Your princess isn't in another smartphone
It's Friday. You're giddy with excitement. It can only mean one thing…7 days in smartphones is back again!
Forget being "social" with your so-called "friends", stay here in the dark with as we try to make you laugh. Once. It's the best we can hope for.
Nintendo is finally entering the smartphone market. We've waited years to say it and – phwoar– that felt seriously good.
The bad news is it isn't exactly as we'd anticipated, it looks like Mario and co will be taking a back seat to make way for new mobile franchises.
The move comes after a partnership with developer DeNA who will have free reign over the Nintendo IPs but won't be aiming to create ports of Wii U or 3DS games.
Instead it'll be focusing on new titles – is that really such a bad thing? Well, probably - these things rarely go well.
Even though the Mario, Zelda, Pokémon, rinse and repeat formula can sometimes feel a little tiresome, Nintendo wanting to enter the world of Candy Crush doesn't necessarily fill me with glee.
That said, if anyone can do it with style and create some new engaging characters to go on the journey with, surely it's Nintendo. You hear that Iwata? My credit card is waiting and I'm ready and waiting to make micro payments now.
Microsoft wants your Android!
Windows 10 news now smartphans: Microsoft wants to bring its new operating system to your Android smartphone.
Yeah, that's right, Microsoft wants to wrangle your unrestricted OS, throw up a bunch of electric fences and restrict the amount of apps you'll be able to download.
OK, maybe not quite like that, but the Softies have announced plans to allow users to trial a custom ROM on the Xiamoi Mi 4 that removes all trace of the Android OS for an almost complete version of Windows 10.
It's Microsoft's attempt to steal users from the Android ecosystem and switch them over to Windows Phone, but it'll be some seriously hard work considering the reduced number of apps available on the platform.
Will anyone actually choose to make their Android run Windows Phone? Only time will tell.
Or, well, no.
One hoof forward
One hoof, two hoof, three hoof, four, repeat. Walking was becoming easier by the day as Winston's long recovery continued to drag.
"You're doing great, just a few more steps" reassured the nurse ready to catch him at the slightest sign of a stumble.
One hoof, two hoof, three hoof, four, done. Winston collapsed into the really rather long wheelchair, sweat dripping from his mane. The nurse looked at him sympathetically, stroking his fetlock, and said tenderly: "That's enough for one day... let's get you back to your bed."
Wheeled back to the side of his bed, he clambered onto the sheets and forced himself to look at the odd, faceless black brick that seemed to be staring him from the bedside table.
Over the preceding days and weeks he'd gradually been building the confidence to explore the Apple iPhone and take control of his first ever keyless smartphone. OK, the Storm didn't have any keys... except it did. The whole display was a key. It was glorious, but now it was gone.
In that time he'd learnt how to turn on the display, unlock it, take a few snaps around his hospital room and even get used to the onscreen keyboard. Apps were still a weird experience: he'd finally realised how to download them, but was bewildered by how many there were. Inside, he still missed the choice of just 11 that used to populate BlackBerry App World.
Then the day came: it was time to go home. His rehab was over. It was time to venture back out into the world, a robotic unicorn sent out to live once again.
With an NHS prescribed iPhone 6 Plus in his left hoof, a small bag of belongings in his right, it was time to flip open Apple Maps, type in Mobonia, get confused as to why it wasn't there (before finding it simply on Google Maps) and continue on his journey, but where next?
A flagship for the Shin!
Although likely not the best smartphone you've ever owned, the Samsung Galaxy S ended up being one of the major competitors to the iPhone 4.
Here are some of the highlights from the one and only JK Shin announcing it way back in March 2010. Kevin from Twitter is definitely NOT reading from an auto-cue.
Strange press shot of the week
*Read in your best David Attenborough voice*
Here we see a young stubble-styled hipster out of his normal Shoreditch habitat, discovering the phenomenon of fresh berries.
This specimen, likely known as Atticus to his friends, has lost his Polaroid camera and decides to join the modern world with the Sony QX100 Lens Style Camera for smartphones and tablets.
He attaches it to a Sony Xperia Z2 to snap some blackberries and then ask all his Instagram friends what they are.
Sadly he has yet to receive a response as none of his followers could identify them through the Nashville filter.
Retro video of the week
"You know there's a sexier way to connect to the web." That was the slogan of the Siemens C35i.
It seems the company wanted to sex up its image – if that's even possible with a NSFW name like Siemens – so it employed some proper hot bods to strut around the emptiest, weirdest lit nightclub in all of Germany.
If you can discern what actually happens at the end of the video please let us know in the comments as our tiny little tech focused minds can't work it out.
Proper bits from the site
Remember the best phone you ever had? It was likely the Nokia 3310 and we went on a journey through time to bring you back the best details we could find on it – just look how pretty it is!
EE has replaced its Orange Wednesday's deal with a significantly less exciting streaming proposition. We don't know exactly what kind of films it'll include just yet but we can speculate 70% of them will include Steven Seagal.
Dyson has invested in some new technology to make your smartphone's, and your vacuum cleaner's, battery last even longer.
And finally the auto-tuned Robocop look-a-like that is Will.i.am has teamed up with the fashion brand Gucci to bring you yet another horrible "smartband".
