Google Hangout for iOS

If you have updated to the latest version of Google Hangout, you will notice that there is a call option now. And yes it actually works for Canadians (for now).

Rogers down for 3 hours due to software glitch

Rogers wireless has approximately $9.42 million wireless customers and all of them were down between 6:00 PM and 10:30 PM.

Search Engine Indexing: Alexa takes out reviews

If you are a web designer-developer you have heard of Alexa. Alexa is in a way a premium version of Google Analytics. It also provides you with a detailed statistical data of your website.

iMessage for Android

There was no word about it anywhere, iSheep followers were stunned, what happened you ask? iMessage for Android was released by Apple. Wait, no it wasn’t by Apple, it was by a guy named Daniel Zweigart (Alias?). What he did is pretty remarkable. He took what I could only assume propitiatory code, rewrote it, created […]

Retrieving deleted images/photos on iOS device ISSUE

With an iOS device (such as: iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad Retina, iPad 2, iPad Mini) I haven’t had issues retrieving Contacts, Calendars, Messages, Message attachments, call history, notes, voice memos, and bookmarks. However, photos is a different story. If a photo has been deleted from an iOS device and then further photos […]
