Google Cloud Print has been around for a few years now, but due to historically slow internet speeds in Southern Africa it hasn’t really taken off, but with improved internet speeds, Read More

iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c: Great, good, average.

There has been some heavy slagging off of the Apple's latest releases of their iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and iOS7,  saying bizarre things such as the latest iOS 7 is not manly enough as well as investors saying that they are not happy with the amount of innovation from Apple. Lots of people are trying to be clever, coming up with silly metaphors and similes, but my first look at the Read More

A New Motion is out and its called Leap Motion

When I was on holiday in Holland recently my Brother in-law made a pre-order for a Leap Motion. Seeing that this was something I have never heard of, i was intrigued and had to ask what was he so excited about, cause he was well excited.

BB10 Hands on Experience from a QA Perspective

The BlackBerry Z10 has been on the market for a while now and having done a full testing with Cytrus's Top12Wines application, here are some of the great things I have discovered about the BB10 OS.

Nokia’s current situation

Nokia’s current situation

The results from the quarters are in and looks like its not great news for BlackBerry coming in at the bottom ranks after Nokia. Nokia coming in 3rd place, scraping what market share has been left behind from the dominant Android and iOS.

Methys enjoys the AppCampus experience

To be honest, I thought I had an idea of what it would be like, but once it kicked off, all my expectations where changed. So I suppose the next question you would ask is, were your expectations changed for the better or worse? ….

Inside view on Whatsapp

Inside view on Whatsapp

If you have not heard of Whatsapp then you are most probably one of those fellers that enjoyed owning a Phillips Savvy (i.e possibly my mother). Anyway, Whatsapp is a fast growing, cross-platform messenger application that is quite possibly the first thing people download for their smart phones.
