We dissect the week’s highs and lows in tech and gadget news with Tristan Rogers, CEO of ConcretePlatform, the collaboration software specialists whose clients include Gap, Levi’s, Tesco, Marks & Spencer, Debenhams, Mamas & Papas and Mothercare.
 

Since Apple’s iPhone 5 announcement earlier this month, there has been a flurry of new ranges of iPhone 5 cases and peripherals launching, from the sublime designer cool to the ridiculous would-not-be-seen-dead with. It seems that Apple’s consumers cannot get enough third-party peripherals to encase, sheathe and cover their coveted iGadgets with. Yet if Apple’s Jony Ive’s claims are anything to go by, this is the strongest and most durable iPhone yet. So why cover it up?
 
Tristan says: “I hate people who name their car. I hate people who wear dangly stuff around their wrists, and I hate it when people feel the need to mess with their beautifully engineered and manufactured iPhone, sticking it in a case that looks like a hedgehog or an oh-so trendy cassette tape. Having said that, the iPhone4 was more slippery than Quentin Wilson, and I smashed five of them. For my sixth iPhone4, I bought the most discrete “barely there” case I could find from InCase.”

Ever since the arrival of the original iPhone back in 2007, the world’s technology media has been almost universally positive about Apple’s smartphone developments. Until now, that is, with many tech mags and websites giving the iPhone 5 a somewhat cool reception, due to the fact that it only really contains a few minor incremental changes to last year’s iPhone 4S, including a faster processor, a bigger screen and far nippier 4G mobile web access. However, it seems that Apple fans want to see revolutions and major tech breakthroughs on an annual basis…  Tristan says: “I always thought Apple’s products were so good they could have been British, so it seems apt that Apple now enter the very British phase of success where they become a victim of it. The iPhone 3 was amazing. The iPhone 4 was even more amazing. The iPhone 6 will be… Well, I think you get my point.”  topTech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Tech media cools on iPhone 5 – but why?(©MSN)Sony launches slimmer PS3 Sony introduced a slimmer version of the PlayStation 3 this week, fuelling the inevitable speculation that a PlayStation 4 announcement is to follow soon. The announcement came directly from the annual industry shindig that is the Tokyo Game Show, with Sony set to release a 12GB solid-state drive (SSD) version of the super-slim PS3 early next month. Expect to see Sony’s new console on UK store shelves for around £150, just in time for the busy Christmas holiday gaming season.  Tristan says: “I love PS3 exclusively for the fact that Sony has the distribution rights to Gran Turismo. The fact that the new PS3 is “slimmer” leaves me wondering what I’m supposed to do with that information. It still runs a slow DVD for the game launch process, and I can’t plug it into some kind of hydraulic chair to make the driving seem more real. Come on Sony, make it twice the size and really brilliant.”  topSony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)Sony launches slimmer PS3(©Sony)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5 Apple launched the new mobile operating system, iOS 6 for iPhones, iPods and iPads, a couple of days prior to this week’s arrival of the iPhone 5. As with any new operating system, initial responses were mixed, with some users hating on the new Apple Maps app (and wanting to return to Google Maps) and others loving the 3D city maps and free turn-by-turn navigation, courtesy of TomTom.  Tristan says:“Reading about how Apple is taking on Google with Maps, for example, is exciting stuff, and demonstrates to me how far Apple has come from being a computer manufacturer with its own OS to being software vendor with its own hardware. Launching OS6 before the iPhone 5 probably shows where its priorities lie.”  topiOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)iOS 6 arrives days before iPhone 5(©Apple)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter Ex-Goodie and celebrity ornithologist Bill Oddie (@BillOddie) found a new use for Twitter this week, attempting to translate bird calls into Tweets at London Zoo – marking them with the hashtag #BirdsThatTweet.   The bizarre tweet-up was held to celebrate the start of the migration season, with Oddie informing us that: "Every bird has a bit of a vocabulary. They have seven different areas of sound, and they will all have meaning. It might be a young bird asking for food, or a bird saying 'this is my territory'.”  Tristan says: “When I read that Bill Oddie had found a new use for Twitter, I quickly clicked through on the story link to find out if it was true. Perhaps predictably, I found 140 characters of utterly meaningless gibberish. Apparently, the bird he was transcribing was looking for company. I wonder if it struck a chord with Oddie.”  topTweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)Tweets for my Tweet: Bill Oddie finds new use for Twitter(©BillOddie.com)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage Bangladeshi authorities tried to block access to YouTube this week in an attempt to stop citizens viewing an anti-Muslim video ridiculing the Prophet Mohammed that has caused uproar amongst fundamentalists.  