Laptopmag has published a list of 25 Most Innovative Products 2010 and they spotted Windows Phone 7 on 4th rank. As you know Microsoft is working on Windows Phone 7 and developing the new mobile OS from the scratch which is expected to hit the markets by the end of this year.
According to laptopmag:
“Reinventing yourself isn’t easy, yet that’s what Microsoft did with Windows Phone 7, its slick new mobile operating system. Microsoft took its aging, stodgy Windows Mobile OS, reserved mainly for business users, and built something new from the ground up. The end result: an intuitive [...]
According to Greek mythology, when curious Pandora opened a forbidden box she set loose all the miseries and evils known to the world. One of them was undoubtedly the virus the very name of which is Latin for slime, poison and stench (Eigen, 1993 p. 42).
What is Aids
Scientists do not precisely know the origin of viruses but some speculation suggests that viruses might have originated either as primitive molecules that invaded living cells or as viral genes which broke away from cells and became independent, parasitic-like agents. Viruses can infect most living things including plants; they lie [...]
Have you ever seen one of those lists on a tech site giving you this list of apps that they claim are the end-all-be-all of lists? The type of article that swears up and down that what they are telling you is for your own good, and that the author knows everything about all of the apps in the Market? Yes? Great! Here’s another one!
After weeks of exhaustive research (and by “weeks” I mean 20 minutes, and by “exhaustive research” I mean I asked a couple of my buddies), I’ve compiled what I believe to be an excellent list of apps that everyone should give [...]

The Chumby Classic isn’t our favourite gadget of 2010. To begin with, its chunky shape and squishy leather casing make it feel like a Fisher Price toy: My First Web 2.0 Widget Device, perhaps.
Its sheer purposelessness makes it seem like it was bought from a joke shop. And its price, most unforgivably of all, makes it hurt like a swift smack in the face.
At heart, the Chumby is a Wi-Fi internet viewer designed to sit by your bed or in your kitchen. You register your device on the Chumby website, then create your own channels from the 1,500 free widgets available.
These include alarm clocks, [...]
Google is set to announce a new push into social networking features, with suggestions that its Gmail webmail service will be bringing a ‘status’ like addition where users can update friends on what they are up to.
According to several news sources in the US, including the Wall Street Journal and New York Times, Google’s scheduled press briefing on Tuesday will bring changes that push the raft of online services offered by the company into a more social circle.
The primary change appears to be the roll-out of status updates into Gmail – extending the status option that is [...]
Almost two years ago The Filter, a startup backed by Peter Gabriel, launched to bring better music and movie recommendations to consumers. The site got lost in the abundance of more popular music and movie sites out there, so about a year ago CEO David Maher Roberts decided to shift gears and start licensing his recommendation engine to other businesses.
It was the right move. Today, the Filter powers recommendations for sites and devices with a combined reach of about 20 million people, with two more large media deals in the final stages of converting from a trail to a full license which will [...]
I’m going to keep this post short and sweet because no one likes a blogger who says “I told you so.” But, Spotify fans: Paul Carr and I told you so.
StrategyEye reports that less than 4% of users of Spotify—the gorgeous online music app with a troubled business model—are paying subscribers. StrategyEye quotes Universal Music International digital VP Rob Wells who says the company needs 10% to 12% of its users to subscribe to be a sustainable business. It’s only at the 10%-12% threshold that Spotify is able to ink revenue share deals with labels, until then, it has to pay for music [...]
Apple’s iPad may not have shocked in the way the iPhone did and it might have been the subject of sustained and surprisingly accurate rumour, but it’s certainly not fallen short of expectations. Or has it? We’ve gathered together the leading views from around the web – including our own first impressions piece.
TechRadar is already a fan of the device, but one thing we felt was lacking was multitasking – can this really not be incorporated into the iPhone OS yet? Maybe we’ll get this in iPhone OS 4 though, the iPad is only running 3.2 at this stage.
Engadget felt this [...]
