Whatever happened to that old photograph?

0

Not a long time ago, you’d go away on holiday or to an event and return home with a bunch of films ready to be developed.  Killing time for the shop to develop them, you’d wonder how many photos would have come out right, or if you really had your finger over the lens in that one shot.  The glorious part however, was getting them home and labouring away filling a pristine album with the best ones, ready to show off to or bore to death as many friends and relatives as you possibly could.

In this labour intensive task, you’d still have your own pre-determined level of privacy. No one would be knocking the door down to ‘like’ or comment on your photos, neither would you have to be embarrassed about including the ones where you were showing your worse side to the camera. They were for you to show off as and when you pleased.

HTC London Meetup – Photo Blog

1

HTC announced it was to be holding a ‘Sensational’ gathering on April 12th, hinting at a launch of the much anticipated HTC Sensation with a 1.2ghz dual core and Android 2.3.

Lucky enough to have the day to myself, I decided to take a trip down the A40 from Cheltenham to London to see what kind of show HTC would put on for its Facebook and Twitter followers. I totally over-compensated for time and ended up arriving rather early, but fortunately there were already people queuing at the side entrance to the Bloomsbury Ballroom. I’m not one for pictures of people queuing, but there was plenty of things going on inside to get the senses going….

Sony Ericsson X10 – Long Term Review

1

When Android initially launched, Sony Ericsson were very quick to jump aboard the Open Handset Alliance as their previous outings in the smartphone market had been met with limited success.

The Xperia brand enjoyed very mixed critique of their previous Windows mobile handsets such as the X1, which although attracted many with its looks, soon met heavy criticism for the sluggish software and convoluted menu styling. Did they manage to do Android justice with another piece of excellent hardware, or is it another case of being blighted by slightly ropey customisations? I tested the X10 over the course of over 6 months to get a feel of how good it is in the real world.

Motorola Xoom (wi-fi) – First Impressions

Motorola Xoom Tablet

So in my last week at a ‘large UK electrical retailer’ I managed to get some hands on time with a Motorola Xoom from the rather pretty Moto rep.

I thought seeing as I’d had an early preview I would share my thoughts with you guys prior to it’s exclusive launch in DSG stores hopefully on April 9th. My initial impression is that nearly every aspect of this device competes very strongly with the iPad, and in many cases betters it.

How Much is Too Much?

Generic Tech Store...

In a world where new items of technology are released on an almost daily basis, have the companies lost sight of their consumers?

“We’ve been working on this product for a while”said Apple’s icon, Steve Jobs, to a crowd of eager fans and journalists at the Yerba Buena Centre for the Arts, moments before unveiling the company’s new iPad model…

HTC Hero – Review

0

This post was originally contributed to Geeks.co.uk but as the phone is still available and widely used I thought I’d post it here also.  It is worth noting that since the original review, the Hero was updated to Android 2.1 bringing various enhancements and speed improvements. Any comments on apps etc. were correct at time of writing.

As the smartphone war gathers pace every handset manufacturer worth their salt has been keen to convey their own unique selling points to customers. Specifications are beginning to level out with 5MP cameras being mostly standard and Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth all now staple requirements. Manufacturers have to look elsewhere to grab our attention.

The opening minutes of Prototype are enough to confuse anyone, but are fundamentally to give you a taste of what is to come if you spend the time to progress through the game.
