On the day the #Eurozone continues down its destructive road (follow my commentary @garysballs), I am delirious happy. Not because of the pain and agony that #Syriza’s demagoguery will wreak on #Greece but because #Blackberry has overhauled its OS on ALL its #BB10 devices. And what an update! If you yearn for a keyboard smartphone get yourself a Q10. Amazon UK are knocking them out unlocked for less than 200 quid. Daily I use an iPad Air 2 running iOS 8, an Android Kit Kat Samsung S4 Mini and a Lenovo Twist Win 8 but if only allowed one on my digital desert island it’s now the BB Q10. Oorah!
Wow, just saw this technology announced at #CES2015 from Israeli company #Storedot. Apparently, it can FULLY charge your smartphone battery in less than a minute. This truly is revolutionary and a breakthrough if it can be scaled and manufactured at a reasonable price for global consumers. Yet another example of the incredible technical advances being developed and promoted by Israeli technologists and entrepreneurs. Can’t wait until it appears for purchase on #Amazon!
It’s that time of the year when I choose my "Digital Product of the Year." Past products are TiVo and the Costa Coffee makers that ubiquitously populate UK service stations.This year I choose the British Gas Hive at Home automation system. Installing this has allowed me to control the heating system in my house whilst I am on a beach miles away. It’s a great piece of kit accessed from Android or iOS. It has also stopped the more lilly-livered members of my family from ramping up the heat or water temperatures when I am out. As a result of my control of the energy expended, these weaklings have been forced to put sweaters on. Consequently, this system has saved me some considerable wedge! On the downside, I thought I was one-up on my mates with Hive. Then one of the more techie blighters installed the rival Google NEST system which it seems remotely controls temperatures at room level (Hive currently has one temperature control point). Something for me to aspire to in 2015 unless BG can up spec The Hive! Go for it British Gas...
Concise, immediate, comment on the balls bouncing around the digital technology space.
