Yes you read that correctly they have announced a Switch to Windows Phone App its akin to Transfer My Data. Ok I still use WP daily but now alongside Android and Blackberry but considered the amount of people that have jumped ship over the last year and the fact there has been no flagship in almost two years fans are not happy to say the least with the continued low to mid tier handsets now available,but with Windows 10 almost upon us that will change everything wont it,well we will soon find out and hopefully all the rumours of a flagship floating around are true and we actually see one or two THIS year..
The app is set to make life easy for those who want to switch from Android to Windows and is now available to download..BUT it could have been much better in what its offering right now so hopefully it will be improved in the coming months…
1) WiFi: if you’ve already set up your Windows phone. You’ll be able to move your contacts, text messages, photos, videos, and music over directly using virtual Wi-Fi and an app that you install on your new phone.
You do not need any network, real WiFi router or account. But you need to install a Windows Phone app on your Windows Phone. The name of the app is “Switch to Windows Phone”.which you can get HERE
(2) OneDrive: if you haven’t set up your new phone yet. You’ll create a backup copy of your bookmarks, photos, videos, and apps, which can be downloaded automatically when you set up the new phone.
You need network connection and an Microsoft account.

Taylor Swift love her or hate her is a powerful woman and recently wrote a blog post citing she will not be putting her new album on Apples music service in a blog post HERE she said the following and it seems to have worked a treat and Apple have now said they will pay up which is proper order.
“Three months is a long time to go unpaid, and it is unfair to ask anyone to work for nothing. I say this with love, reverence, and admiration for everything else Apple has done. I hope that soon I can join them in the progression towards a streaming model that seems fair to those who create this music. I think this could be the platform that gets it right.
But I say to Apple with all due respect, it’s not too late to change this policy and change the minds of those in the music industry who will be deeply and gravely affected by this. We don’t ask you for free iPhones. Please don’t ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation”
In response to this Apple have finally folded and this is what Eddie Cue tweeted out this morning…
#AppleMusic will pay artist for streaming, even during customer’s free trial period
Apple has silently pulled the ipad mini from the store here in Ireland as well as everywhere else by the looks of things and this of course does make some sense due to its age and as per norm with most tech items they do have a shelf live in retail,but you can be sure to find them with resellers on the net or in retail here as most electrical stores do sell them,there may be some inventory left and it could be either pulled or sold off cheap but i would be weary with the warranty..
The tablet has been on the market since 2012 so its had a good run to be fair and it was time to move along and discontinue the model,Apple do the same with their iPhones so its nothing to worry about its just the life cycle of the product.
SipSup, the uniquely designed social glassware, launched a Kickstarter campaign today. The 42- day Kickstarter campaign has a funding goal of $30,000 that will be used to begin mass production and app development.
Using a specialized NFC chip (for Android phones) and Visual ID (for iOS phones) to enable communication between a smartphone and the SipSup glass, users can drop and view photos and videos that commemorate idyllic life moments. Our ever-present smartphones have changed photography. They are always with us and we can now capture every single moment of our lives. What smartphones also changed is how we look at our photos.
“It’s funny how I carry all these photos in my pocket and I almost never look at them” Miha, SipSup co-founder.
“Dropping” captured moments easily into a SipSup drinking glass inspired the team to create a base that resembles a ripple effect, like a drop falling into water. After many prototypes and testing, the glassware was created with a tall, curved shape, designed to fit naturally in the drinker’s hand. SipSup can be used for coffee, smoothies, a cold mojito, or the iciest craft beer. SipSup glasses are uniquely designed in collaboration- tion with local Slovenian glassworks, Steklarna Hrastnik.
All glassware from the company has a Vitrux certificate, which guarantees that products from can be washed up to 3,000 times in a dishwasher without retaining a single scratch. The glass is free of heavy metals and yet achieves brilliance of the crystal. Backers for the Kickstarter campaign could receive a multitude of exclusive gifts, including original, custom prototypes that had the SipSup chip in the bottom of the glass instead of the side.
The final version of the glass contains the SipSup chip on the side, displaying the SipSup logo, which increases visibility and ease of use when uploading photos and videos. For more information on SipSup, or the Kickstarter campaign, visit SipSup.me
The SipSup app is free and will be available for Android and iOS devices, however, you can access the app only with a SipSup drinking glass.
Using a specialized NFC chip (for Android), or visual ID (for iOS) within the SipSup logo on the drinking glass, users can drop photos to be recalled in the future via SipSup app. Using the SipSup app, you can choose favorite photos and videos that you’d like to keep personal(private folder), or share (public folder) it with anyone who taps your SipSup glass.
Post-it feature is created for so your friends, family or other visiting guests can interact with you. They can leave you private messages on the photo only you will be able to see.
Connecting tradition with modernity. SipSup glasses are crafted in collaboration with local Slovenian glassworks, Steklarna Hrastnik. SipSup glasses have Vitrux certificate, which on the basis of research of independent laboratories guaranties that products can be washed up to 3,000 times in a dishwasher and remain without a single scratch. The glass is free of heavy metals and yet achieves brilliance of the crystal.
So now having some drinks with friends and family can be fun and you can share.Head over to kickstarter now right away and support SipSup
