOL at the comments from the writer Ben Buffone though

Whilst this information, if true, gives us some great insight into an early beta of iOS 7, it doesn’t detract from how awful it looks. Check out that Safari icon; it looks like a damn thermostat.

ouch lol. tell ’em how you feel!

the look is minimal and ‘flat’ which is how things are being pushed by certain multinational North American tech and sales companies (Ebay) these. why? I would like to know too

Microsoft did get there first with Windows Phone, Google have Holo and it is something I definitely approve of so while Apple will roll this out and attempt to pass it off as something wholly original…yeah…take it away Steve (R.I.P)
