Posted: January 26, 2011 in Internet, Social, tech

It is pretty obvious that giants Facebook and Google are heading it out to see who comes out on top as Google has rolled out A statement saying “They are hiring 6200 employees in the year 2011 which is up from the 6122 in 2007” while Facebook are nearing 600 million user (1/10 in the world). With Google recent having their business guru Eric Schmidt stepping down as CEO Larry Page has A lot to prove in the company. So the big question now really is who will become the biggest successor ?

Out with Netbooks In with Tablets

Posted: January 21, 2011 in Internet, tech

In A recent Post I spoke about the popularity of smartphones and tablets replacing the need for netbooks in the community. Well popular company Deloitte are with me on this and have recently stated that in the year of 2011 they are only distributing smartphones and Tablets meaning that they are dropping the Netbooks. I won’t say I’m surprised because I foresaw this coming a mile away.

New is out that the new Nokia N8 is out and it looks pretty impressive looking at the features, on the other hand the new iPhone 4  has been the talk about ever since its launch date. Looking at some of the articles that have been written to compare the two smart phones one may have different views about them yet some are written in favour of either the N8 or the iPhone. Now when you look at the two devices they are both very good products two of the best smartphones out lately.

Facebook CEO  Mark Zuckerberg said the social giant Facebook are looking into making an email service for Facebook which will allow only certain people within your social network to be able to send you emails and so forth which is another way they are trying to reduce spam !.

iPhone vs Andriod

Posted: November 19, 2010 in Development, Internet, tech

The battle continues as the two giant companies battle over which phone we as the customers should use. Recently stats show that the two are even in the month of October in term of smartphones. When comparing the two iPhone gets a heads up for usability but Android gets the heads up for apps so one has to decide between excellent usability or top of the range new fresh apps. Yes iPhone does have apps for the iPhone range but the Android apps are far better and they arrive before the iPhone gets them.


So which is your pick ?
