twitter_logoHow many of us actually remember the birthdays of our friends and close associates without the help of electronic tools such as social networks? I suppose only a small handful, as the likes of Facebook, Skype, et al have been used as the primary method of wishing someone else happy birthday. Well, Twitter looks like they would like to get on the bandwagon as well, taking a slightly different look at the situation by having a new option that will let a user share his or her birthday with selected audiences – the public included, although one can also just opt for a user’s followers, as well as a more closed group where “we follow one another.”

galaxy-note-4-review-02In previous versions of the Samsung Galaxy Note series, like the Galaxy Note 4, Samsung offered microSD support for memory expansion. However it seems that support for microSD could be ending with the Galaxy Note 5, according to a report from SamMobile. It should be pointed out that this is just speculation for now and nothing has been confirmed.

So how did this start? Well for starters with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Both phones do not support microSD which is something some users have taken issue with. However it was done in an effort to make the devices thinner, and also because Samsung has decided to go with UFS 2.0 technology which is apparently much faster than eMMC 5.0 memory technology used in most smartphones these days.

sony_xperia_streamingTwitch and YouTube are great platforms if you like watching video game streams, playthroughs, reviews, and more. However most of the games that are streamed are typically PC games, meaning that as far as mobile games are concerned, it is still a relatively untapped market. Now the good news is that if you wanted to cash in on that, Sony has an app for you.

The company has recently launched an app called Live Screen Streaming. It’s designed specifically for mobile devices and what it does is that it actually streams directly to websites and platforms such as YouTube and Twitch. This means that if you already have a following on those platforms, this is a new way for you to interact with your followers.

facebook logoWhen you are a company the size of Facebook, and in the industry in which they are in, having a data center that is reliable would be on the top of their list of priorities – at least one of them.

apple-watch-reserve-strapIt looks like the Apple Watch, once touted to be the next big thing, where there were high hopes of it changing the way that the smartwatch industry worked in the same manner as that of the smartphone industry was impacted by the iPhone, is not exactly all that it was hyped up to be. Sure, there were people lining up to purchase the Apple Watch, but generally, the mood was not all that optimistic. In June, Apple sold approximately 2.8 million smartwatches in the period of April to June, with an initial momentum of 200,000 Apple Watch units sold daily, but things do not seem to be growing from strength to strength here.

jolla-splitJolla of Finland has been around for quite some time, and it seems that the company is going to split its business – meaning the hardware side of things as well as the software bit will be separated. To be more detailed and specific, Jolla Ltd. will be the “face” that concentrates only on developing and licensing Sailfish OS, and then once summer is over, there will be a spanking new company that will be started in order to ensure that the manufacturing and sales of devices, including the Jolla Smartphone, the Jolla Tablet, as well as all of the other future Jolla-branded hardware products, will be done by that particular body.
