instagram-message-directIs it just me, or are companies on a spree to introduce a change in them today? First of all, we have seen how Google has a new logo, while the Nest Thermostat is revealed in its 3rd generation. Instagram does not want to lose out on change apparently, with improvements being made to Instagram Direct.

If a company were to remain the same over the years, then it would most probably just trail off and die – so to speak, as the competition would definitely overtake them in whatever field that they are in.

In fact, Google has shaken things yet again by unveiling a new logo which you can check out in the video above.

huawei-honor-7__01Launched in the U.K just days ago, the design of the Huawei Honor 7 comes directly from another success story of the brand: the Huawei Mate 7. The Honor 7 is the new top phone in Huawei’s line of “Honor” phones, which is crafted as a premium product for their most demanding customers.

At the same time, it is designed to be affordable and retails for nearly half the price of classic high-end phones. Yet, Huawei is a huge company with a great business, so how can this all be reconciled? We took the Honor 7 for a spin and put it to the real world test, along with synthetic tests to observe and analyze how good it is, and where it stands in a competitive smartphone world. Large screen, large battery, great camera – at an affordable price. Let’s take a closer look. Read full post →Huawei Honor 7 Review

google-sign-newWhile iBeacon has yet to become more mainstream, you’ve probably heard stories of how it has been used for all sorts of purposes. Basically for those unfamiliar with iBeacon, it relies on Bluetooth and your proximity. Say you enter a store which has iBeacon. From there your phone could then be prompted about deals the store has today and so on.

As it turns out, it seems that Google had something similar in the works called Google Here. However we said “had” because according to a report from Fortune, it seems that Alphabet’s CEO Larry Page decided to kill off the project as it proved to be a bit too invasive for their liking, and that they weren’t sure if enough retailers would get on board for it to be useful.

pirate bayLast year Swedish authorities raided The Pirate Bay’s servers effectively shutting down one of the world’s largest torrent websites for a while. However it seems that despite the attempted shutdown, it did not slow piracy down one bit as users simply turned to the myriad of alternatives out there.

That being said, it seems like movie studios and record labels aren’t giving up in their attempts to have the website blocked.

wifi logoThere has been a fair amount of debate on whether Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) is a real thing, but it seems that over in France, the courts have decided that a woman’s affliction, or to be more specific, her alleged allergies to WiFi are real and that they have decided to grant her disability allowance.

According to the woman, she claims that exposure to WiFi and other electronic devices like the TV or her phone have caused her severe discomfort. Prior to this, the French courts have basically ruled against giving out disability allowance to previous claims of EHS, so safe to say that this win will set a pretty big precedent for future cases.
