Well the next thing is already here – the ability to connect to an online casino using your mobile device. This has been possible, but awkward, ever since mobile phones became capable of rendering websites legibly but the advent of the iPhone, Android phones and tablets has given consumers the ability to use these devices for any task.

So while you and your family are watching X-Factor or playing on the X-box, someone could be looking right at you. Continue reading →

I am currently sitting on a train from Manchester to London Euston, everyone in view has a laptop open (bar a couple of people reading Heat magazine). We all want WiFi, quick, efficient, full access WiFi – oh yes, plus it should be free too.
The price of a the ticket for two adults (i’m travelling with a business associate) has cost us around £200. We happily paid for the inflated sandwiches, and the inflated coffee. We have given Virgin trains a good day out. My knees are knocking on every table stand, and my colleague’s arms are slowly falling across my side of the arm rest.
To labour the point, WE HAVE PAID FOR THIS. Continue reading →
There was a time when most of us would only buy a Nokia. “It doesn’t matter which mobile network you give me, as long as it’s a Nokia” Was what i would say in the Carphone Warehouse.

So the mobile giants brought out their own functionality and interface. Thinking if they set the standard, then no mobile phone could rule over them. I left instantly. Continue reading →
