Microsoft Azure: Cloud for the rest of us
Posted on 15-Sep-2014 09:32

Cloud computing is great. Yet anything beyond Dropbox, OneDrive or iCloud can be daunting for those of us who aren’t IT professionals. While Amazon is the market leader at selling cloud services to business, you couldn’t describe setting up a server or a website on Amazon’s AWS EC2 as easy. On the other hand, there’s nothing scary […]... Comments (Comments)

Apple Pay: mobile payments you will use
Posted on 14-Sep-2014 15:38

In Apple Pay, the first mobile payments solution that you’ll actually use Owen Williams writes: Android fans seem annoyed by the notion that Apple has NFC now, claiming that they’ve had it for years. The only difference is Android’s had it for years and still failed to get anywhere with it thanks to a mess of standards […]... Comments (Comments)

It’s not just journalists — for better or worse, design plays a key role in how we get our news
Posted on 13-Sep-2014 13:22

Originally posted on Gigaom:
Among its other disruptive influences, the rise of the web has caused journalism to become detached from the physical objects it used to be embedded in, whether that was a newspaper, magazine or book. Information flows over us like a river now, instead of being chopped up and frozen in time.…... Comments (Comments)

Posted on 13-Sep-2014 12:43

A short report from Jon Brewer at Telco2 provides some much-needed perspective on New Zealand broadband prices. The ITU-UNESCO Broadband Commission for Digital Development worries that broadband is unaffordable when the cost of a service is more than five percent of household income. Brewer measures how New Zealand stacks up against this benchmark. Our story […]... Comments (Comments)

We hosted the latest Geekzone IRL at Tuihana Cafe, and I setup a webcam to catch the action in a timelapse: Since I organised this all very last minute, the setup was very basic but I think it worked really well: I had my HP Elitebook notebook plugged in as the recorder. Used a Microsoft LifeCam H...

I have a secret. We all do. How likely is it that someone else is going to hear my secret? let's forget for a second the whole digital thing, I guess that all depends on who I tell and where. For example I tell my secret to my best friend, she's pretty trustworthy and we discuss it miles away from e...

It's safe to say Apple have some kick ass RF engineers working for them. Building phones with support for multiple bands and technologies isn't simple, and it's safe to say Apple have set a new benchmark with the iPhone6. No other phone on the market comes close to supporting the same number of 4G/L...

I've flown business class on Air New Zealand three times in the past year, however all these flights have been on 767-300 aircraft that feature an old style business class offering and lack lie-flat seats. A holiday to Canada and the US with three friends was the perfect opportunity to check out Air...

I've stayed at a few different hotels near San Francisco airport in recent years, but I'd never stayed at the Hilton. As I have Gold Status with hhonors, Hilton's loyalty program, I thought I'd check it out. The hotel is located only a few miles from San Francisco airport and has plenty of parking b...
