Apple Drone Concept

We know that drones are slowly but surely taking over the world. The influx of drone use over the past year and a half has been nothing short of a phenomenon and almost everywhere you look, a drone is sure to hover.

Many tech giants have also started dipping their toes in the drone pool. Amazon wants to deliver your packages via their Prime Air delivery drones, and Facebook and Google want to connect more people to the internet by using drones.

One tech company that has been keeping mum on drones, however, is the almighty Apple.

Until now, that is. (more…)

Apple Spaceship Campus

When you’re the biggest company in the world and the money just keeps rolling in, you most certainly deserve massive, grand-scale, completely-over-the-top headquarters.

Apple’s so-called ‘Spaceship Campus’ has been under construction for over a year now, and by the looks of things, the mega tech company is definitely not playing around with construction and looks set to meet their deadline.

The plans for Apple’s huge new campus was only approved a mere 18 months ago, but by the looks of things you would think that the grounds have been under construction for much longer. The company has said that they hope to officially open the doors to Apple’s new home in 2016. (more…)

5 reasons why you should watch Microsoft over Apple

Published by on Mar 20th, 2015, No Comments


Less than 5 years ago, Microsoft was an ailing giant.

Following nearly a decade under Steve Ballmer (by that point), the company itself was actually a financial success, which had managed to triple its revenue following the departure of Bill Gates as CEO in 2000. However, when pitted against the company’s greatest rival – Apple – Microsoft’s successes paled in comparison, delivering meandering successes with Xbox and Windows sales while Apple enjoyed runaway success with the iPod, iPhone, and later, iPad.

For those years, Microsoft was a largely reactive company, working frivolously to outdo Apple in spheres where the Cupertino behemoth was seen by the public as the great innovator. The pitfalls the company reached with it’s Zune media player and the release of Windows Vista were seen by many as the company’s darkest period.

windows10The announcement of the latest Windows platform last year was received with some trepidation and it naming it Windows 10 (where ‘s 9?) didn’t help with some of the confusion. Never the less Microsoft has been working hard getting W10 ready.

After a less than satisfying Windows 8 release the tech giant will aim to get similar buy-in and appreciation that Windows 95 (back in the day) and the bit more recent Windows XP received. Well, we are set to find out by the middle of this year… (more…)

We all know that Microsoft’s digital assistant, Cortana and Apple’s equivalent, Siri, are fierce competitors. So much so, in fact, that Microsoft has even mocked the rivalry in an advertisement for Cortana.

So you can imagine our surprise when we heard that there are rumours doing the rounds that Cortana may soon be available on iOS – and for good measure, on Android, too!

According to a report by Reuters, Microsoft is planning on making Cortana available as a stand alone app that both iOS and Android users will be able to download.  (more…)
