We all know that finding a job – and a job that you actually want – in this day and age can almost be an impossible task. With so many people looking for the same job as you are, it is almost a certainty that your resumé will end up in a pile of other, equally impressive resumés.

That is why you need to stand out from the crowd – and that is exactly what the Impress Me app looks to do; helping you stand out from the crowd to land the job of your dreams.

Impress Me is a video-based app that allows you to visually impress your potential employer and address them ‘face-to-face’ without even being called in for an interview.

The premise is actually really simple. The app allows you to submit a unique video clip of yourself, telling recruiters or potential employers exactly why you are right for the job. Impress Me also has a search function, detailing various open positions in an array of different fields. You can, for instance, search for a job in the computing and IT field, find a job you would be interested in, and submit your video.  (more…)

iPhone 6 leak Weibo

Well isn’t this a fortunate accident. According to various Chinese reports, China Telecom has accidentally leaked an official looking image of the iPhone 6 on Weibo – China’s version of Twitter.

The image is the first of the supposed official iPhone 6 images. And while there is (naturally) still speculation concerning the image, it is the most official looking picture we’ve ever seen.

Adding fuel to the flame that it is, in fact, an official image, is the fact the China Telecom subsequently deleted the post. Obviously, they realized their mistake, and tried to cover it up.

However, as we all know, once you put something up on the internet, someone will always find a way to save it.  (more…)

Finally, it seems that things are changing in the world of Android phones. And this change is mostly coming from the lesser known manufacturers. Heave manufacturer skinning is giving way to cleaner, pure Google interfaces – the way Google intended Android to be.

In the past we could only find this on Nexus devices, but now many companies have heeded Google’s call to keep the modifications minimal, the latest of which is ZTE. This may actually be a very significant shift, as ZTE is not a small player these days. ZTE says it will feature the Google Now Launcher on its phones. (more…)

All fans of stock Android, rejoice! It seems that we will be seeing a new Nexus smartphone, even after all the talk that the programme has been cancelled and that it has been replaced with Android Silver.

Some rumours pointed towards the device being called the Nexus 6 (as it is the 6th Nexus smartphone and also rumoured to have a 5.9 inch display), but it seems those were incorrect. Today we’re seeing reports that looks to shoot down these earlier rumours, as the Motorola built phone will be called the Nexus X. (more…)

Although few and far between, there are some people out there who are fans of anything other than Android or iOS. Many were happy to hear Tizen would add more flavour to the mobile operating system market, but unfortunately it has seen a rocky start to get off the ground.

In an interview, Richard Yu (who heads up the company’s consumer business group) spoke about the company’s plans regarding Tizen, Windows Phone and a long-rumoured homegrown OS, and basically said they were all doomed. (more…)

Beautiful bracelet doubles as charger for your devices

Q Bracelet

It finally seems as though we are taking a step in the right direction when it comes to wearables. Instead of bulky and quite frankly, ugly wearables, companies are beginning to release that in order for these wearable to sell, they need to look good, too.

And this is exactly what the Q Bracelet embodies – a beautiful, sleek design paired with a really useful piece of technology.

Besides looking good, the Q Bracelet is in actual fact, a wearable charger that will charge your Apple or Android devices.

The bracelet has a built-in lithium-ion battery that has the ability to recharge your smartphone up to around 60%. The battery on the bracelet itself has a standby life of about 30 days and will take 90 minutes to recharge.

A lightning adapter for Apple devices and a micro USB adapter for Android devices can be found inside the bracelet’s clasp. This eliminates the need for any extra cables, as you simply plug the bracelet straight into the phone.

There are also small LED’s above the connector that will indicate the charge level of the bracelet.  (more…)
