Why do we feel safe under blankets? It’s not like a murderer will come in thinking “I’m gonna ki…ahh monkeys! He’s under a blanket!” Following on from last week’s thrilling edition which introduced you to the likes of iPoo, this week we step up Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs to safety. With your physical needs satisfied, your mind turns to security in several forms.
The Samsung Galaxy Note is a new Android-based device from Samsung aimed at bridging the gap between a smartphone and a tablet. Featuring a 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED display, Samsung claims that the Galaxy Note is the ultimate convergence device combining the portability of a smartphone with the multimedia experience of a tablet. How does the Galaxy Note compare to top smartphones and tablets? What is the Galaxy Note’s S-Pen? Is 5.3-inch too big for a smartphone? Is it possible to use the Galaxy Note on giffgaff?
In this blog (my first blog) I am going to tell you about the various laws, regulations and penalties regarding the use of a mobile phone or hands free soloutions in a phone, this is part one of what I hope to be a multi part series.
The basic needs of a human being; breathing, food, sleep, homeostasis, excretion and the mobile phone? At the moment, we can’t go as far as to say that your mobile can fulfil your basic needs. It can’t eat for you, or breathe for you (yet!) but it’s getting closer. Applications are going back to basics and these below cover what Maslow's famous Hierarchy of Needs defined as the basic of basics.
The doors to the advent calendar have all been opened, the presents are wrapped up under the tree and the log fire has been lit. It can only mean one thing: Christmas morning has arrived and there’s Christmas dinner to look forward to.

In the earlier articles we looked at how the telephone networks began, from the 1870's and the very first calls all the way through the building of the copper cable networks that span the globe. We saw how mobiles essentially came out of military radio technology and now we are going to look closer at the emergence of wireless signals and the development into car phones and the mobiles we love so much nowadays.
So we are a week into December, and the festive period is underway whether you like it or not (many in both camps I expect!) To celebrate this, we decided to start our own advent calendar, and here it is!
Augmented reality applications (or AR applications for short) are a new breed of smartphone applications which make use of geographical data (such as GPS and location information) and camera data in order to display relevant information on your smartphone about nearby places, objects and people. This information is often overlaid (“augmented”) in real-time onto a physical image to form an “augmented reality” view of the world.
As Christmas approaches, many of us are once again beginning the annual search for the perfect gifts for our friends, family and loved ones. With today set to be one of the busiest days for online shopping in the UK, we look at how your smartphone or tablet can help with your Christmas shopping: from the process of finding the perfect gift to comparing prices and tracking your deliveries to make sure they arrive in time for Christmas Day.
To ensure we continue providing the best experience possible at giffgaff.com, we introduced a few changes this past 01 DEC 2011: My giffgaff Payback and Agent Inbox, mobile site redesign and the Confirmation step in top-up & activation.
