iSlash is incredibly simple in terms of what you need to do but also incredibly addictive and challenging. The basic premise is that you have a bunch of ninja stars bouncing around on a piece of wood and you have to slash away at the wood with your finger to reduce it to a certain size to complete the level – hit a star en-route and you need to start the level again. The first few levels are as simple as it sounds but this is just to get you used to the controls. It soon gets much trickier.

Well Vodafone have now announced their pricing for the new iPhone 4 handset and contracts. It would appear that the original leaked pricing structures were way off mark. We have updated our iPhone 4 price comparison post to reflect the confirmed pricing. The iPhone 4 handset will cost £219 and there will be 18 and [...]
The iPhone 4 handset will cost £219 and there will be 18 and 24 month contracts. The 18 month contract will cost £30 per month with 75 minutes of calls, 250 text messages, and 1Gb of data. Although this works out at £10 more than the equivalent O2 contract with less calls and texts it does offer double the data. If you do go over the O2 500Mb limit just once then the Vodafone contract becomes cheaper.
If you haven’t reserved your iPhone 4 already then you may have to wait some time before you can get your hands on one. Already the dates for delivery from the Apple Online Store are already being pushed out to mid July, and today O2 announced that only existing customers would get the iPhone 4 [...]
With this in mind I was beginning to wonder if the Apple Stores will actually have any stock. I phoned round a few stores and managed to get the same reply fro all the stores I tried: “We will have stock, but it will be very limited. We will have to keep most of our stock for the people who have reserved their iPhones”.
The other wireless carriers have been a little quiet so we don’t really know what is happening there, indeed Vodafone, T-Mobile and Three have not declared pricing yet. No doubt things will become a little more clear next week.
It is interesting that when the wireless carriers created the 3G networks there was no mention of data, it was all about Video Calling. Now I had one of the early 3G Motorola V3 flip phones and I used video calling once. And then it failed. But that was way back in time, and things [...]
But that was way back in time, and things have changed since then. Video Calling which was the big selling point of upgrading to 3G died a death and was replaced by WAP and Mobile Internet. So why has Apple re-introduced video calling in the guise of Face Time?
Well some of the social media and new generation communications platforms have done very well with text, voice, and video messaging. So maybe it is time for mobile video calling to make a comeback. As far as bandwidth is concerned there shouldn’t be a problem (unless you are in San Francisco and your name is Steve Jobs at WWDC) and of course I think that is will be great for families and friends who are apart.