Keitai is back - and this week's instalment sees us telling you how to take a screenshot on your phone, tablet or even smartwatch. Sounds obvious - but so many people actually go to do it and realise they're not ENTIRELY sure how to do it.
Also a bad man steals some flowers and how you'll kill every contact in your phone. You're welcome.
How to take a screenshot on your smartphone
Being able to capture the current screen on your smartphone can be handy, and pretty much every handset these days provides a screen capture function.
Take a screenshot on iOS
You can grab a glimpse of any screen on your iPhone, iPad and even Apple Watch by pressing the following two buttons simultaneously.
- iPhone - power and home
- iPad - power and home
- Watch - power and crown
Once you've snapped your screens head over to the Photos app and they'll be residing in the Camera Roll - if you're on the Watch you'll have to grab your iPhone to check out said photos, as they'd be pretty useless on the wrist-based wearable.
Take a screenshot on Android
With Android having multiple manufacturers things could get confusing, but thankfully most handsets follow the same structure.
You'll be able to snap a screenshot on pretty much any Android smartphone by pressing the power and volume down keys together. The main anomaly is Samsung, which copies Apple with its power and home button combination.
If your handset has a physical home key try the 'Apple method' if the power and volume combo doesn't do anything for you.
- Samsung - power and home
- LG - power and volume down
- HTC - power and volume down
- Nexus - power and volume down
All your screenshots will be saved in a "screenshots" album within the gallery app on your smartphone, and if you're using Google Photos you'll find the same album in there too.
Take a screenshot on Windows Phone
Windows Phone mixes things up slightly by requiring you to entertain the volume up key with the power button. This works for all Lumia handsets - both those made by Nokia as well as the more recent ones which sport Microsoft's logo.
Apart from that it's all very much straight forward, with the images getting saved in a screenshot album within the Photo Hub.
- Lumia - power and volume up
Take a screenshot on BlackBerry 10
Yes, even BlackBerry smartphones can capture screenshots, and it's just as simple to do on a BlackBerry 10 handset as it is on an iOS, Android or Windows device.
- BlackBerry - volume up and down
You'll find your screenshots in the camera folder of your handset's File Manager.
Winston placed the Nokia 3310 phone down on the ferny floor beside him, looking quietly into the distance. Questions swirled around his mind: Who was this mystery texter? Why was someone trying to kill him? And why did Nokia ever make the 7600?
As he thought, he realised the forest was quiet. Really quiet. Not even the hooting of a stupid owl or the rustling of the breeze in the trees. Nothing - like a vacuum had descended and was sucking all the noise out of the place.
At that point Winston looked up and saw there actually was a massive nozzle pointing over the whole realm, with air pouring violently into it. He suddenly felt all fizzy, and began to panic as he saw parts of his body begin to disintegrate and fly upwards. He tried to claw onto a rock but could feel parts of him disintegrating.
His turbo-fetlocks began to shatter, wires pouring out from him. Winston's vision began to dull and blur, with myriad error messages screaming past his eyes.
Winston knew it was the end. He would never know what the Nokia 3310 mystery was all about, and whether he could resurrect the ailing BlackBerry brand. He would never get to see who would ultimately win the smartphone war - and he would never see his beloved Dahlia again.
It began to go dark. He could see his body falling into a thousand pieces. He felt a blinding shudder and then everything went dark.
"Sir," squeaked the small Finnish man. "We didn't get him."
The chair stayed silent, but the scientist could swear it was slightly quivering. Then he nearly jumped out of his skin when a huge fist thumped down on the table.
Cooking up a storm
It feels like a lifetime ago now but believe it or not, there was a time when Tim Cook wasn't CEO of Apple.
Here's his first ever launch as the CEO of the company. It was for the iPhone 4S and above is his opening speech for the show back in October 2010.
He says, "I want to welcome you to this room, that we call our town hall. This room, town hall has quite a history at Apple. Just 10 years ago we launched the original iPod here."
Sadly this wasn't where Cook got to launch his next big brand; Apple chose the Flint Centre for the Apple Watch announcement.
Scary press shot of the week
Imagine if your phone was stuffed full of people you know – and every time you added a new contact, they were squashed into your handset. Carrying around your friends and loved ones everywhere you go sounds pretty fun, doesn't it?
But what if you drop your phone? What if your device slips through your greasy fingers and plummets to the ground, and when you look down you see the broken and lifeless bodies of everyone you hold dear, pulverised and splattered like fragile humanoid egg shells?
Not so fun now is it? You monster.
Retro video of the week
Imagine being privy to the meeting where this genius advert was thought up. It must have been something akin to a scene from Mad Men.
Two men are sat on a bench, one in a lovely light suit holding flowers ready for his date's arrival, the other a naughty businessman dressed in dark hues, being boring and reading his old newspaper.
The other guy gives up on his girl and storms off, resulting in free flowers for the evil man. The Evil Man then calls his girlfriend so they can meet and he can give her the free flowers…and what is he using? It's only a ruddy Nokia phone!
It's not clear why Nokia wanted to be associated with this guy, but he's going to get his comeuppance. He sets off to give his flowers to her…but only the audience know they have the other girl's name on them. Oh, how we laughed.
Proper stuff from the site
- Apple announced iOS 9
- And Apple Music
- We went in depth with Android Auto
- Is this the world's first 4K smartphone?
