Samsung’s upcoming wearables leak (through Samsung’s own app)

But sometimes a leak is actually a leak and we'd like to believe that this is one of them. If only because the circumstances are so weird. Samsung's upcoming range of wearable tech, which should be announced alongside a whole mess of sma...[Read More]

Coming soon: smartphones with terabyte storage, courtesy of Samsung

Smartphones are, when you actually think about it, just little pocket-sized computers. The fact that they can make phone calls is a holdover from the days when having a phone in your car made you super-cool (or a Wall Street broker with some unusual items in your gym locker). And, like computers, smartphones constantly upgrade to faster processors, more RAM and better storage. Samsung’s been...[Read More]

If you thought that Apple was the only major tech company with some unexpected losses for the end of 2018, first of all: That’s an awfully specific thing to be thinking. Secondly, Samsung is now also reporting that it’s expecting a decline in revenue and profits for the quarter ending 31 December 2018. The tech giant released new guidance to investors, saying that it was going to miss ...[Read More]

Apple’s reduced revenues are about more than economic slowdown – it’s about the competition

If you’re still in holiday mode, eschewing all forms of tech (and thus reading this late), you may not realise that Apple’s value took a bit of a knock in the last week. The result of the first decline in revenues for the company in sixteen years, the news that Apple was not going to reach its estimated target of $89 to $93 billion for the past quarter wiped $55 billion off the value o...[Read More]

When to expect the first 5G-enabled devices in South Africa

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) is responsible for making that happen, but is bogged down in arguments about how ...[Read More]
