Nokia Lumia 635 review

Filed under: ,,,

Nokia-635-review_hero

I recently won a Nokia Lumia 635 in a Telstra staff competition, so I thought I’d share with you what I thought about the phone.

I have been using the phone at work for the last two weeks and to sum it up: it has everything I want, without any over the top features I will never use.

Wearable tech goes couture at Fashion Week

fashionable-wearable-tech

The greats from the world of fashion and beauty have descended on Milan this month for spring/summer 2015 Fashion Week.

Trends hot off the New York and London catwalks have been flooding the internet, from Mui Mui’s cut cat prints and ladylike skirts, to the ever iconic tweed and pearl Chanel hallmarks. One major difference this year is that wearable technology is on the tip of our front row fashionista’s tongues.

Yes, it’s true: wearable technology has gone couture.

Life in the text lane: China’s new smartphone sidewalk

Texting-footpath_hero

Your phone beeps. You look the screen and there’s a glorious lolcat from your BFF.

As you laugh at your phone, you march on, carefree and full of hope. While your journey forward is short as you gaze upon this amazing cat, not for a second do you consider it may be fraught with danger.

But when you text and walk, there is always danger.

If only there was a solution…

In April 2012, the city of Philadelphia took this in hand as they played an elaborate April Fools’ joke on their citizens – they set up ‘texting only’ lanes on the footpath.

And while it was just a prank, it apparently had some serious clout behind it because two years on the city of Chongqing in Southwest China have introduced a dedicated smartphone sidewalk– and this time, it’s for real.

#sharethefeeling for your chance to win FOUR smartphones

Share-the-feeling_hero

As the days get longer and the sun grows warmer, one thing’s for sure: summer is coming.

Park parties, bike rides and afternoon pub-meals, suddenly people you haven’t seen in months start calling to make plans.

Suddenly, everyone comes out of hibernation.

And this is a good thing, of course, because sometimes the best things in life are shared.

And from today that’s exactly what we want you to do – share the feeling!
