A lot has been said about Apple’s Siri, including some interesting remarks by Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak. There are those who love it and those who, how can we put it, those who aren’t so keen. But everyone agrees that voice control and “talking” to our mobile devices is the future.
For Android users, there are a number of different apps available and the new kid on the block is Robin. Designed for drivers, the main functionality of Robin revolves around navigation, traffic, parking and gas (petrol) prices. But its makers, Magnifis, have also added in some knowledge about Twitter, reminders, and even the occasional joke.
Sony has a brand-new surprise that’ll give Android users plenty of visually enticing photos to drool over. It seems that the Japanese manufacturer has ventured into what seems to be a photo gallery application but turns out to be more than just that.

I’ve said it before – even with high-end devices nowadays featuring quad-core processors and HD displays, it has always been the “simple” games like Angry Birds and Temple Run that have rocketed to the top of the charts on both the Android and iOS platforms.

Bat-and-ball games, for some reason, attract a hefty number of fans the world over. Baseball, softball, and cricket are three of the more famous variations of bat-and-ball games, cricket being the most famous.
Surprised it’s not baseball? Apparently cricket sits in the second spot as the world’s most popular sport, next to football. The sport’s popularity is mainly due to its large number of fans in India, Australia, and some parts of Asia and Europe. The sport was the brainchild of the British, so it’s really not surprising to know that those areas got hooked with it, since these places were once colonized by the British Empire.
One of the greatest trials a couple can go through is being in a long distance relationship. Less time to see each other, shorter conversations on the phone (especially if you are particular about phone bills), longer nights without the other, and a lot more that could pose a threat to your relationship. Being far from each other is, most of the time if not always, coupled with trust issues.
Whether you’ve been together for eons or for a couple of weeks, trust is key to every relationship, especially when both of you are separated by thousands of miles.
Frequent text messaging, calling, and chatting are probably the first three solutions you’ll [...]