Google has blocked access to the video in question in Egypt and Libya following outbreaks of violence by Muslim protestor angered by the film’s portrayal of the prophet. The search giant also blocked access to the video in Indonesia and India, claiming that the inflammatory video broke laws in those countries.  Tristan says: ““Broadcast Yourself”. YouTube remains one of the simplest, most wonderful mediums of expression ever created, using the very nature of the internet to allow messages to spread at a fantastic rate. Inflammatory or not, no message can truly be blocked anymore from the people who want to hear it.”  topYouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)YouTube blocked in Bangladesh over prophet video outrage(©YouTube)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market? Amidst all of the fanfare and media hype surrounding the arrival of the Apple iPhone 5, it was perhaps all too easy for many to miss the fact that LG has also just unveiled its latest flagship smartphone. The new LG mobile arrives next week in South Korea, with the company pinning its hopes on its latest Android handset. LG's mobile division posted losses of nearly 1 trillion won (£550 million) in 2010 and 2011, so it’s clear to see why so much rests on the success of the new Optimus G.  Tristan says:“I believe that Apple is no longer a computer manufacturer with its own OS, but a software company with its own hardware. As the user experience continues to skew towards what’s on the screen rather than the screen and machine, LG’s reliance on Google’s pervasive OS gives it no USP in an increasingly crowded non-Apple market.”  topHow can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)How can LG take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market?(©LG)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender? Dell launched its new Windows 8 tablet computer this week, with the new Dell Latitude 10 being the latest in a long line of non-Apple products attempting to take a slice of the fast-growing market currently still dominated by the iPad.   Dell is marketing its new slate PC at demanding business users, pushing the fact that it is powered by a super-speedy Intel Clover Trail Atom processor with 2GB of RAM, has loads of output ports and features swappable batteries for those long work trips.  Tristan says: “Dell’s tablet is a tablet like everyone else’s tablet. In other words, it’s not an iPad. What will make “other tablets” a viable alternative to the iPad will be the OS and the apps. Microsoft has definitely pulled one out of the bag with Outlook.com, so one would have to improve the odds on them doing something special with Windows 8; and let’s face it, they need to. If they get that right, then the app market could really open up to them.”  topCan Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)Can Dell’s new Windows 8 tablet be a contender?(©Dell)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals So you are in the market for a new iPhone 5, yes? You will no doubt need to know which are the best UK mobile network deals to plump for, which are completely dependent on whether or not you want to pay a premium to have early access to EE’s cutting-edge 4G network or not.  After you’ve made that decision, you’ll then need to study the fine details on uSwitch’s analysis of iPhone 5 deals.  Tristan says:“Looking at uSwitch’s price comparisons of iPhone5 prices, I was reminded of how crap I am at detail analysis and how angry I get when my phone cuts on me in Central London. All the networks are competing for customers using the iPhone5 as bait. It’s all very well catching your fish, but to keep it on the line, the line mustn’t break…”  topThe best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)The best and worst iPhone 5 deals(©EE)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list Tech execs feature heavily in the top 20 of the annual MediaGuardian 100 list announced earlier this week, with Google’s Larry Page knocking Facebook’s fresh-faced billionaire founder Mark Zuckerberg off the top spot. Twitter's Dick Costolo is in second place and Apple’s design guru Jonathan Ive is at number five, with Zuckerberg actually nowhere to be seen in this year’s listings of who’s who in the UK media scene, as The Guardian actually replaced him with Facebook’s UK MD, Joanna Shields.  Tristan says: “I’ve got nothing against Zuckerberg; I don’t know him, but Facebook, to me, represents a lot that is wrong with tech value and valuations. If people and markets can move away from users or “seats” being a form of value and valuation for any new cloud-based software firm, that would be great. Facebook epitomises this value metric, so to see its share price bomb makes me happy. However, in removing Zuckerberg from its list, The Guardian must be on drugs! Larry Page, on the other hand, certainly warrants a top ranking position.”  topTech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)Tech execs top 2012 MediaGuardian 100 list(©Facebook)
