MUJI X Sensible 4’s Self-Driving Bus premiered in Finland. We got a chance to sit in it!

It’s only natural that the world’s first fully autonomous self-driving bus would come out of Finland. Finland, believe it or not, is often considered to be the ‘Silicon Country’ that gave the world Nokia and pretty much set the very blueprint for mobile communications. Nokia was founded in Finland, and for over two grand decades before Apple launched the iPhone, Nokia was the standard to beat. In fact, there’s a high likelihood that your first phone was a Nokia (I know mine was). Post-2010 whe...

Sick of the iPhone

I should have trusted my first intuition about the iPhone. I didn’t need one in my life. I carry one around only so that others can reach me in an emergency. I interact with it as little as possible. For me, the phone has become the enemy. There is an old saying “Life is what happens when you are making other plans.” Now it should be updated to “Life is what happens while you are looking at your iPhone.” Probably a few years ago I stopped playing games on the iPhone. Then I stopped trying new ap...

Wearable and foldable phones are shaking up tech, making 2019 the year of weird phones

2019 seems to be a year of innovative phone design. So far, we've seen wearable and foldable phones, as well as one phone with 5 cameras.  This wave of new concepts could be due to smartphone design fatigue and demand from consumers. Mobile World Congress 2019 showed off some pretty weird phones that go beyond the typical smartphone slab. While phone makers like Apple have played it safe, we saw some weird phone designs from Nubia, Samsung, Huawei, LG, Nokia, and even Energizer. Following is ...

Teaching iOS voiceover gestures and using the Rotor to an unsighted person

As part of my voluntary work for Ability Net, I’ve recently been working with a registered blind man to help him switch from using an old Nokia with keys to using an Apple iPhone. I thought it would be straightforward enough to do this since I had worked with other partially sighted people switching to an iPhone. The challenge is that each app has a different navigation model and it’s hard for the blind person to visualise and understand the navigation model if they have never used or seen a sma...

The other smartphone business

With the smartphone operating system market sewn up by Google’s Android platform, which has a close to 90% share globally, leaving Apple’s iOS a slender (but lucrative) premium top-slice, a little company called Jolla and its Linux-based Sailfish OS is a rare sight indeed: A self-styled ‘independent alternative’ that’s still somehow in business. The Finnish startup’s b2b licensing sales pitch is intended to appeal to corporates and governments that want to be able to control their own destiny wh...

The timing was less than ideal for all of us jet-lagged gadget reviewers, but the effect clearly paid off. Dozens of the world’s highest-profile reviewers have been roaming the streets of Barcelona with the S1...

Experts say Google has 'finally found the right formula' to help Android compete with Apple in the high end of the market (GOOG, GOOGL)

This week, Google announced that its Android One certification program, begun in 2014, has grown 250% year over year in terms of activations — which the company defines as new phones that have been set up and used.  To be certified under Android One, a device has to be kept to certain standards around how often it gets security and usability updates, and if it uses the "pure" Android interface unfettered by pre-installed apps.  In essence, Android One is Google's response to the long-running f...
