U2 AppleOK, so everybody can breath again. Apple day is over, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus has been announced alongside the really good looking Apple Watch. You have to say since the passing of Steve Jobs, the annual Apple event has lost some of its charm and excitement. Not that Tim Cook isn’t good at hosting the show, he just isn’t Steve Jobs. So to make things more exciting and to cap of last night’s evening Apple had “one more thing” to share with the audience, U2, and they came bearing gifts… (more…)

Well, folks, it was the day millions of people were waiting for. Launch day for the new iPhone!

Tim Cook called it “the biggest advancement in the history of iPhone.” It was in one way, at least, the size of the iPhones. As rumours suggested, we have two new models. There is the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 as well as the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. (more…)

Larger iPhone 6 model to have iPad-like qualities?

Published by on Sep 9th, 2014, No Comments

iphone landscapeSo we are literally counting down the hours until the big Apple event today. And true to form there seems to be speculation around the proposed devices until the very end. Since the idea came about to create larger smartphone and phablet devices many of the companies simply increased the screen size and left it there. Only a select few took advantage of the increased size to add a level of additional usability. Apple and Samsung both received a lot of praise for their tablet lineups (iPad and Galaxy Note) but it looks like Apple might just take a step further… (more…)

Uber CEO

It’s one of the most talked about tech companies in the world right now, and if these latest sentiments by its CEO are to be believed, it is also one of the fastest growing companies in the world.

Uber CEO, Travis Kalanick, has made some pretty impressive statements regarding his chauffeur-like service. So impressive, in fact, that Uber might be contributing to  healthy chunk of job creation the world over.

Speaking at TechCrunch’s Disrupt conference in San Francisco, Kalanick said that Uber is creating nearly 50 000 jobs per month. Yes, that’s right – 50 000.

“There are hundreds of thousands of partners connected to our system…[sic] We’re in the neck of 50,000 new jobs every month that are being created” he told the interviewer and surprised audience.

50 000 is no small number and considering that the company announced that they roughly create 20 000 jobs back in May, the growth rate of the company is nothing less than astonishing.  (more…)

HTC One M8 Review: The One who would be king

Published by on Sep 9th, 2014, No Comments

HTC_007On the day we are eagerly awaiting the new iPhone model we usually reflect back on the years’ latest and greatest in the world of flagship smartphones. This year we have seen some great devices being produced by the top names in the industry. Samsung elicited shock and awe with their latest Galaxy S5 and their trademark over-the-top marketing, Sony presented their hardware powerhouse Xperia Z2 and LG built on their ever increasing pedigree with the G3. Today we will see the last of the so-called “Big 5” release their 2014 model.

“But I only count 4 there!”, I hear everybody saying. And you would be correct. The missing smartphone would be the HTC One M8. Much like the brand philosophy of HTC the One M8 has quietly gone about its business. This beautiful phone is probably the hardest device to find when you walk into any Vodacom, MTN or Cell C store. Why? Because HTC is known for the best design on the market, advanced hardware and an all-round brilliant package. Bandwidth Blog was lucky enough to get our hands on the One and this review will surely back-up all of these statements. (more…)

Aerial shots of first stages of Apple’s spaceship campus

Apple Spaceship Campus

Almost a year ago, we reported on Apple’s extensive plans for their new, spaceship-like campus in Cupertino, California. And while we know that the project has been on track for quite some time, one YouTuber filmed some sneaky ‘spy shots’ of the campus from high up above.

The spaceship campus, which gets its name from it’s circular design looking very much like a mothership, started construction at the start of the year.

Now still in its first stage of construction, the campus looks set to be the biggest Apple campus as of yet. The building will sit on a mammoth 2.8 million square-feet and will house up to 14 000 employees.

It is four stories high, with a 4-story ‘ring of glass’ surrounding the entire building. It is designed to be a ‘green’ building with the roof made up entirely of solar panels.

Although it doesn’t look like it now, the building will be surrounded by acres of green space. For now, however, it wouldn’t be strange if you confused the construction sight for some weird, alien-like crop circle. (more…)
