Can you defend it?

Is your idea defensible?

A question any startup founder should ask themselves at the earliest opportunity is whether their idea is defensible. Put simply, this means how protected is your business (or proposed business) from competition?

Apple iPad tablet

iPad, iSight, iTunes, iBored: Why the new iPad does not inspire

Like many millions around the world, I tuned in to the Apple event last night (okay, I was watching a quickly updating twitter feed) with excitement and anticipation. I’m not a big fan of Apple, and do not own any of their devices, but I have to admit that when they call a press conference, with the exception of the iPhone 5 that never was, they normally announce something that makes people sit up and say “Wow!”

Data Theft

Have Twitter and others been stealing your private mobile data?

It seems unlikely to think that some of the more popular mobile apps would be taking personal and private data from your mobile and storing it on their own servers for whatever purpose they deem appropriate, but it appears that this is exactly what has been happening without either your permission or your knowledge.

Text Messaging SMS Flip Phone

Is your mobile screen big enough for more adverts?

The rise of the humble mobile phone is phenomenal. For most, they are never without their mobile, and when it beeps or vibrates, they check to see what it is. It is a marketers dream! We’ve all become annoyed at receiving unwanted text messages (which we very much disapprove of), but marketers are becoming more and more creative at getting their message in front of you.

Touch Me! - NFC (Near Field Communication)

NFC – The next big thing in mobile that you need to know

The technology that drives NFC has been around for a while now. You’ll have no doubt been into retail stores that have scanners on the door and all the merchandise has a little electronic device attached – that is essential NFC technology at work. So why is this important to you and what does it have to do with your mobile telephone?

Lego Car Crash

Would you buy a car designed to kill you?

Any car is very capable of killing you, whether as a driver or as an innocent bystander, however with the advances in technology, car safety improves year upon year. I have to wonder though, had the car only just been invented, I do not believe any of us would ever be allowed to drive something quite so hazardous, dangerous and capable of reaping immense carnage.
