Vine Kids

Vine creates dedicated Vine Kids app to keep it safer

Vine has gone and created a second Vine app, Vine Kids. The app came about from a conversation during a meeting where one of Carolyn Penner’s, Head of Communications and Marketing, colleagues was talking about how much his two year old loved vine, but he wished there was a more kid friendly variant. That sprung up the idea and Vine Kids was born during hack week at the company. Now there is a dedicated kid friendly variant of Vine. My initial thoughts of how this would turn into a trolls dream app were quickly squashed when I discovered the app contains handpicked animated cartoon character Vine’s and not a random collection of Vine’s from general people. That should put many parents minds at ease. They even made the app as simple as possible where you only can swipe left or right to see the next Vine and tap on it ...

Please Stop: #Bendgate returns, this time with the iPad Air 2

Ok, this is getting excessive now. By now, I’m sure most everyone has heard about #Bendgate, the controversy which tailed the release of Apple‘s first phablet smartphone, the iPhone 6 Plus. As the story goes, the iPhone 6 Plus is relatively easy to bend in a manner which can be done even barehanded. By now, that saga has somewhat died down, however #Bendgate has apparently reared its head again with Apple’s latest tablet release, the iPad Air 2. As you can see, Marvin from Germany proves that the iPad Air 2, which measures a perilously thin 6.1mm thick, easily bends with a not entirely ridiculous amount of force exerted just with his hands. At this point, I’d like to make a serious statement here – this is getting entirely out of hand. It may have been interesting, some might even say amusing, to the see the situation that Apple and the iPhone ...

LG Screen Pixels

At What Point are More Pixels Too Many Pixels?

Everybody loves more pixels or at least the manufacturers want us to.  The war for larger more clear display in smartphones is on and has been for a long time.  Manufacturers keep upping the game with larger displays and larger resolutions.  For the larger screen devices, increased the resolution is a good thing as it ensures that our displays are sharp making everything easier to read. Look at the latest smartphone from LG, the LG G3.  It’s one of the first smartphones to feature a 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution or what they are calling quad HD.   Sounds awesome doesn’t it, but at what point do the extra pixels become irrelevant and only degrade our overall experience?   Let’s look at the pros of a larger resolution display. The obvious pro to a larger resolution display is the clarity or sharpness of everything displayed on it.  Text should be cleaner ...
