Microsoft Fixes Lumia Camera on Windows 10 Mobile for Lumia 1020

Microsoft Fixes Lumia Camera on Windows 10 Mobile for Lumia 1020

Ever since some of the earlier Windows 10 builds, there’s been an elephant in the room. Lumia Camera is gone. If you’re using a Lumia 930, Icon, 1520, 640, 640 XL, or 830 (anything with Lumia Camera 5), Lumia Camera sticks around for you. For every other phone, you’re expected to sweeten up to the Windows Camera app. This is a big problem with users of the Nokia Lumia 1020, which uses oversampling technology. It…

Can Microsoft Really “Wow” Us Today?

Can Microsoft Really “Wow” Us Today?

It’s 13 minutes before the big Microsoft event and I’m hammering away at my keyboard because I have something I want to say. We haven’t seen a flagship Windows Phone since June, 2014. We haven’t seen a flagship Surface since May of that same year. With the outcry for Windows devices for enthusiasts, it’s no secret that Microsoft really can’t leave anything on the table today. Paul Thurrott wrote an article called “This is Microsoft’s…

Doctor Who s09e02: The Witch’s Familiar Review

Doctor Who s09e02: The Witch’s Familiar Review

I really love The Master’s new character, Missy. She’s the perfect character that you love to hate. When I reviewed s09e01 last week, I said it reminded me of season six, which had a very compelling seasonal plot, starting off with two very compelling episodes that leads into the finale. That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore, since nothing was really left unresolved in s09e02. The Witch’s Familiar starts off with Missy and Clara…

How For the Love of Tech Got its Name

How For the Love of Tech Got its Name

I hate the name of my web site. I really do. It’s too long. I tell people that I’m a blogger and sure enough, they ask me the name of my web site. I tell them it’s “For the Love of Tech”, which is followed up by a series of “What?” and me promptly reaching into my pocket to just give them a business card. I started For the Love of Tech, now often shortened…

AT&T Next: A Contract by any Other Name

There are loads of benefits to being a blogger with a medium sized audience. I’m not so small that I’m making stuff up to get page views. I’m not so big that I have to kiss the asses of advertisers. The thing I love the most about having an audience is that when I have a bad customer experience, I get to tell the world. It’s not just me taking out my frustrations on that…

Doctor Who s09e01: The Magician’s Apprentice

I’ve never reviewed a TV show before; however, the tech world and the sci-fi/fantasy/comic book worlds are becoming more and more intertwined. You’ll see a review like this on The Verge, right? And hey, it’s my web site and I can write whatever the hell I want. Plus, I fucking love Doctor Who and I want to talk about it. Also, I may as well point out, spoiler alert. Not only does this article provide…

Developer Pulls Peace from the iOS App Store

Developer Pulls Peace from the iOS App Store

We’ve been hearing more and more about ad blockers, their rise in usage, and the increasing effect that they’ve had on content creators. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. If you’re reading a really good article on your favorite web site, and you want that web site to die forever, use an ad blocker. I even threw my own two cents in with Another Argument Against Ad Blockers. The fact is that…

Can Qualcomm Bounce Back from the Snapdragon 810?

Can Qualcomm Bounce Back from the Snapdragon 810?

At the beginning of this year, I wrote a three part series of articles called “State of the Platform”. I wrote one for Android, one for iOS, and one for Windows Phone. I wrote that the state of Android was strong. Android was at its highest market share ever and was showing no sign of slowing down. Not only that, but there was nothing on the market that could feasibly replace Android. No matter how…

Please Turn Off 4K Video on your iPhone 6S

Earlier this week, Apple introduced the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. They with both feature higher resolution cameras than their predecessors, which will record 4K video. I’m begging you, just don’t. We don’t know yet if 4K video recording is going to be on by default or not. If it is, please turn it off.
