According to 2013 research conducted by mobile marketing expert Upstream tagged “The Next mobile frontier”, Nigerians covet HTC and Blackberry devices above the others at an equal 16%. A close second with 15% of the tally was Apple and then Samsung. Curiously absent on that list is the former powerhouse Nokia, although the company still commands [...]
It’s always a great idea to have a backup bootable disk in the event your computer goes wonky and you want to start from scratch. I think I have come across this issue twice in a span of a week where people have had issues with their Macs and needed to have a reinstall. The [...]
Apple inc. has just reported their earnings for Q1 and as has become Apple tradition, it is another record breaking quarter. Revenue for the quarter which ended on the 28th of December 2013 was a new record $57.6 billion, with profit staying same as the last quarter at $13.1 billion. Other highlights are as follows: [...]
Microsoft, a company that has been rather mum about its not so great Windows Phone sales & usage numbers is getting into the groove of announcing figures it thinks matter.

Apple managed to compress a ton of information into a 90-minute event and we are further compressing that into one super post for you. Here is what’s new: iPad5 iPad Air and [...]
Maybe…or maybe not. It most likely wasn’t but that doesn’t make the video below any less awesome. Designer Vaclav Krejci recreates the iOS 7 and iPhone 5s design using ONLY Microsoft Office. Mind blowing stuff. Do you still have “expert proficiency in Microsoft Office” you copied from some recycled C.V on your C.V? You may want [...]
The highly anticipated iOS 7 landed officially sometime last week or so to the delight of Apple fans round the world. This is a labor of love of Sir Jonathan Ive, head of design for hardware and software, and his team after the ouster of Scott Forstall from the mantle of head of everything iOS. [...]
