It's Not Finished Yet!
Poor OS X Mavericks and iOS 7 - but they had a pretty decent run, all things considered. It was a good hour or so after they were jointly announced at WWDC 2013 before the first overt criticism spewed on to tech websites and at least a week until the first damning in-depth review sat and festered online, like a piece of rotten meat lurking under the fridge.
Looking For Advice On Choosing The Best Phone?
Mobile technology has been on an upwards trajectory over the past few years. Nowadays, it seems every phone is smart, and with so many available it's increasingly tough to make the right choice. It's why for many people, it seems to come down to a decision between one or two major handsets.
Windows Phone 8 : Working with the Camera (part 3) - Camera Lens App

Windows Phone 8 : Working with the Camera (part 2) - Raw Hardware Access
The Windows Phone SDK includes a couple of key classes that support low-level access to the camera and microphone hardware. Although it is much easier to use the PhotoCamera class, if you need to capture video and/or audio and manipulate it in real time, these APIs are the best tool for the job.
Windows Phone 8 : Working with the Camera (part 1) - Using the PhotoCamera Class
The PhotoCamera class represents the phone’s camera and allows you to easily build photo-taking applications with it. To get started, you will need an instance of the PhotoCamera class.
BlackBerry Development : Pushing Data to External Users - Web Signals (part 6) - Building a Web Signal - Unsubscribing from a Subscription
There are two ways a subscriber can unsubscribe from a Web Signal. The subscription service can provide them with a link on a website that allows them to unsubscribe, or the service can provide them with a link to the RIM’s Web Signals site to see a list of all of their subscriptions and they can unsubscribe from there.
BlackBerry Development : Pushing Data to External Users - Web Signals (part 5) - Building a Web Signal - Requesting the Status of a Subscription
A successful response from the server would look like the following, indicating that puid1 and puid2 are currently subscribed, but puid3 has been unsubscribed
BlackBerry Development : Pushing Data to External Users - Web Signals (part 4) - Building a Web Signal - Pushing Data to Subscribers
To push data to one or more subscribers, the push application must build an HTTP POST request that contains all the information needed for the push and deliver it to the same server described above. The POST URL contains all the information passed to the RIM Push Infrastructure; the body of the POST is not used to deliver any information.
BlackBerry Development : Pushing Data to External Users - Web Signals (part 3) - Building a Web Signal - Web Signal Domains, Web Signal Subscriber Registration
The starting point for this is typically a link from a web page or even a registration form located on a website. On the push application’s Web Signal’s registration form, the application should gather whatever information is needed regarding the user—it could be as much as their contact information or as little as nothing.
BlackBerry Development : Pushing Data to External Users - Web Signals (part 2) - Signing Up for Web Signals
Before any data can be pushed through a Web Signal, an organization must first register with RIM to obtain the credentials needed to communicate with the RIM Push Infrastructure.
BlackBerry Development : Pushing Data to External Users - Web Signals (part 1) - How Web Signals Work
This section uses one of the public Web Signals to demonstrate how a Web Signal works from the end user’s perspective. Subsequent sections discuss how each step would be performed by a push application.

If you have any gadget junkies in your life, maybe they're craving a new smartphone. Whether you're on a tight budget or have a fat wallet, just take a look at our list of the best and most unique mobile devices to place under the tree. But that's enough rambling ... start shopping!
Holiday Gift Guide – Tablets – Aug 2013
You have to admit - there's something special about receiving tablets. Perhaps it lies in the beautiful and portable design, or maybe it's because they're best for watching movies and playing games rather than pounding out important memos on a deadline.
Wacom Cintiq 13HD - A Space-Saving Pen Display For Designers (Part 2)
Those who are familiar with Wacom's pen-enabled devices know exactly what to expect here. Performance of the 13HD is consistent with both the Cintiq and Intuos lines as far as stylus-aided input goes. Instances of lag between the pen and the cursor were few and far between in our tests with CS6 applications (mostly Photoshop and Illustrator).
Wacom Cintiq 13HD - A Space-Saving Pen Display For Designers (Part 1)
In general, the performance is true to what we can expect from a Wacom screen (and definitely a welcome replacement for the Cintiq 12WX), but the missing bells and whistles give us pause.

Tablet Operating Systems (Part 1)
Tablet PCs have many differences to desktop and notebook systems, but one of the most vexing is that there's far less freedom when it comes to choosing the operating system. The hardware, software and connectivity of tablet devices are all tied together very heavily, and that means outside of official updates, the operating system you buy will be the one you're stuck with from then on.
Asus Transformer AiO P1801 All-In-One PC And Tablet - Hidden Tablet
Hailing from Taiwan, a country steeped in tradition and Chinese influence, it is no surprise that this company places great importance on the virtues of their employees and has adopted its own set, called the 5 Asus Virtues: Humility, Integrity, Diligence, Agility and Courage.

