Nokia pokes at Apple’s lack of color in new ad

In one of the most pointless and annoying attacks on a piece of technology I’ve ever seen, Nokia has launched a new ad campaign featuring a commercial that touts the available colors of its new Lumia 920, and nothing else (no, seriously, nothing else). If you’re as annoyed by this as I am and don’t even want to watch it, the ad is as follows: a…

If I didn’t have an iPhone…

In 2007, Apple famously entered the smartphone world. Many at the time saw it as a mistake. But thanks to some incredible hype-building, great usability and a fantastically minimalist design, the iPhone has become the most successful phone on the planet. And it keeps getting more and more popular. Last quarter alone, Apple sold 37 million iPhones…

Which CES 2012 gadgets would tempt you away from your iDevice?

iOS is awesome, as are pretty much all devices loaded with it.

They were fresh, and people were eager to try them out. Windows Phone 7 is launching in a time where iOS and Android have had 3-4 years of evolution, and are very solid…

Social Saturday: Is WP7 a worthy iOS competitor?

Facebook user Jared G. asks “Do you think WP7 provides a competitor to iOS?” To put it bluntly, no. Now before you start with the angry comments, let me explain. Windows Phone 7 is a perfectly fine mobile OS, and I’m sure there are tons of people out there who are completely loyal to it. It offers a unique take on the touch-based interface and it has an…

Microsoft claims Siri’s technology is old news

Microsoft Chief Research and Strategy Officer Craig Mundie spoke with Forbes last week, and he had some interesting things to say regarding the iPhone 4S’ virtual assistant. Apparently Mundie is less than impressed with Siri, claiming that the technology is nothing new. In fact, he goes so far as to say that Windows Phone has been offering a similar…