It runs the full version of Windows 8 Pro, and can run any application that would work on a similarly- specked Windows 8 laptop or desktop PC.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 - Ever Expanding Options For Samsung Fans
Innovation is an awesome thing, but it can lead to a point where the consumer – the intended target of that innovation – becomes confused with a large variety of options. Worst of all is when those options all come from the same manufacturer. This is something that Samsung is, to a degree, guilty of when it comes to their Galaxy range of products.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 - A Mini Tablet With The Added Option Of Stylus Control
Unlike most other smartphones and tablets, Samsung’s Galaxy Note range of products all come with a stylus for jotting down notes and drawing on screen.

Everything You Need To Know About The iPad (Part 1)
In many ways, the iPad is the 'default' tablet. It's the one most people are aware of, it's the one most people own and it's almost invariably the yardstick by which all other tablets are measured, whether that's in terms of price, capabilities or content. But it's also true that more people have never seen or used one than have.
Binatone IHomePhone 3 - A Cordless Dect Phone For Use Around The Home
The Binatone iHomePhone 3 is an Android phone with a difference. It's not a mobile phone, but a cordless Dect phone for use around the home. Even more oddly it runs an old version of Android (2.3. called Gingerbread), which is no longer used by most other Android smartphones.
Holiday Gift Guide 2013 - E-Readers
Those who are predicting the death of the e-reader in 2012 at the hands of the cheap 7- inch tablets have been quite surprised this year.

Huawei Ascend W1 Review - Promising But Flawed (Part 3)
The specifications sheet clearly shows that Huawei had pretty much saving when it came to the internal components. We played with the Snapdragon S4 Play MSM8230 that powers the device in late 2011; and the Adreno 205 GPU that came from the same age.
Huawei Ascend W1 Review - Promising But Flawed (Part 2)
If you have read any of our reviews of the previous Windows Phone, then please comfortably jump to the next section. It is very easy to summarize what is next "the limited app selection, not as diverse as Android or iOS, etc. and so on".
Huawei Ascend W1 Review - Promising But Flawed (Part 1)
When Microsoft proclaimed its hardware partners for Windows Phone 8, we were surprised that Huawei was not mentioned. You know, in the period before the event, we had seen enough evidence to be sure that Chinese company would become the fourth phone manufacturer to take part in with Nokia, Samsung and HTC.
Android - Where Did It Come From And Why Is It So Successful (Part 4)
The Google Play store is arguably the jewel in Android's crown, giving Android users access to a library of software that convincingly rivals Apple's legendary App Store. At the time of writing, the two have near-identical numbers of applications (900,000 for the Google Play store; 950,000 for the App Store) and both are closing on 50 billion downloads.
Android - Where Did It Come From And Why Is It So Successful (Part 3)
Even though, from the outside, the tablet market appears to be divided up into Apple and Android devices, the dichotomy isn't actually that straightforward. On one hand, Apple is the manufacturer of its own hardware, which runs on its own proprietary software. On the other. Android is software developed by one company designed to run on other people's hardware.
Android - Where Did It Come From And Why Is It So Successful (Part 2)
To try and bring everyone up to speed, we've broken down Android releases into their major revisions so that we can explain what they are, where they came from and whether or not you should be avoiding them or not. Remember that Android releases are code-named using desserts in alphabetical order, so thisist runs from earliest to most recent.
Android - Where Did It Come From And Why Is It So Successful (Part 1)
In a market otherwise dominated by Apple, Android is currently the only notable resistance to Apple's monoculture, making even Microsoft look like amateurs. Buy any popular tablet that doesn't run on Apple hardware and it's a safe bet that you're going to be buying into the Android ecosystem as well.
Sony Xperia Tablet Z Review - The Best Android Tablet (Part 3)
The slow behavior of Tablet S is one of the main problems we have with this fold-design tablet, a performance which is best described as hit-or-miss. Luckily, Tablet Z behaves as we expected: quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro in combination with 2GB RAM is more than capable of doing most of our Android tasks, despite the Android interface of Sony on Android 4.1.2. the screen react to our touch right immediately, while the apps launch fast.
Sony Xperia Tablet Z Review - The Best Android Tablet (Part 2)
Video-recording capability somewhat lacks impression, with the sky normally being over-exposed and the scrolling effect starting when action on the camera takes place until reaching a certain level. These results are similar to what we received from a smartphone 2 years ago, so it’s highly probable that we’re dealing with the same sensor here.
Sony Xperia Tablet Z Review - The Best Android Tablet (Part 1)
It hasn’t been long, each month we would have a different Android tablet for reviewing. While Samsung still provided pretty much, the capacity of the tablets powered by Google in general has slowed down, replaced by a series of stable Windows 8/RT hardware which was normally from the makers used to be specialized in Android.
